Fantastic! Although I cried when the cats weren’t allowed in the house…
Arabella – I am sorry you cried – it was a very difficult for Mrs. Grumpy too – she does like cats – but is so allergic to them that it takes about 3 years for the sneezing to stop when a new cat is introduced to the house. She felt very mean.
Absolutely wonderful! Great story, wonderful photos, and a truly dire poem (in the nicest possible sense!).
Thank you for taking part in LAPCPADPOUB day!
Hi Happy M. Thank you for inventing LAPCPADPOUB day – I expect James AS is writhing in agony as we speak (although jolly nice of him to offer a prize). Thank you for the wonderful compliment about my dire poem – the hours of tweaking and editing that went into it – you would not believe (lol :) )
Your comics are always good for a giggle or two and this one is no exception but, like the sock, I did cry a bit about the cats that were left in the cold. snif.
Your 2 girls Magenta and Riff Raff look gorgeous, I’m sure you miss them as cats bring such happiness and fun.
Your d*g looks vastly improved after that head transplant!
BTW my post is up too, don’t forget to bring a bucket!
Hi Yolanda – your comment made me laugh – but your post made me laugh even more!
My dog (obviously) preferred his head before the transplant. Although he is quite a cat-like dog – as when he was a puppy we had 4 cats – and he was number 5 in the pecking order – Magenta ruled the house.
Very funny comic Karen. I bet Merlin is thrilled with that picture – you could hang it up beside his bed.
Hi Easygardener – Merlin has been a bit quiet all day today – I think he may be a tinsy bit upset with me for trying to disguise him as a cat. But I might print in out and hang it in the loo :)
Thanks for visiting.
Sadly Whiskey went to join his step-siblings in kitty heaven earlier this year, but I have told Celi that she is now famous! She forgives you for not letting her in the house. After all, Shed Man did build them a luxary pen to stay in!
Do I buy Merlin dog or cat treats at Christmas?
As to the poem, very accurate. I admit it is the worst thing about cats. Weeding gloveless and finding something you would rather not have.
Hi Dobby – Yes they did have a rather wonderful pen – which given the state of our roof – they were probably drier than we were! ;)
Dog treats please – Merlin is not best happy with me after this comic.
I’m sure, if you hadn’t mentioned it, we would never have known your cat is a dog.
I like the poem. It seems accurate rather than sentimental.
(As I was writing these last two sentences, I heard strange noises in the kitchen. I ignored them at first, then went to investigate. A black cat, which has nothing to do with me, was tramping about on top of the cooker. Now I have stinging hands. (I clapped unnecessarily hard as I chased it away.))
P.S. I like the brackets in your comic. E.M.
Hi Esther – Oh – I shouldn’t of mentioned that Merlin was a dog if you thought it was a good disguise :(
Fancy that – a cat visiting you on Lapbaap – whatever day – you should of quickly photographed it
Thanks for visiting
Thanks for cheering me up on “Monday back to work after a week off “. Just what I needed.
And a very strange thing – I walked into the kitchen this evening and there was a black cat sitting on the washing machine…[my neighbour’s new kitten and it left lots of mucky pawprints].
Perhaps there’s a black cat sub-culture we know nothing about…
My poor old pooch Minnie would have seen it off at speed when she was still around!
Hi Chris – I got really confused there for a minute YOU had a visit from a black cat as WELL as Esther – ummmm spooky! Glad you had a good break – and that you found the comic cheerful
Thanks for dropping in.
