Cat owners, here’s a question for you: Do you sometimes find it difficult to know if your cat is and is fine? Here’s another question: have you ever wondered if your house cat is really just looking naturally grumpy, or if there is actually something wrong with your cat?
Making sure your cat is okay is sometimes easier said and done, but luckily there is now an app that can help you figure things out.
The Tablely app uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help cat owners determine whether or not their pets are doing well.
The Tablely app is available for downloading from the App Store for Apple users and from the Play Store for Android users.

The Tablely app, which is currently in beta at the time of writing, was launched by a Canadian company called Sylvester.ai.
On its official website, Sylvester.ai says the company is “developing predictive health products using artificial intelligence to improve animal health outcomes across species.”
In particular, the Tablely app is a cat app that helps owners monitor the wellbeing and happiness of their pets. It can also check if your pet cat is in pain. Sylvester.ai uses what is known as AI-based remote patient monitoring.
The Hats app is useful not only for cat owners but also for veterinarians as it can help identify health problems early on and before they become a major problem.
This is how the table app works
According to a tweet published by Reuters, the Table app uses facial recognition technology and Sylvester.ai’s Feline Grimace Scale to predict a cat’s wellbeing.
The Feline Grimace Scale is “a validated tool that helps assess cat pain,” according to the Sylvester.ai website. Assessment is made by the Feline Grimace Scale based on five different facial features, which include ear position, muzzle tension, whisker position, orbital lift, and head position.
Since the Tablely app is still in beta mode at the time of going to press, the app experience is not exactly perfect. According to a report from NEWS 8 WTNH, the Tablely app’s face recognition technology is having trouble registering a black cat’s face.

Other cat apps, tech companies with cat-friendly causes
Many app developers have created apps that are specifically tailored for pets and pet owners. The Tablely App One is one of many apps developed for cat owners and their cat friends.
Late last year it was reported that a former Amazon engineer was developing a cat translator app designed to help owners understand their pets’ meowing.
Tech companies have also used their apps for cat-related purposes. In 2015, Foursquare announced a partnership with Alley Cat Rescue (ACR) to rescue stray cats with its Swarm app.
