Just last week, we thought we were being ridiculous by comparing cats and their super soft fur to fabric with such as Muslin and faux fur. Today, however, we think that our obsession with cats has taken a new turn. While learning how to draw our favorite manga faces with their typical large eyes, we were triggered by an idea for our next masterpiece (Cat with big eyes).
Anime has been a favorite of people who have artistically inclined minds – and by that, we genuinely and generally, mean to complement our feline-loving public. Apparently, manga and cats do have a characteristic resemblance – their large eyes. While dilated pupils might be a way for us to acknowledge the cuteness of cats, it is another way for their system to tell us that they might be getting hypertensive. Sticking on the cutesy part, let us acknowledge 10 Breeds Of Cat with Big Eyes (that have managed to put manga faces to shame) with their hedonistic and expressionistic features.
