What kind of animal could Pintsize actually keep alive?

Cat - they can hunt for themselves
Dog - since they'll clamor loudly for attention until someone forces Pintsize to feed them
Pet rock - 'nuff said
Pigeon - surely the family of Pintsize's 'son' would like to come and live with him?
For the love of God, don't let Pintsize near a helpless animal
Spathe ham
Other - specify below

I feel like a dead cat would really ruin sex.

That depends on when you notice said cat's demise

If he's anything like a former gf's cat, he'll get jealous that someone "stole" his hoomin, and start pissing on everything that Elliot loves.

Uhoh, that means Clinton is going to need a shower and a new set of clothes

A "buttload" is an actual measurement, next time someone tells you that they need a buttload of something, tell them 126 gallons might be a bit too much.

Hercules likes to watch.

I can confirm that having a cat watch you (or even be in the same room doing other things like cleaning oneself) is NOT conducive to sexy times.

They're mostly interested in the furniture that they don't have access to. Or the Poodle. Mostly they play with each other on the other side of the room. They get bored and go downstairs before the serious stuff starts.

I am reminded of the time when Dora's plan to watch porn was interrupted by Mieville staring at her for hours.

So who else is expecting either...
- Yay just turning up in Elliot's living room to pick up Hercules, or
- (more likely) a scene in which Roko is arguing with Yay, something along the lines of "No, you can't just barge in and pick up the cat! And what have I said about eavesdropping on people while you're in my apartment!"

Just me?

Because it would be very in character for Yay to have overheard Thursday's conversation (comic 4564), and then be using that to justify to themselves that they are Elliot's cat sitter now and therefore they should clearly pick up Hercules straight away.

Perhaps we'll see this next week...

I feel fairly sure that even though Roko told Yay not to eavesdrop anymore they're probably still doing it. In fact I'm not sure if Yay is even capable of turning that off.

If Elliott has anything like Alexa in his apartment then Yay already knows.

Turns out there's some non-evil digital assistant alternatives (came across these on tumblr).
Open source and secure alternatives:

- Voice activated smart speaker: Mycroft (can be purchased as a complete unit, or DIYed with a Raspberry Pi and microphone+speaker array) https://mycroft.ai/

- Smart Home automation: home-assistant (cannot be purchased, originally developed by MIT) https://www.home-assistant.io/

- Zigbee (the wireless protocol for smart lights and other smart devices) bridge: Conbee II (this takes the place of a Phillips Bridge, for instance. And is in many cases better because it works with all brands of smart light that use Zigbee--which is almost all of them, including the cheap IKEA ones--and also works for devices that arenít lights. Cannot really be DIYed because Zigbee needs special hardware, not just software) https://phoscon.de/en/conbee2

Making surprised eye contact with a cat you didn't know is there and is very close, also not conducive.

You know what is conducive? Holding them far away from your body while you throw them out the room.

Am I the only who thinks that Pintsize is probably one of the most mentally- and emotionally-stable members of the original cast and, by a long margin, the one most likely to make a sensible choice when it matters?

No, I agree.
