An Israeli Start-up, Cat2See, which sells a gadget that allows pet owners to view, feed, play with, and even pester their lil’ own cat, is sweeping the internet, according to The Marker business newspaper.

The system has three parts, which are all remotely controllable: a feeder that can also be preprogrammed to release up to five pounds of dry kibble, a wiggling, spinning fishing pole, and an hi-rez internet videocamera that rotates 360 degrees.

“Cats are the most viral thing on the Internet after sex; 23% of the blogs on the Internet are on cat topics,” co-founder and CEO Gilad Gelfand told Israel’s Haaretz. “One out of every five pictures on Instagram is of cats.”

Each part of the system costs $69.99, and the three-pack of gadgets together goes for $169.99, not including shipping.
