    How rare is non-saucy fan fiction?

    • Lupus

      Very rare indeed. One search on fanfiction.net will show you some really strange pairings… And that’s not even considering the adult fanfiction sites…

      • Amai

        like the fanfic about vash the stampede and his brother knives where turns out reason knives was insane is cause barbies are not anatomically correct and legato is a cabbage

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I can’t even parse that.

        • SoE

          I must read this…

          on another note, Cute little moment with the writer.

    • Frank

      “It’s not saucy fan fiction!”
      “There’s another kind?”

      • Severedevil

        There is also weaksauce fanfiction.

  2. Ryufire

    oh wow the look on Grape’s face in the last panel is just…..0.0

  3. dalonewolf25

    A new challenger has appeared! E|:D!!!

    • dalonewolf25

      Wait, what burrito?
      Alt-Text: I bet you didn’t see the burrito coming back DID YOU

      • Lupus

        Http://www.myfacewhen.com/244

      • Alex M.

        Mmm…Burrito!~

        • Frank

          I should’ve known you’d avatarize grape munching on a burrito

          • XAV TAY TOR TOT

            That burrito is Edible Synthetic Material Class-27A, the highest class possible… for a burrito :P

      • Frank

        Well, the burrito is, you see, I’ll tell you right after this message from our sponsors.
        “Your holiday shopping experience isn’t complete without a Punkin Latte Mochaccino Burrido from Whodathunkit, located at the front of the Book Barn!”
        http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/12/06/after-these-messages/

        • ZV

          The burrito should have its own tag.

      • AvanWolf

        No, no I didn’t XD

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I didn’t expect it, but I’m not surprised.

    • Oren Otter

      Why does that comment make me think of green video game characters chasing an orange bandit past a blue Godzilla with a bowl of yellow noodles on his head and his snout stuck in an indigo dance club?

      • BanditRingtail

        …you have a very detailed imagination.

      • Frank

        The only think I could think of was “new battle buddy”!

      • Pogiforce

        I KNOW what video you’re referencing, but for the life of me I can’t remember the name of it…

  4. Tahoe

    I think that I shall name him Tweaker ^___^

    • Hopper2004

      I’m calling him Res!

      • Naylorfan90

        New character YAY! =D I hope he sticks around, he has a neat design.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          He’s got a name, he’s gonna stay until Rick gets tired of painting tabby stripes.

          • Whiskers

            Do we even know it’s a he or she yet? :o c

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Good point.

          • the Art Wolf

            well appearantly he already got tired of strips because he didn’t seem to care for Grape’s scarf on panel 3.

        • darkgloomie

          hm… I dunno, but I think that cat’s really Prideland’s author in disguise… The Cat Behind The Woman, as it would be.

          • Lupus

            I actually didn’t consider this but… it’s a possibility! :O

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            dat’s wut ai thought ’bout half way through dis comic X3

          • Disk333

            So it seems like I’m not the only one who thinks so too.

  5. Zaneko

    Grape’s new friend is very… expressive

  6. IceKitsune

    Yay a new character and I just love Grapes face in the last panel. lol

  7. Rand

    She honestly looks deadly.

    • Frank

      Grape? Or the maple leaf kitty?

      • kingisawsome

        You mean Res? ’cause that’s its name.

  8. rtlstien

    Yea! Whoodathunkit is back!
    I hope Res is going to be a recurring character, he seems interesting (at least I think he’s a guy)

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Hard to tell with cats, just ask Peanut…or Max…or the crazy cat lady.

    • Lupus

      I think he’s a guy too o_o

    • CaptainPea

      Wait- is it just me, or was it spelled “Whodathunkit” last Monday?

    • Rendak

      It was :o

  9. Alex M.

    I think the lines under the eyes of Res? Make him to look older.

    • icarus

      That’s actually a comic-making (or general artist) rule. the more lines you add to a face, the older it looks. i think the actual rule is something like “for each line, you add a year to their appearance”

      • CaptainPea

        If it worked this literally, then 75 year old men in comics would have a totally incomprehensible face. But the rule is generally true that interior lines on a face make someone look older.

