Step 10: Draw the Cat’s Back Leg

Draw the cat’s back leg as shown below. The cat’s thigh is going to be rounder in shape and the leg is going to be thinner.

Step 11: Draw the Other Back Leg

Next, we are going to draw the other back leg of your cat. Since this other leg is behind the cat and on the other side, I am not drawing the thigh, just the thin part of the leg extending forward.
