About this Project:
The app itself allows users to teach themselves about basic cat care while simultaneously carrying out their own studies on various cats of interest.Along with all of this important information (ways to help) users may also complete questionnaires to assess their knowledge, allowing them to maintain what they've learned.And also play a cute simple game involving cats.The reason why this app will help address the problem i mentioned earlier is because it can allow people to know what they are getting themselves into before adopting a cat.Reducing the chance that they won't be able to take care of it.
I created this design based on real-life events. I had a friend who had begged her mom for a kitten for months. Once they had adopted one, they had no idea how to care for it and decided to send it to a kill shelter. This disturbed me enough that I decided to create an app to address this ongoing problem hoping to gain support from others. While looking into animal shelters, I noticed a consistent reference of animal cruelty.This is horrifying to consider, given that the animals have no method of preventing or defending themselves from the awful situations in which they find themselves.I've also noticed that this type of cruelty is more widespread in cats than in dogs.As a cat lover, this upset me even more. I haven't seen much about this recurring problem, therefore I believe my design may be useful. It work by being a chain of pages that can be traversed with the use of buttons if i were to develop this app i would without a doubt add more information, sounds, and improve the mini game.

I love the app because the time and thought you did for this app will not go in vain. Animal cruelty with pets is common around the world, so this app shows the importance. Also, I love the design and the thought put into this app.
