Cool concept but when I purchased it, the sound does not function. Please help.
7 month old kitten loves this game! Mar 10, 2019 ★★★★★ TMcTX19
We recently adopted a young cat who is apparently from Feline Gen Z - she is very interested in all things on all screens. I downloaded this for her today on my old iPad 4th generation, and it's such a success that I upgraded it within 10 minutes. Digi-kitty-approved!
Has deteriorated over time Mar 09, 2019 ★★ Katieinalex
This used to be really fun for my cats but recently, the sound has disappeared. No squeak at all. Reinstalled. Nothing. They’re no longer interested in playing this game.
Unusable on iPhone SE Mar 03, 2019 ★ AbbyJaneway
The ads cover over 1/3rd of my screen, my cat can't play this game without tapping on the ad. Very disappointing.
Ramps up then calms down, training aid Mar 01, 2019 ★★★★★ Dia S
This is the second cat app I've downloaded. I don't have much for comparison but I can say the Purina app did nothing for my 10 year old cat,but this one she likes to interact with. It took her a few viewings before she started to tap the screen but she was interested from the start. Now whenever I pull out my tablet she starts tapping the screen as if asking me to turn on the mouse. The added benefit is that she has anxiety around my new dog, but this app helps to distract her when he is close. She gets very hyped during the game but calms down a few minutes after I take it away. After that she is in a relaxed state and is better able to tolerate my dog's presence.
My cats love it Feb 24, 2019 ★★★★★ frustrated in ithaca
The only problem is that one of them gets overexcited and moves the screen to something else, at which point they can’t play anymore. When I hear the squeaking has stopped, I go fix the iPad and they start again. I’m using the free version. Great use for my old iPad.
MY CAT IS OBSESSED Feb 22, 2019 ★★★★★ mellmg
This is the best game for my playful indoor cat, Moo. She loves to play with little toys and also loves bringing me her toys as offerings. She is truly the sweetest. I just recently bought this iPad and wanted to show her a whole new world where she could remain engaged, as she is very playful and loves toys. Thank you for creating this app... Moo is currently watching my iPad as she cannot wait to go back and play some more!
My kitten loves this! Feb 20, 2019 ★★★★★ Divimom
These kids and their technology! I have a 7wk old kitten that loves this first day she watched it. 2nd time she made it to level 8! This cat looks at phone screens, watches TV and my computer screen. Who knew?? Great app!!

