UPDATE: Hey folks! This week’s strip will be posted just a little later than usual. It should be up around noon PDT. Sorry Europeans and east coasters!

The Little Vampires practice being fierce every chance they get. The cat is often the target of their exhausting practice sessions, and the Little Vampires like to reward him for his patience whenever they can.

This strip is triple dedicated! It’s dedicated to my friends Randy and Ann, who are standing strong despite the loss of beloved pets. And it’s for my cat, Matt, who is continuing to survive cancer by staring it in the face and purring. No disease can withstand the might of his purr. It’s also for my older brother, Jim, who’s having a birthday this week. I’ve never bought him a can of birthday tuna, but would gladly do so if he was a cat. Which he is not.
