    Just saw this on facebook and wondered if this is a future feature for your car as well.

    Oh, best laugh all day! Thanks!
    Of course, as I was deliberately led to think, I thought it was a typo.
    Plus I, (how should I say this with all due political correctness - oh screw it) HATE cats.
    So seeing one plugged in ... I'll add it to my world famous book, "A hundred ways to kill a cat!" Did you / they Copyright it? :)
    Thanks again! Brilliant!

    Flip that cat over, put a blue sky background and suddenly your cat is flying.

    How long did it take to charge him from 'catatonic' to fully charged. Yes, I will keep my day job (obviously not a comedian)

    Good to know.

    Mine also tends to flatten his ears when he's "amped up".

    I must have missed the product roll-out. When exactly was the iCat released?

    If that's the iCat, then I guess I also missed the rollout of the iCat mini.

    The cat family has a reflective tapedeum layer behind the retina. If an incoming quantum of light isn't absorbed by a photoreceptor, it gets a second chance on the way back out. Without this reflective layer, all you get is red eye from the illuminated blood vessel tree.
