I LOVE this strip – the good-natured characters; the good-hearted captain; the battles where nobody gets hurt; the thieving rabbits; Charley, the indomitable gardener; Nate’s failures with diets and the onset of winter; Raymond who speaks both English and Dog; the ever-playful Louie. It’s all so CHARMING! But I am SO tired of these mice (always HAVE been). Where’s that giant cat when we need him? – Usually our amiable cartoonist is open to suggestions but he seems determined to keep these tiny tiresome rodents.
