Appearances

Mittens Sprite.png

In Oracle of Seasons, a Cat named Mittens plays a part in the Trading Sequence,[1] where Link must lure her down from a Tree with a Fish. In return, Link will get the Megaphone from her owner.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, Cats will attack Link while he is in Minish form. They are most prevalent around Hyrule Town. Link can Fuse Kinstones with Purry, a gray Cat that sits on top of Hyrule Town's bridge, while he is in Minish form.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, in order to buy the Slingshot from Sera's Sundries, Link must catch a fish for Sera's Cat. This is due to the Cat running away after being scolded for eating a fish intended for the family's dinner. Sera's Cat is named after the young hero. Other notable Cats include Jovani's Cat, Gengle, who is the leader of a group of Cats in Hyrule Castle Town, and Louise, Telma's Cat, who assists Link while he is in wolf form at a number of points in the game, namely during Midna's desperate hour.

In the Hidden Village, twenty Cats return to the village after Link defeats the Bulblins occupying it. The Cucco who looks after the Cats, referred to as the "Cucco Leader," asks Wolf Link to entertain the Cats in exchange for a Piece of Heart by speaking to each one of them. However, it warns him that the Cats are very forgetful and will need to be spoken to all over again if Link leaves the village.

The Cats in Castle Town and Impaz's house can be seen playing with balls which use the same model as the bombs dropped by Bomskits. Cats will also pounce and attack nearby Cuccos.

Skyward Sword

Main article: Remlit

In Skyward Sword, Cat-like creatures called Remlits roam Skyloft. At night, Remlits become aggressive enemies and will seek to harm Link. A particular Remlit named Mia belongs to Zelda and Gaepora, her father. Link can help find the Cat at the beginning of the game.

Tri Force Heroes

In Tri Force Heroes, Cats are found in various places in Hytopia. Many appear in Madame Couture's, but two are found outside, lounging on a bench and a roof, respectively. The Cat on the bench will meow when talked to without the Cheetah Costume.[2] It is to this Cat that the Boy will read Volume 6 of the Drablands Diary.[3] Apparently the Cat enjoyed listening to it.[4] When Link looks in the mirror in Madame Couture's shop, he can see a Cat sitting behind him near the rack of clothes. Strangely, however, it can only be seen in this mirror, and cannot be approached. If Link wears the Cheetah Costume, he is able to understand the language of Cats.[5][6]

Cats that sit outside on the bench west of Madame Couture's will tell Link that the Street Merchant adjusts his prices whenever he is in a good mood,[7] offering double for buying Link's Materials. These Cats also emulate Madame Couture's habit of slipping into a mix of English and French. The Cat sitting on the couch facing the Dressing Room claims to be Madame Couture's guardian, as well as the guardian of the store owner's secrets, freely gossiping about Madame Couture's relationship with her sister, Lady Maud.[8]

Since you're trying to help my best human, I'll give you some advice! The Street Merchant is super finicky, meow. When he's in a good mood, he'll pay more for the same item.

But then The Lady got mad because nobody appreciated her style enough, so she decided to leave Hytopia. I doubt she'll ever return. I really hope she finds her place in the world and true happiness. And some fish too." — Cat (Tri Force Heroes)
