Puck with the gentle approach for the win! (Hopefully Lupin is still too dizzy to come over and spoil it right now.)
Pucky the robo-vac whisperer.
Puck, the vacuum whisperer
Panel 3 looks like a shark.
Puck is the fuzzy, living embodiment of an actual marshmallow and I love him.
Heh… I like the whickering-like sound in the third panel. X3 Emphasizes the horse-ness, along with the oats.
As we guessed, Puck’s kindness strikes again.
Puck could tame anything with his calm, friendly approach.
OT: Re Personal Loss
Everyone’s friends with Puck. Even if they can’t all lie next to him.
Puck just tamed the wild stallion, like Alexander the Great did to the horse Bucephalus. Not with the whip, but with understanding.
The great horse was afraid of his own shadow. Alexander noticed this, and kept his attention on Alexander, himself, until he calmed down. The trust they built would last until they conquered the world, and made an empire together.
Puck has that quality. He builds trust, empathy, and understanding. We need more Puck in this world.
Georgia really does a spectacular job bringing vacume cleaners to life. This story just like the great momma vacume story three years ago, is brilliant. And I love the horse motif.
Puck, the Tortimer whisperer.
beep…? Adorable! And Pucky hugs it!
I’m guessing those oats aren’t wild :)
panel 4: Puck, the ultimate love-bug. squeeeeeeeeee! (quietly, so as not to alarm Tortie…)
And in the end, Tortimer purrs.
I lost it on the ‘have some oats?’ panel. I have no idea why.
Pucky, the vacuum whisperer.
I think everyone needs a friend like Puck.
Pucky’s gentle soul….
The Beatles: Here Comes the Sun
Little vacuum, Elvis insults you and Lupin tries to ride you
Little vacuum, you’ve had a long, frustrating day,
Here comes someone, do do do do
Here comes someone who can make it all right!
Little vacuum, please know that we all love you
Little vacuum, there’s some lovely things to vacuum up
Here comes someone who helps make it all right!
Here’s someone, here they come
Little vacuum, you’re doing a great job of cleaning
Little vacuum, they’ll all accept you very soon
Here comes someone, do do do do,
Here comes someone who’ll show you its alright!
Dignity. All creatures (and vacuums) deserve some level of dignity, a concept our Pucky seems to understand well. You may disagree on the most fundamental level with someone or some creature, but grant them the dignity they deserve.
Pucky leaves peace wherever he goes.
Bronco Duster Buster!
Pucky knows how to soothe and befriend all vacuums! Such a gentle, kind cat!
Puck the vacuum whisperer.
what the world needs now is more PUCKY !
Why would oats make it happy? Because scattering them around makes a mess vacuums have to CLEAN messes.
Aww! Just the gentle balm my heart needed today.
Oh Puck you are a sweetie!!
It’s not exactly Breaking Cat News, but I just LOVE Pucky!
But, what is Puck feeding the vacuum? is it kibble the cats don’t want to eat? or the broken bits of something Lupin broke while riding Tortimer?
Rosie the Robot had her cantankerous moments … Until she realized just how much The Jetsons loved her!! … “BEEP – BEEP !!” … :)
Not sure we can go much further with this theme. (Needs more cats.)
I can’t wait to see Lupin’s rage when Tortimer glides around, with Puck perched easily atop him . . . maybe waving like a pageant queen to the adoring masses! =)
Puck the Peacemaker has the skills to soothe the raging beaste.
O.T. Robber mice back story. Here’s part of a post from Georgia on facebook yesterday, "There is a whole backstory to this. I keep hoping to maybe break it out some Halloween, perhaps this will be the year! Or maybe in a future book at least… It tells of with how Natasha originally escaped from Grimtech, the science labs in the town, with the help of local wild mouse Alice. (You’ve seen Grimtech. It’s featured in the upper right corner of the town in the August 4, 2019 strip for anyone who enjoys hunting down previously unknown details! https://www.gocomics.com/breaking-cat-news/2019/08/04 ) I wrote many strips around 2017 for an short extra side comic, but then decided to hold onto the story in case Burt ever tapped into Grimtech’s old security footage. Every character in BCN has a long and elaborate backstory. While I may never have a chance to share them all, it helps me to know when I am writing who everyone is, who they were before BCN, who they are in and out of the CN news studio, etc.
wowza! puck is a.. a.. still working on the speedy robot thing name.. whisperer!
A little oats in the feed bag should satisfy the little horse, I mean robot.
What would the world do without Puck?
Those better not be real oats.
How thoughtful of Puck to feed him.
Awww, Puck is a Roomba whisperer
Maybe Tortimer is a direct descendant of the “automatic sweeper” that appeared in several Looney Tunes—the robot that would roll out of its closet every time some debris landed on the floor, sweep the stuff up into its attached dustpan, rush to the trash can for disposal, then return to the closet. There was one ‘toon where the sweeper was so overworked and aggravated that it emerged from the closet wearing a coat and hat, slapped an “I QUIT” sign on the door, and rolled out of the house, suitcase in hand. Hopefully Puck’s kindness will prevent Tortimer from doing the same!
Flamis: and thats why roombas are like cows. flamis: now why kiwi’s and kakapos are great friends. charmol: dude, those walking cat treats? flamis: >:< charmol: whaaat? flamis: now listen here you twerking fire-
Puck has learned about operant conditioning.
The vacuum in Drabble got to go for a walk outside today: https://www.gocomics.com/drabble/2021/06/11
Puck is: The Vac Whisperer!
The care Pucky is showing Tortimer is so lovely. I predict a long and rewarding friendship.
Puck is a real sweetheart.
Are those “wild” oats, by chance?
I was hoping to see Lupin in his jams trying to surf on Tortimor to the song Wipe Out!
Pucky, ‘Vacuum Whisperer’
Pucky to the rescue!
