The Unadoptables – A Webcomic About Cats
Coming soon – a webcomic about the unadoptable kitties in Calico Coffee, a cat cafe with a mission.
The Internet needs more cats, amiright? My husband Brooks Peck and I think so.
Have you ever gone to a cat shelter and noticed that there’s always a few cats there that probably won’t get adopted? You know, the old ones, the sickly ones, or the just plain cranky and mean ones? We’re creating a webcomic about those cats called The Unadoptables.
This group of unadoptable kitties lives in Calico Coffee, a cat cafe/shelter full of well-clawed furniture, yummy pastries, strong tea and coffee, and cats. The cafe’s owner, Hank, is a giant of a man who is deeply in touch with his inner cat lady. He loves all cats, but especially the lifers.
We’re launching a crowdfunding campaign this June 6th, 2017. The funds we raise will help us create the first issue, “Catnapped!”, and publish it for free to the public (on Tumblr and Tapastic). We have two great artists (Beth Morrell & Autumn Haynes) working on the first six pages now, which will be publicly released on the day of the launch.
The pledge rewards include fun stuff like a PDF of “Catnapped!” once it’s finished, leggings covered in cats, and tweets from the cats themselves. Like from Jelly, our gross cat. You can read about him here, and watch his video here.
Cat and comic lovers will find the best of both worlds with The Unadoptables.
