If you find yourself missing Morris during the day or wondering what Whiskers is doing to pass his time…then, maybe?
It’s the brainchild of Mark de Vinck, the magazine’s director of product development. After being asked by his wife one too many times for a report on their new cat, Chester, Mark designed a device that would let the cat update her himself.
Anytime Chester swats a bird tantalizingly suspended from a wooden box, a switch inside the box posts an update to Twitter that Chester is playing with his new toy.
If knowing every time your cat plays isn’t your ball of yarn (sorry!), you could instead connect the device to his food bowl to make sure he’s eating his lunch (and no doubt, his multiple snacks).
What do you think? Is this a cute way to stay connected to your cat during the day? Or is it just a little too much information? And if you decide to make this, let me know how it turns out (pictures welcome!).
