BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – If you have trouble keeping your pet cat indoors, a new iPad cat app will keep it busy while you’re away.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in Australia designed the interactive iPad app called the Affection Collection, is part of a university's charity project to help pet owners keep their cats entertained.
The app contains three games designed to keep the cat busy.
Unlike any other cat apps, it also has an automatic boredom shuffling system.
"This a game I have designed you can put down so if you go out to work or to the shops; it'll repeatedly shuffle through games so the cat will remain interested," said app designer, Saxon Cameron.
If the cat accidentally taps the app twice and it goes to the main menu, owners do not have to worry, since it automatically defaults back to the game. This is another ploy to keep indoors felines occupied.
"For us it is all about keeping indoor cats stimulated and excited because they have not got that natural environment to go hunting," Saxton said.
