  5. Go up the ladder and try to to pick up Gertrude's cat Fluffs. It will hiss at you, and a message will appear saying it might be thirsty. Use Bucket of milk on it and try to pick it up again, only to find out it's hungry this time. Feed the Doogle sardine to the cat. Try to pick it up one more time and find out it doesn't want to leave and can hear kittens mewing in the distance.


  6. Go back down and search the jiggling crate for Fluffs' lost kittens. Use the map above to locate the jiggling crate. Once you have found the Three little kittens use them with Fluffs and you will see a short cutscene. They will then run back home to Gertrude.

  7. Teleport to Varrock or walk back to Gertrude's house. Gertrude will thank you for bringing Fluffs back with her three kittens and reward you with a kitten of your own.

Kitten Care:

To make kittens grow into cats you can use balls of wool with them, have them chase and kill rats, pet them, and feed them. Once your kitten has grown into a cat, P2P users can take it to any Civilian in West Ardougne (assuming that you have done Plague City and Biohazard Quests to get in). They will give you 100 Death runes for your cat. Alternatively you can grow it into an Overgrown cat, Lazy cat, or Wily cat.

For more information check the Cat Care guide.
