7 purrfect video game cats

Games just wouldn't be the same without these memorable felines.

Cats are unique and mysterious creatures capable of making wonderfully entertaining pets. Along with gracing our homes with their presence, did you know cats are just as enjoyable within the realm of video games?

With the creative freedom developers are given, video game cats are able to occupy diverse roles that help them stand out just as much as their canine counterparts. To compliment our list of 7 good dogs in gaming, we felt it only fair to create a list of 7 purrfect video game cats.

Plus, news recently came out that suggests we may have another notable cat figure on our hands, this time as a companion in Overwatch. While we wait for confirmation from Blizzard regarding Overwatch’s next hero, let’s take a closer look at 7 of the most purrfect cats in video games!

Khajiit – The Elder Scrolls Series

“Khajiit has wares, if you have coin.”

Over the years, the Khajiit have become key staples of The Elder Scrolls series, and for good reason. They’re intelligent, cunning, and incredibly useful if you need to sell or purchase items.

Utilizing a sort of roving caravan, players will have little trouble locating the Khajiit and exchanging wares for coin. Additionally, should you opt to play them as a race, you’ll be able to take advantage of their natural stealth and agility.

Oh, and thievery. While the Khajiit have a bit of a bad reputation in Tamriel (as most are seen as thieves), we can’t help but love them all the same.
