It's not just for cats - I use this device to entertain and cuddle with my 2-year old son! He loves it and it saves me from having to spend time with him... now I'm free to really concentrate on the important things in life - like watching football and drinking beer!

I've been a happy Reemco customer for years, ever since I bought their Sidewinder to edge my lawn. I've been trying to order one of their Fountains of Couth for almost a year, though ... I'm not sure they are taking online orders anymore.

PS: Don't you dare give Chickenhead credit for the work of others. Reemco used to have their offices in downtown Orlando (their logo and slogan "Faster than the Future!" visible on Colonial Blvd. just shy of Orange Ave. for a number of years) in the same building as cheesy cult called the Lovians.

Funny site. I wonder if it's a functioning robot, or purely a prop. I'd want padded fingers for safer function, I think. But the cats could destroy this thing with one mangle of frenzy. So perhaps these are really designed for defense. Better they should have a model with retractable claws, yeah that's it. Real cat-like, can be nice or mean at the flip of a switch, your good faithful guard-tiger, or big ol' friendly pal. Hmmm, is there a market for this? What are the liabilities? I'm sure they are already common in Japan. Can't wait for the infomercial. The hi-tech auto pilot made me laugh. Though they should make unisex models with cell-phone Velcro, snack bag clips and cup holders.

I love this line from the Valve Cap Removers site:

Step five: Dispose of Valve Remover while Finger IS STILL ERECT. Remove it IMMEDIATELY after taking off Valve Caps. Dispose of safely and never, NEVER use Valve Cap Removers more than once.
