            Stop typing like that. It’s a pain to try and decipher what you’re saying, and it doesn’t make you creative, unique or interesting in any way.

            I can’t seem to find the comment anywhere anymore. Maybe they were erased, maybe?

          • Foxstar

            Settle down or else.

          • Frank

            Or your posting-in-the-comments-section privileges could be suspended.
            No, I’m not kidding. I’ve moderated elsewhere and know an argument that can lead to a suspension when I see it.

          • Foxstar

            Or else you can go type funny elsewhere.

        • notthatlol

          Please excuse me while I go bleed in a corner for 6 hrs.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You need an avatar!

      • Rocket Knight boy

        ha i see what you did there! very clever

        • WingedWolfGirl

          Wow. Agent’s avatar.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            heh heh argent thaaattsss…. weird :3

          • Frank

            Animals look wierd when they’re looking straight at the camera; there’s just no way around it

    • Skykitsune

      Despite the fact she’s screaming, in the last panel she looks really cute!

  2. sonic id furreh!!!

    bath time!

    • Alex M.

      Trachery bath time¡

  3. Pseudo Faux

    I’m surprised Peanut is taking this quite well. A ******** nude and wet Grape.

    • Alex M.

      zomg!

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        wo ur raight but then again HE got paid ah dollah fer it :P

        • notthatlol

          Uh…
          I still think it’s kinda awkward…
          Mainly due to the face Grape is making in panel 4, haven’t we seen King making that face before?

          • notthatlol

            Also, I’d have needed 10$ to do that.

          • Pseudo Faux

            Grape: KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING!!!

        • Hypergenesis

          Get paid to watch nudity?

          (SADLY) A lot of people are willing to kill for a job like that.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            So long as it doesn’t involve filling in reports using SAP.

          • Score

            “Sadly”? Wouldn’t YOU kill for a job where you sat down doing next to nothing all day?

          • Hypergenesis

            I do have work like that already you know. . .

            And no, I would not like a job where I sat down doing next to nothing all day.

          • Tara

            What exactly do you do, Hypergenesis? If you don’t mind me asking.

    • Tendo

      I believe it was Grape that said “we are naked all the time”

      http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/08/06/i-planned-this-joke-for-an-awful-long-time/

    • Sleet

      How is that a downside for Peanut? ;3

    • Hypergenesis

      “I’m nude, you’re nude so nothing wrong with it.”

      Besides, they’re at home anyways, children can always run nude at home.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Language!

      • Frank

        English!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I think it’s actually French, originally, but whatever… I’m surprised a mod hasn’t nixed it.

          • Frank

            Looked it up: Nude comes from the Latin nudus (bare) and was originally a legal term for an unsupported testimony. In 1611 it started being used to refer to paintings that were… shall we say, similar in style to The Birth of Venus?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Wrong word.

          • dalonewolf25

            ahh! My eyes! It reminds me of my world history class.

          • Frank

            Okay then, Buggered: from the Medieval Latin Bulgarus, meaning heretic, especially one from Bulgaria.
            No, I am not making this up!

    • Rick Griffin

      That IS a swear word in Britain so don’t use it as we have British people watching

        Doesn’t happen often – savor the moment

      • Tara

        Well, I’m sure that it was the mom who came up with the idea in the first place. It makes more sense for her to have bribed Peanut by telling him what to do. ;)

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        @Val
        were.. did you get that pic A WANT IT!!! XD

      You’re winner!

  10. Alex M.

    I liked the flower at the first panel

    • Alex M.

      I noticed the missing one-off tag

      • Alex M.

        Hehe,now there is a one-off tag.

        • Hypergenesis

          Aw, how could that be?

          A ONE off changing into a. . one-off by becoming NONE off???

          • Alex M.

            Paradox time-space-forget it

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oh no, not ANOTHER chronosynclastic infundibulum.

          • Alex M.

            Come on, that flower it’s there to make even happier the first panel :D .

  11. dalonewolf25

    That’s one more dollar going into the Federal Reserve Bank of Peanut. Now he can buy more paper for his comics!

  12. GameCobra

    Treachery indeed.

    But hey, Grape should know that the mom and dad have just as much power over Peanut than she does =3

    • dalonewolf25

      Watch Grape do the same @ Peanut in another way.

      • Hypergenesis

        Which wouldn’t be SOMETHING since we saw what happened at “The Vet” arc. Hoping for something might not even be wise.

