Feed the Kitty is as simple as a cat's life. Mice are on the menu, and as they move from place to place, it's anyone's guess who will end up hungry and who will get to have a full belly. Will you be caught catnapping or will you pounce into the lead? The answer is all in the roll of the dice!
In this fast moving game, try to keep your mice away from the kitty. Roll an arrow and pass one to the left. Roll a sleeping cat and you're lucky to squeak by. But roll a bowl and it's dinnertime for kitty! The last player left with mice wins.

Feed the Kitty is fun and imaginative. Kids can even make believe that the big orange cat on the cover of the box is THE CAT THAT IS GOING TO EAT THE MICE. That cat! This game helps teach kids left and right, how to count, how to take turns and it’s fun whether you win or lose.
Kids can also catch on to this game fast. The game box says it’s for players ages 4 and up, but I can see pre-schoolers loving this game, too (as long as they’re supervised). After all, the cat wants to eat the mice but you don’t want your kids to.
The colors of Feed the Kitty are vibrant and refreshing and the mice are made of wood. The dice have pictures on as well that seem ‘carved’ and so tactilely the kids are also playing with various fun shapes and/or designs.
Grown-ups can love this game, too. And kids of all ages in my opinion. Playing time is 15 minutes. That’s just about right for many of us. And especially those that wish to play Feed the Kitty over and over again!; You don’t want to lose your mice, though!
Everybody starts with the same amount of mice (leftovers go in the Kitty’s bowl). “The persons with the shortest pinky goes first.” The winner is the last one left with mice. The instructions say “No Mice, No Dice!” But you will be pounced if you are caught catnapping.
Because the dice have pictures, that makes the game even more fun! For example, the four pictures are” a bowl of catfood (Mice!), an arrow, a cat and a cat sleeping (do nothing). This incorporates kids thinking skills. In fact, if you roll sleeping cats on both dice you’re safe for that turn.
This is the kind of game that I feel could be a family game forever. Since it is not a “character game”, it won’t get out-dated. Its concept is adorable all by itself. Great for birthday parties and in fact any gift. “Feed the Kitty” is even affordable for kids to buy with their own allowance!
Feed the Kitty is a great game for kids. It received a T.O.Y. (Toy-of- the-Year) award from FamilyFun magazine. Wall Street Journal calls it "the Oscar of toy awards". Kids play with the toys and get to choose which ones they like... Lots of kids, lots of toys.
This game has won many awards including: Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award, Today's Parent Magazine Top Toy of the Year, Adding Wisdom Award, Parenting Magazine Toy of the Year, Creative Child Magazine Preferred Choice Award, Dr. Toy's Best Vacation Products, and Parenting for High Potential Magazine Recommended
There is a reason that games like “Feed the Kitty” and “Hi-Ho Cheerio” (which has little semblance to “Feed the Kitty” ) are popular among children… they are fun for them. Children don’t need to play chess all the time. There are still things to learn from playing the game like patience and hope. I was surprised, when I played it, to see someone (who by all traditional standards had lost) come from complete defeat to winning the game.
Although the box says it’s for 4 years old and up, I believe it could be played by younger children. It very easy to learn and understand although I can see why there could be a little confusion at first about waiting when you have no pieces. Playing a couple of rounds can put you back in the game. Nice design, the pieces look and feel great, great idea (better than LCR) and fast fun. I give it 4 ½ stars (only because no game should get 5 stars).
Look my kids love this game so it has a warm place in my heart, but if you want the hard truth to this one the great Tom Vasel lays it out pretty clearly in his review. You roll dice and do what they say. As I said my kids love it! They also love rolling down hills and bad puns and Raffi. This is better than all of those things but I much prefer any of Iello's Tales and Games series. I love games and don't mean to sound snobby, but there are better games out there. If you have very young kids, 3-4 years old I think this is awesome! But for anyone older, there are much better options out there.
