Most cats want to put a fish in their bellies, but Litterfish allows for a fish to swallow up your cat while it takes care of business inside of it. This intriguing cat litter box developed by Robert Brinkmann and Dan Panosian of IOVO designs. They created Litterfish as an alternative for people who don’t love the look of the traditional, clunky litterbox in their homes.
Right now, Litterfish is in pre-order phase, where they’re trying to make sure the demand for the product is there before creating too many. IOVO designs is currently pre-selling the Original Litterfish (orange) and Modern Litterfish (gray) for $159 (retail price will be $200) and the glossy (black and white) for $500. If and when they reach 1,000 orders, they’ll produce the actual product. Until they reach 1,000 orders, orders are fully refundable.
So, what do you think? Would you buy a Litterfish? If you dig it, help a budding business start up!
Late last week Bruce and I drove to Cupertino so I could drop him off at work before Fynn and I headed to the San Francisco Zoo. As we came off the exit I saw something. “There’s a kitten!” I screamed. I didn’t know if it was alive or not, but as Bruce slowed for the stoplight, I opened the passenger door, jumped out and yelled back, “I’m going to get it.”
I hurriedly walked down the exit, but then slowed, worried the tiny black kitten, huddled on the side of the road, would get scared and run into traffic. But it didn’t move. I thought it may be dead, but as I softly touched his little head it stirred and gave a small meow. I wrapped my cardigan around its little body, gently scooped it up and walked back to the stoplight. Bruce pulled up a few seconds later and we headed to the nearest vet hospital.
This blissed-out kitteh is one of the famous polydactyl cats at the Hemingway Home and Museum in Key West. Last week we took an extremely long drive down the coast of Florida for a vacation of sun and key lime pie on a stick. One of our stops was Hemingway’s house, where we met this cutie who had – drum roll, please – seven! toes! He was sleeping behind a bench in front of the pool, and he smiled and smiled while my husband rubbed his tummy and I took a bazillion pictures. Plus, love the stylish purple flea collar, buddy.
