Excellent but mouse is too frequent for my cat

My cat is very interested in this app initially but she seems to become bored because the mouse is too often visible, and she ends up just staring but not attacking. If possible, an option / slider setting to make the mouse hide for longer off-screen and take more time to reappear would be perfect for her. Ideally the mouse would be able to occasionally hide for even a few minutes at a time, since that’s the style of play my cat seems to enjoy with real toys. (Waiting and ambushing). This way I could leave the app on for long periods of time without her getting bored of it and finding it too predictable. Another idea could be a mode where the screen goes black after ~10 minutes but can be reactivated by a tap. That way my cat can turn it on when she wants it but it can be blank when she’s not interested (this way she doesn’t get bored of it seeing it running all the time and stops caring). She already knows to tap her physical toys when she wants to play so I’m sure she would learn that tapping the iPad will allow her to play if I leave it running on the floor for her. I know development takes time and labor but I would gladly pay even more for these extra features so that I can tailor the game to my cat’s personality. Thank you!

Our Kitties love this, but now I have no ipad

Have tried similar apps which bored our girls, but they give Mouse for Cats (‘MFC’) a 5 Paw Rating. Every time I turn on the ipad one of our girls expects to play MFC. Has been a great deterrent to our moody girl - when she starts bullying her sister we turn it on MFC and she’s mesmerized.
Love that it plays for a long time, & doesn’t shut down, as our oldest is a voyeur who loves to sit and watch. Wish it didn’t reset to first level after a minute, as she rarely makes it to multi mini mice chase (which she loves) going at her own slow pace. She’d get there if had more time.
Am shopping for a new ipad, so don’t have to negotiate with the cats to use mine lol
Update: our oldest girl actually wakes me up in the morning, as she knows she gets to play MFC once she eats. Her winter aggression towards her sister, mostly from boredom, as greatly diminished too. Nice to see her so happy. Changing review from 4 to 5 stars :)

Developer Response ,

Thank you ;) We have plan to let you start mini games from the main screen, actually cat must hit 100x for each mini-game and this could be frustrating for cats observing screen more than hitting just because of no-activity score reset ;)
...All belongs to cats, great you know it and shopping for a new iPad :)))

Love this! Pls read!

I heard about these kind of apps from my friends and I wanted to try it! I was very skeptical because I thought my two cats would not be interested. I downloaded the app on my iPad and try to show it to my cats. At first they didn’t care, but I left my iPad alone sitting on the rug in the middle of the living room. They went crazy! One of them would watch the mouse roam around the screen and my other cat would go right in and try to bat and bite it. It is a very simple app. A colorful mouse roams around the iPad screen, after 100 hits from your cat a mini-game will play. Usually the mini-game is multiple small mice running across the screen or something similar. If the cat doesn’t hit the mice in the mini-game the app will go back to the normal mouse roaming around the screen. Anyways it is so funny to see how the cats interact with it. 100% recommend!

Developer Response ,

Thank you. Every cat is different and nobody knows if his cat will play or not. My new catman absolutely ignore the game or any screen at all, he does follow laser on the ground but he requesting fast and long moves, he loves to run and catch. If i try moves on small area he just watching and losing interest in while. I did not show him iPad until his 1 year, because kittens will always play and i wished to have older cat who does not know digital entertainment :) Now i have challenge, trying to tune app with new settings to attract him...
