Wouldn’t you want to know what your cat is doing when you’re not home no matter how far away you were?
Kittyo, a new product allows you to check in on your furry kitty when you are not home can be easily operated by apps on any iOS – or Android-enabled smartphone.
Once the app connects with Kittyo, cat parents can:
· Attract the cat to Kittyo through sound or direct communication
· View their cat via the embedded webcam
· Record videos and take photos of the cat while at play
· Enable the interactive laser pointer to add fun and exercise to the cat’s day
· Dispense treats
Lee Miller, Kittyo inventor, said he came up with the concept while pet sitting a friend’s cat whileshe was away.
“It just hit me; there’s got to be a way to allow cat parents to interact with their cats while they’re at work or on the road traveling,” he said. “Cats are members of the family, so it’s hard for cat parents to simply say goodbye for long periods of time, especially for the 55% of Americans who have more than one cat.”
Kittyo was invented by Lee Miller in 2013 after he came to the realization that there needs to be a way to connect cats and their parents while they’re away from home. Pairing high-tech features and stylish design, Kittyo will provide cat parents a fully interactive way to be a part of their cats’ lives, no matter the distance, through iOS and Android smartphone apps. A Kickstarter campaign will commence in early 2014 to bring Kittyo to market, and cat parents can sign up at Kittyo.com to be updated about how to purchase Kittyo at an introductory discounted price.
