Is this why all the cat toys wind up under the couch or TV stand? It was just the cats escorting the toys to safety? So the toys wouldn’t get stepped on by the humans?
All of the above quotes. but also The episode with little suits (costumes) Puck (dressed as a lady bug)" I’m a boy. Don’t they know I’m a boy?". I always read that as an incredulous wondering lament.
Best depiction of a cat face in a glass. I suspect quarter filled glasses and cups and cardboard boxes littered the plains, deserts, forest and jungles where the primitive House cats of the Quaternary Period roamed and the House cats of today remember this.
When I first brought home Little Girl cat from the Professional House Cat Placement Services office (aka the local cat shelter). She would liberally use her claws when swatting any attempt at a “pet”… but as she settled in she switched over to the “velvet paw” versus the “razor paw”. She’s doesn’t like to be touched, but she always uses the “velvet paw” – even if you ignore the threat of the raised paw and still go in for an ear rub. :)
The “Smooch” sang the Hungry Cat Blues – sometimes he would do a duet with the Iron Paw (as in She Ruled the House with an Iron Paw) when the food bowls were empty. Sometimes all three would be the Hungry Cat Chorus. :) I often heard the cats practicing by singing to the birds, their toys, a bug, or sometimes singing in a corner of a room (to a ghost perhaps?). :) I never really understood a word they sang… but now I have some clue. Thanks Georgia!
And, something else I can never “unsee”.
atleast the door at the Fish Market will open with an a wave of the paw and a “Open Sez me!”
OMC. The next time there’s a dust up between the cats, I’m gonna ask who forgot to order the coffee! This strip made me laugh out loud. I’ve always wondered what the ‘fight’ might be about.
Not sure but it looks like it’s the coffee from the original Christmas strips – when Elvis goes outside after Tommy. https://www.gocomics.com/breaking-cat-news/2017/12/02?comments=visible#comments
If it’s one of those lite weight plastic cones – you might be about to cut it down some – still long enough so she can’t scratch her ear – but no longer so long that it gets in the way of water/food. I did that for a cat that was had surgery on a paw. He was a small cat (7 pounds soaking wet) with a small head. I think I started by cutting it back (from the widest end) a 1/2 inch at a time until it was just right – I think for him I took off 2 inches of cone… it was a long time ago. Have a spare cone handy just in case you mess up the first one.
