Re: Sureflap connect feeder - not working properly

Found i can get two normal Sureflap chip feeders for £128 which is good. I guess also if wifi crashed or something then that would also mess up readings but this morning i watched honey eat but no record of it was on the hub thing!
Sometimes the basic things are better!

Re: Sureflap connect feeder - not working properly

I was going to do that but as it has built in scales and only certain bowls work etc plus i’d get around £100 minimum back, it wouldn’t be worth keeping. Real shame as when i’m at work i can see she/they eaten but when it’s so temperamental...... the other day it said 113g was added... the tin was o...

Sureflap connect feeder - not working properly

Anyone had problems with the feeder hub not recording properly when you top up food or when cat eats? I splashed out and bought the connect feeders so i could record what one of my cats in particular was eating. Well its always been hit and miss with what it records so i never get accurate record wh...

Re: Introducing new wet food

Thanks fjm, brilliant description mouse size portions!!!! I am really surprised she suddenly gone off the terrine. She been packing it away for couple weeks (this is jasmine the one without triaditis or any meds). What is interesting is looking at the times they eat from the microchip feeder hub, li...

Re: Introducing new wet food

So one of my cats has now gone off the gourmet terrine ... i just put a teaspoon of feringa duck and she wolfed it down! Never seen her eat anything like that. So half hr later no sign of it appearing at either end. Do i be strict and not give anymore of that until tomorrow?, to make sure no reactio...

Re: Best way of giving liquid meds in syringe into mouth?

It’s a chicken flavoured liquid/gel, very expensive and hoping insurance will keep covering the cost.
My technique at mo is ok, until honey finds another way to say no :roll:

Re: Introducing new wet food

I have knowingly avoided anything with turkey as the dry she was on was jwbl dry turkey and rice. I do know theres every chance there...

Re: Introducing new wet food

Re: Introducing new wet food

Thanks all Veal is lighter than lamb? I do think i need to give any food bit longer.

I not fed either of them beef since ...

Introducing new wet food

Is the right/best way to inttoduce new wet food a teaspoon in a separate dish Or a teaspoon mixed in with normal food? Also if beef upsets cats tum i am thinking to never try veal but i have read it different enough to possibly be ok? Bit like chicken being different to turkey, apparantly...... any ...

Re: Best way of giving liquid meds in syringe into mouth?

Should my cats head be held up when using syringe like u would with pills? One video says to, others say not to incase she doesnt swallow the liquid and kind of inhales it the wrong way?

I might give that recipe a go thanks. Have you used the recipe? Vinegar?, i didn't think that could go in?, but i can imagine it just breaks down in cooking process.

If i ever have icecream, she has always tried to have some , would sometimes let her have a few licks so yes she prob would like it.

Re: Best way of giving liquid meds in syringe into mouth?

Hi fjm, honey does just stand fairly quietly but what she does is as soon as syringe goes in corner of mouth she opens mouth wide, uses tongue to shift the syringe, she then chews it and constantly fiddles. It quite funny to watch but i not sure how to keep her mouth still? I have been putting the s...

They should make people take vows when they have pets, for better /worse, sickness/health. All so tricky and hard to manage and get right...

Best way of giving liquid meds in syringe into mouth?

Ok so for last couple months i been struggling to get pills in cat, not opening mouth, spitting them out, hiding them. Now changed to liquid steroids and she has clocked what it is ! She now lets me put syringe in mouth but plays with it moving all around her mouth with tongue so it doesn’t stay in!...

Sorry you are having similar issues
How quickly will a cat usually react to food that doesn’t agree with them with the rear end?
She not eaten a thing today. Getting Bit worried tbh
