I forgot about this, but back during Christmas Break, I put Star Trek in front of my cat to see what he would do. To my surprise, he actually did watch it. However, he only seemed mildly entertained - that is, until Scotty started talking. Then my cat actually paused the episode and stared at him. He just stared at Scotty and wouldn’t let me press play for, like, four or five minutes. After that, he watched for a while, but gradually lost interest and started dozing, only looking up when he heard Scotty’s voice.

Can someone please explain to me why my cat loves Scotty so much? Was James Doohan secretly some sort of magical cat whisperer? What is this?

20 years ago today my house burned down, so I wrote a comic about it.

Holy shit that’s a cool and terrifying story. Also, having read through the newspaper article at the end, I am looking forward to the Oatmeal comic about having a mother who was an internationally recognized “teddy bear artist.”


Bolding is mine. I thought the same thing. I was like, “Hey, way to bury the lede, Matt.”
