$20K to be awarded in first ever game jam for cats

Friskies maker Purina is sponsoring what we're pretty sure is the first event of its kind: a game jam in which teams compete to make the best game (or app!) aimed at the growing feline population of game players.
There's a game jam happening in Los Angeles the weekend before GDC which we're pretty sure is the first of its kind. Friskies maker Purina is sponsoring what it is calling the "Games for Cats Hackathon," a weekend-long jam where aspiring developers will compete to create games (or apps) for cats to play with. The grand prize-winning team will take home $15,000, with $3,000 and $2,000 awards for the runners-up. Thinking of entering, but don't know where to start? Gamasutra's got you covered: check out 5 tips for making video games your cat wants to play. Event registration is open here.
