Leslie’s kitten is the horrific offspring of Choo-Choo Bear of Something*Positive and Sprinkles of Girls With Slingshots.
It absorbs the nutrition.
I KNEW IT.
AWWW she takes after her Daddy
Awww.. kitty has her daddy’s colour AND abilities…. how cute…
This cat is very social for not hiding in a corner for days in the new home.
Not all cats take that long. My cat took a few hours to own hide under the bed, then cried, got lonely and came out to play with me. So, while it doesn’t necessarily take days, I’d say it is surprising that she didn’t dart straight for a safe spot.
That should be “took a few hours to own the house”. It makes a little more sense like that.
when i got my kitten it only took a few minutes and had crwled into my lap started purring then fell asleep.
Kittens are soooooooo cuuuuuuuute!
My recently acquired kitten just hopped out of her carrier and began searching around, then attacked the nearest toy. She never hid. Actually for the first few days she refused to leave my side, or at least the room I was in. But one might characterize her as very social.
Excellent. Kitty even has the yellow speech bubble.
#dumbingofage nightstar.net, dude!
Is there a setting that will send me an email when someone replies to a comment I make?
D’aww, just like papa.
it’s eating it!
and then it’s going to eat me!
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD
XDXD Niiiiiiiiiiiiice. That’s one of the funniest Troll 2 references EVER!
@ awwwwe at the comic. I want a Choo-Choo silly-putty kitty!
Dude, SO CUTE. /makes mewling noises
I adore the thought of readers who have never read Something*Positive now going “What the heeeeeeeeell”.
You are in luck then my friend.
Because that was my audible comment upon seeing this.
Then I laughed because “lol random”
I’ve read it and my reaction was still: Kitty is eldritch horror.
Mine was more along the lines of “Whiskey Tango Foxing Foxtrot?!”
Yeah, that was pretty much my reaction.
Aw, that’s disturbingly cute.
THAT IS AWESOME!!!!
Eww. And LOL. this is a reference to something?
Something POSITIVE, in fact!
I admit. I laughed….
Um…and the kitty itself is from Girls With Slingshots. The father of the kitty is, yes, from Something Positive, but the mother is from GWS, and those of us from THERE have been watching this litter for some time.
I’m sorry, but what the crap?
The kitten’s father, Choochoobear of the webcomic Something Positive, is like a cat version of T-1000. He can stretch like he’s made of silly putty and eat like this.
This is why webcomic crossovers suck.
No, you just need to widen your horizon and stop being a stick in the mud, I was reading S*P way before short packed, and its a very awesome crossover. So shut it or go read S*P THEN your aloud to voice your opinion.
The crossover was on Thursday. This is me introducing a new character. In fact, it’s much funnier if you have no knowledge whatsoever of Something Positive. And that’s by design, as I don’t expect my readers to read both. This is an intentional WTF.
But if you wanna get all pissy anyway, be my guest. I’ve learned over and over again the only difference between some folks being happy or those same folks being pissy is the knowledge that something is a crossover. It could be the most completely unobtrusive or minor reference which still totally makes sense without the “insider” knowledge, but once they know that there was a crossover, BAM! SO ANGRY. SO SO VERY ANGRY. CROSSOVERS SUCK!!! It’s like a five-year-old who’s enjoying his spaghetti until his mom tells him there’s onions in it. NO LIKE ONIONS!!!! HATE SPAGHETTI NOW!!! RARRGH!!!!1
World keeps on turnin’.
I did have a meal ruined once because I noticed there were onions in it, and suddenly that was all I could taste in it.
But I love crossovers, so keep doing what you do.
I don’t much care for the cat, but I was already sick of the cat plot from Girls With Slingshots. Maybe I’ll like the cat after a while, maybe I won’t, but it almost certainly won’t stop me reading.
Well, I was enjoying the crossover/new character just fine until you had to go and mentally associate it with ONIONS. NOW I WANT PIZZA. I WANT PIZZA NOW.
In order to complete your metaphor, I’m just gonna ignore the onions and enjoy my spaghetti. Thanks!
That was a… pretty clean and clear reply. I have no idea how you’ve managed to stay… personable… as a webcomic artist for over a decade, but it is impressive.
Onions are fine. Just no tomato chucks please. Or wifi.
Tomato sauce and wired ethernet only!
Tomato chucks? Why would anyone put plastic sandals in spaghetti?
