Cat Vaper

Isn't technology wonderful ?

Nicotine is highly toxic to cats.

Sadly, lacking an opposable thumb, it is very hard to get them to start smoking; both matches and lighters are beyond their abilities.

Nil desperandum. Technology offers an answer, in the form of the new BorgCo Cat Vaper. Using components from a standard "electronic cigarette", plus other off-the-shelf devices, all you need to do is to fill it with the cat-food flavoured liquid and charge the battery, then leave it in a place that cats frequent.

When kitty approaches the box, it proceeds to emit a cloud of fine mist with an attractive odour, encouraging said feline to inhale deeply, and sucking a hopefully lethal dose of nicotine into its respiratory tract.

All that's then necessary is to dispose of the mortal remains ...

       But cats are kind of small. Mercury (1kg) is apparently toxic to gerbils.   

       I really wish they wouldn't do those kind of studies.

       "cat-food flavoured"? Why not catnip-flavored?

       Huh? A lot of cats purr in the laps of smokers. Maybe evolution has already defeated you.

       Smoke rises, unfortunately.

       Perhaps BorgCo could bundle this product with the ever- useful "Cat Trebuchet" for the aforementioned kitty mortal remains? Bun [+]
