Apps for Pets? [Coffee-byte]

Just like the way, we have adopted technology as a part and parcel of our daily lives, other animals, too, do not seem to have any issues adopting it as well. While they cannot build tablets and smartphones for themselves, they are surely interested in a game or two, if you offer.

And if you thought, only primates and dolphins were smart, check the pigs in this pen who know how to collaborate with their human team mate and get the perfect score.

  Friskies takes this even further and has already released three games for your little ball of fur. Here's a short video of how cats enjoy their time with the iPad.
