Things aren’t looking good for Francesco. Will Vinnie jump in and come to the rescue? Perhaps he’ll continue to stand there and laugh. The final fate of Francesco will be decided next Friday! See you then!
A ghost story?! Where the heck did that come from?! First of all, settle down. I’m not fond of your tone. Second of all, I was watching Supernatural on Netflix one night and Sam and Dean (aren’t they handsome?) ended up in Fort Wayne, Indiana (woo-hoo, that’s where I live!) to investigate strange goings on caused by a troublesome spirit named Bloody Mary. Somehow, this got me inspired.
Now if you made it through elementary school, you’ve probably heard the legend. Go into a dark bathroom, look in the mirror and say “Bloody Mary” three times. Then a ghost comes out. Do it or you’re a chicken. BAWK, BAWK, BAAAAWK!
But what if the ghost were a cat? That’s the question that leads us to today’s strip. For the record, I realized after completion of the strip that Jerry is actually the name of the cartoon mouse, not the cartoon cat, but this is a free webcomic, so you can’t get too worked up about details like that.
Okay, so Vinnie’s resume is … lacking a little something in certain areas. But you have to give him some credit; it’s brief, it’s to the point and it’s honest. As a toy rat, Vinnie does do things. He gets beaten up by cats each day, he lays motionless on the floor for hours whenever he’s not being pummeled and … well, that’s about it, but it’s something.
So a while back (before the Easter shenanigans), Georgia boinked Olive on the head with a toy giraffe. Now Olive is throwing one of her own toys back and the results are slightly underwhelming. And yes, this actually happened in our house one time. I guess stuff’s always flying through the air with two crazy cats and a toddler around.
