Purrfect Cat Mood Detector — 'Check on your cat's state of mind without disturbing it'


Say what?

From the website:

    Purrfect Cat Mood Detector

    Watch your cat light up with the Purrfect Mood Detector.

    Wouldn't you like to see when your precious cat is happy?

    Takara's proprietary technology allows you to see when your cat is in a good mood!

    Purrfect Mood Detector contains a microphone and a red LED light which illuminates when the device detects the cat's happy purr.

    Simply place the Purrfect Mood Detector with the enclosed collar on your cat.

    Or, you can replace the enclosed collar with your cat's favorite collar!

    You too can be in a perfect mood when you see the Purrfect Mood Detector illuminate on your beloved cat!

    Works best with cats 6 months or older.

    Battery included


Alas, the item's being discontinued so there's a fire sale going on.

Regularly $14.99, now reduced to $8.99.

Don't hem and haw until next month when you decide it's the perfect gift for that special someone — because they'll be long since sold out.

And don't say I didn't give you fair warning.

And if we don't hear from Flautist re: this, someone better go knock on her door and make sure she's okay.

The smaller the bit of tail-tip moving the more content the cat.

Do they all play the tail-game? Where if you hold their tail they'll tug it free, then can't avoid putting it back again and will continue the game getting more an more irate until they stalk of.

Sorry Flautist. You really need those cookies! You know I have had about that kind of day today though. Yesterday was almost PURRFECT? but then it was my birthday.=) I dreaded turning 21 again! For some reason I thought I was getting old? Never mind the fact that I am a grandma and all I just never thought of myself that I would be this age? I should have went to the dentist and got some bling added to my already dazzling smile.=(#) hahaha I am sure that is what you were doing there. Never mind the darn crowns. Get that BLING instead!!! Hope you have a better day today!!

Oh yeah, I forgot -- I love the part about checking on the cat's state of mind "without disturbing it." When you just walk through the room, or breathe, you disturb MY cat. She wouldn't show her cards for all the tuna in the ocean -- that's howcome she lays on her tail all the time.

And in addition to having an irascible feline, it poured rain all day, buckets & buckets, and when I got out of my car to keep a dental appointment I got soaked -- not damp, not wettish, but sopping, dripping SOAKED -- and stepped right square onto a fish, yes a real, approx. 5-inch long FISH (!?!)(dead), then had to sit in the dentist's chair shaking and FREEZING to death while I was told I need about four g's worth of crowns replaced in the back, then home through a thunderstorm of Wagnerian proportions, only to find that for some damn reason I can send but not receive emails and this has been going on for a week and I don't even know how on earth to begin to fix it. Sniff. Whimper...

So sorry. Just snapped. Don't know what got into me. It won't happen again. I'll go now. Just leaving.

Three things:

1. Put one of these on any normal cat and it will never, ever purr again.

2. Your standard cat has a mood detector built right into it, growing out of one end: the tail. It doesn't matter what the cat SAYS, pay attention to the tail.

3. I never met a cat that wasn't perfectly capable -- indeed, often perfectly happy -- to bite the living sh*t out of you while purring violently.
