Someone should show the old man how to set an avatar photo.
So it seems Elvis hardly deigns to comment.
I don’t recognize the iconography. I assume the “suns” represent “stars” in standard reviews. Are the aqua cats the number of “likes” and the red “starbursts” number of comments? And of course Elvis has a generic avatar. ;)
Mmmmmmm, old book smell!
Elvis, what has Beatrix got that you don’t? Think hard!
A pepperoni scented pizza box, lined with a fuzzy bathmat, perched on top of a fancy purple couch, all in bookstore filled with that cozy book smell … a kitty can dream, can’t she? :)
Please, somebody explain this for me. What is it a satire of? (Yes I understand they are reviews. I’d like to visit the original to compare.)
It’s too early yet, but when the time is right, please remember that there is, alas, no shortage of cats and kittens who need a good home. And I know you can provide one.
An oldie but goodie from The Hollies: Bus Stop
Sunspot, warm day she’s there all day
Looking through the window
Sunset spot goes, she has photos
Taken through the window
All that summer she took pictures
And hid in boxes downstairs,
Frightened kitty, she does not know
There’s no need to be scared
Any morning we might see her
A glimpse is all we saw
But on a sunny day we hope she finds her spot
She is as elusive as any robber mouse,
But some day she’ll live in The Pink House.
Sunspot, cool day she’s there we say
Please come in and join us
Sunrise, new day we all still say
Please come in and join us.
Feel free to show us all your pictures
Or just leave them aside
Goldie, please know we all love you,
And safely you’ll abide.
I love how Bea has gone nuts with the points. And Elvis… hasn’t.
All of their descriptions are excellent.
Be still, my heart. Elvis has a succinct review without hyperbole. I love this ca.
Hmm… What’s this all about? And why Elvis has got no profile pic and poor ratings?
Just want to thank you all again for your sympathy, kind words of comfort, tears and hopes for a good outcome. I know I will always find kind hearts and good wishes on these pages. Bless you all. XOX
Ancient catstronaut theorists suggest that housecats are sunbeam devotees.
(No, actually this is suggested by Garfield the cat. See today’s comic).
I know I’ve mentioned that the areas to the north of me was devastated by a cluster of tornadoes that hit on Memorial Day. One of the schools won’t be able to open until September 23 due to all the damage. Many of the students are still displaced. They are requesting letters to welcome those students back to school. I know some of us are current or retired teachers. They need letters for Pre K through 12. The letters for little ones might be more challenging to write, but some of these kids lost everything. If anybody would care to participate, more details can be found here:
Beatrix certainly looks as if she’s becoming an influencer in the sunspot rating world.
Beatrix is a chatty little thing, isn’t she?
Poor Elvis. He is such a Luddite when it comes to technology. Caps always on, no avatar and signs his name even though his name is on the post. We fellow technophobes salute our brave, furry brother and salute his audacity when delving into this technological witchcraft.
I personally think we are doomed!
I have no idea how to do that either
Morning my sunspotting aficionados! As Ally & Lexus argue on their sunspots… Today is cast clinic and x-ray on my wrist. It’s still paining me somewhat, I hope it’s a normal pain but it has been almost 8 weeks! I do hope it’s set straight and they don’t have to reset it again…I really want to end this summer on a happy note!
Oh, Tommy? Is that a delicate cabinet made of glass or a cabinet filled with delicate glass? Inquiring minds want to know!
SOOOOOO,where is Lupins sunspot? My 2 reporters Sam Axe aka Sammy and Fiona aka snowpawz whanna no y
I love how Elvis uses his account. Absolutely perfect for the crabbiest cat.
I made it through the day yesterday, and it was a good day for the client. Even managed to get him out to look at the ocean.
But, i’m paying for it this morning. I had to get up this morning at around 3:00 because my right hip is killing me.
I’m falling apart.
Kiki has two. On on a chair set near a big westward facing window. The other is under the skylight in the kitchen.
Yum Yum’s favourite sunny perch is the back of the loveseat. She also favours Paul’s lap and can sleep there for hours at a time.
OT: Andrea update in comments!
We have an apartment with east/west exposure. Lucky Miss Silly Creature has an abundance of good spots on a sunny day.
Speaking of Sweetheart, what’s up with How To Cat, nothing new there for almost a month?
Well guys i certainly hope your prepared for the coming crowds youndraw to your sun spots!
Now really – is sweet Tommy going to give any sunspot a bad rating? Even a lukewarm, barely there, watery winter day sunspot would get some kind of positive remark from Tommy.
You’d have to be silly to go to the trouble of setting a custom avatar just to leave comments somewhere.
Since our guys can go outside, they have an abundance of sun spots on the wood ricks, (actually, cat jungle-gyms, but they let us put firewood in them). However, I built shelves on the windows of the enclosed back porch, the sun-room windows, and the south dining room window for when they are inside. No, we don’t spoil our guys at all …
Puck, ever the foody. I like pepperoni too!!!
Tommy’s ‘Fancy Purple Couch’:
“Fancy doesn’t begin to cover it! …”
…But Tommy WILL ‘cover it’ – in napping splendor! Sorry, you’ll just have to find another seat! :)
Oh sheep dip! Six of you just liked or replied to my posts, but when I clicked on the first, all the notifications disappeared. Don’t know if I somehow clicked the wrong thing, or one of GoComics intermittent malfs did it. Anyway, sorry about that. I’m not ignoring you!
Hope that’s not an overly greasy pizza in the box, Pucky.
Off Topic: Hope this isn’t inappropriate but we’re all here because we love cats and/or dogs and it turns out, many of us are writers. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Chicken Soup for the Soul https://www.chickensoup.com/story-submissions/possible-book-topics At the bottom of the list of current topics for next year’s anthologies is one for cats and one for dogs – each a 1200 word personal experience essay. Thing is they pay real money ($200). Thing is, they apparently get a lot of submissions. Anyway, it’s open into January and you can’t lose anything by submitting something.
Sunspot – Leofgifu – “Corner of white window sill, with excellent view of an ash tree with three bird-feeders, and a view of Boulder’s Flatirons! Fantastic warmth, enticing views.”

OT: My Stories
Warning to Shaunmunn -
Ascension has a lot of sad stuff. I recommend that you not skip from chapter 5 through to the last chapter. The epilogue should be fine.
You probably should skip the prologue for Beginnings too, as it is very intense. The epilogue for Ascension can be substituted instead.
The other stories should all be OK for you to read, especially the newest one: Rumors (which I have decided to basically make into Cinderella, Maizing style… he he).
Have I completely lost my mind, or was there a post from Lalybarger saying that shaunnmunn has cancelled her Go Comics membership. If this is so, we must continue to keep the Mega Orb together in her honour. I hope you are all in with me.
Yes the old pizza box
Can we get to three hundred comments
Can’t find Sooti’s human’s comments to reply directly, but she is very, very beautiful.
