Saga's Lying Cat is My Favorite

I like reading comics, and I'm a crazy cat lady so it's no surprise that I fell for Lying Cat. The hairless cat appears in Saga - if you haven't checked out Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga, I can't say enough good things about the inventive story, engaging characters, wonderful art, etc. - and though she doesn't seem to have the ability talk, she is able to state when someone around her is lying. Yeah, she's a handy companion to have by your side. Or a pain in the butt if you're trying to tell a fib for a good reason.

There is a dearth of official Lying Cat merchandise, but luckily fans are making up for it. Browsing the interwebs turned up a few neat pieces, and I wanted to share in case anyone else has strong feelings about Lying Cat.

First, the only official merchandise I know of:
This t-shirt isn't easy to track down, but it is available on eBay.

This Lying Cat custom Munny by Melissa is my absolute favorite, I love the design, the colors, and since Lying Cat is hairless, it's better than a plushie! You can order one of your very own from her shop.

I adore this lovely Lying Cart watercolor print featuring the regal kitty. Get it from Ashley Lanni!

Make your own Lying Cat toy with this crochet pattern from Gracie Fairfax. You can make a "Lying" word bubble out of card stock to go with it.

Get the gang from Saga in terrific 8-bit! Perler beads make for cute art or magnets. Buy these little guys from Gotham City Crafts.

Though this isn't something you can purchase, I wanted to share these Lying Cat donuts decorated by Frosting Fiend for obvious reasons:

Now I just want a Lying Cat by my side even more.

  1. Thanks for the share, Lying Cat is one of my favorite characters in the series, which might sound strange, but I'm sticking to it.
