      Lets not kid ourselves, cats arent a support class for humans, humans are a support class for cats.

        Domestic cat builds excell at hunting small rodents who have invaded the human's new urban servers, and have encroached heavily in their structures. A human wanting to mitigate this xp stealing, as well as prevent other problems rodents bring, such as the fleas they carry which can bring with it Boubonic Plague as well as other things, could do well to pair up with a cat build that specializes in these takedowns.

        Granted, there are dog builds that are specced into doing similar things, such as the 'rat terrier' sub-class, however they aren't nearly as efficient in zone control as feline builds are.

              I love the yellowstone super caldera as a rumored balance patch. An inland sea of Lava miles deep....I'd call that a global great dying 2.0 that only Tardigrades and the deepest of the deep sea ocean dwellers will likely survive.

                What about unusual pet types. Like Skunks and Ferrets. I guess i mean pets that we can walk around with and not have to have in a cage. Can you do anything with that?

                  Burn all domestic cats. Bullshit aside they're killing all the small birds. My neighbour had a camera in a small bluetit nest and this cat just killed all of them and left the chicks dead. They're just fucked

                          Cats are also very useful for keeping pest classes off your territory. Mice, pigeons, and raccoons are an issue where my base is located. But they don’t get too close because of my cats.

                            Personally, I’m more into the cat class and a few years ago turned a stray cat into a very Op build: the fat, fluffy and loving cat main. This build does absolutely nothing but lay around and meow at humans as they walk by, this has allowed to to survive near the forest meta which has coyotes and wolves.

                                        I'm surprised he didn't mention how useful cats are with dealing with pests. I'm pretty sure that plays a big part in why they were domesticated.

                                          Another person who thinks domesticated cats are a support class. They aren't.


                                          Human and cat players were, originally at least, in a relationship via symbiosis.
                                          Human players would secure a cat players territory by merging it with their own and in return the cat players would safeguard crops and farm animal players by reducing the amount of griefing mice players as well as the plague bearing rat players. Over time however cat players realised that by looking cute they could manipulate humans into giving them free loot. This would be at the cost of their intimidation sub-stats but considering the massive boost in skill points they'd get it'd allow them to spec into other skills, such as still hunting, which allows a cat player to hunt whilst wearing a bell, and energy surge, which can give top level cat players 10 minutes of max speed for a small exhaustion debuff.

                                          These days cat players somewhat rest on the laurels that veteran players have built up over time by doing very little of the hunting (at least as a necessity. Most of them do it for fun now) and instead enjoy the life of luxury that the human players willingly give them. More of these cats are unfortunately getting obesity modifiers due to overeating without the options to exercise by being trapped inside by human players.


                                          There are rumours that some cats have managed to spec into the "sense death" skill, which allows them to detect whether human players are dying, as a method to alert other human "allies" but the majority of these players are posers who are searching out hot spots left by the human's electric blankets.

                                            Some dog builds like pitbulls are actually F tier support builds as they usually end up griefing low level human players.

                                              Cats actually used to be a good support class as a pest control for rats.

                                                Yes. Dogs have what we call emotional abilities. They are the npc you choose the nicer dialogue option for. They are family, and we are part of them, and on most occasions that's enough to make you feel better.
                                                Cats are useless pieces of fur that hang around. Disrespectfully.

                                                    I think the house cat is the best build over all. The sheer amount of xp you can farm is ridiculous. Food from the human class for using a voice line or emote, easy lower class rodent kills in the human bases and you can still play a viable hunter cat class as well. Also you can remove the risk of losing the reproduction skill by having a part time support class human player that will leave food for you on the front porch if you choose to go the feral cat route. You can also choose between a multitude of skins to either attract attention or blend in with your surroundings. Climbing trees, hissing, and even swiping are all good ways to defend from your main counter player in the dog. Most dog mains won’t bother giving to much effort to killing you if you just fight back a little because most dog mains have gotten lazy now.

I use my dogs as guards from thiefs and they also protect my chicken coop from foxes. My cats are keeping my storage and coop clear from mise and snakes and they also do a great job at keeping away huge insects and birds from my big vegetable garden so i don't have to use insecticides at all

                                                            Yes but the origin of cats as support is in ancient egyptian servers in the early Holocene. Where human mains tolerated and encouraged the encroachment of cats in close proximity to their food stores which attracted many low tier prey builds. Being an example of a symbiotic relationship rather than support at first. And still is.

I don't think that the toxoplasmosis players are to blame for Cat's popularity. Human players keep choosing cats as their support class because they are the best defense against rodent players and the disease players who partner with them. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/darwins-subterranean-world/201711/why-we-have-cats

By killing rodents, they also stop humans from being infected by a wide variety of diseases including the plague, which is carried by fleas that latch onto rats.

                                                                                        What is dangerous however is when a dog contracts toxoplasmosis and becomes immune to a cat's intimidate moveset before deciding to gank said cat out of boredom or just needing that last bit of exp for a level up
