About the StoryOne afternoon, the most important cat around (read: the only one in the house) must set off on a quest fraught with peril, soul-searching, and friendship – all in the name of taking a snooze.
Can you guide this cat to success? Or will it all go horribly wrong?

Fun fact: in the past two years, there have been at least one game with 'cat simulator' in its title. What's not to like? It's certainly fun to speculate on cats' motivation for their inscrutable behaviour, and since domestic cats live in such proximity to humans, it does make one wonder what they think of us, as a species.
In this cat sim, the titular cat is a lazy domestic cat looking for a spot to nap. It's broadly branching, largely relaxing and self-aware: 'good' and 'bad' endings are indicated as such (although is there really a bad ending, if you're still a cat at the end of it?); there is even a list of AMUSING things to do, as in some parser games. A short, pleasant diversion.
Achieves its aim: to be a small game depicting a cat's life, August 21, 2019
However, it matches my ratings system well. It achieves emotional impact in that it makes you think of being a cat very well. It puts you in the mindset of the cat and all the actions are things my cat does.
It's polished in its smallness, and the interactivity work well, as it doesn't feel like lawnmowering to play and the links are placed well, better than many longer works.
It's also descriptive, and that's 4 of my 5 stars right there.
