  1. Typhon

    Yes! Finally Tarot is back! And Sabrina too.

    • Kytan

      yeah bout time… now when are we gonna see a strip with tarot and peanut together again??? thats the real wait!!

      • Frank

        Maybe next year if Grape has anything to do with it

        • e

          grape have feeling for peanut, too.

          • NexusWulf

            How you all Can so so so … *plz put the finished sentence here :3*

          • psychoJoker36

            BLAM! ?

    • Maros

      Speaking of which, her eyes turned green in panel 3, but then back.

      • MagicalSarai

        That is because she was accessing her powers to see “the future”! *waves hands mysteriously*

        • e

          *joins in the mysteriousy waving of the hand*

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            “These are not the droids you are looking for…”

  2. psychoJoker36

    Sabrina can speak?

    • psychoJoker36

      WAIT A MINUTE!!! RICK MADE A BLAM! !!!

      • Surge

        Do Tarrot’s eyes usually change color?

        • psychoJoker36

          1) they turn green when she foresees
          2) BLAM! is what is replaced on HALO3 when you try to put something vulger as text.
          Rick made a BLAM!

          • Frank

            So a “Blam!” is a bleep with a halo?

          • psychoJoker36

            No, it’s a bleep IN Halo. 3.

          • Repicheep22

            Actually, BLAM stands for Big Lipped Alligator Moment (coined by the Nostalgia Critic). It refers to the singing alligator scene in All Dogs Go To Heaven. A BLAM is an incident that has no bearing on the overall plot and is never referenced again, like the cutaway clips in Family Guy.

          • psychoJoker36

            I want you to type a vulger word into HALO 3 and tell me I’m wrong again, vieman

          • Gaboris

            Okay I got it what a “BLAM!” is, but where is that in this strip? O_O”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I see no BLAM here. I see another misleadingly named ride.

          • psychoJoker36

            In irony, I am not capable of explaining it, due to rating reasons

        • Argent Stonecutter

          As the actress said to the bishop.

    • Frank
      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Well yeah but she literally had only said six words total before and had not even spoken since the art change. She says more than that in the second panel.

    • Skytower

      She’s spoken before. She gave Spo to Fido, remember?

    • rWolf1991

      Nice joker you almost made me think that!!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I did the research. Sabrina speaks in 3 out of the 5 pages she has been in.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Yeah, she doesn’t speak in the one where Tarot is talking in Peanut’s mind right before Pete gets released, or in her first appearance, where she was very, um, aggressively silent.

      • Hypergenesis

        Further research!
        She spoke

        3 out of the 9 panels prior to this strip

        6 out of 13 including this strip.

    • psychoJoker36

      Then the alt text is VERY misleading

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      HOW DO YOU READ SO FAST?

      • psychoJoker36

        I have had dreams about particular Housepets characters… character… Grape…. But no need for details, I’m just that BLAM! good

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Wait, you dream about Grape? Well, I suppose that’s about on par with dreams of Zerg Headcrab Zombies ona space ship that has a small desert in it.

          • psychoJoker36

            Sure. Say, have you taken note yet that your tag involves Batman, whilst mine involves Joker? I find that wierd

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I have. I excuse our Internet-friendship by saying that Batman Forever (the one in which Val Kilmer plays Batman) only has TwoFace and the Riddler as bad guys.

          • psychoJoker36

            True. So therefore, you get to live

          • Gaboris

            Batman and Joker, yeah that’s funny, but it’s funnier that TwoFace and Joker both died in “Dark knight”. XD

          • FuRrY321

            Wait, Daisy’s a psychic, too?!
            8O
            *kabloowee!*

          • Hypergenesis

            @sonic

            you sure you’re not “peanuting” it with this? http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/10/30/which-plans-witch-plans/

          • psychoJoker36

            @Gaboris. Only the actor who played Joker died, not the character

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            As far as we know, Daisy in NOT psychic. BUT ONLY AS FAR AS WE KNOW.

            Any farther than that, and Rick only knows what’s going on.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            @hyper no ai cumpletly sur it wuz a dream and daisy wuz on a broom stick and apperently ai wuz chasing her and she looked back @ me exept she look kinda mad :(

    • thegamist

      yeah but she’s normaly quiet
      First comic of the arc a mouse named spo

      • thegamist

        Sorry Frank

  3. yoyodude

    yay tarot and sabrina!

  4. Surge

    Not even 30 seconds and there are three comments! Spoilsport….. Haven’t heard that one in a while XD

    • Frank

      “party pooper” is falling a bit out of favor

      • Surge

        Ha ha, Well, anyway, It is late in this part of the world… well, actually it is quite early, Catch you on the flip-side! (*coughs* Housepets! best comic ever *coughs*

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          )

          • psychoJoker36

            *coughs*

          • Hypergenesis

            Is there something contagious here?

            Nah, *cough*

          • psychoJoker36

            Unless it’s *cough* the re*coughcough*turum of *cough* ZOMBO*cough*SIS!!!!!!!!*chough*!!!!!!!!!

          • psychoJoker36

            I would know what you mean if you had said Kellis-Amberlee, but as for the existance of the Kellis-Amperlee virus, I hold no clue

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh whatever. You know what I mean.

            : P

            Has the second book come out yet?

          • psychoJoker36

            I’m not sure. Google it. I’m still waitin on the American release of the 4th Skullduggery Pleasent book

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I went to her website, it’s not supposed to come out until May 2011

    • NexusWulf

      you know Spoiling is the World Wide Web Sport i mean read the comments everywhere like youtube and other *idk which i should say* atleast spoiling is the best sport in the WWW

  5. Oren Otter

    When her eyes glow green like that, i wonder if that’s the Spirit Dragon being a spoilsport.

