    That is one aggressive newspaper flick there Elvis! But somehow I don’t think Ora Zella is going to be disappointed. She has her jar, and even poked holes in the top!

    Not to worry. “Stay up” and “kitten” are biologically incompatible. I’m sure Ora Zella will juuuuuuust miss him.

    “I stayed up all night with a half-frozen and lost kitten, a situation that I did not cause, by the way. So, I’m thinking that it’s your turn to _”volunteer"_ for this duty.

    How did Ora Zella poke the holes in the top? I think her fangs in panel 2 give a very good clue! And kudos to everyone yesterday who recommended that holes needed to be poked in the top.

    I wonder if Mom Cat or Dad Cat will save the day, so to speak. I can totally see Puck as Santa Claws. Or maybe Lupin’s conscience causes him to perform a noble act? I can’t wait to find out.

    Santa passed away in 1876 40 years after being responsible for the death of the legendary Dave Crockett.

    I’m expecting a real, full size Santa to be worked into the story to make an appearance ala the mailman for Puck. Christmas magic for an overwhelmed kitten.

    0.T. TROUBLE UPDATED – BAD NEWS from Lady Bri late last night: He just had three seizures. We’re rushing him to the After Hours Vet. :( We’re so scared for him! Please continue sending paw power and prayers. His regular vet didn’t have his anticonvulsants in stocks…they said they might have them Monday night. Timing couldn’t be worse.

    PLEASE be praying or do what ever you do to help save our Lady B’s Trouble!!

    Being a bit hard on Lupin, I think. Regardless of what he said, she would have cooked up some way to trap Santa.

    Zella, Santa’s on the way

    Not to end in your jar

    Capture shape shifting alien cat in a jar? Alien astronut theorists suggest that obviously shape shifting alien cat is just gets beams him up through some sortsa teleportation device outta there. No wonder you is can never catches him with anything.

    I could see panel four two ways. Either Elvis is mad at Lupin, or that’s his tough way of saying “This is a job for Dad Cat!”

    He’d better watch out

    He’d better be spry

    He’d better re-route

    I’m telling him why, Ora’s gonna be waiting around

    She’s gonna insist

    Her trapping device

    Removes any doubt

    Although warned twice, Ora’s gonna be waiting around

    And Lupin won’t be sleeping

    He has to stay awake

    He knows bottling Santa isn’t good

    In fact one mega bonkers mistake

    He’s gotta visit all cities and towns

    Can’t let Ora take Santa down

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    Iggy: I’m going to practice my drums for when Cousin Ziggy’s ship puts in to port.

    Ora Z: I wonder if I can make more percussion instruments for the band.

    Iggy: Let’s go to the oPyramid (formerly the You Call That a Pyramid?) to see if Mandy and Lynn have any extra wood scraps from their instrument shop.

    Ora Z: Maybe they’ll have some to burn, too.

    Puckmosis: Not likely. They use just about every piece of wood. And other stuff, too.

    Iggy: But it can’t hurt to pay them a visit.

    At Mandy and Lynn’s Luthier Shop

    Mandy: Hey, guys! What brings you to the luthier shop?

    Iggy: We were wondering how you were doing. And if you have any scraps for percussion instruments.

    Lynn: Well, luthiers make stringed instruments, but are always ready to lend a paw for music. How is your band Mallets Towards None doing, Ora?

    Ora Z: We’ll be getting together for a concert when the Red Planet Spider comes into port.

    Mandy: Oh, that’s the ship your cousin Ziggy Starcross is on, isn’t it, Iggy?

    Iggy: That’s right. I know he loves his guitar.

    Lynn: We’ll have to invent some other instruments for him.

    Simple explanation: Santa has had years to learn all the tricks kids might come up with to see or catch him, and knows how to foil them all. Ora Z is very smart, but the centuries-old elf is smarter.

    Remembered from the “Monkey House” strip (which folded ca 2002): “If you go to bed and stay there, Santa will put your presents under the tree. If you don’t, he’ll just dump them someplace and I’ll have to put them there myself.”

    The orange plush is started to leave the bedroom more often to explore the rest of the trailer. This means coming in contact with the princess and the lil gray guy. Hissing has happened. No swats that I saw.

    Thanks again for all the prayers and good thoughts for my plushy girl! I’ll be going back to my Tommybaum avatar shortly.

    The small book fair at the St. Louis Littery Guild was fun. I met some nice people, sold a few books, and was surprised and delighted when Lucy LuLu paid a visit. I wish I could meet more of the fine people of the Orb. Maybe one day, there will be an opportunity to do book signings in more places. I can always hope.

    I’m starting to wonder what Ora wants to do with Santa.

    This, of course, leads to the question, "Does Santa Claus exist in the BCN-verse? That may sound like a stupid question, but Santa does in the Garfield-verse.
