Friskies® Brings Extra Feline Enjoyable with the Reboot of Cat Fishing 2, a Recreation Designed Particularly for Cats | Information

ST. LOUIS, February 23, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Over the past year, people have spent more time at home than ever before, and as quoted by Forbes, gaming has increased across the country. While people have improved their gaming skills, Friskies is focused on another competitor: the cat player. Friskies is excited to announce the launch of its updated game for cats, Cat Fishing 2, which is now available for free on iOS and Android devices.

The game offers a creative, easy way to enrich your cat’s life and support mental stimulation. The games are perfect to play with and encourage them to plunge and move as if they were in the wild, using their natural hunting instincts.

The update includes special noises and schools of fish to prevent them from scratching back. The game even allows cats to hunt for prey in a custom pond with virtual fish and decorations. The more fish your cat catches, the more points it will earn. Users can now also show off their kitty’s perfect score by sharing it on social media.

“While many pet owners and pets have spent more time at home over the past year, it’s important to find ways to keep our pets active and engaged,” said Dr. Annie Valuska, Ph.D., Senior Pet Behavioral Expert at Purina. “The Cat Fishing 2 game is a fun and easy way to provide cats with a stimulating and enriching experience while building the bond between cats and their owners.”

To kick off the game, Friskies have teamed up with cat influencers from across the country to put Cat Fishing 2 to the test and compete for the chance to be crowned “Friskies Cat Fishing Champion”. Friskies challenged Nathan Kehn (@nathanthecatlady), Sarah Whittle (@rudeunicorns) and Leslie (@fuslie) share their highest scores while playing Cat Fishing 2.

Abdallah Elayan (@abdallahnation) Cat Enzo was named the first official “Friskies Cat Fishing Champion” with a score of 4,888 points.

“We are so proud to be the winner of this challenge and we recommend this game to cat owners looking for new ways to entertain their pets,” said Elayan. “Not only was this an exciting game for my cat Enzo, it was a joy for a pet parent to watch and show off.”

The game is now available as a free download for iOS and Android devices. Visit your App Store or download it here. For more information on Friskies game options, please visit www.purina.com/friskies/cat-games.
