I predict that a regualr reader will use a crop of the last two panels as an avatar.

Is she pretending to be drunk or just drunk enough to share with the fish? Or maybe it's a kind of toast to her octopus friends.

That's a good name for a cat. There's always been black cats in my family, and we've given them spooky names, but I never thought of that one. I love black cats.

I also like llamas. Put sentient space llamas in the pulp story. With names like Travis and Henry. And have some wear goggles!

Speaking of black cats, i just found a new kitten, i named it motor since the person who gave it to me said that the kitten was found in the engine after 14 kilometers... don't know how many lives that took to survive.

JasperWB
Motor...I hope the fur sticks up on its head. It needs some attitude to its coat with a name like that!

My own cats weren't too impressed by the new arrival it must be said, however it seems that they're now more scared of the little mad ball of fur than they have been of any other fully grown cat!

We had our cat discovered in our engine after a solid 1 hour+ drive. Was a bit spooky.
JasperWB 7th Jul 2012, 4:37 AM edit delete reply
JasperWB
What is it with cats and engines? The weirdest thing I found was a wasps nest in the engine. A very very pissed off wasp nest. Guess the motor isn't soothing directly next door to them.

Err...sorry that I kinda initially derailed the whole page, view. Your comic is a conversation starter even if it gets...irrelevant.

Cats are never irrelevant. They lend context to any subject!

Hmm. Agreed. And llamas. And octopi. But not dogs. Go figure on that one.

For that matter, why are squirrels cute and rats a threat?

Having squared off against a full sized rat as a little 5 y.o. kid, armed with nothing but a fireplace poker, I can promise you that a Rat is a terrorfying animal for a child!
It left all it's front teeth in the poker though, I had to pry them out of that with a pair of pliers.

Well, after beating it to death with it's own teeth. :D

Squirrels are cute, rats are not.

My cat so far survived a two floors drop (with a split upper lip), and... well, we're not really sure, but he stopped eating and drinking and he was turning green, so something with his liver.
Those, and, well, constant fights with stray cats all around the block(garden house in the middle of 13th century burg, with little to no cars around). Thing is, he's pretty huge (weighs around 6-7kg, and all muscle) and very fierce, so I'm pretty sure he's beating up everything around.

The real problem is getting him visited by the vet, since he has a very strong bite, goes for quick, deep claw strikes, enough strength in his neck to twist it and bite whoever is holding him from its back. And while he won't hurt family too much, he shows no restraint with others, and has a particular distaste for the vet.

Named him Taro. No one has ever been able to identify the citation, while it's pretty obscure.

Taro-kun?

Well, to be more clear, he's named after a cat in a book I read. It's a sort of joke, since the cat in the book was very lazily named. I made it a policy to not reveal the book, but apparently it's one of the few books from the author to not be available in English, so it might be a little too obscure for most of the world.

I think Spectre would consider being an inside Cat after all that excitement.

Always so compliant, View is, until a little demon sets his pencil alight .. and a Dark Knight he draws. XD

View is patient I'll tell you that. Its part of the reason I imagine a nice, sexy, intelligent, monotone-ish voice to most of the posts when I read them. Like we're not annoying, but we are a handful at times for poor view. We're endeared somehow.
