Cats are fickle creatures, one moment they’re heading towards you for a fuss, the next they’ve spotted a spider, leaving you in the lurch. 

Illustrator Yasmin Surovec, from Phoenix, USA, has three cats and a dog. One day she decided to chronicle the daily musings of being a cat owner.

“I’ve always loved cats and I’ve always had them since I was a child,” she tells The Huffington Post UK. “I’ve been working as an illustrator for quite a while, so making comics about everyday living with cats just made sense.” 

Whether you’re trying to give your cat affection and they just don’t want to know, or you need to get things done and they’re all over you, here are eight illustrations that are all too familiar for cat owners.
