Kitty Bidet

For that all important freshness.
  [vote for,

How often has this happened: Tabby leaves a deposit in the litterbox, and then jumps purring onto your lap, your pillow, or the dining room table during a dinner party, and it's all too apparent where she's just been.

With Kitty Bidet these unsanitary little social faux paws are gone forever. An add-on to the automatically combing litter pans, Kitty Bidet detects tiny plopping sounds, secures the cat by scruff and the lower abdomen, squirts a blast of warm, scented water, cleans the area with a terrycloth wipe (available in rewashable or disposable) for that just-like-mommy-cat's-tongue soothing freshness, and blows a puff of warm air to dry. Viola!

Kitty Bidet is an boon to owners of long-haired breeds, or cats simply to fat to reach "back there". Embarassing tiny skid marks are a thing of the past, with Kitty Bidet!

Available in Ocean Breez and Cat Mint.

I don't speak or read Japanese, but maybe this could be a kitty bidet after a bit'o mod'ing... [Cedar Park, Oct 04 2004]

Hate to admit that I’ve tried this, but it does work (no dining room required). [Shz, Oct 04 2004]


       Maybe carwash technology is applicable here. The cats could get their directed blast of water and then pass over a rising roller to exit the (enclosed) litter box.

       I shouldn't really be telling you this but if you buy one of these gadgets, we - I mean, they will crap under your bed or in your wardrobe. Believe me, no joke.

       Oh where is 8th of 7 when we need him?
krelnik, Jan 07 2003

       I think he's building one as we speak, together with a few minor adjustments. eg. sandpaper instead of terrycloth, flamethrower instead of puff of warm air.

       Battery acid instead of warm water...   

       I fear this invention (in it's original form, not 8th's hypothetical version) would only work once. IOW what [everyone] said

       // Oh where is 8th of 7 when we need him? //   

       Watching from the bushes through night-vision goggles, until everyone is asleep and I can replace the "blast of warm, scented water" nozzle with a length of wide bore steel pipe and a 50 Bar compressed air suppy ......   

       You'll believe a cat can fly ........   

       // However, why do you keep the litter tray in the dining room in the first place? //   

       [Jawa], all cat owners/lovers are like that. Strange, sick and twisted like you wouldn't believe. It's a dark place you don't want to go, believe me.

       Hey, [Jawa], check out my "Cat Ejector Pack" idea........

       I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you .........   

       I've been celebrating Christmas, Saturnalia, Imbolc, Yule, and a few other midwinter festivals. At least I think I have; memories seem to be soluble in ethanol.

       Rich people can get their dogs trained to wipe their butt on the grass after they've crapped on the (poor persons) grass.   

       The dogs sit down, lift their back legs and drag themselves along on their ass with their front legs.   

       Suprisingly ammusing.

       Just in my defense: I do not now have, nor in the past had, a litter pan in the dining room. Ug. But, sociable cats I've had have been known to rush back from the box to be the life of the party, the little "dears".   

       Oh, well, I confess my thoughts were mostly on revenge: revenge on the adorable sphere-o-cat, for me having to wash her little behind all the time. The thought of the indignity of a blast of warm, perfumy water onto her little hiney would almost be worth, as so many have pointed out, the obvious result that she'd take to hiding "it" somewhere less pleasant.   

       (I dunno, though: she's not very bright.)(And I love the little beasts.)(Although I am a bit cheesed at finding another dead neighborhood hen--or rather, parts--in the back yard...anyone have a nasty infestation of chickens at their place and need a couple of cats to clean it out?)   

       Cats sled too, but usually only if they have worms, and if it's on the carpet it's annoying.
