My girlfriend and I saw the tv commercial about touch sensor water faucets and she asked me what if you bought this and we gone out of home and our cats jump and simply touch this faucet and left water running?
My cats love water the most! They will use paws to sweep the water out of water bowl and act like dog to drink toilet water! Cats love to lean on window bar to watch outside where this faucet is right there.
So question is, will any pet be able turn water on by touch? I dont think fur will turn water on but paws? Paws does work on touch screen smart phones! :)
My experience is that many things will turn the water on and off. Metal objects (saucepans, our dogs water dish, etc) will turn it on and off, as will a wet towel. I am not sure what the technology is concerning how it detects to turn on and off, but more than just a human touch will do it. I would say there is a good chance that a cats paw or nose could turn it on. However, there is a feature built in that will shut the unit off after 5 minutes of not being touched, so even if the cat turns it on, it will shut off after 5 minutes. Another suggestion would be to put a towel over the faucet while you are gone, or disconnect the battery unit so the faucet won't function at all.
