Purina, in promotion of its Friskies food for cats, launched a range of Apple iPad application games for cats.
Purina's iPad app games include Cat-Fishing, Tasty Treasure Hunt and Party Mix-Up. In the games, cats can chase and paw at the bright colored moving objects, like fish and mice, on the screen. The iPad's touchscreen responds to the cat's paw just as it does a human's hand.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
