Welcome!

Update: Since version 1.4.5 now includes English translations, I have gone through and updated everything with the exact English text, including the English names of all the cats.

What this site is: My own personal fan site dedicated to Neko Atsume where I post information as I discover it. All the content is my own except where noted. (I’ve been spending a lot of time using Google Translate!) Since this is my own site, I’m using my own names the English given names for the cats; however, I have included the cats’ given Japanese names as well. I have included sections for Cats, Mementos, Goodies, and now Remodels.

What this site is not: A tutorial or walk-thru site. There are some really excellent how-to sites out there, and it seems pointless to duplicate what others have done. My personal favorite how-to site is How to Play Neko Atsume.

Where you can download Neko Atsume: Download for Android / Download for iOS

  1. I love your blog, just found it today! I’ve been playing Neko Atsume for several months and still have so many treasures left to acquire. Thanks for your fun blog and have a great day! πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for showing this! I really wanted to see what the yard expansion options were (saving my gold fish to get there!). Can’t wait to have more room to tempt the kitties.

  3. Thanks for collecting this information. Now i know which goodies to get to keep my favorite cat visiting. (It’s Pickles.)

  4. This blog is so great and cute! I have been playing Neko Atsume for a couple weeks now, and it’s fun to ‘see into the future,’ as far as acquiring cats and mementos and such. It’s cool of you to spend this much time recording all the information about the game πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks for the site, super useful!
    Also just a heads up tubb’s page needs fixing as right now it mirrors tabitha’s

  6. Thanks for this fun site! I just started playing Neko Atsume about a week ago, and I’m quite happy that 3 cats (Snowball, Smokey and Sunny) have left me mementos! Yippee! Can’t wait to collect all from all of the cats. Saving up those gold fish to buy the yard expansion. I didn’t know there are remodels until now, thanks to this site. Cool! Keep up the good work! Best wishes. πŸ™‚

    • Good luck on finding the cats, Pat! I have nearly all the cats, and just need 3 more!
      I used to have to get 2 more, but now there’s FROSTY! who visited once, but i never saw her, or took a photo. πŸ™

  7. Ugh! I just completed finding all the cats last week. Now they just added one more. Plus, they added around 5 new goodies to use. Who knows which one this new cat is attracted to.

  8. I think I found the new kitty!😺 It’s name is “Frosty” and it likes the “Snowy Pillow.” Got it shortly after my zen garden developed snow on the ground. It’s white with red eyes and its ears look kinda greenish brown on my device.

    On another note: is the “Arabesque Blanket” another new goodie?

  9. Fab site, found it as I’d just started collecting kitties πŸ˜€ I’ve not got them all yet, purrhaps the new one is Santa claws 😸

    Do the remodels give you the back yard to place kitty stuff too?

    • No and WHAT?!?
      1. the new cat is CERTAINLY not Santa Claws, but i thought that too πŸ˜›
      2. WHAT DO YOU MEAN? im sure i can help you though…
      πŸ˜€

  10. On your new goodies page you forgot the blanket! It’s one of my new favorite goodies. πŸ™‚ I love your page and how it’s like a dictionary for toys/cats. It’s saved in my favorites on my iPhone for quick access.

  11. Thank you so much for this site ! I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t attract Lady Meow Meow but then you brought it to my attention that she only eats more expensive food! Thanks to you I now have all the cats <3 Best of luck and thank you for this site!

    • I already got the new rare cat!! It is FROSTY and you need to have snowy pillow to get it.

      I have post the picture on my twitter/instagram account (@rayesmara) or my blog khikomunitas.wordpress.com if you want to look at it for a while.

      It wear a scarf and look like a Shirakawago traditional house roof.

