    Res needs a hug!

    • LethalKitsuneWarrior

      I want to kidnap him and actually show him what a nice home is, not some cell where the jailkeeper is a perfectionist who bangs on the cagebars if you step out of line once (figuratively).

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      *hug res* he he he… kitty huggles ^-^

    • AflacMan13

      I was just looking through the bonuses section and saw the fanart of the PS2 Pridelands game. That would be awesome if that came into one of the story arcs somehow.

    • Asdf

      From grape!
      They should be a couple.
      A forced couple >:D


        Isn’t Grape like going out with Max?

        • Bleh

          Too bad for Max.

      • Frank

        Poor Peanut!

        • Lupus

          Poor Max!

          • Celtiawindsinger

            Poor Res!


        Poor Tarot! (Shes going out w/ peanut)

  2. cesarinthewhitedragon

    poor guy, he will have a insane ammount of creepos on him.. including grape and beg for autographs..
    also it doesnt seems a good thing to be the pet of the popular writer XD

  3. IceKitsune

    I saw (and so did everyone else) that coming. lol I hope this arc isn’t the last we see of Res (but I have a feeling it will be)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      So, Monday, we find out if he’s also ghostwriting the Pridelands stories…

      • No one

        I was thinking the exact same thing

      • Frank

        …Or Rick could somehow cut this off and leave us in suspense until next year!

      • ScheitzofrenicFox

        hmm.. so he could be telling the truth about it not being saucy fanfiction… and that would also make the perfectionist bit true… (if they come out faster, she makes more money)

        • ScheitzofrenicFox

          make sense* “true” was the wrong word.

      • Axleswift

        I think he just does the conversations. It’s not unknown for authors to have great stories but be unable to put in good conversations so they get others to help them. The problem is that those helpers rarely get acknowledged. Everyone knows of George Lucas but few know of the people that actually helped by rewriting the dialogue for the original Star Wars.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Too bad he wasn’t able to find anyone to rewrite the dialog for the prequels.

    • Aldon

      and well yeah a want him back he’s kinda cute with his shyness and stuff….Rick put him back!!!!(pls XD)

    • Spirit Studios 2010

      Who didn’t see this coming?

  4. A-coro

    So Grape just talked trash on Auburn? Nice.

    • Masterkev

      ha, she was talking about what max did (1st panel)

      Hint: “Speaking of Max, where is he?” (2nd panel)

      • Rare Poster

        In the sixth panel (the “If it’s actually painful” part talking about Res’ owner) is what A-coro was talking about.

        • Masterkev

          No, i know that – i’m just pointing out that the story Grape was telling was about Max. As for Auburn, i know she was talking about her.

          (i wish i heard the whole story of Max’s fail on a pool) XD

  5. Mekyro

    This wont be the last of res, the arc cant stop here. no no no!

    • Frank

      This all takes place on Christmas eve! Of course it can’t stop here!

  6. Ichiinu

    Well, let’s hope Grape can keep a secret, and doesn’t go all Fancat on him…

  7. Leafy


    • WingedWolfGirl

      I knew it.
      …and I didn’t bet cookies this time -_-

    • Justme

      I predict that kitty Res is the real author of pridelands! :o *DUN DUN DUN*

      • Gavinfoxx

        I second this!

        • Benny

          Thirded…if that’s even a word.

    • Lupus

      Apparently caps lock is cruise control for cool.

      • Celtiawindsinger



        I have GOT to remember that “Caps lock is cruise control for cool” line.

  8. ZV

    Poor Res, new worst moment on his life; except luckily its Grape, so I think things will work out for the better for him this go around. :)

    • Pseudo Faux

      There’s always violence is if fails. Violence solves everything around Grape.

  9. Mekyro

    new worst moment? somones sadistacal.

    • Mekyro

      IM NOT CALLIN RES SADISTIC (to clarify)

      • jozaud

        “sadistical” is not a word

      • jozaud

        sorry mistyped. “SADISTACAL” is also not a word

  10. HonorèDerazey

    Me thinks Res isn’t a neurotypical.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Yeh, I so get a “hey, that’s me” vibe here. Except I gave up writing saucy fanfic a long time ago.

