This project is a CircuitPython
displayio port of an old school animated screenmate application that ran on mac and other platforms. The sprite sheet included in this project was obtained from here.
The cute little kitty will wander around the display and scratch at the edges when it gets close enough. The original ones followed your computer mouse. Our CircuitPython version will chase after a laser dot that you can place by touching the screen. The Neko kitty has a mind of its own, like all cats - it will decide to stop and sleep or clean its paws whenever it wants to.
Whether you just want this cute kitty to keep you company, or you're interested in making you're own custom
displayio based animated virtual pet, this guide is a great starting point.
