Petition to make a “pet” option on Neko Astume so you can tap/stroke/pet the cats and unlock special treasures from them based on how much affection you give them. But cats have to be in the right “mood” to be pet. Maybe give them little health bars in their stats so when you click them you can see if the bar is red that means DO NOT PET RIGHT NOW, and if it’s yellow it means Pet A Little Bit, and green means PET LOTS!!!
So like, if you pet their heads/backs enough to get them to roll over to show The Belly then you get super points, and little hearts or purring bubbles pop up on-screen.
And the reverse, if you pet them the wrong way/at the wrong time, they growl and give you fewer points or none at all. Rarer cats are shyer and harder to pet, but when they eventually do trust you enough to let you pet them, they give you more points.
Your new goal is to max out each cat’s Affection Levels until they give you their special treasure. Once you’ve achieved that, you can pet that cat any time you want and they won’t get mad at you anymore. Their bars are always green.