    • Frank

      I think the Spirit Dragon tells her things; but she has her own personality, and chooses what of it to reveal aloud

    • Wilford B. Wolf

      Why do I get the feeling this will become a PLOT POINT somewhere down the line (Sabrina almost drowning, eh?)

      • FuRrY321

        Spirit Dragon becoming frustrated with Sabrina, but Fido comes in and saves the day?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          No way. I can see Pete doing something like that, but Spirit Dragon seems to get along very well with “low-order” beings.

    • 7ance

      I want to know how the dragon knows what’s going to happen…and in three years WILL Sabrina almost drown or will rick forget about the prediction?

  6. Wolfswift

    Just because you’re an all knowing dragon doesn’t mean you need to rub it in Taro!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Rubbing it in taro is better than rubbing it in poi.

    • psychoJoker36

      Your avvi so fits your comment

  7. Valerio

    SUPERYAY!! thwm two gals are soooo cooooll!

  8. AmericanOtter

    Hey, yeah, I noticed that the green eyes…. and yet… Sabrina seems a little… okay with it, like saying Spoilsport… I wonder if Sabrina is special?

    But it does seem that way at the moment….

    anyway…. I think you are reading too far into the future Tarot…. They were focused on the present situation… but anyway…. cool comic… and funny and yay… I get to hear Sabrina finally.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s like something from Pratchett. The real problem with omniscience is you can see everything, and being able to focus on the current planet and century takes practice. Three years counts as the present.

      • Thoth

        Just to confuse matters, considering that the higher-order bunch have stated that there are an infinite number of low-order dimensions, this implies that there are an infinite number of dimensions that are currently-identical to any given dimension but have differing futures.

        Ergo, she could – at three years out – be seeing the wrong one and there would be no way of knowing that at the moment.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Yes there are an infinite number of low-order dimensions, but IF you follow the theory that small changes will not result in LASTING branches, but that they will instead collapse back into one, you can also assume that SOME things would be constant in many of the alterverses.

          NOT ONLY THAT! Some would argue that perhaps those alterverses are COMPLETELY different, as they are referred to as DIMENSIONS, not UNIVERSES. THUS, if we assume this is true, then we can also assume that other dimensions would have telltale differences and that Tarot would be able to distinguish between them with a little effort, even if they are similar and not populated by tentacle monsters.

          BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! With the Spirit Dragon acting as an Amplifier/Guide, Tarot should easily be able to tune out any alternate dimensions or universes and focus solely on her own, ESPECIALLY given that it is the low-order dimension/universe that Spirit Dragon appears to be most interested in at the moment. I had to specify low-order because she might have responsibilities like taking out the garbage and checking the mail in her own dimension/universe.

          Oh man, oh man, you were right, I’m wall-of-texting. Oh, this is bad. I’m EVOLVING INTO A SERIOUS COMMENTER WITH PLAUSIBLE AND RELEVANT IDEAS!!!

          • Thoth

            Oh, I’m not proposing branching at all! That’s a whole other bit of confusion, since branching is never really infinite, but merely unreasonably large (and, in quantum theory, will simply result in recombinations, since a large number of possible pasts could lead to any given current situation).

            And yes, indeed, in an infinite system you can find not only infinite identical universes, but an infinite number of universes with each possible variation in state, natural laws, and situation.

            Thus not only will the Spirit Dragon and Tarot have infinite numbers of identical universes to deal with, but infinite numbers. of near-identical universes, and infinite numbers of divergent universes, each with infinite numbers of variants.

            Even aleph-1 is a big place, and we’re in no way sure that a mere aleph-1 is what our higher order beings were referring to…

            Wall-of-Text is catching isn’t it? Once you have ideas, you want to put them out there and get feedback…

          • psychoJoker36

            Chuck Norris. I have just answered all of your questions

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s possible to have an infinite number of universes where all universes you examine are still uniquely identifiable. For example, there may be only a finite number of universes with any particular set of physical laws, or the universes may be enumerated in a way that similar enumerations are never applied to similar universes (think of it as a quantum-cryptographically sound cosmic hash function).

          • Squidfletchee

            I wondered to myself another spike would do since I’m already crucified. . .

            Actually, dimensions are different branches of occurrences happening in the same universe, they are called alternate dimensions due to the fact that these are the dimensions that the subject would enter given a certain action was done. Universes by themselves are parallel to other dimensions since they don’t interact with each other.

            Higher-order beings are entities that live in a planar or multi-planar existence such that they are able to travel through either time, dimension or universes.

            Low order beings are entities that can only move through space. In geographical analogy
            Peanut = point
            Tarot = line
            HP Universe = area
            SD = Tesseract

            Well, I found out that another spike hurts. . reaaaal bad.

          • Pax

            …and I thought I was a geek.

          • Squidfletchee

            Don’t worry, you can keep on thinking you’re a geek.

            I’m a cardboard ferret and that can’t stop you from being a geek.

          • Thoth

            What I’m wondering is whether the “higher order beings” are actually capable of dealing with infinite sets directly or whether they’re only capable of dealing with finite – if possibly very very large – sets of universes. The one implies infinite information-processing and precision, the other limits the possible long-range accuracy of prediction.

            Of course, we’ll probably never know – but I think the apparent fallibility of Pete and the Spirit Dragon suggests finite capabilities and predictive abilities.

            This has drifted a bit into general multiverse and set theory a bit. In the interests of consistent tems, and of helping anyone who’s interested but confused, there’s a nicely-done introduction to the theory over here; http://space.mit.edu/home/tegmark/multiverse.pdf . Sadly, at this point we can’t even be sure if we’re dealing with a differing aspects of a single reality or with a level (differing hubble volumes), level two (other post-inflation bubbles of spacetime), level three (alternate quantum realities – although this doesn’t actually add anything to levels one and two), or level four (alternate fundamental structures) multiverse.

