Living With Stacy #121 – Runt Of The Litter

Hey-yo LWS fans and welcome to another new Living With Stacy comic called “Runt of the Litter.” As you may have guessed…actually you know now, that Stacy’s little detour to the pet store was a little bit more eventful than she initially promised. Looks like Ryan and Stacy have a new kitten! And thus starts a new era of LWS. From now on, Ryan and Stacy have two cats. Tori and….Ah ha! That’ s right, this new kitten has yet to be named. Check back soon to find out what we name our newest member of our family.

The new kitten arc has just begun. I plan on having a few more comics that focus on our new kitty. Look forward to that in the coming future. I hope you liked this week’s LWS comic. If you have any stories you wish to share about your first kitten adventure, please feel free to post it below, or on our Facebook page.

For anyone looking for more cat comics, check out the LWS comic archive.

Finally, I decided to add an exert from Wikipedia on American Shorthairs for good measure.

American Shorthair

The American Shorthair (ASH) is a breed of domestic cat believed to be descended from European cats brought to North America by early settlers to protect valuable cargo from mice and rats. According to the Cat Fancier’s Association, in 2012, it was the seventh most popular pedigreed cat in the United States.

When settlers sailed from Europe to North America, they carried cats on board (ships’ cats) to protect the stores from mice. For instance, the cats that came over on the Mayflower with the Pilgrims to hunt rats on the ship and in the colony. Many of these cats landed in the New World, interbred, and developed special characteristics to help them cope with their new life and climate.

The American Shorthair is a pedigreed cat breed, with a strict conformation standard, as set by cat fanciers of the breed and the North American cat fancier associations such as The International Cat Association (TICA)[5] and the Cat Fanciers’ Association.

Although it is not an extremely athletic cat, the American Shorthair has a large, powerfully-built body. According to the breed standard of the Cat Fanciers’ Association, the American Shorthair is a true breed of working cat. They have round faces and short ears. According to the CFA, American Shorthairs are low-maintenance cats that are generally healthy, easy-going, affectionate with owners and social with strangers.

Males are significantly larger than females, weighing eleven to fifteen pounds when fully grown. Mature females weigh six to twelve pounds when they achieve full growth at three to four years of age. With a quality diet and plenty of attention, love, and care, they can live 15 years or longer, requiring annual vaccinations and veterinary checkups. These cats have solidly built, powerful, and muscular bodies with well-developed shoulders, chests, and hindquarters.

The American Shorthair is recognized in more than eighty different colors and patterns ranging from the brown-patched tabby to the blue-eyed white, the shaded silvers, smokes and cameos to the calico van, and many colors in between. Some even come in deep tones of black, brown, or other blends and combinations. QUOTED from – WIKIPEDIA.COM

LWS #120 - Detour

Living With Stacy #120 – Detour

Welcome to another new LWS comic called “Detour.” Stacy promises Ryan a drive to the Games Store but on the way takes a little detour. Where in the world are they going? Well since you read the comic and are now reading this very sentence I can assume that you know it’s the pet store. Yes, Stacy has taken Ryan to the pet store. But why did Stacy misdirect Ryan about the Video Games Store? Why didn’t she just go alone? Why indeed…You’ll have to tune in next week to find out!

So it’s pretty late here- I spent all day drawing today’s LWS comic, so I’m fresh out of funky words to write here. Let’s see…do any of my lovely LWS fans have pets? Cats, or dogs? Let me know in the comments section. Really, feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to know who’s reading, and what you think might happen next. Perhaps the comic is relatable to you and/or your loved ones. So yeah, comment away and don’t forget to check back next week. šŸ˜‰

If you liked this week’s LWS comic than you’ll love this one called “Let Me In.” It’s kinda of the start of this mini arc I’ve got going on.

Lws comic #119 - All Night Long

Living With Stacy #119 – All Night Long

Hey LWS comic fans, and welcome to a new strip called “All Night Long.” This one’s a bit of a pun, as we see Ryan and Stacy try and ease their cat Tori’s lonely heart by turning on music from the radio during the night. However, things don’t go as smoothly as either of them hoped. Damn you useful and false hope giving internet! Damn you!.

The “pun” in All Night Long comes from the Song by AC/DC and the fact that it was indeed an all night thing. I hope you loved this week’s comic. I know I loved making it. Even though it’s a Saturday night and I am posting this at…let’s see…11:45[pm. Haha, oh comic creating. :p

If you’re interested in the AC/DC song, you can check out the youtube video. I mean, I’m pretty sure you know the song, but hey, if there’s a small chance that you don’t, then by all means, check it out.

If you liked this week’s comic then you’ll definitely loved my other LWS comic strips. Feel free to check them out and even give them a share or two on Facebook or Twitter.

