Calling all kitties to the iPad!Posted: November 4, 2011
Calling all kitties to the iPad! You see them on youtube playing with drawing apps but there has been a jump in apps built specifically for the kitties out there. Dogs have always had the bigger toy selection at the pet stores but with the iPad cat lovers have discovered that a new way to play with their beloved cats. And it’s a growing section in the app store and here are a few that my cats really like. So stop reading the news on your iPad and lets get to playing.
Several years ago the song Cat Jingle Bells was fun to play because it would confuse your cat and sometimes they would meow back. Well the Classic Cat Piano iPad app is a a new way to play meow like songs for your cat. The piano keyboard has a nice double layer of keys that when pressed meows belt out. This can call your cat to you no matter where they are in the house. It peaks their curiosity and will watch you play and in some cases have them playing with the keys creating their own kitty music. Fun and entertaining to both cat and owners alike.
Another fun cat toy on the iPad app is simply called Cat Toy. This iPad app has several charters or toys for your curious cat. With a mouse, rat, spider and a ping pong ball to choose from, this app has a lot to offer. The charters run around and when your cat paws the charter it reacts like they have caught it but wiggles out of their paw. Another fun section to this app is the main screen title when pressed has a selection of different sounds that my cat finds almost as in trigging as the toys themselves.
Sophie the Circus Cat is another app with cat-appeal. This app has three sections, one is a cute fun story about a cat with big kitty dreams, the next section has recipes and activity ideas for you and your cat. The recipes are easy to follow and my cat really liked the kitty crackers I made for them. The last section is a cat toy that you can control with buttons for fun noises that will cause any cat to be curious. When your cat paws on the little mouse or spider it responds with wiggle movements and sounds. With a warn story and great activity ideas this app would make a great christmas gift for your furry kitty friends.
So the next time you visit the iTunes app store download some great fun for your furry friends.
