"Cartooning is a wonderful career, and I'd like more women to get to have it. I can't think of any reason why we won't see more syndicated female cartoonists in the future." -- Cathy Guisewite
Cathy Lee Guisewite (born September 5, 1950) is the cartoonist who created the comic strip Cathy in 1976. Her main cartoon character (Cathy) is a career woman faced with the issues and challenges of work, relationships, her mother and food, or as Guisewite herself put it in one of her strips, "The four basic guilt groups."

Guisewite was born in Dayton, Ohio, grew up in Midland, Michigan, and graduated from Midland High School with the class of 1968. She started writing comic strips at the urging of her mother and was first published in 1976 by Kansas City-based Universal Press Syndicate, now Universal Uclick. She attended the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor where she was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority. Guisewite received her bachelor's degree in English in 1972. She also holds seven honorary degrees.

In 1993, Guisewite received the Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year from the National Cartoonists Society. In 1987, she received an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program for the TV special Cathy, which aired on CBS. Guisewite was a frequent guest in the latter years of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Guisewite and her husband Chris Wilkinson reside in Los Angeles. She has a daughter and a stepson.

One of Guisewite's classmates at University of Michigan was Lawrence Kasdan. When Kasdan's movie The Big Chill opened, Guisewite devoted an entire week of Cathy strips to this movie, with her character Cathy and Cathy's co-workers all enthusing over the film and seeing it repeatedly.

On August 11, 2010, Guisewite announced the comic strip's retirement. It came to an end with the Sunday strip on October 3, 2010.
