April Update

Posted by Lee Miller (Creator)

Hi Kickstarter,

Just back from a visit to our factory in Suzhou. We’re definitely in the final stages here (see below for pics of our packaging assembly line) and are working to get all assembly and packing wrapped up so we can ship our container in the next few weeks. As our last update noted, we had hoped to be on the water before the end of April, but some last-minute refinements have pushed that date back just a little. We will post another Kickstarter update as soon as the shipment has left our factory. After the Kittyos are on their way, we will also send out an address-gathering survey via Kickstarter to make sure we have your current mailing address and contact information. Once the container reaches our fulfillment house in the US, your Kittyos will be mailed out and you will receive a tracking number via email.

Thanks again for your support—and your patience. We can't wait to get your Kittyos to you!

Cheers, 
 Team Kittyo

      When do you expect to send out the updated address survey? My address has changed and I want my Kitty-o to come to my new place. Is there an email we can send updated information to? If so will you please share it on Kickstarter? Thank you.

      Yay, I have lost one of my babies during this time so very keen to get it so I can watch my babies from afar!

      Last minute refinements pushed back dates AGAIN an extra few weeks before actually shipping. If the items actually ship as promised the next time, it's then ANOTHER few weeks on the water before they even get to the warehouse. So, here we go again, an update that has pushed us out at least another 2 months. This project has been a joke 2 years in the making when backers were led to believe the project was MUCH further along at the time of backing. I think the Furbo will even deliver before this project! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/furbo-world-s-first-treat-tossing-dog-camera#/

      It must be such a thrill for you to see the actual product in the shipping boxes! Can't wait to get it!

      Dear Kittyo team,

      I am so thrilled to read this update! As much as it has been kind of a bummer that this process has taken two years (wow! time flies!), I just wanted to say that I FULLY appreciate your transparency and detailed updates rather than leaving backers in the dark. I am so so so excited to receive my Kittyo and hopefully it will arrive just in time before I leave to spend the summer abroad. It will mean the world to me to be able to interact beloved kitty at home with this amazing product that you have obviously gone to great lengths to ensure it's success. :)
