The Cat is a major character in Homescapes and is Austin's pet. He is a plumpish, fluffy tomcat, mostly gray, and with white markings. Unlike any other character in the game, he can be named by the player.
The cat is a bit of a troublemaker, as it has been seen knocking over things, forcing Austin to clean it up. Austin also once says he had a storm, then says that the storm turned out to be the cat. The cat also pretends to be a monster, in the task "Replace Refrigerator" In the kitchen
