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!

How is this getting such good ratings?

I don’t get it. There appear to be two games, the mouse and the laser pointer. The mouse side doesn’t do anything at all except try to rack up additional $$ for no benefit. I never intentionally agreed to any in-game purchase, but got a $2.99 cent charge the other day. So I figured, if I am paying $3 I should at least see what I got for it. But there’s nothing. You touch the screen one time and the mouse gets slammed in the stupid mouse trap and to get it out you have to pay more money. $3 per 1/3 of a second of game is not exactly a good value. I tried clinking on the “restore previous purchase” button but the stupid cat head just spins and spins and spins saying “loading” for eternity. I’ve never seen such a ridiculous waste of money before in my life. I got absolutely nothing for a $3 purchase that a child at a family gathering apparently made when I wasn’t looking. Why do people like this. If the game lasts less than a second, it can’t occupy a cat for long… Perhaps I just got a defective copy? I don’t know, but I sure want my money back.


I got this app for my cats, obviously. Needless to say one of my cats loved to watch it, the other loves to smack the laser lol.

As other posters have said, once you open the app it will have a pop-up to purchase something for $1.99 and asks you to put in your apple password. I guess the others were to unobservant to realize and just sped through and ended up buying it. All you have to do is hit cancel and it closes the pop-up without charging you and you can get on with your game.

My cats really enjoyed the laser, which is great cause my arm gets tired playing with our real laser for hours. (:

I got this game wile ago for my cats it was free

I got this game for my cat Starla when she was a kitten when I first got her and it used to be free and now I read reviews and it says it. It's money idk if it dose. Because I deleted this game a long time ago and re got it because my cat Starla had a kitten and so I got it again and then he'd idiot like it so i deleted it and then I got it again because my cat Starla I think was bored like I was so I got it for her again and it was free still since I had it but I read reviews because the mouse trap thingy and I seen that somebody paid for this app I am telling you I think it's stupid that they make you pay for a app that you cat dose not likenot
