My page-a-day calendar mentioned this invention, and I had to share.
It’s a washing machine for pets.
Here’s a page (with images) on the company’s website.
One groomer’s website suggests (with pic) that kids can join in, too. He seems like he couldn’t be happier.
One of the inventors of the Lavakan (Spanish for, roughly, “dog washer”), mentioned that cats aren’t quite as keen on the idea as their canine counterparts. “But it’s better than having a cat attach itself to your face, which is what can happen when you try to wash one by hand,” Andres Diaz said.
Umm… don’t cats kind of handle that themselves? We had a cat when I was a little boy, and I don’t remember anyone bathing him. Whatever the case, a cat in a Lavakan must be one heck of a show.
