The cat had done it. After years of chasing and stalking, Nimbus had caught the red dot.
He had the point of light stuck fast between his claws, and no matter how hard the human pulled or waived the little hand-held device the dot came from, it was going nowhere. Nimbus meowed in triumph and bit the red dot experimentally. It tasted like the memory of lying in a sunbeam on a perfect summer afternoon.
His human gave up and set down the laser pointer. With the dot still trapped between his claws, Nimbus curled up and went to sleep.
