iPad "Game for Cats" Makes it Easy for Cats to Buy DLC

The iPad's Game for Cats is meant specifically to amuse cats—humans generally won't get much out of it. But it may be a little too good at what it does, based on some recent evidence, as it turns out cats are getting so addicted to the game that they're buying all its DLC as well.

There's an additional level available for 99 cents, and it turns out it's so easy to access that some people's cats are buying it themselves, without even asking permission. Bad kitty!

Some people even blamed the developers, Hiccup, going as far as to accuse them of purposely making the DLC accessible to cats. Well duh.

The "problem" has been fixed, now, with the devs implementing a simple test to make sure the user is indeed human before allowing them to spend any money: holding down multiple fingers for a few seconds.

Who's to blame? The careless developers or the irresponsible cats who have no sense of the value of a dollar? Tell us what you think in the comments or on Twitter.
