The Cat License is a consumable item purchased from the Zoologist for 5. Using it allows a cat to move into town. Upon use, a message is displayed that reads "The license teleports away to the cat delivery service..." The Town Cat will move into town the next day at 4:30 AM if there is a home for it to move in to. It can only be used once per world and the Zoologist will not sell more than one in a world.


  • It is possible for the player to purchase multiple Cat Licenses in one world if one does not close the menu after purchasing the first one. Still, only one Cat License can be used per world.
  • The Cat License is unlocked for purchase after filling out 10% of the Bestiary, but since the Zoologist only arrives after filling out 10% of the Bestiary, it is effectively always open for purchase as long as it hasn't already been bought.
