Cats love to pounce on imaginary light created by flashlights or laser pointers. Since you may not always be around to play with your cat, consider buying an interactive laser pointer toy instead.
This laser pointer toy runs off batteries so you don’t have to worry about electric cords. After turning the toy on, you can define different speeds. Then after displaying the laser for fifteen minutes, the toy will automatically shut itself off. This should give your kitty plenty of time to play while you can do something else.
