All the humans in Heathcliff explain the goings-on of Heathcliff like an enabling parent on Intervention explains why their adult child is allowed to do drugs and play Dance Dance Revolution in their basement instead of getting a job. Here, a politician explains why a pack of feral cats is protesting outside the capitol.
I don’t understand why neither politician just yells, “CATNIP IS LEGAL! YOU CAN BUY IT AT A PET STORE!” How is Heathcliff informed enough about the political process to protest but uniformed about the legality of catnip. Okay, you know what, I was briefly transported to the magical land of Westfinster and forgot how American politics actually are. Good grief.
On 9/11/11, we saw the only post 9/11/01 Heathcliff comic that was about the 9/11.
That’s a nice sentiment but the first-responders in Heathcliff aren’t that heroic. They never do anything to stop Heathcliff’s crimes.
Here, Heathcliff is stealing food and the two police officers don’t do anything. They’re just like, “Oh, cool, a cat on a bike.” Westfinster tax dollars at work, folks! Yes, the town is called Westfinster.
Also, a cat stole a dog from a fire station without anyone noticing or protesting, including the dog. Dogs are dumb and Heathcliff is ridiculous. Never forget.
