Ice, Ice Baby!

Welcome back,

Now how’s that for a bitch of an ear worm? I know you are already hating me for that one but just think of the loathing you will feel when Vanilla Ice is still running through your head at 4am tomorrow morning. No need to thank me.

So I guess we have time for a bit of shameless self promotion before hitting you with today’s comedic gem- I have a guest comic up at Milton’s Life which is well worth seeing if I do say so myself.

Ways to Skin a Cat #72: The freeze and smash.

Don’t you just love it?

Thanks for stopping by.


It’s as plain as your nose ring.

Bonjour, bonjour, bonjour.

Hope you are feeling the sap rising through your bones as Spring kicks into gear. I know I am- a day without need for jacket or scarf?! It’s enough to put a smile on the face of any man. And speaking of smiles on faces I’ve just been told that I am uncool for using the emoticon :-) I should be using :D who knew? I was, however, introduced to a great emoticon called Clyde (though I think it looks like Derren Brown in a bowler hat) 


I can think of no practical application for it but it’s nice none the less.

Anyhoo here’s the latest comic for you all-

The Punk Panther


I know I hinted that I was working on something great on Tuesday, and while it would please me to think that you assumed it was this comic, I’m afraid I’m going to  make you wait a bit longer for the real thing.

Thanks for stopping by.


The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind.

What ho!

Well I don’t know about you, but I feel like a little more cruelty to animals:

Ways to Skin a Cat #85: The Wind Tunnel.

That’s the way to do it.



P.S. Is it just me or have these posts got a lot lazier in recent weeks? Ah bugger it, you only really come for the comics anyway!

Toight like a Toyger.


It’s another cat breed for you all today; the adorably named ‘Toyger’. Initially I was tempted to simply draw Hobbes but I figured that was a bit too easy, then I was going to repost the photo of the real Jeff that Jody made for me, but again that seemed too easy. So instead I used Jeff as inspiration and did this:

Cat Breeds of the World #2: The Toyger.


Oh what the hell- here’s the real Jeff again anyway:

The real Jeff.

Thanks for stopping by.


Fire it up! Fire it up! Fire it up!

Bonjour et bienvenue.

So glad you are here to join me for Catatonic #299. That’s right 299! And it seems like far too long since we skinned a cat doesn’t it?

Ways to skin a cat #37: En Flambe.

So there you go. I’ll see you on Sunday for #300!

Thanks for stopping by.


Wow, nearly missed a post!

Happy New Year you beautiful creatures.

So yeah, nearly didn’t post at all- been a mad weekend and blah blah blah, so: sorry about that. I know some of you can’t function with a break to your strict schedules, well it is still Sunday so don’t go throwing your poop at the walls just yet!

"Don't play with him; he's a cheetah."

Ah, the old ones are certainly… old.

Anyhoo, I am going on holiday for two weeks and will, I’m afraid, be out of reach of a computer so this will be the last post until Tuesday 18th January. My God that sounds a hell of a long way away written down. Try not to miss me too much, and to my OCD followers: Start flinging!

Thanks for stopping by.


11 plus: sounds like a cut off point for Catholic Priests.

Good morning to you and you and you.

I hope the day finds you in good spirits with the hope of drinking better ones.

Animal Testing.

Class dismissed, but, as ever, thanks for stopping by.



Hi diddly howdy hi ho to you all,

So we did it-365 days, 205 posts and 278 glorious cat based funnies! Is that not just the cat’s pyjama’s or what?

Well we’ve alot to get through today so lets waste no time- first up an amazing guest comic from the brilliant Tom Buddle. Let me hand you over to the man himself:

I would like to point out that despite the content of this “comic” I am in fact a cat owner and lover. This is simply an attempt to derive humour from one of the only words left in the English language Ben has not all ready done a funny off of.
Thanks for stopping. Bye!

How amazing is that!! Thanks again, Buddle.

But that’s not all, oh no- here’s a wondrous birthday gift from the insanely talented Paul Loudon:

Wowzers, right? Cheers Paul.

But today’s is a post that keeps on giving with this little Fan Art gem from Andy:

My TV is a Catatonic

 Sweet! Ta muchly, sir.

And here’s my strip of the day:

Cat on heat.

And as an extra special treat if you click here I’ll show you the development of this cartoon from sketchbook to blog!

How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

Now this has been a very busy year for me as I have not only been drawing Catatonic I have also created My TV is Evil and modern life is awesome as well as designing a couple of posters and opening night cards along the way. It has been a lot of work but I can honestly say I’ve never been happier.

Here’s to many years to come. Thank you again to Tom, Paul and Andy for their contributions to today’s post and to Lou for the Staedtler Triplus Color Pens that have added that extra dimension to my cartoons. Thank you to everyone who has commented on the blog and bouyed my sense of worth as well as improved the jokes. But most importantly:

Thanks to YOU for stopping by.


I hope I see you again soon.

London Calling.

Bonjour et bien venue.

Well I made it back ‘Daan Saaarf’ and in the process proved beyond any doubt that coaches, for me,  are no longer an option. Perhaps it is with age that I no longer wish to compromise on comfort but whatever it is I’m more than happy with it. That’s right, my friends; at the age of 30 and three quarters I have come to the decision that, no matter how good a saving it seems, I no longer travel by coaches for long trips! Add to that my refusal to stay in hostels when on holiday and we see that my transition into middle age is running along smoothly.

Terrible is the plight of the Melon skinned wombat.

Howdy y’all,

Kitty Litter

That will be all.
