How to Pet Cats in Assassin’s Creed Origins

Over the years there have been many memorable interactions between a player and their pets in video games. Typically, this involved a canine companion, a horse, or even a variety of mechanic stand-ins. Feline representation has been lacking quite a bit in the gaming genre. Until now. In a stroke of brilliance, Ubisoft is letting players of Assassin’s Creed: Origins pet feral cats in the Ancient Egyptian world.

How to Pet Cats

Petting cats is actually quite easy. While you may be tempted to press a button on your keyboard, mouse, or controller, the chance that you’ll perform some action that will scare them off is great. Instead, simply crouch near a cat and, if you’re lucky, the cat will come seek you out and let you pet her. If it’s not working at times, all we can suggest is that cats have a mind of their own, much as they do in real life. In the image above however, we had a total of three cats come seeking our affection.

Where to find Cats

Cats can be found just about anywhere in the world of Assassin’s Creed: Origins. We’ve had the most luck finding them on the outskirts of larger towns, though. Fishing villages and smaller farming communities lend themselves best for taking a break from all the killing. Take a stroll along the water or through the fields and keep an eye open for the furry four-legged creatures.

While petting cats is a fun distraction, we are currently hard at work on our full review of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and also have several guides in the works. Be sure to keep an eye on our front page!
