Before learning how to draw a cat: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Killing a cat in ancient Egypt could be punished by death!
  • Usually, the heart of a cat will beat twice as fast as the one of a human.

Step 1

Welcome to this tutorial on how to draw a cartoon cat. These animals are very familiar to everyone! They have a very long and thin tail (1), small ears (2), a little pink nose (3) and four very agile legs (4) (5). Surprisingly, they can come in a great variety of colors: black, white, brown, orange and even blue! Cats are divided into 36 different species and you can find many more subspecies.

Step 2

Since the cat is a feline, these little creatures are moving very much like a lion or a tiger would. The head is made of a circle. The ears are made with triangles and the body with a rectangle. The back legs are very strong and the front ones are a little smaller. The tail is made with small rectangles. The eyes and the nose are made with small circles.

Step 3

Start your artwork by sketching a rectangle. Try to make it a little more narrower on top. Draw a line in the middle of your shape. Then, draw the eyes on top of your line. Draw the ears inside your rectangle. 

Continue your drawing by adding the legs. The ones on the front should be smaller. Add details like the eyes, the mouth and the whiskers. Here you go! One easy cat drawn in only a couple of minutes!

Step 4
