Is a kitten on your Christmas list? Would you like to learn how to draw a cute Christmas cat? This easy feline drawing guide can show you how.

At Christmas time, you may watch Christmas movies featuring cats, or funny Christmas cat videos on YouTube.

But did you know that cats have been associated with the Christmas season since at least the Middle Ages?

The story begins even farther back in history, with ancient goddesses such as Bastet in Egypt, Artemis in Greece, and Diana in Rome.

These goddesses shared many traits, including an association with cats.

Later, the traits of these goddesses were also applied to the Virgin Mary legend said that a cat kept baby Jesus warm while he was laid in a manger.

In gratitude, Mary marked the cat with the letter "M," giving the tabby cat its stripes.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Cute Christmas Cat

How to Draw a Great Looking Cute Christmas Cat for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1

1. Begin the cute Christmas cat outline by drawing the cat’s eyes. Use curved lines to sketch the half-circle shapes, noting the short line that extends beyond the corner of each eye. Enclose three small circles within each eye and shade between them, forming the pupil.

2. Begin outlining the cat’s head. Use overlapping curved lines to form the top of the head, the triangular ear, and the side of the face. Then, continue to add detail to the face. Draw the mushroom-shaped nose, and use curved lines to contour above the nose and to draw the mouth and chin.

3. Detail inside the ear using a zigzag line. Then, continue to the top of the head with a slanting line. Allow another line to meet it at a point. This outlines the bottom of the cat’s hat. Detail around the eyes with short lines, and draw dots on each side of the nose to indicate the whiskers.

Contour the material of the bow with curved lines. Then, extend a line from the head to form the cat’s back.
