And they do make great cat toys. And, yes, I have had quite a scare when finding one in an odd place. (not as bad as the grey mousie cat toy in the corner of the kitchen seen first thing on a dark winter morning… only bright colored mousies are allowed in my house now.)
I was giving out those rings at Halloween… I had to “sell” them to some kids: "Scare your big sis/bro, or your mom/dad, they make great cat toys! "
I like the way the Tommybaum connects Sophie and Tommy in the last panel. I suspect Sophie would cringe/get tense if they were to hug. (I have a cat who doesn’t like to be touched by anyone or anycat. She’s social, plays, and likes to hang out with company – just don’t try to touch her :)
I would think Firemen often have second jobs. Don’t they often work 24 hours on/48 hours off? The firemen in my life have always had “side jobs” they didn’t sit around eating bon bons and watching TV on their off days. IT’s kinda like how teachers sometimes do income earning stuff on the side (like over the summer break or other school breaks (the teachers I know do stuff thru their school district that gets them extra pay.) .
I suspect Tiffany has been motivated to NOT remain in the dorms (or “Poor”) forever. I doubt party clothes from BossLady and something that looks like "Office"Forever would look hot at a college frat party. Unless times have changed and “catholic school girl” uniforms are out of style…
This is just gross and awful and horrible and yet I find myself laughing and then feeling horrible, awful, and gross that I could laugh at this. It’s the perfect balance of horror and humor.
Oh, no! Fluffy is missing out on the joy of “Thanksgiving Leftovers”. I, too, am missing out on them as I went to a TD dinner and didn’t come home with any leftovers. I feel your pain Fluffy.
Thanks for the info on Lupin’s name! That’s the best!
Oh Lupin! I just keep smiling and hoping that perhaps he’s following in the footstep of who I hope/wish/need him to be named after: Arsène Lupin (perhaps “the third”).
Me, too! Checking if someone else commented on the haiku.
