Every time you open the game, there is a chance that you may meet a wonderful moment! Getting more cats and decorating your garden will bring you more of them!
Capturing Moments is done randomly. After the player opens the app and the loading screen has finished, there is a chance they will be presented with a screen featuring a camera and prompting the player to "Press shutter quickly!" Once pressed, the drawn finger presses the shutter and a snapshot sound effect plays, as the screen changes to the preview display of the camera, revealing the captured moment. The player may then press the "Save" button to save and proceed with the game. It is possible to capture a photo you already have and, if the moment involves a cat, with a different cat; however, not all Moments can occur with all cats.
All photos in the collection are organized from the oldest to most recent photos. Each photo preview shows the moment and the exact date and time (following the player's time zone) the photo was captured. When a photo is selected, a bigger preview is displayed and the player can either delete or share the moment. The first two photos are already in the album when the player starts the game, with an additional one guaranteed shortly thereafter as part of the tutorial.
- Despite the instructions asking the player to press the shutter quickly, it does not actually matter how long it takes to do so, and the Moment will still be captured as soon as they do press it.
- The person shown driving the moving truck in the first Moment is the only human shown in-game who does not live in the player's house and is not a playable character themselves.
