Yep, it's true. Now there's an iPad app for cats.
While little creativity was put into the name, simply titled "iPad Game for Cats,"
this app is pretty clever. There are two levels; a laser, which is free, and a more graphically appealing mousetrap for $1.99. I didn't spring for the mousetrap level, so I can't comment on it. It's hard for me to justify buying apps for myself, let alone my cat.
Still, the laser level is pretty neat. It works the same as any old laser pointer that cats go bonkers for, only it does the work for you. Plus, it's on the iPad, so it looks like your cat is a little human playing with technology. The equation is simple: Animals + Technology = Hilarious-ness.
Of course, Olive loved it. Warning: I would not let a cat near
an iPad with bare nails. Olive is currently rocking her pink Soft Paws--
essentially press-on nails for cats that serve as an alternative to declawing--
making it safe for her to touch the screen.
Check out the video above to see Olive in action. The verdict? It's a winner; and since cats love the free laser, the mousetrap level is pretty much a money-trap. Don't get caught.
