Draw Cat In Python Turtle With Code

Looking for a tutorial on how to draw cat in python turtle, then you are at the right place today. In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a cat in python turtle, so follow this tutorial till the end.

We will use the turtle module to draw a cat using python. It is a GUI python library which can be used to draw anything from characters, cartoons, shapes and other objects.

Drawing a cat in python is difficult if you are new to python, but don’t worry I will show you everything and provide you with the code of this program. 

Python Code To Draw A Cat

import turtle
import math

window = turtle.Screen()

cursor = turtle.Turtle() # Cursor

def movePen(cursor, x, y):
  cursor.setposition(x, y)

def movePenX(cursor, x):

def movePenY(cursor, y):

def positionAlongCircle(x, y, radius, angle):
  radians = math.radians(angle)
  return [x + (radius*math.sin(radians)),
            y + (radius*math.cos(radians))]

# Draw the head

movePenY(cursor, -150)

# Draw the nose

noseMouthOffset = -15

movePenY(cursor, -20 + noseMouthOffset)

# Draw the mouth

movePen(cursor, -100, -20 + noseMouthOffset)
cursor.circle(50, 180)
cursor.circle(50, 180)

# Draw the eyes

eyeSpacingX = 30
eyePosY = 40
eyeRadius = 30

# Right eye

movePen(cursor, eyeSpacingX, eyePosY)
cursor.circle(eyeRadius, -180)

# Left eye

movePen(cursor, -eyeSpacingX, eyePosY)
cursor.circle(eyeRadius, 180)

# Draw the tongue

movePen(cursor, -20, -60 + noseMouthOffset)
cursor.circle(20, 180)

# Draw the ears

# Right ear

earBeginAngle = 25
earSize = 85
earWidth = 22
positionA = positionAlongCircle(0, 0, 150, earBeginAngle)
movePen(cursor, positionA[0], positionA[1])

positionB = positionAlongCircle(0, 0, 150 + earSize, earBeginAngle + earWidth)
cursor.setposition(positionB[0], positionB[1])

positionC = positionAlongCircle(0, 0, 150, earBeginAngle + earWidth * 2)
cursor.setposition(positionC[0], positionC[1])

# Left ear

positionA = positionAlongCircle(0, 0, 150, -earBeginAngle)
movePen(cursor, positionA[0], positionA[1])

positionB = positionAlongCircle(0, 0, 150 + earSize, -earBeginAngle + -earWidth)
cursor.setposition(positionB[0], positionB[1])

positionC = positionAlongCircle(0, 0, 150, -earBeginAngle + -earWidth * 2)
cursor.setposition(positionC[0], positionC[1])

# Whiskers

whiskerLength = 180

# Right whiskers

movePen(cursor, 50, -15)

movePen(cursor, 50, 0)

# Left whiskers

movePen(cursor, -50, -15)

movePen(cursor, -50, 0)


Above is the python program to draw a cat. Now to run this program you need to have python installed on your computer, If you don’t have then follow this guide: Install and setup python on your computer.

To run this python program, follow the below steps:

  • Create a new folder for this python project.
  • Open it in a code editor of your choice.
  • Create a python file with an ending .py extension.
  • Copy the above code and paste it in your file.

Now you have the code, but there is one last thing you need to do as I have said I have used the turtle library for this program so you might need to install it if you get any errors like turtle module not found.

Turtle comes pre-installed with python setup, but if you get any errors you can reinstall it using the below command.

pip install turtle

So now you have everything setup and you are ready to run the program, so to run this program open a command prompt at your program folder location and paste the below command.

python filename.py
