All about Neko Atsume


special cat

みかづきさん/Mikazuki San/Hermeowne

Mikazuki San comes for the egg night bed, perching on top of out even when other cars are inside. Could the Japanese name have something to do with Mikazuki Munechika? Hermeowne of course is from Hermione (Harry Potter). I had bonito bitz out when she came.

Personality: quiet / docile

Physical characteristic: wizard hat

Memento: small glass bottle – there is soft and tiny powder inside


しのぶさん Shinobu San / Whiteshadow

Shinobu San seems to like sashimi and the deluxe tuna bitz. He doesn’t play with the items but appears somewhere in the background.

ろじゃーさん Roger San / Bengal Jack

I much prefer Bengal Jack’s Japanese name – Roger, which I think is more appropriate for a pirate 🙂

roger bengal jack

Personality: tendency towards water

Physical characteristic: pirate

Treasure: an old map – a discolored goat skin map

Roger comes for the red treasure chest and seems to like Bonito Blitz.

I find it funny when there’s a cat in the red treasure chest, it looks like Roger “discovered” cat treasure! Haha


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.

And here he is with her again on the sweets tower:

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.

ゆきねこさん Yuki Neko San / Frosty

Yuki Neko San came for winter! Yuki means snow. Yuki Neko San mainly comes for the Shirayuki (white snow) zabuton. Yuki Neko San likes sashimi but will also come for Frisky Bitz. From my experience, Yuki Neko San likes it when there’s snow in the garden.

When Yuki Neko San is indoors he doesn’t have the straw coat on.

I heard Yuki Neko San comes for the chirimen zabuton, momiji zabuton and blizzard tent but I haven’t verified it.

キッドさん Kid San / Billy the Kitten

Kid San is awfully cute! It’s funny cause when you type in katakana to get his name, you have to type ‘kiddo’. LOL.


Physical characteristic: neckerchief

Personality: nihilistic

Treasure: antique coin – an old beautiful coin with carving. Both sides of the coin look the same.


He comes for the Western hat.

たてじまさん Tatejima San / Joe DiMeowgio

Tatejima (vertical stripes) San looks like he’s wearing a Hanshin Tigers uniform. I read on Neko Atsume’s twitter feed that many people misunderstand that he’s holding a baseball bat, it’s actually a microphone! Tatejima San comes to the neko atsume garden to…stare at the baseball. hahaha.

ながぐつさん Nagagutsu San / Senor Don Gato

Is Nagagutsu San the neko atsume version of puss in boots? Could very well be since Nagagutsu (literally long shoes) means boots. Nagagutsu San only comes for the mouse wand toy thingy.
