Can the iPad screen be scratched by a cat? — 8 Comments

  1. Does anyone know of a kind of protector screen you buy that fits over the ipad screen so the cat and still play but isn’t constantly closing the videos.

    • Hi Christina. I don’t know of a screen. Anyway, I don’t think it would stop the apps being operated. I think what is required is some way to lock the screen so that the app works but is not touch sensitive to being closed. I don’t think that exists. It may be that as the iPad was not designed to be used by cats there may not be a solution to your problem. Thanks for visiting.

  2. By the way I bought my cats a tablet and they love it. They wouldn’t even let me charge it because they were all over it. Gigi comes for pad time when it’s bedtime and she loves that thing and plays alot with it. Both her and Lilly go at it as hard as they can and it hasn’t gotten scratched so far but it’s only been a couple weeks. We will see. Its a Samsung android tablet – I can’t stand apple phones or pads. Lilly is very extreme in her playing and she really goes at and ends up flipping it over or she manages to go onlne or open some other app – she’s a very enthusiastic player. If it scratches then so be it. It is the most expensive cat toy I have bought to date. I have video’s of them playing with it – I could send one over if you want.

    • You are the first person I know who has provided a clear answer to the question of whether cats can scratch a iPad or any tablet screen. Many thanks. Also, I have read elsewhere that cats do find the cat games on tablet computers stimulating. What I am saying is that I think that tablet games for cats are probably more interesting to the cat than the convention games like laser pointers. I am guessing but there is resistance to letting a cat use a tablet computer for the reason I state in the post: scratched screen. You are very generous to your cats.
