A cat

The cat was the first pet released in the realm of Runescape. It is currently is one of the older aspects of the game being introduced late 2003. On its release the pet was one of the most popular items with them being seen everywhere. Although the appearance of cats in everyday Runescape activities died down with the introduction of summoning in 2008.

A player can acquire a cat by completing Gertrude's Cat and training their kitten which will take a few hours. After turning the kitten into a cat the player has many options including dyeing it purple in the miniquest, Purple Cat (which can be started after Swept Away) or selling it in West Ardougne for 100 death runes (after completing Plague City).

Players can also let it become an overgrown cat, train it into a wily cat (after completing Ratcatchers) or even turn it into a hellcat with Evil Dave's section of Recipe for Disaster.

Cats are also the focus of several quests that often involve the player speaking to cats using a catspeak amulet. The full list of cat-related quests is as follows:
