Start with a brown pen, and draw two triangles, connected by a curved line in the middle, to create the top of the head of your alien cat.

In the center of the two triangles, draw two long, triangular shapes, and fill these in with the brown pen.

Next, extend the lines down from both sides, bringing them down at a slight diagonal, to meet at the bottom with a gentle curve – this is the outline of the face.


4.

Add an inverted “V” shape, slightly curved, just above the bottom of the face, and two “comma” shapes just above these, to make the mouth and nose.

Next, add two “semicircle” shapes just above the nose, with one on either side.


6.

Bring the two halves of the semicircles together with another curve at the top to create large, almond-shaped eyes. Add a crescent shape to the center of the eyes, and leave this white while you fill in the rest of the space with the brown.

Now for the body! On the right hand side, bring a curved line down from the bottom of the face, to almost off the bottom of the page. On the left hand side, add a slight curve, intersected with short, slightly curved lines.

Now, add several small toes to the bottom line on the right hand side, right at the bottom of the page.


10.

Bring a line upwards from the toes, curving slightly, before heading back down to create the other leg.


11.

Now, draw another line heading up from the left hand toes, ending roughly level with the top of the first. Fill in the space between the legs with the brown pen.

Next, bring a curved line from the bottom of the neck on the left hand side, and bring this out to the left, across and down to meet another foot at the back of the body.


13.

Now add a long, curving tail extending out from the right hand side of the body, and fill this in with the brown.


15.

Switch to a yellow pen, and carefully outline the right hand side of the cat, as well as the tips of the ears.


16.

Use a dark green pen to outline the back of the hind leg and the front of this joint. Then add a green to the mouth, the “V” above the eyes, the inside of the ear, the front legs, and the top of the chest.


17.

Use a light green pen to add another, slightly thicker layer to the regions you have just filled in.


18.

Use the light green pen to fill in the rest of the face.


Voila! You are the proud owner of a curious alien cat; why not create another creature and play with other shapes and colors?

It is no secret that pet cats are a common feature of many families, and they are the most popular choice of pet in the USA, with over 88 million felines counted as part of the family!

Despite something of a reputation for a fearsome, aloof nature, most cats are actually pretty laid back, and will spend around 70% of their lives asleep – albeit in some pretty crazy locations and positions, including on top of radiators, in cupboards, and even on a shelf they have taken a particular fancy to.

We have all heard the saying that cats have nine lives, and this is pretty lucky for most felines, as they have a tendency to jump, leap and get themselves into all kinds of trouble – there are stories of cats who have survived falls from over 32 stories, or an incredible 320 meters – onto solid concrete, and who have walked away without a scratch.

In the event of injury, however, cats have an incredible superpower – they can actually heal themselves by purring. As a rule, the domestic cat has a purr frequency of between 25 and 150 Hertz – this is the exact frequency at which muscles and bones in the body are most easily able to repair and heal themselves, and this gives cats the ability to sooth and repair their wounds and aches, simply with the power of a purr – pretty impressive!

Next time your kitty makes you feel better with a snuggle or head scratch, just think – they may be physically trying to heal you.
