Garbage Cat accurately simulates the one great pleasure of being a cat

cat Ruining human sleep. Will Herring created this 5-minute browser game in honor of his "garbage cat."

You play as my garbage cat, who wakes me up at 3AM literally every morning.

Knock everything over until your owner wakes up.

Use the arrow keys to move and jump.

Press Z to meow and cry all the time.

Press X to knead with your dumb little paws.

Do your worst.

  1. Being the cat who attempts to wake his master by knocking around pots and pans is a superb game idea. It is especially fun that the game designer added "purr" and "meow" actions. Meow.

    There's another game that's similar: Catlateral Damage
    You're job isn't to wake up your human, but to knock everything onto the floor. Has jazzy backing music and everything. It's written in the Unity engine and is pretty soothing.

  3. Well, so do you... maybe. :wink:

    Actually, I had that thought the first time I realized my cat prefers to drink from the faucet, Well, I drink from there all the time. I dunno, between myself and the housemates, we have three cats in the house, and while they spend a great majority of their time not having any fucks to give, they do like to hang out in laps and be affectionate often. It has to do with socialization. If you play with them, they tend to see you as part of the "cat colony," otherwise, they tend to ignore you. I have one cat that will not sit in a room alone, and simply has to be around people. There's also a dog, and like all old sleepy dogs, is an absolute sweetheart.

  4. slavish devotion of dogs

    And that's exactly why cats are more interesting. Dogs are basically slaves or fascist underlings. They just gravitate to a master, which in nature is their pack leader, and as pets is you. It says nothing about you that your dog hangs around you -- it's just their robotic genetic programming making a mistake. But cats are by nature solitary animals -- if you actually make the point of paying attention to them, they will decide to hang around you for more than food because they actually want to.

    Cats are great, just not for me. They poop inside the house

    As you do, I hope. By pooping outside, as dogs (and to be fair feral and semi-feral cats do as well), they transfer the problem of their waste to people who aren't their owners. And yeah, I know dog owners always like to say that they always clean up after their pet, but the mounds of dog shit on sidewalks that I have to dodge says otherwise.
