If you have a cat at home, you probably feel that your cat has taken over your abode and you are a mere peasant in it’s kingdom. If you feel this way, you probably right.
Cats were worshiped as gods in Ancient Egypt and now we do much of the same on the internet by watching, sharing, uploading, liking and creating content all to hail one furry creature, the cat. No wonder there is a growing number of creative cat-related inventions popping up that aim to make your cat’s life (and therefore yours) even more luxurious and convenient. These feline inventions will enrich both of your environments without cramping either of your styles.

The One Fast Cat wheel is easy to assemble and it’s minimal design won’t take up space in your home. It also comes in a range of fabulous colors to suit your home decor.

The PetCube is a highly desirable, state-of-the-art slice of technology for your cat. (It works with dogs too but we so not interested in that side of it). The PetCube would be the equivalent of an i-phone in cat country. Basically, the PetCube is a remote, Wi-Fi camera that let’s you talk, play, exercise and spy on your cat when you are not at home. The PetCube synches to an app on your phone which allows you to interact with your cat wherever you are in the world. It’s a must-have item for anyone in a long-distance relationship with their cats. The PetCube boasts a two-way speaker so that your cat can talk right back to you. The best part? The built-in laser which allows you to entertain your cat for hours on end when you can’t be there in person. It’s slick, aesthetically pleasing design will become the centre of your cat’s world when you not there. The latest extension on this line of feline technology is the PetCube Bites which comes with a built in food and treat dispenser- how purrfect is that?
Music for Cats by David Teie
More of a musical revolution than an invention, David Teie’s Music For Cats deserves to make an appearance on this list.
Humans and cats have a similar range of hearing, but cats can hear much higher-pitched sounds, up to 64 kHz, which is even 1 octave above the range of a dog. Thus proving once again that cats are far superior to canines. With such a keen sense of sound, why not treat your furry puss to artisinal music composed by proffesionals, exclusively for your kitty?
Music for Cats is one composer’s two-year research into specie-specific music. David Teie established that cats (and all other animals too) develop their sense of music through the sounds they hear in their fundamental stages of development. With this premise, Teie composed Music for Cats, an album consisting of only feline-centric sounds. The composer, David Teie, has created scientifically proven songs that are exclusively for your cat’s listening pleasure. The album consists of 8 different songs, each with a cute name like “Katey Moss Cat Walk”. The album is useful to ease stressed cats or throw your cat a party!
