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!

Why the hell isn’t Rachel dating that guy? I mean assuming he isn’t taken or a jerk (she obviously invited him). He’s a cat, which she likes, and looks friendly and presentable and is not totally in love with someone else like Paulo is.

He also lacks the immaturity that Paulo has, at least in his face.

I’m rooting for her to end up with this guy supporting her and her dumping Paulo.

Abbey looks like he’s had enough. I can’t blame him, what with the girl of his admiration revealing that she still has feelings for a guy he doesn’t always see eye to eye with.

@Jessebell *phew* I’m not the only one! It’s the “anime wink” that’s extra-cute, I think. Jess is looking good there too!

Cake makes everything better!

This guy is a party crasher who probably doesn’t even know who Rachel is. At least he’s a happy sort of guy, so far.

Daisy is probably an excellent dancer… :love:

Two pages ago I had the weirdest feeling that the black and white cat and the chocolate lab were Rachel’s parents for some reason. Im pretty sure thats not the case, but if so, damn that would make an amusing family.

I think the whole sky thing was to show Mike left.

Ral December 4, 2013, 2:00 PM EST.

Comment ID #269229

So I guess that last panel on the previous page was indicating that Mike must have left while everyone was preoccupied with Rachel and her cake. I could be wrong but that’s what I think it is.

Wondering why Sue is making that face?

I guess Mike left the party. One of my fears in these comics have come true (many have come true). I hope nothing of what I said in a previous comment happens (unless where I said that he might go sit by the tree he and Lucy used to hang around).

Hmmmmm. The black and white cat and Daisy seem happy in the last panel. Not sure with Amaya. Sue looks hostile and Paulo looks like he doesn’t know what he’s doing. I don’t like the look on Abbeys face D:

Sue’s face. Sue’s face! Susan’s face…

She’s trippin balls, man.

You’re all mistaking his age from his figure. The “older kids” are kids from Rachel’s grade, making them just a year older than Mike, Paulo, Sue ect. But this guy just seems a little heavyset. I don’t understand why just being one year younger makes them kids to everyone else.

Follarch December 4, 2013, 4:52 PM EST.

Comment ID #269258

Something I just noticed too, he’s the only one of the “older kids” who’s a guy, all the rest of them are either girls or too blurry/in the background to tell. Methinks something is amiss with this skunk-colored fellow. Sue looks pretty suspicious of him, and she’s a pretty clever little lady…

Also, to me Abbey looks like he is concentrating REALLY HARD on dancing…

This guy looks like a fun guy. XD I wonder if he’ll get a name and more of a role? And for those saying he’s not taken and/or is a party-crasher, how do you know? He’s only shown up in this chapter, we have no idea if he’s dating that chick that gave Paulo a drink or not, and I’m pretty dang sure all present are invited.

Also, his emphasis on “fun” and “birthday party” indicates that the older kids saw the drama, decided to get the cake ready, and then waited until things had…calmed down somewhat before they called her name. ‘Cause WHY THE HECK ARE YOU GUYS HAVING DRAMA AT HER BIRTHDAY PARTY?!

Also, the “where’s Lucy” people, why are you even asking that? She’s not at the party, she never was. She’s not going to magically appear just because they talked about her like Voldmort, okay? I miss her too, but try to be patient and wait for Taeshi to reveal her again in her own time. She wouldn’t have them talk about her and then leave us hanging for chapters. (Would she?)

Beautiful page, Taeshi, love the conflicting expressions on everyone. ^^

Either the next page will have some more dancing or have Mike. My guessing is more dancing. After the next page there might come something about Mike. Or maybe the next page after the next page might be more dancing, and then comes Mike. Just wanted to share my expetations with you that’s all. Just wanted to do that in case your wondering about Mike (which obviously many are not ._.)

The black and white cat looks like a happy couch potato to me XD. He looks a little older then the rest of the folks. Looks can be decieving though :O. I really hope that he doesn’t become a major character (more like just some friend of Rachel), although if he is supposed to become one then I hope he becomes one of Paulo’s friend. He could use some more friends (male that is to say) then just David :/.

Comment ID #269278

haha, now that’s a good guy right there. Seriously though, what’s up with all the older kids seeming to be these sage type characters always saying or doing something just at the right moment to bring clarity or just sound judgement to a situation. I mean I get that the idea is that they’re older as such have more experience. So far we’ve seen Tess, Rachel, and now this dude. All three have stepped in and done something to kind of level things out.

I mean you can’t deny that this dude’s line “Just a guy who’s having FUN at my friend’s BIRTHDAY PARTY” was a shot at all these kids ‘harshing the vibe’ as it were.

Twist: skunk colored cat is Rachel’s big gay guy friend.

Or else in an on again off again relationship with rachel. They seem like they’d be a cute couple…

I really want them to get together. He seems like he knows how to handle things like Rachel.

I’m gonna be amused if they’re in an open relationship, Rachel has Paulo and kitty guy has a dog lady.

Or else it’s completely platonic, sibling friendship. Yeah.

I’m so confused. If Rachel is this coordinated after what appeared to be multiple bottles of beer, then how many drinks did she and Paulo have when they went to the nightclub a few chapters ago? Must have been some pretty powerful stuff…

Well thats exactly what we need! Some bittersweet disco fever! And look! There’s Paulo doing the drunken Macarena! Right next to the old guy who thinks the cabbage patch is still “groovy”!

Were you in the European country Georgia or were you in the American state Georgia??

Just wondering.

@Lyrix I doubt that Mike would go throw up in Rachels bathroom. I think he would rather go throw up in his own bathroom. He wouldn’t want to trouble Rachel (or anyone) with anything :(.

I hope he’ll be alright though

Seems that Rachel has a wide social circle, unlike those whiny kids. It´s like a breath of fresh air. It explains the composed and open attitude of hers (about sex and about social relationships). Princess (it´s her birthday) don´t pursue Paulo , he´s not into you, he´s into drama queens.
Of course, you like the devotion he shows (and I admit he´s a quirky, cute wannabe macho) for Lucy , so tragic. Unless you do only for the kick of it…
I think Rachel in this chapter plays a motherly figure. She´s a little more mature than the gang. The way she put Mike to sit at Paulo´s side, shows she´s got a keen eye about the gang dinamics. Ah, if Paulo could get over Lucy, he could have fun with… but c´mon he blew it with Jasmine. He needs a closure of sorts with Lucy.

Comment ID #269303

@Whinnie: He didn’t blow it with Jasmine, he maturely chose to end it with Jasmine because he felt being with her was wrong when he was only thinking of Lucy. :/

SHE then got quite mad and grumpy about it later and then SHE destroyed any chance of them getting back together even though Paulo didn’t want to get back together in the first place, he just wanted to be friends with her.
