The cat has a decent AC of 12, it has two hit points, it’s just a d4 that i’d roll it honestly why not more fun that way. It has two different speeds it has 40 feet of walking movement, alternatively a 30-foot climb speed which is awesome by the way. Climbing in 5e is kind of broken, so this is super great. In any case you can also check out this flying cat familiar 5e.

Their best statistic bar none is their dexterity which is perfection, i tell you a very cat ass right! They also have one of the higher intelligences which makes sense cats are pretty smart. They have two skills so these would add on to the modifier so for perception they have a plus three which is super great and stealth a +4 which is even better. Do you know what is a familiar 5e.

They have a passive perception of 13 which is really good, i don’t even think my character now is a passive perception that hide. They also get keen smell, so they have any advantage on perception checks that rely on smell. You can also read this animal familiar dnd 5e.

Really great, i don’t think there’s always have the cat kind of following behind you, i think it works really great for a friendly wizard. You know cats are super approachable animals or even a witch if you wanted to be a black cat, i think that’d be super cool. Ultimately depends on your playstyle. You know it’s a great choice.

Personal Thoughts

Usually one of my players cleric/wizard has the cat familiar and of course it’s awesome. He’s found that bad guys and even monsters are tend to be ignored it in the towns, villages and cities because it is “just a cat”. However makes him great for scouting and spying on people, especially with his ability to climb. For that i’m glad that he’s gotten so much use out of it!

The drawback of this familiar i personally consider is it should have been given Darkvision! In any case i also feeling bad that the cat hasn’t been given Keen Hearing too, while jackal and mastiff have both Keen Hearing and Smell. Dogs are better than cats at smelling but cats have better hearing. 🙂

In my opinion it’s a horrible thing that  they don’t have night vision it’s a biological fact they could see excellent in the dark especially compared to humans and dogs.

Conclusion

If you can think of any cool ways to use the cat, any interesting scenarios, stories or anything like that please let me know down in the comment section, i really appreciate it. That being said guys, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy casting.
