First of all, thank you very much for being available to keep an eye on our cats while we are away.

Check list

  • Check food timer status (instructions below)
  • Check water level (instructions below)
  • Change the litter when noted in the calendar (instructions below)

Notes:

  • There are timers for the radio to make company noise during the day. It is normal that the radio goes on/off while you are there.
  • There is a timer for the lights to simulate house presence.
  • If you wash your hands in the bathroom or kitchen sink, Phobos likes to drink water from the tap.
  • Feel free to watch a movie, grab a book or listen to a CD as you please.
  • If you let the cats go out, please be prepared that they might not come in immediately.

Food

  • It's located at the bottom right of the right door to the garden.
  • Sometimes power cuts or surges reset the programming. To check if it is ok:
    • Unplug it (it is battery-backed up).
    • Check if the time matches present time.
    • Check that AUTO is selected (from the ON , OFF and AUTO in the display)
  • If the time is not correct:
    • Depending on the cats' desperateness: give them some food from the storage (see below for dry food storage)
    • Set the current time by keeping CLOCK pressed while pressing HOUR and MIN
  • To reprogram the schedule:
    • Press PROG (something like 1 ON --:-- should appear) and set 08:00 with the HOUR and MIN buttons.
    • Press PROG again (something like 1 OFF --:-- should appear) and set 08:04.
    • Press PROG again (something like 2 ON --:-- should appear) and set 20:00.
    • Press PROG again (something like 2 OFF --:-- should appear) and set 20:04.
    • Press PROG two more times and you should be back to the time display.
    • By pressing PROG repeatedly you can check the ON and OFF times.

A dry food refill may be needed (noted in the calendar). The food bag is in the black room (the first one on the right when you are facing the bathroom). The food box is under some boxes and protections and there are wires preventing the cats from opening the lid.

There is another timer on the left side of the door, which can be used as a replacement.

Water

To refill with water, remove the base (not the lid!) turn upside down and fill under the kitchen sink faucet.

Litter

There are ready to use litters and plastic gloves in the black room, where you can also find extra litter if needed.

To change the litter, use the yellow plastic gloves to take the one in the bathtub outside and then the clean one to the bathtub.
