15 Cozy Games Where You Play As A Cat, And With Cats

Let’s talk about our love of cats for a minute. I mean, who doesn’t love adorable little kitties with their big eyes and itty bitty toe beans?

I’m a cat mom myself. Tifa is a naughty tortie named after my favorite female Final Fantasy character. I know you’re supposed to call your pets goofy names like Katy Purry and Edger Allen Paw but I couldn’t bring myself to do it! I’m a basic girl who likes generic names, sorry to disappoint.

I’m actually allergic to my cute kitty though would you believe it, but I couldn’t resist her.

So I became a cat mom 12 years ago and we’ve had our ups and downs. She was the runt of the litter so that tends to come with complications. Tifa has an allergy to chicken (do you know how hard it is to find food for cats without chicken in?!) and doesn’t climb anything. She insists on being picked up just to sit on the sofa.

Okay maybe she’s just lazy, I don’t know. Cats are funny like that.

As a certified cat lady, I do tend to lean towards video games that have animals in them. Especially if those animals are cats! So I’ve found these indie games and a few AAA titles you’ll enjoy playing snuggled up with your feline friend. There’s nothing quite like listening to the sound of kitty purrs while you’re playing your cozy games, am I right? 

Here is my list of the 15 best kitty cat games you should pick up ASAP!

Milo and the Magpies is a hand-painted masterpiece that I almost overlooked. It’s a point-and-click, hidden object game that follows the story of a sweet little cat named Milo. After an unfortunate encounter with some pesky magpies Milo finds himself lost and in need of a guiding hand to help him find his way home. A rather short game but hits the sweet spot for a nice little play before bed.

I was always the one failing all the levels, but it was fun.
