For some reason, Tali finds the tumble dryer to be fascinating, avidly watching its many cycles and spins. Personally, I don’t see the appeal but compared to a lot of TV programmes nowadays, I think Tali has the right idea.
My second Thought Bubble was even more fun than my first thanks to good friends, good comics, good food and questionable dancing (not by me…) The train journey back from Leeds I could do without (hence the comic being a day late,) but Tali welcomed me home the best way she could.
Thank you to everyone who came by my table too. It was nice to talk to others who are so keen on cats!
I like to have documentaries on in the background while I work as it makes tedious work more bearable and naturally, Tali likes to watch too. Especially the ones with small furry animals in. Her eyes are glued to the screen if ever a squirrel saunters by.
Tomorrow is Guy Fawkes night where British skies are filled with colourful explosions and the smell of burning effigies but not everyone find the whole thing quite so enjoyable. Don’t forget your feline friends who may be scared of all the noise and to help, I’ve made this handy guide.
If you want to play games with a cat, you should probably let them wake up first.
I’ve always wanted to make a calendar. So I did! Taking 12 Diary Comics and a whole lot of numbers, the 2014 Eat, Sleep, Sniff Calendar can now be pre-ordered from my shop. As soon as they’re back from the printers (estimated w/c November 4th) they’ll be posted out.
I think Tali must have magical fur because depending on the day, her colour goes from shades of brown to shades of grey. It’s made drawing and colouring her a bit tricky. I bet she does it on purpose…
I wanted to do something a bit special with the latest compilation book of my Diary Comics so I’ve put together somewhat of a bumper collection. Simply called Book 3, it’s an 88 pager full of comics, 64 of which are all my Diary Comics from July 2012 to October 2013, 4 pages of Tali. A Day In Her Life and a brand new 6 page mini comic called Doctor Dumblittle staring me, my wife and Tali.
If you would like a copy plus personalised doodle inside, Book 3 can now be ordered from my shop for £7.
So after some time away from my little cat, naturally I was excited to see her and thought the feeling would be mutual. It wasn’t.
On an unrelated note, keep an eye out everyday this week around lunchtime as I have a number of new items coming to my shop and will be posting about them starting from tomorrow. The Happiness Is Just A Hug Away cards are now available too!
Not long ago my wife and I visited Scotland and loved the mountainous scenery. However, being an overly sentimental kind of guy, I kept thinking that something was missing - Tali!
Sometimes Tali stretches her back legs for a bit too long, dragging herself along the ground like some kind of hairy slug. Thank God she doesn’t produce slime too…
When Tali really goes to town on her scratch post there is the odd occasion where her claw gets caught. And even more of an odd occasion is when she very quickly gives up from trying to free herself and instead takes a nap. Daft little thing!
As excited I am to become a Dad, another cat would have been pretty cool…
Happy anniversary to my lovely wife (for last Friday)!
