The Cat Cap is a Hat Item in the Reign of Giants DLC. It is found in the Dress Tab, requires 4 Cat Tails and 4 Silk to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. The Sewing Kit repairs 50% of its durability.

Cat Caps restore 3.3 Sanity/min while worn and are tier 1 warm clothing items, increasing the time a character can be without a fire during the Winter before Freezing. They have an insulation factor of 60.

Since Catcoons can easily go extinct on a map, and only drop their Cat Tails by chance, it is best to keep this Hat maintained with a Sewing Kit.

Cat Caps are also included in the Hamlet DLC, however, they cannot be crafted. Instead, they can be bought for 10 Oincs at The Sow's Ear Hat Shop in the Pig City.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Since Catcoon is a portmanteau of "cat " and "raccoon", this item is most likely based on the real life Coonskin Cap, made most famous by the frontiersman Davy Crockett. Wickerbottom's quote references this by saying "Not quite like Crockett's, but it'll do."
  • Visually, the Cat Cap also resembles an Ushanka Cap.
  • In older versions of Reign of Giants, the Cat Cap had resistance to wetness and was dropped outright by killing Catcoons.
