Zentangles are beautiful drawings made up of intricate patterns. Drawing or coloring them is supposed to promote mindfulness and relaxation. Many adult coloring books are made up of zentangles, and some people swear by them to reduce stress.
You can find free cat zentangles online if you want to try coloring one yourself. Just head to Google, switch to an image search, and type in “cat zentangle,” and you should find some options that you can download yourself.
However, many of them will have a watermark on them as they are copyrighted images that someone has made. These artists are super-talented and have a right to charge people to download their images.
It’s always good to support artists and small business owners, so here are nine unique cat zentangles that you can download for a small fee to help alleviate your tension and give a helping hand to these talented creators.

This lounging cat may be ideal if repeating patterns are visually appealing to you. Its body is split into sections with its own repetitions, giving you hours of detail to color at your own pace. However, it’s a larger design and will take longer than many others on this list.

This cat head might be ideal if you want a more gentle introduction to zentangle artwork. It has fewer intricate details, with larger sections making it easier to stick to one color at a time. However, it’s still very striking and attractive despite the relative simplicity.

This design requires less coloring again, and with many darker pre-filled sections, it could be printed as artwork as it is without looking bland or empty. So, if long-haired cats are your style, check out this impressive design.

This pretty design combines simple, striking lines with the cat’s head, long flowing whiskers, and the finer detail of twisting plants and flowers almost woven into the cat. Another offers variety – small sections when you want to focus and larger areas for mindless coloring.

This stretching cat in an almost yoga-esque pose has many blacked-out sections but offers an alternative way of coloring. With negative space filled in, you can focus on using shades in the lines that form your unique design patterns.
