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.

Millie is an interesting exercise in my idea of diversity. She’s a another kid–like Susie–according to her bio page, Millie is only 6 years old and her last name is “Poodle”. So I guess I just really wanted to draw a poodle girl, so I basically did, but gave her cat ears instead? Who knows. Maybe she’s bi-species?
Millie’s re-draw is my favorite in a long time! I feel like I’m finally making progress with combining thick lines and more implied lines… if that makes sense! I usually would draw one or the other so I’ve been making a conscious choice lately to try and combine the styles into something a little more interesting. This one is also a fun experiment with colors! I really need to improve my color choices in my work in general.
Since new Mille is a little less blatantly poodle-looking, I gave her a cute little poodle doll. :) He kind of looks like a sheep, but he’s cute and I want one.
