Black Friday is exciting for humans, but for your pets it’s just another day. If you’re braving the cold, long lines (or hunkering down at your computer scouring our Deals Tracker,) you can keep an eye on your fur babies, as well as reward them for their patience and cuteness, with the PetCube Bites camera and treat dispenser.

If you haven’t seen this device yet—in our writeup, on Ellen, or on Kickstarter — it’s a total game changer. The smartphone-connected camera allows you to check in on your pets when you’re not at home, and even talk to them with two-way audio. Plus, with the PetCube Bites, you can add treats to the internal container and the PetCube will toss them to your pet on command (or you can set up a schedule in the app.) You get to stay connected to your pet no matter where you are—working late, out to dinner, or in line at TargetRead more…
