1. Set your cat’s feeding plan
Open the Catit PIXI app and select your feeder. Tap ‘change feeding plan’. Here, you can add individual meals. To do so, press ‘add meal’.
Determine how many portions you want to feed for this meal. Next, set a time and save.
You can schedule up to 12 meals per day, and each meal’s size can be different.
Want some help determining how many portions to feed your cat? Please have a look at this helpful article on creating a feeding plan.
By default, your feeding plan will be active each day, and will be repeated indefinitely. To skip a certain day of the week, deselect it at the top by tapping it.
This screen shows an overview of all upcoming meals. Select a different day to see the scheduled meals for that day.
The app indicates which meals have been served.
3. Adjust or delete meals
Scheduled meals can be adjusted or rescheduled at any time.
To do so, press ‘change feeding plan’ and select the meal you would like to adjust.
Enter the new values and save.
You can delete a meal by swiping it to the left and tapping ‘delete’.
4. Dispense food
There are two ways to instantly dispense food:
- by tapping ‘Dispense food’ in the app
- by pressing the cat nose-shaped button on the Catit PIXI Smart Feeder (button can be disabled in the Settings menu)
Both actions will instantly dispense one portion of food.
To increase the default number of portions fed when manually dispensing food, go to ‘settings’ and set the preferred meal size.
When you next dispense food using the app or the cat nose-shaped button on the feeder, the newly set meal size will be served.
Note: The button on the front of your feeder can be disabled by toggling the slider in the Settings menu. If disabled, pressing this button will no longer dispense food.
The audio is disabled by default. With audio enabled, the feeder will play a sound each time a meal is served to notify your cat.
