Fish in Style
Forget the plastic castles, colored gravel, and fake plants. With the elegant Glasscape, made in Turkey from handblown glass, you can even forget the fish if you like. The mountainous terrain is built into the bottom of the bowl, which won a 2011 International Design Excellence Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America. The bowl holds 2.5 gallons of water and is best used as a temporary habitat for goldfish, bettas, or other small fish. And it serves as a beautiful centerpiece when Nemo’s not home. $140 aruliden.com
Dogs, cats, fish — they all brighten our homes and our lives. So be good to them.
Yes, really. There are iPhone and iPad apps designed just for your kitty. Friskies’ Games for Cats (why didn’t they call these iPaws?) offers downloadable games that will capture your feline’s attention (just check out the videos on the website). Let your kitty choose from darting fish, jumping spiders, bouncing dots, and even virtual mice. Is it really safe to let cats claw the glass screen on your expensive electronics? Purina Friskies says yes. Besides, your kitty will probably use more paw than claw. Free gamesforcats.com
I wasn’t lost. I was squirrel hunting. It just took a little longer than expected.
GPS technology helps us find lost packages, misplaced cell phones, and even out-pastcurfew kids. So why not a tracking device for your four-legged friend? Tagg — The Pet Tracker uses wireless technology to pinpoint your pet’s location on your computer or mobile device. You’ll get a text or email alert when Fido roams from any area you designate as “home.” The rechargeable battery lasts about 30 days, and the tracker is water resistant. It works for cats, too, so you can track Tabby. $100 (includes one month of free service); $7.95 per additional month. pettracker.com
