HAPPY MEW YEAR!!!
All excellent resolutions!
Clearly Georgia’s New Year’s resolution is to draw more gratuitous toebeans!
Happy new year, Gocomics!
My resolution is to forgive the neighbors who are making truly unnecessary amounts of noise and scaring my cats. It may in fact take all year to achieve, wish me luck.
I am both Elvis and Goldie this year.
Happy New Year everyone!
Gah! I can’t count how kitties they have now. Someone help me, please!
Gerry Goffin and Michael Masser: Do You Know Where You’re Going To?
Do you know where you’re going to?
Have you decided the things that you’re gonna do?
What are you gonna do?
Do you know?
Are you gonna eat the Big Red Couch?
Are you gonna run and climb and never slouch?
Are you gonna just hang out?
A new year has begun,
A time for new adventures and having fun,
The ball has dropped again, and you can see,
The year is loaded with challenges and opportunities!
It’s alright to just nap
Or fight for the Humans’ lap,
Climbing to the top of the fridge
The challenge it can be,
Adding to your workout is a lofty goal as you can see!
Happy New Year to all my Mega-Orb family! May 2023 be a better year for us all, with good health, good friends, and good fortune! Love you all! ♥
I like that Ora Zella’s resolution is ambitious, yet also realistic. One bite at a time is the only way to eat a couch.♥
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO GEORGIA, HER FAMILY AND ALL YOU BEAUTIFUL BCN READERS! May this be the best year yet.
Happy New Year Sunday Funday
I need a laundry basket big enough for me to sleep in.
Elvis is fulfilling his resolution already!
If ya want it eat the couch
But save some stuffing in a pouch
For next Thanksgiving dinner’s turkey
And don’t try a bite even if it sounds quirky
Of the spring core or your theeth go “ouch”
My resolution is to ‘stop and smell the flowers’, do not little things get to me. It is easy to handle the big things, it is not as easy to handle the little nagging, annoying things or people. It is not worth the effort or sleepless nights. I will not let (fill in the blank) get to me. I will not allow (fill in the blank) have control over me. I feel so much better already.Happy, healthy, enjoyable new year to all. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments, shared experiences and stories. I have learned so much about cats from you.
Happy New Year Grampa Elvis.
On the board in the break room, we write up polls and questions just for fun. The current one is about New Year’s resolutions. This time I was the first to answer, and I wrote that I will learn to finish a book before starting a new one. Later on our branch manager said to me, “You work in a library, you should be reading three books!”
Elvis’s morning face! A triple shot of RTB! And great resolutions.
All New Year resolutions are doomed to be forgotten, usually in a matter of days. Perhaps Elvis will show an exception to this rule.
Somehow, I believe Ora’s promise…

Big Dreams, Ora! But try scratching the Big Red Couch…that’s how my two cats destroyed my office chair! They both started, in kittenhood! Happy Mew Year, everyone!
Godt nytt år!
We had fancy crackers, cheese, Martinelli’s sparkling cider, eggnog liqueur, and a quiet night. The cats were mellow.
Happy New Year to the Orb.
HAPPY MEW YEAR, friends.
Aim high, young Iggy!
I want to know all about the birds Pucky. Especially ones wearing hats.
Aloha and Hauoli Makahiki Hou to Georgia and her family and the BCN crew, and of course to all the members of the Orb! Here’s to a healthy and peaceful 2023 to everyone!
Elvis asleep with his paws crossed & his glasses still on…awwwwwsum ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Today is the first day of a brand New Year. Here’s hoping it’s everything everyone wants and more. Shiny, bright, happy and full of wonder. Happy New Year, Orb!!
I wonder whose artwork that is on the fridge.
Pucky white floof patch x 2! ♥
Happy New Year’s to the entire Orb esp Georgia Dunn and family (Man, Boy and Girl). May it be blessed and as free from pain and problems and sadness as possible.
Wishing every Orbster at Breaking Cat News a Happy and Healthy New Year, full of love, boops and pets xo
happy new year,orb!
Happy New Year, Everyone!!!
Off-topic: So long and thanks to those who have been appreciative.
Over the last severaly years, I have spent a lot of time contributing humorous “riffs” on Georgia Dunn’s wonderful comic strip, cat stories with a little learned wisdom and the occasional simple opinion. I enjoyed doing so because it reminded me of the couple of years I was a professional comedy writer on a daily basis.
