Good Distraction, Doesn’t Last

This is a good distracting game for my kitten in the morning or when I need her to wind down.

Sometimes my kitten gets very hyper and will play bite a lot when I’m sleepy in bed or waking up and I need something for her to be entertained by that isn’t me.

This is a great distraction to use while getting ready for work, reading or laying in bed or while you need to do household chores and can’t play with your kitty but want to them to play with something to use up some of that extra energy.

My kitty really does play the game, and even if she doesn’t play, I can tell she is hyper focused on watching the laser.

My main issue with the game is that it does NOT last long enough and you have to keep pressing the button “continue playing.” Since a cat might not always touch the screen and might just want to watch it, they should make the game last at least 2-4 minutes longer.

I definitely wouldn’t recommend purchasing the mice until you know if your kitten or cat will be entertained by the game.

I actually purchased one mice since I know my kitten likes it but I wouldn’t give anymore until they make improvements to the game.

Good distraction, just doesn’t last long enough.

Eh, she likes the window light better.

My cat loves laser pointers and light reflections from the window however she couldn’t care less about this. Maybe because she wants to pounce on the light and instinctively knows the iPad is not to be pounced on or hates the glass feeling. She lightly touched it once. But I’ve tried on different occasions, once she looked at it then proceeded to play with the non moving light from the window. Typical cat liking the cheapest thing. Lol

I would try the mice options but I’m not paying when I don’t even know if she’ll like it. Plus I was awarded this game from a cat food reward, why did I only get the free version? Minus 3 stars for wasting my reward points.

Bait and switch

I had this app for months. My cats enjoyed playing with it, and my only grumble was that it was way too easy for them to hit the touch point that shut down the game and they did it all the time. Just when they got into it they'd shut it down and I'd have to started it up again.

Still it was entertaining for them and I was happy enough with it to give it maybe a four start rating, until...

A new "update" came out and I downloaded it, and the game opened but I could no longer use it without making a purchase. When yet another update came out I downloaded that too hoping that it would fix the problem. Nice new colors and a bunch of new mice to play with, but I can't even use the original one without a purchase. It's a classic bait and switch. The app may be free but your kitties can't enjoy it unless you buy something. Don't bother.
