Is that…pride on Girl’s face in panels 7 and 8?
Cat already wears glasses but just doesn’t care. He puts in the monocle thing anyway hehe
As has been noted, the stripe of his “glasses” goes all the way around his head. Some have suggested goggles, but I think, as a cat, it may just be a pattern in his fur. He has winked before, and the mechanics would suggest it is a marking on his face,not spectacles…
The very first comic (and a few others) show goggles pretty clearly.
That doesn’t mean that is what he always wears, but its (probably) the source of why so many of us assume goggles. Its mine, anyway.
Well, heck, here is a comment from Dorothy herself in 2009:
“Not only is Cat wearing goggles – they are sunglasses goggles. Maybe they’re transition lenses, and when he goes indoors in a sunny day he has to spend a few seconds pretending to double-check his shoelaces before he can make out the difference between the silhouette of a person and one of a potted plant.”
