An ectocomp game about a cat and their nine lives, February 4, 2016

In this shortish parser game, you play a cat in a house with all sort of goofy horrors, anyone of which can destroy you. It turns out that you have nine lives, and need to use them all up.

There are many different ways to go here, from simple deaths to magical and obscure.

This game was intended for the 3 hour comp, but grew and grew, so it was entered in the longer competition.

I found it to be fun for a quick play. Multiple solutions help as well. Good for those looking for a short, humorous game.
