Cute, isn’t it? The new Ebo robotic cat toy could keep your cat entertained for hours, or at least a few minutes. There’s something in it for you, too. With the Ebo app, you can monitor and record your cats while they play and play along with them via live stream. And if your friends haven’t seen enough cat pictures, the app lets you share on social media.

The toy has collision sensors so it doesn’t crash into things or disappear under the couch while it’s rolling across the floor. Its eyes, movements and sounds mimic live prey.

So we all know Alexa can turn on the lights, read us bedtime stories from Kindle books, accidentally send private messages to friends and order groceries on Amazon. But now the smart speaker has a new trick. If you’re a VCA client, try saying, “Alexa, call the vet.”

VCA and Alexa have teamed up to offer services that used to require a computer, or at least a telephone. Now, if you’re tired of listening to your vet’s on-hold recording, being able to simply say “Alexa, call the vet” could be just what the (cat) doctor ordered.
