As a person with a cat named Elvis, I approve.

Site seems to be down, though Google's got a number of pages cached.

The comics don't seem to be related to Funny or Die's version, which is more of a Buzzfeed/CNN.com parody with photos.

The making-the-bed one hits close to home ... it is the signature event in our daily Georgelympics.

The bed was perfect, now you've ruined it.

That's the reason our bed typically isn't made until just before we get into it at night.

I was very upset when I learned that my new cat didn't care if I made the bed or not. She's taking half the fun out of cat ownership!

Every single one of these is true to my life with 3 cats. I even image my guys saying, "nope nope nope!" whenever I get the vacuum out.

My Mom dated a guy in the 70's who would vacuum his cat. The cat loved it.

These are adorable.

We don't often lose cat toys any more, as miss Susu pitchounette is a talented cat toy archaeologist, undeterred by two-inch-tall spaces and sneezing fits caused by dustbunnies.

Like illicit drugs, vacuums in the 70s were not as strong as today's vacuums. Just because we vacuumed our cats without harm doesn't mean that you can do so safely today.

in an hour, i have a student from India coming over to do some work and she's terrified of my tiny, geriatric cat. The cat loves the student. It makes for some pretty cat-com moments.

Do you have any plans for that bacon?

I swear on all that is right and true, this is has been transcribed, verbatim, from my own kitchen. Which is a little weird, because we only have one cat. One persistent, gabby, loudmouthed cat.

Also, it appears that the author has a blog, and has done a couple of other webcomics in the past.

Oh, the pineapple disappointment. Despite the fact that we switched to pop-top cat food cans probably ten years ago, to this day at least one of the two sixteen-year-olds often shows up when the can opener is used on tomatoes.

I have trained my cats to the sound of running water in the sink meaning food because, very occasionally, it does. This means I only ever wash my dishes with the cats at my feet, staring mournfully at me.

My favorite part is the cats referring to their owners as "the woman" and "the man".

I imagine this is how all cats see their "handlers"

The People Have Gone Insane

"Hello everyone! Georgia Dunn here! This particular strip is very true–Elvis, Puck, Lupin, the Man, and I are moving this week! Unfortunately, this means my paints, scanner, laptop etc will all be packed away and I won’t be able to update BREAKING CAT NEWS for 1-2 weeks."

I agree with Puck: I DO NOT CARE FOR THIS TURN OF EVENTS.
