You Lazy Bum: iFetch Is An Automatic Ball Launcher For Dogs

ifetch-automatic-ball-launcher-for-dogs-xl

You get a dog, you’re supposed to do a few things. Give it exercise, for instance. If you’re too lazy to go jog with it, it’s still acceptable to go outside and just stand around playing fetch with him. But if even that’s too much effort, you’ll be delighted to find out about iFetch. It’s a simple to use automatic ball launcher that can be set to 10, 20, or 30 feet. You simply teach your pup to bring the included miniature tennis balls to the wide opening, and it’ll toss the ball for him to fetch with no interaction needed on your part. It’s $100 and comes with two balls, while a set of 5 more is $10.

Pet Safe Pet Paint: It Exists

white

Some of your will roll their eyes and want to tell us that this has been around for years. It probably has, but guess what, we’d never seen it. Shame on us, we suppose. But for those of you equally in the dark, PetPaint seems to be the most effective way to strip your pet from whatever dignity a pet might have. It’ll make you look like that guy (or gal) but hey, if getting noticed is your thing, you’re but a few clicks away. This product is safe for the animals to lick and chew, and is usually applied with the use of a stencil. A can of spray costs around $10, while a stencil is $5.

Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures of dogs being treated like art class projects.

Pug Stars in Adorably Hilarious Remake of ‘Home Alone’

Home Alone is one of those Christmas classics that never gets old. In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen this, it’s about a kid named Kevin who gets left behind when his family goes on vacation in Paris. He lives it up and does everything he normally wouldn’t be able to do with his parents around–until a pair of burglars come and try to rob his house. That’s when the fun begins.

But what would the movie be like if Macaulay Culkin were replaced with a pug? With the same plot, the same characters, different actors, the result is as hilarious as it is adorable. This puppy-themed remake of the movie was done by The Pet Collective.

Ca$hcats is a Website that Shows Cool Cats With Cold Hard Cash

Cashcats

Apparently, taking pictures of your cat while it’s buried in piles of cash is a thing now–so much so that a website called Ca$hcats eventually came to be. It’s a site that accepts submissions from folks all over the world who have two things: a cat and lots of money (or lots of $1 bills.) Some pictures contain combo cats and stacks of cash, while others have a single feline curled up on a cushy bed of paper bills.

Wouldn’t it be funny though, if the cat decided to stretch and proceed to scratch the bills apart mid-shoot? Yeah, I bet that would put this strange trend to a stop if it happened enough to owners with now-empty wallets.

Head on over to Ca$hcats to check out some shots of cats with their cash.

Uber Delivers Adoptable Kittens On-Demand for National Cat Day

Uber Kittens

Every year, people all across the country celebrate cats and their awesomeness on October 29, which is known as National Cat Day. This year, Uber collaborated meme site Cheezburger to do something different. They set up a temporary service which ran for five hours to deliver adoptable kittens on demand to people who wanted one.

In case you haven’t heard of them, Uber is an app that lets people call for a car service with a tap of a button. They updated their app with a “KITTENS!” button last week, where users can instead opt to have a cat delivered instead of a car for $20. For that amount, users were treated to fifteen minutes of snuggling with a kitty plus cupcakes from Ace of Cakes while supplies lasted. They also had the option to adopt the kitten if they wanted to.

The best part? All of the proceeds were donated to local animal shelters. More details about the event that was here.

Aqualibrium: Where Fishes Grow Plants and Where Plants Grow Fishes

Aqualibrium

In a world of constant imbalance, it’s refreshing to see something that attempts to incorporate equilibrium into its very core. I’m talking about Aqualibrium, which is a combination planter and fish tank of sorts that allows fish to grow plants and vice versa. The top part of the tank is where various plants are growing, while the fish live at the bottom tank.

Water from the fish tank, which contains fish poop, among other things, is pumped up and carried to the upper tank, where it serves as fertilizer for the growing plants. On the other hand, the water is effectively filtered through the plants’ growing medium, where ammonia-neutralizing bacteria are found, so that the fishes have cleaner water to swim around in.

Cat Lounge Doubles As Cat Scratcher

71d-4V8xb6L._SL1500_

Oh sure, this has been around a long while. But it’s new to us, and surely some of you. It’s called the PetFusion Cat Scratcher Lounge and if you’re the owner of happy cats and unhappy furniture, this might be for you. Made from sandwiched layers of cardboard, the thing lets your feline friend both nap (as this is a cat’s primary bread-winning activity) and sharpen his claws (which he does, regardless of pay). It has attracted over 1,300 5-star reviews on Amazon, so we’re hoping it’s a sign cats like it. It weighs 10 pounds, so it’s unlikely your kitty will move it around the house or otherwise mess up your Feng Shui.

$50.
