Though the cat flap is a great invention, allowing your beloved moggy to enter and leave the house without you having to get off the sofa, there can be no denying that an unwanted side effect is unwanted cats coming into the house doing all the things unwanted cats do.
The Sure Cat Flap, gets around this problem by containing technology which syncs with the microchip already embedded into your cat. Should a cat try to enter your house that is not synced to the cat flap, the cat flap simply refuses to open. Up to 32 cats can be synced at anyone time, so even if you have a pride of cats, they should be able to enter and leave your house as is their whim. The flap also has a magnetic lock to prevent drafts. Expect to pay approximately £70.
If you have ever owned a dog you will know that they do tend to drink gallons of water. This brings with it several problems, they tend to slobber, get parts of themselves wet, and they also tend to spill water on a regular basis. The Road Refresher gets around this problem somewhat cleverly.
The bowl is a bowl within a bowl, that feeds water through to the dog as it is needed. Should there be a surge of water from the bowel being knocked or a hairpin bend, the flow is immediately cut, thus preventing spills. The Road Refresher is stuck firmly to the floor thanks to velcro, and the product really comes into its own in the car.
If you have ever wondered what your pet does when they are out of sight, then this could be exactly what you are after. The Pet’s Eye Camera is a small digital camera that fixes to the collar of your pet.
Suitable for dogs and cats, the camera takes up to 40 photos over a time period specified by you. The images can then be uploaded to your computer, and all is revealed about your pet’s secret life.
We all know cats love to chase things, which is why mice on a string and anything that moves is a great source of fun and hones their natural hunting extincts. The FrolCat Bolt takes this one step further, by shining a laser at the ground, which is then automatically directed around the house. This creates something for your cat to hunt and subsequently is a great source of amusement. FrolCat Bolt can be set automatically and on a time limit, or it can be controlled manually so you can join in the fun too.
