Alley cats are among the few animals you’ll see wandering around Night City in Cyberpunk 2077. You’ve probably met the one that hangs out behind Misty’s Esoterica, for example. While it is possible to get a pet cat for yourself, doing so can be a bit tricky if you don’t know where to look. This article will explain how to get a cat to bring home to your apartment in Cyberpunk 2077.
How to Get Nibbles the Cat
In order to get yourself a cat, you must go where cats like to hang out. Start by exiting V’s apartment and head left down the hallway. Turn right and search the trash can for a data shard labeled “feed teh cat.” If you don’t see the shard, it may be because you need to have reached Act 2 first for it to appear.
Once you take the shard, a bowl will appear that allows you to place cat food in it. Depending on how thorough of a looter you are, you may already have cat food in your inventory. If so, then go ahead and put it in the bowl. Cat food is a consumable, so don’t worry about accidentally selling or disassembling it as a junk item.
Where to Find Cat Food
If you don’t have cat food, then you will need to find some. There are several places to find cat food in Cyberpunk 2077. One place we suggest searching is the Grand Imperial Mall in Coastview, Pacifica. Head to the location we’re standing at on the map below.
Make your way around to the west side of the building and look for the loading docks. Look for dock number five in the back corner. You should find some cat food on the platform just beside the railing.
If that didn’t work, another place to get cat food is in the Arasaka Industrial Plant in Rancho Coronado, Santo Domingo. The facility is protected with guards, so come prepared to take down a few sentries. The cat food is found on top of a crate near the center of the area.
Feed Teh Cat
Once you have obtained some cat food, return to V’s apartment building and put the food in the dish where you found the shard. Now, head back to your apartment and go to sleep. When you wake from your cat nap, go back to the dish in the hallway and you should find a hungry kitty named Nibbles chowing down on the food. Pick up the cat to trigger a cut scene that brings Nibbles to your apartment.
There you have it, now you have a feline friend to keep you company between jobs. Once you have the cat, Nibbles will remain in V’s apartment for the rest of the game. A pet cat is just one of the handful of secret items that can be added to V’s apartment in Cyberpunk 2077. The Mortal Kombat easter egg is another one of these sought-after decorations.
