Lupin is always up for the challenge!
Lupin can turn anything into a weapon against his enemies. Also his friends. And himself. All must be destroyed!
Lupin may be up to the challenge, but I’m not sure the phone case is up to Lupin’s challenge.
It’s June 1. Have you turned your calendar page? Hail, hail, the gang’s all there!
How nice, and on the ball as usual, for Bea to configure Lupin’s phone so that he can easily use it. For those who don’t know, here’s some historical trivia that fits here. Did you know that Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, was also a teacher for the deaf and that his wife was deaf and never able to use his invention? With today’s phones, she too could use them. Bell would probably think that was great. (I did a report on A.G. Bell back when I was in high school many years ago; that’s when I learned this tidbit.)
Panel 3 shows that Lupin has immediately grasped the essential point.
Oh, Lupin. sigh If you ignore Goldie, she’ll just come and jump on you, and she’s bigger than you are. Well done, Beatrix, for rolling right along and distracting him.
In the case of Lupin vs. the case…I’m betting on Lupin.
Okay, kangtourcat , I will delete my post because you asked me to.
When I finally upgrade my phone, I want to text my sister just to ask how to block her. XD
I love that sibling rivalry vibe.
Am I married to Lupin? Hubby destroys much without intending to do so. It’s one reason he has a case for his phone in the first place.
My DH had a good sturdy case (Otterbox) and still managed to break his phone by dropping it upside down on the IV pole stand.
Looks like Lupin “swiped” to open.
Lupin asking the big questions first.
News cats on smart phones set up by a kitten
Lessons on texting then contacting Mittens
Lupin’s phone lights up whenever it rings
These are a few of my favorite things
Protective cases that save phones when falling
Blocking poor Goldie from even calling
Smart phone that flies to the moon when he flings
When the site bites
When Bea can’t ping
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

Nothing’s safe with Lupin around.
I was prepared for the chaos of Lupin trying to become an internet star through dangerous stunts, but focusing on the features Beatrix added for his hearing loss is touching. I am sure she outfitted cranky old Elvis’ phone with similar things to attract him. If nothing else, it can block incoming food.
When Lupin said he was up for the challenge, I suddenly remember an old American Tourister commercial from the 1970s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5sEIWlQO7A
An oldie but goodie: Sugarloaf’s Don’t Call Us
A new phone with all the apps known
And tell me, Bea, how do I block Goldie?
When she calls how does it go to hold?
Bea tells me, “Lupin, don’t be so cold”
I say, “Don’t call me, Goldie, I’ll call you” (or not)
Goldie said, “You got my number?”
I said, “Yeah, Bea programmed it in my phone”
But don’t call me, I’ll call you (or not)"
Don’t call me, I’ll call you (or not)"
“Lupin,” Goldie said,
I texted you the latest scoop
Too bad the text didn’t go through,
Now Tabitha got the breaking news,
So if you want to block my phone,
Somehow the news will still go on
And maybe Puck or Elvis will be glad to talk to me
So, ha, don’t call me now, I’ll call you! (not)
Not fair. Seeing how far they went for Lupin made me cry.
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Beatrixia, I would like you to distribute these pen and papyrus sets to all the Royal Staff.
Bea: At once, Your Majesty. And may I say the carrying cases are beautiful.
The Queen: Yes. The Artists outdid themselves.
At the Royal Library
Elvis-Anum: This portable scroll kit is perfect for my work.
Puckmosis: I love to jot notes as I’m compiling information for my reports.
Enter Lupinium, batting something across the floor
Lupinium: I just love Her Majesty’s gift of play toys.
Bea: Good thing Iron Glove made the carrying cases extra strong.
Lupin is ‘Up to the Challenge’ !! …
(To TOTALLY BREAK ‘The Best Protective Case on the Market’ !! … :)
Is Lupin signing “thank you” in panel 3?
In order of destructive potential: Hammer, sledgehammer, pneumatic hammer, Lupin.
Where’d they get this money. again?
Note Bea pointedly didn’t answer his Goldie question.
Now Lupin no longer needs his tape recorder.
Just imagine if cats began using them smartyphones. Then they wouldn’t be fun to watches any more. They’d just sits with affixed gaze into them smartyphones and not does any of em cat antics anymore.
Beatrix is top notch in coms!
When it comes to destruction Lupin is always up to the challenge.
WRECK IT LUPIN!!!! Prove the best protection isn’t designed with you in mind.

Gloria Fleming, if you see this, can you confirm you have received my email? I think one or both of mine may not have gotten through. Thanks!
Panel 5 – Lupin: “…I need a new phone.”
Notice that no one offers a cat-proof phone case. I’m just saying.
