Artist Helps Calm Anxious Minds With the Comforting Cat Comics

There comes a moment in life where all of us need a little reassurance that everything will be okay, and that’s okay to make mistakes sometimes. Hector Janse van Rensburg has started to deliver these endearing reminders in his comics featuring a grey cat, that calms anyone’s anxious mind.

The cat is based on his own cat, Ona, that passes away a couple of years ago. She was a very positive cat that would company the artist everywhere, therefore becoming the muse behind these illustrations.

“The comics are primarily about offering a new perspective on the negative mindsets that people find themselves in, and my cat was the perfect thing to articulate that new perspective,” says the artist.

Anyone will find the Sh*itty Watercolour Instagram account relatable. The artist has received a lot of messages from people about how his comics helped them, or how they’ve shared his comics with other people and it pushed them to open up about the things they struggle with.

“There are some gratuitous ‘cats are great’ comics thrown in the mix, but for the most part I try to make them such that the cat’s voice could be the voice of a friend, or your own internal voice… just nice comforting words from someone who will stick by you,” explains the artist.

20 Pictures of German Shepherds That Show You How Adorable and Loving They Are

I believe you all have heard of German Shepherds. They are the most steadfastly loyal companions, and consistently rank at the top of the most popular dog breeds, and it’s easy to see why. German shepherd dogs (GSD) are noble, diligent, loyal, and highly intelligent dogs. They are large in size and have very streamlined, athletic builds that make them both strong and agile.

Though they are excellent herding dogs, German shepherds are very well suited to work as service animals, such as guide dogs for the blind. They are excellent performing as working dogs, especially in police and military operations. They also make highly effective guard dogs. Of course, the German shepherd dog also makes a wonderful companion in the right home.

One of the most recognizable breeds today, German shepherds are celebrated for their impressive balance of power and grace. They surely mark a presence in your heart as well. To all of those who own a German shepherd, they will strongly agree to that fact.

Below we’ve made a list of their adorable pictures, and they will make you fall in love with this breed once more.
