Let's start with a few reference points.

(1) "Dodgems" are electrically operated cars which derive their power from an overhead metal grid, via a vertical pole at the rear of the vehicle.

(2) "Cats" are small semi-domesticated mammals which possess tails which are somewhat conductive and which are normally held vertically.

(3) A mild, extremely non-lethal electric shock will almost certainly prompt a cat to move.

(4) Many domestic cats are left unattended during the day and are, presumably, bored.

Taking points (1) through (4) together, it would seem a simple matter to create a low-ceilinged cat/dodgem hybrid system providing valuable recreation and exercise for one or more domestic cats.

       Sorry, this makes no sense at all. But the problem may be that I am dead sober at the moment. Will rectify situation and get back to you.

       Pokemeow... ya gotta catgem all.   

       Oh, we LIKE this idea ... not quite as proposed, but differing only in detail, like the voltages and currents employed ...

       For a cat left unattended indoors, the dwelling could be transformed into an obstacle course, making is less boring, perhaps. (Journeys to food could be made into adventures).   

       For a cat with access to any kind of outdoors, there is never any boredom. In blizzards I suppose they don't come home if permitted to follow their natural impulse to go and kill off wildlife, so a catgem might fill those confined hours.   

       For a cat with access to your bird bath, a somewhat more powerful catgem around that might work nicely - especially if he's the one from next door who only visits to yowl at "your" cat at 3 am.
