Be a virtual cat owner
Indulge your inner kitten-lover with these fluffy games.
Cat owners, just like their furry companions, come in all varieties. However, we’re seeing a newer breed of feline fancier: the kind that doesn’t own one. Whether it be work schedules, allergies or a building’s “no pets” policy, some find it more convenient to get their feline fix with virtual pets.
If you’re like them, maybe these games will interest you. You’ll get your cat, even though it’s a virtual one, but it’s one you can call your own.
Little Kitten – My Favorite Cat is too darn cute
It’s no surprise that this game, designed initially for kids, has adults fascinated as well. Crumbs the kitten hooks us with wide-eyed stares, seeks out a good pat, then invites you to play. Get him to jump on the bed, play hide and seek and leap into cat-and-mouse games with you. Paint on the easel with his pawprints, even mix up custom paint colours, and save your creations to your Photos. Don’t forget to feed the kitty regularly! You’ll be rewarded when you hear the purring as your sleepy cat curls up for a snooze.
Something to try: Blow into the mic to see how the kitten’s fur reacts!

Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector, because one kitty is never enough
Japan’s answer to crazy-cat-lady-level fandom, Neko Atsume lets you collect cats – as long as you cater to each one’s predilections.
First, you go to the store, buy food and special cat toys, then bring your purchases to your yard and wait. Soon you’ll get a visit from many different guests. Snowball, Lady Meow and Tabby Cat are just three kittens of 96! Each new guest gets a separate page in your Catbook, but can you collect the full set?
Fittingly, some cats are fickle and require special treatment; perhaps they only play with balls of a certain colour or only eat sashimi. This game doesn’t let you rest on your laurels; ignored cats will swish their tails and leave the yard in search of a more attentive owner.
Something to try: The more guests, the more fish you will earn playing Neko Atsume and you will definitely need them to replenish pet supplies, buy more meow-toys or at least improve the yard.

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Game Ever is terribly good
Are all cats cute? Not necessarily, and this game is the proof. The original, real Grumpy Cat, born in Arizona, became an Internet celebrity back in 2012 when her photo was posted on Reddit. Once she got noticed she had a rapid rise to celebrity status with millions of YouTube views. A slew of invitations to make commercials and memorabilia ensued, making that unforgettably grumpy face a household meme.
Now Grumpy has several ridiculous mini games for you. Beat the mice on the head, catch the red dot, get the cat into the box or jump from platform to platform to gain fish of the cat’s size. For completed tasks you’ll get gold coins, which you can spend on cat stickers that you can share with other Grumpy Cat-loving friends.
Something to try: Shake your Grumpy Cat stickers to find hidden coins.

KleptoCats will steal your heart
In spite of your sparsely decorated, perhaps shabby apartment, you’ve taken in a cat. It has some needs, so you cheer up little fluffy with some pats, some snacks and a scrub in the bath. And so, very pleased with itself and with you, the cat goes for a walk. He later returns with... gifts. An alarm clock. A dream catcher. A vase. What’s happening? Where did all these gifts come from? You, of course, really need to decorate, but at what cost? Take care of the cat, and enjoy some unexpected story turns.
Something to try: While your kitty is out on the prowl, tap the Play button to try a game that can earn you some extra coins.
