    I've been uploading some non comic related artwork on my flickr so go and have a look if you're interested. (And don't forget that there are new sketches every week on my facebook page!)

    Aw, poor Shoelace. He loves you too much for you to leave him forever, Li. He's such a sweetheart.

    I miss the days when Li's comment would at least tangentially have something to do with the comic, rather than just being an advertisement for her other work. It's not that I mind the advertisement; I just miss the comments. :-(

    I would have thought (or hoped) that the cat would curl the other way, so as to be able to sniff her breath. The way it's drawn, the cat ends up with the wrong "end" over her mouth. Ewww.

    My cat would totally eat my face, instead of cuddling on top of it .. but only if I am truly dead. She could tell. As sad as it may sound, cats really do eat dead people, just google about it. At least if I live alone and die of a heart attack one day, I'd like keep feeding my cat for a few days until help comes, rather than having her starve to death..

    Do you know about Cat Versus Human? You must know. All comic artists know each other, right?

    I was wondering how you do such accurate paintings. It's obvious you use a visual reference, but do you paint on top of a preexisting image or do you just free hand (don't be offended, just flattered if anything)? We seem to have like interests in regards to shows, so if you're bored since GoT is now over check these out: Breaking Bad, Dexter, The Walking Dead, Spartacus, or Californication. I think you'd enjoy The Walking Dead the most, if indeed you're bored and need a source of entertainment.

    Aww, I absolutely love your comics! (I did read all of them within 2 days) Shoelace is my number1 favorite - reminds me my cat, Zoey... X3 I want to ask, that is there any way of buying these comics in book (or something like that)?

    I've felt like doing this all day. Unfortunately, life was forcing me to be a responsible person ~shudder~ and I couldn't. It's good to have this, and at least know what would have happened if I'd tried. Once I tried for a nap on the couch, though, my cat decided that anywhere that made me uncomfortable was his new most comfortable spot. What a nice, simple yet relatable, comic.

    A few years ago my flatmates had a kitten. At that time, I sometimes worked graveyard shift at a bread factory. One morning I got home and went to sleep and woke up with the kitten's foot up my nose! Fortunately the kitten grew quickly and her feet had become bigger than my nostril by the next time she decided to sleep on my face. Oh, and it was this kitten: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs8/i/2005/356/9/c/Mystique_01_by_serifix_anulian.jpg Unfortunately the flatmates who owned her hated my other flatmate and moved out.

    I think Shoelace needs to re-read that pamphlet on CPR.

    Have you ever noticed how cats rule the roost? We get up,go to work for 5 days a week or whatever,just to pay for their luxury lifestyle.They eat,sleep,screw around,then eat & sleep some more.If I was a Buddhist,I would definitely want to be reincarnated as a big old tomcat next time around!
