For all the pet lovers there is now a new website entirely dedicated to their needs, petgadgets.com.
Besides the usual products like beds, bowls and feeders, pet doors, etc., you can also find a range of more or less useful items. For example, you might want to entertain your dog with the HyperDog Tennisball Launcher ... while you can comfortably sit down and read the paper.
In any case while the HyperDog will keep your dog (and not you) in shape, you can give your cat a spa with the Hagen Living World Cat Spa, afterall it will cost you only $19.99. What I don't understand though, is how this apparently small plastic disc is going to provide so much pleasure to your furry friend.
Ripple Massager: Solid sculpted ripples perform unlike any brush. Deep penetration of fur provides intense rubbing pleasure to head, neck, and face area. Accu-Pressure Pads: A unique sensory experience. [...] Gum Stimulator: An irresistible challenge to cats--blocks access to catnip. Gnawing of the gum stimulator massages and cleans teeth and gums. Rubbing cheek and chin areas stimulates glands. Body-Stroke Groomers: For self-grooming and massage. Stimulate face and back glands while providing an easy-access, intense massage.
And if the "ultimate cat spa experience" and the Tennis Ball Launcher aren't going to make you feel less guilty for not dedicating enough time to your pets, you can always entertain them remotely with the PeTalk Pet Voice Mail. For $24.99 you can purchase this petgadget that will allow you to record up to a 10 seconds message (you don't want to say too much) for your pet, which can be re-played at regular intervals (up to once per hour) during your absence. Now, that will definitely make your pet feel loved!
On the other hand, if you happen to spend more time at home, or maybe even work from home, then your cat might accidentally walk on the computer keyboard and enter random commands and data, damage your files, and even crash your computer. If this is the case all you need is PawSense ($19.99), a simple application that will detect and block cat typing, and also help train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard by emitting an annoying sound every time it goes for some fun cat typing.