This is why I tell my son that every meat he eats is “turkey.”
Yes, because stretchy absorby cat is absolutely the wierdest thing thats ever happened in the Walkyuniverse. You know, aside from the martian invasions & Giant Robot Monkey.
Let us not forget the honey bun.
Giant mutant honey bun.
This is why you suck.
Hmm, there’s no tag given for the kitty. Does that mean it’s not long for this (part of the fictional) world?
I just haven’t given her a name yet. When I have, and it’s revealed, I’ll go back and tag her.
> I just haven’t given her a name yet.
> When I have, and it’s revealed, I’ll go back and tag her.
TUNA is a totally great spongy pink cat name!
I think you should name her Ice Cream Cake.
Could always keep the name Hazel gave her. Expensive Appetite has a certain je ne sais quoi.
I believe she was named “Snugglebottom” first, but it wasn’t a name that stuck, obviously.
Miss Kitty Fantastico.
Okay, I guess it is already taken by Joss Whedon.
Actually, Season 7 (I think?) established that Miss Kitty Fantastico was killed in a tragic crossbow accident (totally Dawns’ fault). Leslie naming her tiny pink abomination Miss Kitty Fantastico the Second would be a lovely tribute to the adorable pet of everyones’ favourite lesbians.
Still want the name to be Muffit.
That;s the cutest thing to ever make me go WTF.
Why do americans say “tunafish”? Seems redundant, like beefcow or or baconpig. It ain’t like there’s other non aquatic forms of tuna.
Tuna is the chicken of the sea!
Technically it would be more like “Heifercow” or “Landracepig.” There are, after all, other breeds of fish.
That aside, tunafish just rolls off the tongue. It’s got a nice cadence.
Until Americans stop doing that, I’m going to refer to ALL fish like this. Tonight I’m having salmonfish. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll go out for some halibutfish and chips.
I LOVE SWORDFISHFISH
I don’t do that at all. In fact I purposefully say swordfish wrong. “Yes, the sword I had for dinner was excellent.”
That might backfire on you. Salmonfish is just catchy enough to work.
Americans call it “tunafish” because, by and large, we only see it in canned form until we discover sushi. In its canned form, it’s an undifferentiated mass of flaky meat; if we didn’t apply the appellation of “fish” to it, the label on the can would cause most of us to assume that the contents actually came from a mermaid.
Alternately, when you just say “tuna”, we might think you mean a piano.
Well, here in germany we call it “Thunfisch” wich sounds exactly like tunafish without the “a”.
The more you know…
MANBEARPIG IS WHAT CAME TO MIND WHEN YOU SAID LANDRACEPIG.
There actually are. Tuna is the name of a swedish village as well as the polynesian god of eels. Also, in New Zealand “tuna” is used to refer to a form of eel.
Granted, this doesn’t really explain why we say “Tuna-FISH.” But there are more things that go by the name “tuna” than just the fish.
I think I use the term based upon the form is it served to me. For example if it is a tuna that’s been seared or cooked and art of a plate meal, I’ll refer to it as tuna. Also tuna used in sushi, I refer to as tuna. Processed stuff, like the kind you get out of a can, or use in a sandwich, that tends to be paste like and get mixed with mayo or something, I refer to as tunafish.
My guess is this is to help people realize that it is tuna, and not some weird form of tasty puke.
o.o maybe you should have went and get a marshmallow kitten from Josh Lesnick’s girly instead…
This thing is kinda creepy… but at the same time cute in a Dragon Quest slime kind of way… I guess.
This is highly Lamarckian.
I want a hypoallergenic jelly cat… T-T
From this point forwards, I move that the cat be known as Amoebakitty.
Who’s with me?
Shouldn’t Leslie have been concerned the moment that kitten had a yellow/pink speech bubble? What sort of sound is that even supposed to represent?
The sound of orphans having their dreams of a new family euthanised.
Is it wrong that I simply find this cat adorable anyway? I don’t care that she assimilated the bowl even if it’s a little weird and I don’t even read Something Positive.
My honest deafilt response is:
The first time was a variant spelling.
The second time was the default spelling.
Well, it’s almost a Monkey Paw…
I’m hoping they name her Honeydew because I was eating honeydew and nearly spit it up when I saw this strip.
I’ve been reading Something Positive and Girls with Slingshots recently (Take a guess why) and I’ve gotta say, that kitty is awesome.
