World's most mean-spirited cat feeder (it's not even close)
From the New York Times:
"[A company named AiKiou has] redesigned chow time to give pets an intellectual challenge while making sure they don't eat too fast.
AiKiou (pronounced as I.Q.) sells food-delivery systems for dogs and cats (think: food bowl) that work with the animals' natural problem-solving skills, said Alexandre Tremblay, co-founder of the family-owned company in a suburb of Montreal.
There's the company's Stimulo Interactive Cat Feeder [top], which has a series of tubes too small for a cat to put its face into. Instead, it must use its paws to fish out the morsels inside.
The feeder, Mr. Tremblay said, fits the true nature of cats. "They should eat as in nature," he said. "We take our cats and dogs and make them sit the whole day, then throw them food. That is pretty unhealthy."

I might have to consider this. My cats eat WAY too fast and I have to load their food bowl up with their toys so that they have to snout around it and slow the hell down. Sometimes I hide their food in a half dozen bowls around the house for them to find...
This might be the next step to keeping that catholes happy and sharp so they can kill me in my sleep.
