Thanks for your suggestion - I have attempted to set up the object angle but still seem to be hitting a brick wall.
I currently have a location box sprite set up that the cat sprite moves to when clicked. Once the cat sprite reaches that location the location box sprite moves off screen.
Here is what I currently have set up - I must be missing something simple.
I want the cat sprite to move either up, down, left or right and not on a diagonal and then animate in the direction of movement.
