See how your dog or cat views the world by creating a pet cam. If you're old enough to use a video camera, this is a great way to understand your pets a little better. You'll have fun sharing your pet cam videos with your family, too.

What You'll Need:

  • Video camera or pen and paper

Step One: Get down on your hands and knees, grab your camcorder, and follow your dog or cat around the house. What does your pet see? What does he do? How do you think she feels?

Step Two: Create a videotape and call it "A Day with My Pet."

If you don't have a video camera, you can still record the world from your pet's viewpoint. Draw four or five illustrations based on what you saw during your observations. If you add captions, the results can be hilarious!

You can become your neighborhood's official sidewalk artist -- and show the world your great neighborhood pets. Check out the next page.
