So Wicket has this love/hate relationship with the laser pointer. I don't think he'd ever seen one before we got him because when he saw it first he flipped out a little bit. For a while I'm pretty sure he didn't even know we were in control of it, which made the fallout even worse--the playing isn't the problem, but when we turn it off, he thinks it's still in the house somewhere! He won't rest, prowls from room to room, looks nervous, jumps at the smallest sound, and looks generally PO'd for hours after we use it. Eventually he did catch on to the fact that it was a toy we could turn on and off, which I think helped a bit, but even now, he hears the jingle of the keyring and starts to look all twitchy, it's awful and hilarious at the same time. The kitten can't be bothered, which is good....but man, is it wrong that I love using it because it makes him so funny to watch afterwards? The way he acts around it makes us both laugh so hard we can't talk.....great for us...bad for him?
