My Young Cat and My Old Dog is a collection of short, heartwarming, and episodic stories that describe the relationships between the old poodle Nang-nak, the cute kitten Soondae, and their loving owners. Some stories are autobiographical—telling the artist's own experience with his pets—while others are told from the pets' point of view in an interesting, fresh, and innocent take on storytelling.
My Kitty and Old Dog are short stories about pure love that transcends species. It's a heartwarming series that's ideal when you want an escape from the cynical part of the world.
It's been a while since I read this series, but I can remember the main character being an old family poodle called Nang-nak and a kitten named Soondae. Many of the chapters are told in their perspective and can be very tearjerking. And I mean it, I truly cried reading some chapters. Their point of view is very innocent, unprejudiced, raw with emotions, and loving. I personally feel amazed that this series managed to
keep itself interesting to read in marathon. Normally slice of life shorts like this can be a bore to read continuously, especially when their purpose is to refresh the readers' minds after a tiring day. My Kitty and Old Dog will in turn keep you wanting for more.
There are more characters as well, like other pets and their humans. Some have funny, silly pet stories to tell, and some have a slice of what keeping pets is like.
The art is storybook-like, clean, simple, borderless, with a warm tone. It's very fitting to the story.
The best part - it's a webcomic! It's free to read on LINE Webtoon (not sponsored! I just happened to read it there.)
Definitely worth your time. Here, have some tissues ready.
This was truly a roller coaster ride of emotions...!
I just knew that every time I'd read another chapter I'd need a box of tissues as well. From fun and cute times to depressing stories this manhwa earned a special spot in my heart. If I weren't a pet owner I don't think I could really relate to it but really, even if I weren't the art is captivating and leaves you to wanting more!
This is a slice of life so each episode has its own storyline. Nothing out of the ordinary so that's what makes it special. Everyday life that we, pet owners, often
get used to but it all comes back to how much we adore and love our pets. This is more like a pet diary, we can't know what our pets are thinking, but we do bet, and the writer made a masterpiece out of what she bets her pets were thinking every time something occurred!
Even if you don't have a pet, I recommend it at all times. Who knows maybe this will lead to you wanting one...and most importantly to truly loving it with every bit of your heart!
