Pavlov's Cat Scratch Feeder is an interactive cat food dispenser whose name evokes a classic rock hit by provocative right-wing musician Ted Nugent.
Can your sharp-clawed kitty shred a scratching post faster than the Motor City Madman can shred a rockin' riff? You don't have to take a journey to the center of the mind (of a feline) to find out, thanks to this intriguingly-named interactive cat accessory from Good Pet Stuff.
Pavlov's Cat Scratch Feeder Interactive Treat and Food Dispenser, to use it's official moniker, would also likely annoy the eponymous early twentieth century Russian animal behaviorist if he were around to notice it. Just the fact that this product is aimed at cats instead dogs is, in and of itself, enough to get more than a few lawyers salivating.
But we digress... the Cat Scratch Feeder makes no claims nor seeks any endorsements. It is what it is: a cat food and/or treat dispenser, activated by your tiny taloned tiger, that needs no musical accompaniment. Owners are still free to play their own choice of music in the background... and we all know what musical selection you'll choose, hmm?
The combination feeder & scratching post stands 20 inches tall and features a cats paw-shaped base that can be filled with sand or cat litter to provide extra stability. Fill the inner dispenser compartment with up to 4.5 cups of dry food or treats and let kitty do the rest!
Pavlov's Cat Scratch Feeder Interactive Treat and Food Dispenser is listed at Amazon but with the advisory “Currently unavailable - We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.” There's also no mention of the device at Rocklin, CA-based Good Pet Stuff's website. Did Da Nuge's legal beagles win this round? (images via dcwriterdawn and Matthew Hutchinson)
