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.

When I was flipping through the book for my next cat girl, I was struck by the fact that Lolly is pretty much just Zooey Deschanel, right? That dress is probably cotton and she will ask Siri for directions to the nearest record store to ride her bike to! And we’ll all swoon with charm and secret envy. Just a little bit.
Also, I remember going through phases of obsession with certain names. I would name all my Barbies the name for a bit, make up an original character or two, etc. These names were all pretty strippery sounding. I specifically remember infatuation with Skye, Desiree, and Lolly. I definitely had multiple little stories and comics written about different girls named Lolly.
