Chi's Sweet Home (チーズスイートホーム chīzu suīto hōmu ) is a New York Times best-selling manga series written and illustrated by Kanata Konami. It has been serialized in Kodansha's seinen manga magazine Weekly Morning since 2004. The manga has been licensed for North American distribution by Vertical Inc. To date, it has been collected in eight volumes, with the most recent being published in April 2011. An anime adaptation began airing on 31 March 2008 and was produced by studio Madhouse.
An adorable gray and white kitten with black stripes wanders away from her mother and siblings one day while enjoying a walk outside with her family. Lost in her surroundings, the kitten struggles to find her family and instead is found by a young boy, Youhei, and his mother. They take the kitten home, but as pets are not allowed in their housing complex, they try to find her a new home. This proves to be difficult, and the family decides to keep the kitten. While being housebroken, the kitten mistakenly answers to "Chi" (as in "shi" from shiko, the Japanese word for "urine", as seen in the animation and manga when the main character goes "pee") and this becomes her name. Chi then has a splendid time living with her new family, learning about different things and meeting new people and animals.

The manga series is written and illustrated by Kanata Konami. The first chapter were released with the 22 November 2004 issue of the Weekly Morning manga magazine. So far 6 tankōbon have been released. Contrary to the serialized version, which is black and white, the tankōbon version is in full color. The manga is still ongoing as of March 2011, with an 7th volume released in the Spring of 2010. The English language version of the manga is published by Vertical Inc, and is oriented left-to-right like an American comic, instead of the typical Japanese right-to-left format. One reason for this could be to avoid confusing its young reader demographic.
The anime series is directed by Mitsuyuki Masuhara and produced by Madhouse, the first episode aired on 31 March 2008. The episodes are 3 minutes long and equivalent to one chapter from the manga. The opening theme is "Home is the best!" Ouchi ga ichiban (おうちがいちばん) by Satomi Kōrogi.
The second season of Chi's Sweet Home, called Chi's Sweet Home: New Address (チーズスイートホーム あたらしいおうち Chi's Sweet Home: Atarashii Ouchi) began airing 30 March 2009.
