Stray Mods – How to Customize Your Cat

Stray Mods featured

The Stray mods are out of control. Players are adding their own cats into the game by modding the titular stray cat into their very own personalized feline. If you’ve always been curious about personalizing your cat protagonist in the game, then Stray mods will be the best option to turn to.

How To Use Stray Mods?

Go to Nexus Mods and download any of the Stray mods that you want to. Each mod has an instruction for how to use it. Once you choose a mod, you’ll have to download the file and follow the respective instructions provided to apply it to the game.

Since the debut of Stray, players have been modding their own cats into the game. Particularly creative modders have added works from other franchises, such as Garfield, as the protagonist of the mysterious robot filled world that we explore. Every day new mods are being added to Stray so you’ll have no shortage of mods to customize your game experience.

At the time of this writing, it seems that Vortex has not added official support for Stray as of yet. This means that you’ll have to manually install the mods you download yourself. Most Stray mods really just ask you to move the files into a specific fold of the game’s directory so they aren’t hassle at all.

You don’t need to worry about any viruses or malware in Nexus Mods as they always tell you about mods they’ve scanned for safety and security.

Can You Mod Stray on PS5?

No, you cannot mod Stray on PS5. Or any other consoles for that matter. Xbox Series X|S also cannot mod Stray and most games. PC is the only platform where you can mod Stray.
