Philosophy Cat..."Dharma the Cat"
Dharma the Cat is a philosophical humorous webcomic by David Lourie. The topics of Dharma the Cat handle the basic philosophical questions of life and existence.

Dharma - A Buddhist, black and white cat, whose thoughts can be interpreted by the reader.
Bodhi - A Buddhist novice monk, who tries to walk the path to enlightenment.
Siam - A mouse, hell-bent on cheese, who can communicate with Dharma.
