Shadow CAT is a monster found in FNaC3.

The character is a purplish and more monstrous version of CAT and only appears in the Dreamscape, which is entered in-between the game's nights.

Shadow Cat only appears (Instead of Shadow RAT, Occasionally) in the Dreamscape before Night 3, where he will jumpscare Mary Schmidt, if she stands in the darkness for too long.

Unlike Shadow RAT, Shadow CAT never appears in the protagonist's bedroom.


  • After the release of the third game, Emil Macko reveals that Shadow Candy is the CAT's soul, in his noncorporeal out-of-animatronic form. He started off as a Shadow CAT in the third game, but by the first game, he had evolved into what he is now.
