      What's the address you have for shipping this product? What's the tracking number for this product to be shipped to my house and when my supposed to get this?

      I have a new playful kitten who cannot wait to see the finished product! Keep up the good work and the fun updates :)

      Your updates are much appreciated! It's a daunting task to create a product and get it to the marketplace. Having seen your videos, I think my cats are going to love their Shru!

      It is exciting to see the Shru's packaging going through tests, and distressing to realize how many little things can turn out the wrong size. I could never do what you people are doing: keeping track of so many variables on a time schedule.

      All our cats will be thrilled I am certain, to be able to be constantly amused. Thank you for your continued success. Your updates are very fun by the way.

      @ Debbie Foster: I am sorry to hear of the loss of your cat; we are actually managing a terminal illness of our 2 year old right now, so I understand how heartbreaking this is. I am truly so sorry for any added grief this project has brought you. I've also sent you an email in case you aren't checking the comments. ^__^

      Thank you so much for the update. I know it can a long time to bring a product from concept to final production, especially one this complex. People have to understand this isn't a "finished product" ready for sale you can just buy on Amazon. Glad to hear the SHRU project is still happening, and looking forward to getting one soon.

      Reading through the posts I found I am not the only person wondering where my Shru is at. Like someone else that posted, one of my cats, the one I specifically wanted this for unexpectedly passed away. And he was not an old cat. Had the Shru been delivered on time or even a few months late, I still would have been able to enjoy watching my cat play with it.

      Last I was told it was pushed out to June 2014. June 2015 is 2 months away! If I could demand a refund I would. This is ridiculous. Oh and it would make things more acceptable (to me at least) if in your once a month updates you apologized for the extreme delay instead of feeding me details I really don't care about at this point.

      Where's my Shru!

      Thank you for these detailed updates. I definitely appreciate the information about how production and testing of the SHRU components are progressing. Keep up the good work!

      @Kristin D: Thanks!! The battery lasts about 2 days with an average amount of play. If your cat interacts more with SHRU, SHRU will be alert more often, and the battery may last 1 or 1.5 days. Assuming one recharge per day, SHRU's battery will last about 2 years.

      The packaging looks great!

      As we get closer to having these, can you comment on the state of the battery in relation to what it says in the FAQ? (i.e. it lasts a day or two, can be recharged ~700 times, and is not replaceable?) Is all that still the case? Thanks!
