That’s it. I want Puck with me during my life crises.
And Mow Mow Cat (aka mom cat) is there.
Puck is such a good listener.
I’m trying to figure dog bit.
You’re a great friend, Puck.
Since the Toddler isn’t in a throw-down tantrum, I’d say Puck’s listening skills are helping a lot.
I am rather lacking in People-kittens, so unfortunately I don’t speak Toddler.
“Pengo broke, mow mow cat..” That is just insanely cute and, sadly, actually makes more sense than a lot of tweets coming out of that big white house on Pennsylvania Ave… :-p
The last panel!! ROTFL! I’m so glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read this!
Warm Mewsday greetings, beloved Orb Leader & loyal orbsters! Loving boops & Pucky purrs (the most powerful I can imagine) to our grieving, ill, worried, anticipating, dreading, and worn out orbsters & their personal orbs. May the peace & love generated within the fellowship help pull you through. We’re here! Hearts wide open! ♥♥♥
Love & blessings!!! >^.,.^<
We get two panels of Pucky eyebrows!
How powerful this is. My tears welled up even as I was laughing. Who has not, even as an adult, suffered a loss that seems it may go on forever?
I think the toddler just doesn’t have enough words yet to explain how he feels or what happens, so he’s throwing out all the words he knows. Fortunately, Puck is a good listener who understands the emotions and provides comfort.
The syntax may be a little unconventional, but I get most of this. Still trying to figure out “pop pop” though.
I feel your pain Toddler…….
I love the way Georgia draws the kids – they are real people with distinct features and emotions. You can see the pain and concern and worry in panel three. I think the pop, pop is the sound of Pengo bumping around in the dryer, too.
I know this is a happy strip (in spite of Elvis’ best efforts) and so all will be well in the end, but I’m finding the tension hard to bear.
Good morning and happy Tuesday/Mewsday/Bluesday, orbsters and orbabies. Best wishes for everyone. Everything is rolling along normally here.
Freeform at it’s best.
Hello all!! My thought is that Pengo got dirty when a dog picked up Pengo like a dog toy – “No dog. MY Pengo.”
I agree that the “Pop pop” might be the sounds of Pengo in dryer. But, maybe – “Pengo broke, Mow Mow cat.” If Pengo “popped” a seam, or just had a hole with stuffing coming out, when Pengo was retrieved from the dog, what the toddler says would describe it perfectly. Dog took Pengo like a doggie toy. “NO NO Dog! MY Pengo!”. Got Pengo back wounded, so Georgia stitched up Pengo, then it was time for a bath. (Can’t wash first THEN stitch, all the stuffing would come out in the process!)
What’cha all think?
This is so sweet. Puck with his paw on the Toddler’s shoulder and the Toddler telling his troubles to Puck.
The Toddler has a kindred spirit in my Woman. She occasionally refers to Ember as “Meow Meow” as well, which started because Ember basically didn’t make a sound for about the first month and a half after she came to live with us, and then she went through a period where she talked constantly to make up for lost time. She didn’t respond to “Ember” for a while, either, but did pay attention when Stacy impulsively called her “Meow Meow” during her talkative phase … so that’s, for lack of a better term, her pet name for Ember now.

Cats are very good consolers.
Didn’t realize the Toddler could quote “Ulysses.”
Doesn’t seem like The Toddler is holding up all that well.
Warm, fuzzy feelings from my kids’ childhood. Thanks, Georgia!
I love Puck more and more each day.
Mind-bending Pengo withdrawal?
We had a summer camp, and a small motor boat. One day the boat sprang a leak and sank in about 3’ of water. My toddler niece came up to her dad (my brother) and informed him “boat broke”. Never will forget her spot-on and informative words.
Puck the cure for what ails ya!
I just realized something. I talk just like the toddler and Giblet the Cat listens just like Pucky…after I have had my Martini on Friday evenings.
Was that a blues-y sax I heard in the last panel??
I think I found the book I mentioned in a post yesterday! I am pretty sure the book is “Uncle Whiskers” (which was published in 1974). I have now ordered a copy (I ordered the cheapest of the used paperback copies as that is all I can afford right now). If anyone else is interested, here is a link to the listing on Amazon:
Let it all out Toddler, the catharsis will do you good! Especially with Puck there to help you!
Makes me think of the Tears for Fears (and the Disturbed remake) song Shout. shout, shout, let it all out, these are the things I can do without.
With all this Mow Mow talk, what does Puck think of ZZ Top?
Has someone posted this yet?
The Toddler does a good Magnitude impression. Pop pop!
Do you mean mother cat ;)
