Join the world's largest organization of scouting cats and be purrpared for the biggest adventure of your lives!

What is Cat Scouts?

Cat Scouts is an organization founded to purrmote the development of young cats into good citizens. It is free to join the Cat Scouts community.

Cat Scouts advance through the ranks and attain badges based on merit for activities like camping, friendship, physical prowess, going to the vet and more. They learn teamwork and Cat Scoutcraft through swell activities within their troops and patrols.


Real Cat Scouts take care to wear their uniforms whenever they’re engaged in Cat Scout activities. Here’s the boycat uniform:

And here’s the girlcat uniform:

Click either photo for a higher res version. You’ll need to paste your own head on. There is not yet a merit badge for head pasting.

If you’re still a kitten, your Kit Scout uniforms are here.

Get Started


Need Help?

Email the Denmaster if you have any problems or questions!



You must be at least one year old to become a Cat Scout. If you’re not old enough yet, you can become a Kit Scout, so long as you don’t pester the older scouts and engage in shenanigans. You will be able to get ready for all the fun activities that await you so you’ll be purrpared for the moment you turn one year old.

Girlcats can become Cat Scouts, too, but they are required to sell treats on a card table in front of the supermarket to raise money to fund Cat Scout activities.

Cat Scouts Information Booth

Whether you're new to Cat Scouts or a veteran, we welcome you to drop by the Cat Scouts Information Booth, located under Groups 'n' Troops.

An attentive Cat Scout is almost always on duty at the booth, ready to answer any question you might have. And, there are lots of answers to frequently-asked questions posted. This is also where we'll make announcements.

It's a great place to start when you first join Cat Scouts, but also a way for long-time Cat Scouts to discover new and exciting aspects of Cat Scouting.

A closer look reveals more of what the info booth has to offer. In addition to the attentive on-duty Cat Scout, there's info on the next Cat Scout Jamboree, an event no Cat Scout will want to miss.

Hooliganism is prohibited around the booth.
