In case you didn’t know, approximately 6.5 million pets enter U.S. animal shelters each year according to the research done by ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). By adopting a cat, versus purchasing one from a retail store or a breeder, you allow for an additional opening at an animal shelter for another pet to be adopted, thus saving 2 lives. Back in 2017, Lucas Turnbloom and his wife did exactly that as they decided to adopt a cat. Fast forward to now, they have a sweet but slightly crazy kitten as a part of their family.
The said cat has been of great inspiration to the owners as they observed the cat’s antics over the years and decided to turn these situations into funny mostly four-paneled comics. The ongoing webcomic series is titled ‘How To Cat’ as they describe the adventures of a black and white feline.

In case you didn’t know Lucas is actually on CNN News as well, in his previous post where he was talking about how his comics came to be he mentioned some other interesting things about himself.
“My name is Lucas Turnbloom and I am a cartoonist from Southern California. Most people know me from my Scholastic graphic novel series ‘Dream Jumper.’
In 2017, my wife and I rescued a sweet, yet rambunctious little cat. A few months later I started a webcomic loosely based on her adventures called, “How to Cat.”
“The comic was originally intended to be an inside joke for my wife and I, but she insisted that I put it on the internet and share it with the world. The strip seems to have found an audience on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter – which is incredible.
I’m so happy people have found joy in this silly little comic. I hope to continue it for years to come.”
When it comes to talking about his rescue cat, here’s what Turnbloom had to say, “A few years ago, I went through the process of cat adoption. She’s a very sweet kitty cat, but she’s also a little, well… crazy. Her name is Sweetie as funny as it sounds. Either way, I decided to turn the funny cats’ shenanigans into a webcomic called ‘How to Cat.’ and as you can see it went pretty well…I think.”
Taking all of that into consideration, we hope you will enjoy the newest comics by Lucas Turnbloom! We are pretty sure they will lift up your mood a little even if you aren’t a cat owner yourself.