    • FuRrY321

      You “hear” Sabrina? ;)

      Quick, what does she sound like??

      • Frank

        …female?

      • Maros

        I would guess dark goth type of speech

  9. IceKitsune

    Yay Sabrina said something and Tarot (and Dragon) is being a spoil sport lol. I love the Alt Text that was great

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      What’s the alt text say?

      • Frank

        “*gasp* Sabrina said words”

        Don’t get it? Check all of her appearances. She hardly ever speaks

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I’ve hardly even SEEN her. Probably busy being a psychic-in-training.

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            And dating Fido.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            But only secretly, so I guess it would take up either twice as much or only half the time of regular dating.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            @elwood u should get an avie X )

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            Why? This one sort of vaguely looks like me.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            All I see is your name.

      • Hypergenesis

        *gasp* sabrina said words

  10. Val Kilmer Batman

    Ha! Nice. I think Sabrina might start standing a little farther from the water now.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Her panel 3 face just cracks me up.

  11. desufnoC

    why is her shoulder green?

    • Frank

      Hadn’t noticed until you said it, and now its creeping me out

    • Typhon

      RICK MADE A BOO BOO

      Or the spirit has taken over her fur too.

    • Hopper2004

      It’s her collar… :P

    • Hypergenesis

      Collar! ^^

    • lightwolf21

      Probably the color of her collar.

  12. Hopper2004

    Lol.
    I don’t get it.. Help…

  13. FunkyChicken

    Sabrina changed her hair?

    • Hypergenesis

      Nope, she just grew it.

    • Frank

      I thought so too, but nope

  14. Valerio

    hey, folks…
    three
    years
    from
    now.
    THREE YEARS MORE OF HOUSEPETS! MEGAYAY!

    • Frank

      Or maybe, Rick will have to cut his run short before then to avoid showing it :(

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Or maybe it happens off camera

        • Valerio

          spoilsports, you two are >:(

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            What ever happened to your avatar?

          • Valerio

            when I use this computer, for some reason it keeps being blank despite my numerous and even violent attempts to correct the problem.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I’m so sorry for your loss.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Have you tried erasing the email feld and entering it in again?I know capitalization affects whether or not the gravatar shows up…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Valerio: try a different browser.

          • FuRrY321

            Argent: How would that help, mine works on every browser I try it on (Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, IE 8). Are you thinking it’s a cache/cookie problem?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Yeh, I’m thinking it’s a cache/cookie/saved text/etc… problem, and a different browser woud eliminate the “when I use this computer” weirdness and localize it to browser weirdness.

      • FurryNerd

        Well, he probably has a heap of notes and ideas for the storyline, maybe even a timeline… BUT WAIT! Sabrina almost drowns!?! MAKE NOTES SABRINA! TELL FIDO!!! D:

        • Hypergenesis

          I’m sure he’ll be the one to save her should that happen, unless she was catnapped and the culprit is making a run for it.

  15. Valerio

    Sabrina is SO cute! No wonder Fido fell for her! :D

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      ai would O_o

  16. Midnight Wolf

    You’d think she’d be more concerned about the whole ‘nearly drown’ part of the conversation.

    • Hypergenesis

      It’s three years from now so I don’t think she’ll be worried yet.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Plus, it’s NEARLY drown. So she knows that the drowning won’t kill her.

        • Hypergenesis

          and is also sure that she will live at least three more years ^^

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I would have said “Exactly.”, but I posted that below so it counts as a duplicate comment. Whatever.

            The point is: Exactly.

      • Frank

        Three years… isn’t that like 10 years in dog years?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I dunno, but I don’t think that cat years are the same as dog years anyway.

  17. Koda

    Her shoulder’s green because of the collar, guys.

    • Frank

      Tarot has a collar?

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Yes.

        It’s what her Ankh tag hangs from.

        We just haven’t seen an owner (if she has one, we don’t even know that. The collar could just be camoflauge).

        • Hypergenesis

          It’s more of an “all-seeing eye”, Sabrina’s the one with the Ankh.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Yeah, jus caught that. I think Tarot’s is an Eye of Isis or an Eye of Osyris or something like that. I read it in one of the older comments.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Woops, Sabrina has the Ankh tag. I forgot what Tarot’s tag is called.

          I’m running on exitement, here.

          • FurryNerd

            Eye of horus, the bird thing ( why was i going to say pokemon IDK xD)

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I wanted to say Horus up above, but I was worried that I was starting to stray into Eye of Chaos territory.

          • FurryNerd

            Eye of Chaos?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            No, wait, meant Eye of Terror. I’m trying to say I was afraid of screwing up an accidental 40k reference. And then screwed up an intentional 40k reference.

          • Thoth

            It could be any of several different egyptian eye symbols. Afterall, they were used across many centuries, drawn by many different people, and here have been re-interpreted as tags for pets. Variations are to be expected.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            eye of ramalack :3

          • FuRrY321

            Eye of Rick.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Eye of Dragon

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            eye of the tiger ;p ?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Thank you!

      • Kitch

        Yes, usually it;s concealed by the extra fur around her neck. You can see it off and on in her comics.

        And the Eye is the Eye of Horus/Ra. (It’s called either or.)

  18. ReCreate

    Wow, we haven’t seen sabrina in officially one eternity.

  19. Kytan

    HA!!!!! Rick just wrote himself into a corner with that one!!!! three years from now there will have to be a comic with sabrina’s near drowning atleast mentioned!!!! take that Steve the librarian!!!

