Cats plus lasers probably sounds like some people’s idea of the best thing to do with the LOLCat meme, but for FroliCat it’s a business model. Their BOLT promises to keep your household feline (or dog) active, by giving it a tireless laser dot to chase, and Gear Diary have been testing it out.

Well, we say Gear Diary tested it; Judie didn’t actually chase around the laser on her hands and knees. Instead she left it to gadget-testing cat Avah, who – judging by the video below – seems to enjoy the randomly-flicking dot.
Controls on the BOLT are straightforward, with a power button in the base that flips between automatic mode (for hands-free use, with the device stood upright like a bowling pin) and manual mode (where you can guide the pointer yourself, or conduct a bizarre PowerPoint presentation to a cat audience) together with a slider to adjust the flicking mirror inside. Best of all is the price; at just $19.95 it’s hardly more expensive than a cheap laser pointer.
