Judgment is a spin-off of the Yakuza franchise from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, but it still carries some familiar traits from the latter series. In this guide dealing with the stray cats in Judgement, we'll be compiling all detailed list of all the Judgment cat locations in the game, so you can earn the 'Oh Look, A Cat!' Trophy in the game.
Judgment Cat Locations
We should note, before we go any further, that this guide to all the Judgment cat locations will be split up into two parts. The first part will be finding all the cats that you need to track down in order to obtain the 'Oh Look, a Cat!' Judgment Trophy, while the second part will focus on how to find the stray cats that have gone missing in the Masakazu Nekomiya side story mission.
So just below, we'll be revealing every single one of the Judgment cat locations in the main portion of the game. We should note that these can only be found during the investigation sequences, so if you go through an investigation scene without finding the corresponding cat nearby, you've missed your chance to find it!

Judgment Stray Cats Side Story
There's also one side story mission in Judgment which tasks you to find three stray cats for an NPC. To kick off the side story to find stray cats in Kamurocho, you'll firstly need to make it to Chapter 2 of Judgment, which we'd estimate takes around 3 hours. You can now head to Nakamichi Alley, and at the map point that we've marked below, you can find Masakazu Nekomiya.
Chat to this NPC, and he'll give you the side story to track down all the stray cats. Just below, we've outlined the locations of the three cats you need to track down in Judgment, to complete this friend event and raise your standing within Kamurocho. Note that this side mission for the stray cats in Judgment is entirely unrelated to finding all the cats for the 'Oh Look, A Cat!' Trophy.
Judgment Stray Cat Location 1
To find the first stray cat in Judgment after meeting the NPC that gives you the side mission, head to the small alley that's immediately east from your own offices. It's the point on the map which we've marked below, which basically runs between Nakamichi Street and Pink Street. Once here, you'll be on the lookout for the cat below. Simply take a picture of it, and you'll have ticked the first cat off the list.
Judgment Stray Cat Location 2
After finding the first stray cat, the NPC informs you that there are two more to be found. You now need to head to Little Asia, which seems to still be closed down after the events of Yakuza 6. In the small pathway that runs through Little Asia, you'll hear a meow, at which point Yagami will automatically get the drone out to scout for the cat. You can find it nestled on the scaffolding that overlooks the pathway.
Judgment Stray Cat Location 3
For the third and final stray cat of this storyline, you want to head to the very southern end of Kamurocho. At the bottom of Pink Street Entrance, you'll see a conversation button prompt with an NPC, at the map point we've marked below. All you need to do now is talk to this NPC, for the third and final cat of the storyline to be found and rescued.
If you played Yakuza 6 or Yakuza Kiwami 2, you might remember that was a side mission like this, that required you to feed the correct type of food you found to a cat. However this isn't the case with Judgment, as all you need to do is merely track any of the above cats down in Kamurocho, and take a picture of them to count them as having been found.
