Elly's attempt to get Farley to chase away a yowling cat fail when he joins in.

(Strip Number 7039, Original Publication Date, 29 June 1986)

Panel 1: It's late at night and we see someone's cat (probably Annie's) sitting on a fence yowling its lungs out (probably because she's been locked out of her house.)

Panel 2: Said howling is keeping John and Elly from their preferred zombie-like slumber.

Panel 3: An unusually loud vocalization startles them.

Panel 4: Rage-faced Elly glares angrily at the cat for keeping her up at night.

Panel 5: We next see her try wake Farley up so that he can go chase away the mean old cat.

Panel 6: Since that didn't work, she simply kicked him out.

Panel 7: He comes up to the cat and makes a sort of subdued 'wurf' noise.

Panel 8: Since Lynn thinks that cats do this yowling thing because they hate people, it smiles as it yowls.

Panel 9: Elly and John look all poleaxed when Farley joins in yowling about being locked outside at night.

Summary: This is more proof that Elly and Lynn got most of their education about animal behavior from those esteemed biologists Charles M Jones, Robert McKimson and Isadore P "Friz" Freleng. A regular person would tell her that Annie's cat is howling to be let back in its house but since her brain is Warner Bros Cartoons, she thinks the poor thing likes to torment people.
