|The cat is one of the basic species available for villager creation. Modeled after the domestic short-haired cat, it features a long, thin tail, a fluffy chest, and cheek fur which forms a fluffy point. However, some colors feature an altered base with longer fur, differing ears, and differing facial features depending on the breed it is based on.|
- The cat was one of the four original species planned for the release of Furvilla, along with the wolf, the dragon, and the fox. The rabbit and horse were not added until later in development.
- Although the cat is based on the smaller domestic cat, some small wild cats have been included with its base.
- The original design for the cat's default model featured a sarcastic expression and delicately styled fur, with eyes sassily averted from the viewer and a knowing smirk. The sketch was later changed for the purpose of "leaving room for the player to develop their villager's character". The new sketch, which is the basis for the cat's default model today, gave the cat bigger, more benign eyes and shorter, slightly scruffier fur, but the crossed arms from the original sketch remained. 
- On August 30 2016, the Black Cat was added.
