Hello! I'm the cartoonist behind 'Breaking Cat News!' I enjoy illustrating, cartooning, baking, antique shops, old-timey detective shows, and anything with avocados. Wife, mother, cat lover. One day I hope to be a little old lady who rides around town on her bicycle solving mysteries.

    Yes! That is meant to be the Man as a boy. :)

    I’m so happy everyone loves this third panel, thank you!!! It was so much fun to draw and paint.

    In real life, the Man and I are from Rhode Island, where the Big Pink House is! The comic started when we lived in Washington state. Then about two months later we moved back to our hometown area in Rhode Island, into the real apartment in the real Big Pink House! About a year and a half after that, we moved to California. And then eight months after that we moved back to Washington state, where we live today. It was a lot of moving, but we had to go where the work was for the Man’s job. I love Washington, but I am forever a Rhode Islander at heart! I’m really happy the comic landed there in our travels, and we can be “home” at least on the page.

    I originally tried to write “Gumdrop” in Greek lettering for Clover’s father, but it looked a little off in the picture and I could not be certain I had the lettering correct. However, I mention here for fun that Gumdrop (as in, “we know this for it was guinea-penned by Clover, son of Gumdrop”) was the artist of the Greek styled piece of art!

    This was actually officially the first strip I did in the “old/new” style, with hand lettering! From now on the Sundays are caught up too!

    Good Wills and secondhand shops, and his number one favorite source… the side of the road, lol!

    In non-pandemic times, the Man hosts video game tournaments in the greater Seattle area! He has run the “Mystery Tournament” at the Northwest Majors several times, and was about to have his own event called “Fight Kingdom” in 2020. (It was postponed, due to everything happening around Covid. One day!) Many of the games are older, and he refurbishes CRTs for the tournament set ups. They look best on CRTs, I have been told (they do look pretty good, admittedly!) The cats really do love them for napping, especially Lupin!

    I must confess—the calligraphy is a font here! (Burt’s scrolls will be fonts too, to keep that “station” feel of tv) But hopefully one day, I’ve always wanted to learn calligraphy!

    My Dad was the local newspaper photographer when I was a kid, for the ‘Narragansett Times’. Later when a big out-of-state company bought it, he and others left to start the local ‘South County Independent.’ Occasionally when a big story came around (like the North Cape oil spill in ‘96) I would sit in a room somewhere with him and members of the Associated Press. It was big excitement, everyone from different places, chatting over free coffee and donuts, press passes hanging around their necks or clipped to pockets. As a kid I was free to dash around a bit, say hello to folks from out of town, listen to conversations for possible unknown news details (or so I always hoped), climb chairs until someone told me to stop it, grab a donut—and once PIZZA! The North Cape oil spill again… there was a McDonald’s breakfast laid out in the morning and more boxes of pizza than I’ve ever seen in the afternoon. That was the day I first tried pineapple on pizza, a lifelong love whatever anyone says, lol!!

    It was a stressful, frustrating story for the RI coast and many of the RI newspaper veterans and Danny Dunn’s kid were eating their feelings in egg McMuffins and hash browns in a room filled with folding chairs by the sea. It was a quiet, anxious day, more serious than other times the Associated Press members rolled into town. What I remember best from that time and others was the camaraderie between reporters during long waits for new information. Sympathy to locals anxious to learn the impact to their coast line, asking if anything new had been shared since a bathroom break, gallows humor over styrofoam cups.

    Today’s last panel is my version of the BCN associated press (in 1991, Baba Mouse’s Day). Bringing the news back to their own stations; hedgehog news, snake newsss, beaver news, Blue Jay news (bird news is nuanced and complicated and split between breeds), and others. In town for how long it takes to get the story, flashing press passes and pouring coffee!
