Mailmen Pit: the essential tool to trap your local postal worker
A new study published in the “New England Journal of Pet-Postal Antagonism” looked at the efficacy of the “Mailmen Pit” in catching and trapping unsuspecting postal workers. A rather simple device that only requires minor excavations in one’s front yard close to the mailbox, it proved rather successful in providing hours of joy for the average canine.
It’s specificity approached close to 87 %, meaning only 13 % of “false catches” consisted of neighbor kids, uninformed spouses or other friends and relatives.
Blueprints for the roughly 6’ by 10’ feet hole in the ground are available here or at major retailers (shovels and yard not provided).

Don't ever lose your dachshund in the snow again.
A revolutionary new product was presented at the “North American Veterinary Conference” in Orlando, FL, in February.
“Stilts ®”, a comfortable and easy to use leg elongation item for short legged canines, was one of the most anticipated introductions into the pet health care sector. “Stilts will change the lives of many dachshunds and basset hounds” said Dr. C, a spokeswoman for Callous Canines Manufacturing (CCM ®). “This product easily raises the average wiener dog’s height to between 5’9’’ and 6’8’’. Imagine a squirrel’s utter confusion having an oversized predator staring at it from above. Most pet health insurance plans will cover stilts as an essential and medically necessary tool to aid in our canine’s self esteem”.
Price to be determined after first lawsuits.
A new pet product has emerged on the publicity scene with quite a splash. Not since Cabbage Patch Kids has there been such a furor in the malls. This reporter was intrigued with the product after reading the latest press release and receiving an alert regarding the 1.5million “shares” this product announcement received on Space Book.
“Just released for wide distribution…
The much-anticipated release of CatLeap, the spring-loaded cat boots, has taken its final step into the marketplace. You may now purchase these fabulous footwears in retail pet stores, online with Amazon and Alibaba, or direct from the manufacturer, AstroFeet Ltd., for $23/boot.
Cats can now reach altitudes achieved as yet only by adventurous city racoons. Feline flyers will soar and land with impunity. The athletically challenged and the cumbersomely obese mousers will now exert an advantage over the fuzzy rodentia with aerial attacks.”
While the product seemed to perform as advertised, the safety performance numbers were conspicuously missing from all product accounts. This reporter, acting on behalf of fragile felines everywhere, looked deeper into R&D at AstroFeet Ltd.
After much investigation, something more nefarious appears to be afoot. It was discovered that AstroFeet Ltd. is a shell company owned by Drs. Hammers, Slammers and Hitch, all veterinary surgeons practicing under revoked state veterinary licenses and black-list decertification from the Veterinary Surgeons Board. To this reporter, the CatLeap scheme looks to have fluttered right out of a horror flick. The afore mentioned diabolic cutters purposely created a product that would make money on the front end through sales, and on the tail end through surgery services repairing all of the fractured felines.
Save your money and your fuzzy feline honey and avoid the CatLeap boots this summer. This product hype reached heights no feline was designed to achieve.
2017 model cat guillotines have been discounted by 50 - 70 %. They can be mail ordered from Crafty Canines® for $ 149.99. A dog spokesperson for the company explained that the device can be directly mounted to any commercially available cat door.
Inspired by the “Back to my Mac” feature that allows you to connect remotely to networked Apple devices, an “IHunt”® device attached to a hunting dog’s collar is now available that links directly to shot waterfowl through the “back to my duck” feature, describes an article in “Callous Canines”. While the exact mechanism is proprietary knowledge of the manufacturer GPS pellets in shotgun shells seem to play a role.
