Center for Advanced Technology


I sometimes have difficulty settling in for a good night’s sleep so when I heard that there was a new product that could possibly help me I had to check it out.  Sometimes my mind races with thoughts of what needs to be done or places I need to go.  Sometimes my legs seem to be all over the bed and I can’t find a comfortable spot.

I was reading my Men’s Health magazine and found an article about a new device developed by the Center for Advanced Technology.  This product promised to take care of these problems that seem to plague me at night.

When I read the product description it seemed like the ideal thing to own.  I couldn’t wait.  I had to get one. I got on line and ordered this product and waited for it to come.  Finally it got here. I must say that it works very well despite its few drawbacks. I probably should have waited for the new and improved model which I am sure they are working on so that all of the kinks were worked out, but oh, well.

What is this wonderful new must have item you ask?  It is called the Comfortable Anti-anxiety Throw, CAT for short.  The CAT is fur covered so it is soft and feels good to the touch.

The CAT comes with many features.  You know how some people can’t fall asleep without a white noise machine?  Well, with the CAT no machine is needed.  The CAT produces its own pleasing and relaxing relaxing sound.  If you are like me and like to run your hand over the fur the noise will get progressively louder.

If you have lower back pain the CAT will undoubtedly find its way to the small of your back and bunch up in that spot.  It is amazing how much heat radiates from the CAT.  I must tell you, however, that when the CAT is in this position it is sometimes difficult to move the CAT or for you to shift positions.  Because of this immovability, the CAT also works well for keeping covers in place.

If you have Restless Leg Syndrome you might consider getting two CATs.  With one on each side of your legs your feet will stay still throughout the night. Come morning you just have to smooth out the covers because blankets and sheets did not shift thanks to the CAT.

Of course, when I got mine I went for the deluxe model which could have been a mistake on my part.  You see, my CAT comes with a built in morning alarm.  However, there is no way to set the alarm or turn it off.  This is something the tech guys need to work on.  The CAT goes off whenever it feels like whether I want to get up at that time or not.  It will not stop until I get out of bed. There is also no way to adjust it when we switch to Daylight Savings Time.

I must admit that I did get more than one CAT.  I actually have three.  Some might think that this is too many, but what do they know.  I am really happy with my three CATs and would not trade them in.

So, if you are having difficulty sleeping I highly suggest that you look into getting a CAT.  You will not be sorry.

Here are the ones I got helping me with my restless legs.



Oh, by the way, I hear that the Center also has another model who want to peacefully settle in.  It is called Drift Off Gently, DOG for short if this is more to your liking.

You might also want to go all out and get one of each.  Whatever works for you.

    Love it! I miss my DOG and CATS and they were most helpful with all the things you have experienced. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I admit you had me going thinking that this thing was real! To my great surprise and laughter, I discover jokes on me 🙂
    I do have trouble sleeping and wish I could have many CATS to help me, alas my spouse is terribly allergic.

  6. You had me going there. I enjoyed this and sent the link to a few friends who can empathize with this type of sleep and indeed-life- aide 🙂

  7. Absolutely, I have both a CAT and a DOG – they are indispensable as sleep aids.
