A Cat-O'-9-Tails is a blue cat enemy only encountered Donkey Kong Country 2. Cat-O-9-Tails are fairly rare enemies. In spite of its name it has seven tails.


If a Cat-O'-9-Tails spots either Diddy or Dixie Kong it will attempt to spin into them and whip them with its tails. The Kongs must avoid this attack and wait for a Cat-O'-9-Tails to collapse from dizziness, it will then become vulnerable to being jumped on the head. If the Kongs jump into a Cat-O'-9-Tails from above while it is spinning they will end up being flung into the air. Also, while Cat-O'-9-Tails is spinning, cartwheels are completely useless against it.
