Pokemon Meowth

Cats are basically man’s second best friend.

Sure, they might not wag their tails or greet you every time you come home but they’ve got better things to do. You know, like vomiting in the most inconvenient places or meowing for food even though they just ate. Cats are simple, easy (enough) to take care of and they’re good companions for those that can’t commit to a dog.

Cats also make great companions (and protagonists) in video games. We love seeing our favourite furry friends pop up in games; they’re cute and purrfectly fun to hang around with. Whether they’re there just for us to pet, or they want to take us on an adventure with them, there are some excellent video game felines. Click on through to see six of our favourite cats in video games.
