Cat Exoskeleton

Your cat now comes when called....

The cat exoskeleton attaches over the cat and normally is not activated. However, should you wish your cat to come to you, a simple push of the remote activates the motorized exoskeleton, which then "walks" your cat home.

       Uhm if the exoskeleton does everything by its self then what do I need the cat for?

       Thanks for the tale phlish, I can't image how you could get the tape onto all four feet...one would be hard enough. The Cat_Exoskeleton actually suits up the cat without human intervention,moving in very slowly and ingratiatingly at nap time( it's heated and has a purr box.)

       I really dislike cats; in this country they are an environmental menace that the government simply refuses to regulate or ban entirely.   

       But I have to bone an idea that suggests cruelty to animals. We all know how much a cat would despise it's little exoskeleton cage, and how nuts they would go when the frame started forcing the cat to move around. that's just cruel.

       If your cat like those biscuity cat treats, try this: Next time you want your cat to come home, rattle the box outside for the cat to hear. I've never known this to fail (Note: Only *their* box of biscuity treats works - Cornflakes and Wheato's probably won't)

       Just imagine a bird cage with legs.

       A neater solution would be to insert electrodes directly into the cerebellum from where the legs are controlled, thereby taking direct control of the cat itself.

       A Remote Control Cat? Superb! I'd have one of them.
