Shiro Neko San / Snowball

Everybody’s first cat!

Shiro Neko San Snowball

Physical characteristic: white

Personality: quiet

Treasure: flower-patterned collar – a small flower-patterned collar


せばすさん Sebasu San / Jeeves

I think Sebasu is short for Sebastian, which seems like a typical ‘Japanese English’ name for a butler…hahah. He always seems to appear with Sapphire San, and stays slightly longer than her.

Physical characteristic: side parting

Personality: lightning speed

Treasure: a silver pocket watch – a wind up type pocket watch. Although it’s an antique, it shows the correct time.

さふぁいあさん Sapphire San / Sapphire

Sapphire San looks so ladylike doesn’t she! She comes for the Märchen parasol and sweets tower. By the way, ‘Märchen’ means folk tale/fairy tale, which explains the new sweets garden (sorta like the gingerbread house in Hansel & Gretel) and the sweets items. She seems to always turn up with Sebasu San in tow, but leaves slightly earlier than him. She seems to have a preference for deluxe tuna bitz.

Physical characteristic: Siamese (cat)

Personality: (literally lady in a box) a girl who has led a sheltered life

Treasure: a favourite collection of poems – although the written contents are not understood, there are beautiful cat illustrations.

Don’t you think they look like the groom and bride dolls on top of a wedding cake? Well except that he has a towel over his arm like a butler hahaha.

How to get the wallpapers

You have to fulfill certain criteria to get the different wallpapers. It’s not exactly clear what the criteria are. I think it’s something to do with getting the particular cats – if you haven’t gotten the cat to your garden yet, you can’t have their wallpaper. For some of the wallpapers, you need to get the treasure/memento from certain cats to unlock a wallpaper. ( For example, Shiro Neko San / Snowball needs to have given you a momento for his wallpaper to be available. Same for Ms Fortune and Peaches). For other wallpapers you need to have the cat visited you at least 25 times.

To buy the wallpapers, go to Menu> Shop>Gallery/Wallpaper.

buy wallpepr

Here’s a look at them:

When you click one, they’ll show you the sample, the actual one will of course not have the ‘sample’ word:

Sample wallpaper

After you click ‘buy’, click the ‘save’ button. The game will automatically ‘exit’ and the picture will be in your phone’s ‘camera roll’.

Once you’ve bought the wallpaper, you can download it numerous times.

1st page wallpapers:

2nd page wallpapers (the socks one is soooo cute!! Also the 2nd one with all the different cats):

3rd page wallpapers (Yuki Neko San looks so cute with the snow bunny!):


4th page wallpapers :

You need Bengal Jack’s memento for his wallpaper. For Ms Fortune and Sassy Fran’s you need to have had them visit you 25 times to get these wallpapers.

Happy CNY!!

Happy CNY!! Since I’m showing you guys this picture, thought I’d introduce Neko Atsume’s official twitter account at the same time (if you don’t follow them already). It’s the best way of finding out the most recent news, but it also makes me very envious of all the super cute stickers and all available for Japan smart phone users and goodies over there!
