Come on Lupin. Give Elvis some words of encouragement before he heads off. Sometimes a cat must dare to do what he thinks he can’t. Or something like that …
Aww, look at Lupin in a cute Mew t-shirt delicately delivering insults :-D
Elvis has his hiking stick. Have faith Lupin!
You’d think that with Siamese claws, Elvis would be a good climber.
Go forth, Elvis. The fate of Puck’s return rests in your paws.
Goodbye it is. “The best laid plans of mice and cats gang aft agley”, as the great Robert Purrns said, and I expect the evil forces in the attic will make this rescue plan gang as agley as possible. They are utterly doomed.
“How can I put this delicately?” Snerk!
So Lupin is the only one who can’t see or hear ghosts. But why not? Ghosts don’t have bodies with lungs or vocal chords, so they must use some other method to communicate, right? I mean, I know this must be necessary for the plot line to reach Halloween, but still, so unfair to Lupin. Maybe GD will figure out some way to let Lupin in on the fun before this arc is over?
Don’t know why, but I’m thinking Elvis would be singing “The Happy Wanderer” while climbing.
Maybe Elvis would be a better climber if he was missing a foot. Not that Puck means to brag, mind you.
By the way, what’s with GoComics breaking words in the middle even when they’ve been typed properly?
GET FREDDIE, TILLIE!!! Lupin can see Freddie. Can’t hear her, but he can see her.
Wonder why Lupin and, I’m guessing here based on the original special, Sir Figaro can’t see Tillie. I get why Lupin can’t hear here, he can’t hear anyone. Is that a prerequisite for seeing Tillie? If so, shouldn’t Sir Figaro be able to see her. I mean we know both he and Lupin saw Freddie in the original special so it seems that don’t need to be able to hear to see human ghosts. But I thought Sir Figaro could hear and so far this just confirms only Lupin can’t see Tillie. No confirmation yet on Sir Figaro beign able to see or hear her.
GASP! Oh Lupin, how could you be so mean? Elvis can do this! When you are weak, then you are strong! And with Tillie to help him, he can’t go wrong. But I have a question…. “The Mew”??? What’s that tag on Lupin’s chest mean?
Why are the comments wrapping in the middle of words, and not at spaces as they should?
“I guess this is goodbye…” There’s a confidence builder.
Elvis has this.
I love that Tillie feels she must whisper to Elvis behind her paw that Lupin can neither see nor hear her!
Elvis is climbing out of his comfort zone.
Lupin! Mew are you?
Where are you going, Elvis?
*Up, up, up past the Russell Hotel
Up, up, up, up to the Heaviside layer*
I don’t believe that.
Would you believe… the attic?
The first landing in the stairwell?
How about this countertop?
But I thought the whole group would climb up together! Or, are they going one at a time so if one falls it doesn’t knock everyone off? And meanwhile back in the attic, how is Puck holding up? Oh the suspense!
I want that T-shirt.
So, not all cats can see Tillie? That’s interesting. What is it about the cat that allows them to communicate with the Spirit world? Pucky, Tabitha and Elvis have the ability but not Lupin or Sir Figaro? I hope Georgia explains going forward. Not unlike the Harry Potter franchise, we are lucky to be exploring a new Universe with its own mythos.
Last ponderable for everyone, do you think Freddie Quinn will make an appearance looking for Tille? Where has the o’e’ cat gotten too this time?
And again I wake up the Woman laughing out loud at this strip. And that was only at the third panel.
Courage to you, Elvis – to the rescue!
I’m gonna go a-wandering
Amidst the stone and dust
I’m gonna go up to the attic
Don’t want to but I must
I have to rescue my kitty friend
Let the climbing now commence
I know I’ve got this, ready now
Lupin, thanks for the confidence
Mee-ow, Mee-yew, Mee-ow, Mee-yew, yew, yew, yew, yew yew, yew
Thanks for the confidence
Traditional: The Happy(?) Wanderer

Good morning and happy Tuesday/Mewsday/Bluesday, orbsters and orbabies! I find myself wondering why Lupin, the Cat of Adventure, isn’t gearing up to go with Elvis; also, why Tabitha, the Alpha female, isn’t right up there with him as she would never be willing to let Elvis steal a march on her. As for Sir Figaro, who knows?
Elvis is… smiling??
And love the optimism, Lupin!
Elvis Can’t explain, but there can be no Substitute, as he says I’m a boy & will show everyone The real me. He may not be the best climber, but he’s no Slip kid ‘cause Behind blue eyes he Can see for Miles & he won’t be a Happy Jack until Puck can say I’m free and they can all Join together! You better, you bet!!
Perhaps the not quite alive crew choose who can see & hear them?? Anyway, Lupin is not being mean in panel 3, just stating the truth, which could have been done more tactfully, & sometimes needs to be said. But Lupin, sweetie, that’s definitely mean in the last panel, a little encouragement goes a long way!!
For some people (and cats), “how do I put this delicately” means “here’s a sledgehammer of truth in your face”.
Why can’t Lupin see Tilly?
Maybe Lupin and Sir Fig are staying behind because someone has to pull the rope to send the dumbwaiter up to the attic.
Lupin the realist. I like Lupin. He calls it as he sees it.
Lupin’s “The Mew” shirt is killing me :-) “The Mew, Maximum In Sun and Snooze”
AWWWWWW….. Love this one!
Lovin’ Lupin’s T-shirt!! :)
It’s always a shock when Elvis exhibits altruism or empathy. He’s a real cat’s cat.
I LOVE ‘The Mew’ tee Lupin’s sporting!
his is why I love Elvis. And Lupin has redeemed himself for all his snarkiness—until the last panel.
I do wonder that Elvis is a poor climber, being Siamese.
Stay tuned for Elvis to get stuck & Tabitha to rescue HIM!
The look on Elvis’ face – “For cats, country, and COURAGE”….
You mean like your “spa” on line one, and then “ces” on line 2?
LOVE the MEW shirt!
It’s time to be A GOOD BOY!!! (the BEST Boy!) Go Elvis!!! But bring a friend, Please!
The Mew is my favorite band! Pete Tailsend, Roger Pawltrey, John Catwhistle and Keith Mewn! Best band ever!
I WANT A ‘THE MEW’ T-SHIRT
