I've always thought of Geralt of Rivia as a big ol' cat. I know they call him The White Wolf, but come on: The guy is a cat. So it's been bumming me out that after a recent patch to the game, all the cats in the Northern Realms seem to hate the guy even more than they already did. Check out what happens when I go by the Inn of the Seven Cats:
So much hissing! Jeez.
I have unfortunately deleted a lot of my archived Witcher 3 footage, but I feel pretty confident that it didn't used to be that bad. I'm not the only one who noticed — this winter, several threads cropped up with other players asking why the cats so consistently hiss at our favourite Witcher these days.
The cats' hatred is accurate from a lore standpoint — characters in the Witcher books have noted feline distaste for Witchers, for instance. Many players have also wondered and theorised about why Geralt keeps running into a particular cat — Nibbles, seen in the image above.
I'm not sure I'd necessarily call the change in cat behaviour a "bug", though the consistency with which the cats do the same reared hissing animation does seem a bit odd. Intentional or no, it's bumming me out.
