Caturday: Mesmer kitty zones out to Todd Rundgren
Cats always seem to be off in some world of their own, but TUAW reader Roy Behymer found a way to entrance his beautiful cat Sienna with the help of an iPad mini and an app by rock legend Todd Rundgren.
"This is Sienna. Normally she's aloof and doesn't concern herself with lowly human technology, but this one time was different. I had Todd Rundgren's "Flowfazer' running to deplete the battery in my iPad Mini and found I had created Mesmer Kitty in the process. If only I had been playing Rundgren's 'A Dream Goes On Forever', the tableau would have been complete. Then again, Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' would have worked just fine too."
We'd love to see photos of your favorite feline soaking up the warmth of an Apple product, chasing a Magic Mouse, or just being a general nuisance while you're attempting to work on your Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Please let us know via our feedback page and please remember that your cat photo has to have some sort of connection to Apple or its products. For security reasons we can't accept inbound attachments, so you should host the photo (Dropbox, Flickr, iPhoto Journals, etc.) and send us the link.
Many thanks to Roy and Sienna!
