A lazy cat is a special variant of a pet cat, which players gain access to by completing the Ratcatchers quest. After completion, players can speak to Felkrash to have her train their overgrown cat into a wily cat. After a random amount of time, usually under an hour, regardless of the amount of interactions performed, a wily cat will become a lazy cat. Lazy cats can only catch rats, and have around a 41% success rate.

Lazy cats can be trained back into wily cats by performing a random amount of interactions with them, which includes playing with the cat with a ball of wool, sending it to chase rats, and stroking it.

Training your overgrown/lazy hellcat[edit | edit source]

After completion of Ratcatchers quest, an Overgrown Cat can be trained into a wily cat. When the Wily cat eventually reverts to a Lazy cat, it can be re-transformed into a wily cat through training by catching rats (both normal and Hell-Rat versions). Players are only allowed to have one wily or lazy cat out or in bank at a time, in addition to one kitten or adult cat, and as many overgrown cats as they wish. You can however have multiple lazy/wily cats by storing them in your menagerie before training another. If, whilst attempting to train your lazy normal/hellcat into a wily cat, the cat does does not seem to transform (it should take about 25 rats), players can pick up their cat and re-drop it to reset the 'training timer', otherwise you could be training your cat for what seems an indefinite time (even hundreds of rats and 1.5hrs+ have been observed without success).

After some time, usually under an hour, a wily cat will revert to a Lazy cat. It can then be re-trained into a wily cat.

Wily and lazy cats can be named by speaking with Felkrash. The name can be a combination of any six letters or spaces, but no numbers. Note that the name will be used in the RuneScape interface for every wily and lazy cat the player has.

Players can store both lazy and wily cats in their menageries. Wily cats will not become lazy while in a menagerie.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lazy cats had a festive override wearing a red partyhat during the 2016 Christmas event. Both the item and NPC models had the override.
