For all the Strunk and White fans out there, the cat owns his or her indifference.

If you're going to do a ridiculously thin post, at least have the decency to link to the proper page.

If this cartoon had captions:

"What am I going to do about Marsha?"
"What am I going to do about my job?"
"What am I going to do about having to go see my parents?"

CAT enters.

CAT: "Why are you pooping in my Magic Water hole?"

Strangely, my cat does care. I close the bathroom door now because he will bite my legs if I don't.

You know that odd dance that bees do when they find a good source of pollen and want to let the rest of the hive know? My cat does that when I am taking a leak.

Walks up to the toilet, turns, shakes his little cat butt vigorously, turns, repeat. Nothing comes out of him, although sometimes I piss on his tail by accident.

Cats.

I once lived with a cat that would paw angrily at the door if you DIDN'T let him in to visit while you were doing your business.

Animals
by David Byrne and Talking Heads

I'm mad
And that's a fact
I found out
Animals don't help
Animal think
They're pretty smart
Shit on the ground
See in the dark.

I know the animals
Are laughing at us
They don't even know
What a joke is
I won't follow
Animal's advice
I don't care
If they're laughing at us.

Yep. My cats both peer under the door and stick their paws under it, or meow plaintively until you come out. Doors are not supposed to be shut. My mom, who has witnessed this, says that they act just like us when we were two years old. Except, you know, as cats instead of humans.

I don't have a cat so I don't have any funny stories about what happens when I do something and then my cat does something funny in response to that thing I did and then I tell people about it on the internet.

I have no amusing cat anecdote to comment about in lieu of discussing the link.

I always bring something to read and just ignore the cat. They hate that.

Okay...what's the best part about marrying a panda bear?

Glad to see this comic is getting a post to the front page, if small. A lot of his stuff is simple and hardhitting. The humor is great, but there are also more serious diary-esque ones. The archives are short, and I highly recommend them.

It's funny 'cause it's true.

I like to this that the door was closed and locked, and the cat's been in there the whole time.

Kind of puts a nice bow on the whole package.

That's exactly what my cat does. When my pants are at my ankles like that, he likes to crawl into them and lay there. When I want to get up & chase him out, he gets mad.

My enjoyment of the cartoon is not about the cat. I love the off center originality of the artist. Im a cartoonist from "not the old school.".but between conventional and wacked out
I love to see innovations . Thanks for leading me to this guy's site.
Im now working on a new character "Mitzi The Attack Poodle"(this isnt a commercial plug Pepsi thing) Im shooting for a new direction with her psychopathic violence and anarchy.

True, but accidentally move your foot a twentieth of an inch and they will bolt from the room - via your face - as if stabbed with a hot poker.

Terrific comic strip. Thanks for the link!

But the cat does care. Concerned because it heard no movement in the bathroom, it ventured in to check on Mr. No-Fiber-in-the-Diet.

This comic gets even better when I play Casiotone for the Painfully Alone along with it.

Brian Posehn has a story about how his wife was once using the facilities, and the facilities had no door because it was an as-yet unfinished house. Their puppy ran right in there. And licked her area.

posted by fancyoats at 7:59 AM on March 9, 2009


Our cats used to do this kind of thing all the time untill we decided to use the bathroom as an area to quarantine some small finches before we put them in our big kitty-proof cage. If a cat manages to get in, he'll wander around just thrilled to be in the forbidden room until one of the birds flutters its wings and then it becomes a draw between the desire to stay in the room with you as a captive audience to provide him ear scratching, or the urge to get right up to that little cage and terrorize some birdies.

Oddly, scratches almost always win out.

Tell that to Mitten - the instant way to get her to scram my wife and I want to fool around is to break wind. Which also makes said wife no longer interested.

Cats always win.

My cat does this, but then as soon as I flush the toilet, she bolts as if the giant water monster was coming after her. Every day she stares down her demon... and loses.
posted by grapefruitmoon at 12:13 PM on March 9, 2009


this is cute. and I enjoyed his playing around with color, e.g. Some of them are funny and some are a little too self-consciously ... hipsterish/ sarcastic...
I feel like I've seen stuff he's drawn before, though I don't remember where exactly. I bet he could do a pretty good graphic novel though.
posted by mdn at 2:33 PM on March 9, 2009


All four of my cats do this. And the dog.

Yes, it gets crowded.
