Katt is a big sister cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. She is the only big sister cat in the series. Her name relates to her species. Her catchphrase is a portmanteau of purr and pretty.

In New Horizons, Katt has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.



Artwork of Katt from Welcome amiibo.

Katt is a dark brown cat with visible blue inner ears. She has uniquely shaped eyes that look similar to glasses. She has yellow stripes on her face, arms, legs and tail, and has white paws. She has tiny fangs.


Below is a brief description of the big sister personality. For more information, click here.

Katt is a villager that falls under the big sister personality. As a big sister villager she will appear like a friendly big sister to the player, often acting tomboyish and relaxed. She will have a tendency to be blunt with the player, giving them lessons on winning and how to relax. She will admire jock villagers who share her love for sports, and lazy villagers that are laid-back and mellow. She will dislike snooty and cranky villagers that often spread rumors about other villagers.

Villager information[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Katt cannot be one of the starting villagers in the player's town.
