Puke catching cat collar

When cat pukes, the collar deploys carpet protection.

Collar contains detector for the unmistakable sound of the cat throwing up, or maybe an accelerometer for the heaving motion. Device in collar shoots-out a sheet of plastic or absorbant material or a barfbag to prevent the puke from hitting the carpet.

I guess it could be used for humans too, or possibly puke-capable robots.

       I am all for less cat vomit but this needs work. I can imagine the cat getting very, very scared of something leaping out from his/her collar whilst trying to vomit thus possibly causing a bigger/more widespread mess.

       I agree, bluerowan. And if the cat is REALLY scared, you will need a bag for the other end of the cat, too.

       Me three... although I am intrigued by this idea.   

       I think this device should be distributed at all bars.
polartomato, Jul 28 2002
  

       This would be a very effective device for bars. Puke-capable robots??

       I like the sound of a cat vomiting. A hand-creme tube squished back an forth sounds like it. I root for the cat when I don't have to clean it up.

       So the cat walks around with a little bag of puke hanging from his neck afterwards?

       You know, this is so bizzarre it just might work!

       Why is [bluerowan] querying puke-capable robots? My hoover already has puke capabilities, which kick in at randomly-assigned intervals...

       Dang, I knew cats were good for something. Puke catchers. I think there should be a brigade of cats wearing these roaming the streets, bred to seek out everyone's vomit whenever it might happen.   

       Brr..rrr..
"Quick! Get the cat!"
Raaaalfff...

       I like the way this idea is headed. Next to using them for traction in snowy weather this is the best cat use yet.

       Hey I like cats!!!   

       They taste like chicken.

       Where would this absorbant material be stored? Inside the collar?

       I say that this device is good, in theory... but if you are going to make a device to counter-act cat vomit, why not make one to fix all house training problems that we run into with our pets. There would be no need to house train any animals! All of our problems would be solved. Oh, and by the way, my grand dad has a fartbot and let me tell you, there is nothing greater than seeing an old man walk through the middle of an office building full of ladies using the fartbot!