LWS #118 - Let Me In

Living With Stacy #118 – Let Me In

Heyo Living With Stacy fans and welcome to another new comic called “Let Me In.” In today’s strip we see Tori serenade her owners all night long in an attempt to convey, “Let me in!” Haha. But how long can a can meow at the door? She can’t possibly yowl much longer, right? WRONG! Ryan and Stacy soon let Tori in for some lovin’s much to their annoyance.

It’s kinda funny…Anyone who’s been in this situation before, i.e. any cat owner ever, goes through a similar thought process in which the meowing outside the door isn’t enough to justify getting out of your warm, cozy bed. It’s only hours later when you realize, “Oh my god, I’ve been awake for 3 hours!” and start screaming “SHUT UP!” into the night so loud the neighbors think you’re in dire trouble. Aw…aren’t cats just adorable.

That’s it for this weeks LWS, if you like cat comics then check out these ones called Honesty Is The Best Policy, Guilty Kitty and Dance With Me.

Living With Stacy #117 - Arbor

Living With Stacy #117 – Arbor

Hey Living With Stacy fans and welcome to a new comic called “Arbor.” What’s an arbor you ask? If you don’t know then you have something in common with me, Ryan. Haha, that is until my loving and knowledgeable filled me in on the world of arbors. An arbor is essentially a man made (and sometimes not) archway of trees. It’s also a lot of other nature-ish stuff. But you get it.

I was a little late getting this comic up so it’s out today (Sunday). If you’re reading this later than if I didn’t tell you that bit of info, you’d never know the difference. Haha. But hey, ya gotta put something down here for people to read, right? If you are enjoying my Winter comics, tis the season after all, then you will definitely love my other winter wonders, like “Pot Holes.”

Living with Stacy #116 - Back In Fashion

Living With Stacy #116 – Back in Fashion

Hey LWS fans, I have a new comic out today called “Back in Fashion.” Ryan finds an old pear of distressed jeans from the 90’s. Stacy urges him to try them on and although it’s a tight fit, Ryan manages to squeeze into them. Little does he know that the back end has ripped open and flaunts his sexy self in front of the bedroom mirror. “What’s the verdict?” Ryan asks. to which Stacy replies, “I think your jeans might be a little too distressed.” End scene. And that my friends is how you do a bum joke. Haha.

Well I hope you liked this week’s bum joke. It was inspired by the return of 90’s fashion…and let’s face it, not all 90’s clothes are back in fashion. Some styles should stay hidden forever. Well, what about distressed jeans? Nah. They’re cool. Right up there with my FUBU T-shirt and faux gold chain. šŸ˜‰

Hey LWS fans, I have a new comic out today called “Me Time.” In the words of Hagrid from Harry Potter, “I should not have said that, I should not have said that.” That’s what Ryan is feeling after giving Stacy some choice advice during her after work Me Time. Come on Ryan, don’t you know ’bout Me Time? Don’t you know how it works? Haha. Luckily, Ryan scurries off to bed before getting into more trouble.

LWS #114 - Pretty Little Chicken

Living With Stacy #114 – Pretty Little Chicken

Heyo LWS fans, I have a new comic out today called “Pretty Little Chicken.” Weird title for sure, but as you may know, Ryan has a soft spot for chicken. Specifically cooking and eating chicken. So much so that he serenades his “featherless friend” with compliments before popping it into the oven. Things don’t go as planned however, as the chicken soon slips from his hands and onto the floor ( a filthy one I might add). Poor Ryan. Poor pretty little chicken.

I hope you liked this weeks comic. I had fun drawing it. šŸ™‚ In other news, my GOFUNDME campaign is doing well, with over half of my goal funded already. Please check it out and feel free to contribute to the printing of LWS Volume 01. Liked this weeks strip? Then check out more chicken related comics.

Living With Stacy #113 - Bad Radish

Living With Stacy #113 – Bad Radish

Hey yo LWS fans and welcome to a new Living With Stacy comic called “Bad Radish.” Ryan arrives home and happily quotes a funny idiom. “I’m back like a bad rash!” Stacy hilariously misinterprets it and the rest is comic, comedy gold. I hope you liked Bad Radish!

Funny thing is, Stacy doesn’t even like radishes. But hey, visually they are quite funny. If I stop and think about it…Do I like radishes? Hm. What even is it? Well fear not, I have a directly quote exert from Wikipedia to help explain.

“The radish (Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. sativus) is an edible root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family that was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times. Radishes are grown and consumed throughout the world, being mostly eaten raw as a crunchy salad vegetable. They have numerous varieties, varying in size, flavor, color, and length of time they take to mature. Radishes owe their sharp flavor to the various chemical compounds produced by the plants, including glucosinolate, myrosinase, and isothiocyanate. They are sometimes grown as companion plants and suffer from few pests and diseases. They germinate quickly and grow rapidly, smaller varieties being ready for consumption within a month, while larger daikon varieties take several months. Another use of radish is as cover or catch crop in winter or as a forage crop. Some radishes are grown for their seeds; daikon, for instance, may be grown for oil production. Others are used for sprouting.”
