This Comic About An Unwanted Corgi And A Lonely Kitten Becoming Friends Will Warm Your Heart
Bobblejot is an illustrator from Singapore who recently created a comic about the unusual friendship between an unwanted corgi and a lonely kitten that will warm your heart.
In an interview with Bored Panda, the artist said she loves cute animals, especially corgis and their short legs. “I decided to draw a corgi, and then a munchkin cat with short legs to be its friend,” said Bobblejot. “My husband really loves the name Victoria, so we decided to call the corgi Tori for short, while we chose a classic name to describe the cat.” She says the characters are loosely based on her and her husband as they draw inspiration from their own interactions with each other and the people around them.
“[Tori] is extremely clumsy and can be quite a derp, but she always means well. She’s constantly looking for acceptance and she’s happy that Samuel seems to accept her for who she is,” explained the artist. She describes Samuel as “reserved, prim and proper”. “He can be a bit snarky at times and a little full of himself, but he’s ultimately extremely overprotective of Tori,” said Bobblejot.
The artist says that even though the characters are based on her and her husband, she wants the readers to understand the characters will never develop romantic feelings for each other. “Some of our readers tend to ‘ship’ them, so we just want to highlight how they are really good friends,” added the artist.
