Amusing to see how a cat drawn to a laptop for its warmth, can accidentally entertain itself with a simple moving cursor.
There is no question that Toby is actually getting the computer to do something that he wants it to do ? and there are not many things he actually could want it to do.
He is successfully getting the computer to move the cursor so that he can follow it.
Drawn by the warmth, he positioned himself over the trackpad. When he would move a little bit the cursor would move ? the more he moved the more the cursor moved.
I am amused by the fact that some computers have inadvertently developed designs that make the features of interest to cats discoverable by cats.
