* April, Randy's sister recently arrived from Australia (with kits Amber, Ember, and Leaf). The fallout of confusion from her arrival has yet to settle.
* Rudy and Bruce: two Wolves at a Zoo. Rudy is a friendly red wolf. Bruce is a timber wolf who likes ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' and isn't as tough as he looks [[http://www.ozfoxes.net/cgi/pl-fp1.cgi?1576 (or sounds)]].

Humans leave the animals mostly alone, although Randy has been doing some acting jobs for them. The animals can't communicate with the humans beyond Myrtle's very bad handwriting and Cocky's very bad translations, although everyone except Cindy understands English.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted with Randy.



* MeaningfulName: "Toast" was so called because his sister Marmalade was always on top of him when they were kittens. Later, when he unwillingly partners with Dusk, "I'm Toast" is quite appropriate for the situation he's landed in.



* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted.



* TraumaCongaLine: When Cindy first comes to live in the barn, she is bashed on the head with a bucket of water from a doorsill trap, frightened away by the "cannons" section of the 1812 Overture played at full blast, catches cold from a miserable night in unfamiliar territory, and finally is overdosed with cold medicine in a misguided attempt by Myrtle to make her feel better.

* [[IThinkYouBrokeHim I Think You Broke Her]]: When Myrtle's television is taken away, she stands staring at where it used to be, in a catatonic state. When a remote control is put in her hands, she mindlessly clicks it, repeatedly. Eventually, the cats start using her to play Living Statues.

* ButtMonkey: Randy, so very much. He's always falling for the cats' traps, getting picked on by Myrtle, in an unwitting love triangle with Cindy and Dusk, and then there was the time he burned his paws and went on some pain meds that left him extremely loopy. [[spoiler: Since his honeymoon with Cindy he seems to be wising up a bit, see "Virginity Makes you Stupid" below. But Hubert appears set to replace him in the role.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HandWave: When Australian vixen April arrives in the fall, with kits (it was spring in Australia), Cindy is completely bewildered by this unnatural occurrence. Stu explains that April had kits in autumn due to "a sort of human-like magic" that won't affect her or anyone she knows. This reassures her (but irritates Randy, who was attempting to explain it correctly with a beach ball and a flashlight).
