@Luczinda: Possibly? I'm posting from Ireland so there's a time zone difference with a lot of readers. I'm not sure when I uploaded this tbh
Lol trumpcare
Well... it's a plan.
Man I had this all lined up and forgot about it, I've been busy at work. My boss is leaving and there's a new management team stepping in so I've kind of been left to my own devices. I've actually been a bit lost at sea because I'm used to being micromanaged to rigidly upheld and horrendously out-of-date practices, so researching how to do my job the right way is busy and stressful and actually pretty rewarding.
We're sticking with the Mini Comics format with high-resolution printables up on Patreon

Ireland appointed its first openly gay prime minister last week (taoiseach, pronounced tea-shock, actually, but prime minister for the sake of international understanding). It's...better as a symbol than as a reality, he's really very conservative and will do as much for gay rights in Ireland as Theresa May has done for women's rights in the UK. Of course of the two main parties in Ireland there's some disagreement as to which one is the conservatives and which one is the progressives, they're very much two cheeks of the same centre-right arse.

Still, it's a sign of progress that a major political party can recognise the gay son of an indian immigrant as the same kind of morally bankrupt, classist, money-hungry corruptible shitstack that's come to the head of the party for the last 70+ years. Here's an interview with Chris Rock from 2014 where it's about race not sexuality but it's talking about the same sense of progress as a society.
@antlan87: Incoming wormhole!
When a cat shoves its butt in your face it actually DOES want you to sniff it. Scent is very important to them so it's actually a friendly, even intimate, form of greeting. It's a heck of a backhanded compliment.
Sorry for the break, I need them every once in a while.

This was drawn out as a mini comic, they're how I got started making comics back in school and since doing the one for Free Comic Book Day I'm enjoying the format. Also with covers they're good printable bonus content for Patreon, and we have a couple of Patreon pledges now :D

There's more panels but the full 5-page spread was too tall so the rest's going up later
The trouble with comedy is you have to try to make it true-to-life without also making it incredibly fucking depressing. Money struggles are, ironically, a goldmine.

@TimeScavenger: Are those my own words? That's disheartening. Five years on finances are worse than ever and I've long since accepted that this *is* just a hobby. Trying to make money out of it didn't work and made it not be fun.

We've some money trickling in from Patreon with a few of the pledges above dollar level, so that makes me happy, but I went through quite a lot of heartbreak five years ago and one of the things that broke was big ambition.

I do get thanked for continuing to make comics from time to time though, and that's always nice :)
New comic! I've had an annoying day so I'm going to keep the blog short on this one.

Any questions?
The shark has wings because Neko really doesn't research his fantasies at all.

You might have spotted the slightly different formatting this week, and that's because this one's another mini comic! The print version with the cover is a a Patreon exclusive though.

If you're considering pledging on Patreon do please consider harder, I just checked my bank balance and am even more screwed than I thought this month. That's pretty much the theme song for anyone younger than Star Wars though so don't sweat it if you're living the ramen life. We're up pee creek with like two thirds of a paddle xx

@Freezer: You won the continuity error contest for this one!
@Ilera: Personal icons and avatars are fine :)

You missed a bit of space between his tail and his body though so I've filled that in for you and lit his cigarette at http://i.imgur.com/eJuFQaL.jpg
Got some bad news: Our landlady wants to move back into the apartment we're currently living in, so we've got to find a new one. If anyone knows of a place to rent in Dublin that's OK with cats, please drop us a line, thanks.
I actually drew up another mini comic but the print template's going to be a Patreon exclusive so coloured fantasy panels which I don't have to pay to print HUZZAH! Free comic book day went pretty well, people seemed to like the mini comic. My vast personal wealth still hasn't materialised but I'm already about as bitter as I'm gonna get over that.

And there you have it! The printable version with covers is free at the Neko the Kitty Patreon page, Free Comic Book Day is Tomorrow, so it's the last day for erstwhile Nekolytes to abuse their college or office printing privileges and get involved. Print the pages double-sided so the intro page is on the back of the front cover in the bottom right and it's pretty easy to figure out how to fold and cut it. Have a good weekend everybody!

Page 4 of our Free Comic Book Day mini comic is kind of a bridge between pages 3 and 5 but it's Thursday and I never could get the hang of Thursdays. There's a printable version for free at the Neko the Kitty Patreon page and we're trying to get the Nekolytes involved. I'm in Dublin, so if our international readers could print a couple of the mini comics out and give them to your local comic shop for Free Comic Book Day this Saturday you'd really be helping me out. Pass them out in the queue , make some friends :)
Page 3 of daily upates, there's a public post on the < href="https://www.patreon.com/nekothekitty>Neko the Kitty Patreon including downloads to print your own Neko the Kitty mini comic. Print on two sides of an A4 page, fold it over twice and cut the top and there you have it. Print out a bunch for your friends! Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, and I've never met a comic shop owner I didn't like so it's a great day to get out and explore the comics community even if you don't have a lot of money.

Keno & Co continue their doodly advenchas in the vote incentives, they've made friends with an otter and I don't know where she came from but her name's Inka of the Two Rivers and she's been tagging along for a while now. I'm going to start putting a repository of the Keno strips up in the Patreon feed because I probably should have been doing that all along.

I'm actually really proud of this pun and I think that's because I'm 35 now. This is page 2 of our Free Comic Book Day mini comic, there's a printable version available at https://www.patreon.com/nekothekitty , print a couple out for your local comics shop!
