Back in 2011, Purina Friskies brand cat food launched the first game for the iPad was specifically designed for cats. That particular game had little fish that swim around the screen and change direction each time a cat smacks them with a paw.
Reports of an amazing story concerning a lost cat have turned up this week. A couple who owned a four-year-old cat named Holly took her on vacation, 200 miles from home. While they were there, the cat ran away and they couldn’t find her anywhere.
If you’re a dog person, you may have wondered just how wild packs of wolves turned into your sweet and cuddly lap dogs. You can pet Fido behind the ears, scratch his belly, and throw sticks, but you better not try that with a wolf or it might eat your face off.
Even if they drive us nuts most of the time, we still love our pets. And while I prefer to forget that my insane dog exists while I’m on vacation, some of you want to check in on your dogs and cats from afar.
Now that you’ve already put your baby to work on buffing your floor until it’s shiny (thanks to the Baby Mop), why not do the same with all your four-legged pets?
After all, they’re on all fours all the time and walk around a lot.
I agree with the old adage that dogs really are man’s best friend. Since best friends goof around together all the time, I don’t think your canine buddy would mind if you dressed him (or her) up in some funny rider costumes this Halloween, right?
Did you know that some cats sleep up to twenty hours a day? No wonder some of them can grow as fat as forty pounds (that’s what the world’s fattest cat weighed before it up and died of pulmonary disease).
I always hate it when earbuds pop out of my ears, especially when I’m on the bike or on a run. UK designer Michael Young has come up with earphone design that will probably stay put, no matter what you are doing.
A lot of pet owners have the nasty habit of not cleaning up after their animals. It’s annoying, it’s impolite, and it’s especially irritating to the people who end up stepping on the dog doo. Some countries have resorted to setting up separate bins for people to dispose of their dog’s wastes, but many mistake it as being a regular old trash can and instead fill it up with all sorts of other trash, leaving no room for its intended contents.
The way we treat our pets like our children, most domesticated animals are lazy enough already. But judging by the looks of this wacky invention, we’re ready to take things to a whole new level – the second floor.
You’ve heard of telepresence, where you can attend meetings while not actually there by using a robot proxy, but using a robot proxy to play with Fido is a new one to me. That’s just what Jordan Correa and his wife have done here.
It has been several months since we talked about the Nintendo DS game Wappy Dog. The game is now officially available to purchase just in time for holiday gift giving. If you have kid that wants a real pet, you might start them with this virtual pet simulation.
A long time ago, we had a dog for my kids before it escaped from the yard and was never seen again. The thing I hated most about the dog was having to scoop the poo out back so my kids didn’t get into it.
Some people take their pets very seriously. For instance, this little old lady down the street walks her dog and talks to it like a person. Generally, she’s telling the dog to hurry as it drops a deuce in my yard.
I recently got a new puppy (I named her Remy Martin, but of course I’m not going to let her grow up to be an alcoholic, no sirrie!) and I just adore my little furball.
I rarely leave her at home alone, given that she’s still 8 weeks-old and all, but sometimes, there’s just no one left at home to care for the little tyke.
