If you’ve ever watched your cat starting at something that doesn’t seem to be there, you might have wondered whether cats see things that we can’t.

At the recent American Association of Feline Practitioners Conference, a recurring topic was the use of AI (artificial intelligence) to help detect pain in cats.

Tably is a new AI based app that is designed to monitor your cat’s mood by simply pointing your phone at her face.Continue Reading
