    I just love these heartwarming HN strips. This is just sweet.

    I wish my dog would purr when she naps. Instead she snores, loudly.

    I did not know that about Unicorns. Also when I saw the 1st panel I was like “Oh know Marigold is dead!” the last panel reminds me of Red & Rover. I’ll have to stop by and see if any horse owners can shed light on Equestrian purring. Comments, there educational.

    More C&H ties. I guess she’s “growling friendly-like.”

    As i go scrolling back up to get to the next comic I just saw Panel 3, her leg is twitching in her sleep like a dog. Wounder what Unicorns dream about?

    First unicorns aren’t horses despite the superficial resemblances. So talking to equestrians is a waste of time.
    What you need do is to speak to those who know unicorns. Or continue to read Dana ’s strip and all will be answered.

    This strip was obviously inspired by the author’s kitty cat. Streched out in a sunbeam, purring and twiching in dreamland. Sleeping horses do not purr, but may make some interesting breathing sounds that could come close. A horse will sleep laid out like that for only about an hour or so and only when they feel safe. It is an ultimate expression of trust for an equine to lay down and sleep in your presence. I am sure this last point applies to our unicorn in the last frame.

    But it is still good.

    Here is a list of strips that ARE as good as Calvin & Hobbes:

    “Unicorns do NOT purr.”

    At least not in polite company…

    “Calvin and Hobbes” is a wanna-be “Barnaby” strip. It is not nearly as good.

    A horse does make a noise like a purr. It is a little grunt/sigh of content. It isn’t as constant running as the cat purr.
    Mine would make the noise after taking a good roll and a dust bath. He’d lay out in the sunbeam like a cat. And he’d be so comfortable and happy I couldn’t resist sitting down in the dust pit and drowsing with him. Never where PHE is sitting, more by the shoulder.

    No one needs to tear down any comic strips here.
