Effie’s ghost game

I honestly have some reservations about Effie’s fascination with the laser pointer. We’re careful not to point it at her eyes, but I’m not sure she should be quite so obsessed with chasing down something ephemeral, ever hopeful of clutching the non-physical point of light. The moving light speck does get her running, and she chases it throughout the house and up the walls a couple of feet as I walk ahead of her, pointing it in all directions. But I still think a self-respecting cat needs to pounce on objects inherent in physical reality, and shred them to death. I would welcome input from other cat people.
