Frank the Christmas Gargoyle


This is the story of Frank, a porch gargoyle. Frank has been guarding his human's house for three years. A neighbor - a "Karen" - complained that Frank should be taken down because he isn't "festive" and is not what she considers "in keeping with the Christmas spirit." And that, my friends, kicked off an epic prank war that Frank's human will never lose, because she is amazingly awesome at this. It culminated in a fierce, no holds barred battle between the porch denizens. You will be relieved to know that Good prevailed. With help from Chris Pratt and a terrifying weresloth. 

She's a veterinarian, with cats, so we here in the Cat Blogosphere already give her two paws up. But she wasn't content merely to entertain (most of) us, oh no, she took Frank's fame and channeled this into good works for others. She asked for donations for area food banks, which has raised well over 100k (the money was given directly to them, she has no part in this). 

Frank is known throughout the land now, with multiple news stories. Even George Takei weighed in! 


Frank can be found on his Facebook book. Well worth the read through all posts, beginning mid December.

  3. We had not heard about Frank and his follies, so we'll have to go check it out! Kudos to his human for doing so much for her community, and fie on that Karen!

  4. That's hilarious! Well, Frank's owner's reaction is hilarious, anyway. "Karen?" Not so much. :)

  5. What a hoot to hear about, and a great way to let one's sense of humor take charge, too. This turned into such a good cause, and we sure hope that person with the issue learns to mind her own business and stop being an a**hat.