  12. new to this site, thanks for the site!! now I know what do I should buy for attracts cats… btw u must have such a much silver fish and golden fish bcs all of the goodies… I want my neko atsume be like u, but yeah maybe I just need to have more patience bcs I’m new to neko atsume lol I’ve played it for just 3 weeks lol xD

  13. I REALLY think that the name ‘Tubbs’ is mean. I call the cat Picadily. Cute, and nice to the cats.

  14. Pinkymoon, did u just say you have the new cat? WHAT FOOD DOES SHE LIKE??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  15. Oh, and Awesome, why did u spell COFFEE instead of CAFE?!?!
    By that I mean it is NOT Coffee!
    πŸ˜›

  16. CHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    PICKLES IS MY FAVORITE CAT TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    YAY!
    πŸ™‚

  17. ( Note: I am actually Tilly, but I changed the name)
    Frosty must be real fussy about his food. I tried Ritzy bitz, Frisky Bitz, sashimi, but no duluxe tuna, so probably that.
    PS: I am only eight, so don’t frown at my spelling! πŸ™ πŸ˜‰

  18. Does frosty still come after Christmas , because I got the game two days ago and I would love to get him

  19. Finally got Kathmandu to show up for the Lacquered Bowl too. But I got a little bonus with it. Snowball is standing in the bowl while Kathmandu is still looking at it.

  20. Is there a way to send pictures to you in order to prove some of the rare cat scenes I discovered?

    I’ve been playing this game on 2 devices. Like I stated before, I found Frosty on the purple pillow(on my phone). Now I found Frosty in the bureau with pot with a straw(?) hood on(on my tablet).

    • Hi, S. Voltz! I’ve seen Frosty in the Bureau with Pot and on the Snowy Pillow, too. He wears the straw hood when he is outside but not when he is inside.

  21. It’s strange to find a rare cat like Frosty on 3 different items. Usually, rare cats only like 2 items at the most. Frosty’s list: Snowy Pillow, Bureau with Pot, and Purple Pillow.

  22. Oh, I forgot. If possible, do you want me to try to email a photo of Kathmandu and Snowball with Lacquered Bowl? You should have my email in your system from writing my comments. If “yes”, please contact me in my email. I don’t do Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr,…

    You can put it on your site if you want.

  23. Kathmandu left me a memento – an Elegant Paint Brush! I had Ritzy bits out and he played with the Temari Ball as always.

  24. Actually Frosty is attracted to almost every pillow, cushion, the large cooling mat, and the thick cooling pad. However, some pieces of furniture are more likely to lure her than others.

    • Quite true. Where as, on my phone, Frosty likes the purple pillow. On my tablet, Frosty likes the Sakura Pillow. And… is it just me, but I think Frosty only comes out when it snows. What happens when spring and summer comes?

        • Update: I discovered that Frosty WILL show up without snow on the ground. I got a picture of Frosty on the snowy pillow with its hat on, and not one drop of snow on the ground. NO snow is needed!

  25. What food do you need to get frosty? I’ve had the snowy pillow out for a couple of days now with no luck.

    • I like to use sashimi. But I think the main problem with trying to get Frosty is that there has to be snow on the ground.

  26. Hey admin! Today Frosty came to yard for silk crepe pillow! I thought only Saint Purrtrick who likes it xD you can email me or mention me in @docbyun if you want to see the photo πŸ™‚

  27. I love that game.
    When i wake up ,
    And i see tubbs ,
    i close the app to cry in my room.

    But i like the game and your blog.

    • My husband has become used to me suddenly yelling out, “Goddamn it, Tubbs!” at all hours of the day and night.

  28. Thanks so much for this great site. I don’t play games, like ever, but my daughter knew I’d be addicted as soon as I tried Neko Atsume. Just started this week so I’m busy collecting kitties and adding fun stuff to the yard expansion. Need to stop my spending spree, though, so I can remodel. πŸ™‚ I appreciate the time you’ve taken to catalogue the cats, goodies, mementos, etc. Most informative!

  29. Did you know that Japan is selling items related to Neko Atsume? They seem to be very popular and sell out quickly. I recently purchased a plushie of Peaches(Cream-San in Japan) that doubles as a screen cleaner.

  30. thank you for this website. I love this game. it’s the only one I play. I’ve been trying to get Frosty to come to my yard with the snowy pillow and bureau with pot, but no luck. So I’m going to buy the purple pillow to see if he’ll come visit.

