Tabby (トラこ, Torako) is a peppy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name comes from the fact that she is a tabby cat. Her Japanese name comes from tora, "tiger", referring to her stripes. Her catchphrase is a portmanteau of "meow" and "wow".

Tabby is an orange cat with brown stripes. She has white tips on her paws and tail and purple eyeshadow. She often shows off her big, white teeth but does not appear to be smiling. She initially has a bone shirt on, whose design matches the brown stripes all over her body. Her pointy ears have pink in them.


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

She has a peppy personality, and loves to talk about clothes. She often catches colds and obsesses over boys, saying that she is waiting for her "knight in shining armor" and asking if the player has seen any cute boys. She may also gossip about others. She can often be quite rude to the player, for example if she is wearing one of the player's designs, she might say "So you're telling me YOU'RE the one who designed this thing?! I must have seen your name on the label and bought it without looking! That's the last time I buy one of your hideous designs!".

In other games, Tabby finds Modern Series furniture appealing and likes the Illusion flooring and wall.

In City Folk, she has To the Edge playing in her house.
