Knocking things into the toilet is probably the safest way for cats to deal with a bee. It’ll get the People’s attention, and then the People will definitely notice the bee.
Puck’s display of power never gets old.
I So LOVE this story. My Nadia was a champion knocker-off of things. But the toilet was reserved for drowning her toy mice in! My current girls have never had to deal with a bee though. Brave Elvis will conquer the evil winged intruder!
Puck, swat it! Swat it now!
Is this an example of Bee Tricks—"cool stuff bees can do"? (Whatever you do Elvis, don’t wrinkle your nose. Bees only sting if they get pinched.)
The bee seems friendly enough. Just looking for some pollen, which it will not find on Elvis’ nose.
This is why you should keep the toilet lid down.
BEE there or BEE square!
I love Lupin’s tail twitching the whole time.
When Puck knocks everything into the toilet
As a display of power, glee!
Speaking with this deed of wisdom, get out, bee
And as a sign of cuteness
She is landing right on Elvis’ nose, see?
He’s squeaking words of inFURiation, let it, bee!
Let it, bee!, let it, bee!
Whisper words of facepalm, gotcha! Eeee!
(Let It Be / The Beatles)
The bee makes Elvis look like he has a mustache!
This is Breaking, Bee News! There’s a cat, on my back side!
I’d much rather have the Bee than Jules.
What this? The Babylon Bee News eh.
He gone? Then he soon bee with you Elvis.
I cat bee-leave this is going on.
A bee, eh. It means somewhere close there must be…. HONEEY!
Hit tha myoosic!
He tell me, “Don’t you ever come around here”
“Don’t wanna see bear face, you better disappear”
The fire’s in me eyes and me words is really clear
So bee it, just bee it
You better fly, you better buzz when you can
Me wanna eats your honey, don’t be macho bee
You wanna be tough, better flee when you can
So bee it, but you wanna be bad
Just bee it (bee it), bee it (bee it)
No one wants to bee defeated
Showin’ how buzzy and sting is your might
It do not matter who wrong or right
Just bee it (bee it)
Just bee it (bee it, uh)
Me out to get your honey leave while you can
Don’t wanna bee a boy, you wanna flee a bear?
You wanna stay alive, better buzz while you can
You has to show me that you really not scared
You playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
Me’ll kick you, then me’ll beat you
Then me’ll tell you it’s fair
So bee it, but you wanna bee bad
Just bee it (bee it)Just bee it (bee it)
Bee it… (bee it, bee it…)
It do not matter who wrong or right…
Just bee it (bee it), bee it (bee it)…
Poor Elvis getting his nose booped by a bee
Does that bee know the Jules, the July Bug?
OT: getting sniffed
Abba: Honey, Honey
Honey, honey, gather pollen, ah-hah!
Honey, honey, nectar callin’,. ah-hah!
I heard about you before
You want to make honey some more
But why are you flying here?
There’s no flowers!
Honey, honey, worker bees here, ah-hah
Not really clear why you’re in the bathroom!
Elvis is quite upset, Puck made sure everything is wet
The bathroom is not the place
Outside is your space!
Bee: I just want to find some flowers!
I want to get back to my home
So open a window and let me find my comb!
Elvis: Why are you landing on my nose?
Just find your way outside
Dealing with a bee is more than I can abide!
Honey, honey, here comes Woman, ah-hah!
Honey, honey hope the human doesn’t make it worse!
Well, she shoos our friend outdoors
I hope there aren’t any more
They can find all the pollen they want out there!
I have the perfect bee trap/bug trap. A clear, 4oz condiment cup and a large paint stock card. The cup goes gently over the bee, the card slips under the cup and the whole thing goes out the door to be retrieved at a later date. The bee flies happily off and I’m not stung because I am allergic and I also bee-lieve in live and let live. :)
Eddie : You know, you got to be careful of dead bees if you’re goin’ around barefooted, ’cause if you step on them they can sting you just as bad as if they was alive, especially if they was kind of mad when they got killed. I bet I been bit a hundred times that way.
Slim : You have? Why don’t you bite them back?
