How To Draw A Cat Steps

Step 1 Write cat on a plain paper

To start drawing a simple cat, take plain paper and a lead pencil and write the word "cat" on it. The word "cat" will lead your whole drawing so make sure you don't write the alphabet in joining writing. Use the same pattern as shown in the figure below. Note, if you want to make a neat drawing then sharpen your pencil before starting.

Step 2 Draw an oval shape for the head

The second step is to make the head. Now, using the top of the alphabet "t", draw a big oval shape for the head. The head will be having the nose, mouth, and eyes as well, so make sure to draw a wide oval shape that looks like a cat's head, or at least closer to that!

Step 3 Draw the nose of the cat

Now using the topmost edge of "t", draw the nose as shown in the figure below. Fill in the black color using the same pencil being used for drawing or you can also use colored pencils. Next, draw an inverted triangle shape for the nose, but don't be too precise about the corners of the triangle, as we don't need sharp pointy edges. Draw smooth round edges to make it look like a nose.

Step 4 Draw the mouth of the cat

Next comes the mouth of the cat. Now, right beneath the nose drawn before, make a mouth using two small semi-curved lines, each facing away from each other but joined from the inner corner along with the head of "t", as illustrated in the image below. Curved lines will express how happy a cat is.

Step 5 Draw the eyes

If you want to make a cute cat's face, you need to focus on the shape of your cat's eyes. In the center of the head right above the nose, draw two inverted (upside down) semi-curves. Keep some distance between the eyes as shown in the image. These curves will be adding expressions to the eyes, so make these curves bold to highlight the eyes. You can use a black marker too.

Step 6 Draw the ears

On the top of the head, draw two small triangles as the ears of the cat accordingly. Again, keep some distance between the ears to make them look somewhat realistic. Add two smaller triangles to the center of the big triangles to illustrate the inner ears of the cat, as shown below.

Step 7 Draw the moustache of the cat

The next step is to make the moustache. Draw three small lines on either side of the oval, over the cheeks to illustrate the moustache. Contrarily, the lines should be closer to each other and should be of the same size, which will give a fine look to the drawing.

Step 8 Make the legs of the cat

Using the bottom of "t", make two legs likewise on either side of "t". One leg will be on the left side and the other one will be on the right side, equally aligned together. Join the right side of the leg to the alphabet "a", and make the paws by adding two lines as shown below.
