Note: Before leaving Gertrude's house, pick up some doogle leaves to the south if you don't have a seasoned sardine already to save time later on.

Speak to Gertrude at her house west of Varrock, south of the Cooks' Guild, she will tell you that she has lost her cat, Fluffs. Gertrude will ask you to go and speak to her two children, Shilop and Wilough in Varrock Square.

Go to the Varrock Square and talk to either of the two boys. They will tell you about their secret playground, but they will not give you the location until you pay them. The player must pay them 100 coins.

Go to the Lumber Yard, north-east of Varrock, bring a raw sardine, a doogle leaf, and a bucket of milk.

Fluffs, located on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] in the Lumberyard.

The secret playground (Lumber Yard)[edit | edit source]

Items needed: Seasoned sardine OR raw sardine and doogle leaves, and a bucket of milk.
Items recommended: Lumberyard teleport and Varrock teleport. An axe to complete an easy Varrock Diary task.

At the Lumber Yard, climb-over the broken fence on the southern side. Go to the middle of the Lumber Yard and climb up the ladder. There you will find Gertrude's cat, Fluffs. First, try to pick-up the cat, she will hiss at you. Use a bucket of milk on her and try to pick her up again. She will still hiss. Use the doogle leaves on the raw sardine to make a seasoned sardine. Give Fluffs the seasoned sardine. Once again you will not be able to pick her up because the cat seems afraid to leave and in the distance you can hear kittens mewing...

Locations of all crates where kittens can potentially be found.

Go down the ladder and search through the nearby crates with the yellow "Search crate" option with the yellow "Mew!" above them. Searching the same crate repeatedly will not work. Keep searching until you find Fluffs' kitten; click on continue and the kitten appears in your inventory. If the kitten does not appear, log out and back in to trigger the event. Do not drop the kitten as you normally would, it will run away and you will have to find it again. With the kitten in your inventory, go back up the ladder and use it on Fluffs. Fluffs and the kitten run off home. Return to Gertrude to complete the quest.

Congratulations! Quest complete!

Note: A ring of charos (a) will allow you to chose the colour of your kitten upon quest completion.
