Thursday Thirteen #11 - Hallmarks of Felinity

My husband turned me on to this fun comic called 9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney. The reason I like this comic is not the story line, because I don’t keep up on it, although it is fun. The reason I love this comic is the cat, Solange. Every so often Brooke does a strip name Hallmarks of Felinity, in which Solange features, sometimes solely, sometimes with the other characters as “props” so to speak, but basically each of these strips is something that most cat owners/lovers can relate to about our furry friends. Husband will often send these to me at work (he does keep up on the comic, so while he’s waiting on test scripts to run, he’s reading web comics, hmmm…) when he comes across them. I’ve gathered together 13 here, though there are MANY more! He’s even come up with a book of them, and that’s far from all of them as well, I hope he does another book! Someone has collected many of them HERE for our easier viewing pleasure, though I think it’s pretty outdated, still, there are nearly 200 of them there, and that’s plenty! ;)

So here we go, Solange, in Hallmarks of Felinity! I started at the beginning and just skipped around to the first 13 that made me snicker out loud. Just click on the thumbnail to be taken to the larger version.
