Colonies of Cats.

Befriend or battle the other inhabitants of the forest. Work for the glory of one of the great cat colonies or set out to adventure on your own! Become friends, lovers, or enemies with dozens of unique cats.

The Apex Hunter.

Track down creatures for a satisfying snack and pounce to secure your kill. The cats of the wild must eat to survive. Hunting is a careful balancing act; get close enough to pounce, but don't get too close or your victim may flee!

A Living World.

Seasons pass and weather shifts. Explore the forest to find the best spots to hunt. Gather herbs and berries that can help your friends (and hinder your foes!) Make your claim on the vast woodlands, swamps, and beaches.

Customize Your Cat.

Survive in style with hundreds of fur and eye color combinations. Unlock more as you play and change them whenever you'd like. Find your true favorite, accessorize to match the season, or experiment endlessly to create your perfect cat!
