    Max smile is cute ^^!!

  2. Rukral

    Lord Peanut, please allow this awsome Pridelands adventure to advance. We’ll give you cookies!

    • NobodyYouKnow

      ditto for Rick!

      • GameCobra

        double ditto for rick!

  3. Sleet

    Your characters are getting more and more expressive. I like it.

    Also, creepy alt text.

    • flora

      i agree i think were gonna see somthing that were not suposed to see *hint hint*

    • wingedwolfgirl

      Luv the way Peanut’s face looks!

  4. ReCreate

    aww crap 1 minute late xD

  5. ReCreate

    but anyways… cant wait for the next one :D takes 2 days to make and 20 seconds to read :/

    • Shadow Wolf X7

      it’s called suspense (I think), we all can’t wait for the next one, but at least there is a comic at every other day. Some comics take a week to update. This is customer service at is best… except… we aren’t buying anthing… but we do pay attention! :D haha *ba-dum tish!*

      • FuRrY321

        I think that’s called anticipation, not suspense, but yeah, I’m sure glad Rick updates the comic so quickly. I think it’s due to the fact that he doesn’t shade his characters in that he gets it done so fast, as well as the fact that the comic is never a huge page and there is never too much dialog. Even some strips that are only 3 panels or 4 panels large can be filled with too much text.

  6. Kamron

    I want to meet the spirits; they seem like pretty cool guys.

    • FuRrY321


      • Firewing

        I second that notion FuRrY. WHY HATE THE AWESOME? :O

    • IHazAName

      I think the spirits is a pretty cool guy, eh is invisible and doesnt afraid of anything.

  7. TomFox

    Max sure is a clever one isn’t he :)

  8. GameCobra

    The way Peanut looks down on Maxwell on the last panel there. it almost feels like he’s putting on the same face that Grape would.

    I also find that Maxwell is quite sharp on answers.

    • Frank

      Seems like the kind of kid who, when killed in a game, will say “Nuh-uh! I had a force-field!”

  9. Snowmon

    Why only Peanut? Is she like his “Guardian” or something?

    • Chip Uni

      Or maybe they’re psychically linked? (Tarot can send messages to Peanut from afar…) Or maybe it’s just a way to sneak into Peanut’s mind, and discover that, among his list of most wonderful things, she’s number twelve. After carob-flavored doggie treats.

    • valerio

      or maybe ‘cuz she’s fond of him and doesn’t want to let him to suffer? After all, she *did* try to warn Grape about Peanut’s feeling for her when we first met this doggie.

    • Foxstar

      Might be that she’s his girlfriend and second, she’s only linked with Peanut in that fashion.

    • Ekevoo

      If I had that power I wouldn’t want to use it in a social situation with some I have too little contact with…

  10. ReCreate

    maybe since shes a dog it can only be done on dogs?

  11. Zypher

    Been reading for a few days ( caught up in the archives in a day), first post.

    I think it’s because she only feels comfortable enough with Peanut. I mean, she’s barely interacted with the cats, really. Though it could very easily be the ‘only dogs’ thing, too.

    • Hopper200456

      Yeah,I think your right…Nice job on the strip!

  12. falcon01

    LOL! once again my whole office thinks i’m insane because of this strip! Fell out of my chair laughing!

    • Frank

      your office? at 1 AM? Where do you work?

      Wait, I can figure this out. If office hours are from 8AM to 5PM, you need to be at least 7 time zones to the est of CDT (which means UTC+2) and at most 17 (UTC+12)
      Okay… that basically puts you anywhere on the “old world” (Europe, Asia, Africa) plus Australia.

      • NobodyYouKnow

        I vote Australia, for reasons unknown even to myself

      • aerion

        Or he wasn’t posting during office hours.

      • Frank

        Funny, nobody’s pointed out the fatal flaw in my “figuring out”: office hours are not the same worldwide.

        Also, putting Europe in UTC+2 assumes DST has already begun, which is supposed to happen next week.

    • FuRrY321

      Guys, he fell out of his office chair at home and probably read it again at work.
      Either that, or he does live in Europe, Asia, Africa, or Australia.

