Does anyone have a favorite Thanksgiving dish? Mine is pumpkin pie.
It looks like the intruder has her boyfriend with he. Lupin doesn’t seem to mind.
The peace of pie! That’s a keeper!
Dressed like a bat?! Who would have thunk it!
Have we seen the Woman’s sister’s boyfriend in the newspapers yet? Here he is meeting Lupin for the first time.http://www.breakingcatnews.com/comic/local-cat-causes-scene-in-the-living-room/
May the peace of pie be with us all!
Only one piece cut out of a pumpkin pie with 4 adults and 2 kids in the room? They must have started in on a second pie.
I guess Elvis is done guarding the coats so now he’s guarding the woman.
Elvis appears to be doing some investigative reporting on the Woman’s slice of pie – or the whipped cream topping.
Who’s the guy with the long hair? Looks like the dad but with hair
Is the boy creating a finger-paint masterpiece in the middle panel?
Puck! Off the table!
Elvis has escaped from the coats.
Elvis wants to hear more of this story!
Aww, look at the Puckyloaf! ❤
What are the kids reaching for?
It’s a happy time for the family!
I ate plenty of space goo. Dad had fun making dinner yesterday.
Ahhh the 90s . . . when grunge was hot, goth was in, and head-bangers were one of the many major cliques in my high school. If you didn’t listen to Metallica, Alice in Chains, Korn, Pearl Jam, Placebo, Fear Factory, Oasis (and a medley of other alternative rock bands) you were branded “uncool”. Wearing black (especially leather) and/or a flannel long-sleeved shirt was highly recommended. (ﾐゝᆽ╹ﾐ)
The Peace of Pie or the Torpor of Turkey.
Ah yes, the teen years rebellion during which the young proved they would never conform to the parents’ mores by conforming instead to the current teen fads. With skinny pants seemingly out, I am watching wide legs return with a certain degree of trepidation that they might re-achieve bell bottom fullness but possibly minus the tie dye and peace medallion patches. Time to get out my “I survived the 60’s TWICE!” T-shirt. Age may or may not bring wisdom but it does bring a wry appreciation of the circular nature of human experience.
Ha ha ha! Love Mom’s knowing smile! She saying, so cool, when she knows you weren’t!
I was goth too! We WERE cool!
Hahaha, dressed like a bat! Never heard goth referred to that way.
Gotta love Mom’s grounding, LOL
Dinner was a success. We avoided talking about politics, and everyone had a good time.
And yes, Hamilton jumped on the counter and licked the turkey. More on this later.
When I was young, I was not cool. A partial list of the kids who were cooler than I…
But I got even. Now I am old and not cool!
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Once again we celebrate the Feast of Gratitude. Thomios, you have outdone yourself.
Thomios: Thank you, Your Majesty. It’s always a pleasure to provide the feast.
Puckmosis: How did you manage to obtain so much fish?
Thomios: As always, there just seemed to be enough in the kitchen.
Beatrixia: I’m sure you ladies had nothing to do with it.
At the fishing boat of the Water Cat brothers.
Freshwater Cat: Well, that was a successful fishing trip, Salty. Did we leave enough for the Royal Procurers?
Saltwater Cat: Yep, like they took it all.
Hi. I is Hamilton A. Cat
There is more to this story about the turkey. Dad is just upset because I was checking the turkey for him.
I has to go, he is coming back to his computer.
The middle panel is perfect. Love Goldie’s sweet, contented face.
3 very happy kitties . . .
Plus Elvis trying to pilfer that pie!
Sure you were, Woman, sure you were. ;)
Did you draw cute cat cartoons when you were goth?
Yeah, and I thought the parachute pants I had in the ’80s were cool, too….
I never thought Goths were supposed to look like bats. I always thought they looked like people who let their makeup get away from them and it turned them surly. :)
OT: Update on my mom
The woman is “BatGirl!”
That makes perfect sense….
“BatGirl” was a teenager when she helped out Robin and Batman…then disappeared….rumor was she was shot by the Joker and became Oracle.
But now we know, she just stepped back and became a mom and wife, with four adorable fuzzy friends…
Check out “Mannequin on the Moon,” today, apropos of feasting.
The term “goth,” always makes me think of the originals—who would have laughed hysterically at the modern version.
& a good time was had by all XXX
Meh. I was a Visigoth. Except on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month when I was an Ostrogoth.
Thanks Georgia, for letting us be part of a sane family!
Squirrel girl, “peace of pie”, and “so cool, dear”. I can hardly stand the cuteness, cleverness, and humor overload all in this one strip.
Now we know, Goth. All the cats look so happy. Well except Elvis is below the table so you really can’t tell.
Ah, the Bat of Goth-ham, eh.
Hey, brother in law has The Man’s style.
I’d love to see a picture of Georgia in her Goth period …
O.T. – Creator’s birthday coming up!! November 28th is our darlin’ Gothgirl’s birthday!
I would have fallen so hard for a girl that dressed like a bat when I was in high school.
I hope everyone had as good a Thanksgiving as the Woman and her family seem to have had.
We could not afford to fly Mac home for the holiday. However, another family who lives in New York invited him to their home for thanksgiving. Today, they took him and two other dancers to an ethnic Sicilian Restaurant in NY City. Everything, including the menus, are in Italian.
I told him to look for Pollo since he likes chicken. Furthermore, I told him to leave the gun and take the cannoli.
We went to a very rough neighborhood to pick up some supply for my dad’s office when I was in 10th grade (’73). AS really hot looking Greaser (leather jacket, longer slicked back hair, flannel shirt, long straight legged black jeans, boots) walked past, he nodded at me and mom went ballistic. I wonder how he turned out???
OT- Happy Birthday to me and lalybarger!!!!
I don’t think it has been mentioned yet, but, considering their histories, there is something brilliant in the image of Lupin happily snoozing in the Intruder’s arms….while Goldie is happily planted in the arms of the Intruder’s boyfriend*.
*Or fiancé or husband…whatever. Lupin doesn’t like him. So, of course, Goldie likes him.
OT Lady Kat:
Happy birthday to Lalybarger!! wishing you many years of love, joy, peace, prosperity and good health!!
Elvis, not confined to solitary? Ok, who is this cat and what has he done with the real Elvis? I get Nana, but I thought she was the only one Elvis didn’t have a problem with. Outside the boy and girl and, of course, the woman.
I spent my thanksgiving night in the hospital with my first kidney stone. :(
Puck looks so cute in panel two.
I might have also dressed like a bat in high school…
A bat for three years!! OMG PMSL! That’s great.
ha so cool. glad we get to see this side of the woman
