In this drawing lesson you can learn how to draw a cat. This tutorial is adapted for aspiring artists.
So let’s get started to learn how to draw a cat. Cats were first domesticated in Egypt, where they soon spread to Asia, Europe, and the rest of the world. Cats have powerful night vision, allowing them to see at light levels six times lower than what a human needs in order to see. We usually think of cats as pretty and funny, so cats are often cartoon characters.

How to Draw a Cat
- Draw the outline of the cat’s head and body.
Depict the head as a circle. To draw the torso of the cat, use a curved line.
- Add the cat’s eyes and ears.
The cat’s eyes are shaped like an almond. The ears look like triangles with curved lines.
- Draw the nose, mouth, and inside of the cat’s eyes.
Depict the iris inside the cat’s eyes. Also depict other details with curved lines.
- Draw the whiskers and the inside of the cat’s ears.
Add these details as shown in my example. Use light flowing lines.

Depict it at the bottom of the cat’s body, using curved lines.
- Add the cat’s hind legs.
Draw them at the bottom of the cat’s body, a little further than the front paws.

The cat’s tail should be wavy curved. Don’t forget to smoothly round the tip of the tail.
