Baby Practice

A comic with five panels. Panel one takes up 1/3 of the page. In it, comic lucy is pregnant and sitting on a yellow couch with her partner, their cat is purring in his lap. Comic Lucy says 'I don't understand why some people see cats as practice for babies. They're totally different!' The next three panels are smaller and together take up the middle 1/3rd of the page. In the first, a cat nibbles on a houseplant and a baby also nibbles on a houseplant. In the second, a baby drops their sippy cup off their highchair, and a cat sits on a table next to them having just pushed off a glass which is smashed on the ground. In the third, comic lucy stands holded the baby, who is biting her cheek and pulling her hair, while a cat is attached to and biting her leg. The final panel takes the bottom 1/3 of the page. In it, lucy's partner has a laser pointer and is moving it around the floor as both the cat and the baby go after it. Comic Lucy is standing next to them and says 'Fine. There's some overlap'

Productivity

Two panels. First panel: text reads 'remember, your productivity ...' comic is in greys and shows a dinosaur looking harassed, rushing around with stacks of paper, scribbling notes, picking things back up while a cat pokes around, trips them up and generally is a bother. Panel 2: text reads '... is not your worth.' Comic is in colour and shows dinosaur and cat napping on a couch.

Purpose

5 panel comic. Panel 1: I am slumped in a chair saying 'I haven't been doing enough.' Panel 2: 'what's the point of me?' Panel 3: I am still talking, my partner approaches holding our cat. Panel 4: he dumps the cat in my lap and says 'He needs somewhere warm to sit'. Panel 5: I sit with cat, no longer slumped.

Okay, so this one isn’t exactly fluff, but ideally it’s not a downer either. Despite my resolve to post fluff as often as possible through all this, I have been … struggling. My old friend depression has been circling. Which is not particularly surprising, given everything. So if you’ve been wondering why the comics dropped off even after I promised, or if you’ve been hanging around your own comment sections, wringing your hands, waiting for me to appear and leave inspiring words such as ‘nice! I liked this’ … sorry. I’m working on it. 

But don’t worry. I’ve got a major in psychology, antidepressants, and a decade’s worth of therapy under my belt*. I’ve passed through this before. I can do it again.

* and my cat, I guess. But despite this comic, I don’t think cats are in and of themselves the answer to depression. Sorry. They can help, sure, but for actual clinical depression probably get some medical advice.

Games

My partner plays a game with our cat [man puts dino toy on table, cat looks at it then knocks it onto the floor]. Whenever the cat finds the toy dinosaur on the coffee table, he knocks it down [cat sees dino on table, looks at it, knocks it down as man laughs]. But sometimes I wonder ... [man sees dino on floor, picks it up, puts it on table while cat watches] ... who is playing with whom.

More cats

Most cats: person sits reading with sleeping cat on lap. Person reaches to turn on lamp, cat looks up and says "how dare you move". Cat leaves, person is sad. My cat: I sit reading with cat on lap. We both look up to above panel where cat is saying "how dare you move". My cat says to me "holy shit, a talking cat."

This one’s a sort of follow up to my last comic.
