Matt the Cat

I wish I had a picture of Matt the Cat, because he is absolutely adorable. He is belongs to the wonderful folks who draw Little Vampires, and is something of a celebrity himself, as he often appears in the comic, being pestered (or rewarded!) by the minuscule monsters.

This comic fudges the truth just a little a bit, for humors sake. For one, Matt was having a bit of an all-expenses paid vacation at the vets, where he is beloved by all of the vet techs, in order to spare Layne and I some serious allergic reactions. (The Hicks’ were even kind enough to borrow an air filter, which made a HUGE difference! I never even got the sniffles!) And, for another, he was far too much of a gentleman to end up on my face, though he did sniff curiously at me from a distance upon his return home after SDCC was over. (We didn’t leave until Tuesday, so we had a little time to visit San Diego after the con.)

Apparently, Matt really loves Canadians. The only other new person that he hasn’t hidden under the bed from was also Canadian, and he was treated to a full-on “pet me, love me” routine. I think that if Matt hadn’t been a little bewildered from the trip home from the vets, and had I not been to quick to keep my distance, lest I start sneezing, he would have wanted cuddles. He certainly peered down at me from the stairs for a very long time while I finished coloring my comics for the week.

So, Matt – here’s to you! Next time I come down there, I’ll bring you some maple syrup flavored catnip!

  1. If Matt the Cat could read, he would love this. But he can’t read, which is seriously hampering his attempts to get through Tolstoy.

    Perhaps Koko from Lilian Jackson Braun’s books will give him lessons. Then again, who would help Qwill solve all of those mysteries?
