Oooh Close up view of Peanut!!!:D
Alt Text: “AKA Peanut Glam Shots”
They are lying down, right?
I beleive so.
I bet every image on this strip will become avatars
And then some.
Especially among the shippers.
OMG, Is so cuuuuteeeeee.
This reminds me the scene while Peanut and Grape were dancing an saying something like “We are visiting uncle Reuben!”. :]
I though the same at first
It reminds me as well ,because it’s a little similar to it.
Oh my god, I Lolled so hard I think I woke everyone up!
I 5 that
7th that wait i mean 6th that
I’ll 6 to your 7 or 7 to your 6!!
That’s probably enough. x3
D’awwww sooo cute!
Peanut’s cuteness level critical! Calling Grape joy-kill skills!
CUTENESS HAS REACHED CRITICAL MASS!
OH MY G- *KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!*
Best close up ever!
Grape is just jealous
Come on Grape, you know better. Anything for a tummy rub!
Grape would prefer a good hard scratch behind the ears x3
I think netherwolf might be right. I think she would prefer behind her ears. Granted I’m not sure if they count, but I heard very few cats like getting touched on their stomachs. Areas around it, like the sides (granted that they know you) is fair game though.
My cat loves freakin’ loves getting his belly scratched. If anybody looks at him for a sufficiently long amount of time, he plops right over and waits for somebody to scratch his belly.
I didn’t say all cats dislike it. I know my family’s cat doesn’t mind it, but I don’t think she ‘likes’ it. I think with her it’s situational since she extends the claws on one paw each time we try, the only exception is when she wants attention and lays down on the keyboard. XD
And thus ends our little foray into the off-topic world of cat psychology. Or whatever. *peers*
It’s what they get used to. I got tired of having cats that turned into balls of claws when you tried to rub their tummies, so when we got new kittens I made sure to pet them a lot when they were little and now all three of the boys will just roll over and beg for tummy rubs when you get close. It’s mega cute.
you brainwashed them !
I prefer the term “domesticated”.
hahaha and now they will do your bidding
Not really, they’re still cats.
One will only let anyone approach him in about four or five locations in the house. He wants to be petted, he stations himself there and waits for someone to come along. If we want to catch him, we have to go to one of those spots.
One is totally affectionate-aggressive. He’ll follow you everywhere to get attention.
And the third has some kind of odd schedule. When he’s not in the mood to be petted he doesn’t act differently… until you try and pet him, then he’ll use amazing Neo-in-The-Matrix Ninja moves to avoid contact.
I can’t tell if my cats like it or not. They practically beg for their belly to be rubbed but when I do they dig their claws into my hand and try to eat it.
It’s bloody adorable of course, but it hurts. It really REALLY hurts.
Love hurts :3
In my life, i never met a cat that doesn’t like to jump onto someone’s lap. They aren’t always interested at first but eventually i find they will, especially when you’re watching TV or on the PC all day.
and Cats love being petted behind the ears. What’s funny about it is one of my current cats has apparantly grown to loving being petted behind the ears so much he resorts to headbutting my chin sometimes when i’m asleep. (beard)
I find the third panel oddly hilarious.
Because it reminds you of this?
There’s nothing odd with that!
Peanut dancing was the first thing that came to my mind before I saw the last panel.
They’ll all make convenient avatars!
Oh God Peanut’s adorable
20 bucks says that the first 5 panels will become avvies in the next 24 hours
That’s a junk bet man
You owe me 20 bucks Rick, the Cosmic Nerds said so.
Buck Rogers, Buck Williams, Buck Grangerford…
Or perhaps me?
Wait, does that mean that if any one of them does not become an avatar, you will be mailing $20 bills to everyone here?
hheehehe and Rick said it was a junk bet, silly silly Rick
I don’t think there are that many people named Buck though! 0_0
I said bills. Bills. Or Williams if you will
My names William. I get money
Technically you said $20 bills, which translates to twenty DOLLAR BILLS. Ha, I beat you with knowledge! All thanks to the books at my local library.
