Neko 4.0g

A lightweight and portable application that adds a small cat to your desktop, while boasting several configuration options for all users
Neko is a tiny and portable utility that shows a cat on the desktop that chases the mouse cursor. It comprises a few configurable settings and targets all users who are constantly looking for new ways to animate their screens.

Since installation is not a requirement, you can drop the program files anywhere on the hard drive and run the executable immediately.

It is also possible to save Neko to a USB flash disk or similar device, in order to run it on any workstation with minimum effort.

An important aspect to take into account is that the Windows registry does not receive new keys, and files are not kept on the hard disk after app removal.

At startup, Neko creates an icon in the system tray area, where you can access the Settings panel. Therefore, you can create as many cats as you want and modify options for each profile.

It is impossible to increase or decrease the frame size, use another image from the library, make the frame stay on top of other windows, as well as adjust speed and mouse sensitivity.

In addition, you can set the frequency for triggering sounds and mark events (e.g. sleep, awake), enable footprints and apply an image from the library, as well as change the behavior mode (e.g. run away from the mouse, pace around the screen).

Neko has a good response time and barely uses CPU and RAM, so it doesn't affect user activity or slow down performance. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests, and the tool did not hang or crash. However, Neko has not been updated for a long time, and the video animation does not have a very good quality.
