Cats love to chase the little red dot of the laser cat toy along the floor or even up the wall. My favourite trick is letting them pounce on the laser dot, then immediately switching it off so they think they’ve got it, then let them try to find it under their paws. Evil, huh?
Naturally you’ll want to be careful with this toy so that you never shine it at your cat’s face. This can be tricky if you have more than one cat.
We also find that the three little button batteries don’t last very long, so if the cat’s looking the other way, switch it off.
