13. I read somewhere that the reason cats get tired of their toys

is that for cats, playing is just simulating hunting. So once they've caught their toy "prey" and swatted it around for awhile, they've killed it; but since they can't eat it and it's just lying there dead, it's no fun any more. The red dot triggers the chase instinct, but maybe your cat has concluded it's something he can neither catch nor eat, so to hell with it.

Maybe something that squeaks?
