This is why you don't see a lot of kitties in those animated princess movies.
Happy New Year!
What do you do on New Year's Eve?
My most memorable one was Vic and I watching a spelling bee documentary in a small room I was renting in San Diego. See how exciting I am?!
See you next year!

Just wanted to sneak in a few words ‘til I sign off for vaca.
I started this blog mostly because I was burnt out, to put it frankly. I design stuff for a living, and it can be pretty intense at times, as “fun” a job as it sounds. And often times I find being in the company of the people and pets I love most enjoyable. My cats have always been a source of entertainment and comfort for me. They are my best friends (because none of my people friends invite me for dinner anymore. Haha!). And I often find myself doodling them. You would think that having another thing to illustrate would be stressful. It is actually the opposite. I look forward to making each comic for this blog, and I wish I had more time to post one every day instead of one to two times a week.
What I found interesting is that I get to meet a LOT of you cat people. Sometimes I wonder if I’m going crazy because some people think that I’m too obsessed with my cats. There are so many of you who take a bit of time to share your stories with me through email, through comments and through FB. It’s makes me feel good to know that many of you love cats as much as I do. So yay! I’m not the only person whose cat sleeps on her face, or “walks” her cat in the yard or lets her cat drink from her cupped hands under a trickling faucet!
Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas! See you next week.

It's supposedly a fact!
My dog Puppy cannot play catch. I'll throw something and he won't pay attention to it. He knows how to sit though, but that's pretty much it. I think he can lay down too, but it didn't work last time I told him to.
My cats Money and Wonky Kitten can play catch though. I'll throw Money's fuzzy green pouf and he'll quickly run after it and drop it close to me. He also loves to play this game where he'd bat his pouf under the oven and he'd try to fish it out. If he can't get it from the front, he'll climb to the back of the oven and reach for it there. If that fails, I reach for it for him. Then he'll do it over and over and over again. He's in love with that little gnarly thing.
