    haha already asleep. XD

    • dalonewolf25

      Curse you, sleep!!!!!!!

      • xhunterko

        Ah ha! No worm rider but this will do! Avast ye scurvy worm! Feel the power of my fire!

        *FWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH*

        (couldn’t help it cough)
        (ref: http://www.lfgcomic.com/page/399)

        • xhunterko

          Gosh darn it you changed it at the last minute!

          • dalonewolf25

            ãnyways, linkrot E|:P

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            max got SHUT DAOWN XD!!!!

      • Frank

        (goes to sleep) (gets cursed)

        • xhunterko

          Ghastly’s special attack sharply increases!
          (actually, I’m never really sure what it does to ghost types)

          • dalonewolf25

            Well, all I know that if your Pokémon is put to sleep by a haunter, ghastly, gengar, etc., it’s game over already, my friend. Nightmare attacks will ultimately kill you…

          • Gary

            Dream Eater

          • Alex M.

            Quick! Use a remedy.

          • dalonewolf25

            Remedy won’t work if he’s already vulnerable to more sleep!

          • Expletive Deleted

            When the move curse is used by a ghost type, it causes the user (a ghost type) to cut their current hitpoints in half, the oppenent will then lose 1/4 of their total hitpoints each turn until they faint and/or are swiched out.

            But the move description dosen’t tell you this (even though 95% of the people that use the move only teach it to ghost types to begin with) so ya gotta kinda figure it out through observation.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I was asleep. But no, someone had to wake me up. To ask me where the pepto was. Right in front of them it was. So here I am, in the early morning Housepets brawl. Grump.

      • dalonewolf25

        Cool! One grumpy ferret!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          One sleepy ferret.

          • xhunterko

            Back! Back you foul being!

            *fwooosh!*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m not a fowl! Fowls is food!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            *ga- well yah they kaindof r ^-^

          • Alex M.

            Falafelraptor!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Now I want a falafel. I haven’t had one in years, I don’t think. Some SOBs burned down the local middle-eastern restaurant I used to go to.

      • Alex M.

        Is dawning where you live?

        • dalonewolf25

          Note: “Early” morning usually refers to 1am-6am

        • Argent Stonecutter

          No sir, it’s oh dark hundred.

        • Alex M.

          Thanks for the note.
          Oh well just wondering.
          I’m not a sir x3
          Just 1 year and 2 months to coming of age.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            so ur ah girl :?

          • Alex M.

            No x3
            Im almost 17, so im not a sir.
            Not yet…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            So I should call you “young master”, like Jeeves? :D

          • Alex M.

            No, only Alex or Mikel :)

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            can ai call u malex :D

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Very well, sir.

          • Frank

            I don’t think age is actually a restriction for knighthood; that would’ve made there be practically no knights when the life expectancy was about 20

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That was skewed by infant mortality. Once you got past that your life expectancy was much higher.

        • Alex M.

          No words can describe how i feel
          Malex ;)
          Ohh i gona use it a lot :D
          Now i have 8 names!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            YYAAAAAAYYYY AI GET TO CALL U MALEX XD!!!!!!!!!!

          • Frank

            Isn’t that an antiacid?

    • Spens

      Jeez, at least give him the common courtesy to tell him you have a headache XP

      Ohi Lance, fancy meeting you here.

    • dalonewolf25

      I just noticed after increasing the brightness of my computer that there is a hallway in panel 1. Lol.

    • Skykitsune

      Haha! Owned by sleep.

  2. Dissension

    Planning Fail. x3

    • dalonewolf25

      I knew I should’ve brought ma DS! *grumble grumble*

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        heh alt txt :P

  3. dalonewolf25

    Wait, he ran him over?

  4. Pseudo Faux

    DO. NOT. WAKE. GRAPE.

  5. Alex M.

    Awww cute he couldn’t get over all the night.

    • xhunterko

      Still, the woodland critters have yet to pull their stunt. If they do. And we have yet to see if Sabrina actually conjured up anything. You know, just to show Max up.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Indeed, and Max is alone now.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          but grape wood just use her “broom to the face” powers on de woodland critters ;)

      • Alex M.

        Allegedly the game between Max and Marvin only involved a partner and Marvin partner is Zachary, who is passed out.
        But now i wonder if Sabrina is also playing and Tarot it’s her partner.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Sabrina is a recruit.

          • Alex M.

            Recruit of who?
            Max?
            I think that the recruits of Max are the Bigglesworths.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Sabrina was recruited by Grape.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            yes cuz the recruit cood recruit other recruits so the other recruits cood help the original recruit and the person that recruited the original recruit :D

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Actually, Sabrina is a substitute for a recruit.

          • Alex M.

