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 enrichment into the cat's lives. They loved it! Your cat will too!


== Cat changes apps

Bait and switch

I had this app for months. My cats enjoyed playing with it, and my only grumble was that it was way too easy for them to hit the touch point that shut down the game and they did it all the time. Just when they got into it they'd shut it down and I'd have to started it up again.

Still it was entertaining for them and I was happy enough with it to give it maybe a four start rating, until...

A new "update" came out and I downloaded it, and the game opened but I could no longer use it without making a purchase. When yet another update came out I downloaded that too hoping that it would fix the problem. Nice new colors and a bunch of new mice to play with, but I can't even use the original one without a purchase. It's a classic bait and switch. The app may be free but your kitties can't enjoy it unless you buy something. Don't bother.

Cat competition

My boyfriend and I have several cats. We got both iPads going with this game loaded. Brought in both cats to play at the same time! What fun this was to see whose cat could score the highest in a 2 minute timeframe. Not only were the cats having fun but my boyfriend and I were wagering on whose cat was the best player. It was great fun for the cats and us both. Get a challenge going with your is a lot of fun and who knows you may wager a little to make it more fun! Good luck...

Awesome Game for Cats (and toddlers too)

My little guys LOVE to play this game. When my 19 month grandson saw he he wanted to play too! They have loads of fun separate iPads. It is hilarious to watch two cats go at it together. It is a bit of a rip off to have to buy mice, but the one free mouse is definitely worth it... they love the fat purple one too. The squeaks they make when they are "caught" are funny too.
