Oh, that second panel has all the feels!
I’m sorry Lupin, but you’re not a kitten anymore. Kittens can get away with almost anything, more er, mature, cats are supposed to know better.
My Sara likes to have me sing to her too. Fortunately, neither of my girls will claw my beard, though they do love when I rub against them with it. Serious snuggle time.
Are we sure that the Man isn’t actually some kind of lizard? I mean, he keeps losing his tail and regrowing it. (And what kind of predator keeps attacking him?)
And, we have ANGRY Toebeans from Lupin!
She certainly figured out how to work The Man pretty fast!
I guess it’s hard on the youngest sibling when they are no longer the youngest sibling. Being an only child, I never had that problem
Because she’s about 4 and your about 40 (in cat years
Sing her to sleep while she plays you like a violin!
Hush little tortie, don’t mew a word/ Papa’s going to give you a catnip bird.
And if that birdie don’t make you sing/ Papa’s going to give you a bacon ring.
And when that bacon ring is gone/ Papa’s going to play with you until early dawn.
And if Papa falls asleep/ You’ll have to wake him up next week.
And if you can’t wait that long/ You’ll need to sing him the now-now song.
And if your screeching won’t raise the dead/ You’ll need to trample him all over the bed.
But whatever you do, Papa won’t frown/ Because you’ll always be his best little girl in town!
Sing it, OZ! Sing it!
The Man, the hour, the indignation.
Because she’s tiny. You’re a big grown-up cat…
I totally missed that she was stuck in the curtains. Are we sure that was a ploy to get the man’s sympathy instead of being mad?
I’m an old broad here, but I find “the Man” really handsome! O.O
And today’s Fur Babies follows the theme
There ain’t no justice, Lupin.
That’s right Lupin. Them hyoomans is unfair crooks. They is usurp we property and steals all we habitat and then if want their food then they is screams EEKS A BEAR and shooes we away. :’-(
Swoon Alert! Swoon Alert! Handsome man holding a cute kitten! Swooning thumps can be heard across the commenter’s verse!
Because, Lupin, the Man loves her more. Wicked laughter.
I hope Maizing’s okay . . . :( . . . send out lots of warm thoughts, prayers, and purrs on her behalf. (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Maizing/Ahsum)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
Everything a kitten does is adorable. They can’t help it.
Work that adorability, Ora Zella.
There’s a difference between climbing and hanging out, and being a stuck kitten (or smol cat).
Velcro Ora Zella.
Lupin is so dignified right now. Elvis has taught him well.
Claw, Claw, Claw your beard.
Gently down your chin.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily.
I climb, and I win! … :)
(My effort’s not too bad, but dmah wins the song parody of the day above – Hands / Paws down!! Very Nice!!) … :)
OT: I had to put my Misty to sleep yesterday. She had major kidney disease and wasn’t eating.
She’s a daddy’s girl.
I think Lupin’s issue might be more that Ora Zella has the Man’s attention than the unfairness of it all. Don’t worry, Lupin, at least she will never match your talent for turning invisible.
Lupin, don’t be upset. As an adult cat, you know you aren’t supposed to climb the curtains. Ora Zella is only a baby and she hasn’t learned yet. Judicious applications of the no-no spray bottle will teach her.
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Beatrixia: Looks like all the sisters met fine cats. Except for the youngest. What happened between her and Pink Lupin?
Elvis-Anum: According to the story, at the end of the Yarn Ball the four older sisters introduced their young cats to Tommy, who was delighted to meet them. But young Ora Zella was nowhere to be found.
Here’s the rest of the story:
Chef Tommy: I’m delighted to meet you, young cats. I am sure you all are fine, upstanding cat men.
Puck: I would like to ask you for Sophie’s paw in marriage, Chef Tommy.
Elvis: And I would like to court Tabitha, who is not intimidated by my poofing.
Chef Tommy: Agreed.
Captain Iggy: I must go back to my ship, but I would like to come to an understanding with Beatrix. When I’m back from sailing and she completes her studies at University, we would like to wed.
Burt: And I would like to wed Goldie as soon as I have made Run Down Estate Habitable.
Chef Tommy: This is all wonderful news. But where is Ora Zella?
Puck: Oh, no! It seems Pink Lupin is missing as well!
I always love that cranky Lupin face!
Lupin, those are just the realities of life, one day you are king of the world and can do no wrong, the next day you are just one of the peasants trying to stay out of the line of fire.
Looks like she’s learned how to pull a Nermal.
My cat meowed at 1:48AM last night.
Aww Leapin Lupin, kittens are just a different category…..
I’m so sorry. Gentle purrs of comfort from us at Malaria Gardens. My girls will get extra love tonight in her memory.
Aw, look at that li’l cat tail.
Aw, so much to love in this strip!
When you get stuck on the curtains, you can do a lot of damage, Lupin. When Ora Zella gets caught on the curtains, she’s too small to do much harm.
It’s unfair when you’re older and you can’t get away with all the fun things you could do when you were younger. You hear things like “you should know better” or “aren’t you too old for this” or “did you think you’d actually fit inside that McDonald’s play place”.
Very smol kitties’ needle-like claws allow them to levitate up almost any slightly porous vertical surface. (I wonder if it’s a phenomenon related to newborn humans’ ability to reflexively grab with enough strength to support their body weight.) But to their chagrin, this super-power doesn’t last, and they enter the “puff-up-at-anything” stage, followed by the “staple-everything-with-my-fangs-because-I’m-teething” stage. Then they discover they can no longer fit behind the china cabinet as part of their “zoomies” route.
Love the stages they go through! What others have I forgotten?
CHIP, Lupin (Cuteness Has Its Privileges).
I guess the Man should be pleased that Ora Zella isn’t “kissing” him:
The Man cut off his tail? Guess he got his summer haircut!
Panel 2, Ora Zella’s twitching little tail has broken her speech bubble!
OT: This ‘n’ that…
The Man looks pretty nice with shorter hair.
The justice system is different for juveniles than it is for adults, as it should be.
I suppose as Daeder said, repeat offenders are disciplined.
Beard clawing. She’s creative.
Don’t forget all the love Elvis got when was stuck in the curtains. Actually I don’t remember Lupin getting stuck in curtains – ???? He’s gotten in trouble for a lot of other things…
Yup, suspected from the start, she’s his. “Sing me to sleep, Papa!”
I always loved to strip where Elvis was stuck on the curtains and he refused help from the man. Only wanted his Mommy to help him.
