How do I 'webcam' my cat?

 

Every morning, after mealtime, my cat has the intriguing habit of going upstairs into the spare room, and attacking the small carpet, then returns quite happily and goes to sleep, after a labour well done. Each day, the carpet ends up in the most interesting forms, and as the floor under the carpet is very smooth, I wonder whether the cat is practising ski turns! I would like to 'webcam' this using my laptop. But how, as pussy only does this when alone? Is it possible for the laptop camera only to be active when there is movement in the room?

My laptop is Windows 7.

I use Yawcam  http://www.yawcam.com/  and works fine at detection and Video Recording on any movement , it also can notify you through email on alerts.

 

Another you can try is Motion Detection  from http://lifehacker.com/5233052/motion-detection-is-an-effective-dead-simple-security-camera-app.

I havent tried it as of yet.
