High-tech for our pets
There's a growing trend of electronic gadgets meant to make the owning of pets easier and funnier: from the bark "translators" Bowlingual to a "pollyvision" DVD for parrots' viewing pleasure or the Talk to Me treatball, a virtual pet sitter which, when nudged, dispenses treats and electronic reassurance via a prerecorded message that says ,Aei in your voice ,Aei "Good dog!"
Self-cleaning litter-maids have sensors that detect when a cat has entered the box, and "tell" the rake to collect and deposit the waste into a plastic dispenser and the Thirst alert bowl emits a series of flashing red lights around the rim when water or food is gone.
To keep your friend pampered and perfumed, the ionic pet brush releases small amounts of ozone and stays clean-smelling ,Aei no matter what your friend rolls in. And why don't you treat doggie to a facial ? (via an article in Journal now where I read that 28 percent of pet owners spend more on Christmas presents for their pets than they spend on their spouses!)
But for the pleasure of you and your dog, nothing could beat the charm of the rubber Humunga Tongue! (via core77)
