The Cat Beast is a mechanical monster built by the Fabrication Machine and the first machine that is introduced in the 2005 short and in the film.

Its main purpose is to retrieve the Talisman and use the artifact to reawaken the Machine.

2005 shortEdit



A close up of the Beast's claws.

The Cat Beast is a four-legged robot with a cat skull for a head, a metal skeleton, different types of knives, screws, and other sharp objects for the spine, a lightbulb in one socket and a green eye in the other. One of the machines foot is a fork. 


The Cat Beast first appears slinking around a junk pile, seeming to be searching for something. The Talisman on its collar glows green, and it stalks away. Later, it finds 9 & 5, and sneaks up on them. 9 hides in a can, and 5 stays out to try and fight, but the Cat Beast comes up from behind and grabs him, managing to remove his right arm and trap him. It then steals 5's soul with the tailsimen.

After a while, we see the Cat Beast again, this time, it's in the junkpile's in the frabrication machine's lair, searching for something, and you can  momentarily get a glimpse of 5's fabric patched onto its back. It see's 9 and begins chasing him. Then, after following him again, it spots lights flashing, and a fake stitchpunk moving around. Believing it to be real, the Cat Beast makes its way over and attacks. By the time it realizes it's not a real stitchpunk, its claws have already been stuck into the oil, momentarily trapping it. 9 leaps down and removes the collar with the Talisman, then runs off.

The Cat Beast soon gets itself unstuck, and it chases after 9. After a little, they come to a plank hanging over a large drop-off, and 9 walks to the end of it. He goes to turn after a moment, but the machine has already caught up, and has trapped him. It walks towards him, roars, and continues forward, but becomes spooked by the drop underneath it, and backs up. 9 leaps off and activates his trap, spinning a lever and pushing a heavy book off of another nearby plank. The book is roped to the Cat Beast's perch, and causes it to fall. The Cat Beast desperately attempts to climb off in time but doesn't manage it, and falls into the pit below, the plank falling onto it and killing it.

2009 filmEdit


Cat Beast 3

The Cat Beast as it appears in the film.

The Cat Beast appears to have been hastily made, since the Fabrication Machine was near its "hibernation". Although metallic, the Cat Beast has a cat skull as its head, with one eye red and the other as a usable "flashlight"; there were some cat bones attached to its arms and legs, including a metallic tail, to give it a more cat-like appearance. It has retractable claws and night vision, as well as a large amount of strength and an unexpected amount of agility. It uses its metallic claws to attack, its jaw mouth to carry anything bigger than the Talisman, and a little slot to carry little objects, such as the Talisman, hanging below its head. The spines on its back, made of assorted sharp objects, serve as another means of protection.

Unlike its 2005 short film counterpart, the Cat Beast in the 2009 film does not have any burlap skin on its back and its eye is red instead of green. They both roar, but the 2009 Cat Beast roars at a higher and scarier level, sounding almost like a lion's roar, scary enough to send shivers down your spine.

Role in the filmEdit

9 Cat Beast by FreddyJasonV

Shortly after 9 meets 2, the Cat Beast sneaks up on them. 9 hides in a can and 2 stays out to protect him, but he doesn't look behind him quick enough and the Cat Beast pins him down, lifting him up towards his face. 2 throws his double-bladed spear at it and it throws him at a nearby cart, momentarily knocking him out and causing him to drop the Talisman. It goes and picks up the device, studying it for a moment. 9 retreats into the can and gains the Beast's attention. It uses its lightbulb eye to peer into the can, but is unable to see him. It moves away for a moment, and then suddenly sticks its paw inside, trying to feel around for 9. It's unable to reach him, however, and 2 soon throws a rock at it. It walks back towards him, and snatches him up into its jaws. 9 manages to escape the can while this is happening, though in his haste he rips a bit of his fabric off of his left shoulder. The Beast picks the Talisman up and places it into the holder in its collar, then runs off with 2 towards The Factory.

Later, the Cat Beast holds 2 captive inside a bird cage in the abandoned factory. It was about to use the stolen talisman to activate the Fabrication Machine, only to discover 9 and 5 freeing the captured 2 upon investigation of a noise. It begins to attack the intruders. However, another stitchpunk named 7 rescues the other three stitchpunks and destroys the Cat Beast by beheading it with her spear.

  • The Stitchpunks are about the size of mice compared to the cat.
  • A human could easily stop the Beast, since its only the size of a domesticated cat.
  • 7 may have been captured by the beast and put in the cage 2 was in. This was where she must have found the bird skull, and it would explain her missing the number on her back.
  • The bones used on it are like the doll's head on the Seamstress - proof of the Fabrication Machine's tactic of using anything it can find to build robots.
  • The Cat Beast has strange symbols etched into the outer rim of its left eye socket; the reasons behind their presence are unknown. You can see them in the picture above.
