Those who own cats know that the furry feline tyrants are not to be trifled with. When they want food, you give them food. When they want sleep, you let them sleep.
Unless, of course, you're playing Wake the Cat, in which case the best thing you can do for a sleeping kitty is to roll a ball of yarn at its face.
While humanitarians might bristle at this premise, the cat never seems upset by the arrival of the yarn. Instead, it hops right up to play with it kicking off a mobile puzzle game that may well be the successor to the venerable Cut the Rope.
A cute cat and disarming presentation can't hide the fact that this is a puzzler with staying power
