Cat food maker Friskies recently released what it says is the first iPad app that lets cats and pet owners compete against each other.
The "You vs. Cat" app is an arcade-style game in which the pet owner tries to shoot petfood into a goal box before the cat can stop the food with its paw. The app was recently demonstrated by Buddy the cat at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas, USA.
The app is available for download from the Apple iTunes store.
