Were you looking for one of CAT's counterparts: Candy, Old Candy, RAT, Shadow Candy, or Monster Cat? Or his partner RAT.

CAT, also known as The Cat or formerly as his original name Candy the Cat, is a new animatronic and one of two main antagonists of Five Nights at Candy's 2, the other being RAT. He is the first incarnation of Candy. He, along with RAT, appears in Night 6 and Night 8 only.


He is almost ironically similar to RAT. They both have the same dominant color and have fallen into disrepair. However, CAT has a cat shaped head unlike RAT, as he has a rat shaped head, to differentiate their species, respectively. CAT also has hollowed eyes, with the right eye bearing stitches. Like RAT, he has a stitch running across his head and the same joints, yet, he doesn't have a metallic skin or layer showing. Unlike his successors, Candy and Cindy, CAT himself lacks whiskers. He has a large hole torn in his chest. Similar to RAT, he has 2-3 metallic cubes on his arms. He also has many cubic teeth, like Candy and Cindy. However, unlike the two, he has no fanged teeth. He has exposed endoskeleton fingers, along with his left hand and lower left leg, with parts of his upper left leg exposed. His body is damaged, as is his head. He also seems to be less damaged than RAT.

CAT becomes active on Night 6 and Night 8. He has two methods of attacking the player. He can attempt to enter a vent like Chester, but if a phone is activated, CAT will stay in that room temporarily. He can also attack from the Main Hall like Candy, Cindy, and Blank. He can kill the player, if they have the Maintenance Panel up, or if they are looking around the Main Hall. CAT will start in Cam 015 on Night 6 and Cam 013 on Night 8.

Alongside RAT, he doesn't seem to have the ability to disable phones, strangely. This can be possibly a bug in the game, however.


  • Cat was first ever version of Candy, as his original name was Candy the Cat, as presented in the third game.
  • From Emil Macko's concept art in the Extra menu, CAT was originally going to have his teeth more sharper.
    • This was scrapped for an unknown reason.
  • Unlike the other animatronics, CAT and RAT can appear in the same room together.
  • After passing Night 8, clicking on the fourth star on the main menu will send the player to a minigame, showing the Grand Reopening of Candy's Burgers and Friends or Rat's & Cat's Theater, with CAT and RAT performing. This minigame later on hints towards third game, and was the first ever teaser of it.
  • Rat and Cat were originally costumes, and were main mascots of Rat's & Cat's Theater. They were the first generation of characters/animatronics present in the series.
    • Place existed tills year 1961, and was closed down by an unfurtunate incident presented in Night 5 minigame in the third game.
      • The incident, which was the murder of two workers by a Puppeteer, can explain later on weird and aggresive behaviour of RAT and CAT as bodies of workers died in their suits, hinting possibly towards the fact that Rat and Cat could be haunted by them.
  • CAT and RAT are both similar to Tom and Jerry, from the series of the same name.
    • Additionally, both of their names rhyme, and they do work together to get to the player.
  • When viewing CAT and RAT on the extras menu, the music will slow down and change to a low beat.
  • If the player is attacked by CAT or RAT, the Game Over screen says that Marylin was murdered by an unknown assailant, to the point where it resembles a bear attack, according to the newspaper shown. If the player is attacked by any other of the animatronics, the Game Over screen simply claims that Marylin has gone missing.
    • This means CAT and RAT are the only animatronics that will expose Marylin's corpse, after killing her.
  • Being in all capitals like RAT's name, people thought that both names were acronyms.
  • Some thought that CAT and RAT were springlock animatronics, but this has been disconfirmed by Emil Macko on Twitter.
  • In the FNAC 3 minigame, its reveals that the CAT and RAT killed the twins.
    • Also when you to touch RAT in the minigame, one of the twins will go into the machine.
      • This could mean that RAT might have push the twins in there, while CAT brings them.
