Items You Will Need For This Project:

  • Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Sketch pads

Step 1

Begin by drawing a large circle on a plain piece of paper. This will be your little cat’s head. Now, you will need to add ears. Do this by drawing two little triangles right onto the head. Place the left ear toward the left side of the head and the same for the right ear.

Step 2

Draw to little circles for eyes. Position them in the top part of the face/ head. Use your pencil to shade on the little circles. Now draw triangle point downwards right in the center of the two eyes. Can you guess what this is? That’s right. The nose of the cat.

Step 3

Begin at the lower part of the nose you just drew and draw a line that extends halfway to the lower portion of the circle. At the lower part of the line draw a line that looks like the letter “U”. This is your cat’s mouth. Feel free to give your cat some personality by adding whiskers.

Step 4

Draw a complete outline around the cat’s body. The circle starts beneath the cat’s  head.

Step 5

Now add the details of your new furry friend. Give the cat some legs and some paws along body. Do this by making two little, egg shaped paws a few inches beneath the body. One paw will be located behind another paw. Repeat the same for the rear paws. Make lines that connect the paws on to the actual body. This will make your cat come alive. He almost has everything needed.

Step 6

Your cat has everything except for the most important part. The cat needs a tail. Draw a tail by making it a curved thin line. It can be in any direction you choose it to be.
