Mammals? is the eighth Crazed Cat Stage. It appears on the 24th of every month.
At the start of the battle, 6 Mooths spawn, and 1 Otta-smack-u. After ~53.33 seconds, 1 Snache and 3 Crazed Lizard Cats will appear with a boss shockwave. The enemy base will spawn small enemies at a fast rate, and pairs of Otta-smack-us at a slow rate. Overall, this is the combination of the Crazed Gross Cat Stage and the Crazed Bird Cat Stage.
It is recommended for the player to use Cat Units that have enough health to land some hits on the Crazed Lizard Cats before being knocked out, Jamiera Cat for example, and Cat Units that can outrange the Crazed Lizards.
Strategy 1 (ft. Greater Demon Cat)
Firstly, spawn tanky cats and long-ranged cats as you save money for Bahamut Cat. When the Crazed Lizard Cats appear, spawn all units except Greater Demon Cat and try not to run out of money, or the Otta-smack-us will break through your defences. When the Ottas and smaller enemies die, spawn Greater Demon Cat to damage the Crazed Lizard Cats.
Power-ups: Sniper the Cat
At the start, save your money, and once the Mooths reach your base, spam Wall Cats and Crazed Whale Cats and send Butterfly Cat (or Paris Cat) to kill the Mooths. Level up the Worker Cat. Shortly before the Otta-smack-us reach your base, spam all your meatshields, Paris Cat, and (optional) one King Dragon Cat. When they are killed, spam ONLY Crazed Whale Cats (they can take a lot of damage from the Crazed Lizards) and Crazed Giraffe Cats (to make sure to take down the peons before the Crazed Whale Cats attack). If you have Crazed Titan Cat, bring him instead. When the Otta-smack-us respawn, stop the spam of Crazed Giraffes and Crazed Whales, and instead spam only Crazed Wall Cats to stop the progress of the Crazed Lizards. Wait for the Otta-smack-us to get to the edge of the Crazed Lizard's range and then do the same technique over and over. Eventually, you should win.
Strategy 3 (ft. Hacker Cat)
Firstly, when the Mooths appear, simply spawn Butterfly Cat and some meatshields to prevent them from damaging the base. When the Mooths die, they should be able to provide you with enough money to upgrade the Worker Cat all the way and still have some money left over. The rest of the stage is simple: never stop spawning the meatshields so you can stop the three Crazed Lizards and the Otta-smack-us. Spawn Hacker Cat only when you have enough money and enough space to work with; otherwise he will be a waste of money. Jamiera Cat is useful because he can attack the three Lizards directly for about three hits before dying. The best way to counter the Otta-smack-us is to spam Paris Cats as soon as they are spawned, which will build up a stack of Paris Cats that will beat the Otta-smack-us in a quick fashion. Use the money gained from the Otta-smack-us to spawn a Jamiera, and do not spawn any more Paris Cats, for they will die from the long range of the Lizards. Repeat this cycle, and remember to never stop spawning meatshields. Ms. Sign will appear after a while, but by that time, you should be about 80% done with the Crazed Lizards.
Strategy 4 (ft. Cats in the Cradle)
Send out Butterfly Cat with some other cats to kill the Mooths. Have at least 10,000 money then summon the Cats in the Cradle to finish off the rest of the Mooths and spam cats. Try to be near to the enemy base as soon as possible as the Crazed Lizards come out. Kill everyone and knockback the Crazed Lizards to their base. Destroy the base!
When the battle starts, lure the Mooths close to your base and stall them with Crazed Walls while saving up for Bahamut. Don't lure them too close or your base will be attacked by the Otta-smack-us, which may result in a loss. After Bahamut scores a hit (if he doesn't kill the Ottas; send some attackers/Ramens to kill them), proceed to send out a few attackers to kill off the Mooths to gain money and upgrade the Worker Cat to MAX. Proceed to send out Hacker Cat and continue to send them out if you can. Stall the Lizards using only Crazed Wall Cats and Ramen Cats. When the two Ottas arrive, continue to stall, lure them a bit closer, and start spamming meatshields and Ramens. Then send out Valkyrie and some area attackers to deal with the Ottas. You must not let your wallet drop below 7000 unless its an emergency. After you kill the Ottas, continue to repeat the process mentioned above.
