    Oh no. Too many. Run Puck, run! Fly like the wind, you fool!Also, quick poll: how many of you have been here before BCN was made available for newspapers? I’m curious.

    It was online years ago. I went to her website and wrote her about how much I loved her work and her boys. Told her I had 3 Bengals that walked on leashes and she wrote me back! I was immediately smitten. My girl waits now across the Rainbow Bridge but the boys are rulers of all they survey. My kitties are adoptees. Their breeder had cancer had to get rid of his cats for chemo. I took his last 3 kittens. It has been wonderful.

    How did Georgia manage to pry Elvis out of the tree? Sassy climbs up the center and there’s no way to grab her without trashing everything. I only know she’s in there because the whole tree starts to quiver (with fear I think).

    Cue malicious sounds of tree branches being rubbed together.

    Trees cackling to Puck: “We’ll get you kitty! Just come outside and you are ours!”

    Tree tops suddenly begin swaying and twisting violently. Was it the wind … or something else?

    Not sure when I discovered BCN, but was drawn to the watercolor, unique view point, and charming story lines. It is the first thing read in the morning. It wakes me up with a good attitude. Miss the pre-newspaper format, but can always go back to reread and remind me of how wonderful the strip is.

    Whoops hit wrong place. Only have phone this last week to look at BCN. Won’t get Internet back until Fri. unless I go to the library or Starbucks. I haven’t been w/o Internet this long for years! So I read the strips and said ,“This woman understands Cats! These are based on real cats who behave like real cats! Aside from the mic’s, of course…” Been hooked ever since.

    There is unrest in the forest

    There is trouble with the trees

    For the maples want more sunlight

    And the oaks ignore their pleas

    The trouble with the maples

    And they’re quite convinced they’re right

    They say the oaks are just too lofty

    And they grab up all the light

    But the oaks can’t help their feelings

    If they like the way they’re made

    And they wonder why the maples

    Can’t be happy in their shade?

    There is trouble in the forest

    And the creatures all have fled

    As the maples scream ‘oppression!’

    And the oaks, just shake their heads

    So the maples formed a union

    And demanded equal rights

    ’The oaks are just too greedy

    We will make them give us light’

    Now there’s no more oak oppression

    For they passed a noble law

    And the trees are all kept equal

    By hatchet,Axe,And saw

    By the Tri-Gods to the North – Geddy Lee / Alex Lifeson / Neil Peart

    AKA – Rush

    I had to get up early this morning for a snack and lo and behold, the foundling had gotten into the tree and was about the same height as Elvis before I could extract him. And of course the other cats and the dogs woke up and everyone had to be fed and the doggies all needed walkies and I never got back to bed. Stupid tree. At least today is a day off and I might be able get in a nap or two and make a dent in my dvr. Stupid tree.

    His Majesty and Elvis are one in this, except I can’t get HM out of my parents’ tree. It’s his first Christmas tree and he has helped dad put it up and decorate from start to finish with minimal biting. He has only decided he doesn’t like a couple ornaments dad put on so far.

    PS His last name was Ivanovalich. Say it out loud for best effect.
