Our cat Coco loves all things shadow and light. We have fancy cat lures with feathers, and fake mice for her to chase and fling, but they fail to hold her attention long. Coco's main love and focus has always been shadows and light. In the afternoon she’ll spend hours watching the shadows on the wall curve as the sun makes its way across the sky, and at night a single beam of light reflecting from a cell phone on to the wall is enough to peak her interest and stir her in to action.
One day I thought I’d try something new and a bit out of the box: I ordered a small (4" diameter) disco ball and hung it from the ceiling. And guess what? She LOVES it! All it takes is a slight spin of the ball and suddenly the room is filled with sparkling light, a cosmos of stars whirling around the room. Feline heaven!
TIP: In case of grey skies, use a flashlight.
If your cat also loves shadow and light, give this little disco ball a try.
Amazon sells quite a few different varieties. We bought the 4" disco ball by Rhode Island for about $6 at www.amazon.com.
