Patches being a smart ass...
In German language it's much more funny (in my opinion) because there's quite a difference between "dasselbe" und "das gleiche" and you have to be careful not to mess it up. Kiki apparently does and uses "dasselbe", which means her pan IS also Patches pan. German can be mean. I have no idea if it's still funny in English- I hope so. Sharing is not their strong point.

Apparently I have the same odd situation at home. We have three litter boxes for two cats and both always want to use only one and the same  (ignoring the other two wholeheartly) which causes constantly drama.

I think you're right. The comic is probably funnier in German. I think the joke got lost in translation. I still found it cute though.

Hahaha, how well do I know problems like these xD Patches is brilliant, because there's really not much you can when you hear something like that. You know Patches is right but at the same time you feel Kiki's pain, since she really doesn't want to agree with this simple logic. But at the same time fighting about it further is pointless, 'cause it's just how it is... It reminds me a little bit of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory and his "you're in my spot" comments ^^ All in all - a really funny comic page. Plus the first two frames are simply awesome. I always liked such messy doodles like the ones on the wall behind the armchair, they always seem to have life of their own.

As for your own litter boxes drama. Have you ever tried removing the one both of your cats use to see how they would react? Or would something like that just cause more problems?

Have you ever seen two cats looking at a magically invisible box? Hantje was even more confused when it was not there. I think the only problem she had was that it was not clean when she wanted to use it.
You can basically clock them by their routines. The only thing I "had to work on" was changing Hantje's routine for her "poo time". It meant cleaning the box, chasing Han, setting Han into the box, waiting (even if she didn't want to do anything in the box), cleaning up, praising Han.
That transferred into "Girl's time in the bathroom when the thumbs get home" (it's me sitting on the toilet seat and Hantje rolling around mewing...), Han running to the box (girl's time is used by hubby cleaning box), droppin the stink bomb and getting praised. I know it's manipulative but she does it now on her own and accidents only happen when we're away all day and night and Tretel decided to use "her" box as well. For being a little psycho cat she does well. She's really sensitive but I don't mind her being complicated as long as I find a way to work with her. That potty problem was actually easier solved than Tretel learning "give paw". XD

My youngest cat Luna will always use my tubby grey cat's litter tray, and I have no idea why. Maybe Teddy's tray must smell better or something, which is odd considering his pee stinks :lol:

Ah, this happens all the time with my two. The older cat always uses the same box and won't even step in the other one, but the younger cat does not discriminate when choosing where she will potty!

:XD: I can only imagine the older one's sour face when it's time to make a trip to the box and it's not clean.

She has us well trained. :D She simply finds the nearest human and gives the most pitiful mew she has. Most of the time this results in the human dropping what they are doing to clean out the box - and avoid her choosing to relieve herself next to the box instead of in it!

it's still pretty great in english, but I imagine the german version to be cool, too :)

I don't understand the question. If you're asking how many books I illustrated/did tha are published it's 5.... 3 Tokyopop, 2 MacMillan. This one with the comics is "in the making" and unfinished.
