The Most Advanced Pet Comm the World Has Ever Seen?

scout 5000

Thanks to the Motorola Scout, your dog’s privacy is history.

It’s not as exciting as say a 3D compost-heap printer, but pet tech is slowly moving beyond the twin poles of boring and/or foolish. Today’s gadget-loving cats and dogs have choices, more choices for dogs than cats, mind you.

Take the bleeding-edge Motorola Scout 500-2, for example, perhaps the most advanced pet comm the world has ever seen (that is, until the Scout 5000 is released!). Too bad this collar-based video cam with two-way communication is too large and clunky for a cat, or even a small dog. (Our editors are willing to overlook that problem, however, as long as the manufacturers correct it immediately.)

Filling the vast space between baby monitor and electric fence, the Scout 500-2 is a monitoring marvel that even has night vision (for the camera, not the pooch). Your dog’s privacy is history, as you watch whatever he does from a 520 foot radius. Continue reading

I’ll be in my Egg

I'll be in my Egg

Don’t bother me, I’m hibernating in my high-concept fashion bed, AKA my egg. Fortunately, the dog doesn’t have the juevos to enter this ovum. If he tries, I will make sure there will be egg on his snout. He’ll be the yoke of the neighborhood.

Cat Fashions: The Ultimate Winter Blues Solution

12[9] (1)

Brody isn’t the only cat asking to be dressed up this winter.

Brody was wandering the house meowling, belting out the lonely tones of his kitty blues. Nothing, it seemed, could satisfy the crater of existential cat angst that had opened in his feline soul.  His distorted wailing was grating at the last small flecks of sanity still clinging to the interior of his sapiens’ skulls, like remnants of last week’s lasagna makings.

MEOWWWL, MEEEEEOWWWWL!

Careening like a mini-tanker on steroids, he moved through the bays and coves of each room in the house, searching the shores for elusive satisfaction.  His warbling tones echoed off the walls and wood and into his people’s ear canals, their brains, and straight to their “can’t stand it anymore” buttons, deep in the folds of grey matter.

Finally, the grey matter spat up a solution.

“Maybe it’s time to break out Brody’s Kitty Sweater!”

I can’t say Brody likes wearing his Kitty Sweater, not like he should.  It’s perfect for him, adorable and very stylish, a neat knit pattern in lovely shades of gold and teal.   The best part is the look on his face when you slip it on him. He looks just like a kitty question mark.  What is this?

I think the comfort the sweater provides is not so much as a source of warmth as it is a source of challenge.  The challenge of how to wiggle out of it.  At any rate, it works as good as anything to quiet his case of the kitty wintertime blues.

Yes, it’s definitely Kitty Sweater weather.  And if the sweater doesn’t do the job, maybe the hot little sequined number below would do the trick.

Herman’s Healing Faster Than a Horse!

Can cats break their legs?  They sure can.  And when they do, at least they heal better than dogs and horses.

Understand, I’m always trying to find the bright side of things.  To me, discovering another way in which cats are superior to dogs is a real “silver lining” in all of these weekly vet visits and heeping vet bills.

Yes, my own little Herman Panther broke his right front leg in a cat fight in our new backyard in late June.  Herman has other health issues that suddenly popped up this year as well.  So many in fact that more than one human has said it may be time to pull Herman’s plug, a thought both me and my partner find dastardly.

Herman himself is not at all in favor of it, clearly maintaining a strong will to live and eat, at least most of the time.  It didn’t help that both kitties seemed to get ill from some new food in recent weeks.  We read online the company had some recalls last Spring that were questionably handled, a reminder that you can never be too careful.  Fortunately, both cats are both doing better since going back to the old food.

It’s been a couple of months since his cat fight, but Herman is finally on the mend thanks to the great doctors at Broadway Pet Hospital in Oakland who never gave up on him.  He’s still in his cast and our house remains dismantled of anything he might jump on (which considering I live in cat jungle gym is pretty darn dismantled).  But maybe he’ll get his cast off this month!

Herman may not be healing any faster than a dog as it turns out, but he’s still healing way faster than a horse.
