There’s been a meme for decades that female cartoonists only like to do cat cartoons. I wonder which male editor started this? :) Obviously, one who wasn’t buying cartoons from women, and wanted a fluffy excuse!
I know of one woman who specializes in cat cartoons: Stephanie Piro. I have her linked on the sidebar, not because of her cats, but because she’s an excellent cartoonist all-around.
The New Yorker has used the same cartoonists for decades (with only 4? 5? women cartoonists regularly), and they love cat cartoons. The most famous cat cartoonist is S. Gross, Sam Gross, who has put out cat book collections and calendar collections, for, well, decades.
(Secret fun fact: one calendar company just reissues the exact same cat calendar every year! Guess cat owners have a short memory.)