        • icarus

          yeah, it’s not as if the rule is meant to be taken literally. it’s just. y’know. ‘a rule of thumb.’

  10. ZincChloride

    OMG WHAT’S HIS NAME?!?! HE’S ADORABLE!!!

    • dalonewolf25

      Res.

    • Lobogris

      He’s Res, and his tag is a Mapple leaf. Yay! a new character!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Is the maple leaf because they did the young Jeff Bridges for Tron 2.0 in Canada?

  11. Elwood Blutarsky

    Keeping up the bets everyone has going I’m going to wager that’s Miss Auburn…and if it is Grape just made one heck of a first impression.

    • BlueAnubis

      Or perhaps Res is Miss Auburn’s pet…

      • dalonewolf25

        Or, perhaps Res is the one who writes Miss Auburn’s stories…
        *nudge nudge wink wink*

        • GameCobra

          *nudge-nudge* ;)

          • Alex M.

            *nudge-nudge* :P

          • Frank

            I think I know where this is going. I’m just going to say putting a tack in a mod’s chair would have the same effect.

        • Noah

          I agree with that theory ^ ^

        • CaptainPea

          …or maybe Res is just an extra.
          Looking at it practically, his collar and tag and eyes just happen to perfectly match up with the color scheme.

          • CaptainPea

            …of the background of today’s strip. I should finish my sentences.

        • Justice193

          I for one am on this band wagon, ONLY I have something to add, I think that this IS Miss Auburn, and the human is merely a stand in for legal reasons. *looks two posts down* but someone appears to have beaten me to this theoretical mind leap XD

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If Miss Auburn wasn’t human they’d have mentioned that already.

      • Indagare

        Yes, but Miss Auburn could be publishing books that Res is actually writing. A long time ago women writers had to use male-sounding names or have men related to them publish their works because publishers didn’t think anyone would buy something written by women (and if you think that’s silly, consider J.K. Rowling).

        In this world it could be that publishers might refuse to publish books written by pets because they’d feel no one would read them (also things would probably get complicated legally due to pets being owned by someone). So Res might have his owner publish his books for him (assuming Res ,is a him) and lets her get all the credit while he gets… er… treats?

        • GameCobra

          That’s what i’m thinking as well. But i have a feeling though that Miss Auburn is doing this in a good way.

          • Indagare

            Probably, though it remains to be seen. It will be interesting to see how Rick plays this out.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Res could be ghostwriting for Miss Auburn, but that wouldn’t make Res Miss Auburn.

          • Indagare

            Well, certainly not the human named Miss Auburn, but, since the series is associated with her, the person writing it is the ‘Miss Auburn’ in everyone’s mind therefore whoever’s writing the actual stories is the ‘Miss Auburn’, even if the writer is not a female human.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Depends. Some authors pseudonym’s stick. Some don’t. They’re not all Mark Twain (Sam Clemens) or Lewis Carrol (Charles Dodgson), some are Paul French (Isaac Asimov) or the innumerable ephemeral pseudonyms of Randal Garret.

        • Corodan

          For the record, she wrote the story for HP on napkins, because she couldn’t afford conventional stuff.

    • garbud

      I Thought the same thing

  12. ZV

    Yay, he has a name, new reoccurring character I hope! This was a really good one, I love the name of the coffee shop, nice touch! ;)

  13. Fuzzypaws

    Res is cute! And I wonder who is being slashed ^.^

    • Chip Uni

      Errr… have you seen the characters from Pridelands?

      All of them!

  14. dalonewolf25

    Oh noes! I’ve just digitally signed my soul to Rick’s webcomic and am now doomed to his cartoonical whims!

    • thegamist

      I don’t know?
      it’s still better then the devil

      • Mekyro

        No its not. its worse… …far far worse.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      >.>
      <.<
      …….. wut :| ?

