Aby-a-Day – January 31: “Cube” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Cube.”

I got in on the Petcube Kickstarter back in September 2013, and it arrived just before the holidays. The original delivery date was supposed to have been May, but I liked getting it as a Christmas gift.

It’s a pretty nifty little toy. I can see the cats from anywhere, and I can talk to them and play the red dot game with them using a built-in laser pointer.

Jake may be too smart for it, though…he’s more interested in looking for me inside the Petcube than he is in playing with the laser.

I also tried it in the art room. You can see me in this shot, testing it out. This was the cube on the windowsill.

I moved it to the bookshelf, since that gave a better view of the room.

You can also capture any naughtiness happening while you’re away. Jake, stop biting my laptop cable!

Okay, now you’re too close! (You can see the laser pointer dot on his neck, though.)

This is one afternoon at work. Jake’s napping on the big cat bed.

Or was he just waiting for me to talk to him through the cube again?

Tessie is the only one who isn’t intrigued by the Petcube. I managed to capture Angel on it. She looked at the laser for about two seconds, and then jumped up to sit on the nce warm cable box, just out of camera range.

Kylie also thinks it’s very interesting.

Especially the laser pointer!
