Kat possesses superior intellect as shown in "Dial "B" For Babysitter " where he plots a plan against Old Lady Munson, but it was later Revealed in the episode he was only trying to contact other Kats in space. He also has TWO extremely advanced brains as shown in "Nip/Duck."
Kat can survive and recover from the punishment which could seriously injure if not kill normal cats and even humans let alone a human with considerably less damage. Examples:
- In "Trick or Threat" you can see Kat run right into a fence and break it without suffering any damage to himself.
- In "You Scream, I Scream" he survives electric shock and explosion from the potato nuclear reactor that powered Burt's car.
- He has also survived burns that would clearly kill a human or normal cat. In "Mind Games" he survives being covered by lava from Volcano, he also survived being burned by a focused beam of sunlight, that was hot enough to vaporize metal in "Bringin' the Heat".
- In the short "You And Whose Armour?" he survived a direct hit from two rockets.
Kat also has shown that he is acid-proof. In "Kat to the future" Coop shots him with the same acid that previously burned walls and Coop's hair, similar to the acid that Kat spits with. Later we see him covered in said substance, without any burns or negative effects.
Kat could regenerate serious injuries that would kill normal cats or humans, his burns and scratches also disappear after a brief period of time. Sometimes he is forced to wear bandages by Millie even if these are not needed. Examples:
- In "Storm Drained" Kat gets struck by lightning, it causes his to turn into a pile of dust, but he regenerates from it, and backs on his feet after few moments.
- In "U.F. Float" the small explosion of Kat's self-made rocket fuel visibly damages his ears, but he easily "shakes-off" his damage.
- In "Cheeks Of Evil" Kat regenerates burns and bee stings after changing his shape into liquid.
- In "House Of Scream" he gets impaled by metal tips of spears and judging by trajectory, one of them goes through his head.
He also possesses a different ability to recreate himself completely, by shedding his skin turning into a group of thermite-like creatures and recombining himself inside of a cocoon, as seen in "Itty Bitty Kitty Committee".
Kat has survived being encased in a block of ice on multiple occasions without any visible evidence of problems like frostbite, a condition that can cause humans to lose limbs or die when the water in their tissue crystallizes into ice.
This happens on Earth in Play N'Ice and Fangs for the Memories. Also in The Kat Went Back Part 1 he survives the vacuum of outer space clutching to a space ship as it travels through a wormhole to the Kat Planet, arriving encased in ice.
Ability to hold his breath
Kat could hold his breath for a long time, as shown in "Down the Drain", while he was moving through sewage pipes with no air, a similar situation happened in "Menace the Dennis". He also was able to survive being encased in a block of ice or even outer space void, without any oxygen.
High relative strength
He is stronger than Earth animals his size. Examples:
- In "Nip/Duck," Kat holds Dennis ransom by holding his dad's piano above him (while Dennis is sleeping) in exchange for his X-rays. He was holding it easily using the only paw.
- In Me Coop, You Kat he is able to push a black 4-drawer dresser with a large purple chair on top of it, a stack of furniture that rises past the door frame, across the room.
- In "The Three Aarghs" he could lift a stack of metal household stuff including two washing machines, fridge, cooker, TV and two boilers.
- In "King of the Pipsqueaks" he could push radio tower-sized metal installation across the yard to hide it in the shed.
- In "Rat A Phooey" He could throw a dog powerfully enough to break a stone wall.
Kat has almost indestructible claws that can break just about any material. They are so strong that the vet needed a diamond-tipped cutter to clip them, and even then the cutter was ruined, even though Kat was able to resharpen them easily enough. This is Kat's most common attack against Coop. He has also been known to shoot lasers from them and weld with them, it is unknown if they are shiny enough to focus light or because of his cybernetics. Probably the latter because he has been shown to do this indoors. In "Kid Vs Kat Vs Christmas" we see that he is able to write with his claws on paper.
Claw energy beam
A narrow green beam of energy Kat uses:
- Against Mr. Cheeks and his hamsters in the saloon
- in Hot Dog Day to escape from the floor compartment Coop traps him in by removing the golden hot dog, though this may have been the red handgun or bazooka he is using later (or they might be upgrades) since the blast comes from off-screen.
- "Laser Guided Furball" while guiding Honeyfluff to attack and while he cut down a tree that Coop was sitting on.
- "Coop D'Etat" while he shots at lines that planet models were hanging on.
- "Rebel with a Claw" while he shots and breaks skateboard that Mr. kitten was riding.
Claw heat rings
Kat uses this ability to create an expanding pulse-ray of heat, as shown in a short called "Movie Mayhem" and in the episode "How the Test Was Won." With this Ability, he can melt many objects. He used heat rays also in a short called "Boy Meats Grill."
Claw heat emanation
The power to produce heat from his claws. He uses this to melt the ice, steel, iron, about anything.
