Wise Cat

Everyone knows that cats love laser pointers. They will chase these “little red bugs” all day and never get tired. Ninja is different though.

When Ninja was a kitten, he loved chasing the little red bug. As he got older, he because suspicious. He would chase it for a little while and then realize that he should have caught it but couldn’t. Something was amiss. He would chase the bug for a little while then sit down and just watch it. His brother, don’t being quite as bright, still fully enjoyed playing ‘catch the red bug.’

Now, Ninja has caught on to the fact that the little red bug is, in fact, coming from a strange little object that dad is holding. Now, instead of chasing, or even paying attention to the bug, his gaze is affixed to my hand that is holding the laser pointer.
