How to Discuss Something Unimportant That Bothers You

Lest you think I'm making it up.

 In the time since this comic was written both the toast and the egg have dissapeared, and the bacon is not in good shape.

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

Many of our small cat toys have ended up in the closet, under the refrigerator / entertainment center, or any narrow space that is just high enough for the cats to bat the toy into (air-hockey style), but too deep for them to reach under and retrieve.
All of these toys are just the right type to disappear in this manner. The bacon is undoubtedly not far behind.
Of course, given the toast's expression, it may simply be hiding from them . . .

Don't blame the toast! It was probably just feeling crumby!

Last line FTW!
Myself, I'm always a little creeped out by any depictions of food with smiling faces. It all seems so unsuspecting.
Cat toys, on the other hand, are just fun. The fiercer the cat, the more fun.

Are these from a store? They're so weird! they look like a home-ec class sewing project,
But frowny-face toast. :( Hilarious that humans can put a face or name to a non-living thing and now feel bad for it. there was a Community episode about this...

Note from Scott: We got them from the pet section at Target.

This makes me feel a little better about the times we found our human child playing in the cat food. There is balance in the Universe.

The set was incomplete when you bought it. It ought to have contained a sausage, a half a fried tomato, a mushroom, some baked beans in tomato sauce and lots of little cubes of fried potato. If it was a Harrods breakfast, a kidney and a pile of velour scrambled eggs would also have been de rigeur.

Or maybe that's just if they marketed it in Britain. Maybe Americans don't know how to make a breakfast. Did the cats enjoy playing with their pre-breakfast porridge? Was it smiling?

I would stick to the continental voile-covered "pain au chocolate" the next time.

I give one of my cats frozen dead mice. Previously-frozen mice, that is. I take them out of the freezer to thaw first. I do have a good reason for it. Just pointing out that when it comes to cats, bothersome is always relative.

The toast is probably under the washing machine... butter side down.

Not the bacon!
We need updated pictures on the bacon situation O.o
