Driving Kitty Insane

We got one of those laser pointers to play with the cat, and I’m afraid he has gone around the bend because of it.

See, cats can’t tell that the laser point, that little red dot, is not actually a bug out to get him.  So every time we switch it off, his pupils remain dilated and he is on the alert.  Waiting for the moment when Red Dot comes out of the walls to plague him.


Sometimes he waits like this, all evening, while we watch TV:

Red dot. Out to get him.  Like a mouse lost in the house.
