Destiny 2 is filled with dozens of secrets for players to find. Hidden collectibles and quests are just a few things players can find while out in the wild. Arguably what started this trend of adding secrets to every planet was Forsaken’s Dreaming City destination, a fantastical Awoken stronghold that rotates secrets weekly.

One small series of secrets in the Dreaming City is the presence of cat statues. These cats can be interacted with if you have a Small Gift, granting you a random piece of Dreaming City gear. Finding all nine of these statues will grant a unique emblem. For those that are chasing the emblem or are completionists, here is a complete guide to Small Gifts and cat statues in Destiny 2.

There are nine cats to find in the Dreaming City. You’ll find each cat statue in the following location:

  • x3: Divalian Mists
  • x4: Rheasilvia
  • x2: The Strand

Note that some images below do not have a cat statue present. I have created Stasis Crystals where the cat statues normally reside so you know exactly where to look. Also note that if any entries below indicate a direction such as north or south, it is with respect to the Dreaming City map that can be viewed by opening your Ghost. North is facing the top of the map, west is facing the left-hand part of the map, et cetera.