    • Frank

      Now that I think about it, he could just keep us busy with an arc occurring elsewhere. Remember this year we were supposed to get water guns during Easter? We were too busy with the Imaginate: Pridelands arc to do it

      • Kytan

        None the less it would be [b]mentioned[/b] at one point!

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Unless he already PLANNED to do something like that, in which case he did NOT write himself into a corner but instead wrote himself TOWARDS a planned MILE MARKER in the OUTLINE that most writers have in where they want their STORY to GO.

          IMPORTANT words go in CAPSLOCK because CAPSLOCK is the new BOLD.

          • Kytan

            ….well excuse me princess…

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            : P

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I poke fun at thee

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Also your avatar and your statement look like they go together, which always makes me happy.

            ^_^

            oh, man, I can’t believe I’m actually posting that emoticon.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Yeah, my manliness attribute just went down by, like, ten points. And I didn’t have a very high score in the first place

          • Argent Stonecutter

            “Foreshadowing… your key to quality literature!”

    • Hypergenesis

      Global warming?

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        If we ever see it somehow it will turn out to be something trivial like she falls in the bathtub or something.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I’m imagining an ice skating on a frozen lake incident. Believable, scary, survivable, something young’uns do.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          wen ever ai hear trivial ai always think of ishkabible :/
          *GASP* RICK U SHOULD USE THAT WORD IN UR COMIC!!! :D

  20. Repicheep22

    Show off!

    • Frank

      (grabs a deactivated switch and puts it on display)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

          GET BACK HERE YOU DARNED FERRET SWITCH FLIPPER! SQUIDFLETCHER MCALEAXE IS ON THE JOB!

          • Hypergenesis

            Waaaah! Psycho Batman switch! Deactivate! Deactivate!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            YOU CANNOT ESCAPE SQUIDFLETCHER MCALEAXE! IT CANNOT BE DONE! YOU HAVE BEEN WEIGHED! YOU HAVE BEEN MEASURED! AND YOU HAVE BEEN FOUND TO BE A PRIME CANDIDATE FOR SQUIDFLETCHING!

          • FurryNerd

            He is made of wood, and he’s exactly 110% above eleventy feet, right? weight and measurement?

          • Hypergenesis

            But I’m allergic to sharp. . pointy squids. . .

            actually, shoot it into my mouth.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            YOU MISUNDERSTAND. YOU SHALL BE FLETCHED AS A SQUID.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            OOPS! I FORGOT THE “!”!

          • Hypergenesis

            Actually I’m made of biodegradable cardboard, 110% above scribble-scribble inches, weighs less than 2kg (excluding my backdrop) and I have an approximately 7 in waistline.

          • Hypergenesis

            In that case, I shall resume my incessant running and wailing.

            Waaaah! Psycho Batman! (again, meep) Helping me!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            No, FurryNerd, it’s an ole medieval thing or somethig.

            “You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting.”

            old style trash talk meaning something like: dude, seriously, you suck.

            I, however, have used the beginning to assert that he has been tested or observed, then change the end to say tha he’s a good choice if I’m looking for a “volunteer” for the “squidfletching” process.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            RELAX! I SHALL MAKE THIS AS PAINLESS AS POSSIBLE!

          • Hypergenesis

            NEVER RIGHTEOUS SQUIDFLETCHER! FOR I HAS NO NERVES TO FEEL TO BEGIN WITH!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            VERY WELL THEN! I CAPTURE YOU WITH A NET! NOW, THE PROCESS MAY BEGIN. TO THE WOODCHIPPER!

    Hey where are they in the name of steve the librarian anyways??? i mean we know their in the theme park but… wait did sabrina get that card from one of those fortune telling machines? those things rock!!!

    • Frank

      “Your weight and fate in your Theme Park World Funventure!™”

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        They should pay you to write those slogans. That was pretty good. And, surprisingly, less cheesy than most of them.

  22. BlueAnubis

    Your predictions are making me nervious. I me really, really ne- wait… spontainious wet fur contest?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      That’s goin’ smell.

      • Jakkal

        yeah but.. wet fur contest, I mean… wow…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Accident on the waterslide.

  23. dalonewolf25

    It’s a dragon-poof moment! Also, I’m surprised that Sabrina is out in the open. I mean, wasn’t she a serial killer or something?

    • Hypergenesis

      She’s the least harmful entity in the housepets universe ^^

      • dalonewolf25

        reality, but not supposedly?

        • Hypergenesis

          missed that word, but there wasn’t an edit button ^^

    • Valerio

      she’s Fido’s girlfriend, which means HUGE social taboo :(

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        But none of the pets except for Grape, Peanut, and Spo (and possibly Tarot, as distinct from the spirit dragon, if Sabrina trusts her enough) actually KNOW that she is Fido’s girlfriend. And they don’t know that Peanut and Grape know about them.

        • Frank

          They don’t know they know that they know :P

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            *90 degree head tilt to my right*

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I think she’s probably one of those people Jo are really shy around people they don’t know, but really exhuberant around the people they do. The only people she has ever interacted with on camera are Fido and Tarot.

    • Hypergenesis

      I noticed the title and maybe. . .

      Psychic projections?
      with matching telekinetic interactions?

      • Nohbody

        … or just playing off an old fortune cookie joke. :P

  24. thewhitedragon

    nearly drown? wow, she’s being a bit, fatalistic…

  25. metaecho

    and all this time I thought they where giving me icecram…

  26. nameless

    You know we never really get to see that much of Sabrina do we?

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Yeah. And I think she may be moving her way on up into my favorite characters list.

  27. Hypergenesis

    What’s a nudules?

