The Solar Chaser is a solar-powered cat toy – hey, why not?

Cats may love batting at tantilizingly-dangled kitty toys, but most of us can’t dangle those toys for our felines all day long – not even by remote control. The Solar Chaser was designed to pick up the slack, using an integrated solar panel to power its toy-bobbing arm.

Users simply stick the Solar Chaser in a sunny window, using its built-in suction cups. Once its power switch is flipped and sunlight hits its panel, it will begin swinging and jigging its arm, causing a toy attached to a ribbon at its end to dance around. As long as the sun keeps shining (even indirectly, apparently), the cat can keep playing.

The arm can also be detached, for use by hand.

The Solar Chaser is priced at US$39.95, and can be seen in use in the video below.

Cats sleep during most of the day-at least the few dozen I've known are that way. Perhaps battery backup may be a needed accessory.

What happens when the cat catches the toy and runs off with it, taking the device suctioned to the window with it?

I suspect that when that happens, the cat catches the toy and runs off with it, taking the device suctioned to the window with it.
