When either Meghan or I are getting ready in the morning, Olive and Hazel must be in the room too. This is non-negotiable. We learned it the hard way one day when Meg was getting ready and Olive was sitting at the bathroom door, ripping up pieces of carpet because she couldn’t get in.
So now, we just leave the door open a little so that the cats can come and go as they please. It’s a little odd, but we like carpet on our floor instead of shredded pieces of sadness.
Being a kid in the 80’s was great. There were so many fantastic shows to watch, and of course all of the action figures that spawned them.
I had a lot favorites, but my top three were always Transformers, G.I. Joe and Thundercats. Sure they were goofy as heck, but back then, I ate it up. Thundercats was probably the silliest of them all with characters like Lion-O, Panthro and Tygra going up against the evil Mumm-ra (yeah, he was a mummy).
Maybe the show planted a seed in me that grew into my eventual love of cats. At any rate, I thought it would be the perfect costume for Olive this Halloween.
October is in full swing which means things are going to get spooooky here at CAAATS!
Once in a while, there’s a pinch of reality mixed into the strips and the idea for this one actually came to me last Christmas when our daughter Georgia received a stuffed animal that bore a striking resemblance to a real life deer. So much so that Olive tackled it to the floor and bit into it’s throat. Was she hunting? Was she protecting the family from an intruder? I guess we’ll never know.
Also, the laughing mounted deer head at the end of this strip is a nod to Evil Dead II, my favorite horror film to watch when Halloween is getting close. There’s also a lot of comedy mixed into the film, which makes it a lot of fun. The clip is a little creepy, so younger readers may want to skip it, but you can view it here if you dare.
See you next week for more spooktacular fun!
