My cat Howard will use jussst the tip of one claw to barely tap me on the small of my back when I’m sitting at my office chair and he wants attention. He has discovered that it’s much more effective that plaintive meows.
As others have pointed out, the vibrations of the man’s shouts are clearly animated with the “wavy” lines.
Several of my kitties started out as ferals, including @Loud_Howard_Cat, who is now a Tommy-like ball of love. I haven’t yet met one who couldn’t be tamed by Gerber baby food (Turkey or Chicken flavor) and patience. Don’t make eye contact at first, just put the baby food on your fingers and stretch out your hand. No sudden movements. They can’t resist the stuff. Every day move your hand a little closer until you can get the kitty to trust you. Be careful not to rush things.
Wait, what’s Woolgoola Curryfest and why DON’T we celebrate it???
BCN is always wonderful but some days Georgia outdoes herself! Brilliant.
Oh, that’s heartbreaking news, Font Lady. Please know that even people you have never met are keeping you in their thoughts and lifting you up in this terrible time.
WOW! I wish I had the skill to do that!
A lot of those vintage vacuums are still going strong, while the new ones are designed to fall apart after a couple of years. In the early 90s I bought a 1950s Kirby that never gave me a minute of trouble, aside from being incredibly heavy…sadly I got rid of it when I moved about ten years later, and bought a new (plastic) one for my new apartment, and then another, and another…all the new ones are broken by hair. Now I have a robot vacuum, but I bet whoever has my old Kirby is still using it!
This was so cleverly done. As a huge fan of the original run of this story, I wondered how Georgia would adapt it to fit the newspaper format, not just editing for length, but also to make the Sunday panels stand alone if people only get the Sunday paper. It must have been very difficult to pull off, and was done beautifully.
Oh, that’s so beautiful! Wow!!
