As someone who doesn’t (yet) have a cat, I’ve been enjoying cat-themed webcomics over the past few months. I discovered pearls that made me smile and laugh. I haven’t found and read all of them on the internet yet, even those outside of WebToon and Tapas, but here are several of my favorite cat comics.
When I asked my cat-owning friends what it was like to have a cat, they said something like, “It’s both a blessing and a nuisance. Cats provide comfort, warmth and emotional support. And then there’s scratching, hairballs, vet bills, and litter box cleaning. Like all pets, they need care and attention. The eight episodic cat comics below show the highs and lows of having a feline member of the family, or just the shenanigans of a cat or two (or more).
Vote Mr. Cat by Sapphire Luna
A cat who, by chance, is mistaken for a man after putting on a mustache and a hat. From there, he becomes the leader of his neighborhood watch group and then becomes acting mayor of his commune. And then he starts running for federal office. politics in Vote Mr. Cat are absurd, making it a fun read.
And also check out the creator’s other comic, Artist Cat Adventures!
Saphie: Joho’s one-eyed cat
Based on the creator’s real-life cats, this webcomic shares their misadventures and shenanigans. Join cats Saphie, Simba, Sahn and Sol as they navigate life with their human family. The series includes fictional episodes where the cats are turned into humans or sneak into Jo’s luggage and travel to China.
Cat versus human by Yasmine Surovec
Surovec draws (pun intended) from his experiences with his cats. Short stories and fairy tale tales are also included, such as Rapunzel with cats and an adorable story about a robot and a kitten.
Matt Tarpley’s Cat’s Cafe
A cat decides to open a cafe. A penguin becomes a regular customer who orders the biggest cup of coffee. The cat engages a struggling rabbit. Most of the episodes deal with mental health issues and provide uplifting messages.
Milo & Molly by Chlumy (creator’s website unavailable)
A cozy comic on the daily life of cat couple Milo and Molly. The panels have no dialogue, but the characters’ expressions and the images themselves are enough to make an emotional impact. Reading this is like settling down with a hot cup of tea after a long day.
Doctor Cat, MD by Sarah Sobole
If you are sick or injured, Doctor Cat is in the house! Yeah, he makes mistakes and can be wrong sometimes, but give him some slack. After all, he’s a cat who happens to be a doctor.
Pixie and Brutus by Ben Hed (Pet Foolery)
Brutus, a veteran war dog, and Pixie, a kitten, become friends. Personally, I love reading about cats and dogs being friends, and this comic is a heartwarming experience. Between comedic and endearing moments, the comic features flashbacks to Brutus’ time in Iraq, providing context for the PTSD he faces in the present.
Cat and Cat Comics by Susie Yi (Soojimoo)
It starts with a cat… then another, then another, then a dog. What if your pets answered you? Cat and cat comics explores this, resulting in hilarious storylines. Most of the comics in this series have motivational messages about acceptance, dealing with bullies, and more.
