You pack up and leave for vacation while your furry friend has its nose pressed up against the window begging (sometimes literally) to go with you.
Pets quickly become a part of the family and there is a sense of guilt when you have to leave them alone at home.
This was the reason why Braden Kroll invented PetChatz , a device that allows you to talk with your pet even when you're not home.
As KABC in Los Angeles reports , PetChatz lets pet owners video chat with their pet using a computer, smart phone or tablet. Think of it as Skyping with your pet.
The device also lets pet owners reward their pet with a treat or even release a scent -- all at the push of a button.
