It wasn’t so long ago that the only people interested in Exploding Kittens were cat breeders and ordinance experts. But, recently, the general public has become fascinated with these captivating creatures, many of which possess the powers to defy the laws of biology, physics, and even common sense.
Unlike conventional felines, which confine their activities to eating, sleeping, and disgorging the occasional hairball, Exploding Kittens can (among a great many other things) fly, swim, predict the future, wield weapons like swords, and pilot armored vehicles. And, of course, some of them explode.
Clearly, we are not dealing with typical cats here. Which is why we have painstakingly prepared, for the first time ever, this essential field guide to better inform enthusiastic but unsuspecting potential owners about each breed’s fortes and foibles.
On the following pages we introduce you to forty of the most well-known Exploding Kitten varieties. Why does the Rainbow-Ralphing Cat vomit rainbows? How does one grow a Cattermelon? And is it safe to keep a Catnado in a trailer park? (No, it isn’t.) Learn all this and more.
Remember, no Exploding Kittens were harmed in the making of this book. Though the same cannot be said for its editor, whose left pinkie was preternaturally lopped off by a Sword Cat. We’re only a little bit sorry.
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND CONVENIENCE, EACH CAT PROFILE OFFERS MUCH (BUT NOT ALL) OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION.
How did this creature come to be?
What color are they? How much do they weigh? Can they fly, swim, or travel in space?
Does your favorite cat suffer from a shy bladder, or lead a dangerous double life?
Do they procreate in the usual way, or via seeds or asexual division? Or can they reproduce at all?

LOOKING FOR A SPECIFIC KIND OF EXPLODING KITTEN? WE’VE DIVIDED THEM UP BASED ON THEIR MOST PREVALENT TRAITS.
If your idea of a fun morning is a five-mile run, consider the Helicatpter (here), which can easily match your pace, thanks to the three-foot-long rotors on its head. Or say Namaste to the absurdly flexible Yoga Cat (here).
Couch potatoes can try the Avocato (here), the Hairy Potato Cat (here), or the Cattermelon (here). They don’t just dislike exercise; they’re physically incapable of doing it.
Read about the lava-spitting Volcato (here) or the trailer park–leveling Catnado (here).
If you’re not afraid of a slow, painful demise, consider the bloodthirsty Great White Cat (here), or the planet-devouring majesty of the Imploding Kitten (here).
Lock up your belongings and consider taking in an Imposter Cat (here).
Hit the beach with Bikini Cat (here), sulk artfully with Emo Emu Cat (here), or boost your facial hair game with Beard Cat (here).
Numerous breeds are as succulent-sounding as they are cute. There’s the burger-like Royale with Fleas (here), the warm and sweet Catpuccino (here), the always approachable Catifornia Roll (here), and the festive Tacocat (here). Warning: All these cats are, in fact, inedible.
Try Rainbow-Ralphing Cat (here). Full stop. Seriously, this cat spits rainbows—it’s got “weird” totally covered.
