I hate the fact that I have to be at work all day while my cats stay home. And it’s not just because they’re lucky enough to get to do whatever they want all day while I’m slaving away to keep them in food (I might be a little jealous). I miss being with them. Playing with them. Loving on them. Staring at them while they sleep (hey, they do it to me!). And I’m not the only pet parent who feels that way.
Lee Miller recognized how we feel while cat sitting for a friend and invented the Kittyo as a way for cat owners to stay in touch with their cat while away. Technology let’s us do a lot these days and know you can use it to interact with your cat. By using an app on your iOS or Android smartphone, you can trigger a sound to attract your cat to the Kittyo where you can talk to them or give them treats when you are at work or on vacation. Using the built in laser pointer you can get them up and moving for that all important exercise. You can even take videos and photos of your cat while playing, maybe catching that one moment that will make your cat the next big Internet star. You might not be right there, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on spending time with your cat when you can’t be there.
