Put it on the open floor (not recommend putting it on high places - like on tables). The laser points downward with a relatively large area, so that the cat can exercise in a wide range and have more fun in playing. Cats love to chase the red dot. The exciting laser pointer moves randomly on floors and walls, which arouses cat's interest and inspires cats' hunting instinct. Some dogs like it too. RANDOM 360° ROTATION - The red dot can rotate 360° and change direction irregularly, sometimes far away and sometimes near (not around in circles). UNIQUE DESIGN - Super Quiet Design. 3 Settings are slow, fast or random. The laser toy automatically turns off after 15 minutes in random mode. Powered by 3 AAA batteries (NOT included in the package). You can just sit on the sofa and watch the cats chase the red dot, free your hands. It can also charge via USB.
