1. Telekitty: Okay, so it鈥檚 not exactly science, but it definitely is adorable. Telekitty is the translator app for your cat. Just snap a photo of your feline and using their 鈥淐at Purrcognition鈩 software,鈥 Telekitty will return your pic with a caption of your furry friend鈥檚 thoughts. You can then decorate the pic and share it with everyone. It鈥檚 pretty purr-fect.
