The 3 Daughters of King Coluath O'Hara - Page 7

One of my cats has a chronic stuffy nose, and so it's treated temporarily with steroids. The thing is, that the steroids increase the cat's appetite. Also, the steroids cause the cat to get fat.

So I've turned down the calorie volume on this cat, and I'm switching it to a low-carb diet. This 18 pound hungry cat is easily outraged when it isn't allowed to assuage its hunger, and it expresses its annoyance by clawing my box springs, clawing my leg, clawing my chair, and, most recent, it will sit by my chair staring right at me for minutes on end, and make an imploring "NNGH" sound every time I look at it. The loose translation is "I know you know I'm hungry."

I've got steroid inhalants on order, which I plan to give to the cat instead of the steroid pills it takes daily. The hope is that the steroid inhalants will keep the cat's nasal passages from swelling, and take the place of the steroid pills.

Until then, I am living with a ravenous beast.

Oh right, this week's page of the Three Daughters I tried changing the dog's eyes. A friend commented once, upon reading this very comic, "Wow, dogs with human eyes."

I didn't understand what he meant at the time, but I figured out that the structure of a dog's eyes is different. Like, the lids are shaped differently and also so is the dog's skull. So anyway.

Thanks for visiting! See you next week in 2019! Happy new year!

Comic transcript

You're reading a page from a comic book based on the ancient Irish Myth the Three daughters of King Coluath O'hara. The translation and story was from Jeremiah Curtin's book Irish Myths and Fairy Tales but don't go and spoil the comic by reading it. I'll be posting a page a week, and the first page is here. Please let me know in the comments if you want to buy a copy and end the suspense, and if enough people want it then hey I'll publish it. Thanks!

While the dog was gone hunting, a great gray crow that used to haunt the place came and carried the child away when it was a week old.

Remembering the warning, the third daughter of King Coluath O'Hara shed not a tear for the loss. All went on as before till another son was born.

The husband used to go hunting every day, and again he said she must not shed a tear if anything happened. When the child was a week old a great gray crow came and bore him away. But the mother did not cry or drop a tear.
