My mom and I went shopping yesterday and she (the finder of all good finds) spotted a laser kit. She asked the clerk how much it was and it was only $2.50.
I was so excited that she found this laser. Jon has been searching for a cheap laser to use as a cat toy for ages and I got to beat him to it.
My mom and I tried it out on the cats yesterday afternoon when we got back to our apartment. Shinji wanted nothing to do with it and completely ignored it. But NukuNuku fell for it hook, line, and sinker. I've never seen her run so hard or fast in circles before.
I surprised Jon with the laser as soon as he walked in the door and he spent the next fifteen minutes cracking up as NukuNuku chased the pointer around our apartment. In circles, on the couch, on the floor, up the wall, up the door...it's the most entertaining toy for her.
This morning, Jon finally got Shinji to respond to the laser (ever the cat-whisperer he is) and he started going crazy too.
Thanks for the great find, mom! This will keep us all entertained for days!
