Stray has officially been released and it’s giving more than a fun cat simulation experience as Annapurna Interactive is helping a charity that saves cats.
Stray has been highly anticipated since it was first announced and has become a hit game on PlayStation and PC. It’s currently part of the PlayStation Plus Games Catalog, meaning you can play it for free if you have a Premium membership. Reviews are overwhelmingly positive with gamers marveling at the beautiful world and realistic cat behaviors.
The story is all about helping the four-legged protagonist find his family. Now, cat lovers can also help cats find homes in real life through Annapurna Interactive’s fundraiser.
How Stray developers are helping raise money for homeless cats
Annapurna Interactive teamed up with Cats Protection to raise money for homeless cats. Cats Protection is a non-profit charity run by volunteers who save over 166,000 kittens and cats a year. It’s the largest and oldest cat-focused charity, having rehomed over 2 million cats over the past 90 years.
