Cat repeatedly runs into the wall in effort to catch a laser (VIDEO)

It's said that curiosity has a way of getting a cat into trouble, and this determined feline might just be on a mission to prove that point.

When owner Kyle Stephenson breaks out a laser pointer, his frisky cat cannot resist trying to catch the fleeting red dot. No obstacle is too great. Nothing can break this cat's single-minded focus on that laser.

Not even the walls.

Every time the dot alights on a wall, the cat hurls himself at it — with a resounding thud each time, naturally. And, each time, the kitty's vain attempts elicit laughs out of Stephenson and his laser-pointing accomplice.

On the other hand, the joke might be on them, as we're not entirely convinced this cat isn't actually a novice in the ninja-like art of parkour.

Better watch your back, Stephenson.
