A cartoon simple sleeping cat drawing is great for beginners. Drawing this cat teaches you about basic shapes and anatomy.

When you're done, you can color your cat laying down drawing with orange, gray, black or any color that you want.

Have you ever wanted to be a housecat? Cats are lazy animals that sleep for hours a day. They eat, stretch, lie in the sun and occasionally get pets from their guardians.

Once you've completed your cat laying down drawing, you can give your cartoon cat a friend by checking out another guide, like a cat in clothes.

You could also let your simple sleeping cat relax by themselves--after all, that's what cats do best. You can draw a chair or couch underneath your cartoon cat outline so they don't have to sleep on the floor.

Make sure you use a pencil sketch before outlining the full drawing. Don't assume that you have to get it right the first time.

Even the best artists start with a sketch and erase their mistakes before they complete the drawing or painting.
