Geluck’s best-known work is the comic strip Le Chat, which is one of the ten best-selling Franco-Belgian comics series. The title character is an adult, human-sized, anthropomorphic cat, who first appeared in March 22, 1983.

The Le Chat series ran until March 23, 2013. One page in length, it appeared weekly in the “Victor” supplement of Belgian newspaper Le Soir. For Le Chat’s 20th anniversary in 2003, Le Soir allowed Geluck to illustrate that day’s entire newspaper.
