The folks at Bide-a-Wee animal rescue in Manhattan have recently introduced the Kitty Play Date site, where online users can view and interact with kitties at the Bide-a-Wee facility. The kitty playroom is now equipped with a webcam and three mechanized toys from iPet Companion that users can activate from the comfort of their own homes.
It should be noted that users are only allowed to play for two minutes at a time. There is usually a short queue of about 5-8 minutes, and, as is the nature of cats, there’s no guarantee they will take interest; however it’s still fun to see the kitties streaming in real time, even if they don’t want to play. You can also purchase these remote toys from iPet Companion and give your pet a similar set-up at home.
We have a local friend-of-a-friend situation- there are three cats here in Astoria that need to re-homed due to a child with severe allergies. The family is heartbroken and really want to find a loving home for their cats. If you are interested in one or all, please contact us ASAP and we’ll get more details for you. Here are a few small pics:
