Catching Tanta’s Familiar Cats

The Tanta’s Familiar locations in Forspoken are altars with a cat statue, and they’re also symbolized by a paw on the world map. Once you get close to one, you’ll be able to interact with it, which causes a magical furball to spawn.

The creature will teleport to a clearing or field, and you’ll have to go near it. A prompt will tell you to hold the right mouse button, which causes Frey to enter stealth mode. As you approach, the cat will stand on its legs (with matching exclamation point), implying that it’s wary of your presence.

When this occurs, lightly tap the “W” key and continue to crouch-walk slowly, all while watching out in case it gets startled again. It’s a bit like a “statue dance” minigame. If you do it right, another prompt will appear, and you’ll be able to press the left mouse button to pet it. Conversely, if you fail, the cat will disappear. Don’t worry, though, because you can interact with the monument to restart the activity.

Successfully petting a Tanta’s Familiar cat in Forspoken allows the creature to visit you in any Refuge fast travel point. As there are 20 of them, you’re gonna have to explore every region.

Likewise, do note that it’s better to progress further in the campaign before you start looking for all the cats. The bosses you hunt down and defeat open up new regions, as well as provide you with spells that help with traversal (i.e., Zip grapple and Glide surfboard). These make it easier for you reach certain spots that would otherwise be inaccessible.

  • Cipallian Way #2: North of the town.
  • The Blossomwoods: Near the Refuge fast travel point.

  • Tanta’s Demesne: This is in the castle town.

  • Academy Hills: Found just north of the Belfry.
  • Inner Visoria: From the Belfry, follow the mountainside loop to the south. This is in a clearing alongside a Photo Spot and Flashback Challenge.

In any case, once you’ve petted all the Tanta’s Familiar cats in Forspoken, you’ll receive the “Cat Person” trophy. And, speaking of the fabulous felines, don’t forget to do the Chasing the Cat sidequests in Cipal to earn a special currency.
