Okay, I get it.  A cute little kitten dancing across my keyboard (or other appropriate flat space.)  I’m a sucker for augmented pets.  I want one.

But why just a cat?

Come on, folks.  Can’t we dig a little deeper into the black sticky vat of emotions?

Why can’t we have a pet Banker to poke and kick and make it beg for money before we flick it off the desk into the trashcan?  Or a little Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to march around the table and then catapult into oblivion from our spoons?

Why must we tickle my cute reflex?  I have darker, baser needs that must be sated.

Until then, I’ll have an iKat. (meow)
