OK, I’m drawing the line. I’m drawing the red laser line.
There’s a new product that apparently is making waves in the pet world, and I have to say, it’s ridiculous. It’s the BOLT Interactive Laser Toy, made by FroliCat. You set the toy on the ground and it basically points a laser all over the room while your cat (or dog, I guess) chases it.
That is it. If you are too lazy to point your own laser, you shouldn’t own a cat! Unless you are not physically able to hold a laser pointer, you need to be doing this yourself. This is the ultimate in laziness.
“But it’s won all kinds of awards,” you say. True. It was named the Best in Show in the cat category (or category as I’ll call it) at the Global Pet Expo earlier this year. The only thing this tells us that the judges are advocates of laziness.
“Maybe you could leave it on while you’re gone,” you say. No. Unless you are gone for a silly long time every day, no. Want a better solution? Get your cat a friend! Adopt a second cat or maybe even a dog.
“But it’s only $20,” you say. No. Spend $20 on taking your cat to the vet or donate $20 to an animal cause.
Don’t buy an automatic laser pointer, unless you’re too lazy to hold your own laser pointer, in which case you are too lazy to even own a cat in the first place.
