Cat Gin

Cotton gin for cats
  [vote for,

If you own a long hair cat keeping then looking like something other than an old mop is a real chore, particularly if the critter doesn't appreciate the attention. What's needed is something like a cotton gin: a pair of rollers with fine wires on them to 'card' the cat hair into some semblance of order. Maybe set the rollers up vertically (like in a car wash) in a tunnel between cat and tasty treats. Result: brushed kitty rewarded by treats, eager to do it again.

       We like muchly ... if, that is, the roller spacing is fully adjustable.

       I may be mistaken, but I think something like this was done with cat doors in the past.

       What, heavy rollers with sharp spikes, set 100mm apart and driven with a 5kVA 3-phase motor ? Wow, who knew, huh ?

       I assumed this was going to be some kind of flavouring.

       Yeah, this is going to need a LOT of ice.

       With a bit more machinery you can have custom socks to keep your feet warm.

       Would that be knitted socks, or kittened socks ? MUHWHAAHAHAHAH ! AHAHAHAHA ! <cough, cough>

       "card" - hook-side velcro, belt-sander style

       With a long enough belt, you could get a fair bit of speed out of one of those...