  11. Leafy

    btw did anyone notice Res leaf change O-o from green to yellow. hmmm.

    • Mekyro

      “Hey look at that, retconning the color of Res’s tag because people are acting dumb


      • Elwood Blutarsky

        I thought it was a “fall colors” gag.

      • Leafy

        is that sapose to be smart or just to make look stuipd o-o?

      • Darcin

        You are quite positive Res’s tag has always been colored yellow, and not any other color. Frankly, the notion that it was green strikes you as reckless and foolhardy.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Apparently he didn’t like the idea that people might think it was catnip or something.

      • CalaverX11


        Viewers Are Morons.[TM]


        Catnip…. Or another certain kind of plant. Hint: starts with M, Seriously, I wouldn’t have noticed unless someone pointed it out.

  12. Two_Twig

    That comment hurt me deep Rick, I was only joking about the nip :( *sniff*

    • GameCobra

      I donèt think it was about the nip: it was about Rev being Canadian.

      • Rick Griffin

        *spit take with no drink*

        • Rare Poster

          ^ This and the post above made me laugh.

          • GameCobra

            *wakes up the next morning*
            *checks his comment*

            *applies face to desk*

            I’m going to get a drink next time so i can emphasise my silliness more. >_>

        • Naylorfan90

          *blinks* How did you do that…

      • Ichiinu

        Umm… What do green or yellow leaves have to do with being Canadian?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          They’re not red!

        • GameCobra

          That’s exactly what i said to myself when i woke up after making that comment yesterday XD

          For that, i deserve to be hit by a flying squi~ *smack*

  13. Alex M.

    So, where’s Max?XD

    • SonictheHedgehog125

      Look at the previous comic and find out. XP

  14. Sperkle

    I totally know the feeling.

    Wow the maple leaf changed from green to gold/yellow

    • Mekyro

      Ja iz magik

    • Leafy

      Yea I totaly notice that too :O

    • Alex M.

      Maybe it change of color according to Res emotional state or Rick change it for some reason.

      • Rick Griffin

        Or maybe people would read the post below the comic that I sometimes put there

        • Alex M.

          “Rick change it for some reason”
          I had read the post below the comic.

        • Masterkev

          That would be an epic twist. If the maple leaf were to be a sort-of “Mood Charm” (like a mood ring). Where his emotions change the color of the tag. But thats just an idea…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You’re leakin’ awesome there, kid. You might want to get that looked at.

        • Sperkle

          I don’t mean to cause any problems I just thought it wad neat that it did.

          • Frank

            And your avatar seems to fit your post perfectly

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Spookeh avatar, Frank.

          • Frank

            Oh sorry. I’m out of colors (though if you want, think that I was out too long in the snow)

  15. Elwood Blutarsky

    If you bet your cookies that Miss Auburn was a dog, cat, two-headed giraffe, Time Lord, Res or anything/anyone other than a human you lose. Gambling is wrong huh.

  16. Lobogris

    Great, I like how this is going. Somehow the introduction of a new character leads to an interesting arc, like it happened with King.

  17. BlueAnubis

    Raise your hand if you called that. *hand up*
    Raise your other one if you want to give Res a hug. *other hand up*
    Raise another extremity if you want to hear the rest of Grape’s story. *begins hopping on one foot*
    Raise another extremity if you just lost the game.*other leg up.*
    Point and laugh at anyone who just fell on their butt.*whimper*

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Raise your gripping hand if you’re a Motie.

    • Naylorfan90

      *points and laughs* Oh man, that was hilarious! Not the falling on the butt bit, just the whole post.

  18. Pseudo Faux



    • Ichiinu

      makes you wonder who’s actually the writer, seeing as he won’t let Grape see what he was working on, and it’s not a fanfic according to Res…

      • xhunterko

        No, read carefully what Res says. If that was the case, Res wouldn’t be unsure of HIS writing.