  13. dalonewolf25

    Alt-text: “I need to practice humans more…but not tonight”

  14. Enty

    Hrm, no one off tag? Perhaps a bathtime arc?

    • Alex M.

      It look’s that Peanut already take a bath, or he’s next to bath

      • dalonewolf25

        *took

        • Alex M.

          Yeah sorry, im still learnig english
          Problemas con la gramatica ;)

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            you speak spanish? like as a first language?

          • dalonewolf25

            Esta bien, no te preocupes. Nosotros hacemos errores todos los tiempos.

          • Alex M.

            Si, soy de México y aun tengo unos pequeños problemas con la gramatica del tiempo pasado. ;)

          • Alex M.

            @dalonewolf: Nosotros cometemos errores de vez en cuando.Maybe?

          • dalonewolf25

            ah, ok, pues yo nací aqui, pero como hablamos español en la casa, se hablar y escribir en los dos lenguajes. Estoy aprendiendo el francés también.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            if onleh ai cood speak enough to understand dis

          • dalonewolf25

            Ok, tu me ganas en la gramatica en español.

          • dalonewolf25

            We could translate it all, if you want us to.

          • Alex M.

            By here, you are meaning the U.S. or another english spoke country?

          • Alex M.

            Je suis Alex. Je suis Français, et cela est la seule langue que je parle.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            no u guys dun have 2 translate nuthin it’s ok ^.^^

          • dalonewolf25

            Tu n’est pas Français parce que tu a dit que tu es mexique. Et comme est que le Français est le seule langue que tu parle si tu sais espagnol et anglais?

          • dalonewolf25

            Yes. U.S. Sorry Rick for the big long stray of comment replies!

          • Alex M.

            Hehe, j’ai découvert, vraiment utiliser le traducteur de google
            Et si je suis en provenance du Mexique, pour les langues, mieux c’est.
            spammeur bueno.Pero True n’est pas écrit que les gens comprennent.

            Sapristy Nockos!

          • dalonewolf25

            Translators are bad for me. I don’t like to use them because then you’re really not learning the language. Rather, you’re having the language deciphered already for you.

          • Alex M.

            Thanks Frank i will strive more in the learning of the English.
            By the way great use of the lexicon.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          *taken

          • dalonewolf25

            Nope, don’t see it fitting into daily speech.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I was thinking “Peanut took a bath” vs “Peanut has already taken a bath”. But I guess “Peanut already took a bath” works.

          • dalonewolf25

            sure, that makes sense

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It jest sounds a mite rural, son. Not that I reckon there’s owt wrong with rural, mind. I can talk rural fine as the next ferret, when I got a hankering to.

          • dalonewolf25

            It’s funny how Florida has no southern accent. Rather, we have “no accent.”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Bloody yanks. The “south” starts at the equator.

    • dalonewolf25

      No, that’d be too innapropriate! Cute, but innapropriate!

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      heh heh dat wood be fun…………. HEY RICK IZ DAT WUT UR DOIN!?!

      • dalonewolf25

        Why is it that when I use html, I’m being modded?

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          wut?

          • dalonewolf25

            I’m awaiting moderation for two comments I posted…:(

            how do u no wen that happens cuz it nevah happens to meh :?

          • dalonewolf25

            It says Your comment is awaiting moderation. under the username.

          • Hypergenesis

            1. Any posts with more than one link will be moderated.
            2. Titles were once moderated so it might be playing a role.
            3. It could contain one ore more words in the filter.

            Probably one of those but it could be something else.

          • dalonewolf25

            Or mebbe i’m using too much html in ma comments also…

          • Nohbody

            Also, if you do the links as embedded (with the whole “a href” tag thing), your post will get delayed for moderation.

          • dalonewolf25

            Well, also when i use the alt tag, i get modded E|:(

  15. SamBlob

    Is there a way to pay out a dollar by using thirty pieces of silver?

    • Hypergenesis

      Yes, if the silver pieces are worth 1/30th of a dollar or if it amounts to a dollar.

      There are also other ways. . .

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If you count nickel as silver you can get twenty.

  16. Pokeblue

    Lol, that pretty well played out. I wonder if Grape’s gonna hold a grudge for this. Or just put it behind her like the vet visit.

  17. sonic id furreh!!!

    does any1 else laike… luv wen gwape sticks out her tung laike dat ;) ?

