Things I Want, Things Nobody Needs.

I found another amazing product that promises to reduce the amount of work I have to do, and another not-so amazing product that nobody really needs. But first, something for Meow from Australia! This is a Virginia Possum - common all over North America.

Ugly bugger huh? Not like the much cuter Auzzie version of the possum. The American possum has a rat like tail, similar coloring to a rat, and a rat like face. Many people mistakenly think the possum IS a rat - which is just wrong. The Virginia Possum is a marsupial - the only one known to live in North America. It has 50 nasty looking teeth and likes to show them off when scared - but the possum is harmless. They never attack anything, except bugs. The teeth display is all for show. But still, they are ugly bastards. I have one that lives somewhere near me. I see it all the time. If you live in the States and you see a possum in your yard, the best thing to do is ignore it. They are as harmless as they are ugly. All that drooling and glaring of teeth is for show.

Now onto the awesome labor saving product! This is possibly the greatest invention ever.

This is the Cat Genie. You hook it up to a water source, and plug it into an electrical outlet. Yes, this thing is super high tech! You can set it to run automatically up to 4 times a day, or operate it manually with the touch of a button. Click HERE to see it in action!

The box does not use conventional litter. It requires a special washable litter. When activated, a scoop is deployed and the bowl rotates. The scoop collects all solid waste. The scoop then deposits the waste into a hopper. The hopper fills with water and sanitizing solution. The solid waste liquefied much like a banana in a blender. Then the nastiness is pumped out and deposited into the toilet (the contraption has to be installed by a toilet or a washing machine).

Liquid waste simply drains through the washable litter and into a pan containing sanitizing solution. When the contraption "flushes" the pee pan is flushed as well.

After this, the bowl part fills with water and sanitizing solution. The scoop arm lowers, and sifts the litter. The sifting action cleans the bowl, and the sanitizing solution cleans the litter. The washing water is drained into the pee pan and poop hopper - where it is flushed out. Then warm air dries the litter beads.

Cool huh? The device has a high up front cost ($300), but due to various reasons it could be worth twice as much. Or more.

Now onto this thing I found while walking around in Target.

This is a bottle cooler / warmer. The photo is crappy because my phone/camera sucks as a phone and makes for an even worse camera - but the picture on the box is a bottle of white wine. The bottle cooler / warmer can cool a bottle of wine to a decent temperature for white wine, or warm it to well over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Why would one want to warm a bottle of wine? For rice wine of course! Some kinds of sake is served warm. I love that stuff! It is said that the proper temperature for warm sake is around 105 degrees.

But what really got my attention was the writing inside the wine glass you can see in the photo above.

Did you catch that? Great for use in your CAR?!?!?! Oh yea, just the other day I was driving in my car and thought to myself that it would be a great idea to have a chilled glass of white wine! But where could I get that? I was driving after all. What I needed was this bottle cooler! That way I can booze and cruise in style! You do not expect me to drink warm white wine while on the road now do you? YUCK! How barbaric!

Another thing, a car cigarette lighter plug is included with the bottle cooler / warmer. How is that for corporate responsibility?

And I also like how the box says this product is great for the office. Why at my last job the whole staff would just sit around, drinking chilled white wine and eating fine cheese all day! We needed three or four of these coolers - one for warm sake and a few to chill white wines. That way we could have a few unopened bottles chilling while drinking from the remaining bottle.

So if you WANT to get tagged for DUI and you WANT to loose your job - this may be the device for you! Just follow the handy suggestions ON THE PRODUCT BOX!

Someone in marketing needs to be fired. I think they were hitting the bottle on the clock. And in the parking lot. And who knows where else.

There has to be a better way than constantly scooping and cleaning! I have better things to do with my time than cleaning up cat poop.

I have a bottle warmer for me car. But the only one that imbibes is the 7 month old.

Blogger Sar said...

See, you are hung up with scooping poop this week! ;)

That is quite a marketing faux paux. But it makes for a fun snark.

Someone needs to be slapped, for sure.

The litter box contraption is cool, I agree.Looks like one of the expensive products you see in the Sky Mall magazines for people who are hard to impress.
