Why doesn’t Elvis rescue his little friend who rescued him so they all can have a merry Christmas?
Love their expressions in panel 2! Elvis is gonna now save the day for Tommy! Happy Holidays to you all of you!
Panel 10 beautifully done ….. happy, happy, good boy Elvis ……… Smiley smiley me
I think Elvis is about to be a VERY good boy!
Good, good. Closer to Tommy being happy. Good. Keep it up.
Very good boy, Elvis!!
I love Elvis’s expression in that last panel. Also, I love the *shake shake shake* – such a true kitty thing to do.
ELVIS TO THE RESCUE!!!!
Please let Elvis rescue his cute little friend that helped him!!!!!!!!!! Don’t leave him outside and alone!!!!!! WE LOVE BREAKING CAT NEWS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!
YES!!! Go Elvis!!!
Considering his poor sense of direction, I’m not sure that poster will help Elvis achieve his goal.
This time he only needs to follow his own tracks home.
Have faith – Elvis is now officially a SUPERHERO!!!!
Just hope Tommy hasn’t been found in his little wonderland, and asked to move on, before the people get there!
Elvis is going to be a HERO!
Elvis really is a good boy! I love how the boys interview/comfort Elvis. They are also good boys. Thank you for sharing your cats with us in this lovely cartoon.
Yay Elvis! You’re going to be the best boy!
Shake Shake Shake! Too cute
Also, LOL at “May I wash your face?”.
Elvis is King!
Yes, Elvis is being “very brave, capable & CLEVER,” …and a VERY good boy.
“thump!” “big drop, i’m okay”, the little shaky feets, braving that outdoors again for Tommy. Elvis, you’re a Hero! we are echoing the refrain…”goooooo elvis!” Georgia you are heroic too!
Our good boy, Elvis, is indeed being VERY “brave, capable & clever!!”
Go Elvis Go Elvis GO!!!!!!!! This is going to be a wonderful Christmas. I had a cat that ran away once, we had just about given up when on Christmas Eve I woke up to the sound of my family screaming with joy, we found her sitting on our back porch healthy and happy to be home. It was a Christmas miracle, and we still have her today. Her name is snowy.
Elvis is for the president of the world! For being that good! Or trying to be, will know for sure a bit later, i guess.
Also, it’s nice that Puck and Lupin were happy to see him and not “Hey you smell different and wrong, we hate you now”.
I love fiction – we can ignore the sordid reality that make up the usual feline politics in our real-world households AND trust that a Siamese will do the right thing
Yeah, when my cat got trapped outside for almost FOUR WEEKS in the winter (she’s fine, though she was so frighteningly skinny then that you could see her ribs through her long fur), she meowed at the window to be let in. Just like Elvis here. Except afterwards instead of jumping into my arms she ran back to where she had been trapped and refused to let me pick her up until she got distracted by food.
The entire toon is so adorable! From love from Lupin and Puck to Elvis deciding he is going to be a truly good boy, he’s on his way to rescue Tommy!
Awwww! Elvis is being so thoughtful! The real thing to think about is: What will the people think?
Go, Elvis, GO!!
ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!!!
*ducks snowballs thrown*
Love panel 2… Hugs all around…
Good luck Elvis!!!
Lupin upside down and happy in panel #3 and Elvis’s “lineman for the county” pose in the last (love the back claws detail): so much to love! <3
This is SO COOL!!
oh great, now my eyes are leaking..
Okay, maybe I’m hormonal, but I totally got teary-eyed in the last panel.
I will admit that I was a bit teary eyed as I drew it, but in a very happy tears way… That might be odd, but sometimes these panels crack me up or make me teary too as I draw them, and that’s when I hope I’m on the right track. (Full disclosure, it may be hormones as the Man and I are expecting Baby Two in April–but it might have just been real tears too, ha!)
Congratulations on the impending addition, Georgia! I look forward to seeing the cats’ reactions to that in BCN someday.
Thank you! We are over the Moon! And only recently found out that she’s a girl The boys seem to know already, at least, Puck and Elvis are often at my side again these days. Lupin seems to trust that I’ll be alright, ha!
Congratulations on the baby! Good to know the boy:girl ratio in the house won’t be completely lopsided.
Congrats! This time the boys might suspect what is about to happen.
Thank you!! I think you’re right–in real life they seem much more calm this time, but nearly as protective!
Congratulations, a baby girl, how wonderful is that what a christmas !
Thank you, Barbara! We are so excited!
Scruffles and Bear approve of this meme.
Yay, Elvis! Such a brave and good boy!
Yay Elvis! And yay Georgia! This is so much fun!
I always new Elvis had it in him to be a hero. Go Elvis, go!
I cant believe how invested I am in these wee kitties! I worry for them like our own cats! I want Tommy to have his home back so bad – the last part 5 made me so sad he was at the window looking in I hope Elvis saves the day!!!
Another wonderful installment of the Christmas Special!
A question about Panel 10, which I love. Did you draw the flashback to Tommy or is it a reduced/faded copy from the earlier episode? I guess I’m curious to know if you used a computer/software assist. I’m fairly positive you hand-draw everything so I’m wondering if this could be a first for you (at least with this comic).
This was a first for me in the comic, as far as I can remember. I took the image from that earlier panel, and then I took out some of the words and increased the size of the text. And lastly, I faded the image from that panel a little in Photoshop. These are my very, very limited digital skills at work, ha! Hand drawn ends up being much easier for me 95% of the time, but I had really liked that little image of Tommy and wanted to use that exactly.
Ha! I’m lucky if I can draw a stick figure, so my percentages would be the exact opposite. I have to admit I’m torn about that particular image. I love the drawing but it is sooooo hard to see a “sad Tommy”. Either way, it was a brilliant way to bring Elvis’s flashback to life.
Loved the image too, it instantly evoked Tommys sadness in the previous comic, even though this one is so full of joy.
I knew Elvis spotted the poster!!! Go Elvis!!!! Brave, capable and clever!!!!
I think I like where this is headed – I knew you (and Elvis!)wouldn’t leave Tommy out in the cold!
Congratulations as well on the impending arrival of your little girl! I hope you, the Man, the Baby, Lupin, Elvis, and Puck enjoy the holidays!
PS – I am sending out my BCN Christmas cards this weekend – I just love them and think these are the best cards we’ve ever sent out!
Love this episode, every panel. Love that Elvis is clinging to his food bowl while getting hugs in panel 2.
LOL at “May I wash your face?” and Elvis doing the ‘step, shake, shake,…step, shake, shake, shake,…step, shake, shake’.
And I’m bawling like a baby thinking about what’s going to happen with Tommy and his people. I’m betting that Elvis will claim that he only did it so Tommy would stop hanging around and looking in their windows!
Elvis, you a superhero! or a supercat? :))
Elvis is being so brave! Even more impressive, how much of a fraidycat he usually is.
