Both of these manga focus on the life of a cat. While there are definitie differences - in both the age of the kitty and the length of the manga - if you enjoy manga about felines and their owners, then look no further than these.
Both of these are cute manga about cats. Although the themes are different, cat lovers would enjoy them both!

Chi's Sweet Home focuses on an adorable cat experiencing new situations from her perspective, while Stargazing Dog deals with more complicated matters from an adorable dog's angle.

There's a lot to like in either story, even for adults.