    I also have a question. I have both the modern and zen remodels. Is there a way to expand these yards any further or is this the size they remain?

    again, thank you for your site 😻

    • Frosty seems to show up only when there’s SNOW on the ground. And I usually use sashimi for food. But don’t be surprised if it still takes many, many hours for Frosty to show up on a snow day. The snowy pillow is still your best bet to use. But, on rare occasions, Frosty has also been on other pillows.

  31. Hello! Thanks for so wonderful page. I like so much the app.

    Now, back to business: The “Billy the Kitten” link in “Cats” section is linked wrong. Its linked to Bandit.

  32. Hi! I came across your site and just wanted to let you know its very cute and helpful.

    I saw that you wanted a way to get the app on the kindle fire without rooting. I used this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAIBOXzeEk4

    Just follow it and you’ll get google play on the kindle and will be able to download it from the app store. Hope this helps!

  33. I got a memento from Frosty today! Which is surprising because she had only visited me 4 time! It was a thaw-proof snowman!

    Also frosty mainly seems to come to the silk crepe pillow. As someone else already pointed out/suggested, I think any pillow will do!

  34. I know how to get it on the Kindle Fire! Download a separate appstore like 1Mobile Market. It’s free, no viruses, and works.

  35. I got a curious picture of Breezy on the Sunken Fireplace. His head was facing downward like he fell asleep with his face on the ground. Has anyone else seen any cat doing that? Or was it a glitch on my game? Because when I checked again a minute later, Breezy was in a normal pose with his feet tucked under.

  36. I absolutely love the info on your site!! It has helped me attract almost ALL of the rare cats!! I have photos of everyone except Peaches and Frosty now. I keep checking back here to make sure I don’t miss out on anything new. Thanks for doing such a great job and making this so much more fun!! πŸ™‚

  37. Shadow has visited 129 times but I haven’t gotten his memento yet. Is anyone else having this problem?

  38. It happened again. Just like Breezy last night on my phone, I found Shadow on the Sunken Fireplace, face looking downward and feet tucked under. This time it was on my tablet. And like before, after exiting the game for just a moment, Shadow was back to normal when I went back.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

  39. Everyones complaining about getting frosty, but that was the second rare cat I got. (first was saint purr trick, but soon they were both in my yard <3)

  40. Did you know that I found saint purrtrick in the kotasu, I thought he only used the silk crepe pillow !

  41. Just realised how stupid I looked , It said on saint purrtricks fact file that he uses the kotasu :\

  42. Hi, really appreciate that you’re taking time out of your day to blog about Neko. It’s great reading about other cat fanatics’ times with this game. Cheers!

  43. Xerxes IX likes the new Royal Bed. Got both Ganache & Apricot this morning. Too many items to buy, not enough fish!

  44. Apricot is Cream Tora-san (Cream Stripe) & Ganache is Choco-san.
    I need to collect Sapphire and Jeeves in order to see the Japanese writing on them.

  45. Finally got Sapphire & Jeeves. Simply put, Sapphire is Sapphire-San in japanese. Jeeves, on the other hand, is little more difficult. He is basically pronounced Sebasu-san. In my opinion, it means “Mr. Service.” I might be wrong.

  46. Hi! If you’re still looking for the Japanese names, they are KurΔ«mutora-San (Cream Tiger; Apricot) Choco-San (Chocolate, Ganache) Sebasu-San (Sebastian, Jeeves) and Safuaia-San (Sapphire, Sapphire).

    I was lucky enough to get Jeeves and Sapphire this morning with some very expensive food- Deluxe Tuna Bitz. But it was worth it, because they are so adorable together. I love them.

  47. On Jeeves & Sapphire’s 5th visit, Jeeves has already presented me with a “Silver Pocket Watch!”

  48. Apricot also likes the Choco Cornet Tunnel. And looks like a darn adorable snail in it. πŸ˜‰ I’m still trying to get Peaches to show up so I can see her. I’ve tried everything. I knew I’d see all 4 new cats before her.
    I am sad there is no Tubbs wallpaper. I’d have bought that!
    I really enjoy this blog, so thank you. πŸ˜‰

  49. Hello, I love your app and all the kitties.
    I was wondering, if I buy the bureau, does it go where the background furniture is or do i have to put it in the middle of the floor?

    thank you

  50. I just completed all the cats and momentos AGAIN! But I still haven’t unlocked the last 3 wallpapers (Peaches, Ginger, and Patches). Any ideas on what I’m missing?

