The best toy for your cat might be your tablet! These fun and zany apps are perfect for cats. Worried about your screen? The folks over at Friskies ® who created gamesforcats.com say, “We’ve found that the alkali-aluminosilicate glass screen on the iPad® stands up to our cat’s claws with no problems, but please be aware that a cat’s sharp claws could damage add-on plastic film ‘screen protectors.’”