No sound on app... Jan 28, 2019 ★★★ clfoerster
I downloaded the app on my husband IPad Air 1. I even paid for the extra stuff, but there is no sound☹️
My cat, Ramona, loves this! Jan 17, 2019 ★★★★★ RamonaTheRussianBlue
She’ll sit by my iPad and paw at the “mice” with her paws. My cat is pretty picky about toys, so if you have a finicky feline like my cat, I definitely recommend getting this app for them- you WON’T regret it.
Great useful app Jan 13, 2019 ★★★★★ Kellen jmsd 1998
So we were going on a trip and we brought both of our cats my cat hates the car but one blanket a breathable cardboard box one charger one iPad kept my cat anxiety free he played with the game the hole ride it was 7 hours but Better than my sweet cat from getting anxiety, kept him from stressing, and left him occupied so yeah get this for long car trips when u bring cats and this app will save u one less stressed cat !!!
My cat loves this game! Jan 13, 2019 ★★★★★ cat_lady_wannabe
I got this game for my cat and she absolutely loves it! She practically begs to play it. Whenever I have my iPad out she’s right there trying to nose her way in.
This app and the dev are a joke Dec 26, 2018 ★ Alittlebitofhenry
This app is trash, doesn’t unlock and the ‘dev’ support is some snarky unprofessional clown. Do not waste your money or time with this app or the joker who made it.
👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Dec 23, 2018 ★★★★★ Amazing awesome fantastic app
My cat literally tried to bite the corner of my phone and carry it away with him😹😸
A wonderful diversion for bored cats! Dec 19, 2018 ★★★★★ Cat Café
I work at a Cat Café. Wonderful concept! We have had a lot of adoptions. But it happens, times when we have no visitors. The kitties get bored, even with their favorite toys and activities. Restlessness and a little naughtiness can ensue. All I have to do is load this app, put it on the floor, and tap it once so it squeaks and the cats come running! Not all cats are interested, but some are secret players... they wait until no one is watching and do a little tapping of their own! Excellent programming, beautiful colors. So simple and so perfect!
My 10 mths old kitties live this game! Dec 11, 2018 ★★★★★ Unangrybird
Keeps them occupied and happy.
Was charged and never got the sound Dec 10, 2018 ★ A.Fenty
I bought the sound in this app for $2.99 I was charged and Could not hear the sounds. Volume is fine, tried reinstalling even turned my phone off and back on...NOTHING I want my money back
She loves it! Dec 10, 2018 ★★★★★ KakesTheFarmer
My cat Blueberries is not very active. But she LOVES this game!
I play it with her daily now. I think this is a good app for cats who love to play. Bravo!
Great entertainment for my cat! Dec 08, 2018 ★★★★★ CrazyCatLoverLOl
At first my cat didn’t really get the meaning of the game, but then a few minutes into it she had a couple hundred hits! I think you should also do a string version on it, though. The string would slide on the screen so the cat would try to get it! Thanks!
Huge fans Nov 29, 2018 ★★★★★ XXh3ll0xkittyXX
My kitten loves this. Now if I even turn it on from across the house, she comes bounding out to watch the little mouse. She never gets tired of it! Thanks for such a great app!
My cats love this Nov 24, 2018 ★★★★★ dreibcats
It’s a fairly simple app, but my cats absolutely love it. I downloaded several cat apps, but they clearly prefer this one. They will play for hours, and one of them will try to open my iPad cover to see if the mouse is out. Highly recommended.
My cat loves it! Nov 19, 2018 ★★★★★ chembioperson
My cat is almost addicted to this app actually begging for my phone at times. The more times they hit the phone the more the mouse changes and seems to speed up a bit. I do suggest a screen protector and a large flat surface like a bed when you use the app. I have tried other cat apps and by far this is her favorite!
Nope Nov 17, 2018 ★ Jayone666
My 3 cats didn’t even care for it so bye bye it is for this app since it wasn’t really all that interesting for them.
Great app! Nov 13, 2018 ★★★★★ If I don't like it I hate it!
I have two cats and tried this game out on one of them since she didn’t seem very interested in the toy I had for her and at first I thought it was a loss cause but then I noticed her eyes following the mouse so I thought she might attack and she did. She started to bite it at first then started hitting it with her paw until she gave up on figuring out how it worked and left. I placed my phone in front of my other cat and she just took a glance at it then walked away, uninterested. She’s never been into playing so I didn’t expect her to anyways. Still an amazing app for cats who enjoy playing!
Gets My Kittens Ready For Bed Oct 27, 2018 ★★★★★ NancyG4695
My kittens love this game and are always trying to commandeer my iPad to play. Now they've learned how to change the screens I'm on. Anyway, Natasha has gotten so rowdy while playing that she and the iPad have fallen off my bed. Boris is more timid and has eased into playing but never stops watching the mouse. They finally get so tired they just sit and watch the mouse run around. After a while, both doze off and lights out! I love it as much as they do because it keeps them from attacking my feet under the covers.

My cats love this game. They even come to me and take over my tablet. It's fun. The videos I have of my grand son and my cats playing it together are priceless.
Just leave it on the floor Oct 15, 2018 ★★★★★ lightning bort
If your cat looks at you and back at it and at you again etc.. Just leave it on the floor and let them find it.
So much fun! Sep 30, 2018 ★★★★★ Eaustin494
My cat loves this! He will not play with regular toys but turn this on and he just can’t walk away from it. He does get very confused when it goes to the edge of the screen. Hours of fun for me and him.
Add in way Sep 24, 2018 ★ hdhdjehdbdbe

Great app! Sep 21, 2018 ★★★★★ CatTheGraey
My cat LOVES this app. It keeps him entertained for at least three hours a day. He even reaches under the iPad trying to get the mouse! Really good app for cats, I recommend it.

