Scratch Cat is a second grader who goes to MIT and loves scratching people who move him from the center or create their own Scratch Day event.

The Scratch Cat is the mascot of Scratch and the default sprite when opening a new Scratch project, though this can be changed. It is also the outline for the default icon of new Scratch accounts, replacing a previous version that showed a human silhouette. The Scratch Cat is a trademark of MIT and was drawn by Wing Ngan.
There are many varieties of the Scratch Cat's look. Some are below:
Use in Projects
Over 35,000 projects use the Scratch Cat in its most well-known form (the costume named 'cat1-a'), making it the second most used image in Scratch from Scratch 1.3 upwards. The high usage of the image is most probably because it is the default starting image for Scratch.
The image is often used as a narrator for a project (particularly tutorial projects), as it is such a well-known image. It is also frequently used as an interviewee in talk-show-style projects. As well as these, it also serves many other uses.
When a user attempts to view a project that has been disabled by the Scratch Team, the user will see an animation of the Scratch Cat explaining that the project is not suitable for all members of the Scratch Community and has thus been removed. However, this has been replaced with a simple "This project has been removed" page, with no animation at all. The animation of the Scratch cat can be downloaded here.
