The Catcoon is a neutral Mob in the Reign of Giants DLC, spawning from a Hollow Stump. It will wander around, pouncing at small creatures and playing with various objects, sometimes destroying them. When killed, a Catcoon will drop Meat and has a 33% chance of dropping a Cat Tail.
When it sees a small Bird, Rabbit, Moleworm, Butterfly, or Bee, it will pounce on it and kill it. Catcoons are aggressive towards Pengulls and Hounds and will attack them if they get close enough. This generally leads to the Catcoon being killed in retaliation. Catcoons will also attack a Glommer, even if players have befriended both, so caution should be taken. Catcoons are hostile to Webber, since he is considered a Monster.
Catcoons can be befriended by giving them food or "toys", and they will give "gifts" to the player by coughing up items such as Rot and Cut Grass as if it is a hairball. Each item given to the Catcoon will add a tenth of a day (48 sec) to the time they spend following the player (up to a maximum of 1 day) and force the next hairball to be sooner. The item that they give depends on the number of times they hack before coughing it up. Currently, there are two lists for neutral and friendly Catcoons.
Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill Catcoons when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.

- The name "Catcoon" is a portmanteau of the words "Cat" and "Raccoon".
- Hollow Stumps become deserted after spawning 9 Catcoons. This is a reference to the belief that cats have 9 lives.
- If a Pile o' Balloons is used to befriend a Catcoon, the Catcoon will drop it on death.
- Catcoons will steal any Grave Digger items left on the ground among other things, therefore it's advisable to keep them in Chests if any Catcoons live nearby.