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Exactly.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Probably the lawyer-friendly Housepets-equilivant of “Dippin’ Dots.” Which is a frozen treat that constantly markets itself as “The Ice Cream of the Future”…despite the fact it was invented over 20 years ago.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Dippin Dots are lame. You can’t get any actual satisfaction. Which is, of course, the point.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          *singing* I can’t get no… satisfaction.

          • Hypergenesis

            Oh, woe is thee! Woe is thee! Woe, woe, woe, woe, woe. . .

            It is so terrible, this fate which has befallen thee! How horrible, how dreadful, how ghastly!

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          Val do u need a hug ;) *opens arms*

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            *hug*

      • Frank

        “lawyer-friendly”?

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      The real question here is: What are theyADE out of?

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Sorry, what are they MADE out of?

        It kind of loses it’s “OH SNAP” quality when I have to repeat it.

      • Hypergenesis

        Dun Dun Duuuuuun. . . . . .

        Nonsense, you just have to follow it so.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          dan DANUH nuh NAH NAA! SNAKE EATER!

          • Hypergenesis

            That’s the part near the end of the crescendo right?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            It’s actually supposed to be right before the singing starts, but I put the “SNAKE EATER” there for reference.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      They’re the tentacles of the friendly frozen-treat spaghetti monster. Haven’t you heard of “his nuduley appendage”?

      • Hypergenesis

        Frozen pasta? You’ll bring Italian Rage!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I’m not afraid, for I have both pasta and antipasta.

          • Hypergenesis

            you created antipasta?

            what for?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            A true taste explosion.

          • Hypergenesis

            No no, you can’t do that. Pasta makes a taste explosion so you need to have antipasta make a taste implosion.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You eat pasta and antipasta at the same time, and get a literal explosion of taste in your mouth. Pop rocks for REAL MEN.

          • Hypergenesis

            Oh noes, Sabrina’s. . .

            better not say it, Fido might hear. . .

  28. Thoth

    Well, there still may or may not be a meaningful distinction between psychic abilities and magic in the Housepets universe, but evidently at least some powers are trainable abilities. This strengthens the theory that Tarot possessed psychic abilities before becoming the Avatar of the Spirit Dragon, since there’s no reason to expect her to be familair with training exercises if her abilities were all bestowed – and, if all of Tarot’s abilites were bestowed, there would be no reason to expect Sabrina to be able to develop such abilities anyway.

    Ergo, while Pete, the Spirit Dragon, and the Great Kitsune evidently possess a great deal of supernatural power, there may be many others who can affect the use of their abilities, some strong enough to have a serious impact on their activities, and possibly even local powers that could meet them on more or less equal terms.

    • Hypergenesis

      Following the logic though, Tarot should be able to foretell even without using the SD’s ability. . .

      It could also be that Tarot found out the Secret of the Universe and thought Sabrina how clairvoyance.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Maybe being an avatar simply enhances the qualities you already have? More of an amplification than the bestowing of new gifts.

        Megaphone v.s. Airhorn

        the airhorn makes it’s own sound, the megaphone just makes YOUR sound louder.

      • Hypergenesis

        I hate eating my own words but. . .

        Anyone else noticed how Tarot’s eyes are pure green only when she’s doing super(as in SUPER)natural acts?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Explained away by saying it’s the amplification effect of being an avatar. Her powers become stronger when she channels the Spirit Dragon.

      • Thoth

        Agreed. Whether or not she possessed that ability before becoming an avatar, if it’s something that more-or-less normal (or slightly psychic, if that’s even abnormal) pets can learn, then she has apparently had an excellent opprotunity.

        Still, the Spirit Dragon is probably a great deal better at it. On the other hand, the Spirit Dragon has as yet unrevealed motives and goals, hence everything she says needs to be taken with the proverbial grain of salt.

        • Rick Griffin

          I don’t think you need to say the grain of salt is proverbial–I don’t think anyone will assume it’s literal.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Really? Because I always carry this salt shaker around with me…

          • Thoth

            Ah well, we have enough readers with differing cultural backgrounds that I thought it best to state it. I would hate to be responsible for any confusion beyond that which I produce naturally.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            See yeah. If your doctor says you need to lower your sodium intake, an your psychologist tells you to take what people say with a grain of salt, who do you believe?

          • Hypergenesis

            WOT?

            (hahaha, line stealing is so awesome!)

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Your psychologist tells you to start taking what people say with a grain of salt, so when your doctor tells you to lower your sodium intake, who do you believe? As in, when people talk to you you eat a grain of salt.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            NEVER EXPLAIN A JOKE!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I felt a strange… compulsion almost…

          • Thoth

            Ah, you are beginning to catch the compulsion to explain everything.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            It’s… somehow it’s both horrifying and glorious.

          • Hypergenesis

            Yet terrifying nonetheless…

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      I thought it strengthens the theory that Tarot and Sabrina are siblings? (by human adoption of course)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’d ne’er ear that theory, though I like it. It would explain the similar tags, and the fact that they seem to be good friends.

        • Thoth

          It’s one of the inferences over on the character dossier’s thread, primarily based on the similar tag motifs and their being together on what appears to be a bed or couch late at night in this strip

          http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/11/23/so-cool/

          Ergo, a common owner seemed reasonably likely.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I see. I should visit these forums one day. They sound like magical, mystical places of learning and fellowship. Because I could figure out how to spell camerarderie(?).

            Perhaps I shall one day make the long, arduous journey and move my mouse over in that direction, and finally make the click of faith, thus to proceed into the blessed Internet-halls of the Forums.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I visited the forums, but I’m afraid of them. They’ll suck away my free time.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            HA! I just realized an alternate reason for them to be there. Everybody is out searching for Zach, so Sabrina heads over to Tarot’s house to see if their psychic powers can locate him.

            The flaw is how Sabrina knows Tarot has psychic powers…

            Then again, Tarot doesn’t exactly try to hide it.

