Seen some wild and crazy things that cat does, not girl, real cat, like playing with a balloon and scared itself when it bursts, sliding down the hand rail of a stairway and lands into a box, and more loads of fun….
Who says pets can’t benefit from technology? The days of having to put your dog or cat to sleep because they are no longer in great shape are over. Now herniated discs, amputations, and paralysis mean nothing, because you can order a set of custom “wheels” for your pet that will get them going again in no time! Manufactures have made sure to build them waterproof, land-proof, and play proof, because what is the point of giving your disabled pet back their mobility if they can’t fully utilize it?
And those people out there who are in to more exotic pets don’t have to fret about what will happen to their injured tortoises, turtles, or lizards. Pet wheels have been proven to work for reptiles as well. Writer Jim Lee built a set of custom wheels for an injured Box Turtle that allowed her to run around his house and even go outside.
Check out these wheels for a paralyzed turtle!
What do you do if you want a pet to play with but don’t have the time or space to keep one of your own? Well if you happen to live in (or are visiting) Tokyo, Japan, you can head over to the Nekobukuro and rent one. For 600 yen (or about $5.84) you can play in a cat-centric wonderland where felines let you pet them, play with them, and snap pictures of them as they lounge about.
In 2004, South Korean scientist Hwang Woo Suk was honoured by Time Magazine in the annual list of People who Mattered, in recognition of his work to clone a human being. According to Time Magazine, “Hwang has already proved that human cloning is no longer science fiction, but a fact of life”. Well as it turned out in 2006, Hwang’s work was fabricated and he now stands-trial on charges of fraud and embezzlement.
Recovering from this setback, South Korean scientists are now at it again, this time cloning cats by manipulating a fluorescent protein gene.
However as a side-effect, the cloned cats glow in the dark when exposed to ultraviolet beams… Remember going to Disco and pulling out your credit card under the pink lights?
