Use caution before visiting Google’s main page today. The company has unveiled a new Google Doodle in celebration of Halloween, and the game is so addictive you might forget to answer the door for the trick-or-treaters.

The Magic Cat Academy involves a cat in a Hogwarts-like school of magic using a wand to ward off ghosts. In a blog post, the company said the Doodle was inspired by a real-life cat named Momo.

“The original concept for the game involved a magic cat making a soup that was so good, it raised the dead,” the blogpost says. “Connecting soup to Halloween proved too abstract, so the team shifted to the idea of a wizard school. This opened the door to a more robust world filled with interesting characters and paw-some themes.”

Play the Magic Cat Academy here. Just be sure to clear your schedule for the rest of the day.
