The Kau (a homophone for cow) is a cow-like Neopet. They roam Neopia in herds looking for pastures to play in and graze. Kaus have cloven hooves and horns, but don't appear to have udders.
Kaus seem to have a penchant for magic - Kalandra and the Kau Fortune Teller both use crystal balls to predict the future, and Kauvara is Neopia's foremost potion maker. They also love to sing - although they only know one note, "Moo!".
While Kaus can eat many foods, if they eat any milk item, like Kau Kau Farm Milk, their hit points are fully restored. In the Neopets Trading Card Game, they are associated with the element of earth.
The Kau is currently available in the following colours:
The Kau was first introduced at the site's founding as the Macy Gray, based on the singer of the same name but armed with a ray gun and with her name hyphenated. It was replaced with the bovine-like Kau on 26 July 2000 "for legal reasons".
- As of July 2018, over 5 million of Kaus have been created, placing them 22nd in popularity out of 55 Neopets. They are also featured in 338 different items.
- The Kau's Battledome poses were redrawn on May 11, 2004.
- Famous Kaus: Kalora, Kauvara, Leera Heggle, Miss Stryke, Kalandra
- Games: Kau Korral, NeoQuest I, NeoQuest II
