Who wouldn't want a remote control for their pet? Or, perhaps, who would?
I love pet gadgets, especially wacky ones like Bowlingual, which claims to translate barks into human speech.
It's hard to improve on the hit movie and beloved best-selling series "The Hunger Games" -- unless, of course, you replace all the humans with cats. Instead of elaborate special effects, the movie set is "Sweded" (re-created using the cheapest materials possible) into a cardboard masterpiece. Or is that meow-sterpiece?
"The Hunger Games" cat video is part of a bi-weekly series called "Movies As Told By Cats" on The Pet Collective, a site dedicated to pets and the people who love them. The video features the best scenes from "The Hunger Games" -- romance, action, and drama at a purr-fect pace.
"The inspiration came from pictures of cats sticking their heads out of cardboards and someone online decided to draw anime characters on the cardboards," Hai-Lam Phan, senior producer and director, of the series, tells Crave. "I thought it would be funny to build on top of that, and make a story parody out of the frames. Thus, Movies As Told By Cats was born." … Read more
Upon unboxing the Eureka SuctionSeal Pet AS1104A, it is hard to ignore the vacuum cleaner's size, which is enormous. This Eureka is not just statuesque, however, but also thoughtfully designed and a strong performer. At $199.99, the Eureka is a reasonably priced vacuum, especially given its performance and accessories.

This dial offers a variety of choices, ranging from bare floors to high-pile carpet, giving … Read more
I went into vacuum cleaner testing expecting price to directly correlate with performance. I'm not sure why I cling to this assumption when other tests have proven otherwise time and time again. The Bissell PowerGlide Deluxe Pet Vacuum proved to be a contender alongside the $399-plus models we tested, even though it boasts a sticker price of $179.99.
Originally, I expected the Dyson vacuums to outperform the pack by large swaths. I have since come to see Dyson vacuums as status symbols more than anything. They perform well, certainly, but they cost an arm and a leg and … Read more
If you type Pets.com into your browser today, you get redirected to a site for the retailer Pet Smart. But, 15 years ago, you would've been visiting one of the most popular Web sites to hit the Internet.
Pets.com is a case example of the classic dot bomb story. In its two short years, it went from tiny startup in August 1998 to a publicly traded company in February 2000 to collapsed in November 2000.
It can happen to anyone -- just one glance in the other direction and you've lost your child. Well, there's a fix for that: wire them with a GPS locator.
A Swedish-based startup called Wonder Technology Solutions announced Tuesday the release of its "Trax GPS Tracker for Children and Pets," which the company touts as being able to let users "locate their children and pets at any time and from anywhere."
Humans have long used technology to stay in touch with one other. It's only natural to harness tech to stay in touch with our four-legged loved ones, as well.

What does your pet get up to while you're at work? Chewing on the furniture? Knocking over the plants? Or maybe just...nothing?
Boredom is probably as boring for pets as it is for humans. But now you can entertain your furry friends with laser beams when you're away -- while keeping watch over them.
