Something positive

The cats slept together in the sun this afternoon, and Biscuit washed Angus's face. He didn't get annoyed until she nibbled his ear.

Murrr?
I think of you as a well-read person who uses language expertly and with great humor and nuance. Was the reference intentional?

Thanks!

(That comic is very sad.)

The reference was actually to a meme going around where people ask each other to post something positive.

Actually, Choo-Choo Bear is a mystical creature, not ruled by laws of biology or physics. This is never explicitly stated, but is quite clear from context; not many ordinary cats can swim through drains across the country and steal women's underwear (from other comic strips, yet!).

Once I realized that, I stopped feeling a sort of horrified fascination and started laughing my head off.

(Then again, I had the same reaction when someone explained a solid theory behind the Matrix trilogy; it wasn't very realistic, but at least it *worked*, so I was able to watch the movies again.)

OK, I'm relieved. Thanks!

We refer to our cat as Choo-Choo Stimp. When he's asleep or just waking up and you pick him up, he has no bones! He just dangles in your arms. Then he wakes up and his bones grow back ;)
