We all have bending problems with knees and hip joints, old or new.
The thing that is really difficult for me is bending down to pick up objects from the floor. I have various 'grabbers', (helping hands), strategically placed around the house to pick up dropped objects, but feeding my cats is a different kettle of fish. (Couldn't resist the pun!)
Trying to recover dirty plates from the floor is bad enough, but trying to put down new food and water is impossible, especially with a 'starving puss' nudging me.
That is when I thought other pet owners must be having similar problems and invented DinnerUP. To date it has been a big hit with joint replacement patients. Have a look and let me know what you think.

Hello dinnerUp. I feed my cat this way. I am using one of those plastic dust pans with stick handle. I bought the two seperate pieces from the Dollar Store. I simply put the cats dish onto the pan end and lower it to the floor by holding the handle. No bending whatsoever. I pick up the dish the same way by pushing it onto the pan with my foot. Sometimes I even leave the dish sitting on the pan until the dish is empty. Although I am once again able to bend right down to the floor, I don't like to do it too many times per day, just in case I am overdoing it.

Hello Annemarie, thank you for your post and I'm sorry I've been so long in replying to you but I lost my p***word!
Your way of feeding your pet is fine in the short term and I know from other people like us there are many ways to get around this problem....but my point is answered in your last line; "I don't like to do it too many times per day, just in case I am overdoing it."
With DinnerUP there are never too many times, it's so easy, today, tomorrow, next week, next year!
No more may-be may-be-not...think about it.
Yours DinnerUP
