"The Mafia are terrible at cooking! But fear not, Cooking Cat is here!"
—Cooking Cat

The Cooking Cat is a minor character that Hat Kid meets in Down with the Mafia! in Chapter 1. She claims that The Mafia's cooks are actually terrible at cooking, and that she replaces the food with her cooking so no-one gets sick.

She lives in the rafters of Mafia Headquarters, and is surrounded by a pile of fish and a few buckets of lobster.

Later on, she enters Hat Kid's Spaceship, telling her things about Relics. She stays there for the rest of the game in the kitchen. If you talk to her after the Relic conversation she will then ask Hat Kid if she is a "meat" or a "veggie type of person." Her response will depend on what you chose.

Cooking Cat reappears in The Finale in the middle of the 1st and 2nd phase of Mustache Girl's fight. She jumps upon a Goat's head with her hand on it's horn for balance. She joins in with the surrounding characters to tell Mustache Girl to get lost.


  • Several characters make mention of Cooking Cat having a television show based around the preparation and tasting of food.
  • Earlier versions of text and voice lines seemed to indicate that Cooking Cat was male. These have since been edited or changed, establishing Cooking Cat as a female character.
