See: Den Styles for different den appearances


The Den is the player's home. It serves as shelter and protects them from the weather's elements. Time and hunger freezes in the den. After joining a colony, the colony leader will give the player a den to inhabit. The player's den starts with a single room and can be expanded by Molby after they appear in Winter, Year 1.

After Molby's introduction, they will leave a bell in the player’s den that can be used to summon them for upgrades and managing decorations. If the player has fully upgraded the den, Molby cannot be summoned again. If the player creates a custom colony or moves to another colony, all of their expansions and items will stay intact. The player's kittens and mate (if they have them) will also move with them.


The player cat can sleep in in the den's bedroom. When the player sleeps and awakes the next day, they will heal some HP and earn 5 XP. The time the player wakes up depends on what time they went to sleep.


3 PM to 6 PM: Awake at 6 AM.

7 PM to 12 AM: Awake at 8 AM.

12 AM to 6 AM: Awake at 11 AM.

6 AM to 3 PM: Awake at 7 PM.


The player must wait three in-game days for Molby to complete each upgrade and may not start any new upgrades during that time. After three days, the new room will appear in the player's den.
