Difficulty bending down to feed my pets

    I had a new left hip joint fitted in 1987 that is still going strong. Most of the time it is fine unless I sit on chairs/stools that are too low/high when I might suffer considerable pain (muscle?) for some time afterwards.
    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.

    I have cats and dogs. Where do we look? Am I missing something?

    Hello dixiedoodles,
    You will be able to see all about this product at www.dinnerup.co.uk
    We have already sold this product to others in the States who have been impressed how easily DinnerUP works & the diference it makes to their confidence.
    As we are a small company and haven't got an agent in the US you have to buy from us direct, but we can ship it to you within the week.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    DinnerUP
