Spot the Frog (3/4/10)

Nature can be ruthless, but you’d never know it from reading the comics. You’ll never see a cat chase and kill a rabbit in the funnies, even though there are plenty of cats to go around and more than a few rabbits to serve as targets. That’s why today’s Spot the Frog deserves credit for articulating the cruel realities of the food chain. See that cat in panel three? He’s hungry. He’s methodical. He’s preparing to pounce on the bird he’s eying in order to a) eat it, b) toy with it, or c) present its body to a human. None of those options are pleasant, but at least they’re accurate.
