Stuff for your cat

I can't imagine a cat ever using this cat exercise wheel (apart from the one cat in the video whom they've somehow convinced to demonstrate it). And yet, the creators of this have not only met their funding goal on Kickstarter but have gone well over it.

And in other unusual cat products, here's a cat feeder that uses "cat facial recognition technology" while dispensing the food so that, if you have multiple cats, you can make sure each one gets the proper amount. No more, no less.

Until I saw that feline facial recognition video, I had a more benign view of cat lovers.

The solution to the cat peeing around the house doesn't need a wheel.

And, the 'Bistro' thing? Really??? No, come on, it's a gag, right??

I started hating cats more when they replaced the iron in Monopoly.

Since we're on feeding your cat, why fish flavor? Do cats fish in the wild? I thought they didn't like water! Why not Mouse flavored cat food? And why no cat flavored dog food? How's about other dogs butt flavored? They sure seem to like the smell of that! :lol: :coolsmile:

These devices assume a modicum of intelligence on the part of the cat. Fat chance of that.

Tyrus, Gallagher, the stand up comic, probably said it best about feeding the cat: "Wonder why your cat looks over your shoulder when you open the cupboard to grab a can of food? He takes note of what flavor you have the most of and that is the flavor he'll refuse to eat."

How to make a cat use it? That's easy; put it up against a wall, place an object about half the height of the wheel next to it (one that the cat can't simply push over), then place the cat in the wheel! 😉

My cat just races around the house when he's wound up, no wheel necessary. Also, I love my kitty but that Bistro thing is crazy.
@Ty, we do not always eat things we like the smell of and, in fact, we often do eat things that we do not like the smell of. 😊

BTW, yes cats will fish. My sister caught her cat swooping fish out of the fish tank like a bear with salmon. She had wondered what was happening to the fish in that tank but thought they were eating each other till she caught kitty in the act.

Well, I like my cats and all, and sometimes they do something that could be described as brilliant in the right (or wrong) frame of mind, but is really stupid. The dogs, they're just dumber than a sack of hammers, generally. I don't see a cat eating a whole bottle of Roundup. My black lab did. She's stoopid. She was stoopid before that. The husky mix has nothing on her, and he's profoundly stupid. They both need to die in a fire they've set, but I could never hope to train them well enough to set a fire.
