If you want a gag gift, look for gum that promises to let you instantly talk with your cat. That way you can share ideas ranging from stock tips to cooking recipes. The package promises “For enhanced communication with your feline friends, apply directly to the hole located between your nose and chin. Do not overuse product! You only need a whisker!”

Of course, if you should actually buy this product and believe its promises, perhaps you need more than special gum and a cat. Then again, you can always talk to your cat without gum, but the real trick is getting your cat to listen.
