Purina Friskies has launched Happy Wings, a game designed for cats, where the feline companions can try to capture as many hummingbirds, moths, dragonflies, and other winged creatures.
 
The game responds to how agile the cat is, increasing the pace and making it more challenging if they are catching a lot of critters. Handy for training them to catch real-life bugs, exercise their paw-to-eye coordination, or just to keep them entertained.

Surprisingly, this is not the first tablet game for cats. Friskies released six previous ones and is even hosting a Hackaton to encourage developers to craft more games for cats, with a $15,000 reward for the grand prize. All the games are available on iOS, and the newer ones, like Happy Wings, are also available on Android.
 
Of course, cats have never been too shy to jump on your keyboard or try to take a swipe at your monitor or tablet screen, but now you can keep them occupied with some purpose-built gaming. You might want to invest in a screen cover, however.
