they usually create these chirping noises whenever they see birds, rodents, and other small animals they want to hunt and catch.
Cats, by nature, are very territorial and are predatory animals.
So whenever they see that laser pointer you are using, they are showing that small red dot that there is only one king in your house – your cat!
They are showing signs of frustration
Finally, cats chirp or chatter to show their frustration.
Whenever they cannot catch a bird because there is a window acting as a barrier, or the lizard is too high on the ceiling, your cat might chatter to express their frustration.
The same goes with laser pointers – after all, who will not be frustrated after running after a laser pointer all day without catching it even once?
Do not worry about your cat acting “weird” whenever prey (or a laser pointer) around them.
There are many reasons why a cat chatters or chirps, but those that remain to be on the top are frustration, showing interest, and their predatory nature kicking in.
It is normal behavior for cats, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this.
Although, if it starts to look like your cat is starting to get way too frustrated, then maybe you can put off the laser pointer joke for a while and cuddle with them while binge-watching your favorite TV series.
