Bird Cat is the 6th Normal Cat and your second Cat Unit with Area Attack (after Tank Cat). Available to unlock after completing Nepal in Empire of Cats: Chapter 1 and requires 5000 XP or a Normal Cat Capsule to unlock. True Form has a slightly longer recharge time, but increases health and damage and gains the ability to weaken Angels.

See here to know how to classify Units.
The classification does not represent Units in their niches.


  • This cat can be useful in the early-game when most enemies have low range, allowing it to deal damage without getting killed.
  • This unit is also good at clearing out the weaker enemies surrounding a boss.
  • Thanks to its good DPS (especially in True Form), it can be useful in certain situations such as dealing with slow but powerful long-ranged enemies like THE SLOTH, though usually tough cats with high HP like Titan Cat are preferred. Later in the game, it is outclassed by longer-ranged cats, especially Dragon Cat, Paris Cat, and its Crazed counterpart Crazed Bird Cat.
  • Due to its description and appearance, many people think Bird Cat has very low health. In reality, it just has below-average health. It really has about as much as Tank Cat. The reason the description is like that is because it cannot be spammed as much.
  • Early players may have a challenge using Bird Cat effectively. 650¢ is a lot of money for an early player. In other words, it's expensive for an early player, and dies easily.
  • Bird Cat has faster attack speed than UFO Cat or The Flying Cat, so using Bird Cat in some situations may be the better option. Note that UFO and The Flying Cat have higher damage per hit.
  • This cat can be used to replace Paris Cat until the player gets Paris Cat, at which point Paris should be used. Bird Cat can attack faster and does more damage, but its short range and slightly higher price makes it vastly inferior in most situations.
  • Due to the short range of The Flying Cat and its relatively low health, it is not recommended to use him against Angels, even though he has a chance to weaken them. The only Angel that The Flying Cat can effectively handle is Gabriel. Might weaken Boraphim and Sunfish Jones as well.
  • As a very situational unit due to its short range, don't prioritize this cat too much. While the levels will count towards your User Rank, the real benefit of this cat is found in the Saucers Combo (which then pairs with Madam Bride and Cupid Cat for obscene Massive Damage boosts).
