    Aaand . . . the screen goes all blurry again.

    It must be something about the air getting cooler and less humid. It does something to the screens.

    Angus the Firefly. Few could tell you how he came by that nickname, but everyone knew that he had earned it.

    This is an awesome arc, one of the best ever. Great way to wrap up October which has not been the best month for many along the SunCoast. I love any appearance by Angus, what a loving gentleman he is and it is good to see the Robber Mice; I have been a bit surprised that they did not run into Beatrix and her new friends in the old wing of the Big Pink House. Nonetheless, it looks like it is all coming together for an amazing ending. Happy Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Dia De Muertos, All Saints Day and All Souls Day to everyone! Now I am going to try and see if I can stay up and watch Voyage to The Bottom of the Sea and Land of the Giants on MeTV. Thanks for a great October storyline Georgia!

    We always said we attracted random kitties because someone (probably Diana, back when) put up a sign only visible to cats reading Here There Be Suckers.

    Looks like the commenters called the nature of the lightening bug the kittens were following, too.

    Bless the house and those who dwell there

    Giving shelter from the storm

    Keeping them safe

    This is absolutely beautiful!

She has such a talent with characters as well, and I will continue to appreciate more Angus.

Still dark outside. Sammy looks up at me while I’m rubbing her ears and jaw; I slow blink at her, she slow blinks back and purrs. It’s Heaven!

    BCN Tarot: Here comes the Sun…

    …featuring Cat Himself! And so appropriate to today’s strip:

    Like coming into the light after a time of darkness, this card radiates hope and a spirit of “You can do this!”


    p.s. I thought the “firefly” would turn out to be a ghost cat with a lantern, but I wouldn’t have guessed in a million years that Angus would be the one shining the light to guide Iggy & Ora Zella to a place of safety & love… ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    p.p.s. I have GOT to do something about this danged blurry screen…

    I vaguely remember a kerfuffle over Buzzy Mouse a few weeks ago. I do not remember if any sort of consensus came of it from the readers, however, I did find another Georgia Gem on the other site that I am currently procrastinating on. For the record I am not attempting to start anything, just show that this beautiful comic has been an ally in the past. Have a gorgeous Sunday, mine is rainy but I like the rain so no complaints here. :)

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    Beatrixia: While going through the archives, I found a story of The Enchanted Pyramid.

    Elvis-Anum: I’ve heard of that. Didn’t two sad cats find each other and find love and joy together?

    Bea: That’s right. Here’s the script of The Enchanted Pyramid.

    Enter Battle-Scarred Sailor and Plain-Looking Kitty

    Sailor: I’m Iggy Seagoer. I’m renting this pyramid after a terrible accident ended my seagoing days.

    Plain Kitty: And I’m Ora Plain, the new maid.

    Mrs. Mewnitt, the Housekeeper: Welcome to the Enchanted Pyramid. It is my hope that your stay here will be most life-changing.

    Iggy: Wonder what she meant by that. Is this place haunted?

    Mrs. Mew: It is not haunted. It is enchanted by the spirits of those who have found joy here.

    Sometime Later

    Iggy: Ora, do you ever hear whispers?

    Ora: Sometimes. But I think it’s just my imagination once again running away with me.

    Iggy: No, listen.

    Whispers: (Welcome) (Greetings) (Hello)

    More Time Passes

    Iggy: Ora, I don’t know why they call you plain. You’re beautiful.

    Ora: And even with losing an eye you see so much better than so many others.

    Mrs. Mew: You have discovered the secret of the Enchanted Pyramid. You have found love.

    Bea: “And so they lived happily ever after, even crossing the Rainbow Bridge paw in paw together.”

    Elvis: Such a beautiful story. I wish it were true.

    Whispers: (It is)

    Is this really the end of this arc? I believe this will segue into the introduction of the new cats to the Woman and the Man and Elvis, Puck , Lupin and Goldie. Who gets along with who? And who has a contentious relationship ala Lupin and Goldie? There are so many possibilities that I can see this continuing all the way to the end of the year.

    Just got done carving a couple of jack-o-lanterns. One a regular jack-o-lantern pumpkin, nice and large, the other a little snowbaby ghost pumpkin. REALLY wished I had my seven year old niece helping me on the snowbaby. Could have used her little hands to clean it out. I’m not the tallest guy around, about average height, but my hands were a little too large for an easy time cleaning the pumpkin to care it. Looked like I was wearing Roman Republic/Empire boxing gloves when I could get my hand inside. And it’s so small it takes a tea light to light it.

    My daughter told me she saw a grey tabby kitten on the porch yesterday. We keep food, water, and a cathouse on the front porch and it looks like another kitten has found it. Looks to be 6-8 months old and ran when Jora moved closer to the window to get a better look. I’m betting she’s the one who dragged out the old skirt I had put in the cathouse. I’ll have to stuff it back in tomorrow.

    Georgia, I just hope the BPH never suffers the fate of the Home. (yes, I just re-read the stories of the People, and for any Orbster who hasn’t read them, I strongly recommend Ingathering-The Complete Stories of the People by Zenna Henderson)

    This strip—especially the last panel—goes into my mental file with the last two panels of the first Hallowe’en Special.
