Well, finally getting around to introducing other characters.
I had fun drawing this one, but the lettering was a bitch. Trying to lay it out made me realize just how bad at it I am. The font size in previous strips has probably been much larger than necessary. It's a little smaller this time, but there's more dialogue here than usual and it quickly became smooshed. Well, anyway, sorry if it's difficult to read. That's on my list of things to improve upon (along with singing in key and marmot wrangling).

I had some requests here for a URL [link] that would always display the most recent comic - the lackadaisy web site now has the brains to do this.
Thanks !!!

Is what Miss M said about tragedy a quote from something? 'Cause that's beautiful

You put so much work into a comic you give away for free. That never ceases to amaze me :)

In the next-to-last panel, I like the way you drew his right paw, showing it curve like that and showing it's actually a 3-dimensional thing, most would have simply drawn it as 2-D and let it go at that. No wonder your work's so good, attention to things like that.

Perils of Pauline...oh dear. I'm surprised he survived. And yet he's still got a smile on his face. I like this guy. "You know how much you frighten the elderly" LOL.

I love you style so much. It's so very vintage and so entertaining to look at. And best of all ITS KITTIES!!!

ohmygod. You metioned the "Perils of Pauline" *spazzes* my great-great-aunt was Puline's stuntwoman. *spazzes* I'm sorry. That just excites me to hear it mentioned. >w<

Rocky is just really lovable! The way he is positive with misfortune (or at least it looks like that). and Miss M's humour is great!

"As far as reading material goes, the Ledger is too depressing. I've decided to read the Obituaries instead."



I really need to write this stuff down.

I bet this could make a great play.

Just replace the cat people with real people, and you got a great play.

i'm very impressed by the quality and the creativity of the concept using cats instead of people.
