    As many of us might have seen by now, there is a very well modeled cat in the Kyoto - Gion photo location... complete with whiskers, moving and blinking eyes.

    My question is, why is the cat there?

    is it truely random or could it be a sweet gesture from a programmer to put their pet cat into the game, thus immortalising it.

    Either way I like the cat... I call him Jenkins haha:dopey:

    The same reason the monkey is in the tree at Trial Mountain I suppose.

    Jp love cats, they appear almost everywere. Maybe part of their "pop culture"??
    And about the monkey/nessie/dog... its quality it's poor compared to the cat.
    Yeah, they love cats!

    That's interesting. Where exactly is it? I've had a look but I can't seem to find it.

    Since we're talking Asian cat, it's most likely obscured by a bush.

    It's those small touches that make the entire thing come alive.

    Been in the Feedback section since day one. Few votes, though.

    Why must I be like that? Why must I chase the cat?

    Its like something to make up for the what the haters here call "flaws" and "dissapointments" in this game.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, here have a cat.

    You must have missed the GT and trees thread, or last years show stopper the sheep in gt5 thread. This has yet to reach that level.

    I can only dream of this thread reaching the levels of the great sheep debate of 2011... or the raging heated scandal that was 2Dtree gate!

    This is more a light hearted affair to see if theres is a genuine story behing this cat and maybe the dog... as there is obvious attention to detail gone into them.

    Dude knows his pussy, good eye!
