If I was a cat, I think I would've lost one of my nyan lives already with my pun game in my first mod round-up. But alas, the Stray modding community continues to give, and I am therefore compelled to continue cataloguing their work (see, that one wasn't even noticeable! That wasn't painful now, was it?).
First up, there's another mod for the dog lovers among us, thanks to MrMarco1003, this time with Bolt from the titular Disney movie. The mod also changes Stray's meows into barks, and you'll get to see Bolt chilling out with his identically-shaped fur-iends at the beginning of the game.
With the dog lovers placated, let's move onto the modifications for us cat lovers.
mal4m has added Cait Sith to the game, and he looks absolutely adorable. Sporting his mew and updated look from the Final Fantasy 7 remake, his trademark cape has been swapped for the backpack the player would normally wear, but with a red and black colour scheme. And some bespoke Final Fantasy graphics.
mal4m has even included an alternative face version where Cat Sith's eyes are closed, and he looks exactly like his original incarnation in 1997.
Spider-cat, Spider-cat, does whatever a Spider-cat does. Stray's usual tabby dons its superhero costume and transforms into Milo, inspired by Miles Morales, in this mod from crubino. His mask has the same webbing pattern as Miles' suit and his little whiskers pop through.
Maybe playing as a domesticated animal is just too boring for you. Maybe you're looking fur something a litter bit dif-fur-rent. Maybe Spyro can scratch that itch for you. Courtesy of MrMarco1003 again, you can roam around the game as the lovable purple dragon. It's quite apt considering Spyro's spunky catitude and his cat-like idle animations in Reignited Trilogy.
If you'd rather tap into the world of a sophisticated kitty then check out this mod which changes the player into Marie from The Aristocats by huckpie. Everybody wants to be a cat, after all.
Kaijauthentics has done the exact opposite, adding the Minecraft pig in all its blocky rotundness. It doesn't oink but hey, he's enjoying exploring a world that isn't conf(el)ined to right angles. Think about it from that purrspective. If you started meowing and you had been transported to a place that has angles you couldn't even imagine, you'd be fureaking out too.
And last but by no means least, skylightglare and ilikedetectives are letting you live out your magi-cat girl transformation dreams with this Sailor Moon mod . Although it's still in progress, you can currently choose between Luna, Diana or Artemis with various colour customisations.
In the words of Tuxedo Mask, my work here is done. Huh, I wonder if anyone's working on a Tuxedo Mask cat mod…
