Kittens. No matter what you build for them, they are still, tiny, cute clothes-destroyers.
one of these days, Leslie’s heart will open up to the cats
And Les would be devastated – crushed – if Punk ignored him.
Same as yesterday. Time to go somewhere with this or else a new arc. New digs for Tiff; Tara confronts Luann; Jonah gets a six month theater run in England and goes knock knock at Brad & Toni’s; Don’t forget Fay…
Is’m wuv the widdle kitties??? Yes him does! You can’t fool the G-man. Who will show up next?
BTW, doesn’t Gunny look nice. Must have just returned from an interview.
Hat’s off to RSH who yesterday pointed out that perhaps what Les needs is a new career other than waking dishes.
I hereby waive my usual disdain for Les’ character and which to fully congratulate RSH on that idea.
Returning to earth, though, Les still has a problem with showing a personality other than his “tough guy” side.
Punk is really hung up on Les. He prefers Les over the cool playhouse. Too bad Irma is just fostering these kitties. Les ought to consider adopting Punk – he named him, didn’t he? And the ramp cat from yesterday’s 4th panel was not the orange cat – there never was. It’s always been a black kitty. The only orange was Moe who is at the vet with Irma and Mr Gray.
nope he’s just attempting to look cool when we all know he isn’t
As i stated before, Les has discovered he’s a “p***y-magnet”, just not kind he was hoping for. Maybe if the ladies caught him off-guard having fun with those kittens, they might see his softer side.
So Les builds a castle so the cats can stop buggin him.
The “Moment of Truth,” may soon be reached here. When a Grinning Gushing Irma Gleefully announces that Pound has found Good Home’s for ALL of the Kittens including Les’ favorite, Punk. And of course, she and Al will keep Moe, who’s responsibly they plan on dumping on the lads at every opportunity, on short notice.
Will Les be able to part with beloved kitten?
Will there be a weeping, wailing, and great gnashing of teeth among his supporters, while Les tries to hide shedding a classic solitary cartoon tear?
Will Les take his anger out on Gunther, as usual?
“Poor” Les. Look. Despite the fact that I don’t care for him, Me help the poor Sap, out.
“Les. You work with Tiffany every single day. And she isn’t likely going to go home for Thanksgiving. So, WHY don’t you ask her out? Or at least invite her to the upcoming Berger-Grey Thanksgiving day bash? You’ll score points with Tiffany and as a bonus, compel Gunther to bring a date. Namely Bets. (Unless Gunny has already been invited for dinner with Bets’ family. In which things are about to get REAL Interesting) Irma would GUSH with Joy!”
“Or are Ye YELLA, Mr. Knox?” :)
I did something like that for our new brother and sister kittens back in 2011. Not as elaborate, but still several vertical levels of boxes with openings strategically cut-out between them and on the outer sides. They loved it.
Just wait until Moe comes over and starts hanging all over Les. Les will end up with a Moe – hair suit…
Sure are a lot of cat haters here today.
BTW, I love dogs but they can be quite destructive. When my daughter got here first apartment I bought her a tv and when she returned it the remote was missing. Turned out her boy friends Akita had pretty much eaten it.
I see the hidden MICKEY
Kitty Castle; nicely done.
Kitten-sittin castle caper, eh. Old grumpy, put upon Les grumbling about kittens, while Punk happily climbs his shirt. Punk picked Les and that is all there is, and per many commentators here cats do that. Where does it lead? Well the boys get along, comfortable Gulag. Les has the same construction instincts as his Uncle Al, which may lead to something? What this leads to remains to be seen, Bets, or Tiffany please visit, or both visit to announce solutions to Tiffany’s current problems. That is what I would like anyway.
We’ve learned that Les likes those kittens no matter what he says. We’ve also learned that Les has a lot of imagination and creative ability to build such an elaborate kitten castle.
At least he had the foresight to make the whole thing out of boxes.
Uh, Les? Business (money-making) idea – hello?
Les must really be taken to Punk, he hasn’t said “OUCH” yet.
You can lead a cat to… wait, no you can’t.
Les is Punk’s favorite toy♡. A huge black cat with a grumpy face that love kittens but pretend to not care. This is very nice.
The trouble with a kitten is that,It inevitably becomes a cat. James Thurber
Where’s the orange kitty?
Had a feeling we’d start seeing Leslie as a more sympathetic character over time. Kinda glad, actually. I figure we’ll know the transformation is complete when he finally convinces Tiff to go on a date and behaves like a perfect gentleman.
If you really want a clothes-destroyer get a bird.
But they’re so cute.
A bit of a “filler” day today.
For me, my presumption is that when all is said and done, Punk will become the household pet in the Gulag. The other kittens will more likely than not go back to the shelter at some point.
Animals “know” who you are. Les is a fundamentally decent man..the truth will out.
Haven’t read any of the replies but with a few cardboard boxes, Les build a kitten climbing empire. Think what a little investment and some good design would bring … a worthwhile endeavor that would make them some $$$!
When did Gunther shave his stubble-beard? Now, with the sweater vest, he’s back to looking dorky. At least he’s not wearing Jeremy Duncan’s purple plaid shirt.
When did Les say he hates cats?
Methinks he doth protest too much
Habits are hard to break. Sweaters are fun to shred.
I wish I could style my hair into Darth Vader’s helmet like Les does.
Punk really seems to be enjoying his “climb.”
I wish GoComics would start using JPG instead of GIF for the comic … the color changes caused by using that format are horrendous and unappealing.
My cats want him to come over and build them a castle.
At least Punk still loves you, Les.
That is one seriously cool kitty-castle even if it is made of cardboard and packing tape.
The kitties will ‘climb on’ to things … Just as Punk is clawing his way to the summit of ‘Mt. Leslie’! :)
The kitten is trying to thank you!
But, they will always Love You Best, Les.
His face says no, but the kitten castle says yes.
Cats are very hard to draw well, even really good artists are flummoxed by cats (François Boucher painted a real abortion or two, in the kitty line). Mr Evans turns out to be very good at it. Either a hidden talent, or he has cats and has observed them lovingly (and perceptively) for a long time.
A visual pun of the painful kind.
Still, it’s an amazing achievement for Leslie Knox!
This is all Al’s plot to get the boys to share the responsibility of caring for the kittens. As they say, it will become a labor of love.
