Fat Freddy’s Cat is a fictional orange tomcat nominally belonging to Fat Freddy Freekowtski, one of the Freak Brothers, a trio of hippies who are featured in Gilbert Shelton’s underground comix. He first appeared in 1969 in underground newspapers as a character in The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers strip, and later had his own small topper strip,
Fat Freddy’s Cat has a fertile imagination, and one of his storylines featured him playing the role of “F. Frederick Skitty”, an undercover agent sworn to stop the distribution of “Tee Hee Hee”, a drug that turned people into homosexuals. In another story, one of Fat Freddy’s schemes involved trying to replicate Dick Whittington’s success by selling the Cat to the (fictional) small, oil-rich nation of Pootweet to deal with mice.
