I’m allergic to cats. Which means I generally ignore them. Which means they tend to come to me for affection. Which means people assume I’m great with cats…
If he knew what he was going to be subjected to, the bouquet in his hand will be fresh catnip
Pretty good character judges.
I’ve read that pets pick up on their owner’s subconscious feelings about other people and reflect them back. Don’t know if it’s true, though.
So if he starts sneezing, the date is off?
It’s a furry jury.
Should have brought your DOG advisor!
This has all the hallmarks of a CAT-astrophe!!
I’d be on the couch, petting the cats!
I’ll take the chair – the cats can join me if they wish.
A CAT scan! Very effective, very telling!
He’ll be out of there like he was shot from a CAT-apult.
What a purr-fect way to start an evening.
Wait until they smell d-o-g on him. It’ll be all over.
Let’s see now, she has five (5) cats. Just back away slowly and make a break for the door.
Looking forward means you can look at a Wisconsin flag. Looking backward, find route 117 in INgalls, Michigan. Looking sideways, remember SnOOPY starts with Sn(50) and ends with Y(39) in chemistry code make-up assignments.
I’ve said it in the comments section of some other strip a while back, but it could bear repeating here: there is nothing more spiritually centering than to sit down on someone else’s sofa and be immediately swarmed by kittens.
Is it the same if you have 5 dogs?
“ I left my wallet in my car! Be right back!” Slam and screeeech. Right past second gear.
Wiley! That one cat is licking his, er, nevermind.
They’re cats. Wouldn’t they just ignore him?
The second test is whether he sticks around after one of the cats starts licking its nether region.
Where are the dogs? This would be me, but 2 cats & 2 dogs.
Hasn’t anybody noticed that he’s in a dark suit sitting down on a sofa with a bunch of cats?
Never Date A Cat Lady ! ( from " Linguist’s Guide To A Sane and Happy Existence " )
Cats worship me…
That would leave me cataleptic.
I think that i would pass.
I am a doggy person, but i do like cats.
And, more importantly, cats seem to like me.
He likes cats, had one for breakfast, fried up nice and crispy.
The ultimate cat scan.
I learned rather soon after I got my German Shepherd that he liked most people a lot. He was thrilled to have company. However, there were a few people who came in to give me bids on work around the house that he would not greet happily, and then would get between me and them and growl if they came close to me. I hired a few before I learned that Duke was a better judge of character than I was. After that, if Duke didn’t like them, I didn’t hire them.
Cat hair, all over a nice dark suit. Hope she has a lint roller.
Brett Kavanaugh,the real Senate inquiry ;(
Now we know why all crazy cat ladies are depicted as being single.
Run, don’t walk – crazy cat lady
RUN…. AND DONT COME BACK!
If you want the best seat in the house, move the cat…
Wiley always has one licking its bum….
I sense a correlation between the statements, “I have eight cats” and “I live alone”…. they’re all strays and rescues, and I won’t take on any more, but I am happy that I’ve been able to do it.
In my house if you want the best seat in the house, you’re going to have to move the Dog.
The real deal-breaker for her, though, comes once she finds out he has cats, too!
Over the years, I’ve always had several cats at a time….each has had it’s own personality. Right now, I have a comic entertainer; a diva; a male hairdresser; a runway model; a nurse and a bouncer. Since my husband died, I’ve become a cliche’….the old woman who lives by herself with a house full of cats…but that’s ok!
Where’s the drooly kid in diapers?
Mark Twain wrote: “When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade, without further introduction.”
Cats always bite me!
When I was very young, we had a really large black and white cat. We went on a vacation, and my uncle was supposed to look after it. To make it easy on himself, he took it to his house about 10 miles south from our house. The cat ran away, to no one’s surprise here…and I’m sure no one will be surprised either, that it found its way back to us about four months later…
We loved that cat even more after that. It lived until about age 20 or so.
BTW, I loved today’s strip. The witness chair is perfect for the suitor. If he passes the inquisition he’ll be a keeper. But what with today’s expectation of instant results, he might just leave before taking that seat…
How very retro. . .I thought all this was taken car of online now. . .Do people still actually interact face to face?
Time to make a feline for the door.
CAT scans are MAN datory.
I had a cat that was very intuitive about people. She didn’t really like people but most of the time would just ignore visitors. Sometimes, however, upon meeting someone, she would stare at them a few moments, stand up, turn around, jut her tail straight up and stalk out of the room as is to say “you are so beneath us, vile creature.” I soon learned when she exhibited that behavior, there was usually a good reason so when asked out on a date I would tell the guy, “if my cat likes you we can go out.” Let me tell you, that gets rid of 99.9% of the male population! When my (now) husband, Mr. I-don’t-like-cats, came over the first time, Micki jumped on his lap and went to sleep. I knew then and there he was a keeper. We currently have three cats (our Cuda died this past October 15th) and he just adores his “puppies”. As I said, he doesn’t like cats so he calls them his “puppies”.
First item on the Cat Committee agenda: are you for the legalization of catnip?
Hell no.Greet the kitties.
I would definitely trust their opinion.
When I first met my husband, I had a Siamese cat who met him at the door when he came to pick me up on our first date. She gave her approval and loved him for the rest of her life. Before I met him, he said he was a dog person, but now we have both dogs and cats i our home.
Best judges of character ever.
