They do seem to be seasonal.
But… they put the leprechaun traps out each year…
I’m not surprised so close to St. Paddy’s Day! ☘ Better see if there’s some gold coins left behind back there somewheres. :D
It sounds as if Goldie has had some experience with leprechauns.
But are the leprechauns guarding a pot of gold?
They don’t bite. They actually pinch. Well, Happy Saint Patricks Week (to be early)!
Detective Goldie is on the case once again!
That’s what happens when you start pretending to be Irish. And once you’ve got those things in the place, you’re doomed.
Well, at least I enjoy the music.
Never heard of bitey leprechauns.
So, the children can talk with Goldie?
Goldie competing with Sophie for the Art prize…
Goldie has done a police artist sketch from the People Kittens’ description.
Its that time of the year! In a normal year the Hillsborough River would get a healthy does of green dye but this year the festivities will be muted for obvious reasons. In a normal year, Savannah GA is a great place to go as well(In my case if the 17th falls during spring break)! That leprechaun sure does look scary, great composite police sketch by Goldie! No wonder the Girl and the Boy are scared!
Lure them out with soda bread?
You sure it’s not just Elvis in a green suit?
My wife is a leprechaun*- she is not bitey
*we were discussing horoscopes with my mother, my mother asked my wife what her sign was. My wife, to whom English is not her first language, comes out with “I’m a Leprechaun! … no that’s not right”
(She’s a Capricorn)
When Irish eyes are smiling
sure it’s like a morn in spring
In the lilt of Irish laughter
you can hear the fairies sing
When Irish hearts are happy
all the world seems bright and gay
But when Irish fairies are bitey
sure they’ll steal your gold away
There’s fear in your eye
and I’m wondering why
that it ever should be there at all
With such power in Goldie
sure a creature so wee
will never be a worry at all
When your sweet lilting laughter’s
like some fairy song
and your eyes sparkle bright as can be
Oh then laugh all the while
and all other times smile
and then smile a smile for Goldie

Perhaps the smell of corned beef attracts them? Its not corn…it doesn’t look like beef, and my kids hate it. But I love making Hash our of the leftovers.
My beef brisket is corning away in the fridge, in anticipation of the 17th.
Love how Goldie jumps right in to this investigation – that police sketch has me worried! I’m going to wear my extra-thick anti-bitey leprechaun boots until this case gets cleared up.
Okay, guessing game time. What is under the sofa that is tiny and hairy and red and green and bitey. Now, Goldie’s drawing is from hearing the description so it’s guess work. Georgia is up to something. The only previously bitey creature was the cactus plant. Hmmm.
Bitey? Sounds more like a gremlin disguised as a leprechaun. They love to ruin the reputations of other cryptological creatures and are one of the major reasons we have cats
Ah yes, another holiday coming up that businesses will do their best to commercialize.
Well, why shouldn’t they? Good luck to them. But I still remember the bagel shop that put out a sign in early February to “order your green bagels now” for Saint Patrick’s Day. This led to some speculation on why they needed a month’s lead time to get the bagels green.
That was actually a pretty good bagel shop, but they’re out of business now.
The leprechauns refuse to share their Lucky Charms !! … :)
OT covid vaccine
Jameson or Bushmill’s, O Responsibly Adult Orbsters? ;-)
OT: Just my turn to complain about GoComics. They keep giving me notifications for Likes and Replies they’ve already notified me about. Also, since I’m here, I will whiney-baby about getting no new Likes and Replies, even though I totally realize that I have to write more comments if I want more Likes and Replies. (Now get off my lawn?)
Is this a new Bitey Enemy?
That’s almost as scary as the illustration of a leprechaun one of my teachers showed us from a book of Irish folklore she got in Ireland. His face was contorted with malice, he had huge bulging muscles, and carried an axe that was bigger than his head.
So what experience has Goldie had with leprechauns? Enquiring minds enquire.
Are leprechaun traps like Japanese beetle traps in that they trap what you’ve got but also end up luring more to you?
Why would leprechauns bite when they have shillelaghs? :)
Well…it is March.
They’re not being bitten; they’re being pinched. But with COVID, the leprechauns haven’t been able to get their usual manicures. The obvious solution is to start wearing green.

If once you pay the Fey-geld, you never get rid of the Fey.
I can’t believe not one person has mentioned Guinness, perhaps it’s not known about in the States?
The cats recognize leprechauns because around this time every year the people dress them up as leprechauns in order to lure the creatures out into the open.
Leave a saucer of whisky out. When it passes out dispose of it responsibly.
Re recent report from Ms Dunn about some newspapers dropping BCN, (insert unhappy cat face here), I wrote to my local newspaper’s editor expressing my love and support of BCN.
My house has a pair of “Lepracats” one black and one orange. Both like to nibble on my fingers. They haunt under the sofa too.
Maybe our Book Store Kitten might be able to find some info about catching these bitey creatures.
Leprechauns?! Why those good-for-nothing hoodlums.
Nope, something pretending to be leprechauns. Not that real leprechauns are like Lucky (or like Michael from The Smurfs).
Beatrix: Are leprechauns a problem in this house?
Elvis: They seem to be seasonal.
OMG my birthdays on st patricks day does that mean they will actually attack ME!
Yikes! It kind of looks like it’s beard has fangs!
OT my parent’s cat…
