You don't mind if I sharpen my claws on your bed, do you?
― Picture quote, Wild World

Purrl (たま, Tama?) is a snooty cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in all games to date, apart from Pocket Camp. Her name is a combination of a cat's purr and the gemstone pearl, and her Japanese name, "Tama", is a common name for housecats in Japan. Her saying, "Let them drink cream" is a reference to the unconfirmed quote by Marie Antoinette: "Let them eat cake". She has the fashion hobby.


Purrl in Animal Crossing

Purrl has the overall appearance of a calico cat, being tri-colored in black, white, and various shades of brown. She has a cobalt blue color inside of her ears which is also present on the paw pads on her feet, and she also has eyes that are fixed in an upward gaze with well-defined lower eyelashes. Due to her lack of makeup, she could be confused with a normal villager. Purrl's clothing has changed in almost every game she's appeared in: in Animal Forest all through Animal Forest e+, she wears the Moody Blue Shirt, in Wild World, City Folk and New Leaf she wears the Periwinkle Tee, and in New Horizons, she wears the navy blue Kung-Fu Tee.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.

Purrl has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Purrl will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Purrl will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jock villagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.


Purrl's house has a very sophisticated theme in Animal Forest and Animal Crossing. Her house has the Perfect Painting and various items from the Exotic Series. She also has two Fizzoids, and a Bird Cage. Purrl has the Concrete Wall and the Checkered Tile in her home. She also has a Hi-Fi stereo. Prior to New Horizons, her favorite song was K.K. Swing.

In Wild World, Purrl no longer has the Perfect Painting or the Caladium but retains many furniture items first found in her original house. Purrl now has an Exotic Screen and a Cabana Bookcase but does not have the Mini Fizzoid. She still has the Concrete Wall and the Checkered Tile.

In City Folk, she retains many of the new additions introduced in Wild World, but no longer has a Hi-Fi Stereo, replacing it instead with a Corn Plant. The wallpaper and floor are the same as they were in the previous two games.

In New Leaf, Purrl's house is different than it was in previous versions. It now has a modern Asian theme. She replaced the Concrete Wall with the Exquisite Wall, which gives her home a more comfortable feeling than the old wallpaper. Furthermore, she added more furniture items from the Classic Series: the sofa, the bed, and the table, which has an Azalea Bonsai on it. She still owns the Exotic Screen and gains an Exotic Table with a Tea Vase on its top and an Exotic Wall Shelf as well. To fill up the room, there is also a Croton, an Antique Clock, a Retro TV, and a Hi-Fi Stereo. Purrl also has a new Gyriod, a Strumbiod.

Profile Purrl thinks her eyelashes are her best feature, but her distinctive spotted coloring is what really sets her apart from other cats. The question is, is that birdcage in her house holding a pet... or a snack?
