      It's a really small dog. I think it's gonna be great. If not, my bad.

      Thanks for all the support, folks! We've got our heads down working but you'll hear from us intermittently. We love hearing about all your cats and their cute names.

      @Ari-Pekka: Please note that Shru is not currently being designed to withstand the force of a canine. Please see the FAQ on the project page for more details.

      I love the name...Donovan (when the weather is nice) catches them by the three's or four's a day. It is wholesale shrew collection. If I don't screen him at the door he will bring them in so that I can have some fun chasing them too! I curse a bit but that doesn't seem to phase him in the least. And they can bite too...cute little things but they can leave a mark if yer not wearing gloves. This just may be a thing to keep Donovan occupied and to let the little critters have a happy life. The shrews thank you. Kev

      Cool stuff Jason - the $125 backers can't wait to start helping you make this thing work. Don't try to do it all alone. My two cat's are just waiting to get their claws into the egg.

      Proud of you Jason. I wish you all the best as you move forward with this project - my two kitty cats wish you all the best as well :)

      Good luck finding a contractor. Note that when you need to assemble this many items, keep things simple & easy to assemble, and do quality testing too! There is a LOT that can go wrong during production. Take into account defective items, margin errors (nothing is perfect in life, and especially not in production), and know that around 5% will never pass testing or needs small repairs.

      Amazing and great idea, our 2 cats will certainly enjoy, and so will I :-).
      I hope your business will thrieve and you'll come up with something similarly genious soon !

      Hi Jason, egg is a much better name than shru I think. Shru is "angry, bitchy". Not a fun toy.
