This free Cat Word Search is a fun way to exercise your brain. Solve it online or print it out. The online version is replayable. The letters rescramble when you restart.
To begin, click the Open the Word Search button. This opens the puzzle in a pop-up window.
Quick Tip: To increase the size of the letters in the grid, click the +A button.
For many more free word searches you can print out on paper, see my word search printables page.
Instructions: Find and circle the words from the list. Words may be forward, backward, vertical, or diagonal within the puzzle.
The words you need to find are listed on the right side of the puzzle. When you find a word in the puzzle, drag the word with the mouse to circle it.
Find all the words in the letter grid before your points fall to zero. If you give up searching for a word, click the Solve button next to the word. This circles the word in the grid for you.
HOW TO PLAY. As with all word searches, the object of the Cat Word Search is to find the words hidden in the puzzle. The words you need to find are listed to the right of the word search.
These include cat breeds and words associated with cats including Abyssinian, Siamese, Persian, Tabby, Calico, Tuxedo, Shorthair, mice, Bobtail, grooming, Balinese, Manx, Ragamuffin, kitten, Angora, Harlequin, Mitted, and tricolor.
Words can be forward, backward, or at a diagonal. When you find a word, cross it off the list by dragging your mouse across the letters of the word.
If you get stuck, try the "Hint" feature. Clicking the Hint button causes the first letter of a word in the puzzle to flash repeatedly as your clue.
CAT FACTS FROM WIKIPEDIA. Here are some interesting facts about domestic cats from Wikipedia:
The earliest direct evidence of cat domestication is a kitten buried with its owner 9,500 years ago in Cyprus.
Cats are now found almost everywhere on Earth.
A group of cats is referred to as a "clowder". A male cat is a "tom" or "gib" if neutered. A female is called a "molly" or "queen".
The term "kitten" (an immature cat) is also the word for young rats, rabbits, hedgehogs, beavers, squirrels, and skunks.
Cats can function with only one-sixth the light level required for human vision at night.
Cats can hear higher-pitched sounds than either dogs or humans.
Unfortunately I am allergic to cats. So even though I like their personalities, the closest I can come is this cat-related word search. :)
Word searches train perception and analytical ability. Solve word searches and other puzzles often to give your brain a boost!
