A cat lady!!
It’s probably from the smell of all those overfilled Cat boxes
Why does the lady’s face in the first couple of panels look like a younger version of Miss Avis (otherwise known as The Joker’s mom)?
Too many cats no wonder the white cat leaves.
If you keep them inside, they are safe and don’t run off. A cat who lives outside lives on average one month. A cat kept indoors lives on average 10 years. I had one live happily to age 19.
So the lady could not tell her that before she brought the cat to her house? After all Ruthie did talk to the lady on the phone first
