I’m not sure what’s cuter: Lupin all curled up or Sophie and Goldie building the story up further in true, “Yes, and…!” style!
@sdjamieson and @kirbie1232, you called it!!!
I love how Sophie is really getting in to it, and socializing.
It’s the anti-Kryptonite.
A wrestling match when done right is an improv, made up on the fly by the participants and often adjusted based on the audience feedback.
As young Mr. Grace used to say, “you’ve all done very well!”
Sophie seizes the opportunity for a theatrical swoon! And it was time to move on in terms of the drama.
I love how Sophie has realized how much fun it is to play with the others!
It’s easier for Sophie to “let go” behind the facade of another character. And she’s learning to play well with others. A true breakthrough!
Frame of reference here: the Casket match from the 1994 Royal Rumble.
Sophie is reacting better to the theft of her amulet than Lupin reacted to the theft of his tape recorder!
Love how Georgia captures Sophie’s surprise in panel 3 and her sheer delight in panel 4 as she catches on to Goldie’s plot advancement!
Brilliant improv move on Goldie’s part and brilliant uptake by Sophie! And Lupin so cute curled up but looking a bit outclassed by the ladies.
Goldie and Sophie are playing their parts well.
Without her amulet, the Existential Dread is doomed.
Love how the Existential Bread’s ear is peeking out from her hat in panel 3!
As adorable as all the theater is — I really am loving all the improv! and Sophie’s breakthrough! — I have a hankering for a bit of tussle … maybe something involving tiny folding chairs …
And now she’s REALLY part of the family!
Oh my Cat! Georgia, I love you! :) So happy to see Sophie playing and loving it! And the look on Goldie’s face.. LOL!
Oh and did you see Goldie took the amulet without disturbing Sophie’s hat! :)
Panel 1: I want so much to cuddle Lupin! He’s so adorable in that cringe with his head the size of his body. Panel 3: my heart breaks for Sophie! Oh poor kitty, will you slink away and have no friends?Panel 4: you go, girl! Way to take Goldie’s plot twist, be a good sport, and use your fabulous imagination!
Someone needs to quickly sign to Lupin the changes in the plot.
BoCH – with hat!
Those are Sophie toe beans. Purple Sophie Toe Beans!
But how did Rowdy Goldie Pepper know that? My answer, she and the Existential Dread are sisters!
Even in defeat, Sophie is loving every minute of this – look at that smile!
I can’t wait to hear what Pretty Pucky and Good Cat Almighty have to say about this twist in the plot.
Maybe someone already commented on this, but I see that the ankh has little cat ears.
Alright – what is Rowdy Goldie Pepper going to do with The Dread’s power?
Poor Lupin, thoroughly cowed, in the first panel, and the interplay between Goldie and Sophie – all wonderful. Georgia, thank you for continuing to lift our hearts in these trying times!
Setting: Ancient Egypt, where cats are worshiped as gods
Royal Magician: You summoned me, oh Queen Catshepsut?
Her Majesty: Yes, Sophititi. I need a symbol of my power throughout the realm.
Sophititi: I will create for you an amulet, in the shape of the Cat Ankh.
Queen Catshepsut: Do that, and summon the Royal Cook to create for me a dish containing eggs, and other delicacies scrambled together and cooked as one.
Sophititi: At once, your majesty. You shall have your amulet and your omelette as you command.
E.D. is going to use her last secret power to get her amulet back: Charm +1000
[cheer! whistle! stomp!] Rowdy Goldie Pepper = The Existential Dreadnought [munching popcorn as fast as it pops]
OT – cuteness overload!
Besides all the puns elicited by the Existential Bread which were quite droll, I also loved how Sophie took Goldie’s lead and ran with it. Sophie is blossoming nicely.
ICYMI: A cheetah at the Smithsonian zoo gave birth to 4 cubs yesterday. Live cam:
I love how they chirp like little birds.
Oh, and my copy of Take It Away, Tommy! arrived yesterday. YAY!
Also, Goldie basically just saved Lupin from said amulet effects, so, you know…that’s gonna be a thing.
Cat curses – tin foiled again.

D & D and wrestling?
Sophie’s amulet looks like an ankh with cat ears.She was reading about Egyptian Cats before the match…is this her homage to Bastet?
I am so proud of Sophie – this is a true breakthrough for her!
I used to have fun watching pro wrestling, but the circuit was called Stampede Wrestling, run by Stu Hart. I never liked WWE.
Let’s hear it for Goldie!
Now Lupin will take the amulet and use it against Goldie. At that point Tusslemania will end as Goldie will switch over to Aegean-Persian tussleing.
I love Sophie’s smile as she says, “I grow weak without it.”
Today is Name Yourself Day—it must be intended as a benefit from those who have forgotten their name, or like master Butterbur, “only remember it because people shout it at you all day.”
Hello, my Self! What is our name?
If you don’t know, I certainly won’t tell you.
OT. Forgot to mention that yesterday was LucyLu’s 10th anniversary of me rescuing her…. She was spoiled rotten all day with treats and goodies.
The evil villain is looking surprisingly happy about the turn of events.
I wonder where she got the amulet. Maybe it was Ankhara?
Don’t grow to weak, La Damos Dragone (I hope I spelt that right) will swat (sorry wrestle) you silly.
I love how this was handled. Sophia has always wanted to play with the other cats, but thought she didn’t know “how”. And she thought her partial blindness and weak paws would make it impossible. The cats’ explanation told her that she had control — “you can just work that into your storyline, make it part of your character”. Not only did she not know their wrestling was theater (and therefore art), she didn’t know she was allowed to create her own character with traits that were on her terms. She can be who she is, or make up anything she wants, she doesn’t have to change a thing. And the way she whipped up that outfit and made up the Existential Dread, she must have had them in mind for a long time but not where/how to use them. Brilliant, Georgia.
