The 'Cat Lady' is a Rare Character that can be encountered and recruited at Trader Camps. She joins the party if given 20 food while there is a spare space in the party roster.

Cat lady loves cats above all other things and requires large quantities of Food to keep in the party. Occasionally at night Cat Lady will steal 12 food (or all remaining if under 8) to feed her cats.

If the party gives her food but she doesn't join them, the interaction with the cats she has will boost party morale. Giving 8 Food will result in +2 Morale while giving her under 8 will result in +1 Morale.

Cat lady uses a cat claw as her default attack, instead of the usual punch. This combined with the ability to summon cats makes her a very beneficial, if expensive character to recruit.

Encounter Text

Upon Encounter

The group detects an overpowering stench, different from the usual smell of death.

They follow it to a house full of cats. No one has seen a cat for ages!

A woman is among the cats, and she asks right away if the group has any spare cat food.

Give her 8 food (Party Full)

[Name] is delighted by the makeshift cat food!

She shows the group her special reserve of cats dressed in little clothes and the ones that are less likely to bite hard enough to draw blood.

Give her 8 food (Party slot available)

Much like the cats she loves, [Name] now sees you as a source of food that she can then give directly with her cats. She starts following you around.

Give her x food *

[Name] seems disappointed by the amount of food you gave her, but only for the briefest moment.

Thanks for the cat food! Please pet the kitties!

  • (If food is below 8, but higher than 0 | x = remaining food number)

Give her 20 food (Party Full)

Much like the cats she loves, [Name] now sees you as a source of food that she can then give directly with her cats. She starts following you around.

Cat Lady joins your team.


"I need more cat food!"

Cat Lady made most of the Canadian wildlife extinct, due to her army of cats.

Special Abilities

Cat Lady is able to summon cat allies whenever she enters a scavenging mission or is hurt.

Additionally Cat Lady is unique in that she will not leave the party if her morale drops too low. She will instead cheer herself and the rest of the party up with Kittens. The kittens will get into the food supplies however and cause a loss of 8 Food.

If the party's food resource drops below 4 she will complain about the food situation and leave the party, taking the remaining food with her.


  • Cat Lady was initially scrapped from Death Road to Canada for reasons unknown, she was however announced as being re-implemented by Rocketcat, December 2016.
