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.

Occasionally, house cats are named mobs, for example Mr. Bigglesworth and Salome.

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.[1] (S&L 147) Cats prefer to sneak up on their prey. The common houscat 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.[2] (MGWS 7)

Lil Timmy

White Kitten

White Kitten

A small white cat with golden eyes. Sold by Lil Timmy, a rare spawn in Stormwind, for 60s.

Summoned by Cat Carrier (White Kitten).

This cat is a rare sight for members of the Horde, due to the difficulty of obtaining one. One would have to buy it from an Alliance member on the neutral Auction House, and can often sell even for amazingly high 1000g, despite its low purchase cost.


Black Tabby

Dropped by Combat Dalaran Spellscribe
Summoned by [Cat Carrier (Black Tabby)].

Black Tabby is a rare pet for Alliance players since Dalaran mobs are friendly to the Alliance and cannot be attacked. Also, the Dalaran Spellscribe herself is 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.


A cat with a cream body, white paws, brilliant blue eyes, and brown ears, face, legs, and tail.

The siamese cat is dropped by Cookie in the Deadmines.

As of the release of Burning Crusade, the cat may also be bought from Dealer Rashaad in Netherstorm.
