In these times, our pets have become even more invaluable than they ever were. They stick with us throughout the day and are first to respond if we have a bad one. That's why pets are a blessing—it doesn't matter if it's a cat, or a dog, or a hamster.
This is why even if you're not a cat person, you still can relate to these comics and illustrations. Why? Because they're just about having a companion that you love to hang out with day-to-day, no matter what. And now, it has become even more so.
Hungarian digital artist Rita Vigovszky makes a nice blend of illustrations and comics about her regular life and experiences with her cat, Miyu. Like in reality, most of the time, she's sleeping somewhere near Rita or just doing silly little cat things. "Cats are great inspiration for comics and pictures, as they always do something funny or cute. Even if they do nothing, they still make the pictures better with their cuteness," said the artist to Bored Panda.
Rita has been drawing ever since she was a little girl. She always wanted to become an illustrator, so she became a graphic designer in 2012. She said that she "loved it very much", yet she missed "drawing her own things," so this year she focused more on her own illustrations. You can see the sweet fruits of her labor below. In a way, her comics are very cat-like: they're chillin', killin', nappin', feeling happy, and ready for whatever that happens. I guess living day-to-day with a cat teaches us about how to live the day like one. And it's a good lesson.
The artist also opened up about her own quarantine situation: "I am very lucky because I've already been working from home, so the quarantine didn't interfere with my career, but I'd really like to spend more time outside, meet my friends, and see concerts. Until then, art and my cat are still here for me." The art and the cats are here for us, too, thanks to her illustrations.
