This, uh, cat fancier's magazine has no redeeming value. You'll learn nothing of use to you in the wastes when you read about...cats.Fallout 2 Official Strategies & Secrets

Cat's Paw magazine is a Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics item. It is part of two side-quests in Fallout 2.


In Fallout, the item has no use and description. Its only descriptions are "You have no idea" and "Upon further inspection, you still have no idea what this is."

In Fallout 2, if the Chosen One collects 10 magazines and brings them to Miss Kitty, they can receive a special Cat's Paw issue no.5 "that contains a very interesting article on energy weapons" in New Reno. Typhon in Broken Hills will also ask them to find an issue for him.

Cat's Paw is actually a real-life brand of rubber heels manufactured in Canada. The image for the item in Fallout appears on the box for a pair of those heels.
