Cat's Ceiling Cradle

Allow your cat to roam across the ceiling.
  [vote for,

This was thought of by my flatmate (condominium co-resident) who was inspired by my having taught my cat to hunt and eat spiders in the bath.

The idea is to have cradle on the ceiling that allows an athletic quadroped (presumably a cat) to scuttle across the roof upside down and get to the source royal of most household spiders. The cradle would require a frame to be placed on the ceiling to allow two pairs of parallel wires to support the cat as it scuttles, presumably assisted by a computer system that detects, and responds to, movement.

Could also be used to get your pet to help you put Christmas decorations in the winter.

       Can the cat still crouch?

       I think you would need to keep a tension between the cat and the ceiling so crouching should be possible - the computerisied system would increase the tension on the wires making the cradle more snug during a crouch.

       Feline wire-fu - I love it! Have a sharpened throwing croissant to aid the beast in its hunting.

       Ari, this gives me the creeps! +1 though for getting rid of pests...

       Does it work with mice ?

       For mice you could leave trays of sticky sugary substances around so they can coat their feet and invert the horizontal alongside the cats ...

       Get wall to wall + ceiling carpet and them cats can get just about anything that moves.   

       Or line the ceiling with velcro and make the cat use velcro booties.