        • Ichiinu

          Where are you getting he’s unsure of his writing? The “not very good” comment was about the burrito, if that’s what you’re referring to.

          • Celtiawindsinger

            Hmmm…indeed, but that is a point. While it appeared he was talking about the burrito, it suddenly occurs to me that there is a small chance he was actually talking about both what he’s writing and the burrito. If his owner is a perfectionist, it’s a slight possibility.

    • Frank

      I’m just a cat, life is a novel!
      I’m just a cat, I know that it’s horrible!
      Nobody cares cuz the writer is my mom!
      and the world is less embarassing than me!

      • Frank

        Come on, people, sing with me!

  19. Falcon01

    I have a terrible premonition…….

    • Argent Stonecutter

      … like a thousand fanfic writers suddenly discovering that they’re not canon…

      On the Internet, nobody can hear you scream. Thank goodness.

      • Falcon01

        no, one far far worse than that.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I think it would be awfully smashing if Res was ghostwriting Pridelands.

          • falcon01

            Yes..and now think about that a minute…Res is a pet.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            If you’re invoking Fridge Horror, you’re way too late.

            Remember the farm arc?

            Remember “I’m going to eat your innards!”

          • RockstarRaccoon

            I don’t see the fridge horror: please explain.

          • Falcon01

            oh, not that at all, its about talent and rights…

          • RockstarRaccoon

            Nope. Still don’t get it. Can we have a hint?

          • Falcon01

            ok…so, if a PET is in fact ghostwriting the pridelands saga…what rights does he/she have and happens to him/her if it that information gets out?

          • Frank

            Maybe it creates a legal precedent?

            Though if they have blogs, you’d think it would exist already

      • Naylorfan90

        Doth mine eyes lay upon a Star Wars reference?

  20. I Am...

    ….Madness. Perfectionist anything in power spells trouble for all!

    Epiphany: …!!O_O!! If the cat absolutely has to be perfect(especially w/ her writings), what if it’s the cat who does all the work for the novels and the owner takes all the credit?!?! DX

  21. rtlstien

    Grape’s mind has been blown away 0.0

    • A-coro

      Hey Grape, remember those times Peanut’s brain crashed? Yeah, it’s kinda like that.

      • GameCobra

        Unfortunately, Grape handles it alot better. See how she can still talk? =P

        • Celtiawindsinger

          That’s because Peanut needs to reboot his brain, Grape has a newer model that merely restarts the systems causing the problem, while keeping the rest running.

          Also, which reminds me, I need to get that new antivirus software…

  22. MYW

    Five bucks says Res writes the books for Miss Auburn. XD

    • Snowmon


    • gagi

      Dude, seriously?
      Though that would make an awesome arc.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      We only accept bets in Internets and Cookies.

    • I Am...

      100 Cannon’D Res writes. Sorry, I only give payments in Cannon’D. I suggest no one loses… ^^

    • Celtiawindsinger

      I’ll take that bet, if only because I think it’s too obvious for the author to do as far as a plot-twist. Bet’s off if Res writes “parts” of the books, deal?

  23. Snowmon

    I know that it might be obvious for everyone else, but is Res a boy or a girl?
    Wait… Res certainly isn’t a boy or a girl…
    WHAT I MEANT TO ASk WAS: “is Res male or female?”, of course…

    • Masterkev

      That is one good question . . . I do not see any “He, She, Guy, Girl, Male, Female”
      It seems as if Rick is saving Res’s gender as a surprise XD

      I have a question though, How do people know that his/her name is Res? In the recent comics, i haven’t seen one note of his/her’s name. Please post a link to show me his/her’s name.

      • Ichiinu

        See that little bit of writing Rick put underneath the comic? Read it.
        …Done reading it?
        Ta-Dah! Question answered :D
        As for the gender, I’m guessing male by the way Res acts, but that’s just speculation on my part :/

        • Leinad

          i was thinking female…. of course that might be because i know at least one female person that acts like that….