      • falcon01

        No, I work 3rd shift, 11:00pm – 7:00am. our company is a 24/7 deal.

        • NobodyYouKnow

          this has been:
          a series of comments referring to the original commentee in the 3rd person

          • FuRrY321

            Commentee or commentator? :?

          • NobodyYouKnow

            umm, either?

        • Frank

          Meh, it was worth the shot. Last person I met who worked that schedule was in the U.S. army, so I figured that was the least likely case

  13. CalaverX11

    That’s the most animated I’ve ever seen Max.

  14. Pokeblue

    Lol! Wow, Max is really just wanting to do this.

    I guess that’s why Tarot can’t see THAT far into the future, the spirits probably just don’t mind when it’s maybe a day down the road.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      They’re like Snulbug.

      If you don’t get that reference find a copy of Anthony Boucher’s “The Compleat Werewolf” and read it. Before you do anything else. I mean it.

  15. Angelkitt

    *rubs her head* I forsee… Max becoming even stupider after she looks into his mind… that or she’ll get the wrong memory and totally mess up.

    • FuRrY321

      perhaps get a memory of him secretly cosplaying, then embarrass him in front of Peanut and Grape?

  16. valerio

    mwhahahahahahh, grovel, base feline, grovel!
    plus, for the final scorn, SPOT will save the day.

    • Frank

      “Oh, sorry Peanut. I wasn’t supposed to include your fanart? It’s in your memories!”

      • gagi

        ooo that would be hilarious :) …. a few dogs with cat’s tails in the pridelands … arff
        i can’t wait to see what comes next :)

        @rick: we know you’re not kidding :P

    • NobodyYouKnow

      combine ideas of this comment with the ideas of the one just before it and you get…
      whith special appearence by:

      • NobodyYouKnow

        by “just before it” I mean by Anglekitt

  17. root

    Poor Tarot, it is so tiresome being the universe’s cheat code.

    • ShadyKitsune

      Up up down down left right left right B A Start? A B A C A B B?
      How do you use THOSE codes with a psychic dog?

      • FuRrY321

        She’s not actually a psychic dog, she’s a psychic dog robot developed by SeGRA (Secret Government Robot Association). So she has buttons which you can press, but you either have to be psychic to press the primary override buttons in her mind, or know exactly where she’s ticklish.

        • Valerio

          SeGRA is pure win!

          • NobodyYouKnow

            how about ODNETNIN:
            Organization of Developing Nefariously Eccentric Telepaths that Never Insist on Normality
            (spell it backwards)

    • Ekevoo

      She takes it pretty well actually. I want to see more of her. :3

  18. pet_fox123

    tarot can only mind meld with eanut because she doesn’t want to go rummaging through max or grapes head and find anythign she shouldn’t or possibly hit a feline mental defeance

    • FuRrY321

      What on earth would a ‘feline mental defence’ be? Mental hairballs? 8O

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s not strictly a defense. It’s just that cats are REALLY creepy sometimes, when you stop to think about it. Pulling wings off flies then eating the flies creepy. Give a cat opposable thumbs and a mouse to play with and you’ll have a real horror show…

        • Ekevoo

          Yup! Creepiness, that’s us cats. >:3

  19. Nightfirex

    Yep Tarot is now my new favorite character. done and done

    • IHazAName

      high 5!….er, 4 in their case. XD

  20. Haleybunbun

    Is it just me or did Max’s ears suddenly got fixed?

    • Takkisis

      I know rite when that happen

      • Max Wolfe

        You guy’s have to look closer in the panels at how his ear is slightly turned where you dont see the shade of black which is where the bite mark is.

    • Nohbody

      No, he just has his head turned so the damaged ear is edge-on to the viewer. Especially in the first two panels, the uneven edge hints at the damage we’d see in a head-on view.

    • Frank

      Same deal as always. We’re looking at the ear from an edge, so we see the cut head-on. Notice there’s a sort of zig-zag outlining Max’s right ear.
      Perspective. She is an evil queen.

      • NobodyYouKnow

        you’re all wrong! tarot is obviously a healer, too, who’s presence is efacing his bite mark!
        ^tarot quote^

        • FuRrY321

          Is that like fixing? or is that like defacing, where you damage something?

