How to draw a curled up cat

Many people have a cat at home. And some of them have more than one cat. These furry creatures become almost part of the family. And if the pet is not next to you, you start missing it.

If you have a cat, the child will want to learn how to draw this cute animal.

You can also interest your child by telling him or her the following facts:

  • Cats can produce about 100 different sounds. We just don’t always distinguish them.
  • In Ancient Egypt cats were honored so much that they were buried in the same way as people were.
  • The most famous cat in the world is the Cheshire cat from “Alice in Wonderland”.
