Cat Riddles

Here’s another set of animal riddles, with all of these ones having ‘cat’ as their answer.

The first few of them rhyme, while there’s also a one line and What Am I? riddle.

To use that last idea, read the first line to your kids and ask them to take a guess at what they think you’re describing.

If they’re wrong, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess that you’re describing a cat or they run out of clues.

I am a type of family pet
That is sometimes known as a feline
If I get into an accident
It’s OK because lives I have nine

As some may scratch you with their claws
Some of them always stay inside
While some like to roam outdoors

A baby is called a kitten
The number of lives it has
