    “As you know” is a polite translation of “As I’m sure you have forgotten” or “Gonna slide this fact by you right quick before you can catch it”, depending on the speaker and audience.

    Sounds like a perfect peace treaty: Everybody wins, everybody who is a raccoon or opossum, anyway. Truth be told, the rest don’t matter (to the raccoons and opossums) or care (to the rest). However, since it is tangentially related to trespassing raccoons, we have a cat news report about it.

    I read that at first as “Raccoon opium wars.”

    The first panel shows Mouse with a nice short sleeve. Very cute.

    But the Raccoons and Opossums forgot there was a third side to the ‘war’. The people in the buildings.

    Okay, so Georgia isn’t changing the timeline on us. This is after Mouse left the cat rescue (in 1989) and she’s now living at the farm. So she’d be around 2. And since we know Freddie passed on in 1989, this means Angus outlived her. I wonder who’s living in the Big Pink House with him?

    So Wicket won’t be making an appearance, though Beau might!

    Possible wordplay: If that is a jar of fireflies, and Mag uses it as a flashlight, then we could have a – Mag’s light ( Maglite).

    Why do I hear the La Marseillaise in my head when Mag is talking about the war? Perhaps because today is Bastille Day?

    Anyway, I think the Quinn Farm is Rick’s Cafe.

    It’s not unusual to be bugged by anyone

    It’s not unusual to have words with anyone

    But when Mouse sees you hanging out on Angus’ lawn

    It’s not unusual she’ll ask you why

    She’s gonna pry

    It’s not unusual to go out at any time

    But when Mouse sees you trespass about it’s such a crime

    If you should ever wanna argue with anyone

    It’s not unusual

    It happens every day

    No matter what you say

    You’ll find it happens all the time

    Mags will never do what Mouse wants her to

    Let’s watch this crazy news on line

    It’s not unusual to be mad with anyone

    It’s not unusual to be sad with anyone

    But when we find out the agreement from that war time

    It’s not unusual to see from Mags’ point of view

    Whoa-whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Whoa-whoa, oh-ohh

    Whoa-whoa, oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa

    Whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa

    One of the top songs from 1991: Rem’s Losing My Religion

    Oh, life is bigger

    More complicated

    Than war between raccoons

    And opossums

    There is the Big Pink House

    And now, I’ve said a lot

    I set it up

    …….

    That’s me on camera

    That’s you on the lawn

    With your bling and weapon

    Trying to persuade you to leave

    And I don’t know if I can do it

    And now, you stole my mic

    I want it back!

    …….

    I thought that I heard you laughing

    I thought that I heard you sing

    I think I thought I saw you try

    …….

    Every hissing

    And every single poof

    I’m doing my reporting

    Trying to keep an eye on you

    And not sure of the boundary rules, rules

    And now, I’ve said a lot

    I set it up

    …….

    Magnet: Consider this

    Consider this

    The raccoon and opossum war,

    Consider this

    We won

    The spoils of war,

    Trash!

    So what of all the humans

    Come running around,

    We just don’t care that much!

    …….

    Mouse: I know that I hear you laughing

    I thought that I heard you sing

    I know I just saw you steal my mic!

    …….

    But I’ll have the last laugh

    The last laugh!

    …….That’s me on camera

    That’s you on the lawn

    With your bling and weapon

    Trying to persuade you to leave

    And I don’t know if I can do it

    And now, you stole my mic

    I want it back!

    …….

    But I’ll have the last laugh

    The last laugh!

    Oh yes, the Raccoon Opossum wars, were right after the Clone Wars.

    “Commander Kenobi (aka the cameraman), you helped her father during the clone wars, and now she seeks your aid. Please take this microphone away from the empire, and deliver it back to Breaking Cat News Reporter Baba Mouse.”

    Hurry, before the warrior princess can spread her evil through the lands. The dark side runs deep in her.

    Actually, opossums are far more useful that raccoons. They eat ticks and lice, and can’t catch rabies. That being said, raccoons have them beat on the cuteness scale.

    OT: Yesterday’s comments: No, Yum Yum is not particularly amused by Smudge’s antics. Yum Yum is now a genteel, rather staid, middle-aged lady; Smudge is in full child mode, into everything, and she BITES.

    I’ve been wondering why we stopped seeing comments from our younger BCN fans. I finally got around to reading the comment policy and discovered they’ve suspended the accounts of those under 13. Since the BCN books are marketed towards grade and middle schoolers, it’s a shame they’ve been left out of the conversation. I hope the many aren’t being punished for the antics of the few and that this policy is for the protection of the younger one. If this post survives, and if the youngsters are still reading—we miss your viewpoint and hope you will be back once you turn 13.

    In otherwords “We vile raccoons started the war and kicked the possums out of the area. Now we plan to persecute the possums even more as we start a new war with outdoor cats. And there’s nothing you noble outdoor cats can do to stop us. We won’t stop until we rule all.”

    Dear everyone, too many to name—-I just read all the good wishes and prayers both pepper and I received yesterday from BCN “viewers.” Omg, I am still crying but this time with gratefulness. If you ever wonder whether your sentiments really make a difference, the answer is resoundingly yes!!!! Pepper is on my lap. I read your comments out loud to him, too. Biskits

    And they can no longer be called “possums” (the dreaded “P word”). (Please stop trolling me)
