Part 1


:::How To Raise Your Kitten:::




-PLEASE NOTE- I would like to let you know that you do NOT have to feed the Kitten until you receive the speech interface warning you that it is hungry. Feeding it when it *meows* is a waste of food; trust me you WILL see it.






If you manage to avoid seeing the message, a few minutes later another warning will appear saying, "I think its REALLY hungry!"






Feed it NOW or it WILL run away and you will receive this message: "Your cat has run off to look for food."






Raising your Kitten:


Food and drinks for kittens and cats:


Kittens can be fed any fish, cooked or uncooked (except for seasoned sardines - Those are only used during Gertrude"s Cat Quest. Also note that seaweed, edible or otherwise, is not a fish).

Rats - Kittens, Cats and Wiley Cats are able to eat and catch small rats (the ones that don"t show up on the mini map), as well as clockwork mice (explained later in the guide)



Ways to give Kittens attention:


Stroking - Simply stroke your Kitten to give it attention.

Balls of Wool - Use a Ball of Wool with your Kitten to give it attention.

Cat toy you receive after completeing A Tail of Two Cats. Your cat will pounch on it occasionally.

Rat Pole, obtained from Rat Catchers quest. It keeps track of the amount of rat your feline has caught.

Rat Pits in Adrounge (more about this later)

You can also get a neat looking Cat Training Medal from Gertrude by having your Kitten/Cat kill 100 Rats. *NOTE* IT DOES NOTHING BUT LOOK NICE!






Part 2


:::Important Facts About Kittens:::




1. Your cat should no longer disappear and reappear in your inventory. Jagex changed it. If it does, its just a glitch.


2. Your kitten cannot go through gates and doors with you! BUT you do not have to pick it up. It WILL reappear next to you when its off the map.


3. Your Kitten/Cat WILL go with you if you teleport by using spells, or an Amulet/Ring. Your Kitten will also go up ladders and on boats with you.


4. If you die with your Kitten/Cat, you will lose it, forever.


5. When you buy a new cat from Gertrude, if you wear your ring of charos (a)*activated* you can choose the color of your kitten.


6. Overgrown cats of the same color stack. :-)

It will take approx. 2-4 hours, of being on the ground, for your cat to grow from Kitten to cat, and another 2-4 hours from a Cat to an Overgrown Cat.





Part 3


:::The *Cat* and *Overgrown Cat* Stages:::




The *Cat* stage:


-When your Kitten grows into a Cat, you will no longer receive the "I think its hungry" message. There is no need to feed it; just give it attention to make it grow.


Now that your Kitten is a Cat, you can either go to West Ardougne to sell it to a Civilian for 100 death runes; or you can keep it until it turns into an Overgrown Cat.


*With the ring of charos (a) you can now choose which color of cat you buy from Gertrude. There are 6 different colors/combinations to choose from.



The *Overgrown Cat* stage:


-These cats no longer need your attention. *Meaning no need to pet it, play with it, or feed it.*


You can get another Kitten from Gertrude for 100Gold Without getting rid of your Overgrown Cat, and/or, you can now go to West Ardougne and sell your Overgrown Cat for 100 Death runes.




:::The *Wiley Cat* and *Lazy Cat* stage:::


-After completing the rat catchers quest you are given the oppertunity to turn an overgrown cat into a wiley cat, and give it a name. (Speak to Felkrash in the Port Sarim Rat Pits)


Wiley cats have heightened abilities. They need to have plenty of exercise, via chasing rats, butterflies and kalphite larva or they will become fat and lazy.


-Talking to a another wiley cat with your own wiley cat out gives you the ability to learn hints about whos cat is stronger. Usually the cat who caught the most mice will claim to be the best cat. Cat speak amulet is required of course. Make sure you do not agree with the rival cat when the rival cat claims to be better than yours. *I do not know what it says if you agree, I just think it would hurt your cat"s feelings :-P




Lazy cats are wileys that you neglect



Lazy cats can be retrained by taking them out and allowing them plenty of time to catch rats and get exercise.





