Locations of the cats for the Cat Fancy achievement, Spoiler Alert!!!
Location: Antique Shop
Solution:Buy a can of government-issued sardines from the Cola Wars Surplus store next door and give it to Calliope.
Calliope’s Boon: +1 Physical Armor
Location: Captain Durch’s House
Solution:You first need to speak to the guy at St. Polycarp’s and accept the side quest. Go into the church catacomb and read the guest book, which gives you the Durch’s House location. Go there.
Write down the date on the rock outside his house, then read the news from that date at the Watchful Eye. Back at Durch’s House, ask him about the Porquod.
Once you’re in his house, talk to him for a bit. Speak to the fifth urn, who will request cigarettes. You can purchase cigarettes from the Cola Wars Surplus. Leave the cigarettes on the tray next to the urn, and then after the small cutscene investigate the bookcase.
After talking to the man in the hidden room, go to St. Polycarp’s. Take a spare urn from the catacomb.
Take the urn back to Durch’s House and replace the fifth urn. Speak to the man in the hidden room again. Once you do that, you can now pet Ishmael.
Ishmael’s Boon: +1 Mysticality
Location: Greta’s Pet Store
Solution:You need to first go into the past at the hardware store and purchase the rights to an outhouse. Request that he put the outhouse at the pet store.
Go into the past at the pet store, and go inside. Attempt to disarm the mousetrap once. You’ll need 5 Moxie to actually disarm it the second time. Once you’ve done that, you can pet Dottie in the present.
Dottie’s Boon: +1 Moxie
Personal side note:I recently had my cat pass away. Her name was Dottie. Finishing this side thing for Dottie in the game and seeing the quote of “Dottie lounges, fat and happy.” made me think of her, and remembering her as always doing exactly that. She was an elegant old lady, a pastel tortiseshell, who took nonsense from nobody, but would lie right on your chest and purr as loud as she could once she trusted you. Miss you, Dottie.
