Big Brother is Watching...My Cats
Bev S. 20.7.08
I have been a little preoccupied lately because my cat is ill. She was looking skinnier than usual so I took her to the vet to be weighed. It turns out she has "fatty liver syndrome" from not eating enough. She has always been finicky and apparently for the past two months she has preferred to almost starve herself than eat dry food during the day. My vet refers to her as a "capricious eater" because she frequently flip flops in her food preferences and drives me crazy in the process. Fortunately her liver condition is reversible, but requires me to more closely monitor her eating. Thanks to the Panasonic wireless Pet Cam I can do this remotely. This amazing device connects to my DSL router and e-mails me images such as the one above whenever my cats trigger the motion sensor. My reputation as a crazy cat lady has been solidified.
