What do cats care about snow?
Okay Elvis, I’ll ask: “What’s the source of the snow?”
Elvis is channeling his inner Andy Rooney here . . .
Elvis and his clicky pen. Sounds like a story all on its own.
he needs a white board….. connecting the conspiracy! something like, and just who is this Jack Frost character?!?!?! also, love Lupin feeding the furry fury!
Clicky pen? I thought Elvis would use a fountain pen.
Elvis. The J. Jonah Jameson of Cats.
Hard to take pink Lupin seriously. Reminds me of when I was rear ended on Halloween and I was in a butterfly costume.
All that righteous indignation!!!
I am SO gonna miss pink Lupin, strawberry feline. it is just so Lupin!
Just come down here to the tropics Elvis. Ain’t no snow ever.
Don’t worry Elvis. Climate change will take care of the snow soon enough.
I don’t think it’s snowed here, Elvis. Of course, the summer is hot enough to cook your paws.
::squints:: Is there a sighting of RTB in Panel 2?
Lupin continues to shout- ERASE THE CLOUDS, WITH A SKYSCRAPER!! Elvis-…Lupin…
I can’t tell if Lupin is just messing with him or is GENUINELY serious about shutting down the sky. Also Bea for the love of cat get in there and stop your dad. I normally wouldn’t ask that of a kitten but I assume part of her offical factchecker job description is “Stop Elvis. You’ll know when”
I think this is the first time we’ve seen more than just the top of the anchor desk chair. Retro office chair – nice.

the lil’ fist slam is perfection.
Sometimes preparing for a storm will actually prevent the storm, or cause the storm to change in some way. When the remnants of Hurricane Ike were headed this way, the weather guys were predicting torrential rain, so I spent the day before clearing out the gutters. Instead, we got absolutely no rain but tropical storm force sustained winds and hurricane force wind gusts. I’ve I’d gone to the store and stocked up on not perishables that could be eaten without cooking, we would probably have gotten the torrential rain.
I’m with Elvis!!
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Maat-Tilda: So you’ll take part in our fashion show, Elvis?
Elvis-Anum: Of course. Do you have a particular style in mind?
Tillie: Since you and Iggy were both once sefarers, Soph, Adobe, and I were thinking of a nautical theme.
Elvis: That sounds lovely. Maybe highlighting adventure and peril.
Soph: That can be part of it. We were also thinking about how the sea brings us great bounty.
Adobe Style: We plan to have fashions depicting both the coast, and the deep blue sea.
Tillie: And we’re going to use a fabric made from seaweed from the frozen north* and other plants.
Elvis: But we’re far away from the frozen north. How did you manage to obtain this fabric?
The Royal Procurers: We’ll never tell!
*For more information, Google SeaCell. They will tell.
But Elvis, why do you care? As an indoor only cat, you don’t have to go out in it.
We older types, Elvis, Scaeva, Robin, or myself.., want order in an increasingly chaotic world. Whether it’s kids on our lawn, no bog roll in the dunny, or snow, thinking it can just show up whenever it wants to. We want some peace and quiet, dagnabbit.
I salute you, Elvis! Demand answers; put your paw down. Find out who is in charge of snow and put a stop to it once and for all!
Lupin is on Elvis’ side for once, and Elvis does not appreciate it. Their combined effort could be powerful, and I am eager to see what measures exactly they take to stop snow. Perhaps it will involve the ceiling cats.
… When troubles call
And you’re sick of it all
There’s a lot to be done
To stop your downfall
… Once there was an angry bold cat
Thought he’d pen a whole hatin’ rant
People should make those clouds scram
And Lupink’s in on that slam
… ’Cause he had high hopes
He had high hopes
He had high stop flakes’ fly
In the sky hopes
So any time you’re feelin’ bad
‘Stead of feelin’ sad
Just remember that rant
… Oops, there goes a loud “shut down the sky” chant
Oops, there goes a “people must stop snow” rant
Oops, there goes a wish they hope Cat will grant now
- Sammy Cahn – High Hopes
Pink Lupin cannot hide in the snow as well.
