Which is why we’ve found you 5 unmissable cat apps – some for you, and some for puss. Providing you trust them with your phone, of course (Gadgette is not responsible for scratched, bitten or half-eaten tech!).
5. Pocket Pond
Pocket Pond isn’t technically a cat app – it’s actually a game in which you breed, raise and play with your own selection of fish. But because the app looks like a real pond, with fish moving across rippling waters, there are hours of fish batting fun available for your kitty.
4. Crazy Cat
As the name suggests, Crazy Cat is a game for cats. It provides your cat with a number of different animated creatures to chase and bat across the screen – and the faster the animal is moving when your cat hits it, the higher the score. If you have more than one cat, you’re pretty much obliged to have a tournament.
Free on Android, though similar apps are available for iOS.
3. RSPCA My Pet
The RSPCA app covers pet health, gives owners care tips and also provides wider information on animal safety, the RSPCA’s work and how to contact them. It’s a great resource for pet owners and supporters of the RSPCA.
Free on iOS.
As you’d expect from the name, this is basically Snapchat for cats. A red dot whizzes around the screen, and your cat just has to catch it – as soon as they touch it, the front-facing camera fires and takes a cat selfie. Which you can then filter and share on social media, obvs.
Free on Android.
