Residents of Yuragi-sou
Long ago, Shiratama chose Yaya as his host and the two became inseparable since. She often calls him Nekogami-sama. This bond is the reason, Yaya is able to become friends with many other Cat Gods. Yaya is very dependent of Shiratama as she admits she's not able to do much without his presence.
When Kogarashi first moved into the Yuragi-sou, the first thing Yaya does is lick his cheek after being cut by Sagiri's kunai. Yaya wasn't originally very fond of Kogarashi due to their initial encounters which include being accidentally peeped on and being touched in her cat form which she disliked. However, she eventually warms up to him after being fed grilled fish that he cooked for her and the other Yuragi residents. She became affectionate towards Kogarashi that some described as being tamed with food. She's among the Yuragi female residents who holds no romantic interest towards Kogarashi, but still is quite attached to him.
Examples of this closeness includes her being among the Yuragi residents rescuing Kogarashi when he was kidnapped by Karura, nearly losing her favorite fish to prevent Yuuna's and Kogarashi's body that were swapped with cats from shamelessly interacting, and healing Kogarashi when he was knocked out by Ouga.
Despite their few interactions, Yaya and Yuuna seems to be quite close to each other as fellow Yuragi inmates. Their bond is deep enough that she is willing to help the others protect Yuuna from Ouga.
While the exact relationship between the two is unknown, Yaya appears to respect and care for the manager like the rest of the Yuragi residents.
One of the kunoichi of the Demon Slaying Ninja Army of the Ameno Clan and also her fellow room mate of the Yuragi Inn.
The two are fellow Yuragi residents who don't mind each other's company.
When Koyuzu moves to the Yuragi Inn, the two became good friends. The two share an interest in a Magical Girl anime that they, on occasion, play Magical Girl where Yaya acts as Koyuzu's familiar.
While there hasn't been much interaction between the two after Hibari moves to the Yuragi Inn, Hibari does find Yaya cute.
When Chisaki visits the Yuragi Inn, Yaya becomes instantly attached to her after eating one of her Italian dishes which was a fish.
A friend of Yaya whom she knew since middle school.
The two first meet as fellow first years in Yukemuri Highschool. While everyone was originally scared of Shion, Yaya wasn't bothered by her and becomes Shion's first high school friend after she tries to save a cat. They would then spend more time together such as walking home together from school and doing activities with Yumesaki Harumu.
A Cat God who originally disliked Yaya for humiliating him in the Fukuneko Festival by toying him with her foxtail dancing. He returns for a rematch and originally had the upper hand against Yaya until Kogarashi interfered, allowing Yaya to beat him again. Although defeated, Yaya called out to him to come again much to his hidden gratitude and annoyance. When Yaya summoned a bunch of Cat Gods to defeat Suzutsuki and Karura's bodyguards, Aramaki was among the Cat Gods that answered her call showing that he does see Yaya as a friend.
The late 6th Yatahagane who was Kogarashi's master and also a ghost after her death prior to her battle against Garandou 100 years ago. In spite knowing Yuuna's alleged identity as a Garandou, Yaya and the Ameno Cousins attacks Ouga in order to protect their friend, but the Yatahagane's power is too much for all three of them to handle.
