The Cat's Me-OW

A lot of cat and dog products tend to get marketed based on very basic stereotypes:

1. Cats are mean and/or aloof.

2. Dogs are happy and playful.

Now, I have encountered friendly, social cats and mean, scary dogs, but I have yet to see this in real life.

If you're interested, this cat-gets-it-up-the-you-know-what is available in black or white, but, for some strange reason, the choice is not up to you, but the communists at Taylor Gifts.

Cat pencil sharpener meows while it works! A great home or office addition for feline fanatics, combining fun with function. Hones graphite faster than a cat sharpening its claws on a scratching post. Requires one watch battery (included). Available in white or black, please let us choose. Plastic, 4 3/4 x 1 3/4 x 5 3/4". $19.98

Thanks to Jessica, of The Blog of a Gamer Girlfriend for the tip.

No problemo. Seeing that product never gets old. I'd almost be tempted to drop the dough for it out of sheer morbid curiosity.

I bought this as a gift for my mother, who likes cats a bit too much. we both thought it was hilarious, especially when you put the pencil in and the cat makes a terribly funny but lamenting meeeooow
