Pet Washing Machine Coming to a Pet Store Near You: Video
Pet owners know that keeping their critters clean can be a real drag. While some dogs love water, even they seem to hate bath time, and trying to bathe a cat ... well ... let's just say that's a really bad idea. Getting someone else to do the washing for you makes the whole process a lot easier, but paying upwards of $50 for your average dog bath gets expensive. Enter the Pet Spa, an automated washing machine for pets that promises to do the same thing for just $15.
That is, of course, assuming you don't mind completely traumatizing Fluffy or Scruffy while watching as they writhe in misery.
The device looks something like an over-sized microwave, with a large opening through which you insert your pet. Once the door is shut (and presumably locked) you pay your money, punch in a few options (anti-flea spray? deodorant? under-body anti-rust coating?), and then stand back and watch as your pet throws a fit of epic proportions while jets of high-pressure suds whisk away all that nastiness, before driers blow them clean.
The machines are available for purchase at $30,000, but at that price they're obviously intended for installation in major pet stores. Given the impression of fear these boxes are likely to strike into the hearts of special cuddly ones, we suggest trying one of these out in a store you don't ever plan on entering again.
Now, are you actually going to try this? And, if not, tell us why, 'cause we think it looks kinda cool/convenient.