          • NobodyYouKnow

            interchangeable with “erasing”

          • FuRrY321

            Next time I’m erasing something really hard, so hard my desk wobbles, and somebody asks me, “What are you doing?” I’ll answer: “I’m efacing!”

          • NobodyYouKnow

            another in our legion of word nerds!
            ^lengthy and sinister guffaw^

  21. Frank

    “Your majesty! I gravel at your feet! (kisses feet)”
    “It’s not gravel, it’s grovel! And don’t! He’s not the king!”

    • NobodyYouKnow

      lion king!

      • Frank

        I was wondering if anyone would get the reference

        • Solario the Visored

          Heehee, it took me a second, but I got it. :)

  22. James319

    when you REALLY want something XD

  23. Salenstormwing

    Oh geez, poor Max is laying it on thick. It’s a good thing Peanut read the books and loves the series.

    • Stevie Maxwell

      Does this mean that Spot (Superdog) will make an appearance to save one of them from being speared in the face?

      PS: Saso deserved to die anyway.

      • Shad_Phoenix

        Ooh, I hope so! He might be a little out of place if Peanut writes his dailogue, though :p

  24. Cid

    Oh I bet he’d react fairly well to Grave grovelling at his feet.

    • FuRrY321

      Grave? Darnit, is it just me or is nobody spelling anything right lately? Or am I just tired from the LAN party I went to (24 hours straight, woohoo!) and I’m not interpreting things how they should be?

      • Firewing

        Actually, i read that perfectly, it’s just you. :P

        • NobodyYouKnow

          that’s evil

  25. Tosxychor

    So wait… Peanut would want Max to continue licking his feet… after he’s got up? That’s… a disturbing mental image, at best. xP

    • GameCobra

      not what you think, i assure you. In most cartoons these days when someone has something they really want, they immediately grovel over it only for that person to show no interest in groveling, but also correct him that he never told him to stop either, to be either mean spirited, devious or just to scare them.

      Of course, Rick kids!

      • Tosxychor

        I was kidding too :p just pointing out a funny miscalculation in the alt text (which was for the gigges anyway).

  26. ShadyKitsune

    I sure hope Tarot doesn’t stumble upon Peanuts *ahem* ART!

    • NobodyYouKnow

      Aaahhhhhhhhhh! blast from the past!

    • 1PlayerD

      Wow things have changed!

      • FuRrY321

        Especially the art! (and I’m sure the artist has changed over the time since that comic, too!)

  27. MagicalSarai

    Oh May… how much do you annoy me? Oh well… at least now everything is dependent upon Peanut being nice. Plot twist time! >:)

  28. Legendario 777

    This is really getting interesting =3 !!!

  29. Colin

    I smell a gryffe in the future.

    • Frank

      He’s a spirit?

  30. valerio

    Tarot looks xtra cute when she’s upset :D

  31. Squival

    While your down there…

  32. PolsVoice

    But if you reach into the future to get the memories of a book your going to read, wouldn’t that make you have to read it, even if you didn’t want to?

    • NobodyYouKnow

      of course! but not right now!

  33. Maark30

    I think the problem is she is psybound to Penut so she needs to get the information for the images from his mind. He is the storage disk for the image files so to speak

  34. Wolf Pup TK

    Oh god… with Peanut’s memory it’ll probably end up looking like one of his comics. ;D

    • Edam is tasty

      And who but Peanut can play Spot (Superdog)?

      • Edam is tasty

        The answer is nobody.

        • NobodyYouKnow

          well, if you insist

  35. Kit Mayer

    A cat, bowing to a DOG??? (and lo, as I opened the sixth seal; and sun became as sack cloth and the moon as blood…)

    • Maark30

      Well we do have dogs and cats living together so why not mass hysteria.

      • FuRrY321

        Because I’m not ready for Revelation yet! :D

        • Firewing

          “Tooooo Laaaaaaaaaate!”

          ^Fifty points if you can Guess which comic that’s from~^

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Changes by Matt Howarth?