  24. LethalKitsuneWarrior

    Wow, I can totally sympatize with Rez. My parents always expect me to be perfect, and if I don’t do it right, they critisize me and do it again. My brother also takes advantage of this by being a total jerk and keeps shoving stuff I’m scared of into my face. Rick, I feel like you just took me and put me in this comic. Yet again, great work.

    • silverfang16

      You are not alone in this world.

  25. Kobrag

    Who want’s to bet that Rez is the real author?

    • silverfang16


    • Gavinfoxx



      Already got 9001 cookies on that

  26. Stravvy

    Huh, am I the only one who thinks it’s interesting Res refers to his owner AS an owner, rather than a parent?

    • Kingisawsome

      Have you read All the Kings men. It tells you that not all pets call their owners parents. It’s only reserved for the parent child relationships

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        King himself called Pete his owner during the “Dog Days of Summer.”

      • Snowmon

        I think that was exactly the point. It shows that Res and the owner are not very close. I still don’t call my stepdad “dad”, because our relationship is not that close… at least not yet.

        • LethalKitsuneWarrior

          I will NEVER call my stepdad ‘dad’. Heck, If it wasn’t a force of habit, I’d probably call my mom by her first name instead of mom if it was based on friendliness.

    • Rick Griffin

      I am PRETTY SURE I never had the pets call their owners their parents . . . just refer to them as ‘mom’ or ‘dad’

      • zeroslash
        • WingedWolfGirl

          Grape Could be referring to His/her(?) REAL parents, the cats that bore him/her.

        • Ada

          “Parents or owners” Yeah, gonna go with that as a reference to actual parents, because otherwise Grape is saying the same thing twice.

        • Frank

          If Bino, Fido, and Joey can consider eachother brothers, I’m pretty sure we can have “parents” refer to biologicl parents

          • NykVerien

            I agree.

  27. Inu225

    Though I can’t say I know Res well enough as a character (I mean this is his 2nd appearance after all XP), I do find his personality very compelling to me. I think it’s because I can easily relate to him when interacting with fellow peers. I try to be act like a perfectionist but when it comes to talking to people I get tongue tied. I have a generalized idea of what I want to convey but trying to put that into words is difficult for me. I’m always afraid I might say something stupid and offensive that I hardly talk in public at all.
    Personally I can totally understand what Res is going though when faced with issues like that. That makes three characters in HP! I can relate to. Gosh! What’s with you Rick and creating characters I like?


      ……. I concur.

  28. chrisQ

    …so, is Res the one who wrote all the pridelands stories, then ?…

    • Frank

      Tune in tomorrow, same housepets time, same housepets channel!


      That would be VERY interesting, because Res would be writing the stories, and his….or her :/ owners would be taking the credit because THEY’RE MEAN, and then Grape would find out, but not tell anyone because she likes the Pridelands books.
      That would make this a PARTICULARLY interesting arc.

  29. NexusWulf

    eeehh now ish Grapes Brain borked o.o i presume

  30. Firewolf

    You know, this situation with chatter happens to me everyday, literally. I finally decide to just stop talking (like Res), and then people think I’m wierd or something…anyways, Res is my new fav character! =D

    (P.S. How does one respond to a “nom” or glomp”?)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      (depends on whether you appreciate getting nommed… a tickle is usually an effective defense if not)

    • Frank

      I’d say there are only two respones: freak out, or be flattered. There is no in between.

      • Celtiawindsinger

        Or be indifferent, so there is an in between.

        Be indifferent, and get a rake.

  31. Rayne

    I still see another use for res, However that completly depend on how old He/She is

    I NEEED pronouns

    • Frank

      Spivak says you can use ‘e

  32. Rayne


    Is that a person behind the cat ina Fursuit. It looks to big to be a cot and it seems to be wearing something pink.
    Or is it too cats standing on top each other It could be that too

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You mean the posters?

