Max the Petaluma Cat Spins in Circles Chasing Laser Light

Max loves to chase laser lights.  We caught him on video spinning in circles trying to catch it.

Why do cats love chasing laser lights?  It’s in their predatory nature and instinctive to engage in a hunt. A fast moving dot of light simulates the movement of prey like a mouse. They love movement that changes direction and speed. Living creatures attribute that movement to life. Try not to watch a leaf fluttering down from a tree or a butterfly flying by. Some experts say that this sort of play allows the cat to rid of built up energy that indoor cats may not otherwise get.

Some may find that a laser toy is a great way to entertain and exercise your cat. However it should but be done with caution and safety for your pet. Don’t ever shine a laser light in cat’s eyes.
