Ah, we all dream of being pursued... at least on your Desktop, your cursor can be. Neko, the fluffy white cat, will chase your mouse cursor all over the place. And when your cursor stops moving, Neko yawns, scratches, and takes a snooze.

Okay, its silly... but surprisingly unobtrusive, not to mention cute. Personally, I take evil glee in running dear little Neko to exhaustion --you can change options for reaction time and movement, so he runs away from the cursor too, or does random stuff just like your real-life cat.

There are other options for display settings and sounds, plus Niko minimizes to the system tray. It's a simple setup, just unzip the download file to a folder and click the EXE. Nothin' to it. It's harmless, it's free, don't expect support. But comments to the author via the web site's guestbook would be welcome. Also, visit the website if you become a Neko-a-holic and want to the download some additional sounds and images.
