My computer broke so there’s no kuddle kitten comic until I get a new one. So me and the kuddle kittens are getting a vacation! Unfortunately for the kuddle kittens, they’re stuck in the gloomy Valley of the Dolls while I’m here in beautiful West Philly, but they have plenty of orange soda, hot dogs, marshmallows, and Scrabble to while away the time, so they’ll be fine. So, see you next week.

It’s the one year anniversary of kuddlekittens.com.
Maybe i’ll have an ice cream sundae to celebrate, or, like the kuddle kittens, have a nice nap! Both wonderful choices.
Then on to Year Two!
Thank you everyone for reading!
Speaking of dots, a couple of years ago my favorite glasses were these glasses with dots on them I bought at a cvs. I liked them so much I took lots of photos of them. But, sadly, I don’t have them anymore. They were cheap plastic and cracked after about a year. Sigh…
The kuddle kittens told me that next week they want to do comics with kuddling. They haven’t done any kuddling comics in a long, long time. They reminded me that they are the KUDDLE kittens.
My new coffee maker! The instructions very helpfully say, ‘after a few minutes the water will boil and you will hear the familiar sound of coffee percolating into the top part and the wonderful smell of coffee will fill the kitchen.’
Now I’ve drawn pictures of my stove, my little league town championship trophy, my coffee maker, and my lamp. Pretty soon I will have drawn a picture of everything in my apartment!
For some reason, who knows, I’ve been using the same pencils to draw the kuddle kittens since I started the website eight months ago. Now they are tiny little stubs. Well, it’s time for me to move on. It’s time for these old pencils to be put out to pasture. It’s time for a new beginning!
Here’s a picture of the old worn out stubby pencils and the exciting brand new ones!
My stove is back. Evidently, seeing another stove getting attention was too much. As seen below, last summer, my stove liked to perform in front of the kittytown cam, trying to get noticed. And, then, wanting to audition for American Idol, spent a few weeks practicing singing in my shower (for the good acoustics). What next?
This week: the first daffodil! The weather was colder this week, but that didn’t stop one foolhardy little daffodil from blooming two months early. I saw it huddling beneath a large bush. Poor little daffodil, I thought. It made me want to write a poem!
O’ little daffodil,
What are you thinking?
It’s cold and you
Have no coat!
O’ foolish daffodil,
Are you crazy?
Don’t come out to play
Oh well, it needs work, but you get the idea…
What I did this week:
Successfully avoided doing laundry. Each day I was able to think up new excuses, justifications, and other things to do, rather than wash a very menacing giant pile of dirty clothes.
Seeing the first flowers of spring is always a big event, and on Thursday I saw a couple snowdrops! (They’re blooming about two months early. It’s been a very warm winter.)
Coming Monday: The One Hundredth Kuddle Kittens Comic! (the exciting conclusion to today’s cliffhanger!)
what i did this week! (a new regular friday feature!) it was a big, big week for s.r. sheldon:
mummers on new years day!
reading martin chuzzlewit!
saw hawk on porch roof looming over the sidewalk on spruce street! (exclusive photo below!)
It’s a New Year and I’m going to try to write more blog posts. More artist’s journal kind of posts, keep everyone up to date on what I’m doing: thoughts on my comics, news about my site, my awful procrastination on making t-shirts and mini-comics for the site ‘store’, etc. etc…. Plus, all the other exciting things I’m doing! (Actually, I’m not doing much, mostly drawing and writing, reading, and sitting around my apartment with my stove, my lamp, and my little league town championship trophy watching Sixers games. But, I’ll try to find interesting stuff about what I’m doing to write about, and, if that doesn’t work, I can always MAKE THINGS UP! Ha, ha, ha!)
Thank you everyone who’s been following the kuddle kittens for the past seven months. And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who comments here and on the kuddle kittens facebook page. It’s hard to work on this without hearing from you. If you don’t like public commenting (like me), send an e-mail! I love hearing from people!
About today’s comic, I’m totally with komfy. Post-holidays, winter, the short days, lack of sunlight, I think staying in bed twenty four hours a day, if possible, is the best way to deal with all this. I envy the worm who gets to hibernate.
I hope everyone has a great 2012!
Lots of stuff was left behind when the flood waters in the valley where the kittytown cam is receded, and king kitty and the kuddle kittens have spent the last two days cleaning it all up. They found some interesting stuff! Here is a list of some of the things they found: a yoga mat, an old clock, the number 5, a smoke alarm, four salt and pepper shakers, last year’s christmas decorations and one of their old easter baskets from five years ago, my stove, a blue sock, a set of fine luggage, a bunch of cool alien ray guns, jump ropes, a bowl of jello, six marbles, a cheese grater, corporate reports from 2005 tied up with string, a pile of rocks, a pink step ladder, four yellow markers, a calvin and hobbes quilt, a broken ‘caps lock’ key, a torn acl, some purple dots, some dinosaur fossils, six mean spiders, and three glasses of sour milk.
I never noticed until two years ago the froot in Froot Loops was spelled with two o’s.
Right now my favorite cereal is Honey Bunches of Oats, but I always get Froot Loops when they go on sale. Froot Loops are so beautiful.
Does anyone know if the different colors taste different? Does the purple taste like grape and the yellow taste like lemon? Or do they all taste the same? I’ve tried eating the colors seperately but I can’t tell, my palate isn’t sensitive enough. One friend tells me they do taste different but only the yellow and the green, the others all taste the same. Another friend says that they are supposed to taste different but they all taste the same to her.
I’m eating breakfast and staring at a picture of a spoonful of cereal on the front of my box of cereal. In tiny print next to the spoon it says, ‘product enlarged to show detail’. A different brand says it is the cereal’s texture they want to show. My brain is going, ?????????. I really think the pictures are enlarged for design reasons. A cereal box is big and in order to have a big bold design the box needs a big bold image, not a silly-looking tiny life-size picture of a teaspoon of cereal. I have no problem with that! Why are they lying? Is design something to be ashamed of? I’m actually more confused by the Life cereal box where the spoon is held up next to two human heads and appears to be twice the size of those heads. Shouldn’t there be tiny print next to the heads saying they’ve been shrunk in order to hide texture? Maybe because they have ugly pores and split ends?
