Yes, there are cats in Star Wars. After all, cats are everywhere, even in a galaxy far, far away. These feline creatures are known as tooka-cats, or tookas for short, and they are found on numerous planets throughout the galaxy. Tooka-cats have appeared in episodes of the animated series The Clone Wars and Rebels, in several comic books, and recently made their live-action debut in a couple of episodes of The Mandalorian. Here we see several tooka-cats in the wild.

Belgian artist Alain Mauricet has been working in comic books since 1988 when his work began appearing in the long-running French-language comic book anthology Spirou. He subsequently worked on a number of European graphic novels, as well as occasionally venturing into American comic books. Mauricet drew the Dastardly & Mutley and Harley Quinn & The Gang of Harleys miniseries for DC Comics.
