Artist made 3 emotional comics about life with a cat and a dog, inspired by his personal experiences

A few years ago we shared two stories by Ademar Vieira about “The Cat” and “The Choice” that went viral. Since that time, the artist has created 3 more stories called “Match”, “This Place is Mine” and “Dog Home Office”, which, as you might have guessed, further explore the life of the main character, Sam, with a cat named Edgar and a dog named Oscar.

Ademar’s illustrations are like short films that, as the artist himself put it, ‘tell stories about life, charged with emotion, criticism and some twists and turns’. The artist has the power to touch the hearts of many people without using a single word and these new silent stories are a prime example.

In addition to the stories mentioned above, Bored Panda has also published other works by Ademar that deal with more serious topics related to our society. You can find them by clicking here, here and here.

“Sam is missing a relationship, has a dating app installed and has high hopes for finding his perfect match. But of course, for the relationship to work, the dog Oscar and the cat Edgar must also be accepted.”

To his surprise, Ademar’s first pet comic, “The Choice,” went around the world at the speed of light. Many people could relate to the story. So the artist decided to continue creating silent stories about Sam’s life with Oscar and Edgar.

As Ademar has explained, Oscar and Edgar’s characters were inspired by his dogs Zelda and Garoto, and a female cat, Gata-Fera.

The idea for “The Choice” came from Ademar’s personal experience. “During the quarantine, I realized that every time I was sad or anxious or had bad thoughts, my dogs would bring me back to the present and show me how it is possible to stay cheerful, focusing on little things like a game or a nap or the simple and sincere love of a dog. It moved me every time I thought about it because in their purity they were totally unaware of the pandemic and focused on the simplest things in life. When I got the idea to make that comic, it took me a while to draw it because I didn’t think it was one of the best ideas I had.”

Ademar told us he likes to think that we humans don’t own the planet. “We just share the planet with other species and I think the close contact with pets makes us realize that. I think those who love animals have a greater ability to understand many other issues, such as environmental problems.”

Unfortunately, the artist no longer lives with his pets. In 2021 he had to leave the house he shared with his then wife, and today she is the one who takes care of them. “I miss them so much because I’m in another country now (Argentina) and I only see them once a year.”

According to the artist, his pets helped him see life from their point of view. “They always live in the present moment, without worrying about the future and without holding onto grudges or things from the past. I think they can teach us a lot.”
