Meowmaid is a type of cat robot that works for Francis in Super Paper Mario that appears in Fort Francis. They are not enemies to Mario and the other heroes, but rather cats that just hang out in Fort Francis and talk. As their name suggests, Meowmaids are the maids of Francis. There also large version of Meowmaid called BigMeow.
They talk a lot about "Starship X-Naut" and about Francis' comic books. Meowmaids and SecuriMeows are the only cats that Francis has that do not attack Mario, Bowser, Princess Peach, or Luigi. All of the Meowmaids but one (who even then does not perform harmful actions) mistake the heroes for Francis, calling them "Master" and treating them as such. Each Meowmaid has different responsibilities, evidenced by their Tippi tattle descriptions.
