The only way to draw off some of Midway's aggression is engaging him in regular active play......20 mins. at a time, twice a day minimum. If he's bored with the laser (because he can never catch the dot), then get some different toys---a wand type with feathers on the end, and wave it around in imitation of a bird flying, landing, and hopping around on the floor, landing on furniture, etc. Let him catch the bird occasionally. Try some ping pong balls....some cats like to play with one in a bath tub. Try some of the spirals/spings (available at a pet store), as they are light weight and easily batted around. Throw them for Midway, and encourage him to bring it back. Cats can retrieve small toys (mousies, springs) like a dog once they get the hang of it. Some pick it up fairly easily, others never get the hang of it. The point of all the play is to tire him out and drain off aggression. Good luck, all the best!
