ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Great, now the cats really will be downloading kitty pr0n onto our computers!
Apple, toys for mammals since 1976.
So how did the screen hold up against cat claws?
It doesn’t use its claws when it plays with the screen, my cat does the same with my Ipod during i’m watching videos, there’s no danger !
My favourite part is when the cat looks at the camera with that “Stop making me do this…can I go yet?” expression.
I can haz styluz?
My stupid owner thinks thinks I am so cute, but I’m really just trying to cover up after iPooed.
The iTunes store has a free App called “Cat Game” that is a game for cats, as you would expect. It is a laser pointer on a floor background (or other background) for the cat to tap. Turn it on, give to cat, watch! It is too funny.
So does the cat speak now? Is it hyperintelligent?
Almost makes me want to get a cat. Almost.
Yay! Just what the world needed, a $600 cat toy.
Sarcasm aside, that is a pretty cute kitteh.
I’m considering buying an iPad just to piss off all of the people b****ing and moaning about the iPad and the iPad posts on BB.
They’re even worse than the steampunk whiners.
I loved the little look up to the camera. “You made it boring, bring back the green snake.”
@1, 3: Your diatribe is boring and contemptuous. You may not touch my monkey.
My cat does the same thing when I show him YouTube videos of little animals. My netbook casing has permanent scratches from when he dug in his fangs, to try to get at the birds he thought were ‘inside’ the computer.

Hey, buy 4 of them. That will REALLY piss us off!!!
I can’t wait to see what an ape does with one of these.
Break it in half, in a postmodern statement about technology and the destruction of the natural world. We’ll just think it’s angry at its clumsy, non-human hands, though, so the message won’t get through.
I cant wait for the time, when technology advances to the point when we can increase cats intelligence to human level, I’d love to talk to cats :)
Is that cat not SCRATCHING that thing???? Kind of expensive to become a cat toy – cute vid, though.
This cat was totally going to be a maker or a software engineer, but now? No more.
Look at the evil the iPad hath wrought. JUST LOOK AT IT!
That is what the look to the camera meant! “Where the f*** is the C compiler??”
(or, to put it in kitteh, “I can haz C++?”)
“Noooo where mah command prompt?”
Man, kitties hate walled gardens.
Most practical use for one so far.
“Play ‘em off, iPad Cat!”
*runs for cover*
Go Go Krazy Kitty!
aaaaand it has become a mere cat toy…
Hmm. I think I need to upload the video of my parrot playing “Blowfish” on my iTouch. He seems to have a better grasp of the game strategy than this cat.
ballsy, letting a clawed kitty use your iPad!
Does anyone else see the danger of ipad fail with a pawing cat and cup of coffee an inch away from the machine?
the music i’m listening to made this seem way more epic
Cleverly, the videographer had Keyboard Cat play the video off.
Why’s it not coming out the ends?
Clearly there is a market for apps for cats. Imagine say a big bug that walks around slowly. If you tap near it, it runs away. Tap on it, and it’s “pinned” for a bit and wiggles. As soon as you let go, it runs away again.
Also as perhaps eluded to above by another poster, there is also a need for a “My cat rates your app” website.
Pah! Kittens these days! Back when I was a youngin’ our yarn was made of thread! THREAD y’hear?!
My cat had to make do with a slide rule.
iPad, brought to you by Confuse-A-Cat, Ltd.
(How’s that for a dated reference…?)
Is it insured for cat scratches on the screen?
Give the cat an iPhone, then it can ring and torment the dog.
srsly? are they paying you to post this stuff?
ps – love how Xeni’s praise article is a “feature.” where’s Cory’s legit crit?
what? you don’t remember how long cory’s article was repped up top? what with the upside jobs holding an iPad image and all…
It’s obvious that the cat is an iPad hater. True cat owners will recognize Iggy’s paw action is that same instinctive action used in burying waste in the litter box. Thus, Iggy, symbolically, is making the statement that he thinks the iPad is a piece of cat poopie.
Oh my god…. can’t we all just enjoy a cat doing something amusing? I hate Jobs’ little power games as well, but this is friggin’ awesome!
Just enjoy it and shut yer cake hol.
Very cute, but be careful — I’ve seen that scratching/digging motion before. In conjunction with a litterbox.
not warner crocker’s cat, it is mine :/
i even e-mailed this to the bb tip line. i guess random blog posts get precedence!
Woop — sorry about that! Duly edited!
@ChrisGiarmo: how much do I want to live in a world where Steve Jobs calls me up to say “I’ve got a hundred bucks and a YouTube of a cat: you know what to do.”
and now :