Part 4


:::The *Hell Cat* stage:::



Hell Cats:


Hellcats can be obtained from the quest Recipe for Disaster. They have nearly all the same characteristics of a normal cats, despite the fact that they"re red and have very long teeth.


After finishing the first part of Recipe for Disaster, you must do the Evil Dave subquest. Once you get to his mom"s house, she will explain you need to make his favorite stew, and that the hellrats took her spice. Simply have your cat catch 7 and they will transform into a hellcat.


It seems that Hellcats need a bit more attention then normal cats, but I"m still not certain if you can have more than one at a time. I"m nearly positive you can"t, though.


All cats can be a hellcat. That meens: Wily, Lazy, Overgrown, Cats, and kittens can *all* be hellcats.


Feeding your cat milk will turn it back to normal.






Part 5


:::The Rat Pits:::


There are four different rat pits you can access after doing the Rat Catchers quest.


Rat pits for kittens are in Adrounge.

Rat pits for "Cats" are in West Varrock.

Rat Pits for Overgrown cats are in Keldagrim.

Rat pits for Wiley cats are in Port Sarim.

-Each ratpit caters for a different stage in your cat"s development.


-Rules may vary between pit, however the base rules are the same.


-Two players agree to duel against each other and set a wager which the winner receives at the end of the match.


-To win a ratpit challenge a set number of rats must be killed. The player whose cat achieves this first will be declared the winner. However, if your cat dies or runs away from the fight the opposing player will then win.


-If your cat dies while in battle, you will not get it back, so choose your tactics wisely!!!


-When inside the ratpits, talk to the gamblers for rules and information on fighting and training your kitten, cat, overgrown, or wiley cat.


-Bets are for 100 gps min up to 20k max.


-Wear your amulet of catspeak so you can tell your cat to take care of itself while in the fight (that is the safe way to make sure your cat will not die!)


-If you fail to bring a cat speak amulet then no bonuses will be given to the cats and retreating will not be an option for the cat.




The options (Advice) you can give your cat before entering a fight:




1. Just take care of yourself


-Gives addition to the defensive bonus of the cats but will cause the cat will also retreat from the battle if its hp drops to 15% Not particularly useful when winning stakes but would definitely help increase cat morale as any battle would improve your cat given that your cat does not die.




2. Stay in as long as you can



-Same defensive bonus as the 1st option but will cause the cat to retreat at a much lower hp level (probably 5-10%). Also good to train cats with but if your cat is experienced it may be better to switch to this mode of battle for your cat.




3. No guts no glory



-Increases to attack level will cause your cat to hit mice more accurately but the cat will not be given an option to retreat. If you trained your cat well, then it will most likely not die in this style. Still, there is a slight possibility of death in a worse case scenario but highly unlikely if taught well in mice hunting tactics.




4. Go bezerk



-Increases in both attack and strength but with a slight decline in defense. This mode is for those who staked the maximum amount and wish to obtain victory at whatever the costs. If your cat is not trained thoroughly for this mode than it will surely die. May even have a zamorak effect where attack level may be drained as well. For those who truly train cats to be "wiley" fighting machines and not for domesticated purposes.





Part 6



:::Clockwork Cats, Mice and Cat Beds:::


With the Construction Skill you are able to make Clockwork Cats and Mice.


To obtain a clockwork cat you must either buy one from another player or make one.


A clockwork cat does not require feeding and will not chase rats. Clockwork cats do nothing but follow you around.


Clockwork mice are also available by making them, or buying them from other players.


Once you have a clockwork mouse you can get your cat (unless it"s a clockwork cat) to chase the mouse. If your cat catches the mouse the mouse will be destroyed.


To make both clockwork cats and mice, you must have:


A workshop, level 42 Construction, and level 85 Crafting for cats.


A workshop, level 42 construction, and level 33 Crafting for mice.
