Baldur’s Gate 3 hotfix 7 flooded with “shave the cat” messages

Baldur's Gate 3 hotfix 7 is here, but many players are instead asking Larian to still "shave the cat," after sassy feline His Majesty was given hair in patch 3.

Baldur's Gate 3 His Majesty: a cat hissing

Baldur’s Gate 3 hotfix 7 is here, and while it focuses on minor improvements to prevent crashes and help with save game issues, players are still asking Larian to “shave the cat” since His Majesty was given hair in patch 3. Whether or not Larian will turn the hissing cat back into a Sphynx remains to be seen.

The newest Baldur’s Gate 3 hotfix focuses on the crashes and save game issues we’ve listed below, but players are continuing to ask for one small change to Larian’s newest RPG game, and I think it’s one we can all get behind. Larian, you need to shave the cat.

With Baldur’s Gate 3 patch 3 Larian made some great additions to the game, like the ability to finally change your Tav’s appearance in camp, but one visual change didn’t go over so well. Everyone’s favorite hissing cat, His Majesty, was given hair.

The previous patch says it has “Updated the visuals of His Majesty, who previously looked like Steelclaw. His Majesty’s appearance now befits his name and nature.” His Majesty was originally a Sphynx cat (one with no hair).

There’s no mention of His Majesty in Baldur’s Gate 3 hotfix 7, but the comments are already filling up with requests for Larian to “shave the cat,” and a cursory look at any online communities shows that players have been asking since patch 3 dropped.

While His Majesty is still covered in fur, hotfix 7 does make some changes that help improve crashing and save game issues, which you can read below courtesy of Larian.

  • Fixed a crash that would occur when listening in on some dialogues during a multiplayer session.
  • Fixed crashes caused by corrupted item stacks that could occur when unloading a level or moving to a new region.
  • Fixed a savegame issue when loading into a new region while Withers’ Wardrobe was still loaded in an old region.
  • Fixed a crash that would occur when loading savegames with potentially invalid items in the inventory.
  • Fixed a savegame issue relating to traps.