    • Tara

      I think you’re talking about the yellow cat that’s standing in the front of the line on a box and the pink cat behind it.

      Perhaps you should go to your graphics card settings and adjust the brightness or change your screen resolution – because I see it perfectly fine. o.0

      • Argent Stonecutter

        That’s not pink, it’s salmon.

        Which is an ironic color for a cat.

      • Rayne

        No I see the cat getting on autograph fine.
        I’m talking about the “thing behind it”
        I’m thinking they may be dogs with crap disguise

    • Frank

      I’m going to go with “it’s perspective” After all, perspective is an evil queen

  33. Argent Stonecutter

    This is me being surprised nobody’s done a blue-screen grape avatar yet.

  34. Weebz

    For any of the anime/manga fans out there … does Res seem incredibly similar to Crona from Soul Eater…? (“I don’t know how to deal with this …”)

    • Whitekitsune

      And the fact that no one knows for certain what gender Res is only adds to the uncanny similarity. All that’s left is for some black circuited computer program to- nah, that’d be stretching it.

      • Leinad

        watch, Rick is hiding away in his Housepets!-cave, reading these comments and shouting “Curses! Now what plot twist will I think up?”

  35. Tara

    Aw, I bet Miss Auburn is going to be a complete jerk with a huge ego that forces her cat to write the books so she can take credit for them.

    …Or at least somewhere along those lines.

    I have a weird feeling that perhaps he writes them because pets can’t publish books or something.

    • xhunterko

      I’m gonna bet against that. IF anything, it’s a partnership. And besides, if she was a jerk, what jerk would spend 12+ hours signing autographs FOR her pet?

      • Indagare

        Because she wants fame, power, and glory? It’d be like some sports star actually having a double do all the work on the field, but then be the one to actually do the autograph signings and interviews and such while the double sat quietly in a corner somewhere without anyone knowing that the double was the one actually pulling off the spectacular plays and the person doing the signing couldn’t play the sport at all.

        Sure, most folks might think this would be a problem, but if you’re *that* desperate for fame, it’s a very small thing to do. It’d be the equivalent of ‘having’ to eat two desserts because you forced your twin to eat two helpings of something nasty for dinner.

  36. Draco_2k

    What a twist!

    • KimbaWLion

      *Directed by M. Night Shyamalan

      • Argent Stonecutter

        … and the double-twist at the end is that Miss Auburn is a cat in a human suit…

        Or she’s Pete’s new avatar…

        • CalaverX11

          OR OR OR Miss Auburn IS Res, and was made Res BY Pete, and Pete took Miss Auburn’s place…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oooh, twist that screw tighter…

          • MrMutt

            er… brain broke.

            Darn it. I keep having to replace that.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            This is why you should always use a torque wrench when putting the screws to people’s brains.

        • silverfang16

          I don’t think so, playing as anything but a cat or dog seems to be against the rules.

  37. Copycat

    I know someone has probably suggested this before.. but I’m guessing this Res guy is the actual writer of Pridelands, and that his owner just puts her name on it..

    • Copycat

      Yeah.. like two comments up.. idiot.

  38. Riasiru

    Thus the reason I keep my internet and real life separate… The weirdos!… No offence to my fan base… Just the people who send e-mail of their crotches… That… That needs to stop.

  39. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Herp derp.

  40. Jim

    Man that line’s moving fast. 3 hours for 700 people? Jeez.

    I thought she was doing autographs and getting pictures taken as well.


    I can’t believe I bet on (Him?) being the actual writer, That’s 9001 cookies I’m never getting back.

  42. Tigerbitten

    I know those are stripes, but to me they look like our new cat pal hasn’t had a good nights sleep in ages. Can cats/dogs get bags under their eyes????

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s not the most common tabby marking, but some do have stripes like that.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      We have a longhair tabby who has that kind of “sad cat” face, though the stripes aren’t as distinct as Res’s.

  43. Salenstormwing

    He should go hang out with the Milton ferrets. They’ll get along GREAT!

