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.

If you’re looking for the new rare cat Whiteshadow (as of Dec. 15, 2016), here’s how you get him! He will be added directly here soon.

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!
