It’s called the iPet Companion and it allows you to control kitty toys remotely so you can keep otherwise bored cats entertained. Via the FAQ: “A signal is relayed from the servers at iPet Companion to the control boxes situated within the home (located anywhere in the world) – that allows for users to see and move the toys, with minimal time lag” says Scott Harris, founder and owner Reach-In, the Idaho-based company that developed the software. It seems to be getting use from shelters across the country but is also available for home use. It will set you back $349.95 plus postage for the cat version, $395 plus postage for dogs, and a $4.95 monthly service fee for your own interactive webpage. You must supply the actual toys. And no, you don’t get your money back if your cat thinks it’s stupid, no matter how great you think it is.
