I've been using a radio-controlled toy car, but she just jumps up on the arm of the couch or a chair and watches it.

I'm thinking of switching to a R/C toy helecopter! tongue

She ignores laser pointers.

Have you tried different colors? We had a neighborhood cat that ignored the red dot, but went batshit for the green one.

Hmm?  I've never seen a green pointer.  I might try that, but she's a lazy-ass.  She'll bat at a toy on a string for  a minute or two, then give up and quit.  Thus my proactive approach with the R/C car. smile

You can get red, green, and blue-violet from Amazon for $5ish each.

Caution with the blue-violet - it puts out a bit of UV.

I have a cat who will only play with hot pink toys.

That kind of stuff that scares the crap out of my cats.

Put a bit of catnip on the end of a string. Dangle it in front of her but don't let her catch it. She'll chase it all over the house as long as you play with her.

If the cat doesn't leave the house it needs a companion. Cats get bored when they're all alone.

You mean something like "Da Bird" with you controlling it doesn't keep her engaged?
