A Cat Wheel[1] is a wheel with a cat paw icon that appears in Super Mario 3D World. These wheels are first found in World 1-3, Mount Beanpole, and can only be spun by Cat Mario via scratching it. This item is similar to the Tail Wheels seen in Super Mario 3D Land. When spun, a number of things may happen, such as a platform rising or a secret area opening.