          • Hypergenesis

            A little ointment to the burn, take their tags as gold and thee link is set.

          • Thoth

            Oh, there are a number of possible reasons for Sabrian and Tarot to be in the same place late at night (accident, visiting, roof is leaking and staying with a friend overnight, sleepover, etc, etc, etc) – which is why the notion that they may have the same owner is only an inference.

      • Hypergenesis

        We should just wait for the next cast update X)

    • Frank

      To the Dossier mobile!

  29. Val Kilmer Batman

    So… the title…

    yeah, all I can think of is that maye it refers to how some people believ that by adding “in bed” to the end of a sentence, it automatically becomes funnier. Any other ideas?

    • Hypergenesis

      Babylon Garden(s) is struck with a flood and Sabrina almost drowns. . .
      . . . in bed ? ? ?

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Be careful or you could fall for some tricks today…in bed.

    • Frank

      “*gasp* Sabrina said words … in bed”
      which would explain why it’s supposed to be surprizing

  30. BlueAnubis

    Lol, I just noticed the title. So who here actually does that with their fortune cookies?

  31. xhunterko

    You know, funny though. I was just thinking of a couple of the characters in a dangerous rescue type situation. Only it went horribly wrong and only one of them survived. Which, resulted in at least a few mental breakdowns. I’m sort of glad I’m not the writer here. Your readers would hate me.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Yeah, we kind of would.

      But you’re not, so we don’t.

      *Cheerful smile*

  32. Val Kilmer Batman

    What’s that green spatter in panel 3 next to Tarot’s nose?

    • Hypergenesis

      Feedback
      or ectoplasm. .
      or ether. .
      or mana. .
      or avatar channeling. . stuff.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’m suddenly tempted to activate the Rick-signal…

        but, unfortunatley, I think it’s still in the shop after SOMEBODY blew it up. Darn button pushers. Everybody knows it’s voice activated.

        Besides, must not abuse power, must not abuse power, must not abuse power.

    • Foxstar

      It’s like a flash of light signfiying her power has gone active. That’s all.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I thought that was what the eye thing was for?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Or are you referring to Sabrina’s powers?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Wait, it in the wrong panel for that.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s not an asterisk!

  33. Inu225

    I’m really enjoying this arc so far.
    I think its because the storyline doesn’t focus on a certain set of characters but a variety of characters.
    Setting everyone in a sandbox environment where they’re able to do anything they want is fun because you are able to get a deeper sense of each character and their persona.
    It’s like trying out different flavors of ice cream. Each flavor has its own color, style, and taste. It is only when you actually try them out that you discover something new and interesting about it.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Nice imagery.

      I like your style kid. How would you like to take pictures of spiderman?

      • Inu225

        Really? Oh goody!
        But I don’t know if I can complete with Peter Parker.
        For some reason he always seems to know exactly where Spiderman is.
        It like as if they’re one in the same. 0_o

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Realize your destiny, my son. You ARE Peter Parker!

    • Hypergenesis

      Now I have to go buy ice cream later to satisfy my craving. . .

  34. Val Kilmer Batman

    Has anybody else viewing fom a small screened device such as an iPhone or iPod that it looks like, in panel 2, when fully zoomed out, Sabrina is drinking tea?

    • Hypergenesis

      that’s ICE CREAM NUDULES

      • Hypergenesis

        reference: see panel 4

        Tarot is pointing to the white (paper?) bowl

      • Hypergenesis

        Argh. . .

        A derp to a derp. . .

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’m just saying that, zoomed out, it LOOKS Luke she’s HOLDING a TEA CUP.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          GOSH.

          • Hypergenesis

            that’s the derp.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh. Sorry about the gosh then.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Also, I’m saying it’s the PAPER from the MACHINE that looks like TEA CUP in my above comment.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          ALSO GOSH

          • Hypergenesis

            and that is the derp to the derp.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh, and also sorry about the also gosh.

      • Frank

        The Ice-cream nudles are the plate you put the cup down on, in this interpretation

    Sabrina’s new hairstyle is nice.

      Not my first time getting rebuked for horsing around, but still sorry mods and Rick.

      I’ll be sure to stay away from squidfletching next time.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’ll take this opportunity to apologise also, while avoiding the wall-o-comments we made above.

        Much shame, I am filled with.

        • Frank

          Maybe we need one of those Google tests
          “Are you sure you want to submit this? But are you really awake to be sure you’re sure? Quick! What’s 126 ÷ 3?”

          • Hypergenesis

            it’s seven times three times two!

      Pulsating old-timy Pack Man eyes.
      …even creepier.

    • yarrofox

      Wow…. I can even hear the “wacka wacka wacka..” Kinda creeps me out…

  38. Gaboris

    Okay so now ya guaranteed 3 more years of tension for your watchers who’ll be waitin for the story with Sabrina and that nearly drowning thing. Thx a lot… no realy, now my brain’ll have somethin to think aboot for THREE years! XD

    • Frank

      Well, what did you expect with the Grape-nut relationship practically resolved?

  39. Inu225

    @ Panel 3
    Funny thing about the concept “Happiest Place on Earth”.
    There’s a country in South Asia that actually created and uses a system called “Gross National Happiness” or GNH which measures the people’s well being to determine whether or not the country is happy.
    I think that’s pretty awesome.

    • Frank

      The former Kingdom of Bhutan. From 1972 to 2008, they used this instead of the gross domestic product. They were also one of the 20 least developed nations in the world. The Bhutanese have their reasons not to think it’s awesome.