  44. Kitch

    Res is the real writer of the Pridelands series. I’m calling it.

    • White Pony

      Agree with you that Res is the real writer of the Pridelands and Grape is going to go fangirl on him… or insist that she be written into the next story.

    • Salenstormwing

      I was thinking that on Wednesday. So yeah, glad I’m the not only one who thinks this…

  45. Oren Otter

    I thought maybe it was a mood tag.

  46. Duskyo

    I saw that twist coming! XD
    Oh ya, in panel 2, Res doesn’t have a tag. I’m just sayin’…

  47. Rocket Knight boy

    Res…the ‘KING’ of cats?

  48. garbud

    did any one else see how scard he was when he said how is owner is?

  49. Max Wolfe

    Does anyone find it as foreshadowing with the “Whoodathunkit” coffee label there towards the author of Pridelands?

  50. Rocket Knight boy

    BTW the timidness of res is hilarious…so jumpy lol Zach has some competition

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Res totally needs to get together with Zach…

      And go for a walk in the woods…

      Visit an ancient temple…

      • Naylorfan90

        And unleash…a Hippogryph!

        …a unicorn? Hydra? Manticore? Pegasus?

  51. Whitekitsune

    It always gets taken one step farther with you people, doesn’t it? Heheh, not that I’m complaining, it’s fun to see how close your predictions get to the truth. On another note, yay Res!

    • xhunterko

      And then Rick throws a curveball.

  52. Kage

    So don’t normally comment on Housepets, love the comic to death and such.

    Res reminds me of someone with Asperger’s Syndrome. Love the work Rick!

    • Rayne


      I take that as a complement

  53. Shady Kitsune

    I like how Rick used a smaller font to give a “shy” effect to his speech.
    Or her. “Res” sounds like a gender neutral name.

  54. Naylorfan90

    Oh boy…do I know how Res feels here…*sighs* My mom was a big perfection nut. She’d have me do something as small as bring the groceries in again if I didn’t bring them in how she wanted. She’s mellowed out a bit over the years, but…yeah…I also know how Res feels about writing. I’m a writer myself, so I too experience that disconnect between how my characters speak, and how I speak…

  55. Osric

    I like how his shyness and mousy voice are illustrated with smaller text in his speech bubbles. It’s the small things (literally, in this case).

  56. FerreTrip

    That poor Maine Coon (if I’m right in guessing the breed). Also unsure as to Res’ gender.

    Res can remind me of me sometimes with the social skills…>_>;

    And, wait, s/he was doing fanfiction of his/her own owner’s work? Iiiiinteresting…X3;

    • xhunterko

      Res: “Hey m-mom? H-hows this? O-okay maybe how b-bout this one? No? B-but it’s g-good r-right? R-right?”

  57. CalaverX11

    Wait…retconning what? Why? What did I miss?

  58. Elwood Blutarsky

    I’ve got it, Res’ tag is painted with DuPont Chromalusion paint. Chromalusion changes colors depending on what angle you look at it, it really is green from one angle but gold or purple from another. Of course it costs an arm and a leg but seeing as how Res’ owner likely writes a book series whose popularity is on par with Twilight she can afford it.

    (and for the record, yes I am joking although that paint is real)

    • WingedWolfGirl

      That’s even more awesome than the “mood tag” idea suggested above!

      • Leinad

        but how did it go back in time and change? if you look, it’s always been that yellow-gold color.

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          He used a DeLorean painted with Chromalusion

  59. Aishling

    Wow, the whole convo just here was really interesting… really!

  60. Xae

    1′ OR ‘1′=’1

  61. Hopper2004

    I totally guessed it!!

  62. Tacomaster171

    Res is a guy?!? and i fell sorry for her/him…..Ah i dont know! which is it?

  63. Alazar Ramir

    It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all – that works well in the world of fiction. Ha ha. Grape’s face is brill.

  64. NykVerien

    Say it with me.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Foreshadowing: your key to quality literature.

      • Rayne

        I don’t like foreshadowing that much.

