Buying my cat an iPhone
I have a cat and he really likes my iPhone. They have a game for iDevices called FRISKIES, and he really loves to interact with the ponds, and catch the fish, and things like that. He also plays Angry Birds really well.
I've heard of Elephants and monkeys really being able to work iDevices.
Have you ever considered buying your pet an iDevice?

People give their pets Facebook accounts and let them have shoes, why not?
I don't have a monkey, but I'm pretty sure that if you handed it an iDevice that he would be able to answer a call. I could probably FaceTime with it. Make sure everything's okay.They can also listen to music.
My cat is very smart you know, I mean he really knows how to play Angry Birds. No, I mean he's actually good at it! Lol!!
What do your pets do when you hand them an iDevice?

I think my horses would probably shatter the screen the first time they tried to toggle between apps.
During the winter months when it's rainy or snowy outside and they have to be in the barn, they are a lot calmer in the barn when I've got my iPhone with me and am using my Sirius app. I've either got it on the Met Opera channel or the Cinnemagic channel and they love it. Really calms them down.
My dog would eat it. She eats light bulbs.
My cats would probably never wake up.

And with fishes, you could probably get an iPad and sit it beside them, have a pond app so they would have someone to play with, my teacher used to do that. You know, with the types of fish that get red when they see themselves.
And you could also let your hamster get more exercise if they saw you on FaceTime. It might give them more motivation.

Ooh, Jet's soooo cuuute!! Trying to catch that mouse, I hope it's not frustrating to them. I mean he keeps swiping at it, but the mouse seems to not react. It just stops for a second and keeps on going.
But I totally would get my pet an iPad more than an iPhone. I mean, only because animals don't know how to talk yet.
If I did get them the phone, I would have to get all of them a phone. Maybe they could talk to each other. Lol

Some of our feline friends are our closest. So I mean, would it really hurt to buy them one? They already know how to use it.. They might not be able to talk, but they can hear your voice. And they can recognize you.
And I mean, they can even read bedtime stories without ripping the pages

Well I don't know about cats and dogs, but animals can use iPads apparently.
Only the smart animals. I heard that in some zoo in California, they communicate with the animals with apps for the iPad.
And at seaworld, dolphins get trained with iPads now. I wonder if you could show a pigeon how to deliver mail across New York city using the Maps app. I bet you could.
