Doodling is a really fun creative outlet! Plus, the more you doodle or draw, the better you become at it.

I add doodles to my monthly cover pages, my calendars, and my weekly spreads. I usually draw them in at the beginning of the week and as the week progresses, I color in a few doodles at a time.
It’s a great way for me to have a creative break in the middle of the day.
I also love cats! I had four cats growing up and they were all a bit crazy, fun, and entertaining!
In this article, I’m going to show you everything a feline friend would love to know about cat doodling.
There are lots of videos on how to draw a cat, cute cat doodle ideas, step-by-step videos, cat doodle examples for your bullet journal, and even cat doodle books you can buy.
