Cats are a species of small predatory carnivorous animals that were valued by humans before the Great War for their companionship and ability to hunt vermin, such as rodents, snakes, scorpions, and other household pests.

After the Great War, many cats in what used to be the United States were hunted for food because they were an easy prey[1] until few domestic specimens were left, although some still survive as witnessed in The Commonwealth.

Some cats were possibly thrown into the FEV vats by the Master in the Mariposa Military Base and the Vault-Tec scientists in Vault 87, together with humans, dogs and other animals. The misshapen centaurs are the result of this mix.
