Why Cats Want a Laser Cat Toy

Splendid for Senior Cats

Even a Senior Cat like myself likes a toy.

I know I need a toy to keep myself in good health but to tell you the truth I do enjoy the opportunity to play like a kitten again.

Even on those mornings when I just don't feel like getting out of my basket, I jump up pretty darn quick when that laser light scurries across the floor.

You know what they say, If old age is catching up, pounce a little faster, and I like to pounce on my FroliCat BOLT Interactive Laser Pet Toy

Senior Cats need exercise

I may be napping 18 hours a day but I need my exercise too, just as much as I did when I was young. Possibly even more so.

My favourite way of staving off degeneration (don't you hate that word?) is with regular exercise, twice a day for ten minutes a time. Now that I'm getting on a bit, I need an extra push to get me going.

Watching these videos about the Frolicat has set my tail to twitching!

I want to jump on the screen and pounce on that little red light myself.

The young ones like the frolicat - Not just for the oldies

How the Frolicat works - How to turn it on, set it, etc

Dogs like the Frolicat too - Not just for cats

Don't overdo the exercise!

Use common cat sense

Remember that I'm a Sprinter, not a Marathoner, when you see me stretch out on the floor to watch instead of crouching with the tip of my tail flicking, then you know I've had enough.

Time for a break. We can both have a refreshing drink of water.

After I've exhausted myself with the Frolicat

I need to calm down after a session with my laser toy. I get frustrated by never catching that audacious red dot, the Hunter in me craves a Kill.

That's why the woman who feeds gives me some sponge balls and feathery things so that I can really pounce and get my teeth into something.

You don't have to be a cat to exercise - People need it too

How much exercise do you get?

See results

      It's hard to imagine how much cats love these until you've seen one in action. Cats are so focused, you sometimes have to be careful they don't run smack into walls with these things! I'd forgotten all about them until I read this lens, good job!
