Back in May we were reporting that if you have a cat and an iPad, you can show your pet a good time by getting the three iPad games that Friskies rolled out. If you missed that announcement, here’s a quick look the three games released by Friskies, the brand of cat food owned by Nestlé Purina PetCare Company, a subsidiary of Nestlé.

Cat Fishing – a gold fish swims around the monitor; when the cat taps the fish, it scores one point. When the cat catches ten fish, it wins the game. Get the game from the App Store by clicking here; play it in the browser by clicking here.


Tasty Treasures Hunt – various treats (spinning turkeys, fish, chickens and wedges of cheese) fly around the monitor and disappear when tapped upon. The game ends when the cat catches 8 treats. Get the game from the App Store by clicking here; play it in the browser by clicking here.

Party Mix-up
– various treats fly around the monitor; they break off into more treats when tapped upon. There are 5 rounds in this game, rounds that increase in speed and difficulty. A round ends when the cat catches 5 treats. Get the game from the App Store by clicking here; play it in the browser by clicking here.

All three games presented above are featured on A fourth game is featured on the site; JitterBug. By playing this game your cat can practice catching little bugs.

That’s all very nice if you have a cat and if you’re there to enjoy its company. But what if you can’t have a cat because you’re allergic, or because you don’t afford one yet, or because your parents/wife/girlfriend are against you getting a cat? Or what if you’re away on a trip or on business and you miss your cat. This is where the Alex Komarov-developed app Kitty! comes in. What it does is it puts a virtual cat on your iPad. You can interact with the cat and it will interact with you.

“Looking for a little relaxation? Cuddle up with Kitty! and let his soothing purrs de-stress you. Always have the comfort of a cat you can pet wherever you go,” says the app’s official description. “This cute, finicky feline can be lovable one moment, defiant the next, depending on how you interact with him. There’s no telling what your kitty will do! Pet, pester, and play with him in different ways to see how he’ll react,” it continues.

If you would like to get Kitty! for iPad, you can purchase it from the App Store for $4.99. For additional information on the app visit
