"Scrabbling kitten" toilet brush

What fun..

Novelty toilet brushes are Baked but this goes a bit further.

It looks like a kitten (choose from tabby, totroiseshell, ginger, grey, black or Siamese) gaffer-taped to the end of a stick.

The stick is actually moulded plastic and contains 4 AA cells, a motor, and a small sound system.

When immersed in water, the motor is activated and the kitten's limbs flail frantically, scraping at the smooth ceramic of the toilet bowl, and the speaker emits a frantic yowling. In the DeLuxe version, the eyes also swivel and the mouth opens and closes; when fully immersed, a stream of bubbles rises.

If left submerged, the movements weaken and eventually stop.

Suitable for amoral sociopathic sadists of all ages.

       Oh yes. [+] for the fun!

       Will this device have some cost benefit or other advantage when compared to a real kitten?
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 02 2019

       Yes; it's multi-use, and the "fur" is stiff bristle, which doesn't become bedraggled and ineffective on wetting.   

       Also, the adhesive on gaffer tape can be affected by the water, resulting in a real kitten becoming detached and blocking the U-bend; on our version, the tape is purely cosmetic.   

       We will concede that the "scrabbling" action is not as vigorous in the artificial version, but the yowling is very convincing as it was a live* recording.

       Awwww, shucks, you do say the nicest things sometimes ...   

       // You must be brothers. //   

       So far, [Frankx] hasn't taken up our very generous offer of Assimilation, which is strange as he seems ideally suited ...   


       *Up to the moment the bubbles stopped; after that, not so much.

       I can envisage a larger version of this in the form of a septic tank (containing many thousands of gallons of liquidised cat poo) with you in it. An invited audience equipped with long poles and breathing apparatus would ensure that you were beaten back from ever ascending the enamelled sides, though you might get close. The large rubber sucker on the end of each pole would also be used to periodically push you under the festering surface of the bubbling slurry. Our only concern is that you would probably enjoy all of this, apart from ingesting the cat slurry.

       Is the HB a skeptic tank?
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 03 2019

       Skeptic Tank ... a Think Tank staffed by the disbelieving, distrustful and mildly paranoid. Nice !

       //Skeptic Tank//   

       Something the product of all ordinary think tanks should be passed through before delivery to the consumer & the public at large.   

       A stage far too often neglected, hence the raw sewage (or pure shit to the less polite) that so often issues from many think tanks.

       Nice analogy there, [Skewed]. Very apposite.

       //HB a skeptic tank?//   

       //product of all ordinary think tanks should be passed through before delivery//   

       Will there be pay? Or at least compensation in the form of systematic ridicule?
