As you can see from the preview, this tutorial on how to draw a cat for kids will be really simple. I tried to achieve this simplicity by getting rid of the extra details and making the cat as minimalistic as possible.

Such minimalism in the drawing will help the child to focus on the most important thing, that is, on large shapes, such as the head, paws, tail, etc.

Further, if the child wants to make his drawing of a cat more detailed and lively, he can add additional elements such as fur texture, shadows, and so on. But for now, as I said, we will focus on the most important details and try to depict this cute animal using this instruction.
