Oh, I can’t wait to see the mouse’s-eye view from cameras three and four! The cats – and the world! – must look so BIG to them!
OMC! This just keeps getting better! Agnes in a suit with a tiny mic! And Natasha in her spike gear!! SQUEE!!!! XD
Wow this is great, a coordinated cat and mouse adventure! Good luck, all of you!
Gotta love Natasha’s attitude.
Tommy is the only Cat who could lead a battle squad of Mice.
Where did all of Tommy’s pom-poms go in the fourth panel. He can’t lose his flair.
Facebook won’t let me share today (I share BCN every day) today I got a message that says “can not post. This post contains content other Facebook users have reported as abusive”Are the raccoon mafia now manipulating Facebook? What the heck is going on? Can anyone else share today’s comic to FB?
OT: according to Georgia’s Facebook, today is Goldie’s Gotcha Day!!! Happy Gotchaversary sweet girl!
Those trash pandas are going to flee in terror.
I feel much better about Tommy’s safety now that Natasha is in fully-needled armor!
Don’t look now Tommy, but that strange mysterious orange cat is behind you!
Those cameras look awfully heavy for mice. I’m beginning to suspect that this project might not be entirely successful.
Natasha seems to be going undercover as a porcupine.
I wish them all the best of luck.
With all 4 Robber Mice joining the group effort, they’re unstoppable!
Will the robber mice keep the fancy tech or sell it to their favourite fence afterwards?
Go find Goldie’s people!
Also loving the extreme close-up of Violet and Alice.
Three cheers for the robber mice and Admiral Thomas Whiskerstache!
They are locked – er, fluffed and loaded.
I see the plant of many teeth has made its contributions to the effort.
Lupin has at least partially regained his investigative impartiality.
Good morning Mr. Cat,
Your mission Tommy, should you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate the mercenary band of racoons and find out what happen to Goldie’s people. The Racoon images you are looking at are of Junk & Gutter, leaders of the Racoon mob, and are not to be underestimated.
Your IM Force team has been assembled and is on sight in the neighborhood.
As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught by Animal Control, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.
This cartoon strip will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck Tommy
Natasha is ready to launch into a trashcan fight, anytime, anywhere.
Nothing can possibly go wrong with this plan… :P
Today’s Arlo and Janis has another take on cat vs ‘coon. Must be a popular October theme this year. “Davy, Davy Cougar, King of the Wild Frontier…..”
OMC!!! Agnes in her tiny suit is more than I can handle. Cute overload!
Give the robber mice their own sister network with CN.
Elton John said it best about Saturday Night
All of the mates gather ’round the gate,
The gang’s here and ready to rock,
Violet and Alice are carrying the packs,
Ready for Trash O’clock!
Tommy’s all decked out in his Tupperware armor
And Agnes is dressed for success,
Natasha ain’t cute in her thorn-covered suit!
Beware, you don’t wanna mess!
We don’t worry about no Trash Pandas,
We’ll find out what’s goin’ down!
Today is the day for our truth finding!
And we never mess around!
Gather around the trash cans now,
With Tupperware Tommy and friends!
Trash O’clock is the time I like,
Gonna see how this ends!
Ooh! Trash O’clock, Trash O’clock, Trash O’clock, Trash O’clock, Trash O’clock is the time!
This should end well, we all know how great the robber mice activities always turn out….
Georgia on Facebook explains what Goldie Gotcha Day is “One year ago today we brought Goldie into our home! It would still be a couple of weeks before the Boys met her nose to nose, and a couple of months before we officially adopted her. We never expected to adopt another cat, but she won our hearts. Even—almost?—Lupin’s. Happy Gotcha Day to Goldie! We love you!!!”
Natasha looks dangerous!
Meanwhile – is Puck still wrapped around the Man’s head?
Ok i have to admit the yellow orange cats are getting me confused. Is that goldie has she been introduced to the others? Sophie? Sorry
Natasha throws up her paws and shouts, "We will fight them in the alley! We will fight them in the trash bins! For are we Cats or are we Mice?!! Tommy, looking confused as he raises his paw and stammers, “But, errrrrrr?”
