“Simultaneously hilarious, thoughtful, and bizarre.” ―Nathan W. Pyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Strange Planet

The first collection from comic artist Hannah Hillam poses the question: What if our cats were responsible for taking care of us for a change?

Following an unwitting human who finds herself in a world where humans' and cats' roles have reversed, Cat People examines the special and inscrutable relationship we have with our feline companions, revealing the delightful absurdities of both species along the way.

Only the keen eyes of cats could so sharply examine the most bizarre human behaviors we don't think twice about, including grooming, eating, sleeping, working, and competing with other humans for attention and territory. By flipping the script and casting humans in the role of pet, Hannah Hillam spins an unforgettable tail of the unique love and often baffling coexistence between cats and people.


  • “Simultaneously hilarious, thoughtful, and bizarre! Cat People is Hannah Hillam at her weirdest and best. Extremely re-readable and full of magnificent details.” 
    Nathan W. Pyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Strange Planet
  • “Zany and entirely different, Cat People is an exciting new work that shows off the depth of Hillam’s genius.” 
    Sarah Andersen, creator of Sarah’s Scribbles and author of Herding Cats
  • “Delightfully weird and funny, and it somehow made me a better cat owner.” 
    Zach Weinersmith, New York Times bestselling co-author of Soonish and A City on Mars
  • “Wickedly funny, visually inventive, and somehow both adorable and twisted in equal measure—I was crying laughing. A hilarious, heartfelt and subversive exploration of the pet/owner relationship!” 
    Tommy Siegel, author of Candy Hearts
  • “While I was expecting, and got, the darkly absurd, observational humor Hannah’s mastered for the internet, I was surprised to find it accompanying a touching story of feline anthropomorphism that left me wanting to be kinder to the animals in my life, and myself.” 
    Henry James Garrett, author of This Book Will Make You Kinder
  • Cat People is equal parts hilarious, adorable, and unhinged—okay, maybe a touch more unhinged. Hannah’s signature art style and visceral humor are coupled with the best subject matter: cats! This is a must-buy for all cat lovers out there, especially if your beloved animal was rescued from the outside . . . or through a vomitous portal.” 
    Andrew Marttila, The Cat Photographer
  • “Every cat lover will understand this book to their core. Hilarious and sweet all the way through.” 
    Tillie Walden, author of On a Sunbeam
  • “Such a fun read . . . with vivid imagination and remarkable attention to detail. One of the many reasons I love Hillam’s work is how far she’s willing to go to explore her ideas, even if it gets hilariously weird (and it usually does!).” 
    Cassandra Calin, author of I Left the House Today!
