Bad news for you if you’re human. Cats are winning. That’s right, cats are beating humans in the tech world. It’s not pretty, but I think we humans can make a comeback.
It seems that cats love iPads as much, if not more than humans. Cats enjoy game apps a lot and are becoming quite skilled gamers.
You would think humans have an advantage over felines in gaming, what with our capacity for higher level thinking, but you would be wrong.
Friskies® brand cat food noticed the delight cats have in playing games on iPads and launched three games for cats as iPad apps last year. When those games were successful, Friskies developed even more games so now there is an entire series of cat apps for the iPad. Gamesforcats.com currently has six apps for cats on the iPad.
Don’t have an iPad but want your cat to have fun? No worries, three of the games can be played on your computer.
Recently, Friskies launched a game that pits humans against cats. That’s right, cats used to be content playing these games by themselves, but no more. Now they have an iPad game called You vs. Cat. “You” as in human.
At the Games for Cats site, Friskies maintains a leader board for You vs. Cat, showing the scores for cats vs. the scores for humans. The frightening news is that cats are in the lead. By a wide margin. And their lead is growing.
Humans, we need to band together. Even if you don’t have a cat, you should start playing You vs. Cat now. Practice as much as you can during your free time. Give up your other hobbies until cats are conquered. After humans regain our dominance you can go back to other pastimes, such as playing Angry Birds. But for now, we must overcome cats.
In case your cat hasn’t been saving her pennies, don’t fret. All of the Friskies cat games are free.
Does your cat enjoy playing games on your iPad? Would you hand your iPad over to your pet? Do you think humans will ever gain the lead over cats? Let us know in the Comments section below!