I wonder if Georgia will update the characters page to include Goldie.
Happy Friday, Orbsters! It’s a beautiful, crisp fall day here. Looking forward to a calm weekend after spending several hours Wednesday night in the emergency room with partner, who scared the bejesus out of me. He complained of dizziness and pressure in his chest while we were out playing trivia at the local brewery, and then actually asked me to call 911 (unheard of)!!! After several hours, two EKGs, two rounds of blood work, and two bags of I.V. fluids, the diagnosis was dehydration, which causes dizziness, etc. by causing blood pressure to drop very low. He’s fine now, but I want to remind everyone to please drink plenty of water, we tend to forget that when the weather cools off. And coffee and beer don’t count—they actually contribute to dehydration! So everyone have a great weekend and please stay hydrated! ; )
Natasha is armed to the teeth! And those are some (proportionately) large teeth to be armed to!
OT: There’s no trying to reason with hurricane season. Just check any weather report.
Happy Gotchaversary pretty little girl.
Oh, and gotta love those robber mice! Teamwork rules!
Love love LOVE Agnes’ reporter outfit! So professional! So SERIOUS! ;-)
Ok, survived a day long blackout yesterday to discover Sophie is making Tommy go undercover? I’ll have to check out yesterday’s strip, but right now she looks like a coward to me. At least Tommy has Natasha as his muscle.
this is the first time I’ve actually been able to put names to Robber Mice!
“Battle Mice! … ASSSEMBLLLLLE !!!”
And in other annoying raccoon news, I’m getting ready to put Flaming Squirrel Sauce (hot pepper oil) on my bird seed to stop the annoying little beasts from destroying my new feeders. (I’m surrounded by woods with plenty of food plus a neighbor who feeds everything feral so they are doing this for the heck of it, not from hunger.)
Natasha is my spirit animal!
Actually, Trevor might be good to have with them.
I’m SO GLAD to see the Robber Mice getting more action time!
I’m so excited to see what’s going to happen!! Thank you Georgia for this comic. I love it so much!
Hi everyone!! The Man is running a live charity event for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation this weekend! He and friends play horror and Halloween video games for three days straight! (Kinda like a telethon) I have donated some prizes for folks who donate to win, (including signed copies of ‘Lupin Leaps In’ and original artwork!) you can watch it here: http://nightmarathon.net/ (Sit it out if you scare easily, some of the games can be spooky!)
Tommy is just soooo happy about this! As are the robber mice (especially Natasha), of course. But I wonder, as much as he missed his Woman, if Tommy misses the adventurous life he led once upon a time?
If you can’t donate, even just watching or sharing the event helps so much! The more eyes we can get on the event, hopefully the more funds we can raise for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation! This event means a lot personally to the Man, he works on it and organizes this year round. <3 A lot goes into planning, practicing the games, and scheduling to make the next three days happen!
Sophie has organizational skills.
I’m beginning to feel sorry for the raccoons.
Now that I have seen more of the plan, I think it might just work.
Have the Robber Mice been disguised as raccoons all along?
I’m not sure what they hope to accomplish. Obviously the raccoons don’t have Goldie’s people stashed away somewhere. They need to find Goldie a new and better home (in the big pink house). What in heck is going on with auto correct!? It changed “new and” to “headband”.
How could anyone not like this. Fun, fun strip. :) So much fun detail. !
I always enjoy seeing the phrase lend a paw in this strip. Makes me smile every time.
Though I’d share this: "Because of their intelligence and nimble forelimbs, even inexperienced raccoons are easily capable of unscrewing jars, uncorking bottles and opening door latches, with more experienced specimens having been recorded to open door knobs. In a study by the ethologist H. B. Davis in 1908, raccoons were able to open 11 of 13 complex locks in fewer than 10 tries and had no problems repeating the action when the locks were rearranged or turned upside down. Davis concluded they understood the abstract principles of the locking mechanisms and their learning speed was equivalent to that of rhesus macaques.
Our agents will need their wits about them…
