Just wanted to sneak in a few words ‘til I sign off for vaca.

I started this blog mostly because I was burnt out, to put it frankly. I design stuff for a living, and it can be pretty intense at times, as “fun” a job as it sounds. And often times I find being in the company of the people and pets I love most enjoyable. My cats have always been a source of entertainment and comfort for me. They are my best friends (because none of my people friends invite me for dinner anymore. Haha!). And I often find myself doodling them. You would think that having another thing to illustrate would be stressful. It is actually the opposite. I look forward to making each comic for this blog, and I wish I had more time to post one every day instead of one to two times a week.

What I found interesting is that I get to meet a LOT of you cat people. Sometimes I wonder if I’m going crazy because some people think that I’m too obsessed with my cats. There are so many of you who take a bit of time to share your stories with me through email, through comments and through FB. It’s makes me feel good to know that many of you love cats as much as I do. So yay! I’m not the only person whose cat sleeps on her face, or “walks” her cat in the yard or lets her cat drink from her cupped hands under a trickling faucet!

Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas! See you next week.

  1. Happy Holidays!! Thank you for your amazing comics!! <3

  2. Merry Christmas :D Hope the kitties enjoy the boxes and wrapping paper, this seems to be their source of enjoyment. Oh and of course the turkey!

  3. Have a wonderful holiday! Keep the great cartoons coming (no matter what the frequency!)

    Cat Chat

  4. You are so awesome!I feel the same way, it's so heart-wearming to read from fellow crazy cat people :)

  5. Well, I'll be honest and say your blog makes me feel better about being completely nuts about my kitties :)

  6. Have a purr-fectly wonderful Christmas!
    Best wishes from another household buried in cat fur ( wouldn't have it any other way! ).

  9. "Sometimes I wonder if I’m going crazy because some people think that I’m too obsessed with my cats"
    Hun, one can't be "too obsessed" with the cats. ever :)

    Happy Holidays to you and your humanz and catz ;)

  10. I am a cat person and my cats rule the house. My belief is "all kitties are good kitties" so rarely say no to them. Yes I am a crazy cat person that is why I enjoy your strips so much because they ring true. I recently adopted a feral stray that likes to sleep on my face I let him because I am afraid to move him ( I might get scratched) and he is a cat so he rules and will learn how to behave around humans given time.

  11. I'm not really a cat person but I really like your blog.

  12. I'm obsessed with my cats too. I don't know what me & my husband would talk about if they weren't around. ;)

    Love your little comics, they are hilarious and very true to life. Merry Christmas!

    Love Charlotte
    (and Vinyl & Weetzie...maow!)

    1. " I don't know what me & my husband would talk about if they weren't around"

      Probably about your ruined marriage.

  13. OH, you haven't even heard about "obsessed" until you've heard about this woman, born into a house "with cat" and currently handmaiden to 8...loving cats all my life, as have my family on both sides since time began! You're in wonderful company -- see all these great people who know the real secret of living well is to love cats -- and we all wish you a joyous holiday and a very purry Mew Year ;)

  14. Merry Christmas to you, Victor, Shelley, Money, Wonky Kitten, and Puppy!!!

  15. I just wanted to share that i love your blog. i check it daily and look forward to each new drawing. when i saw what u wrote about not being the only one whos cat sleeps on there face, it make me think of this picture: after my son was born i could sleep through anything besides his crying. my fiance took this picture of my cat sleeping on my head, and then giving herself a bath on my head, she was licking her behind about an inch from my eyeball :| scary but true story haha
    Jacki, Kyle, Robby
    Shebia Lee Anne and Maddi
    Yes, my cat has 2 middle names :) and my fiances cat only has one

  16. Happy Holidays =)

    Cats and pets in general are the best company one can ask for =)

  17. happy holidays to you as well. :)

    p.s. cat lovers ftw. <3

  18. i dont have a cat yet, but i think that all of the things you do are perfectly normal o__o i mean, its a cat!

  19. awww! we LOVE having someone else to share our love of the kitties with. I love reading your comics and I'm glad they give you a respite from work and an entry into the world of other crazy cat ladies (and gents). Karen (and kitties, Naughty Harry and Rerun)

  20. Holiday cheers to you and your feline friends! I, too, love my cats so much. They are 2 of my best friends & I can't imagine life without them. Thanks so much for your fantastic blog and comics! Sincerely, Laura, Tex and Harry :)

  21. I know the feeling. I'm obsessed with my cat too. And cats in general, but it's better that my insanely possessive cat doesn't know about that :) Merry Christmas!

  22. I'm actually a rat person. And yet almost despite myself, and despite the fact that I discovered your blog via a person who left on bad terms, I find your blog fascinating, and am thrilled each time I see an update. The humanity and humuor of the illustrator (you) shows with each new comic. May you one day receive millions from an anonymous donor.

  23. Like! LikeLikeLike. ;) And I second Yukirat's wishes for you... then we could have new comics every day!

  24. You are not crazy, OR too obsessed! I only have one cat because of apartment rules/boyfriend's rules, but if I had my way I would have just as many as you. I'm not quite sure my boyfriend knows what he's gotten himself into--someday I will be just like your comic, in bed with kitties laying all over me and my boyfriend grumbling next to me. :)

    my cat sleeps on my face, too, and has awful gas and tracks food and cat litter all over the apartment. I wouldn't have it any other way (and if I could have two of her, I would!)

  25. I have been a cat person as long as I can remember, but my husband is allergic, so no kitties for me. :( that's why i love your blog!
    thanks for sharing!

  26. i just had to quip in here; cat vs human is one of my FAVORITEST new blogs, and it actually took me a few days to realize you're the same yasmine over on print a day (which has been on my google reader for years now!) I knew I loved your style from somewhere! The funniest part is that I came across cvh totally randomly via a friend and not from your other blogs : D anyway, brilliant!!! these always make me laugh (out of "that happens to her too!?") ha ha!

  27. Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that your blog is one of my favourites. I check it everyday to see when you have a new one. You're comics are so awesome Yasmine, and they remind me so much of my life with my two cats Bill & Patrick. You're not alone being a crazy cat lady.

    Happy Holidays <3

  28. Started reading your comics and found this one. My Roscoe will sleep under the covers with his head on the pillow but will eat ice cream off of a spoon. He does many more goofy things but I lubs my rescue kitty.

  29. I have so much fun with your comics!! You are SO not the only one who loves that much cats! I also let my drink and eat from my food, and a lot of things more that just Kitten people understands..

    Grettings from Chile!

    Fran and Cappuccino (my siamese cat)

  30. I have lots of friends, a pretty intense social life and a job that I love... But my cats are my family, they're always my top concern and they're the ones who can lift my spirit up when things look nasty :p

  31. My cat do the same thing, but I still love him!!!!

  32. Merry Christmas from Argentina!!! "meow" from my cats... x

  33. AHHH! You NEED a very simple tutorial to drawing your cats! Please? For a late X-Mas present?


    I'm sooo sure it's because of this we're obsessed wif catz. No survival instinct.
