The Burgle Cats Guide

In The Burgle Cats, you manage a crew of burglar cats. You’ll have access to a variety of cats, each with their own rarity, stats, and skills. Some cats have their own skills with varying beneficial effects that help your crew with their heists. There are skills for dealing with guard doges, resisting willpower damage from traps, and even scouting the nearby rooms for vaults and traps. In this page, we will discuss the different skills available to certain cats.

What are Cat Skills

These skills or abilities will give your crew the advantage and increase your chances of successfully looting a manor. The cat’s skill can be seen when viewing the cat’s individual info/stat screens. These skills can’t be removed or transferred; however, they can still be leveled up to lower the SP cost for activation.

To use a skill on the field, you’ll need to get enough SP first. This is earned automatically as you explore rooms. Once you have enough, you can activate the skill by pressing the button on the lower-right corner once it lights up and with the word “Ready” visible on it.

How to Level Up Cat Skills

The skill is tied to the cat carrying it. So the only way to increase the skill’s level is by getting the duplicate copy of that same exact cat. Leveling up a skill will lower the SP cost needed to use it.

It is also worth noting that the stats of many skills will vary depending on the rarity of the cat. Basically, the higher the rarity of the skill owner, the more potent the skill will be. For example, the skill Open Sesame (x% chance to open a closed shutter), if the skill’s owner is a normal cat, the chance to open is 40%. However, if you’re using an uber-rare cat with the same skill, that chance to open is at 100%.
