Kittyo lets you play with your pussy wherever you are

Cat owners: not content by spamming YouTube and Facebook with your furry critters? Now you can play with Mr Tibbles wherever you are.

Called Kittyo, the Kickstarter-panhandling device will let pet owners talk to, play with and even feed their ‘adorable’ moggie when out of the house. And probably share their activity as well.

The makers of Kittyo begged fellow feline-o-philes for $30,000 to finish the product and have already received more than six times their goal with 23 days to go, with products expected to ship in November 2014.

Cats + internet = traffic

The kitty-sitter was devised by Lee Miller, who was looking for a way to play with his kitten – Pasha – while he was at work or on holiday. His team at Kittyo includes a ‘Feline Social Media Consultant’.

“We are excited to say that we have a functioning prototype and are ready to move on to the next phase of getting this revolutionary new product in the hands of pet parents around the world,” said Miller.

With a predicted retail price of £127 including shipping to the UK, Kittyo comes with a treat dispenser, a webcam and a laser pointer that will amuse Mr Bojangles and his owner for minutes on end.  

A Kittyo app will be available alongside the device. This will let owners see and talk to their cats and even record videos using the build-in webcam. The app will be available on both the App Store and Google Play.

Unfortunately, it looks like the cat-obsessed creatives have made a fur-brained mistake with their Kickstarter pledge offers: the best deal of a $90 discount was available for pledges of $99 or more, but pledge $119 and you’ll only save $70, while generous pledges of $139 or better save just $50.
