According to a 2021 survey conducted by Ofcom, people living in the UK check their smartphones, on average, every twelve minutes of the day. From this data, it is clear to see that Smartphones have fast become an essential part of our daily lives. From Internet banking, online shopping and communicating with friends, family and loved ones, it seems there is an app for just about everything!
For cat owners in particular, mobile apps can make it easier than ever to schedule in vet’s visits, order cat food or purchase pet accessories in just a few simple swipes. But aside from the essential pet friendly apps, there are many that have been designed purely for entertainment purposes to help us pass the time and make us laugh. At Country Boarding for Cats and Dogs, we have identified three of the most entertaining and fun cat friendly apps available in 2023, specifically for cat owners. We hope you find these apps fun and will hopefully download them from the app store when you get a chance.
Can you speak cat? If not don’t worry, because thanks to the fun training app, MeowTalk, it can successfully translate your feline’s meows into English, helping you to better understand your pet’s needs. The app translates each meow into a general intent, such as ‘happy’, ‘sad’, or ‘angry.’ Overall, there are nine intents that MeowTalk measures helping to bolster the bond between felines and their owners by giving them a voice.
However, if you feel the app wrongfully translates one of your cat’s meows, you can correct this and manually explain what your pet was in fact saying. Once you have corrected the app, the programme will remember this for next time and then correctly translate it when your pet meows the same way again.
In addition to the linguistic training, the app will also educate you on your cat’s behavioural traits. For example, if your cat scratches the furniture instead of using their cat scratching post or uses a corner of the room instead of their litterbox, the app will help to diagnose the problem and provide a helpful solution.
Another great feature of the app is that it answers the most common questions often asked by owners, such as: why cats have whiskers, why they purr when we stroke them and what to look for when choosing a suitable cattery. This cat training app is incredibly fun but also informative and a must have for any cat owner.
2. Cat Alone
This app is great fun and requires no human supervision for your cat to enjoy the game. Simply leave your cat alone with your smartphone or tablet and watch them try and catch various items that appear on your screen. The app has six levels and offers a fantastic assortment of items for your cat to catch that include laser pointers, ladybugs, flies, and other insects that your four-legged friend will love! You can also turn on the Selfie Mode within the app that allows you to save and share photos of your feline’s best hunting exploits.
3. Cat Piano
Despite the name, this free app does not train your cat how to play the piano! However, the app does play a distinct meow sound for each note you hit on its digital keyboard. Customers can choose from up to three cat voice options with 14 octaves, guaranteed to provide lots of fun for you and your cat. This app is a great way to pass the time and entertain friends and family, allowing you to play your favourite piano songs using a melee of cat sounds. This fun app is very popular with many cat owners who have small children, often scoring high reviews online.
Whether you are an Android or an iOS user, these apps will provide you with plenty of entertainment. There are many other fun cat friendly apps available to download so when you have a moment explore the app store and find an app that will help you start the New Year with lots of laughter and smiles!
