Author commentary

Veronica: It’s pages like this when I sigh in relief that I drew this comic in pencil. Want to know a silly fact? Mike was actually MEANT to be a Russian Blue at first! But after a little more time surfing through pages and looking at cat breeds (I was trying to attach breeds to the other characters), I came across Korats.. and I thought Korats were A LOT more appropriate a breed for Mike. Korats even have really sensitive hearing.. so yeah.. but by the time I thought that was more fitting, page three was done, dialogue and all. So I erased the dialogue on a few panels and rewrote it.

Also, Daisy is the most adorable character ever. Although I feel bad because Ragamuffins are said to be particularly big cats.. and Daisy’s really small. IT’S HER REX TAKING CHARGE, that’s why she’s so small. Yeah.. YEAH. Quiet.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

Took a random cat quiz, found I was a Maine Coon. Apparently I’m “You`re just almost too lovable! Compassionate and kind, you`re the loyal and dependable figure in everyone`s life. Sometimes you have a hard time trusting strangers, but once someone gets under your skin, you`re theirs for life!” Still can’t decide if that’s me or not….

Ohh.. Once more I see those stereotypes about Russians. Every time I see reference to us, there are always ushanka and domes of the church. At least there are no bears in this page :D

Wow, Mike was supposed to be a Russian Blue.
That would have made me smile. 8-D
But to be quite honest, that wouldda been cool in my opinion.

I really like this story, but when I first saw this, I was only thinkin’ Awe Cute! Dogs and Cats in high school! Never realized it would have language, profanity, but that’s just me.
