'High voltage' pet brush zaps fleas, but hopefully not Fido

A battery-operated pet brush out of China promises to remove shedding hair, as well as kill fleas and "other living things attached to the pet."

Call me overly protective, but were I to own a pet, I'd probably try to keep it far away from gadgets that advertise themselves as "high voltage."

Yet the High Voltage Pet Brush out of China makes no bones (bones, get it?!) about using that somewhat offputting phrase in the title. The battery-operated gizmo promises, using "high voltage supplied by low voltage," to remove shedding hair, as well as kill fleas and "other living things attached to the pet." Hopefully, that does not include affectionate owners.

As Crave reader Jeremy pointed out when he alerted us to this odd contraption, it could prove useful in charging your Sega robo-cat . You might want to do a bit more research, however, before letting it near the non-robo variety.
