The Black Cat is a pet summoned by the Unlucky Yarn, which is dropped from the Goodie Bag during Halloween. It is a small, black cat with a hat that resembles the Wizard Hat. When the player moves too far away, it will fly upon a broom towards the player.


  • The Black Cat pet is a reference to the popular belief (dating back to the middle ages) that witches' familiars were black cats.
  • Contrary to the superstition that encountering a black cat will bring you bad luck, rare drops and item percentages will not be affected by the presence of the cat, nor will they increase, as pets do not affect these stats.
