The “Cooling Aluminium Kitty-Cat Pot” is a simple pet-chilling device that has no moving parts... except your cat. The manufacturer may have hit the jackpot with this cool cat pot as the heat-absorbing dish is a sold-out smash hit!

While cats are descended from desert-dwelling felines and can tolerate heat much better than their human “owners”, that doesn't mean they enjoy hot and humid weather. Given the opportunity, cats will gladly gravitate to places where they can chill out in cold comfort.

Enter the 5,392 yen (US$52.54) Cooling Aluminium Kitty-Cat Pot, if you're a cat that is! The 36cm (14.17 inch) wide and 8cm (3.15 inch) high matte-finished metal dish is perfectly sized for cats and kittens of all types and ages.

According to the manufacturer, Petz Route, the pot has been ergonomically designed to accommodate feline physiques and provide maximum exposure to the dish's inner surfaces.

Once comfortably ensconced, heat from the cat's body is absorbed by the pot's metal and radiated into the surrounding air. The pot feels slightly cool to the touch and the thermodynamic heat transfer process isn't harmful in any way, shape or form.

If you're looking for a gift for your furball, tear your eyes away from that unicorn horn and get him/her something way cooler... IF you can find it in stock somewhere. (via Rocketnews24 and IT Media)
