Located just outside the main Shinto Shrine, you might wonder if the Lucky Cat in Like a Dragon: Ishin is worth the money she's asking for. A suspicious man nearby is telling people that if he gives the cat money, then she'll return with gifts for them! While it seems like an obvious scam, we can't help but fall for the cats sweet charms all the same.
The Lucky Cat is one of six pets that you can find and adopt in Like a Dragon Ishin. There are three cats and three dogs, all who have unique substories and requirements for you to meet.

How to save the Lucky Cat in Like a Dragon Ishin
Firstly, you'll find the Lucky Cat located by the Shinto Shrine at the very top of the map. In the final corner, a small calico cat will be waiting to interact with you. If you go over, you'll see a man behind you telling his friend about the kind of rewards the cat will bring you in exchange for money.
You'll need to interact with the Lucky Cat a total of five different times, each with a break in between them. Luckily, the Wild Dancer School is located just down from the cat. This serves as both a great way to level up the fighting style and pass the time between opportunities to interact with the cat.
Here are the monetary requirements for each stage of this substory, as well as the rewards.
|2000 mon||Sober Capsule|
|5000 mon||4000 mon|
|1 ryo||5 ryo, and the Lucky Cat herself|
Be warned though, once you've paid the one ryo to the cat in the final stage, she'll lead you to a group of ruffians. It's not the hardest fight in the game, but worth being aware of all the same. Once you've defeated them, you'll have the chance to name your new cat, and send her back to your house!
