''[[http://clanofthecats.com/ Clan Of The Cats]]'' is an adventure {{webcomic}} created by Jamie Robertson and edited by Alex Byrne and Miranda Prince, written since [[WebcomicsLongRunners 1999]].

The story begins with Chelsea Chattan [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent perfectly ordinary young woman]] and a practicing Wiccan living in [[BigApplesauce New York]] visiting her family in her howetown, [[CityOfAdventure Haven]] for her stepsister Cynthia's wedding. The stress of having to deal with her stepfather, the [[StrawmanPolitical overly conservative]] Ben Monroe, causes Chelsea to [[DrivenToSuicide jump out of a second story window]], whereupon she [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting suddenly transforms into a panther]], almost kills Ben, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking ruins her wedding]].

Turns out that Chelsea's suffering from a HereditaryCurse running in her father's family, making [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent werecats]] out of every female member. To balance this out, there's also a strain of {{magick}} running in her family. [[ArchivePanic These revelations were in the September 1999 comics]].

The comic is notable for having had several {{Crossover}}s with other webcomics, most notably having Raven from LCD as a recurring character.

[[IThoughtItMeant And no,]] it has no relation to the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' novels.

!!Provides examples of:

* BoringButPractical: Portal sorcerers. All they can do is portal things to places, [[http://clanofthecats.com/cotc/cotc-dracula-227/ right]]?
* CannotSpitItOut: Chelsea and Jubal. This line was written in 2014 and the comic started in 1999.

* {{Fanservice}}: Chelsea's clothing doesn't change along with her.
* FlatEarthAtheist: Paul, despite having witnessed a miracle, doesn't believe Chelsea is a werecat even after seeing her change. It's also revealed that he would have grown up to be an atheist if he hadn't witnessed the miracle. However, he's still religious in a dull sort of way.
* FurAgainstFang: The Council of Three's reason for existence is to [[DefiedTrope prevent fighting between vampires and werebeasts]].

* ImmuneToBullets: A pureblood can only be killed by another pureblood so of course bullets won't work.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: Of the HulkingOut variety.
* {{Jerkass}}: Lilith does things for the heck of it. She's unreasonable and has probably some of the worst mood swings you'll ever see.
%%**Mel.
* LikeABadassOutOfHell: Several occasions, like Draclua for instance. He did it while dualwielding.