  18. ReCreate

    lol.. grape looks… feminine.. in panel 3. O.o

    But lol at the last panel. :P It make me chuckle.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      sidle sidle…. :P

  19. JB

    Clever, sneaky, and what a way to end a nice game of ‘hide & seek’.
    You better hide for real this time Peanut. Grape is gonna get ya.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      laike ah shadow in de night she will come without warnin 8-)

  20. xhunterko

    Heh heh heh heh.

    Ohh, so worth that dollar. Not to mention the beating he’s going to get afterward. Or the trickery.

    • Hypergenesis

      I don’t think there will be a beating, I think it would be worse for Grape if she does, a slap or two maybe and some shunning would be more plausible.

      • dalonewolf25

        Oh, don’t worry. I’ll make it quick n’ painless.

      • pet_panda

        he’s gonna lose his snuggle privileges

        • dalonewolf25

          Worse, my friend. He’s gonna lose his Shnuggle Privilages!
          Shnuggle=Snuggle+Cuddle+Hug

          • Hypergenesis

            Shnuggless. .

            Snuggle + Cuddle + Cuddle + Kiss

          • dalonewolf25

            Your word makes it negative. “Shnuggliss” would be better

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Every time Hypergenesis uses that avatar I think it’s me.

          • dalonewolf25

            i think it’s on purpose.

  21. Snowmon

    But how was going in there so predictable…

    Oh, I get it. It’s the last place that she’d naturally ever look, so then it’d be naturally the first place that she would look… unnaturally…

  22. txteclipse

    That pixel or so of an eyelash really makes Grape look more feminine in panel 3. It’s a miracle what those things can do.

  23. dalonewolf25

    Peanut’s Mind: …and I wanted to see you take a bath just for the fun of it.

  24. Hypergenesis

    So between this comic and “Theme Park World” arc, they got their hairs cut?
    (Did I play a role in this?)

    [Anyways, many thanks Rick for granting my wish]

    • Argent Stonecutter

      After Theme Park World, “the bathtub” sounds like a ride to me.

      • Tha Housedog

        Nah, from that arc, every name that involved objects was a food place.

      • WingedWolfGirl

        Theme Park World will do that to ya.

  25. Hypergenesis

    Hey Sidle Sidle? The cat got into the tuble?

    Er. . .

    Seeing as Peanut has a towel around his neck, is he waiting for his turn?

  26. Valerio

    this is the day of cuteness!:D

    • dalonewolf25

      Oh no! We’re gonna lose him again! E|:O

      • Alex M.

        How many lives has Valerio?

        • Valerio

          I got a special discount immortailty package for moments like these.
          And if you check the forum at the fan art thread, you’ll see that it works! I’m still alive after a certain contribution… :D

          • dalonewolf25

            well, just don’t touch the anti-immortality package button. Yes, that big red button. Yes, the shiny one. Don’t press it. Yes, that one, the one you have your finger on. Yes, the one you’re about to press. Don’t press it. Yes, the one with the fallout warning sign. Don’t!

          • Hypergenesis

            LP would be more accurate as he’s on his last LIFE.
            You could have various “health” in one life.

            By the way, here’s some depressa- - Life Potions for you.

            give him some orange soda he’ll be fine

          • dalonewolf25

            You fools! You’re pressing on his condition! Don’t believe what he says. He’s delirious! His mind wants him to… oh, wait a second…he lost a life.

            So, are green mushrooms really 1-UPs?

          • dalonewolf25

            No, they’re rotten angel mushrooms, making them deathshrooms, or in other words, -1-up, 1-down, &c.

      That’s the power of half a week’s pure spending power.

      • NexusWulf

        Heck yea !

  28. Teh Brawler

    THAT PEANUT IS A SPY

    • NexusWulf

      That Grape is a Peanut ! That Peanut is a Mom ! That Mom is a Grape !

      • Rocket Knight boy

        theres a glitch in the matrix…

  29. Hypergenesis

    A final work before I go. . .

    How could the bath water froth up that much with a sponge(well towel) bath?

    And once again, the momentary thrill of reading a comic (at work) has passed. . .

  30. pet_panda

    how did she keep track of time in her hiding place

    • Hypergenesis

      Peek out the closet slit and you’ll see the wall clock.

      • Hypergenesis

        Speaking of which I think I’ll do just that. . .

