About Catillest: A Furry Tail Tale…

Catillest makes awesome things for animal lovers.
The Illustrating Cat

Cat Neligan is the fur-brained ginger also known as Catillest. Like an actual cat, I do love canned sardines and fresh cream. Unlike a cat, my opposable thumbs allow me to work as a freelance designer by day, and illustrator/shop owner by night.

Standing out from the pack…

Catillest Pet Portraits are unique – they go beyond just a reproduction of a photo of your pet. You get a cartoonified version – with bolder lines, brighter colours, and the option to really tell a story!Framed Pet Portrait

If you send me a photo of your pet, plus any stories about them, any quirks or characteristics – then I can integrate them all into a totally one-of-a-kind pet portrait.

Supporting Animal Welfare Charities

I also want to help the source of my inspiration, so I create designs for animal welfare charities with 50% of the profits going straight to helping animals in need.


Animal Charitees




The AOI has been a super valuable resource in my illustration career, and I would recommend it to anyone trying to do the same.

Supported by the Princes Trust
