Cats are a type of population, which cannot be created by the player directly. They are not affected by the population limit, nor do they consume food.

Creating catsEdit

Each time the player creates workers by clicking a button, there is a certain chance that a cat will be created at the same time. It is irrelevant if the button for 1, 10, 100 or 1000 workers is clicked, the chance of creating a cat stays the same. According to the comments in the source code: "This is intentionally independent of the number of workers spawned."
