Wanted: Really sensitive scale [Feb. 10th, 2010|04:52 pm]

I'm trying to find a large & sensitive scale for weighing young and older kittens, needs to be accurate to the oz or 1/10th pound and be able to measure from 0.1 lb/oz up to at least 15 lbs and at least a square foot in size.

I have a food scale which works well for newborn kittens but if you've ever tried to weigh a 2 month old hyperactive kitten on a food scale, you'll know that a typical food scale simply won't do.

Human scales won't work and atypical baby scales from the major chains are a joke.

Anybody got any leads?

Go on Amazon and look at postal scales. You can put a bigger platform or a mixing bowl on them, zero the weight, and then weigh the cat.

This one has a sensitivity of .2 oz.

All of my weighing is of small inanimate objects, so I can't help from experience.

Postal scales ... didn't even think of those!
