Mews and Nips: Canadian Humane Society Introduces iPads for Cats Program

Cats in the care of the Regina Humane Society in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan now enjoy playing interactive games on their iPads. The games, designed for cats, allow cats to move fish, mice or insects with their paws. ““Cats love to hunt and stalk things, and what these programs do is they give the cats the opportunity to do that on the iPads,” the humane society’s executive director, Lisa Koch, told the CBC. The games allow cats to exercise their hunting instinct and are just one method the shelter uses to keep cats happy and stress-free. For more on this story, visit the Huffington Post.

    I dowloaded the cat games on my ipad once. Only one cat was interested in it and only for a short while.