  15. BlueAnubis

    Today, we meet a new cat.
    This new cat’s name is apperently Res.
    Everyone, say “Hi-R*shot before he could make awful joke.*

    • dalonewolf25

      Win, Sir, win.
      *gives prize–*
      Oh wait, you’re dead…meh.
      *leaves prize next to him*

    • Frank

      And tomorrow we’ll meet a dog called deaf.

      • dalonewolf25

        I think Def is better, though. That would be awesome also, so here’s your prize!
        *gives Frank a seemingly empty box*

        • Frank

          Uh, thanks?
          *falls in*

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            frank did u make dat just fer dis occasion X3?

          • Frank

            I had the box, and I had my regular “standing” avatar. All I did was rotate avatar and paste the box over him.

            So yes. But only because I knew it could be done in three minutes

      • Inu225

        And the next day we’ll meet a cat called Tec
        XD

      • Argent Stonecutter

        No, that’d have to be a leopard.

      • Rocket Knight boy

        Then a RAY will come along and everyone shouts BOO RAY!

        now i take my leave lol

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Don’t forget Jack, who we’ll meet on an airplane for maximum comedic effect.

        • Rayne

          I want to get this name joke

    • Naylorfan90

      I lol’ed, good sir.

  16. LegendaryHero

    Quiet writer type? I have the feeling Res and Peanut are gonna be great friends actually.

    • BlueAnubis

      Quiet? Are we talking about the same Peanut here?

      • LegendaryHero

        I was thinking along the lines of their creative works.

  17. Celysus

    Oooh, saucy fanfic AND a spacey new character. :D

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      AND gwape’s max face ;3

  18. Profesor Rod

    Quite jumpy, aren’t we? |3

  19. Mekyro

    I do belive that our new charecter IS miss. Auburn. I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT>.

    • Frank

      Well, her reaction does seem reminesent of JK Rowling… who also did her writing in coffee shops…
      Is “Res” even a girl’s name?

      • Firewolf

        What? But how?

        • Chip Uni

          Well, J.K. Rowling probably brought a small computer and probably typed while sipping coffee…

          • Naylorfan90

            XD

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Miss Auburn is already signing cats 160-170 in the bookstore.

      • garbud

        Thats a decoy

    • Cubone

      Definitely. Grape’s gonna go insane.

  20. Mekyro

    RES=Miss. AUBURN I SWEAR. think about it people.

    • Normal Black Cat

      That’s what I think too. Res maybe a real Miss Auburn.

    • Firewolf

      If this is true, then my comment at the bottom was for moot. =P

    • Firewolf

      How does a maple leaf relate to Auburn?

    • Firewolf

      And further more, notice NO eyelashes. Grape doesn’t have em either,but she doesn’t go by Miss Grape. Just saying. ARGH! Suspense now builds!

      • Firewolf

        And for a close, isn’t Miss Auburn meeting other cats right now?

        • Frank

          Coffee break! That’s what coffee shops are supposed to be for, right?

        • Normal Black Cat

          Well… The true writer is maybe a pet cat. Miss Auburn maybe his owner. She pretend to be the writer.

          Their a lot of reason.
          - Because Res is so shy and don’t want anyone know he is a writer. So his owner pretend to be a writer for him.
          - Because his owner is so selfish. She take the stage and force Res write for her in the back.
          - Because the director don’t want anyone to know that the writer is a PET. Not HUMAN. So the director force Rec’s owner to pretend to be the writer.

          It’s all just my imagination. The only one who know the true is Rick.

          ps.I’m sorry. I’m not good at English language.

          • ZV

            Interesting theories, but I hope none of them turn out to be true. Also even with a few grammatical quirks, your English is fine and its easy to understand what you wrote. :)

          • Firewolf

            Dang it, Now I’m restless again.

          • GameCobra

            Another reason could be that Res just doesn’t have the right to write. (heh)

            There are certain laws in the Housepets universe that more than likely prevent Pets from doing jobs like ordinary human. An example is the K-9 unit. so there’s a chance that sometimes, situations like this that Miss Auburn may have to pretend to be the actual author in his/her place.

        • Mekyro

          Wow you have much to say. cool.

      • kingisawsome

        actually not all writers go by there real names like Lemony Snicket

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Ghost-writer, maybe.

