Many content creators are finding fun and creative ways to play the game while incorporating their own feline companions one creator even went as far as to add an end stream button that their cat could press at any point while they streamed the game. How could your cats resist when you have not only the meow button but the ability to knock over objects over ledges or even ruin a perfectly good chess game.
