Summary: In comparison to Purr Pals, this game is more realistic in showing caring for your cat. However, I found the gameplay weak which didn't push me enough to play more to unlock the mini games (which were mentioned in other reviews). Other things you can do: Can dress up your cat. Shop to buy items: food (canned, dry, catnip, and treats), water, and toys (ex. laser light toy. An essential toy for all IRL cat owners.) Take pictures of your cat.
Summary: At first I didn't want it because the first petz catz was awful but this one is WAY better. I just wish you could have more than three cats. I play it like every day. It's a little hard but I love it. It's my favorite ds game every! Mostly because I love cats. Best game ever!
