    Default looking for an old game platformer with cats

    Good day to ya all

    I've been looking for this game for quite a while now. I remember playing it on some sort of nintendo console knockoff (it had controllers and cassettes from which the game would run) when I was a kid . The game was quite simple yet addictive. Here are some bits I remember:

    I think you were controlling a mouse which had to escape from a bunch of different colored cats. The game was a 2d platformer. There were 3 different platforms each of the same length. The entire level design was some sort of village. The bottom of the screen had a road made of bricks, and at exact intervals there was this thin elastic rope/line on which you could jump, but only 3 times because once you hit it the 3th time it would break. (also, after each jump the line would change colors). So basically you had to run the entire level to collect (I believe) some items while keeping away from the cats which kept hunting you. There were about 2 long platforms each with a wide gap where that elastic rope was supposed to pro-pulse you up.

    Here's a sketch of the thing I still have in mind:

    Notice the houses, I remember them also having a role, maybe capturing the cats for a short period of time but I'm not sure. And also, when jumping on the elastic lines (the blue lines from the sketch) the game would make a short squeaky sound.

    Thank you all for the help, I really appreciate it!
