Let’s get back to the pizza!
Technically, Elvis getting out of the bedroom is Cat News.
Back to Cat news(Breaking) and of course, pizza.
Well? What toppings are on that pizza? Get to the important content here, reporters!
And is Elvis serving as a distraction so that the other cats can carry off the pizza?
I like how the Woman, just so happens to be holding the pizza slice such that Goldie can take a bite.
Elvis toe beans!
Woman, how can you be enjoying pizza without Elvis?
Elvis is out! All except The Woman are doomed!
Elvis on the loose! Puck on the Pizza! Lupin on the guests! Goldie on the Pepperoni! Won’t someone think of the Bert?
Had a Cat moment yesterday.
Where I used to live (up to about eight years ago) was an ’elephant’s passage’ between a back lane and a main estate road. We used to have all the neighbourhood felines wandering through, including a lovely lump called Swanny, a tuxedo cat.
Now I’m in a flat some ten minutes walk from that lane but only have reason to head through there once a month. And I rarely see any of the Cats.
Yesterday I had to go down that lane and I hear a rustling from the school grounds. I look and Swanny comes running out down to me, looking exactly as he did the last time I saw him. Pick him up for a fussing. Claws like crampons in the shoulder. Purring, head rubbing, NOT using the crampon claws on exposed skin, licking my hand, licking my nose… A genuinely happy five minutes before I had to go.
Attention All Paws: Elvis has left the bedroom!
Does Lupin have both paws raised in panel 3?
Two things: 1) I’m FINALLY caught up on the backlog of the strip which was a journey, though if your new here I highly recommend it. This strip is one of the funniest and freshest i’ve seen in recent memory and joins other modern classics like Phoebe and Her Unicorn, Wallace the Brave, the Steenz soft reboot of Heart and the City, Crabgrass and Rosebuds in that regard, having a deep mythology somehow, great characters and a brilliant concept. My only real complaint is that the daily run didn’t redo key storylines like the first encounter with the ghosts and the owl saga despite both being refrenced and still in canon, making it harder for new readers. and 2) Look I know Lupin swats at company, but right now he’s not doing anything but being mildly upset you put him in a room against his will. Leave him be. If he swats THEN put my newly adopted grandpa son in a room. You just got through a massive finacial tunnel and are on the precipice of buying a house. You have other things to worry abotu besides the old man what yells at clouds. and probably swats at them too
OT a bit – pizza
Pucky on the pizza box is a purrrrfect panel! :)
Goldie munches on pizza with a wink, and Elvis toe beans. Seriously! Back to Cat News.
Now, I want pizza for dinner.
don’t count on it the courts will be dragging it out
And what kind of worthless degrees did they get? Under water sewing, perhaps?
I was going to say something, but I’ve forgotten it now. If it’s important, it’ll come back to me eventually.
I hadn’t thought about student loan forgiveness helping debt-forgiveness ratios. It does mean that more people will afford to buy their own homes, traditionally a way into the middle class. Thank you, President Biden.
Now I remember what I wanted to say: Why does 60F feel so much chillier in September than in April?
Oceans 31 continued…..
When we left, (10) Tabitha was racing to the team with evidence of insider fraud with *Mrs. Foldman and Johnny* .
(10) Tabitha has found her way inside the Apartment of the woman, with the help of the muscle (2) Puck and (3) Elvis. Elvis escapes from the bathroom, so the (6) man quickly moves to grab him and put him in the bedroom with the kids.
(10) Tabitha moves quickly to the pizza box, where she knows the team will move their focus to.
(4) Goldie removes the Pizza menu from the box and tapes the incriminating evidence to the box.
(22) Beatrix, the kid, relays to the 2nd OP team that it is a go. "Lose the petition from Mrs. Foldman and Johnny to the Trust, and “misplace” their loan application".
(27) Baba Mouse tells Jules to fly at (1) Lupin and have him give chase. Knock over a lamp or two to increase the distraction. Take the first Team offer and get it to (30) Dr. Man, the inside man.
Ah elvis – I know you are on the news desk and not the financial report
The fact that Elvis’ word balloon covers some of the other dialog makes it seem rather ominous. I was hoping for charts and heists, but I suppose pizza will do. Next week: we see the People go to the bank for a loan!
Elvis seems particularly incensed about the whole thing, Puck is bored, Goldie is trying to understand and Lupin just wants to break something.
Pizza is always in order. Does it have extra meat for spoiling the reporters?
I can see where Burt is coming from ala the Miracle comment. Heck as an FSU (Florida State) fan/alum I am amazed the good guys managed to beat LSU 2 weeks ago in Death Valley despite numerous attempts by the team to let the Bayou Bengals win and last night they managed to beat Louisville shorthanded. IF FSU can start 3-0, anything is possible y’all! I love this arc!
I have a feeling the robber mice had Some-Thing to do with Elvis’ escape.
Elvis invokes Cat Rules.
Are the man & woman in the 3rd panel, with Lupin (& pizza) a couple? I do not have a firm grasp on the identities of the People that we don’t see often. Thank you :)
Okay, what happened to the toebean addicts? Hardly a squee to be seen. Well, I always said they were doomed.
Oh, so now I’M paying for the house?
Now he’s free
Yeah he’s free
Good move. Go and borrow even more money. Can’t help some people.
I am so against student loan forgiveness. Miracle? NOT. Additional tax burden for those of us who paid our own tuition at less than ideal interest rates and at great personal sacrifice. So disappointed this issue came up in a cartoon (myfavorite) about cats. I’m not celebrating.
Those of you who don’t like forgiving student loans, write your congresscritturs. Don’t complain about it here.
Can’t believe they were going to leave Elvis in the bedroom !!!
This is one of the justifications for the forgiveness program. It is a basic tenet of conservative economics that homeowners have a stronger interest in their communities than renters just trying to stay off the street.
