Color Your Scared Cat Drawing
Use a black marker or pen to outline your cartoon scared cat. Add a background, like lightning or a tunnel, to make your scared cat drawing even scarier.
To color the outline, use light gray with darker gray for the stripes. Add pale gray for the ears and face. Use pink for the mouth, then keep the eyes white to make your cartoon cat look extra scared.