            So Tarot is a partner of Sabrina?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Sabrina is a substitute for Tarot, who isn’t in the game any more.

  6. xhunterko

    Not quite.

    • xhunterko

      And at least he cares enough about zach to see about getting him feeling better. So he cares somewhat there.

  7. Eli

    There better not be kittens after this arc!

    • xhunterko

      Not with them asleep.

    • Ryufire

      Eh I think not! ^^

    • Alex M.

      What will think Peanut!!!

      • xhunterko

        *what will peanut think!

    • Frank

      You mean figuratively, right?

    • BeatReaktor

      Fist-Bump

    • Chip Uni

      Grape obviously does NOT feel like “practising making kittens”. If you wake her, the only thing that will be bared are claws and teeth…

    • 666overnator666

      there would better be atmospheric drag, though

      • captainpea

        adladladladl

    • pet_panda

      naw, maxie only wanted to play checkers with nis new glow in the dark checker set.

  8. dalonewolf25

    Alt-text: Should have borrowed a DS or something…

  9. Lance

    max lovers, panel two looks like a great new avatar. =3

    • Frank

      Shh! Don’t give them ideas ;)

    • Lance

      *Max. I hate leaving my typos alone. >_<

      • dalonewolf25

        See what happens after a good ol’ planned action?

    • xhunterko

      I was thinking more like panel four.

    • Ryufire

      The clock is ticking ^^

      • dalonewolf25

        It happened.

        • Alex M.

          You saved the version without bite mark.

        • ZincChloride

          Awesome! You cought it before Rick could correct it! Look at your gravatar… Max’s right ear! It doesn’t have the bite. LOL

        • Ryufire

          Epic win Sir!

          • Alex M.

            Epic Timing :)

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            yah cuz rick iz laike lightnin fast XD

          • Manix

            What i telled you about that language around here?!? *puts up EPIC JAR* now pay up..

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            bu- but ai neveh had 2 paw befor *uses puppy-dog eyes*

  10. IceKitsune

    lol at sleeping Grape also I’m going to predict that Max is going to get scared by Sabrina and Tarot (or maybe just Sabrina) after this

    • Frank

      It would be funny if he decides it’s okay to jump ship just because he thought Marvin had already left

  11. dalonewolf25

    Too late, my friend…

  12. Frank

    Awesome lighting, keep it up, but where’s Marvin’s tail?

    • dalonewolf25

      It’s there, just like in the Mr.Bigglesworth dressup strip

  13. ZincChloride

    I actually think Max looks better without the bite mark in his right ear. *Am I the only one that cought that?* If you just left it out from here on I don’t think it would be any biggie. :P

  14. ZincChloride

    HA! I saw that Rick! Youi corrected it!

    • Frank

      Oh, sorry. You meant “caught”, not “thought”. I guess you can ignore my previous comment.

  15. Inu225

    Not surprised. Grape LOVES her sleep.
    Until Peanut comes in…

    • Frank

      “I love you, Maxie. But get between me and my naptime and I’ll rip you to shreds, got it?”

  16. victorzorro

    hahaha

  17. Argent Stonecutter

    Marvin could win the meta-game, like when Granny Weatherwax won the staring contest by losing it.

    • Frank

      But the meta-game here is controlled by the Great Kitsune!

  18. Alex M.

    Max on the last panel it’s like my infancy on christmas night waiting for Santa :D

    • dalonewolf25

      I remember when I tried staying up until 12 to see if Santa Claus would pop in at any moment. I even slept next to the Christmas tree. Sadly, I had forgotten about the hallway in which my presents were placed the next day…

      • Alex M.

        I remember getting asleep on the couch and being carried to bed without noticing it and wake up in the morning blaming me to fall asleep.

  19. Argent Stonecutter

    I’m surprised there aren’t smelling salts in Zach’s ghost hunter kit.

    • BeatReaktor

      Just incense I guess…

  20. lightwolf21

    Grape stays up during the day hanging out with Peanut (or he keeps waking her up)…so her normal sleep cycle is all messed up and she sleeps at night…what a strange time for a cat to be sleeping. lol.

  21. Argent Stonecutter

    Or they could send a Bigglesworth or a forest critter for it.

    Or use a forest critter. Got a skunk handy?

  22. BeatReaktor

    Lol Max’s face in panel 2 reminds me of myself. :D

    • dalonewolf25

      I knew you would say that… E|;D

      • BeatReaktor

        You must be psychic! O_o

        • Frank

          Uh, no, Sabrina is the psychic

  23. GameCobra

    Better luck next time, Max ;)

    Maybe some other holiday =P

  24. FerreTrip

    Sheesh–it’s only 1:22 AM here and ALREADY there are new avatars? That’s crazy @_@;

    Nice one, Grape X3

  25. Z24

    Max should know from Peanut…

  26. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Beware! Glamis hath murder’d sleep! Cawdor shall sleep no more!

