It's been a bit over 8 months since I started Cat Vs Human. What started out as a doodle of my cats turned into a blog, which, I can now say, will turn into a book! I am SO thrilled to announce that Andrews McMeel will be publishing Cat Versus Human, which will be released in Fall 2011!



This was me when I found out.

Do you like my Unisaur? It is a cross between a unicorn and a saur.

I'll post more updates as things develop!

Gosh, I also want to say thank you to everyone who has been so supportive. It's always nice to "meet" fellow cat ladies and gents. You're awesome!

  4. Good for you! I love your webcomics, it lets me indulge the cat lady side of me while I'm living in an apartment that doesn't allow animals. And the unisaur is the best thing ever I've seen today.

  14. I'm so happy! I love supporting new born blogs, and see them get bigger and bigger with time! And yours is one of the successful stories :)

    This actually reminded me of one blog that is sort of popular in my country, and has even an English version. The creator is also developing a book! The name in english is once upon a saturday, in case you're curious... (not about kittehs though)

    But anyway, congratulations, you totally earned this contract with the publisher, and I hope to have it soon in my hands, via eBay or something similar (no frontier is gonna stop me from having the book).

    Greetings from Brazil!

  50. Yasmin, that is so cool! I am really happy for you, congratulations. You deserve it, you put a smile on my face (and so many other faces) every time you post another one of your wonderful little artworks. I swear you must have looked into the life in our house, because every single thing you publish could have happened or did happen in our household at some point.
    Life with cats is good, but it's even better when you illustrate it!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, way to go, Yasmine! Andrews-McMeel puts out some amazing books - you undoubtedly know the "CATS' HOUSE" books by Bob Walker and Frances Mooney and their world-famous clowder?

    ConCATulations -- it couldn't happen to a nicer blogger -- or sweeter, funnier cats ;) Can't wait to see the book and hope it's the first in a long, successful series.
