This kitty kept trying to catch items that were on my computer screens. So, I decided to make a little app that will entertain the cat. Ironically, after failing to catch the mouse, the cat gave up and lost interest in the computer screen. This allowed me to continue working without interruption.
The results are funny and entertaining. I hope you enjoy this video.
The mouse on the computer screen was drawn with Inkscape - open source SVG graphics (picture) editor. Inkscape is a free download at: http://inkscape.org
The video was taken with a Cisco Flip HD camera
