Answer:  CAUGHT WIND OF IT

(Very nice pun.  I don’t think many would consider this a groaner!  All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but every single jumble came up as new.  I thought both “mylite” and “ralewy” were great jumbles.  Super job with the answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  I felt sure the last two words were going to be either TO IT or OF IT.  It was one of those Jumbles where you had to up on you idioms.  The cartoon was a lot of fun.  10 human characters, and a dog.  Interesting kite!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
