Sorry cat lovers, but the article by Camryn Rabideau says dogs. However, some items could be cat inclusive, like this one:
SureFlap Microchip Pet Door
Do you frequently feel like you’re a doorman for your dog? Save yourself the hassle of letting your pet in and out of the house all day with the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door, which retails for around $85. This high-tech door is designed to read your pet’s microchip. It only unlocks when an approved chip is in range, so you never have to worry about wildlife or stray animals getting into your home. You can even program the door to lock/unlock at specific times, in case you don’t want your pet outside at night or while you’re at work. No microchip? SureFlap also sells programmable collars you can use as an alternative. (Can’t cats be microchipped too ) ?
Or this one:
PetChatz Interactive Pet Camera
If you’ve ever wished you could video chat with your dog while you’re at work, now you can! The PetChatz Interactive Pet Camera is a videophone that lets you have two-way calls with your pet, and it can also dispense treats and calming aromatherapy scents. The main camera unit costs $350, and you can purchase separate “PawCall” buttons that allow your pet to call you. How cute is that ? OK, cute. Aren’t cats cute too ?
OK, this one is dog only. Really !
The Bissell BarkBath is a 2-in-1 portable dog wash and deep cleaner that can wash your carpet, furniture, upholstery or even your dog! The special spray nozzles get water down to your dog’s skin for a deep clean, all while providing gentle suction that pulls dirt and water back into a separate dirty water tank. This $200 system allows you to give your dog a bath just about anywhere without making a mess, and it can also be used as a portable carpet cleaner to boot.
Any self-respecting cat would turn up her nose before getting into this contraption (and head for the hills !)
