Cats are hunters by nature, and a good portion of the toys that are aimed at them involve tapping into that hunting instinct. Cats don’t seem to be able to tell the difference between an actual prey animal and something that simply mimics the appearance of a prey animal, which can be a good way to entertain them and a good way to get a laugh.
The adorable Persian kittens in this video chase around an electronic blue toy that almost looks like a giant insect. They keep going after it in spite of the fact that it doesn’t really act like a prey animal that they would encounter in the wild. The video is seven and a half minutes long, and yet those minutes fly by given the circumstances. Given the popularity of cat videos, especially if the cats are doing something funny, this is a video that people on Facebook would love.