    • BeatReaktor

      Macbeth FTW

  27. Nia

    I think if this place is haunted, the ghosts should be scared more of Grape. Seriously, she’s more scarier than any ghost or demon, when she’s cranky.

  28. Final Silence

    Step Right Up! Make Your Bets on The 3rd Party Scares! Please Note You Can Only Make Bets In COOKIES! No Bonus Points, Friends Points, Cash or Anything Else Just Cookies! The Winner at The End of The Arc Gets ALL of THE COOKIES!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      MAI COOKIES?

      • FlareKitsune

        Sorry, but Adam Malkovich didn’t authorize you having cookies.

        You have to go through the whole Bottle Ship, then fight a Queen Metroid before you get your cookies.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Granary fragmentation morterboard?

        • xhunterko

          Ack not again! I do like google, but some things are too random to search for. A little help here?

          • BeatReaktor

            try Bing lol :D

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            NO! NEVER TRY BING!

            I tend to get WORSE results when I try Bing.

    • Leinad

      i’ll put two cookies on Grape sleeping the whole night, something super-scary happening, and somebody (probably Peanut) will come and ‘rescue’ her.

      • Frank

        With Tarot making him fly like Spot (superdog)!

    • dalonewolf25

      I place 1M cookies on the Val Kilmer Batman theory which states that a third party disobeys all rules of cartoon physics…
      I place another 1M cookie in the fact that the Good Ol’ Dogs will appear in this arc.

      • xhunterko

        Hate to bust your buble, but I already betted on bino the first few strips or so, I believe. So, yeah, cookies on bino.

        • Final Silence

          how many cookies will that be?

          • xhunterko

            2 dozen or so should be enough

    • Pokeblue

      I put 7 cookeies that some of the dogs will show up as a third party and scare the others out. And I’ll add three more that at least one of ‘em is Peanut or Tarot.

    • Final Silence

      And Now The Current Prize Cookies is 2,000,012 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!

    • WingedWolfGirl

      *CHOMP
      I’ll put …half a cookie on the theory that real ghosts’ll show up, and everybody but Marvin runs screaming into the night; cuz he thinks its fake.

    • Alex M.

      1K for Peanut appearing and scaring all the cats with Tarot help ;)

    • Final Silence

      And Now The Current Prize Cookies is 2,001,012.5 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!

    • dalonewolf25

      I place ∞ cookies that it will end in a funny, cute, or awkward way!

    • Final Silence

      And Now The Current Prize Cookies is ∞2,001,012.5 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!

    • Final Silence

      And Now The Current Prize Cookies is ∞2,001,036.5 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!

  29. Falcon01

    so…Grape is asleep, Zach is unconcious, theres a whole bunch of Bigglesworths and assorted Forest Critters in the building…and Max and Marvin are out to outscare each other…..RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!

    • Final Silence

      I agree, we should run, but I don’t think it’s one of the signs of the Apocalypse… But if Peanut gets anymore devious, we just may want to avoid going outside for awhile. X)

  30. Rocket Knight boy

    meh don’t worry marvin zach will be fine…um…well he would have been BEFORE you discoverd he had a use as a speed bump

  31. Tom Flapwell

    Grape uses a blanket?

  32. Raxki Yamato

    Maxie is Evil X3

  33. ReCreate

    lol, grape’s already asleep. xD

  34. HonorèDerazey

    1) WHERE is Zach run into Marvin with his foot?
    2) I thought cats and paws.
    3) Who’s snoring?

    • HonorèDerazey

      BTW, Alone in the Dark was a horrible movie.

      • Alex M.

        Alone in the Dark was not a game of the GameCube?

    • Firewolf

      1. Zach was passed out in the hall, Marvin must have been looking for him and tripped on him.

      2. ???

      3. I think that’s Grape.

      • HonorèDerazey

        Sorry, number 2 was, “I thought cats HAD paws (not feet).

        • Firewolf

          Ah, but then these are Housepets! Cats =D Anthromorphic cats, which have some humanistic features like feet/paws and hands/paws.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Cats feet are called paws but they’re still feet. Little feet are wee paws. Wee paws for station identification.

  35. Firewolf

    ??? Erm, is that Grape and Max? Alone, in a room at night? Okay then…eh, what the heck, Max is taking this all to seriously anyways.

    • Final Silence

      Yes, but to Max’s misbenifit, she fell asleep.

      • Firewolf

        True, but I’d feel weird, being with a girl you liked, alone, in the dark, while she was sleeping. *gulps* 0_0

        • Final Silence

          Yes, but Grape really likes her sleep. She’s gotten used to Peanut waking, but everyone else… RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!

