No eating plastic!
But . . . it looks so tasty . . . maybe just once?
I guess we should consider ourselves warned, then! (Works for me – I’d prefer not to have anything spider-shaped in my home.)
Lupin is a symphony of pink today … tiny pink nose, huge pink tongue, and magnificent toe beans!!
Omc. Cats, dogs, babies and things that should not go in mouths. Poor Lupin I’m afraid that plastic spider might get stuck somewhere in him.
The cat of adventure is apparently not also the cat of common sense…
This would be the time for Goldie to save Lupin’s life by jumping up and smacking the spider from his grasp…
Lupin’s could be right about the tastiness of spiders … One of my favorite sushi is the Spider Roll: a tempura-fried soft shell crab, rolled in rice and seaweed, with the legs sticking out in all directions …
The Woman should not have said that. It gave him ideas. Now he is heading for a grim demise.
The Woman’s talking to Lupin here.
Oh the Cat of Adventure has an adventurous palate! But will his stomach stomach it??!!
A Cat must chomp things of doom.
Lupin is living life like there’s no tomorrow!
They are hard. I was thinking that they were rubbery. Nope to hard plastic spiders for cats to use as toys!
love Elvis’ ears in panel 2
The authorities swooped in to stop the taste testing of, The North American Plastic Halloween Spider, we at BCN are not sure how we feel about this…
Elvis senses a conspiracy. Will an investigative report follow? With charts.
A cat’s got to do what a cat’s got to do.
No, Woman. Don’t challenge him!
Last panel — Down the hatch!!
Lupin: Must…emergency vet!…on Holiday…and/or weekend night!
“Eat it! Eat it! Eat it!”
Lupin, why did you swallow the spider?
To catch the fly!
Kamikaze Lupin diving in where mere mortal cats fear to tread…plus toe-beans.
That’s exactly how we feel about our pets sometimes!
Pure glee on Lupin’s face! So good to see him happy and adventurous again!
So funny, so true lol!
OK, Woman. You reach into that gob and snatch the bauble! :-p
I’m gonna quote Lupin on that
Meanwhile, the same problem is cropping up among the aliens: https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/84193114_2670035636414416_1221972376724439040_n.jpg?nc_cat=1&nc_ohc=xxM7YX7Ev2UAX8mRP58&ncht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=47f751a2ed1661c554d35fef26957bff&oe=5E92A612
If he’s going to open his mouth that wide he ought to audition for “Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol” and sing “We’re Despicable”.
Yesterday, I spoke of a cat my family used to have that loved to play with this plastic spider rings. Her trying to eat them was never a problem, though.
“I Double-DOG-DARE you!!” …
Wait! … Oh, right. … There isn’t a ‘BDN’! :)
Human logic versus cat logic:
“If you swallow that thing, you will die.”
“There’s only one way to know for sure.”
My grandmother’s dog required surgery on two or three different occasions to remove inedible objects he had swallowed.
That’s a problem for Future Lupin!
“Will you please just try to live for once!” is the epitome of my friend’s life with two cats with sensitive tummies. =)
This is Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day.
Robin was right all along: we’re doomed.
BWAHAHAHAHA! Oh, Lupin! You remind me so much of my late Sammy. She didn’t die from swallowing a spider, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. She was always willing to eat anything at all.
Lupin certainly is committed to the cat scientific method.
Woman, hearing yourself say those or similar words are how you know your metamorphosis is complete and despite your best intentions, you have now Officially Become Your Parent.
The Woman’s last line reminds me of Alan Alda’s ‘Hawkeye Pierce’ on M*A*S*H shouting: “Live, D**N you! LIVE!!” :)
Yay!! I can be Ladykat if I use my phone.
Lupin, if you continue, you will have a session with the V-E-T!!! If that happens, the Man and Woman will be very upset with you.
No worries, Mom, I have nine lives! Of course there may be some multi-thousand dollar trips the the emergency animal clinic in there, but I’m SO worth it!
Plastic or not, you shouldn’t be eating those disgusting creatures nonetheless!
…"if you swallow that thing, you will die. (if you generate another emergency vet bill, I will kill you myself…)"
A friend’s dog had to have surgery to remove a swallowed earring, but it was his lucky day—in the course of the surgery, a cancer was discovered and removed, which bought him a few more good years.
There goes one brave cat.
Kitty beans! <3 <3 <3
The problem with indoor-only cats is many of them have the common sense of a particularly stupid toddler. Just, no, Lupin. Just no!
Emergency surgery will take care of that, no problem.
The adventure never stops with Lupin.
I keep wondering why the Woman yells at Lupin. She knows, better than anyone, that he’s entirely deaf.
My granddaughters gave me a spider ring last Halloween. It has a stick on “jewel” stuck on it. I keep it in my nightstand drawer. It fits my pinky.
I had a cat who swallowed a large screw. The top was almost 3/4" in diameter plus the screw extension that was over 1/4" long. How he swallowed it without choking I’ll never know. I found out when he stopped eating and I took him to the Vet. After the xray showed the screw in his stomach, they operated and the screw was so deteriorated from the stomach acid. It must have been in there quite a while. I don’t know how he got through it.
Lupin’s grin of unbridled joy is priceless. It says it all! But I must agree with the Woman and censure our dear Cat of Adventure: “Would you please just try to live for once?!” Ah but you could say he IS living albeit on the edge. ;p
My three kittehs have instructed me to tell you that they have never, ever eaten a toy…my dog, on the other hand, is pleading the 5th.
“Stop trying to eat things that can kill you” is a thing I say a lot to my cat, Jack.
This is the cat who munches on packing tape and slurps up sewing needles…
This is funny! And True! Oh, to know the joys of owning a cat. How many items I’ve successfully stopped them from swallowing. And they do fight you. I had a cat with pica that loved plastic — that was a challenge.
