My Pet Human: 04/11/17

My Pet Human by Yasmine Surovec

My Pet Human by Yasmine Surovec is the start of a middle grade graphic novel series by the author of Cat vs Human. The story is told from the point of view of a semi-feral cat who is trying to avoid animal control while doing his rounds in the neighborhood.

The cat's life changes when a new family moves into the long abandoned house. He decides to see if he can con a free meal out of them. He does the eyes. He does the kitten meow. He plays in a box. It works. Of course it does.

That's how the cat met and adopted Freckles (remember it is My Pet Human, not My Pet Cat. There's just the lingering trouble of convincing Freckle's mom and animal control that he should now live in this house.

It's an adorable book about a saucy tuxedo cat. Surovec does remarkably relatable cat caricatures with only a few lines and in this case, only black and white. Her drawings of people completely besotted with kitty cuteness are also adorable, but it's really her cats that keep drawing me back to her comics.

The sequel, My Pet Human Takes Center State came out earlier this year.

Five stars
