Cat: The Game.  A video game in which you play a stray cat, prowling the mean streets of New York City or the fields and backyards of some rural place.  You need to forage, hunt, defend your territory, and look for mates.  The goal is to produce as many offspring as possible; a tally in the upper right-hand corner of the screen tells you your total progeny to that point.  In addition to fighting for survival, you could also make use of friendly humans who might sometimes feed you, and even strike up unlikely friendships with squirrels, horses, etc.  Kind of like Grand Theft Auto, but with a cat.

Spinoffs of this game could feature almost any animal — even microorganisms — since nature is so competitive.