        Amazing what boredom does to people and even more amazing are those that have the patience to wait it off. . .

        Oh, and that was cabinet, not closet. (My bad)

  31. Valerio

    tut tut tut tut, no snuggles for you for a week, Peanut, you bad dog you!

  32. 2MK

    Hey! dogs don’t use towels!

    • Hypergenesis

      They do. .

      I should know, mine does.

    • Valerio

      During rainy days, when I’m back home, I must only say ‘towel’ and may boy will stand by me ready for a good rub! :)

      • NexusWulf

        my dog Laik Towels well atleast hes kinda wet :P

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          u fergot de “e” in “laike” :P

  33. Firewolf

    I love every single one of Grape’s facial expressions in this strip! =D Even in the 2nd panel
    ;-P

    • dalonewolf25

      …but there is no facial expression…

      • Gaboris

        I bet that’s the reason why he said “even” and put a “;-P” there. :3

        • Firewolf

          Bingo. ;-P =D

  34. Gaboris

    Oh yeah the good old “play hide ‘n seek to make her get into the bathroom” trick. XD What I don’ get is even if they got her into the bathroom she wouldn’t be willing to take a bath and she’d still be forced into the tub… so why bother when I human who’s double her size could just pic her up with one hand? That’s the question answer it!!! :D

    • Hypergenesis

      Try chasing your pet(s) around the house. If they’re at least bunny size chances would be that 85% of the time, you will be tired and will need a bath yourself.

      Also, they struggle they give when you give a pet that doesn’t like baths is quite astounding.

      So why not just pay ONE dollar to quickly get them into the bathroom already instead of paying for the medical, furnishing, and cleaning bills?

      To answer your question, which I noticed I didn’t. Less scratches if she’s in the bathroom already.

  35. 8feet

    TREACHERY for a dollar!!! such blasphemy!

    • Valerio

      Play hide and seek with Grape: for free
      Trick Grape into a bath: one dollar
      See it worked: Priceless! :D

      • NexusWulf

        that … was … just … AN AMAZING IDEA BROUGHT YOU BY Valerio ;D

  39. Inu225

    Have you ever played a Hide and Seek game where the person who was suppose to seek you forgot or gave up and just left you hiding there forever?
    I hate my brother… -_-

    • Hypergenesis

      Well if it would make you feel any better, I was once forgotten and left alone in a beach cottage I was hiding in during a game of Hide and Seek. I think I was hiding some three hours that time thinking, “Hahaha! They’ll never find me in here.” Then I got sick of hiding and saw a beautiful sunset and an empty beach.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Awwww.

      • Inu225

        Wow…
        My bad Hide and Seek experience is chump change compared to yours.
        Honestly I wouldn’t know what to do in a situation like that especially when your just kid. I’d probably cry like a little girl…
        I hope that didn’t scar you for life.

        • Hypergenesis

          Hm. . . Nope.

          I think I panicked for a while, then realized I had a cellphone and called. Once home I was like “Let’s do that again. . !”

          Fine, followed by “. . , but this time I’ll seek.”

    • Frank

      I’ve been in the opposite situation: I hid in a closet. After half an hour, I thought “oh, well, I guess they forgot.” When I came out, it turns out they were just waiting for me to come out of my hiding place!

      • Inu225

        What. o_0
        Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of “Hide and Seek” when the person isn’t even trying to seek you?

  40. Lake

    Hey all, I’m Lake and Hypergenisis, why does your avatar change? *awesome face*

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That’s my fault, I think.

      • Hypergenesis

        Indeed it is, he got the multiple body virus in me.

        Not to worry though, it’s better this way.

        Additionally, I’m not the only one who caught it.

        • dalonewolf25

          Yeah…i’ve only been here for 2 months and already I gots it.

  41. Lake

    Well, basically everyone. Oh wait, maybe it is just an error… Is it meant to stay with that avatar without changing… Hmm, I’ll check.( far all you know those are 3 capital I’s )

  42. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Never saw that coming~

  43. T-Squared

    I love Grape’s face in the third panel! XD Also… why is Peanut in the bathroom with Grape? *nudge nudge* ;P

    • Hypergenesis

      Because they’re siblings?
      Because they’re young enough for it to be innocent?
      Because the more they appear the more complete the comic becomes?
      Because you just want to ask “why is Peanut in the bathroom with Grape?”?

