Neither the first nor the last.
Well, I didn’t expect that . . . I think this ride is a bucking bronco!
The robot won’t give up without a fight. Or least a good spin!
Ride that whirling bull robot, Lupin! Robot wants Lupin OFF! Looks just like a rodeo bull spinning in crazy circles! Elvis’s deadpan expression is perfect!
Is this the latest generation of robot vacuums – the one with the “eject passenger” capability?
This just in: Elvis is totally not enjoying this. (/sarcasm)
♬We’re on carousel, a crazy carousel, and now we go around again♬
I hope the little robot can clean up cat barf.
I hope this was before breakfast.
I don’t think the robot vacuum wants to be ridden. Of course it might feel like it is under attack and needs to protect itself.
RSoRTB!! Also, BoCH…followed immediately by front of cat head, back of cat head, front of cat head, …as the whirling continues.
OK so I was wrong. I said “aaaaaaaaaah!” Not “aurrrrhggghhhh!”
Zedd with Foxes: Clarity
Fast ride on a robot vac as a kitty leaps right in
Hold on as the robot vac takes the kitty for a spin
Hold on for a bumpy ride as in circles they both go!
Did Lupin make a big mistake? Inquiring minds want to know!
’Cause this is an adventure that I knew I had to take!
Riding around the room, who will win? We just don’t know!
If riding a vac’s insanity, why is it so much fun?
If riding a vac’s not meant to be, will we soon be done?
Ride on through whole first floor and refuse to let it end!
Spinning and dizzifying, it’s still lots of fun, my friend!
Don’t quit while the vac’s still running, ’cause I know I have to win!
We know all this crazy spinning means I’ll just do it again!
Let the rodeo begin!
In the last panel, I hear Elvis in a dead pan, here-he-goes-again kind of voice. Because Lupin’s ride was totally predictable.
RIDE ’EM ROBOT VAC-CAT!!!
Could Lupin possibly be just a teensy, weensy, bit doomed?
So, that robot bullvac, spun Lupin with all it’s robot might…but Lupin held strong. And, that’s how the legend of, The Toe Bean Kid, was born. I reckon he still a ridin’! ( sound of a spittoon, being hit!)
He’s being shaken, not stirred.
If only he’d go after the mice like that and pounce upon them and eats them.
OT Just to say, the June page of the calendar is fantastic. Puck is so sweet (I think Elvis must be self-care-ing in a cupboard, away from other beings).
You only have to stay on for eight seconds, Lupin!
“Lupin’s Made a Mistake” sounds like a good title for the next book!
Elvis is the epitome of the impartial reporter.

The talent is brilliant here to be able to show Lupin in all his spinny glory!
Well if you were an innocent little Ro Voom! just going along and minding your own business as you sucked up loads of cat hair from the carpet then suddenly you were jumped and attacked by an unknown, screaming assailant, you’d go into a death spin too.

Robot rodeo…ye ha!
Where’s he at? (8X)
If you wanna go and take a ride with me
Just free-wheelin on a rug with a bot, wheee!
Oh, why do I live this way? (Hey, must be the funnies!)
If you wanna go and spin ’round with me
Hangin’ on real tight, gettin’ all dizzy
Oh, why must I feel this way? (Hey, must be the funnies!)
Lupin, I like the way you ride with flair
And I like those business clothes you wear
I like the way you live without a care
And I can see you movin’ way over there
Yeah, you had to go and take a shot (crazy)
Free-wheelin with a li’l robot (OMC)
Oh, why do you live this way? (Hey, must be the funnies!)
If you wanna go and spin ’round like that
Just because you’re an adventure cat
Oh, why must you act this way? (Hey, not just the funnies!)

Georgia’s single stroke or two bringing anthropomorphized appliances to life is nothing short of artistic genius. I go back to the original “vacuum war” series often just to admire the pen work.
A mistake? Hardly.
A well-thought-out, perfectly executed plan…
I love the Cylon-esque rendering of the Ro-Vac’s eye in panel 2! (“By your command!”)
Pretty much saw this one coming, didn’t we? I’m not sure whether to cheer for Lupin or the robovac, so I’ll just pop some corn and enjoy the show!
Not the most effective spin doctor.
Well, Lupin, you’ve done it again! Love Elvis’ deadpan expression in the last panel!
No mistake. Lupin just wanted to take the robot for a spin.
Performed by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson: Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys
Lupin you just gotta love and he’s harder to keep,
He’d rather run through the house and ride on the vac than sleep
Floppy brown hat and brown suit and tie
And each night begins a new day
If you don’t understand him, he really don’t care
He’ll prob’ly just ride anyway!
Mamas, don’t let your kittens grow up to be cowcats
Don’t let ’em cat the news desk or search out a story
Let ’em take naps and eat kibble and such
Mamas don’t let your kittens grow up to be cowcats
‘Cos they’ll run through the home and you can’t leave ’em alone
But still you just gotta love!
Again? :D Who didn’t see that coming?
One of many mistakes no doubt.
Do those vacs come in a heavy duty GT version?
Dizzy. I’m so dizzy, my head is spinning.Like a whirlpool it never ends.And it’s you, ‘bot, making it spin.You’re making me dizzy.(With apologies to Tommy Roe).
You got this, cowboy! They don’t call you the cat of adventure for nothing!
Love the robot’s expression in panel 2 and his, its, reaction in trying to get Lupin off.
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’! – Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’!
Keep movin’, movin’, movin’! Though they’re disapprovin’!
Keep them Roombas movin’!
RAWHIDE !!! … :)
Aaaaand… EPIC =HORKAGE= in 3…2…1…
In other news, water is also wet.
I thought for sure Goldie was going to be the first one to ride the vacuum. Although Lupin is the Cat of Adventure, I would have thought his over-sensitivity to vibrations would have placed him third on the list. Elvis would have been last because riding a robot vacuum would be undignified.
On another subject, Non Sequitur today has a comic that shows BCN worst nightmare!https://www.gocomics.com/nonsequitur/2021/06/02?ct=v&cti=864764
When making a mistake never involve a robot like that one also look around to see if any cat named Elvis is filming before doing something like an mistake :>
roomba oz an bull
I’ll bet that Nana got them an industrial robotic vacuum, and it holds up to Kitty Cargo.
I was looking at a robo-vac on Amazon, and I went to the Customer Questions. First one (honest) was, “How many cats will fit on it?” Someone immediately answered with technical details about how to maximize cat capacity. Really.
the robot apocalypse is starting with a cat takeover
I predict that Lupin will crash into the table and it rains bacon.
This reminds me of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes comic where Calvin puts himself in the toilet and flushes.

How is Lupin at spin recovery?
Mistakes were made. Choosing to LIVE wasn’t one of them. Yee that Haw Lupin!
What a dizzy kitty!
Elvis is the master of understatement.
Yikes! and away!
Eight seconds, Lupin!
Somehow I suspected that this might happen.
And this is why they can’t have nice things.
Whoa, whoa is right. Pull a little back on the reins Lupin. Gently though, IF you know what that word means.
The kitty Waltzer!!! fun fun fun even if he is a bit dizzy now!!!
Hang on for dear life, Lupin!
Love the look on the vacuum’s face plate!
Is that really news though, Lupin makes entertaining mistakes, its his best quality
Lol, I like the exclamation point over the roomba
I really like the sarcastic commentary from elvis.