Strategy 6 (Hacker/Sniper stack)
Lineup: At least 3 meatshields, Paris Cat, Hacker Cat and Sniper the Recruit.
Recommended items: Cat CPU, Rich Cat
Note: This strategy is time consuming.
Firstly, spam meatshields and use Paris Cats to finish off the Mooths. ALWAYS SPAM MEATSHIELDS. Cycle through as many Hacker Cats as you can and a good army of Sniper the Recruits. Only spawn 1-3 Paris Cats when you see the Ottas spawn, since it is hard to gain money after the beginning. In the end, the Sniper army will knockback the Lizards behind their base, allowing your Hacker Cats to destroy the base.
*when it comes to health and attack power.
At the beginning of the stage, stall the Mooths with a few cheap cats and use Paris Cat or Macho Leg Cat to dispose of them. A high-level Paris and Macho Leg are recommended to make quick work of the Otta-smack-us that come out. Always spam your cheap cats and use some Paris/Macho Leg Cats to dispose of the Ottas. Don't overdo it with them or you'll drain your wallet. The Crazed Lizard Cats have incredible range so you shouldn't continually spam Paris or Macho Leg. Every now and then, when your long-ranged Uber is recharged, send it out, but only if there are no Ottas in sight. Your Uber will probably die many times in this method but it will work.;
This strategy is quite accessible, but time consuming.
Items: Rich Cat (optional), Speed Up (if you're impatient)
Immediately start by summoning a Sadako Cat to tank the Mooths, and spawn some Paris Cats to kill them. This is very important. Otta-smack-us spawn quite frequently, so you need to do damage fast. When the Crazed Lizards spawn, you should spawn Wrestling Cat and Jamiera Cat and hopefully sync the Lizards' attacks. Then, when the Ottas spawn, your tanky units will be obliterated, so you must lure the Ottas out of the bosses' range and summon 3 to 4 Paris Cats and Cameraman Cats. Then, when the Ottas are dead, you can use the money you got from them to summon your tanky cats. Rinse and repeat those steps and you should win.
If you've done the strategy well, the Lizards should all die at around the same time Ms. Sign comes out.
Strategy 9 (cheese)
Lineup: Attack up combos, Awakened Bahamut Cat (lvl 23+), Warlock and Pierre (lvl 28+), Lion Cat, Crazed Giraffe Cat, Paris Cat and another spammable unit with high DPS.
Items: Rich Cat.
Don't do anything at the beginning of the stage, and wait for the Mooths to approach. When the Mooths are at the Cat Base, send in Awakened Bahamut Cat. Bahamut should kill the Mooths, filling your wallet. Then send in Warlock and Pierre. Wait a second and then send in the rest of your attackers. When the Crazed Lizard Cats are out, fire the Cat Cannon to send them behind the base. Warlock and Pierre should then destroy the base in one hit, cheesing the stage. This strategy may take multiple attempts, along with a lot of patience.
Alternately, use the money from the Mooths to get A. Bahamut and other fast-moving heavy hitters to take down the base before the bosses spawn.
This strategy requires a few high level units. Suits mid-game players who happened to be stuck in this stage.
Lineup: Two Research UP CatCombos (Biohazard/Bony Bone), Mohawk Cat, Eraser Cat (min. 20+15), Ramen Cat (level 40+), Jamiera Cat (20+15 or so), Paris Cat/Cyborg Cat (Somewhere around lvl.35, 35+7 is what the author has), Butterfly Cat, and Awakened Bahamut Cat if you have him.
Items: Rich Cat (recommended).
When you start the stage, save up some money and deploy some Erasers and Butterfly Cats. When one of the Mooths is killed, your wallet should be full. Use the money to level up your Worker Cat to level 5, and wait for the rest to be killed. When they are killed one by one, max out your Worker Cat and the bosses should come out by the time. Now spawn Ramen Cat and Jamiera Cat. The key is to have Ramen and Jamiera tank damage from the Crazed Lizards and dish out some good damage to them at the same time. When the base spawns Otta-smack-us, stop spamming the two cats and start spamming Parises/Cyborgs along with Erasers, as the Ottas have high DPS and can kill the tanks (Ramen & Jamiera) in around 7-10 hits or so. Repeat and you should win.