    • CaptainPea

      I thought this at first, but the final panel kinda makes me think Res is just meant as a one-shot joke character, or at most just a fan like Grape. The over-defensive reaction wouldn’t suit someone who was trying to hide the fact that they are actually the author of the book everyone is there for, it makes more sense when taken at face value (Res is embarrassed from being found out).

      Such a person would probably (at least in fiction) respond with a more cryptic “Something like that…”

  21. Hopper2004

    I like Res already!
    He’s funny. :3

  22. Hopper2004

    DUDE! I got an idea!!
    What if Res is Auburn’s Cat!
    He said (And I quote.)
    Grape: “Are you here for Miss Auburn?”
    Res:”Uh, Yeah, Sorta.”
    -End flash back-
    How do you sortov be there for Auburn? Unless he her cat!

    • Hopper2004

      He is*

    • Leafy

      Yea it does seems like it but why would Miss Auburn keep her cat out in the open with a buritto o-o
      And besides it could also mean other things too like he just there for the book like Max is.

    • Frank

      How to sort-of be there for Ms. Auburn:
      Following A corporate model, Ms. Auburn has hired a series of cats as a “focus group” to review her books before they come out. The cats don’t live with her, but have to go with her to these siginings (or maybe Res forgot to hand in his review, which is what he’s fyping right now)

      Well, that’s one wild speculation.

    • lightwolf21

      I was thinking this, along with Res being a ghost-writer for her.

    • Mekyro

      We established this.

  23. Leafy

    Btw how do you guy know if Res is really a guy. I mean come on I was shocked when I found out Grape was a girl.
    So if you guys ask me we are left with a small cliffhanger :p

  24. Buckdida

    If we can’t even tell if Res is a boy or girl, how can we even tell if Res is actually Miss Auburn?

    • Frank

      Women have written under men’s names and men have written under women’s names. Why can’t a tom cat write as a molly cat or a molly cat as a tom cat?

      (Tom and Molly are the correct terms. I checked)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Tom and Queen.

        • Frank

          Queen is just as valid as Molly

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I have never, in my never-you-mind years, in umpty-ump cities and countries, heard of “Molly” as the term for a female cat. Always been queen.

          • FunkyChicken

            Well you can’t call a female cat a “queen cat”. That just doesn’t work.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You don’t call a female bovine a “cow cattle”, you call it a cow. You don’t call a female feline a “queen cat”, you call it a queen.

          • Pecan

            I always used the terms “She-cat” and “Tom”. That might be Erin Hunter’s fault, though.

          • FunkyChicken

            I concede to Argent. That makes much more sense, actually.

          • Mekyro

            Mind, that erin hunter says “queen” as well.

  25. xhunterko

    Oh trust me, I didn’t forget the burrito.

  26. Inu225

    Whoodathunkit coffee shop?
    Ok whoodathunkup a name like that?
    Mr. Whatshisname better explain this whatchamacallit.
    Before Ainokea anymore.

  27. Setta

    ‘Res’ is Latin for ‘Thing.’ Like ‘Res Publica’ = ‘Thing of the People’ = Republic.
    Thing was also the disembodied hand from the Addams Family.
    Res might be Mrs. Auburn’s right-hand cat…

    • Setta

      Or, rather, ‘write’ ‘hand’ cat.

      • Firewolf

        *Brick’d*

      • Naylorfan90

        *facepalms*

  28. Firewolf

    LOL! =D LOL! =D This is definitely my new favorite! My first book was fan fiction and I STILL won’t let anyone read it just like that. =) I feel for Maple.

    • Firewolf

      Er, Res I mean.

    • Naylorfan90

      Oh really? That’s pretty neat, we have something in common. For my first book I’m taking the main parts, characters, and themes from my first fanfic and jumping off from there.

      Fan fiction forever!!!

  29. Pecan

    So… theories so far are:
    It’s either Res Auburn,
    Miss Auburn’s right hand/ writer/groupie/etc.,
    A critic/reviewer,
    Or just a new character.

