PAW ME Avail­able: For Ap­ple and An­droid

Price: Free

Do your cats have a case of sib­ling ri­valry? Set­tle the score with this on­line, mul­ti­player game for cats (and their hu­mans)! With four dif­fer­ent game modes— sin­gle player, cat vs. cat, hu­man vs. cat, and hu­man vs. hu­man—ev­ery­one can get in on the fun. The dig­i­tal prey (choose from a mouse, bird, laser, and more) have re­al­is­tic move­ments and sounds to tempt even the most stand­off­ish of fe­line play­ers. And you can even cus­tomize the game set­tings to best suit your cat’s in­ter­ests. My cat Ban­dito loved the rain­bow mouse so much that he drooled all over the screen!

CAT FISH­ING 2 Avail­able: For Ap­ple and An­droid

Price: Free

Give your gold­fish a break from hun­gry fe­line eyes with this easy to play fish­ing game for cats. Cats love stalk­ing the brightly coloured fish as they “swim” across the screen, as well as the re­al­is­tic rip­ples, bub­bles, and sounds. If your cats do lose in­ter­est, the game lets out a “meow” that is sure to cap­ture their at­ten­tion. My boys Harry and Ban­dito, while en­thralled, pre­ferred watch­ing to fish­ing but if your cat is more into ac­tively try­ing to catch the fish, be­ware the back but­ton! It’s easy for over ex­cited fisher- cats to ac­ci­den­tally close the game.

PAINTS FOR CATS Avail­able: For Ap­ple (iPad)

Price: $1.99

Is your cat the next Paw- casso? With this fun app you can put your cat’s artis­tic prow­ess to the test! The Paint for Cats app fea­tures a mouse with an en­tic­ingly twitchy tail scam­per­ing around the screen. Wher­ever a paw lands, paint ap­pears! Your cat can cre­ate a true mas­ter­piece just by bat­ting at the mouse on the screen, caus­ing a smear, spot or splash to ap­pear. My cat Harry, a true artist, en­joyed paint­ing but ig­nored the mouse. The best part is, af­ter play­time is over, you can share your cat’s art on so­cial me­dia or print it out and stick it on the fridge like the proud pet-par­ent you are.
