If memory serves, “people-kittens” first showed up as a chyron, meaning it was coined by Burt, the A.V. cat. https://www.gocomics.com/breaking-cat-news/2017/10/25
It does look like a robe/housecoat. I’m looking forward to seeing what Goldie is going to wear when she’s outfitted with her suit and “collar” (I’m hoping for a blouse with pussycat bow and a smart 1930s/40s-inspired suit.♥
The fact that people are irked by the “misuse” of less and fewer is proof that people understand that they mean the same thing and the distinction between them isn’t so very important. If less expressed a fundamentally different concept than fewer, people wouldn’t be irked—they wouldn’t understand what was meant.
What I find interesting is that fewer is rarely used in place of less, and less is also what most people would say is the opposite of “more”. “Fewer” is supposed to modify nouns that are individual and numerable, and “less” is supposed to modify collective, non-numerable nouns. And yet we don’t have a similar pair of words meaning “more” that distinguish between numerable and collective nouns: you can have more crayons and more coffee.
Awwww, Lupin looks so proud.♥
Yep, “Don’t lick the…” or “Stop chewing on the…” is definitely in the vocab of anybody who cares for little ones. And even more so, I think, with neuro-atypical children, but that might just be my experience talking.
The human tongue magnifies textures (think of how your feel under your tongue) so it’s instinctual for tiny humans to put the world in their mouths or their tongues on it if they really want to get to know it.
I wonder if the Baby was practicing walking when no one was looking.
OMC, Pengo’s little apron is so sweet!♥
Awww, Goldie looks genuinely concerned for Lupin in panel 3.♥
I was just going to ask the same!
