Patent for a method to train a cat with a laser pointer

The US patent system is sometimes difficult to explain to applicants that are not from the US, so I am going to start a series of difficult questions that I have received when speaking with our clients.

Question 1: "Why can one patent a method for exercising a cat with a laser pointer in the USA, but not anywhere else?" He meant this granted US patent.
