CLAW-some! You can now play with your cat via Skype using a remote-controlled toy - but watch out, it can still 'scratch' you

It might seem one of the less enjoyable elements of playing with your cat - the inevitable feline jab to the hand with its claws out.
But Japanese inventors have created a device that lets pet owners remotely play with their cat via Skype, complete with a 'scratch' function which allows the user to be hurt by their playful friend.
The system is called Itaneko and it includes a cat toy that the owner can control remotely using their laptop trackpad or computer mouse and a glove they can wear to experience the 'scratches.'But rather than give all the joy of this exchange to just the cat, the system also transmits the clawed pain to the human when the cat catches the cat-toy.
The device was invented by experts from Ochanomizu University.
Rotating metal wires connected to a miniature motor generate tiny scratches to the back of the user's hand, when the cat hits the fluffy toy.
The user must wear a glove which is mounted on top of the computer mouse in order to experience the scratch sensation.
15300Millions of besotted cat owners are so keen to stay in touch with their pets that they use their mobile phone or computer to call home and ‘speak’ to them.
One in three use video messaging service Skype to see and give them attention, a recent poll of 1,000 owners claims.
Almost a quarter of male owners admit they’ll even call home just to hear their feline friend purring - more than the number of women who do.
Ignoring the fact that cats only offer affection on their terms, half of British owners say they’d rather spend time with one than with a human.
When owners and pets do spend quality time together it’s clear what they get up to. For 37 per cent of men say they have taught their cat to perform tricks, the poll for card retailer Hallmark shows.
So it’s no surprise that 29 per cent of women say their cat is a fully-fledged member of the family.
The poll found a fifth of cats are taken on family holidays and 15 per cent of owners confess to serving their cat specially-made meals on a daily basis. 15301
