The disadvantages of living on a tiny place and having to put the litter box in the bathroom.

Tuesday, August 30, 2011



You kind of have to hold them long enough until they start pretending to cuddle with you. I call it "force cuddling". It sometimes works.


*Side note: Will post dates and details of my book signing for CvsH soon. I have 2 going on in the Bay Area (one at Books Inc. in the East Bay and one at Book Passage at the Ferry Building in SF), and another signing in Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ. Email me at catvshuman @ gmail . com if you have any questions :)

Dumpling and Puppy have a weird relationship. I think they’re friends, especially since Dumpling likes to follow Puppy around.

Saturday, August 20, 2011



I use my iphone primarily for two things: answering emails and watching cat videos.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Saturday, August 13, 2011



I live close to a dog park, and we bring Puppy there.

I’d like to think I’m Type A…for the most part.

The 5-second rule does not apply in my household.

Hummingbirds are the biggest tease.

Do your cats make that strange sound when they see bugs, birds and other critters?

Side note: I’m on Google+. Feel free to add as I post updates on my comics there too.

Shelley likes faucet water. But she likes licking my skin as she drinks the faucet water much better.

She likes human flavoured water.

Out of any part of my body, my cats LOVE to knead on my face.

This is why I don’t like close up photos taken.

Edit: Here's some photos from the ICHC Field Day in Seattle :) I'm the girl in the blue dress.

Confession: I’m sometimes jealous of Dog + Human relationships.

Emphasis on sometimes.

Tuesday, July 5, 2011



I'm not the jealous type--except when it comes to this.

My sister stayed with me for a few weeks. All three cats slept on her bed instead of mine during those times. Those were cold, lonely nights.

Anyway...in case you aren't in my FB page or Twitter, I have a little shop now :) I have tees and prints. You can visit it here.

In addition, I'm going to be at I Can Has Cheezburger's event. Folks like The Oatmeal and Laurie from Itty Bitty Kitty Committee (Gah I love that blog! So many kittens!) are going to be there too. Stop by and say hello!

I have antsy feet, especially in the morning. The cats view my feet under the blanket as their play thing. It is painful.

Oh, I’ve been getting DMs and emails on toilet cuddling since I’ve posted that comic. I find it strangely comforting that I am not alone in this.

Saturday, June 25, 2011



Cats are extra affectionate in the bathroom. This is true.

Please tell me this happens to you.

Money, doing some intensive quality inspection

Cat vs Human is a year old this month! Yay! I wanted to thank everyone for reading my comics. I totally appreciate that! So I'm having a sticker party!

They never go until you give them what they want--whatever it may be.

Saturday, June 11, 2011



This doesn’t apply to Puppy though. He doesn’t know any tricks. He thinks he’s a cat. A 90lb cat.

Friday, June 3, 2011



If I leave the door open, she will sit on the toilet and watch me bathe.

Saturday, May 28, 2011



One day, I came home to find blood stains on my laptop keyboard, the floor, the desk and other parts of the house. This lead me to find Shelley in corner, by the litter box, batting a small mouse.

Sunday, May 22, 2011



It’s hard not to smile with a cat purring on your back.

Monday, May 16, 2011

Published by Andrews McMeel, Cat Versus Human will now be in book form! To be released in October 4, 2011, the first book will contain a collection of strips from our first year, as well as plenty of new ones you haven't seen yet! It will be 152 pages of kitties!!



You can find Cat vs Human for pre-order at the following fine establishments:

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Borders

Again, thank you so much for reading Cat vs Human. My blog is almost a year old, and I've thoroughly enjoyed drawing each comic. Along the way, I've made some awesome new friends. It's nice to know that there are many cat ladies and gents out there :)

P.S. Cat lady & gent Meetup in the SF Bay Area some time in the future? It could be fun. Just sayin'. I'll bring the cupcakes. Weather is SF is weird though...I'll have to figure something out. There's nothing solid. Just putting it out there in case anyone is interested.

The favourite part of the bed they like to sleep on is our heads.

Thursday, May 5, 2011



My cats like to hang out on the window sill. I live close to a busy street, and I have people tapping my window and playing with my kitties often enough :)

Sunday, May 1, 2011


Cat Ladies throughout history

I skipped quite a few moments obviously :) But I'll make a comic on those in the future.

