Tentacle Kitty
 is a comic about... well, Tentacle Kitty. She is a kitty from another dimension that just so happens to have tentacles. Ten of them. She is accidentally brought to Earth thru a series of unfortunate events and while she is curious, friendly and furry, people have a hard time with things they don't understand.

All of that changes when she meets Violet and the cats, Ninja Kitty, and Pirate Kitty. 

Question is... what happens next?

If you are a fan of Tentacle Kitty this is the opportunity to support the creation of more comics! Not only will you get BRAND NEW COMICS continuing the story of Tentacle Kitty and her friends 2 MONTHS BEFORE we release them to the public, but with the higher tier pledges you get access to all sorts of goodies such as concept art, character designs, exclusive backgrounds, live streams, even Q&A.

In the past, conventions are the way Tentacle Kitty has grown. Conventions take up so much time that they have stopped us from making the comic. If we stop doing conventions to work on the comic, we lose our main source of revenue. If we continue doing conventions, we don't have enough time to invest in creating new stories, comics, characters, etc. A catch 22 if you will.

To put it bluntly:
Too Many Cons = No More Comics
Patreon + Less Cons = More Comics

Since we want to get back to making comics and stories, we decided Patreon would be the best way to go about reducing the cons we go to and make creating stories a reality.
If you are unaware, my name is John Merritt. I am the creator of Tentacle Kitty. Together with my wife, Raena, we write the story of Tentacle Kitty. 

For as long as I can remember I've drawn and made up stories. But not just stories, more like entire worlds. I would start with one character, then another, and another, then I would build the plot as I was building the world around them. Animals, beasts, towns, cities, all of them within a single world. I never shared much of anything I made, that is, until Tentacle Kitty. 

Mostly during my down time I draw characters from my weekly Sword & Sorcery game. Sword & Sorcery is basically DnD for hardcore RPG players and Game Masters who enjoy killing player characters a lot.

We have some awesome goals that I think everyone will really enjoy. Everything from PDFs of the comic with bonus content, Ice Cream Socials, to hiring artists to speed up the comics and start producing complete comics much more frequently!
Thank you for being here and being a fan of Tentacle Kitty. Without your support we really and truly would not be here today. We push ourselves hard because of you and the smiles we bring to each and every person who loves Tentacle Kitty. So again, thank you.
