I think the gray makes me look distinguished.

I think it makes you look like a doofus.

I think the monkey should never stop petting me.

I’m on the doofus train.

You might want to keep that on the down low.

Wait, I think I’ve just been insultipated!

You don’t say…

My name is Inigo Dooftoya, you…uh…prepare to die!

I have a fish!

OMFSM, it’s a fish!

Please to be giving me fish.

I like fish.

Give me the fish!

 

That’s not a real fish.

Wut?

Mmmmfishiszzzzzzz…and robotzzzz

Speaking of robot, I think this R2 unit has a bad motivator.

I resent that.

I’m bored. Bored. Bored. Bored…

Dude, trying to sleep here. So, shut it.

What he said, but with extreme prejudice.

The same, with extra flounce, because I am exceptionally flouncy.

Flouncy? Is that what you call it?

I was kind of wondering that myself.

Yeah, seems more like fluffy was the word she was looking for.

You got something against fluffy?

Can we get back to the part where I got to sleep?

Oh, good…night. Zzzzzzzzzz

With thanks to Matt, Mandy, and Neil for the spare cats.

With this ceremonial sword I call our meeting to order.

Does anyone have anything to share on feline domination?

I like birbs.*

I am a birb.

More like a pterodactyl!

I could take it.

Look I are eating from feeder, like a real birb!

I think there may be something wrong with that birb.

Gosh, what was your first clue?

So that whole baby shower thing is over and done, right.

Yep, no baby here. That’s Matt and Mandy cat’s prob…blessing.

Wait just one second.

Joke’s on you.

What fresh hell is this?

Better thee than me, fuzzball.

I refuse to believe you.

Believe what you want, but the McCullough cats speak truth.

Besides, I hear babies are a delight. Wake me when you sort it out.

With thanks to Matt, Mandy and Neil for guest cats and inspiration.

Monkey, why is the house all topsy turvy?

Yeah, I was kind of wondering that myself.

Wait, did you just say “baby shower”?

He did.

Does this mean someone’s bringing us a baby!?

Because, we will convene a jury and convict you on the spot.

It’s for someone else, you say?

Oh thank Bast. Stand down everyone.

Whew.

Yeah.

Relaxing…for now. But never forget I’ve got my eye on you, monkey.

 

Big Congrats to Matt and Mandy, whose cats have so often graced these pages.

You’re not my real monkey and I don’t have to listen to you.*

You’re not my real monkey and I don’t have to listen to you.

You’re my real monkey, but I’m deaf and can’t listen to you.

You’re my real monkey, and I hate that I have to listen to you.

I like listening, but I’m not going to remember it in ten seconds. Narf.

It’s too late to say you’re not my real monkey after you fed me? Bleah!

Hey there, monkey boy, do you want to listen to me?
