729: Laser Pointer
Title text: It's a lasing cat-vity!
It is common to use a laser pointer as a cat toy because cats are attracted to the dot and attempt (in vain) to catch it in their paws. Only in its dreams can a cat successfully catch and consume the dot. Also, it is only in a dream that this will give it power to shoot lasers from its eyes, and vaporize the taunting human. (It is a common joke that cats have no morals and view their humans as subordinates.)
The title text makes a pun on laser cavity.
