International Day of Kitty Twitty


Congrats to Maker Shed Product Development Sensei Marc de Vinck (and his adorable cat) for the great coverage of his Kitty Twitty twittering cat toy in the UK’s Daily Mail. The project also showed up on Canadian Living’s pet blog.

I was actually surprised that Kitty Twitty didn’t get more ink and electrons when it was first published in MAKE (Volume 22). Seems like perfect media fodder. Marc’s cat may have done a poor job of self-promotion. Maybe a press release should be emailed every x-number of toy triggers. Maybe now is its moment. Go, kitty, go!

The Daily Mail piece mentioned the project being online, but didn’t link to it. Here it is on Make: Projects:
