    Close-up kittyfaces!

    • dalonewolf25

      “I can see your soul…”

      • Snow

        Pfft that has to be LONG gone from meº→º

  2. xhunterko

    Wait, I do believe that’s the second computer we’ve seen in Housepets. Whose is it I wonder? Max’s?

    • xhunterko

      And eh hem, I love Grape in fan-girl mode.

    • ReCreate

      I think its safe to assume it belongs to one of their owners.

      • Shady Kitsune

        It could very well be Max’s. Peanut has his own Wii, so why not?
        It’s already pretty much established that pets in this universe seem closer to adopted children than any old “Fluffy.” Well, the spoiled ones anyway.

  3. Ryufire

    I see new kitty close up avatars coming!

  4. IceKitsune

    lol I can’t wait till we actually get to see her.

  5. The watcher

    The suspense should be as fun as seeing it.

  6. Pseudo Faux

    Hmmm my original comment seems to be stuck in a pending moderation state

    • Trefoiler

      Yeah… can’t get too loose with your words in here. No matter the context; if it might contain a questionable term, its flagged.

      No worries, though. I don’t think any less of you. In fact-! I have a post of my own to check up on. Thanks for reminding me.

      • Trefoiler

        (As dictated in the form of a REPLY to PSEUDO. Crazy comments might just goof this up, too, or fix the whole thing. At least I’ve tried.)


        Question: How much can you cuss on this.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Not at all.

        • Foxstar

          If the filters don’t catch it, I will. And the filters don’t autoban. But I do.



          • sonic id furreh!!!

            foxstar, dat just made u sound laike ah ninja….. good job


            Yeah, It did seem like one of those “Chuck Norris will hunt you down” except “Foxstar will hunt you down…. With his banhammer”

      • Frank

        “As the sun rose over the farm, the ‘censored’ crowed” has always cracked me up.

  7. Krakatau

    Im viewing this in my blackberry torch and i cant read the alt text, will someone help me?

    • ZV

      Added to the top comment for you. Grape has some weird body parts she wants signed. ;)

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        What could she possibly want signed? Her paws? Her tail?

        • Trefoiler

          Her mouth. No, her ear.

          Oh.. no! it’s the Vet all over gain! D:

        • Chip Uni

          Fans can get very, VERY creative with which body parts they want signed…

          (“For the third and final time, I do NOT sign spleens!”)

        • A Cheetah

          wasn’t that sarcasm on grape’s part?

          if not the funeral procession comment now makes MUCH less sense.

      • Krakatau

        Thanks! :)

  8. ZV

    Max is really cute in this one.


    Miss Auburn should definitely be a dog; that would just be SO hilarious!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      It would be very funny but wouldn’t they have figured that out by now, she’s apparently not a private person.

      • Indagare

        Well, unless a dog actually writes the books and Miss Auburn is a front.

      • GameCobra

        The Author of the series can indeed be a dog just to be funny in my opinion.

        I can personally see something funny also like Grape, Max, all the cats or a mix of the three not knowing until they actually see her, just going by what people said/wrote =P

    • Frank

      Or a mouse. Or a fish.
      Oh! Oh! I know! A bird!

    • Frank

      On second thought, if she is a dog, it would be interesting how that fits into the whole catlover/doglover argument

  10. Inu225

    A least be happy she is even signing stuff.
    Not like Bill Watterson.
    One of these days…

  11. Mekyro

    murphy’s law says that she inevitably will be a dog

  12. Corodan

    She’d get a real kick out of that anyways.


    • Rocket Knight boy

      (Begins to clap slowly)

    • Naylorfan90

      *uses kage bunshin to create an entire stadium full of applause*


      Nice scout avatar

  13. GameCobra

    #1 Thing to do on that list:
    Get pet by Miss Auburn

    calling it!



    • Frank

      “Alright, everybody. Cats wanting to get their book signed, make a line to the left. Cats wanting to get pet by Ms. Auburn, make a line to the right.”
      “What’s the third line for?”

  14. I Am...

    well that’s….oddly generic and specific. O.o Let’s not get any more specific…

  15. Fuzzypaws

    This was targeted directly at me, wasn’t it? *giggles*

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      *read comment*
      wuuuhhhhh…. :| ?
      *brain starts working*
      OHHHHH ha ha ai get it… cuz ur user name X3 heh

      • Fuzzypaws

        Also we are friends and l commission him a lot and it is something that comes up quasi regularly. *giggles*

  16. Trefoiler

    B-b… but that’s where I’m getting her name tattooed!! DX

    These two are adorable from every angle, in every panel, but especially Grape in the middle two and Max in the last two. ^_^

    I’m excited to see how this pans out! Thanks, Rick!

  17. Slie

    rick’s using some different and intersting angles in this one…. i like it :D

    • KimbaWLion

      The computer webcam look is very nice

      • Frank

        I don’t see a webc– oh

  18. Firewolf

    Yeaaaah…..feet……sure. Also I like the eyes of Max and Grape in panel 3. Just like your other artwork. I’ve never seen you use those eyes (pupils) on Housepets before.

  19. Ryufire

    In panel 3 It’s like Grape is saying: “See Max they love us the humans, they are watching us right now” Max: “WOW”!!!

  20. FinalSilence

    Pushing PG ratings in our minds… again…XD

  21. FinalSilence

    Now Were Talkin’! The Current Bids Are At 610 and a Crumb! The Question Is This: Which Pets Will Be There And What Do You Think The Author Looks Like Or Is? Also, People Have Been Bidding On Peanut’s Secret Santa (Who He Got)! Now, Lets Begin The Bidding (Again)!


    • Chip Uni

      I bid ten cookies that Joey will be there, in suit.

      • Frank

        Now that this has come up, I don’t feel awkard saying:
        Eight cookies on Squeak being there
        Four cookies on Squeak knowing Ms. Auburn personally
        Two cookies on Squeak being Ms. Auburn

    • Frank

      Has anyone bet on the simple fact that Ms. Auburn will, in fact, be human?
      1 cookie on tha–
      Oh wait, I’m out of cookies
      *checks e-mail*
      “cookie created successfully”
      Where was I? Oh yes: 1 cookie on that

  22. Kitch

    Shouldn’t be “Signee’s Remorse”? I dunno…

  23. gaboris

    I was thinking the same thing as Grape (That the author would be a “no cat” person not that bodypart… part. :p), this time I’m happy I got it wrong. X3
    But Grapes reaction… ouch that’s a bit hars there. But still so funny. XD

  24. e

    oh no she get the fangirl diease! quick to the vet before its spreads!

  25. Mika

    Author cameo?

    • Frank

      Not unless “Ms. Auburn” is Rick in a wig

      …though if Ms. Auburn turns out to be a yellow chinchilla, that would be awesome

  26. Salenstormwing

    Next there will be a No Signing Name w/ Hearts instead of Dots on “i”s.

    • Frank

      Not even if it’s the “i” in “evil”?

      • Snow

        how about a i in “Anvil”


    I bet the author is gonna be like the crazy cat lady from The Simpsons

    • Mordark

      Or Adam West from Family guy with his Kitty Kross Bow! Bet she can’t throw any of them over the house like the cat lady did in the Simpsons though.

  28. Whitekitsune

    I’m not one for consistency, but is Max’s bitemark a lot bigger here? Or is it just me?

    • FreakazoidVocaloid

      Nah, it’s not just you, I think it’s bigger as well. It seems to be most of his ear in this one… *shrugs*

    • WingedWolfGirl

      The closer you are to his face, the bigger the ear-bite.

  29. The Wolf Next Door

    Will you sign my bell… DANG IT!

  30. FerreTrip

    …Okay, um…What exactly would Grape wanted to have signed?…O_o;

  31. Argent Stonecutter

    So who will King get a present for this year? I put 30 cookies on Sasha.

  32. Argent Stonecutter

    Unlikely Prediction #327 – Pete’s going to be there in a new (and previously unknown) avatar.

    • dalonewolf25

      Unlikely Prediction #328 – There will be cake…
      Unlikely Prediction #329 – It will be canon to a character in the forums…

    • NykVerien

      If he shows up as the author of Pridelands or is her husband than everyone is DOOMED!!!!!!!!

      PS I don’t know where I got that idea.

  33. .:AventGard:.

    Unlikely Preidction #330 _ The Giant Fox Person thing {I don’t know the exact word or anything, just calling him that} will show up for a surprise visit.

  34. WingedWolfGirl

    *reads Alt-text*
    Actually, “foot” would make sense since it (front paw or back paw) would be the only part of an animal not covered in fur; thus being perfect to have a tattoo-er trace over …once signed.

    …unless of course your one of those “dye-each-individual-hair” kinda people.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You get people in SL wearing detailed tattoo overlays on a fur-textured avatar. I find that disconcerting.

      • Frank

        It’s not tatoo, it’s dye!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          It still looks just plain wrong to me.

          • Frank

            Said the ferret with blue hair

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Huh? The problem isn’t that it’s dye, it’s that if you dye fur or hair it shifts and moves and details get blurred out. If they had tats that showed the fur texture that’d be fine, but what they have makes it look like they’re covered in fur-textured body paint instead of actual fur, and completely blows the illusion.

  35. Tommy

    Max looks soo cuuute

  36. Frank

    Too bad Bino isn’t injured right now. It would be funny to see him sneak in to get his cast signed by the author, only to have the cast be identified as a “specific body part”

    Why is thee a loan ad below me?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I don’t know if there’s a way of blocking trackbacks.

    • Pecan

      That would be funny just for what it would imply about Bino. Can you say Blackmail?

      • captainpea

        Guess it runs in the family…

        • Frank

          Wait, what would that mean for Fido?



          • Shady Kitsune

            He is the one who wanted Peanut out of the Good Old Dogs Club for being a “cat lover.” Fido got Peanut back into it though.

  37. Nia

    Actually that’s the same saw Robert Pattison issued, after some females tried to get him to remove his shirt for a photo.

  38. Mekyro

    Miss Auburn is a dog 1:6,678,934,542 and rising
    Peanut will be involved 456:1 and falling
    next strip will be the unveigling 7:1 and rising

    • Frank

      Wait, when you say “1:6 billion and rising”, do you mean the probability ratio is rising (making it more probable) or the denominator of 6 billion is rising (making it less probable)? I seem to remember from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that saying “and rising” meant the latter.

      • Mekyro

        its getting less probable.i see somone else is a guide fan, so in your case the probability is 1:42.

  39. silverfang16

    I suppose this will somehow go horribly wrong and turn Grape off of Pridelands.

  40. Hoheh

    I’m a cat person who loves cuteness. Dogs are no slouches in cuteness.

  41. sansash

    Looook intoo my eyeees… they are very biiig and hard to miiiisss… bluh…

    • sansash

      Also, they have Pac-Man eyes.

  42. Mekyro
