Dead Cat is a passive item in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (TBOIR)
Guppy - Isaac's pet cat. The cat is dead and the body has 2 flies surrounding it so possibly the cat has been dead for a while and the corpse is beginning to rot.
- Isaac has one heart container but 9 lives - whenever Isaac dies, he respawns with 1 heart container. This can happen a total of 9 times.
Isaac gains a cat familiar that follows him around: (note that in the screenshot below Isaac also has X-Ray Vision and Magic 8 Ball. Only the cat familiar is part of the appearance change from Dead Cat.)
The familiar disappears once all 9 lives are lost.
- The Dead Cat does not remove Soul Hearts or Black Hearts
- The familiar follows Isaac but does not really do anything useful.
- If you do a deal in the Devil Room for this item and you only had one heart left you still live and end up with one heart.
- The Dead Cat can be found in Curse Rooms, Devil Rooms, and Red Chests.
Dead Cat has the following Synergies and Interactions with other items:
|Cursed Skull||You only have one red heart so you get teleported whenever you take damage (annoying synergy)|
|Suicide King||Can use Suicide King safely to spawn lots of items.|
|Guppy's Paw||Turn red heart container to 3 Soul Hearts after reviving.|
