Cat App Review: Cat Condo

Cat Condo

Today we’re pleased to bring you our brief review of a cute app called Cat Condo.

In this game, you start off with a small cat condo with a little white kitty cat on each of its platforms. You combine two white kitty cats to create a gray kitten. Then you combine two gray kittens to create a sneaky cat, two sneaky cats to create a Japanese bobtail … and so on, combining cats at higher and higher levels to create new breeds. As you progress, your condo grows with the addition of more and more platforms to accommodate all those cats.

Here are just some of the 40 cats you can unlock in Cat Condo.
The condo grows as you reach higher levels.
Empty platforms will automatically fill with cat carriers holding white kitty cats, and sometimes you’ll get a surprise cat—a sneaky cat, say, instead of the white kitty cat. If you watch an ad, you can upgrade your surprise cat. You also earn coins that you can use to buy higher-level cats so you can progress to the new breeds more quickly. But each time you buy a cat, the price of that type of cat goes up. And of course you can spend real money to make the game go faster.

Cat Condo is a lot of fun at first, as you get to the new breeds quickly. But then it starts to take a long time to create the high-level cats needed to unlock even higher-level cats, and honestly, combining tons of white kitty cats into gray kittens into sneaky cats and so on and so forth gets old after a not very long time. There are 40 cats you can unlock, and after about three weeks of occasional play, we have only gotten to number 15 (a really cute American bobtail).

At least as far as we’ve found, there isn’t much strategy or challenge to this game, so it doesn’t take a lot of concentration. That makes it good if you want something cute and easy to occupy your hands while you watch TV or whatever (since you humans can’t seem to do just one thing at a time these days). But if you want something more engrossing, this is not that game. Still, Cat Condo is mildly distracting, and old SoLT finds it relaxing to check in for a few minutes in the evening to work toward unlocking the next cute cat. Maybe someday, far in the future, she’ll unlock all 40!


Cat Condo is available for iOS and Android devices. We played on an iPad.


One Paw Up! A good app

A note on the "Paws Up" system: Miss C gives either one or two paws up. One paw is for a good app; two paws is for a great app. She never gives three or four paws because that would require her to lie on her back...and Miss C does not do that!

  4. That sounds like fun! I must admit, I hardly ever try gaming apps. I'm afraid of becoming addicted, especially when it's cat-related!
