"You don't mind if I sharpen my claws on your bed, do you?"Purrl (たま, Tama?) is a snooty cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in all games from the Animal Crossing series to date. Her name is a combination of "purr", which is a sound that cats make, and the gemstone that is prized for its elegance and shine; the pearl. Her Japanese name, 'Tama', is a common name for housecats in Japan. Calicoes have a myth of being a lucky type of cat, so this may relate to the opinion of her being wealthy. Her Wild World picture phrase is a reference to real cats scratching beds and sofas. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to a kitten, a baby or young cat.
— Picture quote, Wild World
AppearancePurrl has the overall appearance of a calico cat, which means she is tri-colored in black, white, and various colors of brown (medium and dark). She has a cobalt blue color inside her ears, and well-defined lower eyelashes which are similar to Mint's eyes (presumably from mascara, hinting that she is a snooty villager). Her eyes always appear to be looking upwards and she has a smiling mouth. Purrl's initial clothing is the Asian shirt, but her outfit in Animal Crossing is a Deep Blue shirt, which matches the inside of her ears; the trend then continued on into the 'New Leaf game, in which she wears the Periwinkle tee (pictured left), which also coincides with the color inside her ears. On rainy days, she carries the red dot umbrella, which is red with white polka dots on it.
Personalityplayer or other villagers in the town, usually criticizing their dress sense or fashion. When talking to the player enough , she will befriend them but still remain a little rude. As with all snooty villagers, she has an interest in clothes over other hobbies. She will have problems socializing with other villagers, usually lazy villagers by disagreeing with their choice of lifestyle or getting offended by a jock villager, who have questioned her physical fitness.
Purrl's house has a very sophisticated theme in Animal Forest and Animal Crossing. Her house has the Perfect Painting and various items from the Exotic Series. She also has two Fizzoids, and a Bird Cage. Purrl has the Concrete Wall and the Checkered Tile in her home. She also has a Hi-Fi stereo.
In Wild World, Purrl no longer has the Perfect Painting or the Caladium, but retains many furniture items first found in her original house. Purrl now has an Exotic Screen and a Cabana Bookcase, but does not have the Mini Fizzoid. She still has the Concrete Wall and the Checkered Tile.
In City Folk, she retains many of the new additions introduced in Wild World, but no longer has a Hi-Fi Stereo, replacing it instead with a Corn Plant. The wallpaper and floor are the same as they were in previous two games. K.K. Swing plays in Purrl's house.
