    This makes me wonder about Pit

    • ndigit

      I honestly wonder about [i]all[/i] of them.

      • MagicalSarai

        They wouldn’t be adorable if we didn’t wonder about them. XP

  2. Dissension

    That is awesome; I want a literal ballroom!

  3. Cannon Fodder

    that was pretty smart

  4. Asteri

    Jeeves? JEEVES?!

    • Indagare

      This from the ferrets that specifically requested a steward named Steward.

  5. EHH

    His mustache doesn’t even match his disguise!

    • Parou

      Yup, ad of course you’d never be suspicious of a man who’s moustache does not match the rest of his hair…….. even if he turns up without an appointment…..

      Sharp as a bowling ball be our ferret friends……

    • SamBlob

      My beard doesn’t match my hair. Then again, my moustache does.

      • greek geek

        Yeah, My boyfriend has brown hair and red facial hair….It’s pretty weird.

        but it’s Suspicious anyway dang it!


        • EHH

          When I shave, I notice some of my facial hair isn’t my head hair color. I think it is because of my diet or something. I’m just pointing out that is a obvious Boris and Natasha like disguise. (I would say Superman, but Christopher Reeves proved that the Clark Kent disguise could be more than glasses and a change in hairstyle.)

  6. Thoth

    Now, if he’d just arrange for them to get a scaled-up set that they could ride in, he could probably get them to pay enough so that he wouldn’t need a map.

    • Darcin

      But that would require him to work.

    Grammar Police:
    … so… many… missing… periods… *calls in Grammar SWAT* … we have a… situation… that requires your assistance.

    Also, brilliant idea on the relative’s part.

  8. Cerberus

    Literal ballrooms beat the other ones easily. I think we can all agre, especially since i can’t dance.

  9. Sleet

    Imagine how awesome a literal ballroom of that size is.

    Now imagine how awesome it would be if you’re the size of a ferret!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Everything is better when you’re the size of a ferret.

      • Frank

        Except reaching the cookies on the top shelf. That can’t be much fun

        then again, they did redesign pretty much the whole house. I’m pretty sure the “top shelf” now is no more than three feet off the ground

  10. james319

    i bet he’s gonna bug him about questions on plumbing XD

    i could have sworn it was just 1 comment a second ago O_O

    • Loki Impisi

      Pneumatic tubes. So very, very awesome.

      • Valerio

        And they give out shiny paperweights to their best customers :D

        • Frank

          Looks like Argent Stonecutter was right! There will be pipelines involved!

      • Charlie



  11. lightwolf21

    It’s funny, the Costco near my house still uses Pneumatic tubes.

  12. Pokeblue

    It isn’t original, but at least he’s in. This is gonna be fun to see unfold.

  13. Dissension

    Just a comment on the title: When I’m casing something, it’s sometimes the place. “Let’s case the place” flows a bit better, I think.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      No, if you’re casing, tossing, or staking out, it’s always a joint. You can burgle the joint or the place, though. And if its arson, it’s always a terrible fire up at the place.

      • Frank

        Burgle: now a verb.

        Oh, never mind. It’s been a verb since 1870! And so has burglarize!

  14. JoeyWolf

    His description of the house makes me believe it was built from the blueprints to a CLUE board-game.

    • Denki

      Seriously though, it really does.
      Though it makes it a heck of a lot easier to infiltrate.

    • Frank

      I don’t seem to recall a “junk room” in Clue… unless that’s what they call the library (I wouldn’t be surprized, though)

      Also, I don’t recall a version with a hexagonal ballroom

  15. Weaver

    Somehow, I think he’s going to be very disappointed when he finds out they’re not getting any pneumatic tube rides.

    • Frank

      Who said anything about riding them? Though, knowing the ferrets, it’s very likely.

      Also, if the ungrateful relatives get caught, how ironic would it be if their punishment is to actually install the tubes?

  16. Argent Stonecutter

    You know what’s better than pneumatic tubes? Slinkies!


    • Legendario 777

      Hehehe…..Now that’s awesome. Never crossed my mind that thought !

    • wingedwolfgirl

      5 seconds later…
      :D :D :D :D :D :D

    • Frank

      No way! They actually make those? Ferret-sized?

  17. Nightghast

    thats a big ferret

  18. Kamron

    Pneumatic tubes… and ferrets? It’s like a hamster city, but with high-speed capability.


  19. wingedwolfgirl

    I can see it now.
    all the ferrets scurrying back and forth across the room…

  20. Poplick

    Why is he using his hurt hand to carry the toolbox? Wouldn’t that hurt? Is it hinting towards something in his left hand? Why am I asking all these questions?

  21. gio000

    IT’S A TRAP!!!

  22. Wolfenpilot687

    Heh, nice! Those ferrets have a REAL SMALL BRAIN, it seems!

  23. Xu-kitty

    Heh, I still love the “*PHOOMP!*” sound.

  24. Frank

    Uh, he had to take his larceny gloves off for this. Does that mean he’s no longer serious?

  25. Silver Dragon ordinence

    Hey everyone, I’m new here.

    I sense a thickening of plot occurring…

  26. Silver Dragon ordinence

    by the way, who says “I haven’t the foggiest”?

    • Zaffa

      Me. *waves hand*

    • SamBlob

      Me 2.

      …actually, no; I say “I haven’t the faintest.”

  27. Zaffa

    When are ya gonna name the ungrateful relatives anyway?

    • Frank

      The man is Thomas and the woman is Celia, it’s in the first strip they appear
      July 20, 2009

    good to hear.

  30. Fuzzypaws

    The surest way to a ferret’s slinky heart!