Eddie : That’s what Harry always says. But I ain’t got no stinger.
Okay, panel 4 just does not seem plausible. I must say I doubt the veracity of some of the reported facts in this story.
Secondly pet owners knows to keep the toilet seat down, with the exception when a cat or cats have been trained to use the toilet instead of a litter box, and there has been no evidence presented to support the idea that the BCN team has been trained to do so.
Elvis is occasionally a sunflower so it reasonable that the bee would like him.
Decades ago, I had long hair. One day a bee somehow got caught in my hair. Very weird experience as I kept trying to get it out without hurting it or startling it but alas, I scared it into stinging my scalp. Now that made shampooing my hair interesting for the next few days.
Be very, very careful Elvis. Puck’s display of power does not seem to have worked.
Basic news reporting!
We had a wasp in the apartment a few weeks ago. The cats took care of it.
In support of Elvis, we should all wear bumble bee mustaches!
I swear, when this was published the first time, there were two bees,
or maybe not two bees;
that is the question I am wondering about.
Careful lest the Bee and the June (July) Bug join forces! Both in their tiny flying helmets and goggles.
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Beatrixia: Are you coming to Thomios’ honey banquet, Elvis?
Elvis-Anum: Maybe. I still have all these scrolls to translate.
Bea: They’ll still be there when you get back. They’ve been around for centuries, after all.
Elvis: But we have centuries of wisdom here.
Enter Worker Bee Kira (Terpsichore)
Kira: Hi, Elvis. I heard you were bogged down with work. How about some special Xanadu Honey?
Elvis: All your honey is special.
Kira: Yes, but this was made with special Blossom of Blessing Honey.
Elvis: Does that mean I have to share it?
Kira: Of course. You can bring it to tonight’s banquet to share.
Elvis: Alright. I guess these scrolls can wait for another day.
Quick, Burt! Switch to some bee-roll footage!
“I’ve knocked everything into the toilet as a display of power” never ceases to get me especially since the line never quite fits what pucks become.
[Bee] I knew the day I found you
I wanna buzz around you
Now and forever, let it bee me
[Elvis] Don’t take this heck from no one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever, get bit from me
[Pucky] Each time we meet (shove)
I am without love
Knocking things from above
[Elvis] So, never land on my nose
That’s for sniffs, not repose
[Bee] Say that you’ll always let me be bee
And that you’ll always let me buzz free
- Pierre Delanoë / Gilbert Bécaud – Let It Be Me – Everly Brothers
What Elvis needs is Beeno …
Tee-hee. Elvis looks kinda silly with the bee on his nose.
Yet another favorite! (I wonder how Elvis reacted when he discovered where the bee had disappeared to?)
BBC News : Bathroom Bee Channel
The dog my family had when I was a kid managed to catch a bee in his mouth. My mom was a nurse and managed to extract the stinger. He avoided bees after that.
Elvis has a cute little bee-stash
Lets hope no bees were hurt in the drawing of this cartoon XXX
Buzz off little bee, but not little Bea from the bookstore.
Another Off-Topic post – this time with Akiro.
I made the “mistake” of opening a can of pineapple just a bit ago. The can has a pull-top, so you can imagine the immediate response, somewhere between this one:
and this one:
And with a side of Calvin and Hobbes – Akiro hit my leg at ramming speed!
They should call in the July Bug to negotiate with it!
Bees know how to boop?
I’m allergic to bees and wasps. If I get stung, I first get the stinger out, then ice the injury and get to the hospital. EpiPens are expensive and have a limited shelf life.
Maybe Elvis needs a bonnet
When I was in grade school, I was walking up the street to the school bus stop when a honey bee landed on my thumb. I stopped, afraid to move, and watched with fascination as she proceeded to lick a little pancake syrup from my thumb with its long tongue. Bees’ mouths open from side to side, vertically, unlike mammals.
OMG, look what just came in my email! https://tinyurl.com/mrk7f3wm How cool is this. If I still had a cat I would totally get this!
Careful, Puck, or all that power will go to your head.
Your technique of knocking everything into the toilet made me laugh, though. Fun.
Nice Mustache Elvis!
