A friend of ours was having a birthday party last Saturday. It was a good party, there was barbecue, there was sushi, someone got him a board game intended for children which involved firing little plastic balls from catapults, and that just kept getting funnier and funnier.

When we were leaving (about 2.30 in the morning), Paige heard a noise from the park. It was a little lost kitten crying out. That's how you get eaten by an urban fox, so we took the kitten home and have put out notice looking for her owner.

The vet reckons she's feral though, so Paige has named her Lunabelle and there's a picture of her in today's vote incentive.

*Woost* for making Thomas the DERP Engine feeling pain!

That is simultaneously horribly wrong and freaking hilarious. It's also something my kid shall not see just yet...

And congrats on the new (painfully adorable) family member! I hope everyone gets along :)

is, is that puddles in the comic today? omg i haven't seen him in ages!

@Usukie: Yep, that's Puddles, who had an occasional recurring role in Fragile Gravity - the archive of which is still online here http://unseenllc.com/core.php

Fragile Gravity ended in 2009 with 1125 comics in the archive.

@Agen: That's not Thomas, that's Henry the HV1036B Electrical Transfer Engine - an entirely original character :P

Wait a sec wasn't Henry the green one?

@TheCatMolloy Congrats on the new kitten. Got any advice for getting fleas off kittens? I love the subtext for the news report "Nobody died but it's still y'know. News." CNN is jealous!

@Licourtrix: We just took her to a vet. Vet was super nice, too - only charged €7 for the visit once Paige explained where the kitten had come from. That was for an examination plus anti-worming and flea treatments (which was the spot-on-the-back-of-the-neck type). Not their usual rates, obviously, but damn nice of them all the same.

Primrose Hill in Dun Laoghaire is our vet, we'd recommend them for readers in Dublin :)

@GDA: It's not Henry from Thomas the Tank Engine either! Entirely original creation!

Poe makes every strip better. All of them. Even the ones he's not in.

Is that two people having sex by a train derailment?

And is that what you mean by 'How to get on TV'?

@TheCatMolloy: You do realize that a lot of people will think that's from Thomas and friends, right? Witch made me laugh since he is the "little electric engine that could" and he would have been a failure here.... But I concede that it's your own creation... I think it's mostly the grey face that sets it off though.

Anyways, I love Lunabelle. That's a really good picture of her and I am sure if you had a computer mouse of Neko or Keno sitting like that as a computer mouse, where their shoulders were the buttons, you could make a fortune! Haha in fact, a wireless mouse where a secondary laser set up as if Neko is chasing it would be useful, iconic and entertaining.

Lastly, I am happy to see that your kittens are returning, how will the gang feel about having a house full of cats again?

I'm still trying to figure out what happened to Jeff.

Reply VictorB, August 5th, 2014, 12:08 am

@TenthDoctor1: I think it was stated that Jeff died

Reply wysskers4, August 6th, 2014, 10:11 pm

I've been wondering if Jeff's death is related to the comic entitled "and knowing is half the battle."

This is awesome. Never been a fan of Thomas the Steam Engine.
