Cat Monster DnD 5E Stat Block

  • Type: Tiny beast, unaligned
  • Armor Class: 12
  • Hit Points: 2 (1d4)
  • Speed: 40 ft., climb 30 ft.

So the cat in dnd 5e is considered to be a tiny beast and it is considered to be unaligned as most beasts are. There’s an AC of 12. 2 hit points calculated by rolling a straight d4, speed of 40 feet, but it can also climb 30 feet which is pretty cool! Now let’s take a look at cat beast 5e actual stats.

Cat Monster DnD 5E Stats

  • STR: 3 (-4)
  • DEX: 15 (+2)
  • CON: 10 (+0)
  • INT: 3 (-4)
  • WIS: 12 (+1)
  • CHA: 7 (-2)

There you’ll notice pretty good dexterity, pretty good wisdom and decent con but nothing else really to write home about.


  • Perception: +3
  • Stealth: +4

In terms of skills it gets a plus three bonus perception which is great and a plus four bonus to stealth which is awesome as well. also check out 5e list of creatures by cr.


  • Passive Perception: 13
  • Languages: —
  • Challenge: 0 (10 XP)
  • Keen Smell: The cat has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.

It has a passive perception of 13 and as keen smell which is advantage on perception checks that rely on smell. Now as tons of people have pointed out on various forums its liking a couple things. For example darkvision and you can make an argument that it should be keen hearing and not keen smell. Also read are tabaxi small or medium?.

Also there’s nothing that kind of nerfs fall damage which i feel like a cat should have but whatever that’s what we got to work with, if you have any homebrew suggestions put down beneath in the comment section naturally but outside of that let’s get on through it’s actions. Keep checking cat beast 5e spells.


Claws: Melee Weapon Attack: +0 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 slashing damage.

The cat can only make one attack and that is a claw attack. It is a melee weapon attack, no modifier to hit so just a straight d20 rule. Reach of five feet can only hit one target and deals one slashing damage which is pretty cool. I really like cats, they’re found pretty much anywhere found in deserts, forests, grasslands and urban areas.

So it’s pretty easy to weave them into your campaigns, i’d make an argument that they make great spies i’d also make an argument that they’re great familiars pets just it’s very easy for them to blend into various places. You can also check out this dnd cat familiar.


That being said, if you have any ideas on how to use them, any thoughts, suggestions, comments, concerns please put them down beneath in the comment section and as always you guys happy studying.
