Pussy Katnip: Cafe Owner and Crime Smasher

Pussy Katnip made her debut in The Book of Comics in 1944 published by Fox Feature Syndicate. She was a hat check girl and sometimes torch singer at the Kit Kat Night Club. The stories are credited to Len Short and Pussy Katnip was kind of a superhero as when she would drink her Katnip Fizz, it would give her a boost of agility and strength along with clairvoyance (almost like a spider-sense) that she used to protect her friends and place of employment.

She made only a handful of appearances between 1944 and 1945 before vanishing into obscurity.

Is that spotted dog supposed to be a Dalmatian? Not having read this story, why would Pussy know what a fire whistle sounds like but not the fire chief?

Maizie looks like she's having trouble putting that--what is it?--cowslip...?

I like Pussy's pose in the last panel. Always got to be "on".

Does she have to pour the Katnip Fizz on her head or is that just part of her "catfit"?

Pussy is loyal to no one. She doesn't care if the love of your life is a criminal. She will lock them in a closet and call the police on them.

I wonder if Maizie is getting her money back.

Madame La Fewtcher went kaflooey.

Kind of an overreaction don't you think? Where'd she get that dagger?