          • Firewolf

            Even more reason to be feeling wierd/afraid.

  36. WingedWolfGirl

    I c ‘nother Biff cameo.

    Oh the lighting, It iz awesome!

  37. Raizel

    Who even uses smelling salts still?

    • Rocket Knight boy

      I know right! smelling salts Stink!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Just wave a skunk in his face.

  38. The_Captain1228

    Lol she fell asleep. (also new avatar ftw)

    • Rocket Knight boy

      lol Chuck greene? rofl

  39. Half-moon

    i wonder what peanuts doing while there doing all this game stuff?

  40. Housepetsfan15

    What the heck are smelling salts?

    • heraledro

      You don’t know?

      YOU DON’T KNOW?!

      Strange; neither do I D:

      • Frank

        Hey, nice avvy. Biker Mice from Mars?

        (Don’t look at me that way. There really was a TV show called like that!)

        • Argent Stonecutter

          It was a comic book first. One of the more successful covers from the turtle bubble. Adolescent Radioactive Black-belt Hamsters and Pre-teen Dirty-gene Kung-fu Kangaroos didn’t do so well.

          (I Am Not Making These Up)

          • Frank

            :D
            That’s the best NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer I’ve seen since the FrothyMugsOfWater TCG

            (surgeon general warning: looking these up in TVTropes.org can cost you anywhere between 20 and 2000 minutes of your life)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Since I’m quoting Anna Russell, of course you get a Quality NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer!

        • heraledro

          Absolutely =D After Batman and Animaniacs, it was the best show of the 90s to me, and it was by far my favorite ^_^

          • Frank

            Try to explain it to one of the modern kids; they’ll probably laugh at you. Especially with a villain called Limburger Cheese.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            ANIMANIACS.

            That is all.

    • Alex M.

      It’s a popular remedy when someone pass out.
      There are salts with very strong smell and high content of ammonia
      that can even wake up deads.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        That’s why I suggested using a skunk instead.

        • Alex M.

          Once your nose gets used to chemical smells, ammonia it’s nothing compared to skunk smell.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I kinda like skunk, in small doses.

          • Alex M.

            The only smell that i think you can compare with a skun it’s Ammonium hydroxide in force and in smell the magnesian mixture.
            Mixed together = Skunk

        • Alex M.

          *Skunk
          :o
          So you like skunks?

          • dalonewolf25

            Oh, he grew this sudden obsession with skunks a while back

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’ve never met a wild skunk closer than ten or so feet, and I was very careful not to scare it. Let it go on its goofy business digging through the underbrush until it was safely out of sight of our campsite and I could let myself move again.

  41. vv45689

    New character time? I mean the house isn’t abandoned . . . Right?

    • Final Silence

      Well, it’s abandoned of spirtual activity at the least.

      • dalonewolf25

        …And as Marvin walks back to his room through the hallway, he sees two twin cats in the distance:
        “Come play with us, Marve! Forever, and ever, and ever!”

        • Final Silence

          And Marvin replys, ” Who the heck is Marve?”

  42. HonorèDerazey

    Uhg, now my mind is going crazy over all the things that might happen in the next strip because I JUST got back from watching Paranormal Activity 2. =/

    • BeatReaktor

      that movie was… meh.

    • iHavezMyBirdo

      Werr, how was it?

      • HonorèDerazey

        Some parts boring, some parts scary.

      • BeatReaktor

        All parts boring, no parts scary

  43. Hoheh

    Denied. Downside of getting energy from grinding gears, you’ll be awake a lot longer than most cats.

  44. Kadziet

    hey! i can swear i commented but i can’t find it

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      prob. got deleted -_-

      • Kadziet

        ya it probably did, that sucks

  45. iHavezMyBirdo

    I like Max in the 3rd panel.

  46. NexusWulf

    hehe just classic grapes asleep ^^ why im not wondering .___. ?

  47. Argent Stonecutter

    I just had an inadvertent opportunity to watch one of my cats reaction to Vaporub. Oh my god, that must smell like the devil himself to a cat. I hate to think how a pet would react to smelling salts.

  48. Kadziet

    The only thing cuter than King… is King in a cowboy hat :D

  49. Rendak

    What about happy King? :3

    • dalonewolf25

      It is an accident that he is happy. It shall be fixed temporarily… E|:3

      • Final Silence

        Hey, why would you want to upset King? His lives bad enough already.

  50. Hoheh

    Have King and Zach met? They could probably weaponize their combined cuteness.

  51. Arro

    Oh snap… very subtle, Rick. I almost didn’t spot that rickroll. :b

  52. aparadekto

    Hey, I can’t view your site properly within Opera, I actually hope you look into fixing this.
