The Catcoon is a neutral Mob in the Reign of Giants DLC, spawning from a Hollow Stump. It will wander around, pouncing at small creatures and playing with various objects, sometimes destroying them. When killed, a Catcoon will drop Meat and has a 33% chance of dropping a Cat Tail. It will also give the player 5 points of Naughtiness.

When it sees a small Bird, Rabbit, Moleworm, Butterfly, or Bee, it will pounce on it and kill it. In addition to Monsters, Catcoons are aggressive towards Pengulls too and will attack them if they get close enough. This generally leads to the Catcoon being killed in retaliation. Catcoons will also attack a Glommer, even if players have befriended both, so caution should be taken. Catcoons are hostile to Webber, since he is considered a Monster.

Catcoons can be befriended by giving them "toys" or food, and they will give "gifts" to the player by coughing up items, such as Rot and Cut Grass, as if it is a hairball. Each item given to the Catcoon will add a tenth of a day (48 sec) to the time they spend following the player [1] (up to a maximum of 1 day [2]) and force the next hairball to be sooner.[3] The item that they give depends on the number of times they hack before coughing it up. Currently, there are two lists for neutral and friendly Catcoons.

Things a Catcoon will attack or eat: Bee Butterfly Fireflies Flower Moleworm Rabbit Crow Redbird Snowbird Pengull Glommer Hound Smallbird

Gifts from a Catcoon Edit

Neutral Edit

There are 9 tiers of neutral items, but because most items occur within several tiers, it's more useful to show the probability of each item:

Item Probability Tiers
Wet Goop 84% 1-2
Rot 6.48% 2-4
Cut Grass 2.86% 3-5
Moleworm 2.04% 9
Birchnut 2.04% 9
Rocks 0.64% 5-6
Flint 0.61% 6-8
Dark Petals 0.38% 5
Pine Cone 0.35% 7-8
Petals 0.26% 6
Ice 0.20% 7
Crimson Feather 0.15% 8

Friendly Edit

Strangely, items at the highest tier are actually much more probable than the several tiers below them.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve Together Edit

In Don't Starve Together, befriended Catcoons will follow the player for certain amount of time depending on the "toys" or food given. If the Catcoon is able to reach the player before that time ends, it will spit out the gift and discontinue to follow. However, spitting out a gift does not mean it is no longer befriended, evident from its agro to a wild Catcoon.

Prototype Tips Edit

  • Catcoons will steal any Grave Digger items left on the ground among other things, therefore it's advisable to keep them in Chests if any Catcoons live nearby.
  • Many Catcoon gifts are also Catcoon toys. Players should make sure to pick up any wanted gifts as soon as they are coughed up to prevent Catcoon from getting it back.
  • If Wes uses Pile o' Balloons to befriend a Catcoon, the Catcoon will drop it on death.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • The name "Catcoon" is a portmanteau of the words "Cat" and "Raccoon".
  • Hollow stumps become deserted after spawning 9 Catcoons. This is a reference to the belief that cats have 9 lives.
  • Catcoons may be a reference to a real-life cat breed known as the "Maine Coon", which were originally believed to be a mix of cat and raccoon.
  • Catcoons will occasionally attempt to climb trees, but they never succeed.
  • The Catcoons' voice work was done by Kelly Graham.[4]
