Hidden cats are NPCs in Destiny 2. They were added in the Forsaken DLC. There’s a handful of them across several maps. When you approach them, the game will most probably tell you you lack something. However, if you turn up with the appropriate item, the cat will exchange it for a piece of legendary gear. That item is called Small Gift. Once you use it, the cat will disappear. If you want to know where to find all of these gift-giving felines, we suggest your continue reading our Destiny 2 cat locations guide.
How to get Small Gift?
In order to use the cat, you’ll first have to find a Small Gift. It’s an item that drops randomly when doing activities, so there’s not much wisdom to it. Just keep doing stuff and you’ll eventually get it. It does seem you have to have unlocked the Dreaming City first, as most people report getting them in Dreaming City heroic events.
Where to find hidden cats in Destiny 2?
The first one we found was in the Dreaming City, in the Divalian Mists. Go to the northeast of the area. When you see the giant doorway leading into the mountain, turn left and head towards the cliff. Once you’re there, look over the edge and you’ll see platforms and ledges leading down. Use them to safely descend until you see a cave mouth. Go inside and follow the narrow tunnel until you reach a set of glowing blue crystals. The cat will be sitting beside them.
The next one was in the observatory at the Spine of Keres. In order to get there, you should head to the southwestern corner of Divalian Mists, then go through the tunnel with the glowing blue crystals. Follow the path until you reach the observatory. Enter the building and use the platforms in the inner chamber to climb up above the entrance. You’ll find the cat next to the window that overlooks the bridge, sitting by a weird globe.
For the next one, go the The Strand, the area east of the landing point in the Dreaming City. As soon as you enter it (when the observatory comes into view), turn right. Hug the wall until you reach the big stone gate. You’ll see some trees growing from the cliffs there. Climb up the ledges until you reach the top one, then shimmy around the corner and you’ll find the cat behind the tree.
Then we’re off to the Gardens of Esila. When you get the previous one, go through the stone gate with the giant statue of a woman and into the corridor, then follow it until you’re in the garden. As soon as you enter the garden proper, look to the left and you’ll see a big rock outcrop. Climb to the top and you’ll find the cat next to a tree.
