Omaha The Cat Dancer was a highly acclaimed and controversial furry comic book created and drawn by Reed Waller and predominantly written by Kate Worley. Its first episode was published in Vootie #8 as the response to Taral Wayne's question to Waller: "why isn't there more sex in funny animals?"
Featuring the adventures of Omaha (her last name is never given), a feline exotic dancer, and her lover Chuck Tabey, this comic was one of the first major furry series to introduce a furry subgenre called "slice of life", in which the furry nature of the characters is mostly a cosmetic artistic style for realistic stories anchored in contemporary human society. The furry nature is usually restricted to animals' heads, fur colour, and tails.
