One of the first posts I wrote for Pawesome was dedicated to iPad games for cats. Since then Friskies has added several more games to their repertoire, and soon they’re going to release one that will let humans in on the fun! You vs. Cat is described as “a sort of a 21st century air hockey table for you and your favorite feline friend.” Apparently they demoed the game at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, and test-cat Buddy (pictured above) went all bananas on it.
