Actbrise has released a cat that is actually a computer mouse, and it has a design that leans more towards the joystick than everyone’s favorite pointing peripheral. Tilt the cat left and the pointer will move accordingly. A quartet of buttons on the back cater for normal clicks and scrolling purposes. …
