  • These cats are sufficient due to its high damage output and speed in which it can reach the area of conflict.
  • One might want to send three or more Giraffe Cats (or one Sushi Cat) to back the Cats in a Box up while it deals heavy damage to enemies.
  • Sending out tanky units such as Tank Cat or Bronze Cat is inefficient because the Cats in a Box will greatly outspeed such units and has low range, breaking the point of this strategy.
  • These cat units are very helpful for beginnings, and possibly later, but it can easily be killed in late-game
  • These cats are very good at clearing a bunch of peons protecting a boss.
  • These cats are good against Camelle or Master.A, because of the quick attack animation, fast movement and Area Attack.
  • A good lead off to deal damage to the enemy tower.
  • Their True Form might be very useful against some Black Enemies that has short range, making meatshields able to survive longer.(Recommended NOT to use it against Bun Bun Black.)
