Cat Owners Can Lick Their Cats Using This Perfect Invention

New, 2 comments

Finally, the one thing we've all been waiting for

Look, the fact of the matter is, all the really good stuff has already been invented. We've got the lightbulb. We've got the fitted sheet. We've got it all. It's all taken. And as of today it's really all taken, because the last great invention has been invented and put up on Kickstarter. That's right—someone has finally made a device that allows you to lick your cat. And LICKI ($6,470 of the way to its $36,500 goal) makes a surprisingly compelling case for its own existence:

Cats groom each other as a form of social bonding. There's also evidence to suggest that cats view and treat their human captors as large cats. As a human, you're left out of the intimate licking ritual. At best, you have a one-sided licking relationship with your cat.

Sure! We'll buy that explanation. It also makes an even more compelling, and more concise, case a little further up:

Have you ever wanted to lick your cat? Now you can.

LICKI's tagline is "Lick Your Cat."
