    I’ve had my cats pull this trick on me when getting out of bed. It’s more fun for the cat when they attack bare feet!

    I have been ambushed from every angle including kamikaze attacks. I get a kick out of it.

    Maybe Hobbes is training Calvin to avoid the MUTB’s (monster’s under the bed) in future, a bit like Inspector Cleuseau and Kato in the Pink Panther movies…an alert Calvin is a safer Calvin

    << Yesterday, Hobbes said: Speaking of lame jokes about animals and food, what do you get if you cross a cornfield with a chipmunk? >>

    Answer: Alvin and cobs.

    When dealing with Calvin, I’ve learned that sometimes the only successful approach is to “out-Calvin” Calvin, by coming down to his level – or below it.

    Today, I’m well below Calvin’s level, still waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    Hmmm…… Let’s see….. Something that spends all of its time stalking and talking?

    Reminds me of that old tiger aphorism: “If you have too much to say, you will never capture prey.”

    What I’d like to know is, how do you cross a tiger with a mynah bird?

    Robert Ludlum’s character, Jason Bourne, would be proud of Calvin’s cunning in thwarting Hobbe’s evil scheme.

    I would have expected Calvin to be wiser, now, and to have yanked his sneaker back up by the lace, thus teasing Hobbes.

    “Alvin and cobs.” Sheesh!

    It’s not wise to cross a tiger… You’re liable to get a cross tiger. I wonder what Hobbes expects in his ‘stalking’.

    If Calvin were a cheetah instead of a cheater, he could run away from Hobbes. All you need is a ‘mynah’ change in pronunciation. Ask someone in central or eastern MA!

    Hobbes talks already, but that’s a mynah point, if not irrelevant. Speaking of birds, one good ‘tern’ deserves another.

    Does Hobbes like ‘sole’ food? So Calvin’s a cheater! We already knew he wasn’t a goody two-shoes. Hobbes probably thinks Calvin’s a heel.

    Very clever, Calvin. Only problem is, eventually you’re gonna have to leave that chair to go to the bathroom or eat dinner … and Hobbes will still be there, waiting for you to put your feet down! What will you do then???

    We acquired a stray Siamese Birman cat years ago (showed up on our doorstep and adopted us). I never had much use for cats prior to her. A personality that was second to none.

    Her favorite game was for me to drag a large diameter frayed rope through the house. She would find a place to hide when I got out of sight and ambush it when I came back around.

    She also would wake me up by gently kneeding on my chest with her claws at 2 or 3 in the morning. I would have to get up, go into the bathroom, and turn on the faucet to a small stream. She would jump up on the counter and lap a drink from the stream (even though her water bowl was full).

    She did not enjoy me reading the newspaper each morning in my easy chair. All of a sudden she would jump on my lap which would put a big bulge in the paper toward my face. After a belly rub and ear scratching, she would lay there quitely and let me finish.

    Found her one morning passed away behind the TV set. She was quite a character and had owned us for 10 years. I was her most favorite person in the whole wide world.

    I have loved Calvin and Hobbes since the first strip was put in the Philadelphia Inquirer and I have my own private collection of my favorite strips, laminated and everything. If I need a good laugh I just defer to them and its on. I love to make people laugh and you make me laugh. Thank you, Mr. Watterson for everything you do, and please dont ever stop.

    I gotta protest here, Hobbesey Wobbesey …

    << Yesterday, Hobbes said: Speaking of lame jokes about animals and food, what do you get if you cross a cornfield with a chipmunk? >>

    Answer: Alvin and cobs.

    Respectively, it would be “cobs” and “Alvin”. I would’ve gotten it, dyslexia notwithstanding …

    Sorry FerBurger. I switched the order on purpose to make it more difficult. We tigers can be very deceptive at times. For example, sometimes hiding under the furniture….
