Feline Jumping For Joy

My cat, Hayden, loves the BOLT. In the last few weeks, my husband and I have been amused by Hayden's pouncing, chasing, jumping and batting at the laser dot throughout our kitchen. Hayden seems to enjoy the BOLT more than other laser toys because the laser patterns are more random than other laser toys, resulting in his higher level of enthusiastic play.

Additionally, the BOLT is different than other laser toys because it can be used automatically or manually. While my husband, Matthew, prefers to set in the automatic mode so that Hayden can get a timed, 15-minute play session, I choose to use it in the manual mode to create my own laser patterns. I use the adjustable mirror to aim the laser toy across a variety of surfaces like floors, tables, and walls and watch Hayden somersault into pure joy.

May have to check out the BOLT too! I haven't invested in a laser toy for my boys, but I bet they'd love it.
