geonni banner Posted May 10, 2012 Report Share Posted May 10, 2012 I have a kitten who has more "crazy-cat-wildness" than my 6-year-old cat can burn, so I got a bunch of "interactive" toys for him. One of the toys was a laser pointer. I had been warned about Border Collies finding laser pointers mesmerizing, addictive and a trigger for OCD behavior. I decided to proceed with caution, and accept that I might only be able to play with the cats and the laser pointer while Sugarfoot was out with the dog walker. I tested it with all 3 animals present. The kitten chased the light spot with wild abandon, but both my dog and my older cat instantly got that the light spot came from the device in my hand and completely lost interest. (Lucky me!) I wondered what others had to say about their experience with laser pointers and their dogs. Just FYI, those of you with cats: These toys were happily accepted and played with by my kitten. Just in case any of you have a nut-ball kitten that needs non-destructive exercise. This toy emits a lifelike mouse squeak each time it's touched. Very exciting for Tombo! It' called a "Tethered & Feathered Play Wand." This toy comes with a spring-like supporting structure between the cover and the lining, and attached ties so it can be collapsed down and tied flat for storage.
