''[[https://catpersoncomic.tumblr.com/redirect Cat-Person]]'' is a webcomic of the PsychologicalThriller genre written and illustrated by P. Lo.

The story follows Neko, an agoraphobic 15-year old girl before and during the events of her father (Dad)'s depature due to a work trip. During his absence, [[GranolaGirl Eleanor]], his upbeat, blonde, and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers vegan]] girlfriend looks after Neko, who is less than pleased about the ordeal.

The comic is updated daily, with multiple panels uploaded sporadically.
