Hogwarts Legacy's disturbing cat secret has ruined the game

There’s so much to talk about when it comes to Hogwarts Legacy but it’s the game’s cats that are surprisingly proving to be the talk of the town. If you’re yet to dive into the game, yes, you can pet the cats and if you’re a PlayStation 5 owner, you’ll feel and hear their sweet purring through your DualSense. Players have been doing much more than petting the cats though.

Shortly after release, Hogwarts Legacy players started using Wingardium Leviosa to yeet cats to infinity and beyond which, needless to say, is not a nice thing to do. Things then took a turn for the worse, as if yeeting wasn’t already bad enough. Players decided to use Avada Kedavra - the killing curse - on cats. To fight back, devs jokingly gave cats a repellant shield so the curse would rebound and kill the player. Now though, a disturbing secret has been discovered relating to one cat in particular.

Enjoy an enchanting tour of Hogsmeade below.

Reddit user PrimPygmyPuff took to the site to write, “To those who pet every cat they see: there’s a good chance you’re probably petting some random mangy old dude.” If you’re thinking, huh? Hang around for the context. There’s a newspaper article that can be found in-game titled ‘Pet Cat Unmasked as Animagus Neighbour.’ Essentially, someone was going around pretending to be a cat. Creepy.

The Reddit user did get one detail wrong - it’s actually a woman pretending to be the cat as opposed to a ‘mangy old dude’. Either way, it’s still creepy. “An unregistered Animagus was apprehended by the Ministry last night after it came to light that she had been posing as her neighbour’s cat for the past fifteen years,” the article read. The culprit originally posed as a cat because they thought their neighbour,Tabitha Smithers, was using dark magic. She was actually using catnip - which does have magical properties I suppose if you have a cat snoot.

EDS_Athlete said, “Idc, still gonna pet grandpa kitty,” while GrazhdaninMedved added, “Don’t care. Cat is cat.” Panda-delivery wrote, “Okay but I’m still gonna pet ‘em.” The call of the cat pets is too strong. Newspaper articles can be found at a stand in the centre of Hogsmeade.
