The World's Best Video Game for Cats! ** Mouse level on sale for a limited time **

Having trouble pausing the game? Having trouble with sound? See below.

Chase a laser! Chase a mouse! See how many points your cat can rack up.

= NOTE: The laser level is free to play as long as you like. However, the mouse level is an in-app-purchase! We are sorry for any confusion on this. =

This crazy fast action packed game will keep your cat (and your guests) entertained for hours.

The traditional laser pointer: everyone loves letting their cat chase a laser pointer, right? Well now you can keep your cat entertained without having to exert any effort! Game for Cats will pick random paths that keep your cat's attention.

Free the mouse and then you can chase it! Cat's love this adorable little mouse. He doesn't mind either. But don't take my word for it, let me let him say something:

"Squeak squaker squeak squeakum squeak!" - Mr. Mouse

We brought our game the cat shelter to bring some joy into the orphaned cat's lives. Guess what? They loved it! Your cat will too!

Fun for everyone

It's funny to watch my cat following the little dot on the screen with her head. She still hasn't figured out how to catch the dot. Instead of hitting the screen with her paw, she scoops at the screen its quite funny. The only bad thing is that my cat looses interest with the game when the dot goes off the screen or goes too fast. All in all, it's a fun game to play even for me.


My cat goes crazy for the mouse game! It's really been worth the tiny fee, because he actually gets excited now when he sees my iPad out and wants a turn. I get it out when he has too much energy and is being naughty from boredom. Make sure you have a screen protector, the claws tend to come out =^_^=

Grate app

All my cats love to play this app on my ipad i can sit and do work and just let them play for hours it's well worth getting and I even paid fro the extra leve that they love.
