Petnet Faces Angry Owners After Outage Leaves Dogs, Cats Hungry

Los Angeles-based PetNet, which develops a connected, pet feeding device, is facing widespread complaints, after its automated pet feeding device malfunctioned over the last few days. According to Petnet, it experienced a system failure last week which caused "a loss of scheduled feeds" and "failured remote feedings", which apparently left pets without food. Petnet is backed by Black River Ventures, Aspiration Growth, iRobot and Amazon Alexa Fund, along with others.
