I'm sorry if this is a duplicate question (I bet it is), I didn't really know what to search for.
猫を描く、犬を描かない。 (I draw cats, I don't draw dogs.)
How do you say that sentence without having to repeat 描かない? So it would be 'I draw cats, not dogs.'

Depending on how attached you are to the original meaning, you could go with something like "Instead of dogs, I draw cats": 犬のかわりに猫をかく。
Or go into why it is you don't draw dogs: 犬が好きじゃなくて、猫を書く。
But I'm not sure you're going to find a way to retain the simplicity and precise meaning of your sentence and not repeat yourself.
