New cats have been released, so I’m popping in to check on the kitties again. After the sweet confectionery theme, it’s cooling summer time! And it’s featuring some really cute new goodies, check out that penguin cushion! And that dinosaur slide! Can’t wait to see what the cats do with them. :3
Spotted this Facebook post on my wall and I’m so super envious of the fans living in Hong Kong now!
Look at those faces in 3D smiling at us~~ So cuuuute!!
Apparently it’s the second time a limited-time Pop-Up store for Neko Atsume has opened there. The first time was in February, and this time it’s until the end of August. Those who are interested and living in the area, do head over to the official Facebook page for more details.
I really hope they come to Singapore one day!
All you have to do is just by update your game (if you have already installed it) to the latest version and changing to English language in the Setting! Everything has been translated to English, including the cats’ names (unless you have customized them like I have).
The latest version update also added some new stuff, such as new Cowboy Western style items and a Western Style backyard that you can see in this screenshot.
There’s also new cats added in this version and some special cats have new interaction. (hint, there’s a train so…) I myself have only since one new special cat so far, and its favorite toy is the Cowboy Hat.
All in all it’s a super awesome update! I wonder what they are going to add for Christmas, or for New Year.
Yesterday, while I was on my way to STGCC 2015, I checked my Neko Atsume game as usual to see if my latest setup could finally lure out the elusive Cafe-san. To my surprise, both Cream-san and Cafe-san showed up! Together! The last two cats I’m missing!
Cream-san at least has been leaving fishies for me occasionally after the first and only sighting, during which I totally forgot to take a photo, but Cafe-san had never showed up before! To say that I was very happy is a huge understatement!
The one thing I decided to try in order to get Cafe-san to appear was to remove other items that will attract other rare cats. Lo and behold, Cafe-san appeared right off. 😀 But now I’m wondering if this is a widely known tip that I have somehow missed… ._.
Now I’m looking forward to the Ver1.4.0 update that’s coming later this month with Autumn items! 🙂 Maybe there will be more cats?

It seems there are more than a few of my Facebook friends are Neko Atsume fans, and they shared some awesome Neko Atsume news with me~!
Neko Atsume’s Web Manga “Wise Neko Atsume”
These weekly three-panels comic strips written by Miyui Tsuki, with assistance by Hit-Point Co., Ltd. are released every Friday, featuring the cute cats from the game with some thought provoking quotes.
I have included this week’s release (click on the thumbnail on the left), which has a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“We walk alone in the world. Friends, such as we desire, are dreams and fables.”
Neko Atsume LINE Stickers now available
Time to spam your friends with these adorable cats doing adorable things!!
Hit-Point has released a set of LINE stickers for Neko Atsume! As they are released under Creators’ Stickers, the set is priced at US$0.99. Here’s a preview of 12 of the stickers, the full set contains 40 stickers in all!
When I was searching for the installation and play guides previously, I came across Miss Kiri’s guide (it’s in Traditional Chinese) and was impressed by the interesting way the information was presented and the animated gifs showcasing the cats. Although ultimately I chose another guide, I never forgot Miss Kiri’s post.
Some days ago, I chanced upon her site again, and decided to share her posts to English fans. She included a lot a lot of screenshots and images so it’s actually pretty easy to make sense of.

Spotted a Chinese article “貓咪收集App萌爆羊毛氈公仔登場！” featuring hand-made dolls of the cats from Neko Atsume! So I did a little digging and found the source of these adorable little wool felt dolls:

Now my hands itch to make my own little cats…. *must resist*
Some time ago, just when I was starting to run out of toys to buy in this game, I spotted posts in a Facebook group showing new stuff in Neko Atsume (ねこあつめ), and yep, there’s a new update! *pops confetti*
The new feature in this update is called “Makeover” but I like to call it alternate backyards. It can be accessed using the new icon at the bottom left corner, and you can buy new backyard designs with golden fishes. There’s a 50% discount coupon for the first backyard purchase!
Just started playing this relaxing little Japanese Android game called “Neko Atsume (ねこあつめ)”, where you play as a cat lover who can’t have a kitty of your own, so you set out food and toys to attract the neighborhood cats to come in and play.
Look at that adorable little idiot who stuffed itself into the cake box! xD
*Update* It seems to be available for most regions on the Google Play store now! 🙂
