Mews and Nips: Soothing Cat Comics Deliver Relief During Anxious Times

We can all use a little reassurance right about now that everything is going to be okay. Artist Hector Janse van Rensburg provides illustrations in which the artist is comforted by a small gray cat who offers soothing feline purrs of wisdom to soothe anxious minds. For more about van Rensburg’s lovely drawings, visit or follow him on Instagram.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, I shared my annual Thanksgiving ABC’s, on Monday, I told you about Jackson Galaxy’s Cat Camp Home for the Holidays, on Tuesday, we reviewed Dezi & Roo’s Wiggly Wand, on Wednesday, we featured pet portrait artist Alison Mayes and a very special drawing she did for us, on Thursday, we celebrated Thanksgiving, and on Friday, we shared Black Friday deals from some of our favorite companies.

Today’s video of a kitty watching an instructional baking video cracked me up. Who’s teaching who? Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

    Awake in the middle of the night and I took a look at the “swatercolour” art. It is just so on point and comforting. I love the images and perspectives:) The video gave me a needed giggle.
    Thanks for sharing these.