*Little pic in the laptop is Maru.

My cats' secret stash is under the oven.

Oh, and sorry I've been scarce. I was sick for a week-ish. I'm somewhat back now. Anyway, happy weekend!

Saturday is kitty adoption day at the pet supplies store.

Sunday, April 10, 2011



I also mark my territory so people don't trespass on my property. I think it works.

Thursday, April 7, 2011



My puppy and kitty, exactly.

Oh, and thanks for the nice words on my previous comic. I've gotten a number of requests for lengthier ones. I spend, on average, about an hour doing my regular comics. The 9-pager took about 6 hours. Maybe less. I'll try to make more like that, time allowing.

Sunday, April 3, 2011



I haven't done a fantasy post in a while. I've done a Kitten Nightmares before (as seen here), but that was much much shorter. This has 9 pages.


edit:
FYI, The CvsH FB group was getting to be a bit big so I made an FB page. You can find it here.

Monday, March 28, 2011



I have friends. They just don't know I'm friends with them yet.

Saturday, March 26, 2011



This is the photo that inspired my comic. You've probably seen this already if you're in my FB.


Bracing myself.

It was one of the photo outtakes for the bio part of my upcoming book. I have hundreds of photos from that set, and this is probably one of the, um, better ones.

Money (grey) and Shelley (orange creamsicle) are actually okay with one another. They're not affectionate with one another and they are dominant types. But they both adore Dumpling (the big baby on my side bar).

Things that make cats crazy-eyed:

Boxes and crinkly paper
Critters and birds
Laser lights
Catnip
Night time
Printers

Every cat I've adopted has been obsessed with the printer.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Saturday, March 12, 2011



During the day, the cats are generally tame. They just lounge in the sun beams or the book shelves or on my printer.

At night, they are in crazy mode, and they wrestle and roll around and play in their litter box and so on.

I love them.

On another note, take care Japan and everyone in the Pacific.

We bathe the pets prior to bringing them to the pet hotel or if we have someone babysit them while we leave. That way, they're nice and fresh and not too stinky. But that's not always the case.

Anyway, I'm back from our vacation. Next post is on Friday :)

FYI, it’s not a bad thing.

Next week’s comic will be on Wednesday instead of Monday. I’ll also have a comic on Thursday or Friday as usual.

Monday, February 28, 2011



Tip for you: don’t put your hand anywhere near your cat if she’s in crazy mode

For those of you not familiar with that tunnel thing in my comic, it's this:



It's one of the few toys my cats like. It even has a bonus fuzzy thing hanging from the inside that cats can bat around. They will roll around in it, chase each other, and sleep in it. Boxes and tunnels, that's what cats like.

Friday, February 25, 2011



I relocated to San Francisco for a design job while Victor and the pets remained in Phoenix. We were apart for about a year prior to them moving with me. This is how we communicated every day. I would lay on the floor, on a 2-inch mattress as I would watch my cats through the computer. Fortunately, computers are cat magnets.

Monday, February 21, 2011



My immediate family and relatives are actually quite pet friendly. We’ve had cats, dogs, fish, bunnies, turtles, hamsters, chickens and ducks.

The chickens and ducks were very protective. If they saw someone approach me, they would attack that person’s foot by pecking them. And they’re very smart.

And yeah, cats, we’ve had lots and lots.

Friday, February 18, 2011



The other option would be, Victor and I would be at the edge while the pets take up 3/4 of the bed.

Happy weekend!

Monday, February 14, 2011



My Kitten sheds quite a bit. Well, all my cats and dog do.

Friday, February 11, 2011



My kitten just discovered the cursor arrow. He is obsessed.

Monday, February 7, 2011



They are most aggressive when I eat spaghetti, anything creamy or chips. They will form a circle around us and wait. Then Shelley, the most forward one, will attempt to dip her paw on to my plate when I am not looking, especially if I am eating spaghetti--her favourite. Ack.

Oh, and thanks so much for the super nice messages in regards to the upcoming book. You are all so sweet. And yes, CvsH will be updated as usual.
