Did you know that on Gallifrey, all cats roam free? Well, you shouldn’t, since I just made that up. But I have it on good authority that the next time the good Doctor regenerates, he’s going to be turned into a cat.
The first time I came across the concept of a robot dog was Doctor Who’s pet dog K-9, and then Rags, the talking dog in Woody Allen’s Sleeper. While both of these science fiction dogs were charming in their own ways, they’ve got nothing on the latest version of Sony’s Aibo robot companion, a true wonder of 21st-century engineering.
Our dog has a plethora of toys, yet he always goes for the socks. Why is that? DivvyUp socks might have been around for a while, but I just ran across it while looking for something cool to get my daughter for her birthday.
That’s no moon. That’s a planet destroying space station piloted by a kitten! The Star Wars Death Star Pet Cave is perfect for your small animal, whether it’s Kitty the Hutt or Grand Moff Barkin. This officially-licensed basketball-sized Death Star is just too adorable with your pet peering out from within, as if they are about to power up the weapon’s super lasers.
Doctor Who fans with a cat who likes to scratch stuff up and live inside cardboard boxes will want to grab this cat house (no, not that kind of cat house). This cardboard TARDIS looks just like a squatty brown version of the good Doctor’s primary means of travel.
Patting your dog is fun, but if you have a needy dog, it can become a chore. If only there was a robot that would pat our dogs for us. Fortunately, there is! Engineer James Cochrane has made a machine that will pat your animal and even give them a treat.
People spend huge amounts of money on stuff for their pets. If you are the sort that wants to keep an eye on your pet constantly, the Furbo might be just the ticket. Furbo is camera that lets you keep an eye on what your dog is doing, and toss treats to them via a connected app.
Would you pay $80 for a laser pointer? It won’t even fit in your pants or help you pretend you’re Iron Man. But the Obi could keep pets off your back, and entertain them when you don’t have the energy or even when you’re not around.
Normally I find people who dress their pets up in costumes to be incredibly annoying. However, I wouldn’t feel that way if I ran across someone with their greyhound or whippet dressed up in this AT-AT walker costume.
My cat is kind of a dick. She has multiple scratching posts around the house and she still likes to scratch on the furniture. She also likes to sit right on my hands if I am typing on the laptop, and then bite me if I move.
The Woof Washer 360 is a hula hoop shaped gadget that sprays water so you can wash your dog more easily. Just connect your garden hose and you can get Rover clean super fast.
You can spray soapy water through it, or clean water for rinsing.
It turns out you don’t need to turn your pets into quadcopters to immortalize them. Just send Cuddle Clones a picture of your buddy and it will make a plush doll or sandstone figurine based on your beloved animal.
Cats love to play with laser pointers. This is the only reason I got my kids a cat. If you like to shine the red dot on things so your cat goes crazy, but you are too lazy to actually work the pointer, ThinkGeek has your fix.
Some people turn trash into money (tote bags sewn from discarded juice packs, for instance.) Then there are those who find ways to turn death into life. Not the raising-from-the-dead type of things, because that’s obviously impossible, but the green type of transformation, such as the one that happens with the Bios Urn.
You’ll find these miniature ties hard to resist, even if you’re not a fan of dressing your feline in pet clothes. Your cat probably won’t appreciate you snapping on the tie in the first place, but if it wears as a collar, so you shouldn’t have much difficulty putting it on even though kitty may try to resist.
