If your cat tires of looking out the window at creatures beyond his grasp, he can now look into the television at creatures beyond his grasp. Video Catnip is a outdoorsy compilation of bird, squirrel, and chipmunk scenes geared towards your pet. Using quick movements, close-ups, and realistic sounds, the DVD is meant to capture and hold kitty's attention . . . and, perhaps in high definition, trick him into believing that he's actually outside. According to the website, cats watch the show intently, paw at the screen, or even run around the TV looking for where the animals went! The two-hour DVD costs $17.95 and auto repeats for their continual viewing pleasure/torture. I can't figure out if it's brilliant or pointless – what's your take?