      Well probably. . .
      Because they’re siblings. . ?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      So he can gloat.

    • NickCrotser

      *wink wink*

      • NickCrotser

        Darn, I just realized I shoudve put “Say no more, Say no more” insted of “Wink Wink”

  44. T-Squared

    Also, is it just me, or is Grape beginning to look more and more feminine? XD

  45. Vv45689

    Rick I’m having trouble with humans too it sucks.

  46. Rocket Knight boy

    relax grape, besides it just means peanut will get a ‘CLEAN’ punch when your done eh? eh?

    • Tha Housedog

      Yeah, she’s gonna “clean” his clock.

  47. WingedWolfGirl

    Ah-ha, XD
    Kitty gets bathtime noaw. :3

  48. Mukavich

    You have provoked the wrath of the cat, but it’s alright… You have to sleep sometime.

  49. The J.A.M.

    I’m surprised that no one has mentioned this, but wouldn’t Hide N’ Seek be pointless to play with furries? Given their superior sense of smell, they would be able to find each other in less than a minute.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      maybe, maybe…never the less it just means grape would enter her BATH TRAP quicker! MUHAHAHA!!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Just rub up against a bunch of decoy hiding places on the way. Double back through the creek, jump out at that landslide, then dive over the cliff into the river and clamber out on the handy overhanging branch where use saw the skunk, duck under the porch and take a dust bath, climb up to the second floor balcony, shake off, then duck around to the bedroom window and dab yourself with toilet water before slipping into the closet.

    • Tha Housedog

      Maybe they have an agreement to not use their noses

    • Hypergenesis

      That is quite interesting. . Until I remembered an article (Uh yeah, see I forgot where I read it so no link. Try googling it though.) which found out that bipeds have way less smelling abilities than quadrupeds. Something about evolution giving bipeds better eyesight to maximize the higher viewing point compared to the smelling which tracks scents close to the ground.

      Also, you should take note that a lot of pets don’t know how to follow a scent.
      Also again, They’ve been living in that house for seven or so years, I think (less for grape more for Peanut, I think again).
      Additionally, it’s also possible for humans to play Hide and Sniff, especially during the later games where everyone’s already sweaty and smelly (Before anyone asks, yes, I was able to find a few kids using scent when I was still playing hide and seek). So I don’t think ruling out smelling would be fair. [On an unrelated note, I was also able to read of a blind schoolkid who was able to find hiding spots when they were playing.]

  50. Frank

    Grape’s looking more like a girl today

    • NickCrotser

      And we are all grateful for it.

    • Frank

      It’s been a while since what? Since they had a bath?

  52. Dr. Prower

    Sneaky lil Peanut…

  53. Argent Stonecutter

    PS: Grape is BIFF!

  54. Fox Eternal

    You got bath’d

  56. Kamron

    New favorite strip? Yes please!

  57. Tha Housedog

    I love this comic! This and Faux Pas are the only G-rated comics I know of that are any good.

    • Tha Housedog

      That are furry, that is.

  58. Fuzzypaws

    I love Grape’s expressions in this one. *giggles* I do expect some kind of revenge later!

  59. RennisTora

    Awesome and adorable RG

  60. FarmMan1812

    WOW!
    That was so mean.
    Haha, But very clever.
    I’m still laughing at that.
    :)

  61. FerreTrip

    Well-done, Peanut!! ^_^

    Poor Grape. X3;

  62. PuDdY15

    u’know true treachery is like how a griffen pretends to be nice ta other animals but eventually leads em ta hs nest. aim not relatin anybodeh or nothin…. or am ai? *looks weirdly at dem* ^_^

    • Hypergenesis

      But you would have meant Pete right?

      Pretends to be nice (in dream)
      Makes woodland creatures take Zach (leads other to its nest)
      Whoops! Zach pressed the button (I. . AM. . FREE! ! ! but avatarless. . )

    • NickCrotser

      VIRGIL ! ! !

  63. Keldor

    Heh, I was expecting grape to sneak off to take a nap – now nicely uninterrupted of course! XD

  64. yarrofox

    hehee… my cat yells HEEEELLPPP !!! when we give her a bath.

    • Frank

      LOL. Wait, yo actually speak cat? Are there any other interesting words to know? (not counting “I’m hungry”)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Feline, or Ailurin as it’ is known to initiates, has over three hundred words for “I’m Hungry”.

