Clan Of The Cats is an adventure webcomic created by Jamie Robertson and edited by Alex Byrne and Miranda Prince, written since 1999.

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

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

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

And no, it has no relation to the Warrior Cats novels.

Provides examples of:

  • Schedule Slip: The series has had many hiatus' due to Jamie's illness (diabetes from the sound of it), rendering her unable to draw the comic.
  • Skunk Stripe: Chelsea acquires one after one of the early arcs. A little girl later compares her to Rogue.
