Tabitha looks great in her rock climbing gear.
Come on, Elvis. You can do this. Remember – courage.
Looks like Elvis is also in need of rescuing.
Panel four is making me dizzy.
Come on, Elvis! The ladies are leaving you behind. Step it up!
And I love the idea of Tillie as a ghostly guardian of the big pink house!
Don’t give up, Elvis, you must have faith in yourself.
The crabby tabby is smiling in the last panel.
Oh no, Elvis has fallen behind! Be brave, Elvis, do it for Pucky!
You can see in panel 2 that Elvis is not sure about this. But I am (pretty) sure he will rally!
Looks like Elvis is going to be a firm believer in ghosts after this
We could have used a certain polydactyl kitten in this situation; she’s a great climber! (did I say too much?)
Dear gocomics code monkeys turn ‘word wrap’ back on again
Hey, now, Tabitha, your Floor People are smart enough to keep their dumbwaiter shut, too. Puck’s only up here because the door that was always closed was open for some reason. Could have been a Toddler, who knows?
Elvis is losing ground to Tabitha. He needs to man-up.
OMC, last panel! Tabitha’s smiling! Squee!
I thought a dumbwaiter was enclosed to pull up and down the shaft. Why are they climbing the walls?
Awwww! There’s Tabitha! And she’s been guarding the whole house all this time, along with Tillie (unbeknownst to her until now)! This means we’ll get to see ALL the rest of the house!! Squeeee!
NOT happy! Tried every 2 minutes for the last half hour to get on & when I do, all you folks are ahead! I must be missing a key move. :-(
Anyway, I am happy to have completed 60 circuits around Ol’ Sol, and my wish is for each of you to have a wonderful day! ☺
Now, since Hallowe’en is now officially one week away, may I ask each of you what your favorite candy would be? I mean, if you were to only have ONE type, what would it be? Mine would be Haribo sweet/sour Twin Snakes.
Love & blessings!!! >^.,.^<
Third panel, to whom does the talking bubble belong?
A ghost distracting Elvis as he makes the perilous climb to the baleful attic. Utterly doomed.
Okay, I think that Elvis’s raised paw or paws are him hanging on to the wall, but why is he facing out into the shaft?
Attagirl, Tillie. No reason being dead should excuse you from your responsibilities.
Elvis just has to envision this as a bout for the WWC (did I get that right?) championship belt. You can do it, Elvis!
Just one. Just one? Well, there’s creme tangerine, Montélimar, ginger sling with a pineapple heart, coffee dessert, cool cherry cream, a nice apple tart,coconut fudge (which really blows down those blues), but… what I really like is a Savoy truffle.
Kidding aside… I love, but one at a time with a recovery period before another, Ferrero Rocher Italian Hazelnut Chocolates. A roasted hazelnut center enveloped in a creamy chocolate ganache, englobed in a crispy wafer sphere, covered with milk chocolate, studded with more roasted hazelnut chopped bits. A riot of tastes and textures. Chew? Crunch? Allow to melt? Decisions!
For cats, country and courage!!! Go Elvis and Tabitha!!!
Courage is being afraid and still taking the next step. Way to go, rescue team!
Looks like Tabitha is warming up to Tillie. This will be an unmatched Female Feline Team :D
Poor, scared Elvis. His face in that second panel breaks my heart.
I see many more adventures throughout the Big Pink House now that the Kitties have their own avenue for getting around. Elvis will not fail in the climb, not for his friend Pucky and certainly not in front of Tabitha. -————————————————————————————————————————————————————————(Sound of Morse Code in the background)…Hello Spirit Cats and all the Ships at Sea. This is RCO-Radio Cat Oracle, Your Ghost Cat News Network…
News Flash: Only six more episodes of the case of the Perilously Penned In Pucky. With our live (and not quite live) hero’s on the way, will they be in time*? Will Freddie make an appearance? Will Lupin have to save Elvis during the climb? Will Sir Figaro get more speaking parts now that the subtitles are working? Tune in tomorrow for Episode 16 – Attic or Bust!
*Spoiler for the little kittens out there, of course they will be in time!
BTW, check out Cleo and Company on Comics Sherpa today. It is part two of the Bassett Exorcist and the demon cat possessed puppy and it is hilarious.
Big eyed Elvis love it.
To my deep and lasting chagrin I realized while looking down the dumbwaiter shaft in panel 4 the answer to my question a couple of days ago about why the pulley seemed to be on the other side in the basement. The pulley can’t change sides, of course, but the various doors can open on different sides of the shaft. Duh.
Good morning and happy Wednesday/Hump Day, orbsters and orbabies!
I think Agatha spooked Elvis and now he is having a major panic attack. Tillie, look down, quick! Mr. Angry Fussy Paws needs encouragement. And, Tabitha, it would not be kind of you to laugh at him.
Off Topic: Georgia on the website announced paintings! "Georgia Dunn – Breaking Cat News19 hrs · I’m going to try to finish this painting up today so I can finally put together that EBay auction I’d had planned this summer! This week I’ll put two original paintings up for sale on EBay, and the proceeds will go to our friend Michael Davis who survived his double lung transplant this past summer!
Folks who collect my paintings have requested EBay auctions for some time, rather than the “first come, first serve” style of Etsy. BCN paintings in the Etsy shop have set prices, but tend to sell out quickly (less than an hour last time!) I’ve done one other EBay auction in 2015, I believe, and have meant to do more, writing the comic and life just have me strapped for time most weeks!
