Neko Atsume doesn’t get many updates, but when it does, all the cat collectors come back to try to get a glimpse of the game’s new cats. Just like last year we’ve gotten another update in winter, and this one adds yet another rare cat.
So who is this update’s lone rare cat? A lone hunter, a master of stealth… Whiteshadow the ninja cat! A few cats with unique requirements have been added to the game over the past year or so, but getting him to visit is totally different from every other cat.. though it’s not all that difficult.
To get Whiteshadow to visit you need one of three things:
- Bonito Bitz (7 Gold Fish) or
- Sashimi (5 Gold Fish) or
- Deluxe Tuna Bitz (12 Gold Fish)
What’s unique about this cat is he does not directly interact with any of the items you have set out; instead, it’s only interested in eating your food and hiding out around your house. And he does it in style.
He may be a ninja, but he will come to any house remodel as long as you have the food listed above out for him to eat. He does not need the Zen remodel to visit your home, though he is most suited to it! He will make an appearance in different spots depending on the remodel you are currently using, so mix it up to see where he hides in or around your house.
Since Whiteshadow does not interact directly with the items you lay out, his profile says the goodies he’s using are “Espionage activity” and “Scouting mission“. He seems to be scouting out your house and spying on you (or the other cats). He is a ninja, after all.
With one of his favorite foods and some patience, you too will be able to catch a glimpse of this unique cat with an elusive personality and power level of 195. With luck you’ll be able to get his memento: his prized Ninja Costume. Good luck!
