Though these companions only reach the height of a man’s knee, they are still formidable companions. When battling enemies larger than them, nekomatas will flee into trees, up into the highest branches where their enemies cannot follow. Depending on how angry the nekomata in question is, it may even drop down onto their attacker’s head. Once their target has been clawed into oblivion, the nekomata companion will usually hightail it. It is to be noted that these creatures will happily attack any humans they deem enemies, though they usually only leave deep scratches. Nekomatas are quite good at hunting, too, and do not rely on humans for their food - although they’ll often steal treats. Nekomatas eat a variety of things - fish, small birds, rodents. They have a deep love for cream, though, and will often break into the kitchen in search of it. These cats also have a strange desire for coffee, a bitter drink which gives those who consume it a burst of energy. Despite everyone trying to keep this beverage far from nekomatas, the cats still drink any they can find. Unattended mugs will no doubt be found empty. It’s not hard to figure out which cat drank it, either - they become unbearably playful, darting across rooms and attacking anything that moves.

Though these felines look much like those found in any town, they are unique creatures. Nekomatas are highly intelligent, and don’t seem to consider themselves companions. They come and go as they please, and seldom answer to commands. Despite their headstrong natures, they respond well to affection, and bond easily with their magi. On colder nights, nekomatas can be found curled up by a fireplace, or alongside their magi. These companions wander where they will. Should a building have a door or window open, it’s likely a nekomata will enter, even if it’s a villager’s home. Nekomatas can be very stubborn if there is a certain place they want to go. They have no qualms against climbing, and are found on roofs and in trees more than on land. Their distinctive tails give them excellent balance, and they fearlessly prowl along the highest towers and cliffs. Falling is of little consequence to them, as they always land on their feet unharmed.