          • NobodyYouKnow

            Hey! I’m the one who gives out useless points here! (argent stonecutter knows what im talking about)

          • Silver Guardian

            I’m gonna say “Concession”.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      And the angel clothed all in white opened the Iron Book, and a fifth rider appeared in a chariot of burning ice, and there was a snapping of laws and a breaking of bonds and the multitudes cried “Oh God, we’re in trouble now!”

  36. Authur

    You know, I really have to ask who her owner is. Anybody have that question cross their minds before? O_o

    • Leinad

      … maybe she’s a stray? she did show up totally out of the blue

      • Tom

        I dunno, she DOES have a rather fancy collar, unless it comes with the job or something.

      • Valerio

        1) she would’ve been identified as a feral from the local k-9 cops
        2) she lives with the cat Sabrina, just like several mixed pet couples in this neighborhood

        1+2 = Stray NOT

      • Frank

        Tarot lives with Sabrina, and we know Sabrina has an owner, because he/she hates mice

  37. FuRrY321

    Boyohboy, looking back at all the comments, I seem to have a part in every conversation. Also, I really enjoy using italics and bolded lettering, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, yesno? (I love that word)

  38. Hoheh

    Peanut is missing out on prime friend-slave time.

  39. HonorèDerazey

    I wish I would’ve read the Pridelands. I don’t need the “spirits” to know the up coming comics will be talking about parts in the Pridelands I won’t understand because I didn’t read it. =( Heck, I didn’t even know such a thing as the Pridelands existed until I started reading Housepets…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I think the Pridelands series in Housepets only exists in the Housepets world.

      So we all wish we woulda read them. :D

      • HonorèDerazey

        Oh… Well I feel stupid… >.>

        • FuRrY321

          Perhaps you could start a Pridelands book? If you’re not a writer, that’s fine – neither am I.
          When I searched “Pridelands” to see if there really was such a thing, only results related to The Lion King appeared.
          Maybe Pridelands has to do something with Lion King? After all, Peanut’s fan-comic did have a Hyena in it.

          • NobodyYouKnow

            reply to FuRrY if you want to join us in writing this epic book. by the way FuRrY, you’re writing a book now.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m pretty sure that the Housepets Pridelands is their equivalent of Jungle Emperor/Lion King. We know how buff feral wolves are, and how domestic dogs react to them, so the feral lions in the Housepets world must really be something.

            “But there’s a LION on the bag!”

          • HonorèDerazey

            Will there be cake??

          • FuRrY321

            No. The cake is a lie.
            But there will be Ice Cream! (But only Neapolitan.)

          • HonorèDerazey

            But… I thought pie was a lie. D:

          • NobodyYouKnow

            so… no team of literary artists?

  40. anthroguy101

    Man what people wouldn’t do for hallucinogens.

    • Maark30

      Great, now everytime I see Tarot I’m gonna be thinking that she is a blackbag project from some org to make a living form of ‘ACID’????

  41. RockstarRaccoon

    This is an interesting way to cause a more chaotic storyline…

  42. Lance

    Max is turning into quite the unlikeable character… sort of like Bino Lite but without the broken bones or rank stupidity.

    The comeuppance will be interesting.

    • Valerio

      And maybe Grape will at last understand he’s just a manipulator and is taking advantages of her.

    • Hoheh

      Max actually doesn’t bother me much. A highly-experience cat, with a violentandcynical girlfriend, who lives in a house with Bino, who gets energy from being annoying? And he still is friendly to most people? Seems likable to me.

      • Hoheh


      • Hoheh

        violent and cynical*
        Habit of fixing my typos is troublesome…

  43. The game

    Has anyone else noticed that this is the 3rd time Peanut’s feet have been mentioned and/or seen in this arc?

    • NobodyYouKnow


    • FuRrY321

      no. Why go to such lengths as to mention the creepy way you did?
      Do you have a foot fetish or something? (Or rather, a paw fetish?)

  44. Jitterbunny

    so if i may ask, will there ever come a day where pride lands will exist outside of the house pets comic strip?

    • Hoheh

      That, my friend, is anyone’s guess. I’d read it.

  45. ShiroNoOokami

    I like where this is headed.

  46. Fuzzypaws

    I know who that alt text was for :3
