Big Book of Cats: Catricia

August 14, 2013

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.

I’ve officially embarrassed myself by over-hyping every other ridiculous name in this book, because ladies and gentlemen, I regretfully present to you the all-time worst/best… Catricia Katter. 


Catricia is–I can only assume–ready to go out raving with her friends. That’s a pretty easy explanation for the big, chunky platform heels, crop top, and choker necklace. She’d be pretty conservative at a rave, actually. Maybe it’s her first time.

After making fun of her name, I’ll just stop trying to justify Catricia’s life at this point. Do your thang, girl.

  • Or Catrica is stuck in a nineties rom-com. That totally looks like something they’d wear in clueless or She’s All That.

    I love her as I love all your Cat Girls.

      Hahaha, she could definitely be an extra in Clueless during that scene at the party that Tai falls in. Always a good look!

  • I actually love her name, ’tis rolls off the tongue! I love her outfit, too. Go, go dance, Catricia!

  • Catrica looks like a fun gal! I love her hair clip ^_^

    P.S. I’ve heard worse names. My parents have neighbours that have named their child Randy. And the family’s last name is Peacock … >_<

      Whoa. Randy Peacock is perhaps the most fabulous baby name I’ve ever heard!!!
