Catterbox Translates your Cat’s Meows

Catterbox the translating cat collar is definitely our product OTD

What if your cat could actually talk? Presenting Catterbox, an amazing cat collar innovation that translates the meows and sounds of your beloved feline into clear English words and sentences. The designers of the Catterbox have analysed hundreds of sound samples produced by cats to help the collar translate as accurately as possible for it seems cats do not ‘meow’ amongst each other, but only to communicate with humans. Hmmm slightly sceptical here but hey, whatever blows your hair back – if you’re the type who wants your cat to start ranting day and night, then this is definitely for you. Happy Friday, everyone! 🙂