    Okay!… (Or could be another Pap…)

    • SonictheHedgehog125

      I think it’s just a new character who likes Miss Auburn’s stories

  30. Whaaa

    ……rabbits in the background?…

    • ctcmjh

      No, they’re all wearing bunny ears to try to confuse the reader, just in case they are all bit characters in a webcomic.

      • Pecan

        Joey-Syndrome, anyone?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Rick has made his kitty ears long like that in the past. There’s some shots of Fiddler and Keys that make them look almost rabbit-like.

  31. gaboris

    Heh oh those fan-fickers, I can never understand those things, but it’s always funny listening to them aboot it. XD
    BTW am I the slow one again, but what’s with that burrito? O_o”

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The burrito was mentioned in a previous strip.

      • gaboris

        Hmmm dang I missed that one. :p
        Thx for the info. :)

  32. NeoKariz

    Idk why but i like the new guy already xD

  33. Bucyrus

    “If you read mine, I get to read yours! … Wait, do I WANT to?” XD

  34. Salenstormwing

    Love the name of the coffee shop in the book store. Whoodathunkit!

  35. Vdrake

    Beyond that it might BE the writer or her cat, it’s also possible that Res here doesn’t actually LIKE the series. I mean, maybe Res simply has different literary tastes; I mean, if you don’t like Twilight, would you admit that at a booksigning? The fans might tear you apart. XD

  36. madmoney

    cant u see the dude is from canida
    *looks at oter commentaters*
    have u no pride

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Think he/she is a Leafs fan?

  37. APERSON WHO COMMENTS

    xD Canadian cat who writes fanfiction

  38. Stefan Wulph

    Uhmm anyone else get the feeling that this new cat is the actual writer of the Pridelands?

    • Indagare

      I think nearly everyone, therefore it’s very unlikely that Res is since it’s almost never been that obvious.

  39. LethalKitsuneWarrior

    I can sympathize with the grey cat…had my brother walk in on the middle of writing a Sonic fanfic that had a pairing he didn’t like… I swear, I did keep it PG-13 though.

  40. yarrofox

    whoa! another cat?! No way!
    also: I love saucy fan fiction!

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      How do you like fanfiction? IT’S BORING

  41. Whitekitsune

    Hmm…something about the last panel of today’s comic makes me wish the Great Kitsune would show up again soon. I can’t put my finger on it though…

    On another note, crazy fan theories aside, I like this new cat.

    • xhunterko

      So, someone else thinking along my train of thought. Though not that exactly. I’m just having fun watching the pandemonium ensue among the fandom. Though I am getting that same feeling from arcs 19,26,27. Going back and reading those comcis comments were fun. It was wonderful what Rick did, especially before and after introducing the spirit dragon, heh, the reactions. Eh hem. On another note, I have popcorn. Care to sit by me?

      • Whitekitsune

        Heh, sure. I like the way you think. *sits down cheerfully*
        Personally, I like the way Grape’s expression is so trolly in that last panel. Maybe Max is rubbing off on her or something.

  42. Argent Stonecutter

    Mooch? Begging for food like a stray cat? What’s next, cat doors? They have thumbs, you know!

  43. garbud

    go new hopefuly permanet pet

  44. FarmMan1812

    Uhh… interesting.

  45. Argent Stonecutter

    The first coffeeshop in a bookstore was “The Upstart Crow” in Berkeley, back in the early ’80s. It seems to be in San Diego now.

  46. ProudOne

    Now i’m almost sure she’ll discover that the grey cat’s the original author of the Pridelands ;D

    • T-Squared

      WHY DID YOU HAVE TO RUIN AND SPOIL IT FOREVER IHATEYOYIHATEYOU
      *shot with a tranquilizer dart*
      *fump*

      rofl. XD (just kidding about the whole thing)

  47. Yuki

    Omg Fan Fiction xD
    I love this stuff!

  48. T-Squared

    I love Grape’s expression in the last panel. XD

  49. NexusWulf

    BIG GRIN OF EVILS … and being curious ^^

  50. Mlatu

    Sorta there for the writer, secret story, not saucy fan fiction, Could we have met the real genius behind the prideland books?