    • Update: I just unlocked the last 3 wallpapers. I’m not sure how, but I can rule out some rumors. 1: You do NOT need to buy every item in the shop. There are many items that I have not bought. 2: You do NOT need to fill up to 18 photos for every cat. Both Sapphire & Jeeves have less than 10 photos each. 3: You do NOT need a particular number of photos of the cats that might be in the wallpapers to unlock. I haven’t seen Peaches in weeks, and her wallpaper was just unlocked.

      I hope this information helps.

  51. This website is the best. I’m so glad I searched up ‘Xerexes IX’ otherwise, I would’ve never ever found this website. It is a bit hard to wait for the mementos, but that’s not lauriealfaro.com’s fault. So yeah. I love the website!

  52. I notice that Sassy does not like the latest model. Whatever food I put down,it can’t be attracted.

  53. Jeeves just gave me a silver pocket watch on his 18th visit! Also, I love your website! I have everything in the game except a few mementos and the candy remodel.

    • I love this game.. I am sorry that you can no longer play.. begin again..a from your furry friends..see what happens..now that you know so much..this is life.. Judie

  54. Sorry to hear about your game problem. I hope it never happens to anyone else. I have set up my app so that some of my game data is saved on SD card. For those unfamiliar with this, go to SETTINGS, then APPLICATION MANAGER, and then select Neko Atsume. Tap “Move to SD card.” Maybe this might save your work. I’m not positive that this will work because, fortunately, I have not had the need to test this yet.

  55. Why does it have to be this way,
    I enjoyed your website so much, I don’t care if you find a way to get back neko atsume!
    Same thing happened to my friend. Her memory got all lost! Hope you find a way!

  56. That memento looks like the mascot for the fukuoka hawks baseball team… So maybe another baseball playing cat in the future? Lol. Joe’s looks like hes a hanshin tiger fan so i dont think it would be his’s…

  57. I had a weird thing happen. A black and light blue fan showed up next to a snowy pillow and now no cats are coming to my yard. I put out new items but still no cats. I have been playing for awhile and I just noticed a brand new car. Does anybody know about this fan and why no cats will come?

  58. Just got the rare one! He is the “pirate” Bengal Jack. He likes his LUXURY TREASURE-BOX, and I guess he likes Bonito Bits.

  59. Since yesterday’s update (14tg July 2016) I have had the same 2 cats in my yard for over 24 hours. The food has not needed replacing and no new cats are visiting.
    Is this a bug with the new update?? I don’t know what to do – I don’t want to lose my fishes or cats by deleting the app and starting again.
    Has this happened with anyone else? Shopping etc. still works and the new goodies/cats can be seen in the shop/catbook.

  60. True to the Pirate Code, Bengal Jack presented me with an Old Map on his 12th visit.

    And once again, I have all the momentos until the next major update.

  61. Ugh so sorry about losing your game but glad you are now catching up.

    I have a question that googling is not helping to locate an answer- can I be the only one with this problem? I updated the new version on my ipad, and the new cats (except the rare one) have shown up, and the new decor (seashells, piggy bank, etc.) show too. However none of the new goodies are in the goodie pages! Any idea what is going on and how I can fix it?

  62. I found out how to get some of the new wallpapers. Need to put out the fish bowl for one. Bengal Jack wallpaper will show up when Bengal Jack gives you his momento. With the other wallpaper, you need to layout all the buckets, the planter, and all the pots (clay, pickling, & honey). I added earthenware pot & rice kettle for extra measure.

  63. I know what that mysterious momento is! It’s the mascot of the Soft Bank Hawks baseball team in Fukuoka, Japan! They were the champions last year. Baseball is HUGE over there! When I did an image search, I came up with this website: https://tcrf.net/Neko_Atsume:_Kitty_Collector

    I wonder if it was possibly going to be Joe DiMeowgio’s momento?

  64. I had a weird thing happen. I opened the camera to take a picture but when I did that, the cats disappeared from the yard! I was able to take blank pictures of just the yard. Odd.
