Wacky patents - Method of Exercising a Cat

US patent #5443036: "Method of exercising a cat" by Kevin T. Amiss and Martin H. Abbott filed 2 Nov 1993, issued 22 Aug 1995

A method for inducing cats to exercise consists of directing a beam
of invisible light produced by a hand-held laser apparatus onto the
floor or wall or other opaque surface in the vicinity of the cat,
then moving the laser so as to cause the bright pattern of light to
move in an irregular way fascinating to cats, and to any other animal
with a chase instinct.
