Katie is a yellow kitten with brown hair debuting in Animal Crossing: Wild World who randomly appears in town once the player's gate has been opened and a visitor from another town has been accepted. In Wild World and City Folk, she wishes to be reunited with her mother Kaitlin. In New Leaf, she asks the player to travel to a different town. Her Japanese name prior to New Leaf means "stray child," which has been changed in later versions.

In Wild World
Katie first appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World alongside her mother, Kaitlin, and will appear in the player's town crying and wishes to be reunited with her mother. She will tell the name of the town where her mother might be, which is a town the player had previously visited. The player must go to this town with Katie, in which she and Kaitlin will be reunited at the Town Gate of the other town. Katie walks slower than the player and may get left behind or fall and cry. Upon doing this, she and Kaitlin will thank the player, and after a day, either she or her mother will send the player a present in the mail. If ignored, Katie will leave after a week since she first appeared.
Despite the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection being shut down as of May 20, 2014, it is still possible for Katie to appear when connecting via DS-to-DS connection.
In City Folk
Katie returns alongside Kaitlin in Animal Crossing: City Folk, though her role in this game is not that different from her role in Wild World. She will still appear in the player's town and ask to be reunited with her mother in a town the player had already visited. Afterwards, she or her mother will send the player a present in the mail.
Due to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection being shut down as of May 20, 2014, it is no longer possible to encounter Katie in town, and the presents she gives to the player are unobtainable.
In New Leaf
Katie returns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, though she is now alone and wishes to see the multiple towns of the world, telling the player that she wants them to take her to the player's friend's town. Unlike the previous games, it can be any town. She may also say which towns she has previously visited. The player must then guide her to the Train Station and take a train with her. After exiting the train, Katie will mention that the main reason she decided to follow the player to the other town is that she is uncomfortable traveling alone. A day later, she will give the player a thank-you present. Katie no longer falls down and cries, indicating her maturity.
There is a possibility, especially if the destination town has already received Katie on the same day, that Katie may drop her ticket upon boarding the train, causing her to jump off the train and pick it up. This event causes the player to leave her behind; however, the player will still receive a thank-you present from Katie the following day, saying that she just took the next train.
If ignored, Katie will stay in the player's town for the whole day.
In New Horizons
In amiibo Festival
Katie appears as a visitor in the Board Game mode of Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival. If a player lands on a special-event space while she is visiting, she can give them a card. If the player does not have any cards, Katie draws a move card. She then asks the player if they think the next card she draws will have a higher or lower die value. If the player is correct, Katie gives the player the second card. If the player is incorrect, nothing happens. If the player has a card, Katie instead asks them to trade for a random non-move card.
In Pocket Camp
In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Katie has hosted two Garden Safari events. She first appeared as part of the Fruit Party with Katie Garden Safari event from May 4, 2018 to May 14, 2018, and then she returned for another Garden Event, Katie's Time Out, from March 29, 2019 to April 9, 2019.
If the player places Katie's Sakura Swing (only available for limited times) at their campsite, Katie will interact with it.
