The UK is renowned as a nation of animal lovers, particularly when it comes to dogs and cats. This passion for animals has been translated into popular culture, from television and movies to video games.
More recently, we have also seen a rise in the number of animal-themed online games, across PC platforms and online casinos. These are usually free-to-access and offer a host in-game purchase options, while they tend to be incredibly fun, interactive and immersive.

The sheer range of animal games available is vast, however, meaning that it can be difficult to select your favourites. Here are our top five picks from the current selection: –
5. Sushi Cat
Our lead character is an extremely cute but insecure cat, who thinks he is too small to achieve his goals in life.
