Rosebud Welcomes Spring

cat-blog-rosebud.jpg Cathy loves this little girl. Her name is Rosebud and she’s a rescue. She fell from the back tire of a bus in Springfield, Illinois, to the horror of two women who took the 8 week old kitten to a local animal shelter. She was adopted by Teresa Gregoir, who says that Rosebud has become the “bosscat” of her two Toms at home. The affectionate Rosebud likes to roll on her back and look up as if to say: “Look at me, I’m beautiful!” She has a face to launch a thousand kits!

In the dailies, Felix is jealous of little Doris, Danny Dooit’s new love. We’ll see if the spirit of altruism hits Felix next time and he will accept Doris as a pal.

myrtle-10-11-to-10-17-48.jpg Myrtle is from 10-11 to 10-17-1948 this batch. No Hyacinth this time. I like the 10-13 as Myrtle’s Mom lolls all over the easy chair like a teenager figuring out a math problem. Bingo is funny in the 10-16 as he wears all of the necktie salesman’s product. The Sunday is a flight of fancy, as Freddie dreams that he is back in prehistoric times, complete with a dinosaur.

krazy-kat-1-18-to-1-23-43.jpg Krazy is from 1-18 to 1-23-43 on this tour through the Coconino. The first three strips are about a guard shack and a sleepy Offissa Pupp, and the final three revisit the Draft Board as Krazy tries to rob the coop by drafting eggs, including an “addled” egg and a Chinese thousand year old Duck egg. Herriman is beginning to blend his brand of nonsense with the topicality of the war.

    Rosebud is a real keeper!! Such a sweet face.

  2. That Rosebud is a real charmer and will be starring in TV ads soon! Since I have had to return to the West Coast from upstate New York to deal with my mom’s ALZ (visiting physician and hospice visits, etc.) and generally take care of stuff on the home front, I sure do miss Ulster County’s finest resident house cat, Raymond from “The Old Newman Place”. Another real charmer!
