"Hey, Commander— look what the tooka-cat dragged in."
―An Imperial[src]

Tookas, also called tooka-cats, were a subspecies of feline cats. They were often kept as pets, but were also considered by many to be feral nuisances. When properly trained, they could be excellent hunters of pests.[13] One specific breed of tooka was the Loth-cat, native to the planet Lothal.[14] Tooka were known to enjoy milk.[7] Tooka were common in the underworld of Coruscant, where they hunted Nuna.

Biology and appearanceEdit

"I am not equipped or programed to complete that request."
"You're telling me that you can't pick up a little tooka poop?"
"That is what I am telling you. Also, it is not a little. It is a lot of tooka… waste material."
―K-2SO and Mayvlin Trillick[src]

Tookas can be a variety of colors, such as violets, greenish blues, yellows, fawns, dark yellow, brown, deep purple and blue-gray. They usually have a flat face with a slightly protruding muzzle. They have two slit nostrils that sit underneath a pair of beady gray or black eyes. They have very long mouths that stretch all the way across their face and can open wide to display long sharp fangs. They have a pair of very tall, pointy ears that are usually striped. Their neck is rather short, as are their legs, and their paws are very similar to a bird's talons. Their claws are adept at gripping their prey and climbing. Their tails are fat and bushy and usually striped, and their underbelly is usually a different color that the body. They are very similar to their subspecies Loth-cats. When angry, threatened or scared tookas can dilate their entire eyes and arch their backs like cats.

Behind the scenesEdit

"Cats in Star Wars, why not?"
Dave Filoni[src]

Tookas first appeared in the Star Wars franchise as "Adoris feline" in Otherspace, an adventure for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. Though this title is now part of Star Wars Legends, tooka were introduced into the Star Wars canon in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, first as a stuffed toy and later as the actual creature. They were named after Dave Filoni's deceased cat, Tuuk.[15] The loth-cat is a specific breed of tooka appearing in Star Wars Rebels.
