    • xhunterko

      We are all such dorks. Commenting on a comic strip on christmas morning. Gosh.

      • Silent Kitsune

        But its the best comic EVER! :D

        • Quote

        • Masterkev

          Correct! You win the jackpot of ~
          *checks paper*
          0 cookies . . . Who ate all the cookies?!

          • Quote

            i blame the racoons

          • Tha Housedog

            Stupid raccoons! *Shakes fist angrily*

          • Frank

            See? This is why you grab your cookies as soon as the conditions are met! You don’t wait for the bookie to hand them too you, because he’s actually a racoon!

          • Rocket Knight boy


      • Profesor Rod

        I’m here sharing it with family and friends :P

  10. Quote

    so THAT’S the Sandwich’s alarm clock

  11. dalonewolf25

    I lul’d at the hint given yesterday in the Alt-Text…

    Merry Christmas, Everyone!

  12. rtlstien

    Was still hoping for the mistletoe, but a hug is good too!

  13. Aristocles

    I am no longer sad.

  14. dalonewolf25

    “Hey Dad, Cold Paws!”

    That made my day…

  15. GameCobra

    It’s amazing how staying up to read yoru favourite series could actually have an impact on your life =P

    At least he’s dedicated <3

  16. Pokeblue

    Lol, nice, brings back some memories when my siblings and myself use to do that. You know I can’t make up my mind which seems sillier, Peanut reacting to that moment with a group hug, or Grape doing ‘cold paws’.

    Aside from that, Merry Christmas everyone!

  17. ReCreate

    I don’t get the last panel. What does “cold paws” mean?

    • Rick Griffin

      It means cold paws

      • Silent Kitsune

        Meh those are cold… >.<

      • ReCreate

        I knew somebody was going to say that. But i certainly didn’t expect it to be you. O.o

      • Profesor Rod

        Cold paws are colds :3

        • James Sitka

          Looking back on this comic, it would have been a great way for Rick to refrence Garfiled with the old, “Wet Nose in the Middle of the Back” trick.

      • Ekevoo

        Better than cold WHOLE BODY!
        But I did let the cat in under the blankets anyway. Who doesn’t want to be warm? <3

    • xhunterko

      Try this, dunk your hands in snow, or cold water. Then hug someone.

      • ReCreate


      • BlueAnubis

        No, see, you put your hands on either their face or their back after the water or snow for maximum effect.

        • xhunterko

          ^That. Or their neck, which is the best place.

    • Kyderra

      confirmed by comic artist, they are cold paws

  18. Russiarules1

    It is still early for saying this, but I don’t care (YOU PEOPLE WILL NEVER TAKE AWAY MY CHRISTMAS SPIRIT… well, the rest of it…)

    • Russiarules1

      Ok, now it is Christmas…
      By the way, someone wants some tamales, I had to many… ugh…

  19. Kingisawsome

    I’m the biggest fan Christmas ever had! Who can guess what movie that’s from? It’is one of my favorite Christmas movies that I watched tonight. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!!

  20. Argent Stonecutter

    Did not predict this.

    No Babylon Five Gardens.

  21. Argent Stonecutter

    I now predict Panel 8 grape avatars.

    • Silent Kitsune

      I predict panel 11 Peanut faces XD

      • Profesor Rod

        Oh my gosh! And where did you get your avatar? It’s so cute~

        • Silent Kitsune

          Umm I just found it with a fan fiction, took a while to find it

  22. BlueAnubis

    Merry [I]Christ[/I]mas everyone! May you receive your two front teeth, your hippopotomi, and your Official Red Ryder BB guns as you rock around the Christmas tree.

    • Quote

      hey, your only allowed one reference per senten- ahh screw it i dont care

    • Naylorfan90

      You, my good sir, are awesome.

  23. Sperkle

    YAY happy ending for xmas… its a good thing

    • Silent Kitsune

      What about New Years?

      • HonorèDerazey

        We will blow up Barbie Dolls with M-80’s for New Years. Lucky for me that my 7 girl cousins never play with their toys for long when they get them for Christmas.

        • Sperkle

          I so totally agree with you on blowing them up…. Its a fun childhood memory for me lol

  24. HonorèDerazey

    Why are there no other houses around the Sandwich’s house in panel 12? There would be some indication that there are other houses around theirs. It looks more so like their house is in another dimension. Maybe they built it over a stargate that’s triggered whenever a certain amount of joy is near?

    I know. This is a stupid subject… I’m just finding something to do while I wait to open my presents.

