Smudge Had a Rough Night

I told him not to stay up for the Iowa results, but would he listen? Noooooo.

(I sent this picture to Krissy this morning and she immediately called to see if he was okay. He’s fine. I just caught him in an awkward moment.)

  1. “Wait till he watches the State of the Union.”

    Given the likely hairballs that Smudge would use to express his opinion, I’m not sure I’d encourage him watching the SOTU.

  2. jeffsoesbe – I write science fiction and fantasy stories. I also am a software engineer at a subsea robotics company, run math contests, coach a middle school math team, exercise, and occasionally play Australian Rules Football

    Agree with “Not the Reddit Chris S” – that is one of the most “Bill The Cat” (from Bloom County) poses I’ve ever seen a cat in. Well captured, sir.

  3. Uh-oh, Iowa’s coming in. Brace yourselves–the Bernie-conspiracy machine and the Warren-hater misogyny machine are revving their engines.

  4. So, you know how you were recently texting with other family members about how Smudge was being a noisy brat in the middle of the night? You probably don’t even want to think about what he’s going to do tonight for posting that photo of him.

    All I’m saying is that it would be a really good idea to lock your office door, your closet door, and make sure that all your shoes are safely stored in locking cabinets. It is extremely unpleasant to put on a shoe and then discover that your cat has used the shoe as his latrine.

    Not that I would know from personal experience, of course.

  5. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word 🤬 I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. Reading transports me to places that are inaccessible to me right now. Whether those places address in space or in areas I'm unable to travel, I am grateful for books and authors who keep my mind occupied. I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night.

    Dude! Way too much catnip!

  6. I’m trying to think of what he could possibly have been doing to land at that “awkward moment,” if it *didn’t* involve ‘nip, chewing through wires, or watching Homo sapiens Americanus Republicanus devolve into traitor-worshipping tools.

    About all I can come up with is he was having a bit of a wash and found something in his fur that tasted really, really bad.

  7. Hey Smudge looks like a couple of the Democrat candidates who made it past Iowa. Squint a little.

    I did see references to the 2030 xkcd strip elsewhere, and it is quite accurate. Unfortunately time has caught up with the strip’s first frame, and Boeing engineers are coming out of the woodwork.

    ROTFL! That is one of the rare times I’ve seen a cat look like that — Bill the Cat aside, of course….
