Why, you get him what he wants -- a robot to chase the cats with! Here's the link to the bot at Surveyor Corporation.

This little bot is very cute-- even the cats were amused.

I wish I could have gotten a shot of the robot running up against the cats...

The bot has laser eyes, which Ginger really loves. She's definitely a laser-dot chasin' cat.

Jalinda wasn't very amused by the bot. This is the only picture I got. After this, she refused to be in the same room!

Kitty Bot! I love it! One question though - how much does therapy for cats cost?

Has he tried the little indoor RC helicopters on the cats yet? One of ours just leaves the room - she can't stand the noise. The other one has made some incredible leaps in the air trying to catch that bumblebee.

ooo! good idea. Especially if the RM could mount a camera on it!

Thanks for the gift idea, Elizabeth!!