  65. hennessyvenom

    Upon reading comments, I came to the conclusion that most of you are either middle schoolers or high schoolers (I would check this box). Do you know how I decided this? The spelling and grammar. Yes, I do actually care about spelling and try to be as accurate as possible. Not saying you’re dumb, just try to use good English. [sorry for the rant]
    Also, I see a lot of furs in here. Just saying.

    • dalonewolf25

      I understand where you’re coming from. Think of all of us as people who know how to write properly, but decide not to. Or, you could think of us as people who have not, but really should, reached that level in grammar. Whichever you pick, it does not matter. However, we comment based upon what we read or what arises from what others have written, mainly arising from the comic.

      • Alex M.

        Actually,i have been thinking about that.Becuase the comment’s aren’t simple words or phrases,they are deep conclusions and big discussions that most the time they go of the point of the comic.(Well it’s hard to explain)
        And aboout the school level im actualy in the Bachillerato, i think it’s High School in the U.S.

        • dalonewolf25

          It is. However, I’m not sure what you would call me if I was enrolled in high school, but I’m really taking all my classes in college.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I wish.

      So, ranting about spelling and grammar. Either a cranky old codger or a smug freshman.

      • Tha Housedog

        He said that he’s in high school.

      • hennessyvenom

        Actually I am a senior this year. I just thought I’d throw the concept of proper English out to everyone and see if it catches on.

  66. enty

    nyeh, shoot, One off tag is there

  67. ProgOtter

    Stop typing like that. You don’t sound cute, you just sound like an idiot.

    On another note, has NOBODY else noticed Grape’s nose in the last panel?

    • Frank

      Who were you replying to?

      And what’s wrong with her nose? Isn’t that how it always has been?

      • dalonewolf25

        If you look closely in the last panel, you’ll see that there is supposed to be a white shaded area to separate her nose from the top part of the muzzle and her actual fur. That space is supposed to make the nose look like an inflated arrowhead, but is not very influential as getting the point of the comic through and the angle at which Grape was drawn made it seem even more valid.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          It’s there, it’s just very subtle at that angle.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai think he wuz talkin to meh…. not sure tho :?

    • iHavezMyBirdo

      Er, her nose is a triangle?

  68. koren

    Funny

  69. Shady Kitsune

    Again with the nakedeness of NO COLLARS! Cover your eyes!

    • Valerio

      there’s no shame in cuteness :D

      • Shady Kitsune

        But won’t somene PLEASE think of the CHILDREN!

        (If someone hasn’t realized yet, yes, I’m totally joking.)

  70. Lax

    Ah, sometimes the best of friends can be quite treacherous, but mostly for your own good :)

  71. falcon01

    looks like peanut is next…his collar is off too

    • Valerio

      yup, but he’s gonna enjoy it… And I’ll bet he’d love to take it with Grape ;)

  72. e

    grape: this is madness!
    peanut: madness? this is the bathroom!

  73. Gamerkitty

    OUTRAGE!!! how dare he sink to such a low and vile trickery, and for a dollar no less! I does not approve of peanuts actions, no no no.

    • Nia

      Yeah! He could have tleast for 20 bucks instead

  74. Valerio

    test

    • Valerio

      YAYZ!

    • thegamist

      well well
      nice one

  75. thegamist

    Anyone want to see my dog getting a bath?
    warning: you might need eyebleech

  76. Vv45689

    Grape is too cute.

    • Tha Housedog

      Yes she is

  77. Vv45689

    Wha?

  78. Lance

    adorable. I love it when peanut and grape do stuff together. <3

    • Frank

      Singlehandedly arranging the other’s bath without their knowledge or consent

      counts as “doing stuff together”?

  79. DoctorEevee

    Peanut’s pretty smart o.o unexpected treachery!

  80. Nohbdy

    Wait, don’t cats bath themselves? I thought that was one of their selling points.

    • Valerio

      perhaps it’s considered ‘bad etiquette’ in a domestic context.

      • Valerio

        not to mention that having your pet fluffy and smelling like shampoo is awesome!

        • Nohbdy

          No argument, there. haha

  81. The Wolf Next Door

    Treachery is nice! Grape it’s time for a bath!!

  82. o.o

    Peanut and grape in a bathroom. *werid tots*

  83. sneeman

    meh, just spray a lil fabreeze on your cat and nobody could tell the difference. :3
