That's one of the most interesting and enjoyable story found in AGS games, and no matter how much I try, I can't remember a game which would have such a level of immersion.
Cat Lady is a horror, but an unusual one, it has certain... flavor, which is very difficult to describe.
I don't want to give too much spoilers here, but the general feature of the game is that Susan, the main character, is given a role of judge, rather than a victim. As soon as you realize this, the game becomes more a surrealistic drama, rather than a slasher. You are not surviving, you are contemplating.
Perhaps, this is personal way of seeing, I but found the game melancholic and thoughtful, and almost not scary, in the usual sense. After all, this is not a story of fantastic monsters from other world, it is a story of human monsters, of all possible kinds.
