Wouldn’t it be cool to be a cat? You’d be able to act like the world’s biggest arsehole without any sort of punishment. Knocking lamps off tables, pissing in shoes and scratching the shit out of just about anyone. Great, great, double-great.
But fur maintenance? That’s not on my things-to-do-if-I-was-a-cat-for-a-day list, but the Licki Brush suggests it may be at the top of other people’s.
It’s a fake tongue with a rough, scratchy texture that you can use to groom the grumpy little felines in your life, without getting furballs in your mouth/lungs/stomach. The guy in the promotional video sort of looks like he’s stroking his kitty with a giant, flattened, cream-filled meowth (did you like that one?) condom, which we hope is exactly the look the maniacs behind Licki Brush were going for.
Though you won't get to actually taste the shit your cat's been rolling around in, your nose will get a good sense of what it's been getting up to and your neck will get a mean workout. Unfortunately there's no guarantee that your cat will actually appreciate your handiwork.
There’s no word on how much the Licki Brush will cost if it ever goes into production, but a Kickstarter is coming soon. That'll obviously be followed by multiple theme café openings, and before you know it, cat-licking will be considered a more acceptable public act than breast-feeding. [Metro]