  51. FerreTrip

    I sometimes feel like I’m the only guy who DOESN’T write saucy fanfiction. Or if I do write romance, it’s SFW. Not that I HAVE written any yet, but I’ve got just this teddy-bear-cute adorable one in my head…dunno if I’ll ever write it, but…

    On the comic: NOICE. X3 Oh, Grape, you naughty little girl.

  52. Shady Kitsune

    Is it really a good idea in the first place to write something you don’t want anyone to see in public? xP

    GASP! The cat has a name! Res! Unless it’s a typo for “rest.”

  53. Stevie Maxwell

    Y’know, Res might not be writing stuff willingly…

    The Christmas season seems to always feature minor mistreatment of pets — Sasha’s dad, Pete — so why not Miss Auburn forcing Res to write Pridelands stuff?

    • NykVerien

      I’m sorry to say, but that is a bit depressing.

  54. Mika

    I’m thinking that’s Mrs. Auburn’s cat…

  55. Ada

    It’s a punkin’ latte mochaccino INSIDE a burrito, INSIDE a cat, INSIDE a coffee shop, INSIDE a bookstore, INSIDE RICK’S HEAD!!!

    DA DABUdadu BAPAda PA GOOOSH!!!

    • Naylorfan90

      …you win…

  56. sonic id furreh!!!

    ai think der’s sumthin in gwape’s eye in panel two :|

  57. GodofAwesome

    I’m just more interested in this wonderfully ironic coffee shop.

  58. captainpea

    His computer is so magical it can turn into a book.

    Also, I think anyone with a lick of sense could have told Res ahead of time that a coffee burrito wouldn’t be very good.

  59. vv45689

    Res is really cute lol. I like Him?

  60. Rayne

    I’m just gonna say now since everyone made the speculation about res righting the book for his owner it probably won’t be true now.

    Or at least I would change things if everyone predicted what I had coming.

  61. FinalSilence

    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)! The Current Bid is 9696, a Truck, and a Crumb! This Is Getting Psychotic, But Lets Keep Going Anyway!

    • dalonewolf25

      I bet over 9000!!!!!(9001) cookies that Res is Pete’s new avatar, or 8999 cookies that Res is Miss Auburn turned into a cat by Pete. E|:P
      *Off the tangent, no?*

    • Frank

      Well, I’m going to bet Rick was originally going to have Res really be Miss Aburn, but because so many people have suggested it, hes going to say he changed his mind.

    • Rayne

      I’m with frank

      • garbud

        or he is just messing with us but he wouldn’t do that would he?

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      9001 of those cookies are mine, If I win, you’re all in debt with me, and I’ll send out my goons to collect. Just wonder what you’ve gotten yourselves into. (Trollface avatar helps when collecting debt)

  62. Corodan

    I’m hoping Auburn will actually turn out to be a lioness.

    • garbud

      that would be asome

  63. Foldo

    Everyone really forgot what Max said Friday? =>”No, definitely a cat person; she even takes photos with the cats and signs her name to them AND the book”

    • garbud

      there were no pics i think

      • Argent Stonecutter

        We didn’t see the pictures, but I’m sure Max and Grape would have reacted if they’d been pictures of two cats instead of a cat and a human.

        • Foldo

          I just wanted pointing out the fact Miss Auburn signs her name to the cats AND the book. And after this strip, it took a new sense.

  64. Levi

    I got five bucks that’s the real author.

    • Frank

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I got cookies.

        • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

          Firefox hogs all the cookies. sad facial expression

  65. Raela

    Grape’s face in the last panel = WIN

  66. BeatReaktor

    I like that cats tag… hehehe :D

  67. Just-This-Guy

    A pot leaf collar tag eh……..interesting :)

  68. WingedWolfGirl

    Hmmmmm…
    Luv Res’s Fur pattern, makes it looks like their are circles under his/her eyes :3

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Annnnd that statment is relevent because,
      I can relate to staying up late-night/early moring to work on fan …stuff.

