The Big Book of Cats: Sadie

December 12, 2012

The Big Book of Cats is a weekly illustration project. In 1998, I was 11 years old and decided to make a 200 page encyclopedia of anthropomorphic cat girls. I’ve made a vow to honor this horrific piece of literature and redraw every cat girl and post a new drawing along with the original for the internet’s amusement. Want to know more? Read my official introduction here and check out all the drawings so far here!

You’re welcome and I’m so so sorry.

18sadie01I don’t know what the heck is going on here, but Sadie is kinda scary, y’all. She’s clearly a sassy fashionista–workout spandex shorts with heels and socks? Inspired! Unfortunately it seems like the pressures of the fashion industry were a bit too much and poor Sadie hasn’t eaten in a while.


Sadie is totally friends with Kristen and they help each other take photos for their fashion blogs. ;) I’m really jealous of Sadie’s pale pink bob and Moorea Seal inspired necklace!

  • Sadie looks like she would be a total blast to party with! She would buy everyone shots, go crazy on the dancefloor, then go home bleary-eyed, sleep til 2 and write about all the fashion she saw at the club on her blog!

    Or maybe she just looks a little bit too much like someone I used to know from art school who would do this…

  • I find something so incredibly hilarious about a cat wearing cateye glasses. Gets me very time!
    Seriously though, its like Sadie knew how 2012 was going to look. This girl has got some serious spunk.

  • What an amazing drawing again! Love the colours of her outfit! :)

  • THIS IS AWESOME. Dude, her semi-sheer crop top is HOT. And the vertical striped bermudas are killing me. Also, I’M TALKING ABOUT A CARTOON CAT.

    Ugh, her top! i love her top!

  • Haha, I look forward to these so much! I love her hair bow and face.

  • I am loveing these posts. Sadie got hot. And her outfit looks heaps better now. :) Keep em coming. Can’t wait to see them all.

  • Oh my god awesome. I wanna be her friend :) Thank you for featuring a little of my bling as inspiration! She’s rockin’ it!
