By the typing of your thumbs, something wiki this way comes.

Hopefully this doesn't end like the Kilkenny Cats. Doug Relyea (talk) 04:29, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

What, you don't want to see nails and the ends of their tails? :D Mylorite (talk) 09:34, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
While the Wulfenbachs appear to be very adept at regenerating damaged bodies, I don't think Gil and Klaus would have much success with just nails and the ends of the tails.
Out of curiosity, did the print novels ever cover what became of Olga's body, after Klaus regenerated it, thinking she was Agatha? Doug Relyea (talk) 11:26, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
It is a popular theory that Princess Zulenna's brain will be put in her head. Bosda Di'Chi 12:54, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
An empty vessel, waiting to be filled. Is trouble waiting to happen... -- SpareParts (talk) 15:50, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm still holding out hope that I'll finally win a Moxana point when Olga's body shows up with Zulenna's brain. ⚙Zarchne (talk) 16:19, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

We need a page for Rita. ⚙Zarchne (talk) 16:19, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

I was holding off until we get an official name, but I see you've taken the initiative. --Geoduck42 (talk) 18:20, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm going on the record to say that I am not particularly happy with Rita as a place holder name for this character. I have nothing against the name Rita and I have never seen any episodes of the "Runt and Rita" segment of Animaniacs (sorry, BKHarvey) so I have no opinion on that at all, but this character has already has sort of been given a name of a sort in the comic: The Empress. The "sort of" is because the name only appears in the "sections titles" for the comic: "Introducing the Empress" . And the "of a sort" is because "The Empress" isn't actually a name, it's a title. Not only that, it may only have been used because Krosp originally identifies himself to Agatha as "The Emperor of All Cats". In other words, it may be more of a joke on the Foglios' part than a serious statement of a title that will be used for this character in the story.
Therefore, since the closest thing to an "official name" for this character is somewhat dubious, and since I have nothing better to suggest (and because I vastly prefer Rita to Floozy, which was an earlier attempt to coin a name for this character upon her first, pre-uplift, appearance), I will go along with Rita. -- William Ansley (talk) 01:37, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
Well, I just put in a shipload of time updating references to the cat formerly known as Kitchen's to "Rita" and I have to admit the name is growing on me. (Alas, I couldn't justify working a reference to "Lovely Rita, Meter Maid" into her article to myself!) I won't be at all surprised if the Folgios provide a canonical name for "Rita" on Friday, just to be contrary. -- William Ansley (talk) 03:26, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, the meter maid thing is driving me nuts, too. I'd like to point out (if you see this) that you could easily have renamed the page or made The Empress a redirect (along with "kitchen's cat" and "Floozy"). I think we both get that we need a page to hang the appearances subpage off of (I don't know why you did all that work otherwise) but the updater handles redirects. (We also needed a place to put things for the esteemed clam to filter.) ⚙Zarchne (talk) 00:04, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
WilliamAnsley--what is this crap of one-upping me all the time? What the Hell is your problem? I resent it. Knock it off. Bosda Di'Chi 19:22, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
Bosda Di'Chi--I was going to reply on your talk page, but I see your talk page, profile, etc., are unreachable now (apparently the new UCP wiki software is having a problem with the apostrophe in your username), so I'll reply here. I'm afraid I don't understand what I have done to incur your wrath. The only thing I can imagine that you might be referring to is the fact that I mentioned the song "Lovely Rita" around the same time that you did. However, I wrote and posted my message mentioning the song before I noticed yours and had no intention of one-upping anyone. Your response seems so out of proportion to anything I posted on this page that I have to entertain the idea that you are joking. If so, confirm this and I'll accept it as such. If not, please explain to me what I did to upset you and I'll try not to do it again. -- William Ansley (talk) 02:13, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
It' would be a great name--if she was a Meter maid. Bosda Di'Chi 13:18, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
