Cat and Laser Pointer (photo) — 4 Comments

  1. Without the Laser Som would not have learned her name so fast nor would she have come when called either, she really loves it so much, I only have to call her and say play time and she is crouched ready on the Bed in an instant. I think she enjoys it so much it cannot be a bad thing. She likes the Ipad too. Are we spoiling our cats?

    • Excellent comment, Alan, because your cat and mine likes it so much it is an excellent training aid. The reward (the positive reinforcement) is playing with the pointer. The training is responding to her name. You could extend that to all kinds of training in theory.

      It can’t be a bad thing as you say. It is stimulating. Cats need that so much.

      You are as bad (or as good) as me. Yes, we are spoiling our cats a bit but knowing that won’t stop me.
