Boots is so lazy! We’ve bought half a dozen cat toys and he isn’t interested in any of them. We bought one that had a little “critter” that kinda ran around under a blanket like piece of fabric and every now and then would hop out and then go back under the blanket. In theory, the cat is supposed to run around and pounce on the blanket to grab whatever is under there. Not Boots. He would stretch out by the edge of the blanket and if the thing came near him, he would slap at it but never put much effort into it.
Vince bought him a plastic cat laser. It’s electric and we set it up in the living room. Here’s the effort Boots puts into it.
The laser goes all over the room so Boots knows eventually, it’s going to come close to him.
He will slap at it with his paw but that’s all the effort he’s going to exert.
Every now and then he’ll get up and see where the light is but I wouldn’t call it exercise. That’s ok . . he probably says the same things about us.
He’s a pretty cat and sometimes he’s a sweet cat. I guess that counts for something.
