YAY! First! I though Fiddler and Key were both Dudes! O_o
I don’t believe I ever said one way or the other!
You have to admit, the art for Fiddler could be misleading, but we should’ve learned that lesson with Grape!
…and I believe that you still haven’t.
Well, I guess sense they’re more human than regular animals…
what does mean wensdaynight speacil on a monday night
yeah and wich is wich cause i think fiddler is the girl
…so what if they maybe are both dudes ? – it’s the year 2009, y’know !…
Maybe there both females..
…could be – although that exclamation: “you’re suffocating me” seems just a tad camp^^…
mind you: going through the menu list like Fiddler does is a typically female thing, really… you maybe know the kind of “dialogue” I mean: >> what were you going to have ? – really ? – well I kinda wanted something else, but if you think so… – no, that’s ok, I don’t mind having the same as you… – even though I was thinking of having something else… – but that’s fine with me… – mind you, that other one sounds nice… – so what were you going to have, again ? – really, there’s no need to shout… << XD
Could just be a very effeminate male, like Matt from Concession…
or there to just eat that thougt ever cross the mind
Very feminine pose in panel 3. Everything looks great Rick, keep up the awesome work!
I must say, I like the Waitress…
Why do you assume it’s a girl? There’s not much to go off of…
the tag that says “Cat Waitress” perhaps?
On top of that she has lashes…
Cross-dressing cat, ohnoes. D=>
Lol, but, really, very nice. I’m liking this so far.
ouch poor guys XD
…Why is it that whenever these kinds of things happen, saying I was surprised is usually a lie?
I don’t really get the alt text. The Wednesday night special on Monday is what you think it is? But I don’t know what it is. Would I look like an idiot if I asked?
It’s supposed to mean that it’s just as dumb as it sounds… I think…
Food left over from last Wednesday perhaps?
I think Fiddler is implying Keys is taking too long to pick his meal.
Ah, Heathcliff…. I had a mild affection for that show, ahaha. Great Comic Rick.
i had to read the comic like 3 times before i noticed it had a Heathcliff joke in there (by joke i mean the place being called Heathcliff’s if u can’t tell)
Heathcliffe was actually a Sunday comic strip before it was a TV show (I’m pretty sure, could be wrong)
And I know this because when I was a kid my grandparents had these Heathcliffe books, more of them comic strip books than anything.
Haha, those poor dogs and mice.
I did know there was a comic strip, unfortunately I never really got onto it so I watched the show instead.
LOL, Fiddler and Keys make a weird pair!
welp, a few things go through my mind:
1. Do they actually have to pay for the food?
2. If so, does Max get an allowance, or is Grape going to have to pay, or are they going Dutch?
3. Is it just me, or does it seem like Keys needs to start hanging out with other friends more often?
4. How is Peanut doing on his own? ;_;
1. That depends, how much did they bring?
2. Who knows?
3. They could be anti-social?
4. Peanut T-T
Wow, feminine Grape is so… unusual XD
i agree and also kinda disagree because i wanted to see her femine side since i foung she was a female and it unusaul cause your use to her as a tomboy wait tomcat no wait .. i dont know anymore
…yes, I must say she looks nice, even a bit giggly-girlish; ‘ts funny !… – although really I’m against too much gender stereotyping^^…
I… never really would have imagined the cats to be fond of garbage to be honest.
Intelligent cats like this, no, one wouldn’t expect them to like trash.
But real life cats, considering many are known for befriending skunks and raccoons, it’s not hard to imagine them eating throw aways.
In fact, stray city cats DO.
Don’t ask me how I know that. >.>;
Well, I laughed at this one.
max looks weird i always thought he was spanish like when i saw the valentine one i dont know i compared to puss n boots in shrek 2 … puss n boots is awsome XD
the cat waitress looks a gray tiger awsome ^^
i kinda thought peanut would be spying on them i dont know y
I would have think so too. I bet he is. Peanut probably hiding in one of those trash bins.
all you got to do is find the trash can coverd in tissuues and tears with peanut sobbing and saying “y him grape y not me” in one
ok rick this isnt an insult i just other people to know about this other again nothing insulting ok … if u heard of this comic called better days its funny comic i just some to know about better days cause its funny in so many ways houspets not an insult its the truth read better days too and u know wat i mean
Just about anyone who reads this comic has probably heard of “TwoKinds” and Jay Naylor’s “Better Days”. No disrespect, but Housepets is relatively less-known than either one… So it does little good to advertise.