  69. CaptainPea

    This high ceiling is freaking me out, I would not be able to stomach my pumpkin latte burrito in such a cavernous coffee shop.

  70. Hoheh

    Grape’s so friendly!

  71. AflacMan13

    I have noticed something. As time has gone by and I have read this webcomic more and more; I have noticed Grapes voice inside my head as I read the comic has gotten more and more girly. Anybody else see this?

    • FerreTrip

      All I can see is your slightly disturbing avatar O_O;;

      But kinda-sorta. I try to keep it somewhat boyish to match her tomgirl attitude.

  72. XAV TAY TOR TOT

    I did NOT see the burrito coming at all. It’s one sneaky Synthetic Edible Material.

  73. The Wolf Next Door

    Aww come on, let me read it >:3

  74. Twilix01

    Theory: The unnamed cat IS the writer…. >-> just a theory, nothing else.

  75. Lordgriffin

    I have to wonder, Most cats are born in litters, would Grape’s siblings be, Strawberry, Raspberry and Boysenberry?

  76. Nia

    Fanfiction, the only reason majority of fanbases can’t shut their cakeholes.

  77. Lasonya Kalter
  78. Chris

    Rabbits. Rabbits everywhere.

  79. garbud

    and yes i love grapes face in the last panle

  80. CastformCaper

    Why does the new cat have a maple leaf coller?

  81. Kamon

    hey look a new character

    • Kamon

      kinda jumpy like Zach

  82. Argent Stonecutter

    That burrito sounds better all the time. Caffeinated junk food is a hacker standby. Caffeinated peppermints. Caffeinated lollypops. Even caffeinated bacon.

  83. Pogiforce

    I find myself betting that gray cat IS Miss Auburn.

    • Sperkle

      I was getting the very same feeling. It would make perfect sense that it is.

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Res could be Miss Auburn’s cat.

  84. Pogiforce

    I don’t know how people can both assume Res is the writer of Pridelands, and also a Male. If what we’ve learned about pridelands is any indication, there’s a lot of saucy romance between the female characters and the big buff idealized male characters. Like your typical romance novel middle aged housewives buy. In which case I seriously doubt, if Rez IS the writer, that they are male. Men don’t write those books.
    On a side note, it seems very likely that the cat IS the writer, because if you think about it Pridelands is all about animals. typically speaking, it seems the animals write about animals, the humans write about humans. Hence why Peanut’s comics have no humans in them.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      There’s a lot of male writers who have paid the rent money with Harlequin romances.

  85. Half-moon

    grape seems to like the burrito

  86. Sperkle

    Wow a green maple leaf. I LOVE Grapes face in the final panel

  87. Profesor Rod

    Am I the only one that thinks Res is female?

    Maybe, but I’m biased because most of saucy fanfiction authors are female |3

  88. Nitrosparxx

    …Did anyone notice that He doesn’t have the Normal almond shaped eyes?

  89. Nach

    peanut said a couple of comics ago… “you know what they say, don’t meet your heroes” (or something like that xD)

    I bet grape has just met her hero :D

  90. Mekyro

    WHAT’S A “PUMKIN” is it a pumPkin?

    • silverfang16

      It could be just a catchy name. :/

  91. pieman

    I’m eating some soup

  92. silverfang16

    Grape just gave me a huge flashback of the Great Kitsune.

  93. Oren Otter

    In the Otter Island Multiverse, Ress is the name of a dimension with absolutely no substance. I wonder if the same holds true for Res or the saucy fan fiction.

  94. pet_panda

    i think res belongs to miss auburn and is the one who really writes pridelands, his owner is just the public face and or editor

  95. Slash0mega

    watch, that cat IS the athor of the books. i will so roflmao if i am right :P

  96. Snowmon

    I do like the new guy. So is it pronounced Res or Res?
    I mean… “Reese” or “Ress”

    • Hoheh

      I pronounce it “Rez”

  97. I Am...

    I swear…that last panel has so much potential for an extended joke. ^^

  98. anthroguy101

    If Res is a ghost-writer I am so going to write an FWR for him.