    • Frank

      They… uh… have a big yard?

    • Fokson

      Not everywhere has houses shoulder-to-shoulder. This looks more or less like an aerial of my own house, with it’s 1-acre yard.

      • HonorèDerazey

        But as we can clearly see in previous comic strips that the houses are pretty close together. Note that I said they are no INDICATIONS of there being other houses around it. We should see fences at least.

  25. Ramisisk

    Feliz navidad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!

    • dalonewolf25

      Feliz Navidad!

      • G1itch3D

        I wanna wish you a merry christmas!

        • Frank

          “With lots of presents to make you happy”!

          I don’t often say this, but that avatar is adorable. Where’s it from?

  26. Ramisisk

    ….well so wats goin on?

  27. Ramisisk

    cold paws means…. time to run in the snow!!!!….. but i never see real snow T.T

    • Krzeszny


      • Masterkev

        Probably cause he lives near the equator, or he just never goes outside in the winter time . . . my bet is on the equator theory though.

  28. Twilus

    Cold paws? Cold noses are worse!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      There are much worse ways to be woken by a cat but I shan’t elaborate lest your delicate sensibilities are offended.

  29. Ramisisk

    ….. but you not run with your nose…. creo?

  30. anon_omis

    How do we know Grape did the “cold paws”? Also the only reason I’m still up is because I’m used to falling asleep at 2:00 or later

    • anon_omis

      Oh never mind! Just noticed the “agh Grape!” Anyway merry Xmas

  31. Profesor Rod

    Christmas Group Hugs!!!


  32. T-Squared

    That was the most PERFECT ENDING to that arc!

  33. Davarion

    First time posting on this comic. Very nice way to end things. Although now I’m afraid the bond between Peanut and Grape will become less special D:

    Merry Christmas everyone

    • Silent Kitsune

      Merry Christmas!

      • John

        I need to know where you got that Avatar, And Merry Christmas


          He got it from a fanfic, Protip: Avoid fanfics like Chuck Norris.
          That’s just me tho, things just haen’t been the same since I read that Harry Potter fanfic.*Shudders*

  34. Jrogenshin

    Wow! A triple strip! The first in Rick’s Housepets! =D And Merry Christmas to all! ^-^

  35. anon_omis

    Great I’m not the only one awake at 1:30 am! My stupid neighbor decided that this would be the best time to shovel! Now I’ll never get to sleep!

  36. ZV

    Such a good comic, glad things worked out for Grape; and looks like Max got away with his comment. ;)

  37. gagi

    ooo rick thank you for this turning the arch around like this … it broke my heart seeing Grape sad, so was a really nice comic update .. arf

  38. WyldKAT

    Soooooo. Does this mean we’ll be seeing more of Res? :D

    • Quote

      “…before i have to catch a plane back home on Sunday?” remember? so i’d say we will see him, but not much of him

  39. Quote

    ah crap, i lost 100 cookies

    • Frank

      Hey, it’s Christmas! Want some of mine?

      • Quote

        it’s okay, i always keep a secret stash but thanks anyway

        • Quote

          but my secondary bet may still pull through


        I need cookies, nobody wants my internetz

        • Quote

          *gifts 200 cookies*

  40. Draco_2k


    And Merry Christmas, Rick!

  41. Leafy

    Aww that is heart warming and such :D love it.
    Merry Christmas everybody :3

    • Naylorfan90

      Merry Christmas!

      Also, Res pics unite!

      • Naylorfan90

        Gosh darn it! Everytime I comment on someone having a pic like mine, my gravatar disappears! Of all the rotten luck/timing…

        • Tha Housedog

          And nobody has a Gravatar like mine!

  42. kit nomara

    merry Christmas everyone!

  43. e

    don’t you just hate cold paw? and i wonder if there going to be a all the king’s men (prose) part 2?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      So many threads left hanging. I read an article a little while back about this being a problem of webcomics, because there’s never any need to ever close a thread because there’s never an end-of-the-book deadline looming.

    • Frank

      Closing All The King’s Men is being worked on, on the forums. The result will be posted here when they get done.

      • Tha Housedog

        There are about ten or so versions, each written by different people.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          So there isn’t one by Rick?

          • Silent Kitsune

            No he said he was done with it, so he let others try to finish it

          • Tha Housedog

            Nope. Each person that participated wrote parts two and three.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oh, Belgium!


        Forums? There’s forums?


          Nvm, I see the little tab now. Derp.

