Extra Ordinary is a comic about Li, a Chinese girl who lives in New Zealand with her partner Jordan and her cat Shoelace.
That's pretty much it.
Every week we get treated to Li's quirky habits and interactions with her cat and boyfriend, usually involving cats in some way. It is pencil-drawn and very cute most of the time. Or always. It could be seen as a typical Slice of Life 4-panel comic, only it frequently borders on (or dives completely into) the surreal.
It can be read here.
It updates every Wednesday night, New Zealand time.
