Let's face it. No matter how much we love our feline friends at home, cat poop is generally offensive. Although we can contain its physical presence within the four corners of the litter box, its smell is undeniably hard to contain. Thankfully, Taiwan-based Conary Enterprise Co., Ltd., is taking a leaf out of NASA's (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) book, bringing a "space age" odor eliminator to our homes - the VentiFresh.
Sporting a form factor that looks like a capsule speaker or a portable USB fan, the VentiFresh (now at its 2.0 version) houses a UV catalyst core that disintegrates odor by means of natural photosynthesis, resulting in clean air. This is the same photocatalyst technology used by NASA in the International Space Station to process bad smell. Not only the VentiFresh eliminates the bad odor caused by the cat's poop, it also removes the nastiness brought about by the cat's urine. The feline pee contains high amount of ammonia that can cause eye irritation, excessive coughing, high heart rates, irritated lung membranes, nausea, and pneumonia. With the VentiFresh, problems associated with your cat's poop and pee are kept at bay.
The latest VentiFresh 2.0 packaging comes with a VentiFresh Gel-Pad, extended cable, and a power plug. The quiet motor fan within is powered by through a 5V USB cable, consuming a very low 3W energy per hour. The VentiFresh has a long lifespan of 10,000 hours and is covered by a one-year warranty. Conary Enterprise Co., Ltd., offers the VentiFresh 2.0 for the price of USD 69.99 (around PhP 3,700). Interested cat owners may pur(r)chase one at www.ventifresh.com.
