Conductor Whiskers is one of the “Rare Cats” in Neko Atsume. The way to attract one of the special cats to your yard/home is to place items that a specific cat likes. With some luck, that cat will (eventually) come visit.
Conductor Whiskers likes two different items. He will appear and use the Twisty Rail and the Cardboard Choo-Choo. Conductor Whiskers is a cat that is attracted to trains. Many of the other Neko Atsume cats will also use those two items.
The Twisty Rail item is described as: “The green ball appears and disappears from your cat’s view. They just can’t resist hitting it one more time.” If you place the Twisty Rail in your game, and a cat plays with it, you can watch them bat at the ball inside this toy. (In other words, this item includes some animation). You can buy the Twisty Rail from the in-game store for 20 gold fish.
Conductor Whiskers wears a hat that resembles one that a train conductor might wear. He also has a whistle. All of the other Neko Atsume cats that play with the Twisty Rail actually bat at the ball inside it. Conductor Whiskers seems to prefer to monitor the rail instead.

The other item that will attract Conductor Whiskers to your yard/home is the Cardboard Choo-choo. It is described as: “This choo-choo’s mournful steam whistle instills nostalgia in your cats. [*Actual steam boiler not included.] You can buy the Cardboard Choo-choo from the in-game store for 60 gold fish.
This is what the Cardboard Choo-choo looks like.
