Keeping your cat young and playful has never been easier with this hands-free interactive cat toy that runs entirely on either ambient or direct sunlight.

Designed by the Solar Chasers Company, the 'IrresistiCat' is a simply designed product that will help to keep your furry feline friend entertained while you're away. The device stores up energy using an attached solar panel to propel a ball along a enclosed circular track. The amount of activity depends on the source of light, with a well-lit room causing the ball to move every couple of minutes, and exposure to direct sunlight causing the ball to constantly stay in motion.

This actually isn't the company's first foray into solar-powered interactive cat toys. Previously, they had released the 'Solar Chaser,' a simple sun-powered toy that dangled and jiggled a ribbon into the air to help perk a cat's curiosity.
