  1. Dissension

    I know -I- never back down, once my larceny gloves are out.

    • Silver Dragon ordinence

      What happened to pretty much everything that happened in the last few story arcs with Peanut and Grape and the other cats and dogs?

  2. Stevie Maxwell

    That obvious?

    • Dissension

      Yes, that obvious.

      C’mon, who doesn’t like to get their hands dirty from time to time?

  3. Fuzzypaws

    Well the gloves officially make it srs business!

    Nice work with the lighting :)

    • Lutrinae

      apparently he pulled out his “thief turtleneck” also!

      • FuRrY321

        And his empty blueprints, villian pointer, and whatever that green thing is off to the side.

        Happy Birthday to me!!! (2 days ago – yay!)

  4. Rukral

    This is gonna end badly, to get to the map, you probably have to go through ferret-sized tubes or something.

    • Pokeblue

      This is gonna end badly for sure, but it certainly is going to be fun watching it happen.

  5. Noir the Sable

    GLOVES OUT SRS BUSINESS

  6. Cerberus

    For once i really don’t have to say anything. The comic says it all and more.

  7. Snowmon

    ‘(-,_,-)’ Oh, the possibilities… ehhehe…

  8. james319

    LOL XD

  9. Yami

    Who else here gets the feeling he’s going run into a certain muscular wolf?

    • Pappy

      I do! I alluded to that on the last strip.

  10. sparra1

    Larceny gloves? And all i got is business socks.

  11. Thoth

    I’d have to be REALLY desperate before I’d try to burglarize a mansion large enough to have an olympic-size swimming pool, now being managed and arranged (and possibly redesigned) by ferrets, with a staff and (presumably) some sort of security system, in search of a particular piece of paper that the ferrets have very likely hidden personally and that I didn’t even have a description of. Even with free access the search would probably take a week…

    They might have better odds buying a lottery ticket.

    For those interested, the dossiers for the Minor Animal Characters – Karl-Lenin Faust and Squeak, the Zoo Animals, the Mr Bigglesworth’s, the Farm Animals, the K-9 Unit, Joel’s Pets, and the Random Animals – are now up. As usual, they’re currently the last index link.

    • Valerio

      And let us not forget the wolves. As pets they should be qualified as night guards…
      Ooo, this is gonna be SO fun :D

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Actually, knowing these ferrets, the map is probably sitting on a main table in the middle of a well- lit room.

      • MrMutt

        I’m going to put my bet on that.

  12. ndigit

    Just wondering, we already know their names. Why are they still tagged as ungrateful relatives?

    • Valerio

      too dickensian to deserve a tag other than that!

    • SamBlob

      Continuity?

      Besides, the woman’s name is Celia, but what’s the man’s name?

      • Frank

        Thomas. And, more than Rick’s refusal to change previous tags (i.e. continuity), it’s probably another way to show neither will be shown by themselves

        • Rick Griffin

          I will get to it at some point, but I do have to exchange tags manually and all

          • JoeyWolf

            A wild Rick Griffin appears!

          • ndigit

            I guess that takes a long while?

          • Pappy

            I’m sure like most of us, Rick has a limited supply of Round To-Its. I know I do…

          • Frank

            Will you look at that? He’s just gone and done it! Well done, Rick

  13. Darcin

    The real question is, are they wearing sneakers? Because I hear those are used for sneaking.

    • Lucien

      >.> did you really just use that pun….

  14. Squival

    5 years down the line I can see these 2 gibbering in an insane asylum with the words “Map” and “Ferrets” written all over the walls

  15. Argent Stonecutter

    You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The first is never get involved in a land war in Asia. The second, only slightly less well known, is this: never go up against a ferret when larceny is on the line!

    • FlareKitsune

      …..I think I love you. XD

  16. Frank

    You know, I didn’t notice until the last pannel that the lamp was a lamp. Up to then I was like “Woah, that’s a big necklace to go burglaring in.” Bad blocking, Rick! (blocking in the context of a stage)

    For the rest, yay! more fun with lighting!
    and Yay! thanks to Thomas not being a perfectly rational human being, hilarity will ensue!

    • Loki Impisi

      The lamp is obviously Celia’s robotic arm.

  17. WingedWolfGirl

    Ominous lighting.

    …hasn’t paid the electric bill yet, has he?

  18. Gravity-Glue

    oooooh, thats a lamp!
    I thought it was some sort of pear on Celia’s shirt

  19. The game

    OHHHHHHHHHH
    Thats a table!!!!!
    I thought it was a skylight on a roof or something…
    me and my bad vision

  20. Archemedes Rex

    It’s a “blacklight” bulb in a swing-arm table lamp. That’s why odd parts of the characters look like they’re glowing.

    • Archemedes Rex

      Looking at the comic again, I think it’s their perfume/cologne that’s glowing.

  21. Silver Dragon ordinence

    Silver Dragon Ordinance out!
