Simon's Cat: The titular character. His antics, often in the quest for food, vex his owner Simon. He loves cat food but also enjoys birds, mice, and fish out of Simon's koi pond. A significant amount of the humour in the book comes from his efforts to capture birds, mice, and fish. Simon's cat has not been officially named, though writer Simon Tofield says that Simon's cat is based on his own cat, Hugh.[9]
Simon: The long-suffering owner of the cat.
Simon's sister's dog: A dog that first appears in the video "Fed Up," in which he is fed underneath the table by a family. The dog also appears in the book and loves to play fetch.
The Bird: A bird who appears in "Snow Business." It provokes Simon's cat into a snowball fight. The bird also appears in various other episodes as a squeak toy ("Santa Claws," "Hidden Treasure", "Cat Nap").
The Hedgehog: A hedgehog that lives in Simon's back garden. Simon's cat loves to annoy the hedgehog by impaling objects such as apples, leaves, and tennis balls onto its prickles. The hedgehog also has children. The hedgehog appeared exclusively in the book until the release of Cat Chat on 7 October 2010.
The Garden Gnome: A garden gnome similar to the one broken by Simon's cat in "Let Me In." The gnome is seen holding either a fishing rod or a net. Simon's cat often tries to get the gnome to help in his schemes to catch food. The cat considers the gnome a friend, apparently unaware that the gnome is an inanimate object.
The Bunny: A rabbit that lives in Simon's garden who can literally run circles around the cat.
The Kitten: In October, 2011, Simon brought home a new member of the family who, in spite of his tender age, appears to be considerably smarter than his adult counterpart.

The series is animated with the Adobe Flash software. The pictures are drawn using an A4-size Wacom Intuos 3 pen and tablet.[10]
Creator Simon Tofield revealed that his four cats—called Teddy, Hugh, Jess and Maisie—provide inspiration for the series, with Hugh being the primary inspiration.[10][11]
