Purple Cat (miniquest) is a miniquest which is unlocked after the completion of the Swept Away quest, and was released during the 2008 Halloween event.

Overview[edit | edit source]

If you bring a hellcat of any kind to be dyed, it will be reverted to a normal cat.

Any form of cat will work for this quest and be able to be turned purple; including pet kitten.

The puzzle (take two)[edit | edit source]

  • This is essentially a smaller puzzle box, see the Treasure Trail Puzzle box guide, and can be solved using the same methods. By solving one of the vertical columns the rest is no different than the first puzzle.

Finishing up[edit | edit source]

  • Once the puzzle has been solved, open the chest and then search it, to obtain a vial of magic unguent.
  • Take this back to Wendy, along with a cat, to dye your cat purple. If you don't want to turn a cat purple, just bring the unguent without the cat. Wendy will take the unguent, and the miniquest will be completed.

Congratulations, miniquest complete!
