A mod has now made it possible Cyberpunk 2077 Players can pet the stray cat that can be adopted by Protagonist V. There are many notable games for animal lovers out there, but even titles that don’t focus on furry creatures can still feature them consistently. CD Projekt Red’s open-world sci-fi release actually seemed to go the opposite way, showing no pets or other non-human creatures in Night City, aside from the aforementioned cat.
Although the game doesn’t actually have animals, with the lore that sightings are rare after an epidemic leaves town with no birds, rats or other creatures, Cyberpunk 2077 still enjoys great popularity. After a very shaky start in late 2020, the studio has been working diligently to mend the laundry list of glitches that plagued the title and tarnished CDPR’s reputation. Nowadays, the dystopian RPG is in a much better state. However, players still cannot pet the cat.
Until now, that is. Thanks to modder Deceptious, fans now have the opportunity to pet the stray cat Cyberpunk 2077. A few videos show the mod in action, with V ‘exciting’ the furry animal called Nibbles before getting into the shower and then pranking him savagely after he comes out. When exiting the shower, the cat sits quietly and looks at the holo ad, and when the player uses the closet in the apartment, it’s in the laundry basket. The only limitation is that V cannot pet Nibbles when the cat is sleeping.
Some might be curious as to how it’s even possible to adopt an in-game pet once you find Nibbles the cat Cyberpunk 2077 can be quite rare. As already mentioned, most of the animals are not really present in the city. However, there are some cats running around. By placing a bowl of cat food near V’s home, it is possible to lure Nibbles into the home. This means that the player has effectively adopted the animal, and with Deceptious’ mod it actually becomes possible to interact with and pet it.
Cyberpunk 2077 is not the only game that includes this feature thanks to the modding community, since it is also possible to pet the dogs in games like Skyrim. It really begs the question why some developers include animals in their titles but not the option to pet them. There are probably valid reasons, but at least animal-loving modders are coming to the rescue.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