        I don’t want the book or whatever basically telling what happens next.

        (Yes I know they are hints but they usually aren’t to hard to figure out)

  65. shyannethefox

    aw poor Res! *gives him a hug* :D

  66. xhunterko

    *gives Res a hug*
    Come on everybody!

    • dalonewolf25

      *hugs Res*

      • Leinad

        Group hug! *hugs


          Umm, I’ll just walk away slowly

  67. Calbeck

    I think this is possibly the most awkward introduction between fan and pro that could EVER POSSIBLY HAPPEN.

    Note that I consider the notion of talking cats having a fanbase for a human writer to fall under the category of “possible”.

  68. CaptainPea


    • Leinad


      • Masterkev

        Don’t ask . . . I got no idea what he just said there O_O

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Res woke up on the wrong side of the bed and missed buying a ticket for the zombie zeppelin ride.

  69. Pogiforce

    Grape’s face at discovering Miss Auburn is a social nazi. XD

    Peanut warned her.

  70. FinalSilence

    Okay, Lots Has Been Revealed Now! Now We’re Just Betting On Who Peanut Got For Secret Santa! (Please Tell Us Rick!) I’m Feeling Too Lazy To Tally Up The Current Bets!

    • dalonewolf25

      I bet a Jackal that Bino’s Peanut’s Secret Santa (PSS).


      I think the pot is at 20,030 cookies, There’s still hope for me to win >:3


        Oops, wan’t trolling anyone there

    • Frank

      I’m going to quit while I’m ahead

  71. The derp

    And then we find out Res is the actual author and that the owner is just profiting…
    perfect WAT moment…

    • dalonewolf25

      Ey, whatsamatter with them figurimatizing and guesstimating the plot of this evergoing adventure?

    • Gavinfoxx

      I predict this too!

  72. Zanzawolf

    Aww poor Res I know her plight quite well when it comes to socializing. I feel even worse for her now that we know she’s the cat of that Pridelands author. I kind of had a feeling she was connected to the author in some way.

  73. crazyBalto

    well, Max hope that Res is female or you gonna have another EX again! XP

    • Masterkev

      Ooooo . . . That’d be a strange turn of events! O_O

  74. FurryNerd

    I have the same troubles. Though I usually cover it up with something spontantous and silly just to make people laugh. xP

  75. madmoney

    didnt he or she waring a green coler

  76. Housepetsfan15

    And the cats out of the bag……no pun intended.

  77. silverfang16

    Aww, Res and Peanut would get along so well. They both have issues about their writing.

  78. WingedWolfGirl

    NEW worst moment?
    phhf, I have a Bunch of worst moments :S

    • dalonewolf25

      But, then which was the first one?

  79. WyldKAT

    OH MAN I HAVEN’T COMMENTED IN FOREVER but I gotta say that I just redesigned my character and now seeing Res the designs are SUPER SIMILAR and I find it kind of spooky.

  80. TobiasKelmandia

    Oh dear, but I love Res. He’s so adorable.

  81. Russiarules1

    I knew it, I just knew it! I knew it…
    Wait, wasn’t Res’ tag color green or something?

    *Sits in a corner twitching* I… KNEW IT….

    ( Second or third comment without mentioning Capitalism or some other system crap :D )

  82. anthroguy101

    Res’s personality and my own are so closely related that it’s scary.

  83. Slash0mega

    meh, i was close, the author, the author’s cat.

  84. MistingWolf

    Wasn’t his leaf green in the last strip…?

  85. Velo

    I guess no-one else noticed Grape’s scarf turning invisible. :p

    • Rick Griffin

      Yes because it’s impossible that she put it down in the intervening three hours

      • Velo

        I don’t think she’d put it down on the floor, seeing how it’s not on the table nor is it in either hand.

        • Mukavich

          It could be that the collar acts like a bag of holding. They keep all sorts of things in their collars anyway, like wallets and money and stuff. Or, she could have set it on a chair. She is standing next to a table, after all.

