Battle Cats Wiki

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 5,000 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.

  • High cost
  • Low health [Normal, Evolved]
  • Short attack range
In order to classify Cat Units, see here


This cat can be useful in the early-game when most enemies have low range, allowing it to deal damage without getting killed. This is important, as his cost, health, and range quickly become his downfall once Empire of Cats is over.

If you don't yet have Paris Cat, you can use it for common boss enemies throughout Empire of Cats like Hippoe, Pigge, Jackie Peng and Gory. Make sure you send out cats with high health like Tank Cat or Titan cat because its health is terrible for its cost.

Despite its description and appearance, Bird Cat is actually just as tough as an equal level Tank Cat, but isn't as spammable due to costing over 6 times as much. Before Paris Cat is unlocked, Bird Cat is a nice replacement, with the pros of attacking faster and dealing more damage, but its horribly short range and slightly higher price makes it vastly inferior to Paris in nearly all situations.

Since this is 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 Cat Combo (which then can be paired with Madam Bride and Cupid Cat for massive damage boosts).

True Form

Due to the short range of The Flying Cat and its relatively low health, it is not recommended to use him against Angel enemies, even though he gains a chance to weaken them. The only Angel that The Flying Cat can effectively handle is Gabriel. At best, Flying might weaken Boraphim or Heavenly Hippoe as well, but it's still likely to die early, so it's not recommended.

Thanks to its good DPS, it can be useful in certain situations such as dealing with slow but powerful long-ranged enemies like THE SLOTH, although high HP units like Titan Cat may be preferred, depending on the level. 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 having more range and higher DPS.