My kittens love it
My cats adore this!!!! Aug 25, 2018 ★★★★★ Catgrl106
Holy moly my cats like this game. I set it up, and they’re good to go for 15-20 minutes of play, purring like a chainsaw. Theoretically, they would probably play with it longer than that, but I noticed if I let them play too long at a time, they start chewing on my tablet in an attempt to get at the mice 😹
Winner!! Aug 24, 2018 ★★★★★ DNcingffol
My younger cat LOVES playing this game! And the older one loves watching the younger one play.
Ruby got it, Finally Aug 19, 2018 ★★★★★ WizzyToe
When Ruby was two months old, she was not interested and she couldn’t understand it. Now, at six months old, she has played this game with me and understands how it works until she gets tired. LOL I had to get this app because she was trying to get my straws out of my glasses while I was drinking my water and she won’t listen to me to get her to. Needless to say that I am quadriplegic and I cannot physically put her down or spray her with water. 🤨
Cat is obsessed! Aug 19, 2018 ★★★★★ ravingdaving1275
My cat LOVES this game! I’ve tried a lot of the cat-specific games on the app store and this is the only one he reacts to! He plays for around 15 minutes before getting tired which is way more than he plays with his other toys. His obsession has even gotten to the point where if he sees the iPad or anything that slightly resembles the iPad he’ll tap on it to let us know he wants to play! Now, I’m not saying everyone will have the success that I did with this game, but with how much my cat likes it, I’d say it’s definitely worth checking out!
My Cat’s LOVED It!!😺 Aug 18, 2018 ★★★★★ ChloeIsabella2184
Both of my cats LOVED this app, and it kept them busy for hours!😂 I was a little skeptical at first because I thought my iPad wasn’t going to pick up their paw pads, but it worked perfectly! The mice moved around and made noise when my cats touched them! Their nails also didn’t do any damage to my iPad at all! One of my cats is also very lazy and fat and she even enjoyed this game! If you are looking for a game to keep your furry friends entertained, i really recommend this app!🐱
This is weird Aug 01, 2018 ★★★★★ kool-aid gamer
This is weird but i LOVE his game. As I say I’m a cat on the inside! :) I have a cat... and I call her sister/sis lol.
Cat LOVES This Jul 28, 2018 ★★★★★ Meowzer252
One of my four cats goes crazy for this game and has taken to sitting next to me each time I use the iPad, waiting for her turn. Another cat has just discovered this game and seems interested if a little confused (he’s very tactile). The other two don’t really care, but they’re cats, so I expect that. For the ones who like it, this game is AWESOME.
The sound on this app no longer works Jul 27, 2018 ★ ole_u
My kitten loves this game. The sound stopped working so I thought it meant that in order to keep sound I would need to purchase the app so I did. Still no sound!!
All my other apps work fine ! This needs to be fixed and refund my money . Otherwise this would have 5 stars
In response to the developers snarky response. It STILL has problems intermittently . Clearly there is an issue with the app itself they haven’t resolved. All my other apps with noise work just fine. Just fix it instead of getting mad that customers are complaining. It’s a fun app, my cat loves it when it works right.
Great little game Jul 27, 2018 ★★★★★ I<3sports
Let me just say, I’ve downloaded a lot of games for my (10 year old) bud over the years and he just doesn’t honestly care. I saw this one and figured why not? He LOVES it! I can’t believe it! Looks like this one is a keeper!
Cats love it Feb 08, 2019 ★★★ Charmeddigitalchick
My cats are absolutely addicted to this game! Everytime i use my ipad, they immediately start smacking the screen.
The only issue i have is that even though i paid for this app and downloaded it on several devices, it keeps asking me to repurchase it. That needs to be fixed.
I would give this five stars if it allowed me to download the unlocked version without having to pay for it again.
Amazing Jan 22, 2019 ★★★★★ P🥔tat🥔 man

My cat is addicted to this game Mar 25, 2018 ★★★★★ Mrs.Hamman
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.

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.

my cat never usually plays with apps and games i’ve tried countless times to try to get her to play with one, but with this one she was staring at it for a good 10 minutes and tried to hit the mouse a few times!
No squeak Aug 19, 2018 ★★★ Seren-:)
The mice aren’t making any noise so my cat isn’t really interested. He’s a Bengal and loves the YouTube videos with squeaky mice but without the noise it doesn’t get his attention
Best for cats: Purrr fun Jun 14, 2018 ★★★★★ The Lady Devourah
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!
This is really good May 14, 2018 ★★★★★ Luv_your_lip_gloss

My cat has now stolen my iPad May 13, 2018 ★★★★★ Foxyroadie
I was a bit unconvinced when I first got this but straight away - and still, even after a month - my cat loves this game. He sits and watches it for ages. Highly recommended, though not if you’re not keen on giving your own iPad to your cat..!

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 Jan 18, 2016 ★★★★★ Honeybun58
My cat loves it and plays for ages. Put it on a tablet so the screen is bigger. Beware of cats scratching and trying to eat the mouse!
U need a phone u don't mind getting attacked! Oct 19, 2015 ★★★★★ Buddy and Sox
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!
