So much smiling Elvis these days. ‘Tis the season!
Soooo cute! My 2 guys love to be told how great they are too. They never seem to get tired of it! : )
Same with mine. She also enjoys being informed that she’s small and fuzzy and cute.
Daw! Whosh a gud widdle kiddy?
I have often been tempted to comment that a particular strip is my favorite, but I’ve resisted because…well, somehow I knew this one was coming. THIS is my favorite strip ever. It’s perfect in every way.
Thank you, Suzanne!
Slightly different questions are posed in my house, with the same result: “Who’s a sweet kitty baby? Who is? Whooooooooo is?” (Hazza) “Who’s mummah’s fat sweet boy? Who’s my big boy?” (Boyd) “Who’s the prettiest white kitty in the world? Who is mummah’s sweet angel kitty?” (Spencer)
(Jonwalker doesn’t like to be condescended to, so he avoids these shenanigans at all cost.)
I adore the under-the-chin angle of Puck and proud Elvis’s happy, curly tail!
Reminded me instantly of this one:
AHH!!! That is adorable, I love it!
The expression on Lupin’s face in panel 9 is THE BEST.
I respectfully disagree. Lupin’s shade-throwing in panel 4 is THE BEST.
Love panel 4 too
One of my cats just too much adores being called a good boy; it’s way better than kitty treats, in his opinion. =)
awww.. Good boys!
I regularly ask each of my eight cats “who’s my best guy?” or “who’s my best girl?” (depending on the gender of the askee). Except for Sebastian Catbutt, who gets asked “who’s my buddy, who’s my pal?” on a daily basis.
“And what do good boys get?” “Treats?” “Yes, good boys get treats!”
I just wanted to pass along a comment from my furry friend, Bailey Dog, he says, “Out of the way cats! I’m the good boy!”
Another argument for naming a black cat “Shaft”.
Aw, I love this one. Even Cat Bauer, who doesn’t care for most things, loves to be asked if he’s a good boy!
I prefer “Who’s the prettiest kitty in a five-foot radius?!?”
Who’s a great cartoonist and storyteller? You are, yes you are!!
Absolutely wonderful, Georgia. As ever.
Hahaha!!! Thank you, Elayne!
er………..hello…………good boy here too………..
Tried to resist, but here goes …. Beautifullest beau beau in the world,
Purry, purry girl, gorgeous sweety pie, and so on …. I blush
They’re all so adorable! I would love to see stuffed animals made of them in their suit/shirt outfits.
Our two boys frequently get asked some version of “Who’s a handsome little pest?”, followed by an ear scritch. This usually occurs when they’ve managed to do something that is equal parts annoying and adorable at the same time.
Typically when I do this the cat responds with a purr then a quick twist of the head and he sinks his teeth into my thumb.
Hi! I was wondering about Lupin’s real life response when you guys are talking to him! Does he know that you guys are talking to him or understands when you are talking to the other boys? (I have a blind one-eyed cat who has no problem pretending she can see just fine!)
He does seem to understand when we are talking to him, or at least when he is getting one on one attention with sweet words and chin/ear rubs. We supplement many of his commands with signs (which, like all cats when given commands, he then chooses to follow or ignore on a whim). He has a sign for “come here,” “stop,” “down,” and “no.” We also have taken to petting him and telling him in American Sign Language, “You’re a good cat,” which looks a bit like us pointing, patting our chin, and then stroking imaginary whiskers. He seems to enjoy it, or at least, he gives us that sweet, slow blink that cats hand out when they’re feeling lovey.
Puck and Elvis even now often seem at a loss when Lupin does something they know to be against the rules, and we respond by silently signing at him frantically “Stop!” “No!” “Down!”
You’re surrounded in a house full of dudes!
My mom tends to tell my older cat Coco, “You’re my kitty, my beautiful Coco kitty, and mommy loves you very much.” Given her reaction to hearing that, my mom thinks that Coco considers that the phrase mom’s way of purring.
The great question in my house is “Who’s mommy’s pretty itty bitty baby girl?!” And I know I must ask it in the most annoying voice. And she’s 7 so she’s not really a baby.
Ain’t no shade like Lupin shade – I love Panel 4 side eyes.
That said, I do find that I prefer the less detailed but so perfectly feline expressions you coax from your characters. I think we’ve all gotten side eyes from our cats and so much of cat communication is eye/ear/claw-based that I’ve never minded that Hello Kitty has no mouf (though we now know she’s not really a cat … **insert Panel 4 here**)
Lupin “throwin’ shade”, hooo hooo. had to look that up. then
lupin cleverly positions his cup to accompany the shade with a visually resounding “NO”.
