This past year, people have spent more time at home than ever before, and while humans have been honing their gaming skills, so have cats.
Abdallah Elayan’s (@abdallahnation) cat, Enzo, was named the first official “Friskies Cat Fishing Champion,” achieving a score of 4,888 points.
Friskies partnered with cat influencers from across the country to launch Cat Fishing 2, including the chance to compete in the Cat Fishing competoition.
The game, which is available for free for iOS and Android devices, provides a simple way to enrich a cat’s life and support mental stimulation, according to Friskies. The game allows cats to prowl for prey in a custom pond stocked with virtual fish and decorations.
The update includes special sounds and schools of fish to keep them clawing back for more. The more fish your cat catches, the more points they rack up.
Users can also now brag about their kitty’s purrfect score by sharing on social media.
“We are so proud to be the winners of this challenge and recommend this game for cat owners looking for new ways to entertain their pet,” said Elayan in a press release. “Not only was this an exciting game for my cat, Enzo, it was such a joy as a pet parent to watch and show off.”