    • Rick Griffin

      I think that HPC would be more telling (Happiness per capita)

  40. thegamist

    Yay tarot!
    and thats a long time ago that I saw sabrina
    those 2 WILL stay best friends

  41. Littleaeris

    Three years from now I’ll comment that it actually happened or didn’t happen and refer to this page =3

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Well hello there, how long have you been here?

  42. Greek Geek

    FINALLY. I have been waiting FOREVER for a strip with Tarot and Sabrina. IT WAS JUST DESTINED. >_>

  43. Secrettraveler

    eh…this is the second comic in line that I don’t quite get…at least I know now what the Chinese Buffet Express will probably be, and don’t worry Sabrina, I’m sure Fido will come to rescue three years later…

  44. Argent Stonecutter

    Psychic ADHD. They don’t make a pill strong enough for that. :D

    So, maybe FRIDAY we get to see a grumpy corgi bowled over like a stubby-legged bowling pin?

    • yarrofox

      Who bowled him over? Grape?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Getting bowled over, buried, rolled down stairs, that’s King’s job! “When in doubt, hurt the corgi”.

        I was thinking Bino and a giant Nerf gun.

        Grape would make sense. Even without threats.

        This one just came to mind: King on the pitcher’s mound, cut to Grape at the plate, cut back to POW with the ball flying overhead… and he’s on his back on the mound, “AUGH”… with a shoe flying in the air EVEN THOUGH HE DOESN’T WEAR SHOES.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I support this.

        • Thoth

          Hm. How about the Spirit Dragon has to depart as the focus of the game abruptly shifts in accordance with the rules (which are too complicated to be contained within a normal universe). Since she is, indeed, in love with Peanut, she mournfully leaves him the best present she can – allowing him to take on the role of Spot Superdog in the “real world” and thus REALLY annoying Bino.

  45. e

    ice cream nudules isn’t ice cream then what is it?

    • Hypergenesis

      frozen syrup or artificially sweetened liquid frozen to imitate ice cream?

  46. Salenstormwing

    Am I the only one that finds it sort of scary how nonchalant Tarot is to the idea that Sabrina will almost drown? Or Sabrina’s non-reaction to it?

    Just saying. I know if I heard that, I’d be like “OMG, I’m going to almost drown!”

    • Rick Griffin

      How do you know she doesn’t already know that

      • Argent Stonecutter

        That would make a good running gag.

        Tarot: … three years from now when you nearly drown.
        Sabrina: Will you stop talking about that, it will be SO embarrassing!

      • Salenstormwing

        Well, okay, you might have a point there. But still, Tarot made it sound like she didn’t see that, or maybe Sabrina did know it but didn’t put 2 + 2 = Banana together and… uh…

        Okay, metaphysics hurts my head. I do hope Fido is the one that saves her though. Because that would be so schmoopy awesome. Awwwww.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          2+2 may equal banana, but 2+banana = elephant, and in alabama, the tuscaloosa.

            It’s not hate, it’s fear. I’m afraid of it. It looks like you took a big bite of pasta and antipasta at the same time.

          • PuDdY15

  48. sonic id furreh!!!

    HEY RICK!!!!!!!!!
    does tarot got any owner :/?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s kind of implied that Tarot and Sabrina share an owner, but we haven’t met them yet.

      • Euclid

        Actually, Tarot could be staying close to Sabrina to keep her safe from Pete. He still needs an avatar and a trained psychic cat is probably better than a species confused human (dog?).

        Hmmm.. actually, given that Grape was his first choice, does she have the capacity to develope super powers? I mean, aside from her previously demonstrated powers of being smarter than most dogs, being able to jump to the top of the garage, and being a girl?

  49. Fenrari

    I’m loving the ahnk!

  50. WingedWolfGirl

    That is so awesome!
    I wish I knew what they were saying. :S

    • PuDdY15

      hmm maybeh teres an dictionary somewhere…..?

  51. yarrofox

    Yay!!!! She spoke!! now she kinda reminds me of Penelope Pussycat

  52. Tom Flapwell

    I went to Barcelona for the second time last month. I’ve had more fun in other cities, including Madrid.

    • Hypergenesis

      *gasp* an unbeliever.

      Just kidding, fun is subjective anyways.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        But happiness can be objectively measured!

        • Hypergenesis

          Aye, but it’s happiness (overall experience) and not fun (enjoyment) that can be measured.

          that’s like measuring the sweetness and the satisfaction you get from a bowl of ice cream nudules

          • Argent Stonecutter

            17.214, about?

          • Hypergenesis

            Yet the satisfaction differs from one to another, unless it just freezes the heck out of your brains.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Are you implying my calculations are in error?

          • Hypergenesis

            No, I merely said that satisfaction is not measurable in numbers but by words. You may put a scale for it but it wouldn’t be absolute nor objective but purely subjective that also depends on several factors including but not limited to emotional stability, time from last intake, appreciation, gullibility and understanding.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oh, I can account for that. That makes it … hmmm … 18.16.

          • Hypergenesis

            Wow, mine’s 18.13, oh dear. . . data discrepancies.

  53. PuDdY15

    u know wat else, u know wat else sabrina…….. ai forget. …….dont go glarin at meh.

    yes yes tarot confuses everybody…. even Peanut for example…. no i know nothin of their reltionshp! why do u wanna know? hmmmmm u wanna get some dirt on tarot for spoiling ur “fun”? ok! i’ll tell u everthin!

  54. FerreTrip

    “Where you gooooinnn?”
    “Barceloooonaaaa.”
    “……Oh.”

    X3;

    But yeah, um, Tarot/Spirit Dragon’s being a bit too literal here…

  55. FerreTrip

    And, erm, why point out Sabrina said words? She’s spoken before, like with her boyfriend…

  56. Mika

            Maybe we should send the mods some pie. I’m absolutely POSITIVE that lack of pie is part of the problem.

