Kitty Cat Washing Machine

If you’re tired of fighting your pet during baths, there’s now a solution: the fully automatic Pet Spa. This funny contraption appears to be a cross between a washing machine and a dishwasher – just put your pet inside, add some money, and Voila! Your pet is all clean.

I cracked up at this video of the Pet Spa in action, particularly with the fitting music (you may need to double click the video until the video owner enables embedding):

Wait! Don’t call PETA yet! Some animals actually like the Pet Spa … or at least tolerate it a little better:

Has anyone seen one of these in person? I’d love to put a couple stuffed animals in one to see what happens (and videotape the reaction of the pet store owner). I wonder if there are any on the East coast?

    Yeah… I think that’s a pretty easy way to traumatize your little friends. Imagine being trapped in something that scares you to death and not able to get out while your “friends” watched and laughed. Not so funny… :(

    I feel sorry for Erica who evidentally owns a pussy that is too retentive for the marvels of this wonderful contraption.

    I would think that the cat would get really pissed and retaliate on it’s owner during the nite!

    Congrats on the nod for a Bloggie…

    You got my vote!

    Uh, few cats left here in South China…

    You mean the media is only getting to this NOW?
    I’ve been seeing local cable TV commercials for this for over a year for a local pet shop that’s schlepping their ‘Pet Spa’ service for your houshold pet cat or dog
    it accomodates large and small pets (altho I didn’t see it for birds or horses). Nothing new here.

    I wash my cat, with very low trauma simply by getting a warm saturated wash cloth and going over her body with motions that simulate licking. She’s a solid white cat, so I have to do this often she absolutely loves it.

    I can not imagine sticking her in this contraption. Probably feels like being digested to them.

    I would however stick my dog into this machine. Dogs will just stand there and accept the inevitable. Then realize that it wasn’t so bad.

    That’s an absolutely awful thing to do to a cat.

    However, I think my yellow lab would enjoy it immensely. 😛

    I, in turn, feel sorry for Rev. Qelqoth who probably does not have any pets. If he (she?) does, they probably don’t treat them too well if they think this is a “wonderful” idea.

    my local pet supply store has one of these and the dogs always look so sad and defeated sitting inside.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Then again, I hate cats. 😀

    Oh my goodness. I laughed so hard. I think it very well could traumatize my cat. I personally wouldn’t do that to my Mikan. But as sorry as I felt for the poor kitten, I couldn’t stop laughing.

    People that laugh at a terrified pet should not have children. Of course, the offenders are the ones with 6 kids with wet diapers and runny noses trying to find a toy amidst the Pabst cans.

    Or maybe said offender is just evil.

    No, wait, this is in keeping with a latent serial killer.

    But I digress.

    Don’t bother raising your angry little fist at me. I’m bored.

    mean (but of course that is to be expected from manly men). then again, maybe it deals with a natural righteous urge that, being nurtured, leads to great deeds of manliness, as viewed in Konzentrationslager Auschwitz and others (for more on this subject refer to HITLER, A.: Mein Kampf).

    (now that was meaness at its best. HAHAHAHA)

    Tormenting an animal is evil. The people who do it are deranged sociopaths.

    Sane people who tolerate, minimize, laugh about, or just silently turn away from it, are truly evil. They know better but choose to delude themselves.

    Hahaha you people who think giving your pet a BATH is torment just cause its a little scared of something that is not only HARMLESS but USEFUL are the nut jobs.

    Then again, I don’t like cats either, they’re disgusting and annoying.

    What is the name of the company that invented this pet spa and where are they located?

    Yup, that pet spa thing is still fricking hilarious.

    Wow, you people are entertaining. Thanks!
    I’m a pet owner and find no reason whatsoever to bathe something that automatically cleans itself. Additionally, I laughed my ass off at the video and if I had to contribute my opinion in this argumentative blog, it would be this: stop slinging powerful words like “demented” and “sociopathic” to something a so-called tormented cat will overcome as soon as it’s fur is dry. You self-proclaimed pet activists and lovers expose animals to unpleasant procedures such as de-clawing and neutering in the name of goodness. Go after pyromaniacs with pets instead.