As for names, may I suggest Dax? As in Judsia Dax from DS9.
Ooh! DS9! The cat can be called Odo! (Let’s face it, the shape-shifting Founders don’t really have a true gender, so it shouldn’t matter)
hey david how was rooming with my dad at the con thing? “dad = frumph” Cant wait for next year when im invited xD
Cute and gross. That kitten really is her father’s daughter…
Now I’m wondering why Expensive Dental Surgery had to go through all that trouble to eat . . .
Expensive Dental Surgery took more after Sprinkles than Choo-Choo. It couldn’t do the jelly thing.
Could still fit down drains, though. >.>
Also, Choo-Choo Bear is slowly progressing with his plan to become the undisputed patriarch of webcomic cats. Soon he will rule us all.
He already rules us all, it’s just that some of us don’t know or accept it yet.
I’ve never read S*P, but this still wasn’t a WTF moment because I’d read too many of these comments.
They’d better start investing in cheap disposable bowls.
That never stopped Alex from RIVER CITY!
Kitty just absorbed the tuna and bowl through its body.
That can’t be good.
‘shmallowcat needs a name ?
I’d second that. It beats what I was thinking of. (Zool.)
first i think it was zuul and second i wanz it to be named jelly
I thought it was X’ul?
I got an idea for a name! Colonal P. Marshmallow Von Fluffercat the 4th!
Yay! I’m helping!!
As in, from the colon?
You know, with Leslie being the sci-fi fangirl, she might suddenly have a distinct fear of the very thing that just bought Roz all those brownie points. Oops.
Didn’t know it was a crossover. Thanks for the explanation. I just figured it was just the usual weirdness around here.
I Love crossovers
I Love Something Positive
I Love all your web-comics
I also love spaghetti.
Spaghetti is awesome. Though preferably without onions!
There is nothing onions cannot improve! NOTHING!
Onions, onions, La la la
Onions, onions, Ha ha ha
Ooh, I love onions
AAAAHHHHHH you bring me out of lurkdom so I can comment on your comment! I grew up with my dad playing me this song on tape in the car. I recently found it again on youtube. Oh the memories! Thank you for also knowing it!
That’s a very good question.
awww! Kitty takes after his daddy! I suppose in some ways it’s better than the alternatave… poor special K.
How about naming her “The Blob”? We can call her Blobby for short! =D
I clicked through a couple S/P strips when I found out a crossover was going on, but I still didn’t see this coming. Others are right, though; this probably isn’t all that weird for the Walkyverse.
I’m very late to the comment party today, but let me just say that the name “Expensive Appetite” suddenly makes a LOOOOT more sense.
They should name her Odette after Odo from DS9….
I am loving this so much.. I mean I’ve seen crossovers before, but.. for some reason this feels like two comics I like are having sex and letting me watch.
Leslie: “We’re going to need some more bowls!”
How about Schlock? Schlock Mercenary is an amoeba person who can eat everything…though he only has one orifice…
Damn! Now I want one of those!
I am utterly convinced that this cat is a Mew. As in, the Pokemon.
It looks, acts and sounds exactly like one.
exactly what I thought too. I thought it was a Pokemon reference rather then a crossover…I need to read more comics.
Hypoallergenic boneless cat- $120
Tunafish, salmonfish, halibutfish, or sword- $5
The look on Leslie’s face- Priceless
“There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s MasterCard.
OMFG! *lmao* I am just loving the inter-connectivity that’s been happening lately. I’m getting introduced to some great new comics!
Mmm. Osmosis rules.
♪Jelly cat, jel-ly cat, what are they feeding you?
Jelly cat, jel-ly cat, it’s not your fault!♫
Heheh, I just had to. xD Anyway, hilarious comic, and I look forward to seeing more from the jelly kitty with the enormous appetite!
I used to refer to S*P as “the one with the gooey cat” and let be the only descriptor, but that won’t be specific enough anymore it seems! Hehe, keep on keeping on :3
why has no one mentioned kirby
now i just want to see what insane sh*t its claws look like
come on, it just has to have freaky claws
The Kat and the Bowel Have Become One!
I recognized the reference! Good lord, I love that cat!
I must read Something*Positive now dang it I use to not read many Webcomics.
No wai!! In the last comic I thought of girls with slingshots when I saw the hypoallergenic kitteh!!!!
It’s the tasty planet monster
what the **** is wrong with that cat?? D=
