During my recent visit to friends in North Carolina I could enjoy the funny games of their two cats Millie and Gracie. At one stage we brought out the wicked red laser pen. Both were fascinated with the red dot and just could not comprehend why they could not catch it.
First they tried to "stare it down".
Well, that did just not worked. It moved! And it moved along the floor. So Gracie tried to "nail it".
As this was not a successful technique either, they tried to catch the dot as it "ran up the kitchen cabinets".
And as the dot moved along the cabinet, Gracie "got it" in her leap off the floor.
… well, almost...
As it moved out of the kitchen Millie tried to chase it off one of the ornaments in the house.
Needless to say, the red dot had other plans and moved around the house.
It moved to the living room and little Gracie went on to chase it away.
And in a last attempt she leapt onto the sofa to finish it for good.
It was an entertaining game…. Poor little kittens…. The culprit with the laser pen can be seen in the window reflection. If only they knew...
Do your cats have a love/hate relationship with the red laser dot or other toys? Tell us about it and send in your comments.
