A man and his cat lady live together…in a world where humans and cat people coexist. Trust me, it doesn’t sound as complicated in this episodic webcomic. The story’s consistent balance between humor and endearing character dynamics will likely get you thinking You’ve Gotta Be Kitten Me!

When a comet sweeps through the sky, the world’s cats turn into humanoid versions of themselves. Now they demand the same rights as their human counterparts. While some cats work and pay the rent, other cats choose to continue living as…well, cats.

Mino, a young cat lady who lives with her human partner Rupert, falls into the latter. Rupert takes her in after finding her hurt and unconscious in an alley. Like a typical cat, Mino spends her days lounging around in the apartment and exploring the neighborhood while Rupert works at his office job. She steals pizza from another cat, ruins Rupert’s furniture, and stares at birds from outside her window for three hours.

You’ve Gotta Be Kitten Me by Bea.R doesn’t take itself seriously. Cat people (and yes, that includes lions, tigers, and other members of the cat kingdom) live with humans, take it or leave it. No major conflict or conspiracy occurs in the background. The episodic structure and comical approaches to situations or incidents provide enough to entertain. Even after catching glimpses of this alternate world where humans and cat people can be companions or lovers, I’m able to familiarize myself with the world and characters. It’s like watching an episodic cartoon series with memorable characters and comical moments. And although the webcomic does dwell into Rupert’s mother disapproving of him living with a cat and Mino’s past with an abusive partner, it doesn’t stray away from its lighthearted and comedic tone.
