The Hilarious Reality Of Working With Cats All Cat Owners Understand (Comics)

Something that all cat owners have come to understand over the past year is that working from home when you have a cat is not easy. Your cat is annoyed with you for not leaving its house for so long, you have to deal with their endless annoyed meowing, your cat keeps invading all your zoom calls. The reality of working with cats is relatable to all cat owners, and it is absolutely hilarious. 

Of course, the talented Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, understands the situation just as much as any other cat owner, and in her latest comic, she has managed to capture that reality purrfectly. Except that she's showing us the cat's perspective on the whole thing. Spoiler: it's too funny. 

We have some amazing news from Ilana as well! A fresh collection of her hilarious and adorable comics are about to be released as a book in England with Soaring Penguin Press! Soon, you'll be able to buy a copy and enjoy reading more of her art. Having seen her comics before, you know just how amazing she is. So, if you want to find out more details about her book as well as show some love and support to a talented fellow cat lover, check out Ilana's kickstarter right here.

Jenny Jinya's Reveals Heartbreaking Comic About Hamsters

Jenny-Jinya is back and breaking our hearts once more! Perhaps all these comics break our hearts so much is because of the truth behind them. Jinya has addressed various pets who are often neglected. This time, it was time to look more closely at hamsters and their common fate... to be forgotten. 

Personally, I never had a hamster growing up, but I knew plenty of kids who did, and whenever we'd hang out, there was no interest in playing with the hamster. Looking back at it now, it breaks my heart. I truly hope none of them were lonely. Jinya has a gift for telling an impactful story and getting the message out there. 

If you have a pet, please give them some love after reading this comic. And if you don't have a pet, and thinking of getting one, please do some research.

Thank you, Jenny-Jinya, for constantly shedding light on stories untold.

Jenny Jinya's Newest Comic About Death Interacting With Life

There is no life without death and no death without life. 

We have so much love for Jenny Jinya's incredible comics. Yes, they are mostly heartbreaking and leave us sobbing, but it always leaves us with more awareness and an important message. If we don't have changes, we will be killing the precious wildlife around us. Jinya's comics are powerful, it's as simple as that. 

In Jinya's newest comic, Death is interacting once again with Life. Jinya revealed on Twitter that many users were asking for another exchange between the two and she delivered. When it comes to comics about life, it hits differently than the death series, and that feeling also comes with the colors of life, which leaves us less heartbroken than usual. Still heartbreaking, just less.

When A Cat's Food Bowl Is Empty, They Move Onto The Next Best Thing (Comic)

Mmm... food. We, humans, love food but do you know who loves food even more? Your pet(s). If your pet is anything like ours, you probably don't get a moment of peace from the moment you open the fridge to the moment you finish your last bite. And of course, if you leave your plate unattended (even if it's empty), your pet will be there faster than you can blink! They are truly sneaky animals

Let's be real though, we obviously can't feed our pets 24/7, they would never stop eating and their health would be in jeopardy. They don't know it but we don't feed them 24/7 because we love them and care about their health. Sometimes, we wish we could tell them that so they don't think we're absolute villains. 

We're pretty sure pets think about food 98% of their day, and the other remaining amount they're just dreaming of food.  In collaboration with Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we get a glimpse of what that moment is truly like.

Mirror Mirror: Cats Truly Are The Fairest of Them All (Comic)

When it comes to gorgeous animals, cats may hold the number one spot. Think about it, not only are all felines absolutely gorgeous, they are elegant and graceful (...most times). As a species, we are madly obsessed with them and literally cannot stop looking at them -- there's a reason why the most popular search on the web is all cat-related. They are truthfully quite perfect. Even cats who aren't "perfect" are also perfect

We believe if you were to look up the word "beautiful" in the dictionary, there should just be an image of a cat and nothing else. And not only do we happen to admire our favorite feline companions, but they obviously love themselves just as much as we love them. And why shouldn't they? Like we said -- they're perfect! 

In collaboration with Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we explore just how much our feline companions admire themselves above all others.

Cats Discuss Their Recent Meal (Comic)

Food. We take pictures of it and upload them for all to see. What for? It's not like we'll revisit those images. Or maybe some do. However, we as humans always share with one another what we had to eat that day, and what we plan to eat later that day. We simply can't help talking about food! Why? Because food is amazing. Cats understand, cats absolutely love to eat. We understand that because a majority of us humans also love to eat. But cats really love to eat. 

If cats could share their most recently consumed meal with one another, how would that look? What would they say? Thanks to Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we have the answer to these tantalizing questions below.
