Mittens playing with the iPad cat app

My cat Mittens playing with my sisters iPad cat app. He keeps reaching underneath the pad to get the mouse when they run out from! Clever. He is such a zen guy! He loves the new cat apps she has. My sister had to tap the mouse to show him to go after it!

I love the way he kept trying to get underneath the pad! Smart boy, adorable video.

May have to get an iPad just for the cat apps.

I told my sister the same thing! I want an iPad just for the apps for my cats! They have spiders and gold fish on the app too!

Cute!!

If I had an iPad though, I wouldn't let my cat play with it. Too expensive to be covered in paw prints and drool.

He loves playing with it. If he hears the app he comes running thru the house to find it. It isnt frustrating to him.

Fun and Games for Cats from the Apple App Store. Under entertainment. Just for the iPad not an iPhone. The same developer has 5 other cat games available also.

Push Paws: "Game For Cats" iPad App Makers Stop Kitties From Buying Add-Ons


By Neal Ungerleider

| July 23, 2012


After four-legged gamers racked up charges on their masters' MasterCards, the makers of iPad apps for pets unleash new controls. Who's LOLing now, cats?


Everything was going purrfect. Until Fluffy found the iTunes store.
The aptly named app development firm Hiccup has finally fixed a major meow mixup: The interface in their free iPad app, "Game For Cats," allowed felines across the world to download premium content add-ons by accident.
Like many iPad gaming firms, Hiccup opted to go for a freemium profit model. Their game comes loaded with a screen emulating a laser pointer, whose darting red dot is irresistible to most cats. But screens displaying other forms of virtual catnip--a mouse on a string, for example--cost 99 cents as DLC (downloadable content). There was only one problem: Early versions of the game had a user interface that made it extremely easy for cats to purchase the DLC with their paws--taking their human guardians (but not their credit cards) completely out of the equation.
T.J. Fuller of Hiccup told gaming industry site Gamasutra that, “We got in a lot of trouble [...] people were accusing us of tricking cats into making purchases. We got a ton of comments on our iTunes page, people accusing us of trying to rip of them off.”
