Kitty forms are their own reward. And while I'm sure past me wanted to explain the timing of William and Gillian's arrival, I'm also pretty sure he mostly just wanted to draw kitty uryuoms.
I wouldn't say I exactly "nailed it" with Tedd's expression in panel three, but to be fair, he's wearing those enormous glasses. It's far from impossible to make him be properly expressive while wearing those, but it IS a lot more difficult.
That said, that's a weird expression to be having in any case, particularly in that pose. Of course, he is looking back at Grace while working at a desk that's an ergonomic nightmare, so whatevs.
