Monday, home with one sick kid.
Tuesday, home with two sick kids.
Wednesday, home sick with three sick kids.
You see where this is going, right? Come Friday we’ll be on the news. “Local family harbors mutant strain of plague! Film at Eleven!”
In my delirium, however, I can’t stop laughing at this picture. Is it a cat litter box? A rice cooker? A cat space capsule? Some demonic combination of the three?
Well once I’d seen it there was no going back. I had to keep clicking around Amazon… Big mistake. I found out that there are lots of robo-cat-boxes out there. And they all sound disgusting. Check out this review entitled “An expensive way to smell poo” that had me laughing until I cried.
You will become more familiar with your cat’s feces every day as the cat genie gently fills your home with the aroma of baking excrement. Plus, you get to pay over $300 for technology that was “designed” and built for less than $2. The “processor” unit was designed in 1967 and allows all the functionality of the most advanced microchip devices of its era. It has both on and off modes. (Note: off mode available only while unplugged.)
To say something positive, the customer support line is manned by kind, well-meaning kids who really do feel badly that you’re having a hard time with your mechanical poo soup maker.
Do yourself a favor and read the whole review here. And then come back and tell me how the hassle of these foul sounding devices is better than scooping cat poop.
