At first glance, this above iPad app titled "KITTY!" looked like a cross between the Game Boy games about pets and the Tamagotchi's of yesterday. But upon further inspection, I'm kind of in love with this virtual cat: it sleeps, it purrs, and it looks at you with the realistic-looking and loving eyes when you pet it. Of course, you can't actually pet the thing, but the high-definition imagery combined with a screen that's very sensitive to the touch, it might do the trick for a girl with an apartment far too tiny for an actual kitty.
