Lights, Camera…Poo?

From our “You gotta’ see it to believe it” file – a company has come out with a kitty litter box equipped with a camera and other sensors that they say uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to see if your cat is sick. According to Lulu Pet, their “smart” litter box will “check for symptoms of the top seven common cat illnesses with 95% accuracy.” There is even an app that goes with the hi-tech litter box, that will send you an alert if a poo doesn’t look quite right. The sensors will analyze your cat’s urine and compare it to a sample range of healthy cats to detect everything from kidney failure to hyperthyroidism. Please note, despite the potential for AI, a real-life vet is always your best bet to determine your cat’s health.
