I like the game please make more games like this. I have 3 kittens and 1 cat their all sleeping thanks to your games. Keep up the good work at your games. 😁😁😁
Where did the mouse go?
May 28, 2018 ★★★★★ nyCecilia
My Savannah thinks it went under, or maybe inside the iPad! He alternates between digging underneath and trying to bite through. I deducted a star because I don’t want my cat to eat my iPad but may give it back later because it’s not the dev’s fault that my cat is a freak who wants to eat my iPad.

Best cat babysitter ever!!!
Apr 07, 2018 ★★★★★ BethT91
My cat has taken over my ipad! She used to come bug me relentlessly while I was working from home. I stick this app on in the other room and she ends up tiring herself out! She sleeps next to the thing and if I turn the app on she’s running to me wherever I am. Great tool to keep a cat entertained while you are busy!

Very entertaining because the mouse squeaks, and the tail twitch is irresistible. Another cat of mine will just watch, facinated.
Love it but.....
Mar 18, 2018 ★★★★★ Sam-E1029
UPDATE: I gave this 5 stars instead of 3. MAKE SURE YOUR RINGER IS ON!! No need to pay (like I did when sound wasn’t working). Contacted developer and helped with me getting sound with the app. Now my cat just looks at it like “uhh I don’t like the sound”. Of course. Haha still a great app My cat loves this! I played it without buying in but no sounds... so I paid into it... still no sound. Restarted my device. Made sure sounds were up. Still nothing. Wasted money.
Cats hogging my iPad!
Mar 12, 2018 ★★★★★ WendyA-C
My kitties love this game. One comes running when he hears the squeak. Another one demands the game be put on at night when she sees me on my iPad. Thanks for developing this game. It’s easy and cute entertainment for them!

My kitten named Boo loved this game she would swipe at the mouse but sometimes she would bite my iPod 🤣
Highly interesting to cats
Mar 03, 2018 ★★★★★ Christiana-2121
At first she just watched. Then she started putting her paw on a mouse . Next she was trying to bite the phone . Good job, designers.
TIL: Bird beaks aren't conductive
Mar 03, 2018 ★★★★ MsKista
My tiny parrot loves this game but, awww, no matter how hard he tries his beak can't catch the mice tails or make them squeak bc beaks, like fingernails, don't work on touchscreens. Luckily he also doesn't have higher thought process so he doesn't know I make it squeak for him. 👩🏻‍💻👉📱🐀🐦🤪 Super cute game. I can see why cats love it so much!
It all depends on the cat
Feb 22, 2018 ★★★★★ jcharl
Interesting that some people are leaving bad reviews because their cats don’t like this. I have 3 cats and my daughter has 4. What we’ve found is that some cats just aren’t interested or can’t be bothered (they ARE cats, after all!). I have 2 that will play this game for hours if I let them and one who totally ignores it. Same is holding true with daughters cats, 1 isn’t interested and the other 3 that thinks it’s great. I believe it’s a great app for those cats that are attracted to it and not great for those cats that aren’t interested. The app itself is not to blame, it’s just a cat thing!
Cats love this
Feb 12, 2018 ★★★★★ Essenceofclarity1970
My cats absolutely love this game the best out of all the different ones I got. When I’m trying to look at my i pad, one of my cats comes up and starts tapping the screen indicating he wants to play. He does not get tired of it-he is 12 years old and very picky about toys. He will not stop until he gets worn out and tired, then he takes a nap. (Usually he just likes laser pointer, catnip, and feather with bell.) This has been an awesome addition to his play time. My other cat enjoys it too, but he likes running more with laser pointer. My cats are picky and still love this-so glad I got it.

My cat lives this app. Kept her attention for quite a while. Then she wanted to play with her other toy mouse after playing on this app. It really motivated her for a rigorous play session.