I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble. Marie sent me this email a few minutes ago:
“…you locked your poor Holmes in the closet this morning! He is very upset with you. The fact that he went in the closet himself and thus was locked in is not the point! The point is that you locked him in, and now he’s traumatized. When I went up to get dressed, he was sitting on the food bin, meowing sadly. He’s now out and telling the other cats about his “adventure/mistreatment.”"
Ignoring the issue of how a consulting cat detective can get himself locked in a closet, the real problem is, do I dare go home? I think Hamilton shoved him into the closet as the door was closing, and I am sure I am not to blame here. However, they say a good defense is a good offense. Therefore, I need a cat attorney to plead my case. Does anyone know a good cat Barrister that works for kibble or tuna vouchers? Please send all referrals.
In the meantime, I will be on the lam somewhere in the wilds of Australia. If they find me there, New Zealand is another option. I will resurface occasionally and send you all a coded message. They are calling my flight, ave.
I think my young cat feels the same!!
In the dictionary if you look up the term Drama Queen it says See Elvis at BCN.
He is, by pointing out how silly everything in your statement was, Elvis. :P
People are doing far, far too much to stop snow, Elvis. You really don’t want to know how much humans are doing to mess that up.

I love the little fist slam and the clicky pen! Where has Lupin been that he got such a nice tan?
Elvis, that attitude never solved any problem, especially when dealing with Mother Nature. She needs to be placated, not yelled at.
First tiny hiss now little fist slam:)
Sadly, people are doing way too much to stop the snow. And it seems to be working, at least around here. We’ve only gotten a total of about 8” so far this season and way above normal temperatures (except for two days last week, when they were way below normal). Grass has still been green, trees have been budding, and pu$$y willows (I had to use the dollar signs because GoComics flagged the proper word) have been out since early January.
Elvis, schneit happens. (Yes, I know that’s the verb form.)
Being serious isn’t in his nature. Wreaking havoc, on the other hand…
I think this is the first time we’ve seen the back of the desk…
Clicky pen lol
we use trucks with scoops on them, we deliver saltiness to the streets to punish the snow for it’s evil desire to make us slip, we shovel it out of the way when it’s trying to block us from getting into or out of our homes.. other than getting a contract with the sun, there’s not a whole lot we can do from here.
Every one is picking on Elvis. Don’t forget, he’s had personal experience with snow, and lived to tell the tale, thanks to Tommy.
Huh…No poofy Elvis…
Elvis really needs to contact Dr. Scuttles about this. I am sure they could work together on this.
I know Dr. Scuttles is not a fan of BCN, but this may be something they could work on together, professionally that is.
It’s easy to be an optimist when you have rose-colored fur.
Light a fire, help global warming…
“It comes UP, Charlie Brown ! Snow comes UP from the ground and then the wind just blows it around !” -Lucy Van Pelt ca. 1956
Lupin gets to the root of the problem.
“Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me…"
SHUT UP, ELVIS!!! We need snow, it has quite a few uses. For one, it can raise the water table so we are less likely to suffer a drought in the spring and summer.
For another, WARMTH. Everyone complains about snow being cold. But snow is also an insulator that helps trap heat in. I remember building a snow fort as a teen and having a cave in it where it was five to ten degrees warmer in the snow cave than it was on top of the snow out in the open. Not to mention snow buid up against a building helps to lower heating bills as it’s yet another layer of insulation against the cold.
Snow drives ticks and termites deep into leaves or fallen tree trunks when it is deep. Learned that from an exterminator years ago at a DI competition we were both appraisers at. He was talkiiiing about how bad the tick and termite season was going to be because we hadn’t had a decent snow fall that winter. Someone asked him what snow had to do with it and he explained that when the snow is deep and stays on the ground for a long time the ticks bury themselves deep in the leaves of the forest and termites go deep into stumps. They don’t come out very early either.
O.T. Bob the Writing Cat would be proud of me—
give it 20 years, then I think we’ll have you covered elvis
How long is Lupin going to be pink? And did that really happen?
Why is lupin redish tan colored?
Asking for some orb vibes for my old man dog, Skyy…he’s had a rough few weeks, and now the vet thinks there’s a bowel blockage…could be something he ate or something worse, but exploratory laproscopies are no joke when you’re a 13 year old Siberian.
