Where’s Froggy? Big the Cat is on the prowl
Ever encountered a big purple cat that’s on the prowl for a frog? Big that Cat is arguably one of the greatest characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series! Gentle and with an enormous heart of gold, all this feline wants to do in life is chill with his slippery friend Froggy. Things get turned upside down in Sonic Adventure though, as Big’s best mate goes for a little stroll, and doesn’t return. Queue one big quest to save poor Froggy from Eggman’s clutches! We always admire a cheerful cat pal, and Big is definitely one of the best cats in gaming!
Animal Crossing’s Rover is one of the best cats in gaming!
Where would Animal Crossing be without a bunch of adorable kitties? If we had to pick a cat from the series, it wold have to be the cat who invites you into the world of Animal Crossing. Rover, the cat with a great, beaming smile, asks a bunch of questions to the player at the start of most of the games. He digs deep into your personality, creating, well – your Animal Crossing player. Curious, friendly and a frequently traveller, the series wouldn’t be the same without rover!

The power-up saw Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach turn into wall-climbing kitties! Cat Peach was so popular that she shows up in Mario Kart 8 and as a spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – she is super adorable!
