When you get to be soul-crushingly lonely, the idea of having a pet always comes to mind. Of course, then the questions of whether or not you’ll be able to keep up with maintaining a good quality of life for your pet and keep your sanity will begin to surface. If you want to go the hands-off approach with an animal that won’t put fur everywhere or chirp loudly at all hours, a fish may be the way to go.
Having a pet can be a therapeutic experience – it not only helps you melt the day’s stress away, it will also be able to ensure that you do not end up too lonely at the end of the day. Having said that, having a pet would also mean added responsibilities, and some folks would go all out – as in, even getting their pets their own room, or even their own air conditioner. Well, pet lovers also have another issue to think about when they want to jet off for a holiday – who will take care of their babies? Petzila has an idea if you need to be away for maybe a day or two, as it has just launched the PetziConnect Treat Cam.
If you’ve ever set down a food dish with a dog in the house, you know that they’ll come tearing into the room and be done eating in less than a minute. This can lead to an upset stomach, or like a toddler with too many cheerios, choking. If you wish your pooch would slow down, but don’t want to be forced to wait on them to eat tiny portions before refilling their dish, then getting a bowl that makes them work a bit more for their food might be in order.
Pets are wonderful creatures to have around, especially when they bring some much needed joy and peace at the end of the work day. There is nothing quite like returning home to find Fido wagging its tail vigorously, as though your arrival back home is the only thing on its mind (and chances are, it is!). Well, while many of us would love to be able to bring about our pets with us wherever we go, even on long haul holidays, that is simply not possible unless you’re a super rich mogul with the means to do so. Leaving them alone at home without anyone else around is also not an option, as there is poop to clean and of course, feeding times to worry about. Enter this Kickstarter project that is known as Nibbles, a smart pet feeder with an integrated camera which allows you to feed and watch your pet from your smartphone, from anywhere at anytime!
I sure know a lot of folks who consider themselves “dog people” and there truly is something to be said about the unconditional love of a pet… coming home at the end of a long day and being greeted enthusiastically by your furry friend. But what’s your buddy doing all day while you’re gone? Have you set him up to be entertained while you’re away?
We hate leaving our pets alone for such a long stretch during the work day. Unless you can find a way to work from home, this will always be the case. They’re going to be happy every time you come through the door of course, but what do you do if you want to let your dog or cat know you’re thinking of them?
