​Want to check in on your cat and see how she's doing? ​You used to ​have to wait for your awesome pet sitter ​to send you a picture ​so you could feel some relief. But ​things have changed! 

Now we can ​watch and ​play with our cats ​from our ​phones. Some of the best cat cameras even enable ​you to talk to your cat, dispense treats and ​play with a laser pointer! 

I've broken ​it down into two core types of cameras: interactive and monitoring. Interactive will let you ​engage with your cat. Monitoring cameras are ​to look in on your cat.
