    Cat should have a little privacy.

    I recall finding in catalogs a litter box that’s disguised as a house plant in a pot.

    I’ve never known ANY animal to be embarrassed about its bodily functions!

    My cat got mad at me once and hid my car and house keys in the litterbox. At least I had cleaned it that morning but still, ick. They sat in bleach for a few hours.

    That’s what domed litter boxes are for.

    At least Rat could have knocked first.

    Snuffles is Zebra’s cat – why does Rat have a litter box in his house?

    So, Mr. Snuffles reads while “on the throne,” heh? Well, Rat, don’t you, too? Just get over it.

    Cat has to modernize his litter box.

    The cat looks so much like a square pillow – is there one out there we can buy? Funny, funny stuff.

    [H]ow come there are no “Pearls” stuffed critters?:There are. Stephan sells them, and there are pictures of them on the cover of Pearls Sells Out. I’ve thought about getting my own Paris Goat…

    I always turn my back when kitty is in the litter.

    Be patient, Rat; you can use the box after Snuffles is done.

    This was before the security chips. Really would have messed it up otherwise.

    So THAT’S what it takes to embarrass Rat! I didn’t think it was possible in this universe. Oh, wait… is this an alternate universe – the 18th dimension?

    I thought he was Zebra’s cat … so either he has a box at Rat’s and Pig’s house or they are crashing at Zebra’s too.

    I really like the colours in today’s strip.

    And you’re right, Rat!

    Either rat is extremely scary or that cat is a disgrace to cat-kind.
