I recently treated Pete to a Cat Dancer from Amazon, £4.10. It arrived yesterday, which was a nice coincidence, as 5th January is the day I have designated as his birthday. It’s a piece of thin steel wire. At one end is a short piece of rolled-up cardboard which is the handle. At the other end are multiple pieces of rolled-up cardboard. The cat servant holds the handle bit, waves the wire around, and the cat goes daft chasing the other end.
Well, it works. Pete has been going crazy chasing the thing, leaping on and off furniture, turning circles and leaping after it. I doubt it will last long, but for £4, I’m not too concerned. Great buy.
