I first read some of the other reviews on this site. Apparantly the game is supposed to be unwinnable. It's not- I won it on the second playthrough.
Your cat is ticking. It must have swallowed a bomb. I thought this was funny- such a simple premise: survive the explosion of your cat. The parser keeps the tension up by reminding you of that damn ticking throughout the game.
There were some implementation issues: listen to ticking doesn't exist, bed is not a synonym for mattress, and so forth, but nothing horrible. (Some more testing would have handled this).
Of course, there's a twist to the puzzle, which is why it may seem unwinnable at first. When you figure it out, you smack yourself. There are some nice touches- such as when you try to get rid of the cat out the door or window, great reasons for why this is not possible. And the sparse apartment is well described.
To those reviewers, I suggest they try a re-play of this game. I gave 3 stars, some cleanup of the implementation would earn 4.
The concept here is comedic; the execution is also fairly humorous, although having the parser yell at you every other turn can be a bit grating. As far as I can tell, there's no way to win, so a gaming session consists of exploring a pedestrian apartment spiced with humorous descriptions and ends with you being blown to bits. There's not much in the way of replay value and it won't win any awards for its prose, but it's enjoyable for what it is: a good way to spend ten or fifteen minutes on a lazy day.
Assume nothing. Try everything. Even if it doesn't make sense, remind yourself that you're playing a game about an exploding kitty cat!
This game is certainly amusing and a fun way to kill some time. Sessions are short -- terminated by the titular tabby. Room and item descriptions are humorous, and the present acceptable (if not odd) reasons why you can't just run from your apartment screaming.
Overall, a pleasant (but short) experience.
