Petcube Bites 2 Lite – Smart HD Pet Camera w/ Treat Dispenser

Leaving your pet(s) alone at home is something that’s always hard to do, and it can actually be quite heartbreaking. Plus, every time you have to leave your pets at home, that can also easily become a worrying situation. Some pets can become mischievous when left alone at home, as they might find different ways to keep themselves entertained by making a mess of whatever they find, whether that’s a pair of shoes, or even your precious couch. Moreover, some pets can also suffer from separation anxiety when left alone (mainly dogs, but also cats), where they’ll become extremely anxious and start showing distress behaviors until their owner(s) return home. This is where getting a smart pet camera can come in handy, as these smart home devices allow pet owners to not just see their pets and keep an eye on them, but also hear and talk to their furry friends, with some smart pet cameras even giving owners the ability of playing remotely with them and also toss their pets some delicious treats.