Oh, and Naylor’s moved on, his new comic (taking place later in the lives of the “Better Days” characters) being “Original Life”
I wonder if anyone has ever read “Fuzzy Things” by Jonathan Sario. You can find it on google.
Used to be an avid reader of that comic but have kind of slacked off from it for awhile. Hmm may have to look back into again.
i know about original life but i just love better days i stateyd up to 4 am read all the strips and i got halfway there thats how much i love it
Pfft. Better Days. Go read Badly Drawn Kitties instead. Although in the redraw all Naylor’s characters have been cut. Either way Matt >>>> J.N. A lot nicer person too from what I can tell.
may I suggest catena manor?
oh and twokinds
There going to eat leftover food that came from the garbage?…well, this really shouldn’t surprise me. Bolt, Mittens, and Rhino did the same thing in Los Vegas and what a buffet that was.
So Fiddler is a girl, right? Or am I wrong?
or maybe there just there to eat or they are … *whispers* that way if u know wat i mean
It is hard to say… So far we lack any defining features of male/female. They both have the “cat-eyes”, but both lack lashes…
We’ll have to wait for Rick to shed some light.
He might just leave it a mystery, it’d make things interesting for sure.
if we saw a clooser look i bet we could determin if ones a girl or not
Has anyone else noticed Max’s collar collar? I just did but it was also in the previous strip…
now that theme song is stuck in my head
heathcliff, heathcliff no one should terrify their neighborhood.
but heathcliff just won’t be undone playing pranks on everyone.
Weird that the cats would dine like that, the dogs maybe but the cats?
My grate dane would tear out the garbage for revenge but seldom did he do it for food. (he knew how to open the fridge, we learned that much when we found two empty containers of butter) He also helped himself to the bag of dog food (we weren’t going stop him)
When we burned our trash he would also raid the fire pit for stuff, mostly because he got a taste for grilled food (he also could open the grill, and would lick the crap out of it)
I miss that dog sometimes.
I always imagined a place like their community would actually have restaurants that allowed pets to come in and eat. Maybe Daisy can open one with the bag of money she got from the ferrets.
i knew max could be a smooth dude…
glad characters arent that stereotype, keep up the good work.
…yup, Max is really trying to make Grape feel comfortable about this dating-business; very gentlemanly and quite loveable^^…
Same here. I honestly believed Grape’s reaction that she would want to bail out as soon as they got into the restaurant. It’s heartwarming to see Max keep her reassured at this point =)
I think it is about as intelligent as Tall, Gande, Vente.
YAY ‘NOTHER FOAMY FAN!
Can someone tell me what Fiddler and Keys’ respective genders are? I honestly can’t tell if they’re both guys, both girls, or one boy and one girl.
They’re either two guys, two gals, or one guy and one gal.
I’m going to go with, based off their previous performance and this one, Fiddler (the light brown one) being a girl, and Key being a guy. Just ’cause.
I suppose this is a stray cat’s version of a premier diner. Very unique.
Hooray for gender confusion….
I think Rick’s let Key and Fiddler’s gender’s rather unknown so you can fill it in with what you like to think. Honestly, until they reappear, it shouldn’t really matter other than it’s funny. XD And that brings me to what do their genders really matter any way? They’re part of the BACKGROUND (Literally XD) right now.
Mmm… chinese buffets… There’s this great one called Buffet Dynasty near me with delicious fried calamari.
Also, methinks that Max looks a little young in the third panel. He’s got that whole baby face thing going on…
Dinner in the dumster with a double date?
methinks there be trouble up ahead!
I am LOVING this comic more by each page! plez keep it up!
Aannnnd…on a side note, (or… romance, gender, etc aside)
is Fiddler and Keys “code” for something?
did they appear in a previous comic?
I iz confused.
Whoa, long coment, -I done now.
Fiddler plays the violin, and Keys plays the piano… no codes here.
-side note, try clicking their names underneath the comic next to the “Tags”, it will show you all the comics that character was in.
But Oy! i did it again.
(somebody plz tell me to be more observant)
Be more observant!
there, do you feel better now?
now grant me 3 wishes
*Gives you a lamp*
Make your own wishes
As long as they don’t have a resident singer.
Looks more like he’s suffocating himself the way he’s pressing his head against the table
The background reminds me of the set for the musical ‘Cats’.
Is Munkustrap going to make an appearance? lol Joking.
I’d eat there.
Grape is *so* darn feminine, here. sweetie!
Awwrr ^^ Cuties they are
