Tentacle Kitty is a webcomic about a curious and friendly kitty
who happens to have tentacles. That may seem strange here on Earth, but on her
planet, it would be strange NOT to have tentacles.
The character Tentacle Kitty was designed in 2009. Over time the character grew in popularity, and in 2012 a plush version was produced. Now we travel the country with Tentacle Kitty plushes for adoption, and people LOVE her.
December 2009: It was a dark and stormy night near Portland,
Oregon. While sitting at a 24-hour diner waiting for his fiancé to get out of
work, John Merritt decided to make something really cute for her. He combined
his love of kitties with her love of tentacles, sprinkled some extra cute on
top, and the character known as "Tentacle Kitty" was created.
In 2014, John decided there was room for even more cute when he came up with the idea for Little Ones.
A Little One is simply a kitten from Tentacle Kitty's dimension, and can be any color imaginable.
With a passionate stroke of awesome, John designed the Little Ones, and set them up for crowd funding on Celery (an alternative crowd funding system) in under a week. They were successfully funded in THREE DAYS!
Ever since, we have been watching people fall into a cuteness-overload- coma when they see the Little Ones at our comic convention booths.
Interesting facts about Little Ones:
~Little Ones only have seven tentacles, because kitties from their dimension grow more tentacles as they get larger.
~A group of Little Ones is called a cuddle.
2015 we used Kickstarter to successfully fund four new colors of the Tentacle
Kitty Plush: Paradise Blue, Purple, Midnight, and Calico/MIA. Once we began to
bring them to comic conventions, people went gaga over the new colors, but the Calico
quickly became the most popular.
It was so popular that
it inspired ThinkGeek to work with us to make an “Orange Tabby” ThinkGeek
Exclusive Tentacle Kitty.
at every convention, people were asking if we had the Calico in a Little One
version, and if we had any other kitties in Earth colors.
This inspired us to not
only make the Calico in a Little One version, but also Grey Tabby, Tuxedo, and
Once we posted them online, our fans were super excited. Now we are back here on Kickstarter because we want to make enough Earth Color Little Ones for everyone!
discussion and feedback from fans we have decided to start with the Grey Tabby
Little One. This is by far the most asked about kitty. Once it is funded, we will have several unlockable colors to expand this from a one-off, into a full
series of Earth Color Little One plushes.
We have some unique items beside the plushes we want to offer for pledge packages that we think everyone will enjoy!
