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.

    I want to add, your support here has been incredible! All of the folks tuning into the comic on GoComics has made us a successful webcomic and I am so proud and happy for that. Your likes, comments, and shares have made it certain that we will continue to have a strong online presence, whatever happens elsewhere! <3 I hope so much to be in newspapers near to you, but I’m SO grateful that we all have GoComics as our shared funny pages, wherever we may be!

    Hello, everyone! It’s been a hard year, and it’s tough times right now for many industries, comics included. We’re coming out of about 6-7 newspapers in the next few months. I don’t know which ones (sorry!), it has a lot to do with companies that own large groups of newspapers reorganizing their comics. We’re a smaller comic, and get lost a bit in the shuffle sometimes when something like that happens. These companies usually keep the bigger name comics together, and we’re just not there yet. (Hopefully one day! The book sales help, newspapers that keep us help, your word of mouth helps; it all helps!)

    If you are enjoying ‘Breaking Cat News’ in your newspaper, please let your local paper know. And likewise, if you’d like to see BCN in your newspaper, please ask them to add us! Often an editor might not know folks are enjoying a comic or looking for a new comic to be added, until their readers let them know. If editors hear our name and know people love it, they may add us to your paper!

    I’ve always shared glimpses behind the scenes of what goes into creating a newspaper comic… This is not one of the more fun peeks, but this is part of it too. Everything has its ups and downs, even the funny pages. If your newspaper does drop BCN, if may help if you ask them to reconsider and bring us back. (Readers can sometimes get a newspaper to keep a comic, especially if it’s one of the newspapers that still has some say locally. If your newspaper has this decision made for them, reaching out to the company that owns them could help too!) And we will still be online at GoComics, too, of course!

    We will still be in many newspapers! But 6-7 at once is a big enough chunk that I wanted to give a heads up to readers and prepare folks. This is a small setback—but I’m still so happy to be in the many newspapers we are in and optimistic for BCN’s newspaper count to keep growing. I hope to be in all of your newspapers one day! ❤️

    When I wrote this & handed in this story back in January it felt less like a dire warning… but… Well, just a few weeks later and I feel like the cats are actually onto something here.

    True story: In real life the Girl calls those “Nightmare Monkeys” and this Christmas Eve she appeared in the living room very anxious that Santa was going to bring her one. (He did not). (She originally saw one in ‘Toy Story 3’).

    Cannot believe the timing of our “power outage” storyline this week—thinking of and praying for everyone in Texas. Such a scary, frustrating situation, hoping dearly some relief comes soon. I hope these strips will at least be a comfort to some, however unintended the timing was. And I hope this passes quickly for folks in Texas!

    They’re groundhog proverbs, written here for the groundhogs. :) The first one was my usual Groundhog Day greeting/joke to friends for years, and then I included it as a groundhog proverb in 2019’s Groundhog Day strip. The second is a new groundhog proverb, one we haven’t seen yet from them in the strip.

    Thank you so much. It is such a frightening thing—this week I am happily feeling much better. My energy is back up, my voice and throat are well on the mend. The fearful aspect of the experience is lingering longer than the physical affects, it’s been a little anxious going to sleep at night. That is getting a bit better too, thanks to cuddles from the cats, reassurances from the Man, and late night comfort tv such a Mary Tyler Moore, Taxi, Cheers, etc. Thank you for thinking of me, (and thank you to others reading who have been thinking of me too!)

    I am feeling so much better this week! Thank you to everyone who has reached out with kind words or had warm wishes of comfort and healing for me. It feels good to have energy (and a voice!) back! ❤️
