How To Draw A Cat

Learn How to Draw a Cat in Five Easy Steps!

How to draw a cat step by step by catazoa

hello Today I am going to show you how to draw a cat.



First, you will need some supplies: 


  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Paper

Ready to draw? OK!


Draw an oval on the paper. This will become the body of the cat. The oval can be thin, fat, round or long, as long as it’s an oval!

Next step!


Add a head with pointy ears near the top of the oval. Add two oval shaped paws near the bottom. Erase the parts of the circle that intersect the head and front paw. Great Job!

Next step!


Draw the hind leg of your cat. Erase the part of the circle that intersects with the leg. For extra points, doodle a ball of yarn!

Almost Done!


Draw a tail on your cat that is around the same thickness as it’s paws and about as long as it’s body.

I drew my cat’s tail in a slightly relaxed position, but you can draw yours tall and straight, off to the side, or however you wish. Keep in mind that the cat’s tail reflects what mood the cat is in.

Last Step!


Ask yourself, How is this cat feeling today?

Draw the cat’s face and whiskers. Make sure to include an upside down triangle nose and two vertical pupils.


I hope this helped you learn how to draw a cat!
