Cats and the internet: They go together like peanut butter and jelly. But until now, we could only enjoy online cats in the most passive of ways. No more! Thanks to the iPet Companion, you can control robotic cat toys at humane shelters around the country with the click of a computerized mouse! You can even move the camera around. It's really fun!

Until you remember that these cute little kitties are trapped in some lonely humane shelter, with no real human contact. Just robot cat toys, and someone like you, unseen and far away, who'll probably get bored of them in a few minutes and move on to the next link you see on Facebook.

Oh, but whatever. Go play with the kitties. [, Photo via]
