Fluffy Feline Friday: Mehitabel

It’s been just over a week since the sweet Mehitabel went to eternal resting place in the back yard. I still miss her terribly, and even though I have decided to keep her memory alive here in the Panda Chronicles, the house is way too quiet and empty without her. How a house can be more quiet than it was when she was sleeping 23 hours a day, I don’t know, but it is.

Here are some of my favorite ‘toons starring the divine Miss Mehitabel!


Mehitabel thanks you!

Well, we do all look alike.

The panda kindergarten is “busy” …can you call back later?

Part 1 of Bob and Mehitabel’s explanation…

Look out Mehitabel! here comes the panda kindergarten!

Maybe someone else should release their tax returns, don’t you think?

And who could forget her starring role in The Wizard of Wu?


Mehitabel would like to register her protest about given the least sympathetic role in this adventure.

Stay tuned later this month for the outtakes and blooper reel!

We’ll have more of Mehitabel’s greatest moments in next week’s Fabulous Furry  Feline Friday!

And now, a political message from The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire: If you believe that affordable healthcare for all is important, please call your representative today and ask him or her to vote AGAINST the repeal of the ACA (Affordable Healthcare Act). Repeal will affect you no matter where your insurance comes from, as some of the provisions include things like preventing insurance companies from rejecting  you or charging you  more for pre-existing conditions, and keeping them from setting lifetime limits on coverage, which, if you or someone you know has been very ill, can affect you. There’s a bunch more good stuff that it does, including providing insurance for low income artists such as myself, at an affordable cost.

They had six years to come up with a better plan and they haven’t. Don’t let them repeal it without replacing it with something better!

    Always have enjoyed Mehitabel’s snark! Thanks for the reposts. By the way, I bet you still see her out of the corner of your eye sometimes, on her favorite spots. When my “first” died, I heard the wicker chair she loved (to death…it was in splinters) creak one night soon after, just like it had when she would jump into it. This passes. In a way I wish it would not.

      I hope she will be haunting the house for some time to come. Thanks for writing. She always did resent the panda incursion to her house and cartoons. A little snark was well deserved.

      You know, that is not a terrible idea. Nothing anytime soon, but I have added turning the story into a full length graphic novel to my to-do list. My brother (who writes plays) has suggested a good craft book on playwriting that has gone on my to-buy list, to help me think about how this might be staged. He also said that he might be willing to work on it, but just so you know, my name should be bigger on the poster. The talking soccer ball and toaster could bring some challenges to the staging, but maybe Meryl Streep would want to play Mehitabel as the Wicked Witch.

      I loved calling Mehitabel Mr. Kitty in real life too. I’m very sure she gave me nasty looks when I did it, too.
