Neko Atsume: Wallpaper Guide

What is Neko Atsume?

Neko Atsume is a kitty collecting mobile game in which the player puts down food in their garden to attract lots of different cats. When a specific cat visits your garden enough times, it will leave you a present called a memento. Each one is unique for each cat! The aim of the game is to collect all kitties in your cat book and to collect all mementos from each cat.

How Do I Access the Wallpapers?

You can access the wallpaper by navigating to the shop section, via the in-game menu.

All of the wallpapers cost the same, each one is twenty gold fish. Gold fish can be earned via the cats that visit your garden, they will leave fish after visiting. The player must 'unlock' each wallpaper by achieving specific requirements.

You can download the wallpaper at any time after purchasing it, it will be stored on the player's device under the image file "Neko Atsume".

Questions & Answers

Question: What about the last wallpaper that it seems no one has unlocked?

Answer: This is the only wallpaper that is in the game's code, but is not active in the game yet. It cannot be unlocked until an update that would make it live. Someone has put a link up to the image on Imgur however: https://i.imgur.com/r1z2qJA.png.

Question: Why won’t the 15th wallpaper come to my gallery?

Answer: You need to make sure that you have completed both of the steps required:

1. Have Sunny and Callie visit your yard 100 times each

2. Buy the Goldfish Bowl. (Worth 10 goldfish)

These will both take a long time if you have completed all of these steps and still have an issue, you should raise a ticket in the app with the creators so that they are aware of the issue.

Question: Tubbs has visited ninety times and I have his memento. Maybe that makes it unlock. I don’t actually know because I had automatically unlocked it. Actually, it may be because of the sashimi boats. What do you think?

Answer: It has been confirmed that you must purchase and place a sashimi boat to unlock this wallpaper.

Question: What does buy 21 pages mean do you have to buy all the goodies on the page or just one goodie on the page?

Answer: You must get all of the goodies on the page, it requires buying every item in the game.
