Link the Cat The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Nintendo Wii, Nintendo GameCube Link the Cat is a cat and character of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. He is the cat of Sera, a shopkeeper in Ordon Village who owns Sera's Sundries. The cat always has the name of the player; if Link is given a different name registration, the cat is given the same changed name. Interestingly, while Sera has six photos in her shop, only two of them are of her daughter Beth, while the other four are all of Link the Cat. He originally ran away from Sera, until Link catches a fish which he allows the cat to steal, which causes it to come back; it is then seen on lapping milk from a bowl at the counter of the shop. Link can also converse with Link the Cat in his wolf form.
Myau Phantasy Star Game Boy Advance, Master System, Mega Drive, PlayStation 2, Sega Saturn, Virtual Console Myau (ミャウ?) is an intelligent, talking, cat-like creature called a Musk Cat. Alis meets him in a pet store on Motavia, where the owner is trying to sell the Musk Cat for an exorbitant amount of money, but instead trades him in exchange for a valuable Laconian pot from Alis. Myau is on a mission to save his friend Odin, who has been turned to stone by the creature Medusa. He has the medicine to cure Odin, but cannot open the bottle (for he has no fingers) and so requests Alis' help to save him. Myau uses claws as weapons, can use stronger curative magic than Alis, and can disarm traps in dungeons. Musk Cats also have an interesting "reaction" to the Laerma nuts found on Dezoris, a fact which makes Myau even more valuable.