As seen in:
- "Play N'Ice"
- "Dire Education"
- "Over the Radar"
- "Hot Dog Day" when, resembling the title, Growler is launched steaming down the street while Kat smirks in the next shot with a red claw-tip, his paw cocked like a gun, with a trail of black smoke coming out of it.
Claw fire productionBoys Vs. Bus" and blue in "Fumblebee". He uses this ability to attack or utilizes it as a lighter equivalent.
Opening locks with claws
Kat is able to use his claw as a key equivalent. He could quickly open doors or even start a car engine using this ability. Examples:
- In "Tickled Pink" he starts a garbage truck.
- In "Crouching Cooper, Hidden Kat" he opens doors of the House of Swap.
Kat often combines the hard sharpness of his claws with their heat-generating power for an amplified attack:
- In Hot Dog Day he is able to cut through a tree over triple his arm's length in diameter using a single finger.
- In "Over the Radar" he cuts metal bars in the same manner.
Ocular heat emanation
In Special Christmas 2/2, Kat uses X-ray vision to see which present holds the Captain Blasteroid Rocket Ship. It is unknown whether he can use X-ray vision in both eyes or just the left one as we only see him use his left eye in the episode. This proves that he is indeed part cyborg.
Ability to see in complete darkness
Kat could get a view of surrounding even without any sources of light. As we can see in "Kat Of Diamonds", while he was using blackout device to steal diamonds or while using remote to control bigger blackout disk.
Kat possesses five rows of razor-sharp serrated fangs made out of titanium that can break through most Earth metals and even the toughest material in the universe, durasteel; one example is when he bent the hockey net Coop was guarding during "Play N'Ice." Another time is when he goes crazy in the episode "Trespassers Will Be Persecuted," because he has been eating catnip; if you notice in the episode, he actually bites off a piece of Old Lady Munson's gnome.
The power to make a pulse, even though he hasn't got one; it is unknown how he is able to do this, but it's probably thanks to one of the Machines he has inside his body.
Extendible prehensile tail
The power to extend his tail to any length and manipulate it like another limb. Kat also uses his tail sometimes as a lasso. One obvious hint of this power is that Kat's tail is mostly curled up during the show; this proves it has the ability to extend outward.
One advantage that Kat uses all the time is that he doesn't have any hard parts in his entire body at all, just muscle, and the power to change into any shape or form without injuring himself. Kat used this ability on countless occasions, usually to break into a building, or even to break out of something. Kat could also extend his mouth in order to eat something bigger, he even ate Coop in one bite, in short, called "Catboy".
Kat is capable of moving with extreme velocity. Being blurred while doing so. Examples:
- In "Rat A Phooey" while he chases and scares rat out of Burtonburger's house.
- In "Just Me and Glue" Kat avoids a point-blank laser shot.
- In "How The Test Was Won" he starts running and sends Mr.Burtonburger in air.
- In "Suddenly Last Slammer" he runs quick enough to tear up the newspaper being held in Harleys's hand without being clearly noticed. As we see on camera recording.
Body fragmentationKat's Dance", he is able to separate his body parts and put them back together without injuring himself, while performing his dance moves.
GlidingCheeks of Evil," Kat was shown to have the ability to glide, like that of a flying squirrel. This has been seen in "Cheeks of Evil," "Keep On Rockin," "Over the Radar" and "9 to 5 to Oblivion."
Walking across the ceiling
Kat has the ability to Defy Gravity and Walk on the Ceiling; this is seen in a couple of episodes, usually, while Coop and Kat are alone (otherwise people would get suspicious that a cat is walking on the ceiling). It is unknown why Kat can walk on the ceiling; it is probably due to his razor-sharp claws or it could be he just has the ability to do this.
Walking on water
Can spit acid, in the form of a hairball, to burn through things. Examples:
- in "Class Act," he uses it to gain access to the vet at night
- in his experiments in "Planter's Warp"
- in "One Big, Happy Family" to gain access to the room the Burtonburgers are trapped into torture Coop while he is told to stay on the stool.
- In "Nip/Duck" he is shown to have a machine inside his throat, so his acid saliva may come from that device.
- others of his species have used the ability in "Kat to the Future Part Two
Ability to consume dangerous chemicals and poisonous materials.It's A Rocket Man" Kat consumes a dose of rocket fuel. It only causes him to breathe with fire, without further injuries. He probably possesses this ability because of mechanical parts inside him.
Altering life with blood
In "Flu The Coop" Kat gets infected with Coop's cold and starts to sneeze, and in "Hair Brains" we can see short retrospection of ill Kat sneezing at Dennis, which causes horns to appear on Dennis's head. It is possible that Kat's disease was the aftermath of mutation of Coop's cold.
Creating life with vomit
Being able to survive without food or water
According to "Tutankitty", which belongs to the same species that Kat does, Kat and his species are able to survive long years without a source of food or water. The same thing indicates Kat's lifespan, being extremely long, or even without a clear limit.
