ChatChat is an online multiplayer game by Terry Cavanagh, creator of VVVVVV. It's a highly intricate simulation involving deep-level behavioral algorithms and calculus-based — wait, no it isn't! It's about being a kitty! The wildest dream of every internet human has come true in this simple little game, giving you full permission to nap, purr, meow, and catch mice to your furry heart's content.
So what's the life of a cat like? Pretty much like you'd imagine. You have a handful of areas to explore, with territory ranging from an alley to the "mush room" and even a tree top. You'll come across little tip boxes from time to time, as well as plaques that broadcast your position when you step on them. There are even a few commands you can unleash from the chat box, including napping, meowing, screeching, and purring. Cat stuff, basically!
There's sort of a goal in ChatChat, which is to capture mice and bring them back to your doorstep, but it doesn't give you anything beyond points, which are about as useful as mittens for lobsters. You can also get turned into a dog, which functions sort of like a game of tag, adding a bit of craziness to the otherwise laid back social atmosphere. If you're looking for some time to kill and would like to pretend you're a cat, well, now you know where to go!
Just to let you guys know; the rating on this one applies to the fact that it's an online game, so other players may change the experience for you.
Your experience greatly depends upon the people you meet and how cool they are. For example: I once played an epic game of dog tag with another kitty, only to block him out of the tree by getting a bunch of other cats to sleep near the base. Priceless! If you don't find cool people at first, keep trying, they're out there!
Mittens are useful for cooked lobsters

Surprisingly fun, especially if you find a good group.
The top of The Tree seems to turn into an impromptu silly chat room, complete with games like 'let's make a rainbow with our cats' and 'what shape are we making now?'
I heartily approve <3
I've got a problem. I'm trying to play this game because it sounds really cool, but it won't load for me. It just shows a black screen where the game should be. I'm playing on a Windows 7 computer, on Firefox, if that helps.
Takes a while to find awesome people, but totally worth it when you do.
By the way, has anyone else come across a certain spammer by the name of Jerkcat? Ruined our room.
If you want to turn into a dog
Take a rat to the dog altar (hidden passage above the north/eastern spot of the map)
i like dog tag game i just be a dog and tag all the kitty yay
I love this game. Btw if you turn into a dog but want to be changed back, either tag another player or catch a mouse and bring it to the doorstep.
I started an ingame cult ;)
Have you accepted the truth of
This game is great!
It is a fun game! I found a group of bronies with names of the characters and we played together. I just wish you could decide your cat's color.
It won't let me go in anywhere?
It keeps saying "Enter Room Name to Create" but when I try, it just says that that room isn't available or something...I tried KittyRpg and KittyRpg2 but they didn't work either. What's going on?
I keep trying to play this game but I keep getting what the game is calling a "connection error". I've played this game before and this has'nt happend. Is it because I'm using internet explorer 7? Do I need to update my internet browser?
The game still works on Kongregate so you could play it there while it gets fixed here :)
[The game is fixed! Sorry for the delay, Terry updated the game with a new multiplayer engine, which is why it stopped working here. -Jay]
some perve on the sever I was on asked me to have a sex chat with him O_O
Sorry to hear someone's being a jerk on the game. Just meow and walk away! :-) Games with lots of online interactions always carry the risk of someone pulling a stunt like that. At least with this game they're easier to ignore.
I found a hidden music room!
It's in the southeastern part of the twisty cavern.
Someone says they're stuck following me. How do they undo that?
Hi guys i am new here!
send me a request please
This Game Sometimes Is Boring... SOMETIMES! Like If U Agree xD
Hai max! If ur there
No you dont. Sometimes when I play it says that. It's only because the game is gonna crash. That's all.
That's right. despite that I was once a Thunderclan, I have decided to give up my cozy life to come and risk my hononorable clan member. I want to help and be friends with all of you. FEWW!!
aww, is the game broke?
I loved Chatchat when I were a kid
