Purrfect Tale is more than just a cat collecting game. It’s also a charming visual novel about a girl and a cat who can magically transform into a human. The visual novel is divided into acts and each act has several chapters. In each chapter, you will have to complete certain tasks and simple puzzles to progress through the story.

However, interacting with objects isn’t limited to tapping/touching the screen. You will have to drag your fingers over objects to open them, solve jigsaw puzzles and sift through objects to find hidden items. In case you are stuck on a particular task, tap the hint button on the top-left corner of the screen or read our Purrfect Tale walkthrough if you need solutions for tasks and puzzles:

In the next screen, your character checks her smartphone. Tap on the app that has a red dot to open it.
Open the messaging app and read mom’s message. You can either choose “Okay got it” or “I can take care of myself. Don’t worry”. It’s your wish. Don’t think it may affect the story in any way.
Read the conversation with mom, especially the laundry detergent part. You will have to buy that from the store/supermarket.
Next, you will be taken to the map. It has three locations – School (you are here currently), supermarket and home. Tap on supermarket.
On the lower-left is the shopping list. It reads – Instant Noodle, laundry Detergent and Pineapple Bun. You will notice that the list also has tiny pictures next to them, but they are of no use.

In the classroom, tap on the like button on your smartphone repeatedly, but be careful. The teacher will be alerted. Make sure you stop tapping the like button when the red exclamation mark appears above your teacher. Keep tapping the like button to fill the pink bar. Try to pause after a few taps and do this regularly. Make sure you tap a few times and stop before the exclamation mark appears on top of him. Sometimes the exclamation mark appears quite frequently, so pay attention to this. It’s a fun mini-game, and you will have to be quick and cautious wile tapping the like button.
When the teacher calls you at his desk. Tap on the sentences in the white box on bottom of the screen. When you tap on a sentence, it scrolls on the screen horizontally, showing what’s on her mind.
Keep tapping sentences inside the white box until you have used all of them.
In the time table, stick your feelings about these classes on the timetable. There be several feelings appearing on the bottom of the screen, such as a sad smiley, poo, crying smiley etc. indicating you are bored with all these subjects.

In the classroom, you will be reading a comic. Again tap on the comic before the exclamation mark appears above the professor/teacher. Tapping the comic book flips the pages.

You would be much safe if you stop tapping the smartphone even before the exclamation mark appears.
Note: I realized that filling the pink bar in the classroom mini-game doesn’t have any affect. Even if you fill the pink bar, your teacher will still reprimand you. It’s just a mini-task. That’s it.
