In order to get a wily hellcat , you will need to raise a kitten into a Cat which will eventually become overgrown then talk to Felkrash for her to train your Overgrown cat. This will take 4-10 hours to progress from kitten to Overgrown cat.
After completion of Ratcatchers quest, an Overgrown Cat can be trained into a Wily cat by talking to Felkrash in the Port Sarim Rat Pits. When the Wily cat eventually reverts to a Lazy cat , it can be re-transformed into a Wily cat through training by catching rats (both normal and Hellcat versions).
Overgrown cats are obtained after a further 2-3 hours of having your Cat following you. If you allow your cat to become overgrown , you will be able to take a new kitten from Gertrude, saving trips to West Ardougne if deemed tedious.
It is highly recomended that players use wily cats as they will be able to stand up to the rat much more effectively than a normal cat will . If the cat dies during the fight, it is permanently lost and players will have to obtain another kitten from Gertrude.
While it is impossible to convert an overgrown cat into an overgrown hellcat , since overgrown cats cannot catch rats, players can get an overgrown hellcat by allowing a hell-kitten or adult hellcat to age into an overgrown hellcat .
The cat must catch the rats before it turns into an overgrown cat , which cannot hunt vermin. Players who only have these must buy another kitten from Gertrude, or those who have done the Ratcatchers quest can train their cat into a wily one. One of the best places to catch rats is in West Ardougne.
Most pets do not serve a purpose other than aesthetics, as most pets are very rare drops from certain bosses or skilling activities, and thus are often considered prestigious. A player may only have one pet following them at one time. Unlike other pets , kittens must be stroked and fed regularly or they will run away.
If then it is not fed within the next 3 minutes, the kitten will run away. Every time the kitten is fed, the timer resets to 24 minutes. Any raw or cooked fish that is not exclusively caught from Barbarian fishing or Aerial fishing can be used to feed a kitten .
Use the pet cat on the civilian in order to make the trade. Hellcats do not need to be transformed back to normal cats before being traded in. After the completion of the Ratcatchers quest, players can speak to Felkrash to have her train their overgrown cat into a wily cat .
The Apothecary is a non-player character who runs a potion shop in southwest Varrock . In Romeo & Juliet, he makes the player a cadava potion. In One Small Favour, he gives the player herbal tincture and breathing salts. In Ratcatchers he gives the player Cat Antipoison for Hooknosed Jack.
You do not need to feed your cat , just give it attention once in awhile. You just have to give your Cat attention. To get your Cat to grow into an Overgrown Cat just walk around with your Cat and it will grow into an Overgrown Cat , eventually. Buy a kitten from Gertrude located just west of Varrock.
Go to the middle of the Lumber Yard and climb up the ladder. There you will find Gertrude’s cat , Fluffs. First, try to pick-up the cat , she will hiss at you. Use a bucket of milk on her and try to pick her up again.
A 4-dose Strength potion can also be obtained from the Apothecary in Varrock for 5 coins if you bring him a limpwurt root and red spiders’ eggs. It is a requirement of the Medium Varrock Diary to have the Apothecary make you a Strength potion . Strength potions temporarily raise your strength level by 10% + 3.
The kitten will have a full set of adult teeth by about 7 months old. At 5- 6 months the kitten is old enough to be spayed or neutered. Kittens can start to look like adult cats by 6 months of age thus they need nutritional support for optimum health and development during their growth phase which lasts 12 months .
