Got glands?

Normally1 I wouldn't mention the Penny Arcade webcomic. It's "a (primarily) topical video gaming news comic."

You don't have to have thumbs to play video games. But humans make the controllers assuming that you have thumbs. So dogs don't play video games very much.2

And since "The two characters spend much of their time playing and commenting on computer and video games, forming the basis of the humor in the strip," it normally isn't very interesting to dogs.

But(t) today's Penny Arcade is very different and features a cat in discomfort. Or a cat owner in discomfort, for sure. So there's that going for it.3

Plus, it's a timely health tip. Now that winter is approaching, there are maintenance chores. Change the oil. Add windshield-washer fluid. Drain the glands.

Short on time? Don't want to get your hands and clothes dirty? Have it done by a professional!


1 Now there's a loaded word.
2 Chew up the controllers, sure. Cell phones, TV remotes ... it's all good.
3 Just kidding, Tia!  :-)

Hey Tucker! What's up? My Nana says she can totally relate to that guy with the cat thing. I get that gland problem, and she says I do the "Butt scootin' boogie," whatever that is. I just like the feel of the carpet, ya' know what I mean? Nobody has to sing a country song about it or nothing like dat!

Woof you later!

ps - Ringo says Hi! Rosey saw him again today and she told me, normally I wouldn't talk to her, but she tells me all the stuff from her visits to the Max Fund No Kill Animal Shelter.