      • Foxstar


        Otherwise nitpickers are summoned.

        • GameCobra

          How can you type with fingers made of feathers?!?

          • Gingly

            Easy, he/she just types using the hunt-and-peck metho- *smacked*

    • Frank

      That would be awesome! It would be like a leash, except that it keeps you snuggly and you don’t know where it’s tied to!

  86. Khan

    I’m still missing pet-geckos and monitor lizards in this comic >.>

    anyway, poor kitty… I hate people that treat their pets like that

  87. Hoheh

    I kinda saw this coming, but was certain there would be a curveball plot point I missed.

  88. chaosfox

    hahaha ocquard moment classic social bs >3

  89. fzzymunky

    spoiler alert! i bet the cats a ghost writer. i’m such a jerk, i know, yet i regret nothing!

    • The derp


      • FreakazoidVocaloid

        Now watch him nail us with another twist. o.O

  90. Fuzzypaws

    Man so many stupid people populating the comments. Well, at least it’s better than infest some comics. How do you put up with it, Rick?

    • JB

      Yes, some are silly. I see people pointing out (which may or may not be) faults of the stripe like colour, missing items, structure of body, etc. Knowing Rick he’s doing his best.

    • Frank

      Maybe we could put one of those “are you really awake” tests, like the folks at Google have

  91. HI

    I kept checking on this comic because of the romance option between Peanut and Grape, but no that Rick had basically killed of that couple, I”m kinda losing interest.

    • Foxstar

      Deal with it.

  92. RockstarRaccoon
    • RockstarRaccoon


      • Masterkev

        That is one good Picture – that resembles him. Good job :D

    • Hoheh


  93. Half-moon

    look on the bright side grape your talking to miss Auburns cat! :D

  94. James

    I just love seeing the Coffee Shop’s name! XD

  95. madmoney

    the last comic put res’s coller color to yellow

  96. AvanWolf

    Eh, boy am I late to the party (Been sick the last few days)

    Anyways, I sense that a pedestal has just been pulverized.

    • Hoheh

      You’re probably dead-on. I feel for Grape and disappointment, plus Res.

    • gaboris

      Yeah same here man, I got a nice fever myself and spent the last few days in bed as well. XP
      Just keep it up, the new strips make our day at least right? :D

  97. JB

    Viewing Res shows a bit of reflection of my life. Being apologetic and overly sensitive because you think you said something that might set off a nuclear bomb. Go Res, you can pull it together. Hey, Grape might get a chance to enjoy cake with author.

  98. gaboris

    Okay I don’ know why I got surprised at the last panel, I saw way bigger “DUN-Dunn-dunnn” moments here to begin with, but still with Grapes face I just couldn’t take it that easily. XD
    I don’ know what’s the ppls problem with things like “This should be of this color” or “This is missing now” in my opinion the story is great, they always make my day and I’m fine with that… course that may just be me. XP

  99. NexusWulf

    Anyone out for some *OH SNAP* juice ?

  100. Sansash

    Hey that security guard in panel 7 looks suspiciously like a Stan Lee cameo.

    Or maybe Frank Thomas or Ollie Johnson. ; P

  101. Hoheh

    Grape’s going to get an “I Told You So” speech from Peanut. To be fair, he did.

  102. J.J.

    OMG! Res! You mean you’re owner is ….

    Res: “YES! YES!!! I’m owned by Marline Perkins! NO ‘Wild Kingdom’ reruns… Pleasssssse!!!”

  103. meawzerz

    sounds like res has aspergers syndrome too me. (like me =3)

  104. meawzerz

    crap >.< wait im bad with names i donmt tink res is the gray tabby cat in this strip? :/ enyway im talking about the gray tabby cat in this strip… autisum and dislexia are a deadly combao :<

  105. .:AventGard:.

    I don’t know which was more expected… Res’s (?) confession or Grapes’ violent reaction.

    • .:AventGard:.

      Dang it…this was meant for the next page stupid iPod…

  106. madmoney

    lov it
