PetChatz (With a Z): The 'Talk To Your Pet While You're Away' Webcam System
This is the PetChatz pet communication system. It allows you to webcam with your dogs and cats while you're away from home. Me? I just call my house line, wait for the answering machine to pick up, then yell, "DADDY'S NEVER COMING HOME BECAUSE YOU WERE ALL BAD!" The PetChatz communication system can also dispense treats, in case you've ever wanted to come home to a PetChatz torn of the wall and chewed open. The system retails for $350, which seems a little expensive for something no pet I've ever had would pay attention to. I could Skype my dog with a handful of bacon screaming, "TREAT, TREAT, WHO WANT'S A TREAT?!" and I'd have to sit there watching her lick herself until she got bored and decided to get into the kitchen trash.
Keep going for several more pictures (including a cat who loves the system so much it's rubbing itself on it) and a video demo.
Thanks to lebeeps, who agrees the best pet communication device is never ever leaving the house.
