The Punderful World Of Cats is a whimsical series of pun-filled kitty illustrations by Katie Ruby Miller .  They are so magical and yet relatable, I can envision them on t-shirts and other merch for cat lovers of any age from 2 to 92. It’s always a thrill to discover and then share something as enchanting as this art work. Tell us in a comment which ones you like best.

The Punderful World of Cats

Katie Ruby, a U.K. based artist/designer gathers inspurration from pop culture, film, TV, books, music and artists and guaranteed to brings smiles.  For those of us immersed in catspeak where perfect becomes purrfect, the cat puns are delightfully purrfect. When I discovered Katie’s brilliant work months ago, I had to reach out and we’ve developed a simpatico email friendship. I encourage supporting indie artists. The most talented artists are often shy and deserve nurturing especially since our culture thrives on the latest viral video and in your face marketing, leaving the less pushy creatives in the dust.

Only a true cat lover could create a fantasy kitty punderland as Katie. She lived for a time with two cats on a narrow boat (a river barge houseboat) and began the funny punny cat series The Punderful World of Cats as a break from her day job at a greeting card company.

Now a freelance illustrator at age 29, Katie is working on new projects including a Cativity book. It’s part coloring book, part kitty activity book and 100% amazing. It’s available in a very limited edition at Katies beyond adorable website. So, poke around to see more punderful work or order the fresh off the press  Cativity Book My copy is winging its way across the pond and if you want it, tell me and I just might send it to you.  If you happen to need some graphic design work for your blog or business, she’s your gal.  See a few of her non-cat illustrations of her portfolio

All the cat illustrations regardless of gender are based on a character named Furgus, a gender bender with a large “M” meow head. If he were an actor, he’d be a shoe-in for a Bafta or Oscar. Let’s see some of his starring roles, shall we?

For those who enjoy cats with a literary bent. Her latest one is William Shakespurr as Macbeth but the ink is still wet. You can see it on  Instagram @KatieRubyIllustration Ditto her very first gif version based on the Powerpuff Girls.

From legendary artists to legends, there is a pun for all.

  16. I LOVE her art. I have been following her for a while.
    Nellie has not been visiting me, though I have dreamed about her a few times. I expect she is gathering her strength. She was quite spent.
    Strangely, Licorice (my heart cat who passed 7 years ago), has been with me through it all.
    Love Barb

    1. I thought you’d love Katie’s work 🙂
      Re: Nellie. It may take time. Merlin didn’t visit for a few weeks. It makes perfect sense about Licorice. Stay open, creatively and energetically xoxo

  17. Love these! I’ve liked her FB page already, and anyone who puts cats in spaceships is a person whom I LIKE!

    1. Awesome! Agreed about cats in spaceships. You’d love the Space Cat books by Ruthven Todd which where written in the ’50s.

  18. My human has always been partial to Audrey Hepburn’s quote.

    1. I thought you’d love Katie’s work 🙂
      Re: Nellie. It may take time. Merlin didn’t visit for a few weeks. It makes perfect sense about Licorice. Stay open, creatively and energetically xoxo