  44. Katagiri

    So lovely! I liked a lot!

  45. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Christmas this year was fun. ONWARDS TO NEW YEAR.


    But I’ll miss 2010… The best year of my life (So far) in which, among other things, I discovered this wonderful webcomic.

    Props to you, Rick. Happy Holidays everyone~

    • Krzeszny

      I’ll miss 2010 too. I became a furry in this year ;3 (15th of February) and I discovered this and 4 other great web comics.

  46. Quote

    Merry Christmas to all and to all one hell of a New Year’s!

  47. FarmMan1812

    And my cats woke me up the exact same way at like 5:00 in the morning, ON MY FACE!!!

  48. GameCobra

    Glad everything worked out for Grape and Max as well. I really love those two <3

    Merry Christmas Everyone from Canada =P

  49. Ada

    So much holiday d’aww, my good Rick.
    Merry Christmas and a happy new y- OMG peanut’s ears are adorable in the
    next to last panel!

  50. LupisLight

    I Love happy endings. Also, the conclusion to Res’ story arc reminds me of this:

    “Whenever there is a meeting, a parting is sure to to follow. But that parting need not last forever. Whether a parting is forever, or only for a short time, that is up to you.” – The Happy Mask Salesman, “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask”

    Oh, and cold paws? Awesome. I find that a cold wet nose works great as well. ^_^

    • Hopper2004

      I love that game but that guy is creepy..

      • Quote

        crap, that’s the second time one of my comments is awaiting moderation

        • Frank

          Forbidden words, too many links, or excessive HTML formatting?

          • Quote

            forbidden word, i think

        • Foxstar

          Be careful of what you post, otherwise you’ll find that happening often.

  51. Naylorfan90

    Merry Christmas everybody!

    *dances around, tossing yummy delicious fudge to everyone*

  52. crazyBalto

    Peanut made my day! xD

  53. Razuk

    Cold Paws? Sounds fun.

  54. Masterkev

    Ah Cold Paws. The Normal Tradition of Waking Someone Up – The most funnest but coldest of ways. Great job Peanut :D

  55. Myth

    D’awwwwww, this made my day! MERRY CHRISTMAS! :D

  56. Sirus


  57. FuRrY321

    If this wasn’t a Christmas-themed comic I’d be obliged to say this:

  58. Revan

    Merry Christmas Everyone!

    and a Happy New Years

  59. James

    Now I wonder if there will be a split view for when Grape and Res on the phone. Of course, I bet Grape would do most of the talking.

  60. John

    I need to know where Silent Kitsune got his Avatar please, And Merry Christmas to all

  61. KickahaOta

    It’s such a sweet story! *sobs* *randomly hugs someone*

    • Silent Kitsune

  73. keejerx

    Second-to-last panel FTW.

    Happy Nonspecific Holidays, everybody!

  74. Argent Stonecutter

        Ahem, “LOL!!!111!!ELEVELN!”



          • Foxstar


  75. JB

    Max is out off the jerk list. Grape earns a new friend. Peanut gets hugs. I heart a good ending. C: Merry Christmas.

  76. iHavezMyBirdo


    • Tha Housedog


  77. RennisTora

    Very touching, brings a tear to my eye.

  78. Ruffy

    Awwwww friends at christmas are the best

  79. Blaze

    on a completely unrelated note, Merry Christmas everyfur!


      omigod…..Woha that’s amazing…. Triple strip…. what could it mean…. so beautiful

      (Someone better get the reference)

  80. FerreTrip

    Awwww…! This is sweet! I hope Grape and Res become friends, then. :)

    And Merry Christmas, Housepets! readers!

  81. Hoheh

    Max and Grape have an awesome hug shot AND kiss shot. Surprisiiingly, no-one jumped on it. Eh, Peanut Butter and Grape Je[ly Sandwich hugs warms my heart. And make me a little hungry.

    • Hoheh

      Typos… warm*

      • Tha Housedog

        That’s because the majority of the fandom here likes Grape and Peanut more than Grape and Max. Myself included.

        • Silent Kitsune

          So do I! :3

  82. Fuzzypaws

    Panel 8 expression is awesome. Also that is kind of a mean but awesome way to be woken up. *giggles*

  83. Leinad

    I just wanna say… CALLED IT!
    i shoulda bet some cookies…

  84. Valrejn

    My cat’s been giving me the cold paws experience a lot lately too.

  85. Lacey Small

    My cat’s been giving me the cold paws experience a lot lately too.