          • Rendak

            Yes, we must send them pie

          • Argent Stonecutter

            There is no pie. But there is a spoon.

          • Rendak

            Below comment was meant to be a reply

        • Rendak

          Is there cake?
          Also, Welcome to Forks, There is no spoon

          • Argent Stonecutter

            The cake is a pie. There is no pie. Therefore, there is no cake.

          • Rendak

            If there is no pie, how can the cake be a pie?

          • Rendak

            I see

          • Argent Stonecutter
          • Rendak

            That is quite the cake

    sorry i’m Late. Finnaly Tarot is Back! and so is sabrina. I hope Sabrina doesn’t find Spo on Fido’s head…

    • Hypergenesis

      Well, a latecomer can always be excused late as well.

      Anyways about Spo, I don’t think she’ll mind because he was only supposed to get rid of Spo FROM Sabrina.

    Yay! Sabrina Speaks!

          Eh?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Comments that may or may not have happened until you collapse the wave function (or, more precisely, entangle your state vector with their state vector) by observing them.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Plus, bowdlerized acronyms?

        • Rendak

          Where?

        • Rendak

          Ah, I see

        • the Art Wolf

          I admire your well-developed vocabulary. You must be an avid reader. It is a motivation for me to become more productive in my reading.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            When I was a young cub the old guy living next door was a retired editor. Of an encyclopedia. He loved playing scrabble. This tends to expand ones vocabulary beyond all reasonable bounds, though unfortunately without always providing a corresponding understanding of the terminology one acquires though this past-time.

            It took me years to “grow into” my stock of obscure words. :)

          • the Art Wolf

            Oh I love scrabble, though, none of my friends like to play it because I beat them all the time, even at my level. Not saying I’m don’t know much, but it’s that you give me the sense that there is so much more to learn on this planet and also beyond. I guess I just thought about this too much. Though I think you helped me realize how much I could be missing in my life. Even further than just expanding my vocabulary.

            Thank you. :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Well. Hem. Blushes.

  61. Rendak

    I just noticed that Sabrina wears an Ankh on her collar

  62. iHavezMyBirdo

    Shame that I forget characters after not seeing them or hearing their name for quite some time.

  63. janice239

    Is it because Tarot is the spirit dragon that her eyes light up and Sabrina’s don’t?

    • Hypergenesis

      Exactly!

      Though you might want to ctrl+f some of the things you notice, it could have already been answered and that would limit the comments list.

      (not that I’m helping in making it any shorter but. . .)

  64. ReCreate

    Wait what? Sabrina is nearly gonna drown in 3 years? OH NOES! :o

  65. PuDdY15

    *activates Rick dignal* Rick wat gave uz teh ideh ta start up housepets?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I was going to point you to http://www.housepetscomic.com/about/ but after reading it again I realize it doesn’t actually answer that question.

    • Hypergenesis

      Oh didn’t really notice this until now.

      Val said the Rick signal’s in the shop for repairs.

      and talk first THEN activate the signal.

  66. Argent Stonecutter

    Tarot’s neck-ruff is excessively cute in this strip.

  67. Vv45689

    Wow it’s like a girls day out . . .

  68. Kytan

    btw the whole theme park thing is a rouse so pete can takeover peanut as his avatar!!! XD

      We must Protect peanut at all costs!

      • Kytan

        nah he’ll be fine!

        • Rendak

          Ya sure? Not even defensive pre-cautions?

          • Kytan

            grape….

          • Rendak

            Ah, correct….She’ll need a bigger broom though

    • Hypergenesis

      I’m quite sure the Spirit Dragon wouldn’t allow that to happen

      • Rendak

        Ah right…Her as well

        • Kytan

          LOL!!!! dragon’s in love with a low order being!!!!!

  69. James

    I just noticed that Sabrina and Tarot have the same eye color, except when Tarot goes psychic.

  70. CalaverX11

    I also would have accepted “…in my pants,” “…in your pants,” “…underwater” or “…naked.”

    • CalaverX11

      Oh, duh. Wondered why my avatar didn’t work.

  71. Hoheh

    Ah, Sabrina. So she may have or be working on seeing into the future? Interesting.

  72. Kytan

    while all this is going on fox and king are working to steal the source of tarots true power!!!
    (ominous close up)
    Her leather collar!!!

    • Rendak

      What is that on her collar anyway?

    • Hypergenesis

      With that golden eye (not the game, that’s goldeneye) i’m sure that collar’s made of jade or emerald ^^

      • Rendak

        Of course not Goldeneye 64 :P
        I think it’s gold actually

        • Kytan

          the eye of rae i assume but her true power just comes from the leather collar….

  73. the Art Wolf

    Did anyone get the “in bed” joke? My friends would always add “in bed” after I finished reading my fortune cookies… >_>

  74. Jirodyne

    Sabrina speaks! All Hail Her Words of Wisdom! *Worships*

  75. falcon01

    I think my brain ran away and hid…laughing all the way :P
    Nice to see Sabrina actually speaking with Tarot, it gives us a better idea of their relationship

  76. e

    tarot don’t tell people death is toying with them in they near future.

  77. e

    i have a very stronge dislike for people who spoil things for everyone else.

  78. anthroguy101

    Hooray, Sabrina is back! Just wish it meant something.

    The strip with Sabrina and the drowning? Maybe they’ll skip in time, who knows. XD

  86. Rendak

    Weird, there are 2 comments under Argents down there, last time they couldn’t go there -_-

  87. Argent Stonecutter

    I think Rick did a mass-delete and broke the comments again.

  88. Hypergenesis

    Aye, a reason for that is currently speaking. ( o .o)

  89. Hypergenesis

    Above was supposed to be a reply to Argent’s post. =P
