What is not to love about cats?  They are there for you after a rough day at work.  They will always come running when they hear their name.  They love belly rubs…wait.

Ok maybe cats aren’t the most compassionate animals.  Maybe they aren’t the most loyal.  And maybe they aren’t the best for giving belly rubs unless you enjoy the thrill of getting skin grafts.

For whatever the reason, we still love our fluffy feline companions and they love us for our warm laptop keyboards.  A symbiotic relationship.

So let’s honor our hairballs goofballs on National Cat Day by showing off cat-related stuff for mobile.

Assuming that you are less than 30 years old you have probably heard and seen Nyan Cat.

Maybe you have watched Nyan Cat for ten whole hours on a single YouTube video.  Maybe you’re the type of person who wants to watch Nyan Cat for even longer.

If you are infatuated with the cherry Pop-Tart cat that is….radiating… a never-ending rainbow here is the wallpaper for you.

On the Google Play Store there is a live wallpaper that is a nonstop loop of Nyan Cat.  You’re welcome.

He just keeps going

Let’s add another famous cat to our National Cat Day thread.  As a 24-year-old male I cannot believe I’m about to say this, but it would not be a cat day without Hello Kitty.

If you’re looking for a smartphone case, Amazon has you covered.  They have a plethora of Hello Kitty cases for just about every phone out there and in typical Amazon fashion the prices are fantastic.

Why should humans get the benefit of playing with mobile devices?  Maybe felines want to have fun too.  Well they can!

Nestlé Purina…yes the real company… actually has an app for your cat on iPad, iPhone, and Android.  It is called, “Cat Fishing 2” and is to help your cat keep its hunting skills sharp during the winter.

Ok I completely made that last bit up, but it is neat that cats can interact with mobile devices and much as we do.

Your cat will now be on the same cognitive level as Jerry Smith!

Jerry is practically a cat

And finally, a CAT[erpillar] smartphone.  I guess it technically counts as being cat-related for National Cat Day.

The CAT S40 is the newest IP68 ruggedized smartphone from the company that makes backhoes and steamrollers.

It is drop proof up to 6ft onto solid concrete.

It is dust proof.

It is waterproof.

It is freeze proof.

It is probably even cat proof.


The S40 is a pretty decent-looking device.  It also has some pretty good specs.  A quad-core processor, a 3000mAh battery, 16GB of storage with an SD card option, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, and 1080p videos at 60 frames per second are some of the highlights for the S40.

Oh and it comes with Android Lollipop 5.1 installed.

So how are you celebrating National Cat Day with your fuzzy friend?  Are you taking so many pictures that they look even more annoyed?  Are you treating them to a can of Fancy Feast?  Are there any new ways you use mobile devices to play with your cat?  Let me know in the comments below!
