Artist Akiro Tea just shared 8 hilarious comic strips about the relationship between her dad Pietro and her pet cat Fritz. Parents are usually very skeptical when there’s a new furry member around. But that’s not exactly a problem, we’ll always have time to persuade them, right? Or maybe we don’t even have to, and that’s what happened in Akiro’s family.
“I think my cat is German, but I like to pretend that [Fritz] is Kazakh,” the Berlin-based artist said. “I got him from a Kazakh family. But they [actually] got him from the streets in Germany, where they live.” And even though Pietro and Fritz have such a lovely friendship, it’s Akiro’s mom who mostly takes care of the kitty.
These pieces are part of ‘Awkward Moments,’ an ongoing webcomic project that Akiro has been working on for a few years now. Scroll down to enjoy the comics and don’t forget to check out the artist’s other projects!
