Purrl is a snooty, cat villager. She appears in all games from the Animal Crossing series. Calicoes have a myth of being a lucky type of cat, so Purrl can be suited as her name. Her name sounds similar to both the noise that a cat makes, "purr," and a gemstone prized for its elegance and shine, "pearl," referring to her "shiny and refined"-based personality. Similarly, Purrl's Japanese name is the hiragana form of the kanji 玉 (tama?), meaning "jewel." Her favorite saying, "let them drink cream," is a reference to “Let them eat cake”, a famous quote uttered by French noble-lady Marie Antoinette, although historical records have proven this to have never been said by her specifically.

Purrl is a multicolored calico cat - creamy white with mahogany brown and ginger olive patches. She has light lavender inside her ears and her initial clothing in Animal Crossing is the Deep Blue Shirt. In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, her initial clothing is the Asian Shirt, and in Animal Crossing: New Leaf she starts with the Periwinkle Tee. There are ebony black spots on the back of her head, arms, tail, and legs as well. She also has white tips on her paws, known as "socks". Her circular eyes have well-defined lower lashes, and pupils which look upwards. This latter trait gives her a somewhat airheaded appearance, and thus may cause the player to mistake her for a peppy villager.


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

As a snooty villager, Purrl will appear uptown, classy, and chic. With this, however, she will appear rude, belittling, and snobbish when talking to the player or other villagers in the town, usually criticizing their dress sense or fashion. When talking to the player enough times, she will befriend them but still remain subtly rude. As with all snooty villagers, she has an interest in clothes over other hobbies. She will have problems socializing with other villagers, usually lazy villagers by disagreeing with their choice of lifestyle or getting offended by a jock villager, who has questioned her physical fitness.