However – there is always an “However” – it’s just not fun anymore . The constant deluge of increasingly meaningless Notifications is taking up a lot of time. Worse, is dealing with those few humorless people who take my comments as an invitiation to debate, call me names and practice “last wording”. I do not debate people with no apparent qualifications in an unmoderated forum.
There is a community here, which I hope continues to work for all of you. While I will continue to follow Georgia Dunn’s beautifully drawn and cunningly plotted comic strip, I will not be contributing further
Happy New Year!
Aw, grumpy Elvis. Him needs hims sleepy time.
Happy New Year to all members of the orb!
Happy New Year.
I am glad we got the resolutions as I mentioned yesterday. I am not sure I will adopt any for myself, although Elvis’ does have merit. I think my favorite detail is the bird’s hat in the second-to-last panel.
I gathered from yesterday’s comments that some kind of end of year thing has happened. I must remember to use the new year number going forward.
“Cats are delicate creatures and subject to a great many maladies, but I have never known one that suffers from insomnia.” I don’t remember who said it but i have alwavs loved the quote.
If there ever was a cat after my own heart. Well done, Elvis.
Am I the only one who noticed that Puck’s bird friend is wearing an adorable snow hat?
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Welcome one and all to the annual New Year welcome. I would like to extend a formal welcome to our new friends Ignatius Shipwright and Ora Zedd, as well as Iggy’s cousin Ziggy and the captain and crew of the good ship Red Planet Spider.
Ora: Thank you, Your Majesty. It is a great honor to be a part of your wonderful Royal Household.
Iggy: I am pleased to be able to sail with Fresh and Salty on the Nile. I’ve missed sailing ever since I had my accident.
Ziggy: In a way, the storm that brought the Red Planet Spider here was a blessing in disguise. I’ve met some lovely artisans, and was able to reconnect with my spider friends Arachna and Petros Parkhour.
Arachna: Pete and I have reconvened the Red Planet Spiders for a special New Year’s treat. Hit it!
Ziggy: Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Pete and Ari
And the Arachnids from Red!
He played as best he could
But then he realized
Guitars hadn’t been invented yet!
But he was really sharp
And he learned the harp!
He just found it one day
And began to play.
He tried to find out where the harp came from,
But no one ever told.
The Queen: And now we will get out the nap cushions. But first, Lupinium will conclude the banquet with a New Year’s Thwump!
If a man can eat an airplane, then a cat can eat a couch!
…as for me, I’ll stick to tacos.
Out of all the resolutions, Puck’s is my favorite.
Mother Nature had different plans for me last night. We walked out of the community room and almost fell on our butts. We got freezing rain. So I just went back to my apartment and relaxed. We did have a lot of fun at the party. Good snacks and a 6 handed Uno game
Elvis must be a senior cat.
The look on Elvis’ face, too precious for words. And Ora Zella, trying to eat the sofa, “one bite at a time”, the “climbing of the fridge”. All so precious.
I just hung up my new year Breaking Cat News Calendar. A Cold January day, a pile of books, and Trevor with his tea and snack. Hermit, indeed.
Happy New Year to Georgia and family (furry and otherwise)!
Happy New Year to everyone!
I love every panel of this strip, but I especially adore the little bird with her cozy red hat.
Anyone know the type of bird?
Pretty sure Iggy will accomplish his resolution very soon!
Ora Zella, not so much.
And Lupin made two resolutions!
I like the kids’ art on the fridge, and the warm cap on the chickadee.
I think “eat this couch” is an admirable goal.
May 2023 be a better year for all of you, and may we always remember those 2022 took from us.
Happy New Year!!!
Making Near Year’s resolutions. Bah! I haven’t made one of those in over twenty years. In fact my last New Year’s resolution was to no longer make New Year’s resolutions. Easiest resolution to keep because it means not having to care about making them. Which one is most likely to break within a few weeks of making the things anyway.
Happy New Year! THank you for bringing me a bit of pleasure and amusement every day.
The fosters are all like “I’m going to scale the fridge and chew on the sofa! What? We have new homes now? Nooooooooooo!”
@Sue Ellen. After reading mistercatworks’ comment, I’m worried that my grumpy insistence on the original upset you. If so, I apologise.
Happy New Year from Colorado!
All happy resolutions for our pals.. I hope they all reach their goals. Except Lupin. He needs more sleep. Unless he’s finally evolved beyond sleep in which case their all doomed. But I especially hope the baby children eat that horse er couch and climb that mountain er fridge respectively.
The list on the fridge: I think that the first one is vanilla. Then bread, followed by apples. But I’m stumped by the last word. Any thoughts?
