Neko Atsume rare cats guide - collect those cats!

Getting rare cats to visit is Neko Atsume's "end game" and it's kind of a pain.

A cat isn't a cat isn't a cat in Neko Atsume -- some cats are more special (and definitely cuter) than others. 

Neko Atsume's rare cats are not only more difficult to get to visit your home than the standard kitties, but they also generally are much cuter and more interesting than your average cat. Getting pictures of them doesn't just fill up your album: it also fills up your heart.

Most rare cats are easier to lure to your home by using expensive cat food, starting with the high quality crisp cat food (costs 30 sardines for 3 bowls), all the way up to sashimi. Some cats simply expect and require the finer things in life. If you're aiming for the cats listed here (sans Peaches, who is not a rare cat), it's time to start investing in expensive kitty food.

This guide's a little drab, huh? Why don't you take a look at our adorable, updated, and new Neko Atsume rare cats guide that totally blows this one out of the water.

Each cat's personality trait, liked items, and food are listed.

If you're looking for a memento list, don't worry: I have you covered there too with my Neko Atsume memento guide! But honestly you might be more interested in my all cats guide list which -- you guessed it! -- lists every cat with what they need to visit. And lastly, a quick look at Neko Atsume's remodels.

After collecting all the mementos, I've moved onto other kitty-centric games on my Android phone. Check out some of these other awesome free cat games to play while you wait for more Neko Atsume rare cats to collect.

Good luck getting these kitties to come pay you a visit. Nya!

Joe DiMeowgio

Clearly loves baseball. Will come visit no matter the food that's out if you have a baseball laid out for him. Joe DiMeowgio is a team player and has a power level of 28.

Guy Furry

Can show up when either the stove or the glass flower vase are out. Guy Furry is an artisan and he has a power level of 30. He'll eat anything for the Glass Vase but won't eat Thrifty Bits if the Space Heater is out.

Saint Purrtrick

This cat clearly likes to be comfortable based on its item preference. Saint Purrtrick is awe-inspiring, has a power level of 222, and will eat anything.


He isn't interested in your toys or furniture, only delicious food! Tubbs is a finnicky feaster with a power level of 130.


Frosty just needs to get comfortable. This cat seems to like anything but Thrifty Bits, is sensitive, and has a power level of 5.

Ms. Fortune

Ms. Fortune needs a deluxe house set up before she'll come visit. She isn't picky about what she eats, has a charismatic personality, and a 20 power level.

Bob the Cat

This kitty has a need to climb and wants the Cat Metropolis before coming to your house. Bob is outdoorsy, will eat anything, and has a power level of 40.

Mr. Meowgi

Mr. Meowgi likes to do two things: train and sleep. He isn't picky about what he eats, has a mentoring personality and a power level of 250.

Lady Meow-Meow

This cool cat's all about relaxing. She demands a high quality hammock to visit and will eat anything but Thrifty Bits. Has the disposition of a diva and a 100 power level.


Kathmandu is decked out in classical attire and will eat any food but Thrifty Bits (and won't eat Frisky Bits if you have the Laquered Bowl out). He has a refined personality and a power level of 150.

Sassy Fran

Sassy Fran is a sassy cat! She'll visit when you have anything but Thrifty Bits out and a cardboard cafe. She's enthusiastic and has a power level of of 180.

Xerxes IX

A snobby cat! Prince-san's personality is regal, and he requires the high quality cushion to stop by your house. He will eat anything, surprisingly. His power level is 70.

Conductor Whiskers

A clear train enthusiast, Conductor Whiskers will stop by when you pander to his train hobby. He has a vigilant personality with a power level of 50 and will eat anything.

Chairman Meow

Chairman Meow is boorish and seems to be a bit shell-shocked! He'll eat anything and his power level is 111.

Ramses the Great

A Siamese cat, Ramses likes to be reminded of home with the Tent (Pyramid) and will eat anything but Sashimi. Is a total riddler with a power level of 230.

Billy the Kitten

Billy needs a Cowboy Hat and the any food to visit your garden. He has a nihilistic personality. His power level is 250. Whew!

Senor Don Gato

Don Gato looks suspiciously like Puss in Boots -- from his adorable mustache to his rapier hungry for stuffed mouse. Has a scheming personality, will eat anything, and a power level of 30.


  A noble kitty, Sapphire prefers the finer things in life: quality treats and staying out of the sun. She is naive with a power level of 20, and will eat anything other than Thrifty Bits. She always visits with Jeeves.


 Jeeves appears to be Sapphire's butler and he is never seen without her -- both always visit together. Jeeves is a nimble cat with a power level of 210 and eats the same foods as Sapphire.


Peaches is not really classified as a rare cat, but is very difficult to actually see. She likes a wide variety of items and has a capricious personality and a power level of 45.

    another cat that's near-impossible to see is Apricot. they've got the same coloring as Peaches, but with a different pattern. Apricot seems to eat whatever, and uses most everything Peaches does.
  • Aly_7478
    Peaches likes the navy blue cube as well
  • Tubs info
    Tubbs only eats outdoor food because he can't climb up to the higher indoor part, he's too fat?

    I'm having trouble getting Rascal! I know he is not a rare cat, I have most of the rare. Any help with Rascal would be appreciated.
  • narshy_6406
    For me, Peaches comes almost everyday when I have the Fairy-tale Parasol out. It has been their favorite item. I have it out with the Deluxe Tuna Bits(kinda expensive but it works!)

    I've also seen Peaches on Cardboard Choo-Choo, two times actually.
  • Evie_4655
    You can also edit the cats names. Just click on the cat in the yard, click the name and you can edit.
  • Evie_4655
    Just a minor correction- Ramses is a sphynx, not a siamese.
  • LemurQueen
    I've attracted Peaches with the paper umbrella and the marble slab as well.

  • Flyhanel
    For billy I have the hat out but what is meant by the 30 sardine cat food?
  • Joyiee
    the 30 sardine food is Frisky Bitz because it costs 30 sardines
  • Ashley_6023
    Peaches also comes with the macroon
  • FAS_5805
    I also found peaches in the bereu with pot, the heating stove and the glass vase

  • Kaye_9604
    You don't need the Sardine as food for Billy the Kitten. Frisky Bitz worked for me.
