    My husband started to watch and then said: "What 5 minutes of ducks chasing the dot. You've gotta be kidding." Then he left the room. Well did he miss out. The second half was more funny. A duck falling over, another one bitting the other duck's tail trying to get the dot, anther one biting its own tail, and then the team effort on on tail including the duck owning it. Had a blast. Got to get myself a new pointer. The old one got used to much with the crazy cat.

    Ha ha ha ha! They think it's a bug, yum yum, but sure can't catch it. I'm amazed that ducks will focus on one thing for that long.

    ETA: Yeah, second part was really funny, especially when he started to point the light on the ducks and they were pecking at it.

    Chasing the pointer works on human babies too... not that I would do such a thing... ahem,... it was a friend of a friend's cousin's boyfriend's mom's coworker... yeah...
