PG 11 THE IN THING

Pets (Singapore) - - Contents -

Slip this smart de­vice un­der your kitty's lit­ter box and you'll al­ways be in the know on your furkid's health.

Cats are no­to­ri­ously hard to read—the same can be said of their health as they're masters at hid­ing signs of sick­ness. While this "skill" keeps Puss safe in the wild, it makes it chal­leng­ing for cat paw-rents to de­tect se­ri­ous fe­line health con­di­tions early. The Tailio de­vice is a game changer.

De­signed to be placed be­neath any lit­ter box, Tailio gath­ers data on Puss' weight, his waste, how fre­quently he vis­its his lit­ter box, and his toi­let­ing pat­terns.

The in­for­ma­tion is then passed through an an­a­lyt­ics sys­tem that learns your pet's pro­file, tak­ing note of details such as weight trends and lit­ter box be­hav­ior, and flag­ging any­thing ab­nor­mal—such as a marked de­crease or in­crease in toi­let vis­its—to you via a mo­bile app. The app also al­lows you to set lit­ter box-clean­ing re­minders.

So why look to the lit­ter box for clues on kitty's well-be­ing? Ac­cord­ing to vets, ob­vi­ous changes in a fe­line's weight and elim­i­na­tion are the first tell­tale signs of ill­ness, stress, and life-threatening con­di­tions. The weight-mon­i­tor­ing fea­ture is also an ex­cel­lent tool for own­ers of pudgy furkids.

Have more than one cat? No prob­lem. Tailio can track mul­ti­ple kit­ties— dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing them by their vary­ing elim­i­na­tion pat­terns and weight.

Tailio re­tails at US$249 (S$329) and is avail­able in black and white. Ship­ping charges vary. Find out more at tailio.com.
