Cat Years

January 7, 2008


I thought I’d start the new year with a simple, unpretentious cat cartoon, for the sake of simplicity and humility, sort of like eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day. I apologize. I know things petered out around here during the holidays; I hope you understand. However, those of you who have been coming around for a long time know the cold winter months are when I monkey with the Web site, and I expect this year will be no exception. Watch this space! Speaking of those who have been coming around for a long time, there are quite a number of you. As my friend at the nearby convenience store says after a sale, “We ‘preciate you!” So, for you and for everyone else, I just want you to know arloandjanis.com will lurch into the new year, undiminished.

  1. I love the cat cartoons and this is an EXCELLENT one. You know and understand cats.

    Ghost has kept the Garfields out of house in week I have been back but one ran in last night and he relented. The bed is smaller to allow wheelchair so Ghost and I barely fit..

    Garfield spent night curled in my hair. He is large cat.

  2. I seldom comment, Jimmy, but I am one of those long-time readers, and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the work/art you bring to us. I enjoy the blog as much as I do the comics, and I truly do appreciate you. You are part of my daily ritual that keeps me sane.

  3. Happy New Year, Jimmy! Been a reader since the start – first in print, then online, and now, you’re in my comics feed. Look forward every day to your take on modern married life – keep it up, sir!!!

    • Mark, since I did IT support for many years along with database and systems development, I wish the blog software had a “like” button so I could upvote your comment. However, adding the feature is not worth breaking the existing capability. 🙂

  4. Thanks for the shout out for us LONG timers. It beats being called OLD friends. But old friends are sometimes the best friends. I have long considered you a friend….even if you do give Arlo a big nose! Hey at least you give Janis a nice, uh I better quit while I’m ahead.

    Seriously you have been peeking into our windows so long, I can never know whether it is art imitating life or vice versa. Keep it up!