I plan to have another sale of originals sometime in November, with those proceeds being the typical “pay off some debts, get ready for tax season, hopefully savings account??” variety. The sale this week will be something more special; a chance to own a BCN original AND a chance to make it a little easier for a terrific guy with a second chance to just take some well deserved deep breaths and live his life!
Lupin was right, you know—he should have gone instead of Elvis. Now we might need to rescue Elvis, too. And in other news, will Agatha and Tillie pop up to the attic and give Pucky a status report? If they do, he’ll worry about Elvis.
Whoa! Judging from some of y’all’s favorite candies, I’d say you’ve been trick ’r treating in wealthy neighborhoods…
Darn! Now they’ve screwed up the targeted replies… Just as someone predicted yesterday.
This is only strip I read that regularly has more comments than likes.
Elvis IS the worst climber ever
Liking Elvis’ workout/gym shorts outfit so much! :)
Even though Lupin was told Elvis had to do the climbing I am kind of surprised he isn’t there anyway. He is the cat of adventure after all. Though like I think someone said yesterday, I can just see Lupin and Figaro already up there when Elvis and Tabitha get to the attic. Both of them are good at getting around, Figaro’s woman said in the first Halloween special that he is always showing up in unexpected places. There is obviously another way to the attic besides the dumbwaiter and if anyone knows that way I am guessing that Figaro would.
And I have thwarted the random line break problem by adding an HTML line break
[< P > without the spaces] where I want the break to be.
Many Happy Returns…and sponge candy (it’s a western NY thing)
I’m sensing that Tabitha is sensing a kindred spirit (no pun intended)
Poor Elvis. I suffer from mild vertigo myself, but strangely only when I’m looking up at things framed against the sky (or the sky itself). Looking down never causes me problems!
Georgia: Great perspective work!! Love it!!
. . . check out Ms Dunn’s new art! :) https://www.facebook.com/GeorgiaDunnStudio/photos/pcb.2123837040995038/2123836690995073/?type=3&theater
. . . guess who made #1 in GoComics, today? WOW! :) https://www.gocomics.com/swan-eaters/2018/10/24
HAPPY BIRTHDAY @SHAUNMUNN!
Oh Shaunmunn, I hope your day is as special as you are, I tried to reply to you but my cmpur won’t let me so, I hope you see this!!! & Liquerice allsorts, (Bassets of course)!!!
I was wondering why the rescue party didn’t go to the upstairs apartment from the basement and then only have to climb the dumbwaiter shaft one floor. (I know, less adventure and dramatic tension) But now we know that Tabitha’s People make that impossible by keeping the door shut!
Love Agatha waving to Elvis.
Will Elvis make it to the top? Or will he be stuck on the ledge? Stay tuned. (I think he’ll come through for Pucky, though).
Gotta add one more, since I moved to Maine and discovered Needhams… a dark chocolate confection filled with mashed potatoes. Mmm!(newengland.com/today/food/desserts/candy/needhams-2)
Folks, I understand why Tillie used to used the dumbwaiter shaft to get around, but what I don’t get is why she still needs to? Noncorporeal, after all.
I don’t get to look at these until mid-day, but wanted you all to know about my adventure. This morning, as I drove west toward work under clear skies, I saw the big, beautiful Hunter’s Moon. (ed. note: full today!) Trepidation stirred my heart, as somewhere I’d heard the legend of the werefloof.
Standing on the train platform in the still fall air I again saw the full moon, and I heard the distant plaintive cry, “Hellooooooooooooo”. Unfortunately, I did not get floofed. (ed. note: Fortunately. Tommy, remember, third rail live!)
As I arrived at work the moon was down, so all I got was some lousy hat-hair.
Tabitha seems to be warming up to Tillie.
Off topic: After looking for the Pineapple Lumps ad on shaunmunns thread about favourite lollies, I went down the classic NZ adverts rabbit hole. Just thought I would share a few. They most likely only make sense to NZers.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0kE060jzbU&index=30&t=0s&list=PLB6BF17D86762206F
I’m not sure if it was Sooti’s almost twin, but something ate the food I put out on my porch the other evening. I refilled the food dish and about half of it has already been eaten.
Put me down as a Reese’s gal, all the way. Side order of peanut m and ms, please
Good evening, everyone! I’m so happy that everyone has been enjoying the Halloween special and tuning in each day! Thank you!!!
If you have not seen on FB or Twitter, I’m auctioning off three original watercolor paintings over the next five days! Our EBay auctions for these three original watercolor paintings are LIVE, and you can find them here:
“Morning Coffee on the Solstice”https://www.ebay.com/itm/273524443128
“There Goes the Boom”https://www.ebay.com/itm/273524446365
“On the Scene”https://www.ebay.com/itm/273524448486
These auctions will come at an end on Monday October 29th around 4:45 pm Pacific Time (please check each painting for the up-to-the-minute end of the auction, as they each close a few minutes apart!)
The proceeds from these three paintings will go to our friend Michael “Mickey” Davis, who underwent a successful double lung transplant this summer!
I think Agatha shot up to tell Tillie and Tabitha that Elvis was having some problems.
Love the ghost mouse waving at Elvis!
You know, I think Elvis is stuck on that ledge. He hasn’t moved from panel 3 to panel 5.
Occurred to me last night—how the heck does/did the dumbwaiter box travel up and down with all those bricks sticking out?
