House cat

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A house cat is a small type of feline that is seen around some NPCs and most of which can be purchased as companions from Donni Anthania in the Elwynn Forest. One type can be purchased from Lil Timmy in Stormwind. After centuries of domestication, these furry critters inhabit nearly every human nation in the Eastern Kingdoms.[1]

Occasionally, house cats are named mobs, for example Mr. Bigglesworth and Salome. Twinkle, the white house cat, wanders near Falcon Watch in Hellfire Peninsula.

As of Patch 5.0.4, all house cats will now meow when clicked.

    • The Black Tabby was a rare pet for Alliance players, before the Cataclysm, when they only dropped from Combat Dalaran Spellscribes. Dalaran mobs are friendly to the Alliance and could not be attacked. Also, the Dalaran Spellscribe herself was a rare mob.
    • Prior to Patch 1.6, this cat was known as the Maine Coon, but this was changed because the game's Profanity Filter censored the word "coon" for also being a derogatory term for people of African descent.

In the RPG

The RPG Icon 16x36.png This section contains information from the Warcraft RPG which is considered non-canon.

Many cats cross into the Emerald Dream on a regular basis. While their bodies sleep, their twitching paws and quivering whiskers signify they are quite active once they cross between planes.[2] Cats prefer to sneak up on their prey. The common housecat can climb, jump, and even balance well. They are able to hide well in areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth. They are often found on temperate plains. Many are either domesticated or solitary.[3]