My cat is obsessed!
Jan 09, 2018 ★★★★★ legitpaige
Well my cats is obsessed with this game. She LOVES it. I put it on while laying next to me in bed and she bounces around my phone to smack the mouse! It’s sooo cute! I feel bad for turning it off eventually. She could play easily for 30 min straight. Best cat app!!
Entertained kitten
Jan 05, 2018 ★★★★★ hdniki13
I needed my kitten to stop jumping on my laptop so I could finish my work, so I downloaded this app. She spent at least 30 minutes completely entertained. Her high score is over 600. Only flaw is she accidentally called someone, but I think that’s the phone’s programming, not the app... in the end I didn’t get much work done because she was so cute and fun to watch, haha!
Nice but no sound
Jan 01, 2018 ★★★★ @MissDaizy
My cat seems to like it but I worry she’ll get bored fast since the sound isn’t working. Even paid for the premium version and still no sound. I’ve restarted (app and device), made sure my sound is up and not locked, and updated the iOS software. Still no sound... What I do REALLY like is the mice look like real toys. Other similar apps use more silhouette graphics that don’t seem to interest my cat at all. Overall, good app with one big bug.
Genius app!
Dec 31, 2017 ★★★★★ Ryghann
This is a must have if you are a cat lover! This app is awesome and my cat adores it❤️I’m really grateful that it was created. One of my cats toys got ruined by another of our cats and I wanted a substitute till I could make a trip to the store. As soon as I turned it on all the cats gathered around and took turns playing. My cat will meow at me when I’m on my phone and she wants to play it. So get it and watch the adorable ness! There’s a bunch of mice that rotate thru.my cats favorite is the fluffy white one❤️ Keep up the good work!
Happy cat!
Dec 19, 2017 ★★★★★ Athena's Child
My cat has a very strong hunting instinct and we keep her indoors, so this app allows her to "hunt" without being outside. Doesn't do much to burn calories but it is stimulating for her.
Very engaging

Best Game Ever! Cats LOVE !
Mar 25, 2017 ★★★★★ Sissygirll
I purchased The Mouse For Cats App yesterday. I have Four 6 month old Kitty Kats and they each LOVE this game. I've had to recharge my iPad already because they NEVER lose interest. I've only left one other review before and it was not a good one but it was honest. This App entertains my cats for hours. BTW, Each of their scores improve each time they play the game. This is definitely because the game continues to challenge them. And please no updates. You people ALWAYS mess up a good thing when you think it should be tweaked. It's perfect like it is. Thanks for hours of fun. I agree that if your feline is not interested in any type of game please don't force the issue. They're well known for their stubbornness and if they're not hyped about a game there's just no forcing ANY issue with a cat.

This is really an amazing and super well thought out game for cats but it has taken over my life. I can no longer work in peace because as soon as I pick up my iPad pro my cat wont leave me alone until she has at least played 30 minutes of this game. She has figured out how to close my apps now. Her understanding of electronic devices has surpassed all expectations. I now need to sit at my desktop computer and work and can no longer enjoy a lazy day in bed working. Thank you for making my cat happy and ruining my life.

My two cats love this game! They recognize the squeeking sound after playing iT only once. They like to watch the mouse for a while before attacking it.. sometimes brutaly. The one cat hits it, the other bites it.
De kat is hier dol op
Mar 01, 2017 ★★★★★ Jms.b
En ik wordt er dol van. Hij probeerde al mijn iPad te slopen om die muis te pakken te krijgen. Hij probeert inmiddels ook zelf het spel aan te zetten. Staat als een geroutineerde gebruiker op het scherm te tikken. Op een dag gaat hen dat lukken denk ik.
Beste spel voor katten

Ik heb het spel gedownload indien ik al vele katten games heb geprobeerd zonder succes. Toen ik op start gedrukt heb, gelijk op de grond gezet en aan mijn katten gegeven!

My 1 year old Bengal loves this game more than others I’ve tried. She loves the random types, realistic movements and squeaky noises (or maybe that’s just me) — they even look like (the mice) are breathing! LOL Endless fun! Best cat toy in the App Store. Well worth it!

Freaked my cat out!
Jul 17, 2016 ★★★★ Catgirl1986
Definitely better for some cats than others! I put it on my iPad and showed my big alpha male cat. He hissed at it then ran around the room attacking everything! He was convinced something was in the room, really freaked him out! My other, more docile and playful cat was calmer about it but claws on the screen are a big problem. The game works in the sense that cats really do think it's real but use your judgement as to whether that's a good thing for your cat!
Hours of amusement!
Jan 24, 2016 ★★★★★ LouBeccaBee
I put this on my iPad and one of our cats took a shining. She hit the mouse 30 times and was still interested in playing. This definitely works for some cats, unfortunately our other 3 weren't at all interested.

Great game for my two little kittens, they will play with this for hours if they could! Only problem is they love it that much they physically stalk, attack and bite/scratch at my phone repeatedly!! So if u have an older phone u don't mind getting scratched/chewed up then it's great fun for them!
