Madam MeowMeow is a character in Link's Awakening.[1][note 1] She is the proud owner of BowWow and YipYip, and an apparent lover of Chain Chomps.


Madam MeowMeow is often found boasting about BowWow's fur coat in her home located in Mabe Village.[3] In addition to BowWow, she owns two other smaller Chain Chomps. One lives in the house with her, and another, YipYip, lives in the small hut attached to the side of her house.[4]

When Link returns with the Full Moon Cello from Tail Cave, her beloved BowWow is "dognapped" by Moblins,[5] Link must go to the Moblin Cave and get him back from the King Moblin. Upon returning to her with BowWow, Madam MeowMeow will ask Link to take him for a walk.[6] After Link completes Bottle Grotto, he can bring back BowWow to Madam MeowMeow who will reward him with a kiss that fully refills his Heart Meter.[7]
