Tired of tolerating cuddles from quarantined humans, cats around the world are using laser pointers to keep housebound humans entertained.

“They just kept petting us and petting us,” said Cats Against Excessive Contact communications director Lord Meowington of Purrsbury, through a translator. “We had to do something to keep them busy. We just couldn’t stand by and let this happen anymore.”

After a lot of research, Meowington said, the group determined that humans needed distraction to keep them away from their pets. Laser pointers were the obvious answer. They declined to comment on using the devices without thumbs.

Velvet Hamster reached out to various dog groups, which confirmed that they have no problems with the increased attention.
