Artist Wants To Adopt A Cat So Bad, She Signs Up For A 100-Day Cat Meme Drawing Challenge

Drawing cats from memes every single day sounds like a dream come true. Well, animation student Emily Paquin aka Catwheezie is certainly living the life! She posts a drawing of a popular and beloved internet cat each day, and she doesn’t plan on stopping until she hits 100, and maybe even beyond!

“Most of the cats I draw are from popular cat images I find online through Instagram. I’ve always loved these types of funny cat pictures and remember being a kid, printing out similar ones, and gluing them on my school notebooks,” Em told Bored Panda about the project that she started on June 13.

Scroll down for the rest of our interview with Em and check out her fun feline illustrations below. Upvote the ones you liked best and let us know in the comments which one you enjoyed the most and why. Oh, and be sure to follow Em’s latest drawings on her Instagram!

Cats were the first thing that Em learned to draw and the artist told Bored Panda that she has loved art her entire life.

“Currently, I attend an art college and study animation and illustration,” she said about her studies. So it’s safe to say that we can continue to see great things from Em in the near future after she gets her degree.

Each illustration takes Catwheezie anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to finish. It all depends on the level of detail that she wants to bring out and how busy she is that day.#4

“Usually, I work on several of them at a time so I can make sure I’ll have a new cat to post everyday. A lot of planning goes into this project,” she shared her strategy for always having an emergency catto in her back pocket to post, just in case life gets in the way.

There’s no denying that drawing cats is a huge pleasure (and a great way to get on our meowsterious overlords’ good side). But why did Em start redrawing cat memes in the first place? Well, it turns out that she really, really wanted a kitten. Drawing cats was her way to communicate this desire to her family.#7

“The project started when I decided to draw a cat every day until I was able to adopt one myself. For a while, I imagined I might be drawing cats forever, doomed to never adopt one. Magically, things fell into place and on day 21, my family and I adopted Beanie, a two-month-old rescue kitten,” Em shared the fantastic news.

Even after getting the cat of her dreams, the illustrator continued with her project. Which we’re very happy with. As are Em’s fans.#10

“With many people invested in the journey, I continued to draw even after my quest to adopt a cat ended. I set my goal to 100 consecutive days! After that, who knows! If people aren’t sick of my cat art by then, I’d be glad to continue.”

Sick of cat art? Is that even a thing?! We can’t wait to see Catwheezie finish her 100-cat-meme project and we’re giddy with anticipation to find out what’s going to happen next.#13
