Considered response


We rarely talk about Ludwig the cat here on the Web site; we’re going to do that this week. As you’ll discover, I’m having some fun with Ol’ Loodie in the newspaper. I think Ludwig has served his purpose very well being depicted, generally, as a realistic house cat. A lot of my “cat humor” actually is based on the humans’ reaction to having around a furry creature who mostly eats and sleeps, albeit in entertaining fashion. However, if you read the strip regularly, you know I “bust loose” with Ludwig now and then, and I always enjoy it immensely.

The A&J strip above, from 1986, is one of my early favorites.