While it is indeed junk bet i just CAN’T let such awesome avatars to slip away
This reminds me of my sister’s dog, Max (RIP) and when my sister used to tickle me… from a meter away.
Dogs and their petting obsessions.
Also closeups! <3
Pet a dog right and they’re your friend forever.
Treats are forever+1.
But don’t quote me on that.
My favorites are the second and fourth panel!
Prefer the third and fifth ones
Don’t know about ya all but i prefer all of them xD
I agree. I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw the ending tho.
I would have seconded and fourthed that motion at the same time, but I was beaten to the punch, it seems.
So… what they said. ^_^
You know? the weird thing is, that, doesn’t matter how much you love the hylarious peanut, de neutral face of grape when she says that it’s just so adorable!!!
Dunno. It scared me, to be honest. We’ve seen Peanut almost as close before ( http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/11/12/based-on-a-true-story/ ) but to see Grape made me go “Wait, that’s what she really looks like?”
me either i thought grape’s face was cute to
well, someone else just copy this images for your gravatar, forums and other acounts? or just me?
Man, Peanut looks absolutely hilarious, and cute, in all the panels, especially the second panel.
I just realized something: they’re all lying on the carpet, aren’t they?
I tough they’r lying on the bed?
Rick! I BOW to Your MASTERPIECE!
lol i fail. i thought they were standing until i read this. xD
I honestly thought they were all standing up…guess the color of the background threw me off.
If you get thrown off, you can always pick yourself back up
Heh fanboys rejoice it’s a closeup strip! X)
Real cute, I needed this for the day so thx and nice job Rick.
THE CAMERA LENS IS TOO CLOSE.
…..or are they not close enough? think about it *slowly fades away*
And we have our first customer in the Avatar Shop. Who will be next?
Wait, it’s not of the first four panels?
It was first five panels and i am the first
Yeah I think the sixth panel was more my thing.
It sure is
Now I’m wondering what Peanut is staring at so intently in the first panel.
Probably talking till his Mom showed up.
Maby he was watching TV,when Ms.Sandwich surprised him with a tummy rub
,which is great btw.
Tummy Rubs are underrated!
you lie sir! you lie!
Not really, I think that no matter how high you rate tummy rubs, you still haven’t rated them high enough.
well said sir *tips his controller to you*
My dog always seemed to want those at the most random times…
I love Peanut… it’s so cute
Thank you for all the exploitable images! >:3
The rating of this comic is PG; your comments should not exceed that rating.
agreed *squeeees* X3
Work it, Peanut, work the camera.
Also Does anyone else thing Grape’s head is shaped oddly… almost kangaroo-ish in panels 6 and 7?
At least two of us do. I’m guessing Rick doesn’t have as much experience drawing detailed cat muzzles as he does drawing kangaroos.
I noticed that, too, though I also spent a little time trying to figure out what Grape was doing with her paws before I realized that they must be lying down. Still, with nothing to indicate that aside from context (if Peanut’s getting a tummy rub, he’s most likely lying down), it felt a little awkward.
But now I wanna give them both tummy rubs.
And here I was expecting more Spot(superdog).
Guess it was kinda naive of me to expect my wish to be heed before the hundreds of fanboys/girls/in-between complaining.
Funny strip though.
Did’t you read last comics title? it suggested the end of the Arc.
Next, Grape lying in the sun =D
OMG It burns D:
No, asleep in the sun coming through a window
LOVE all of the Peanut expressions haha! Especially the 2nd and 3rd ones
Okay, I’ll say it. Peanut’s l’il fangs in the second panel are ADORABLE.
i wonder what will it be on Grape’s face when scratching her chin and neck X3~
… and all the way down the back. I wonder if you can make her fall over by petting her. We had a cat like that. Also mega-cute.
That sounds adorable!
pet pet scratch scratch HARDER OK pet pet SCRATCH SCRATCH …
Bump head against hand … *more*
Yes! We’ve got to have a strip like that!
Heh my friend has a cat like that.
aww I love peanut in panel 2, it is epic. As for the avatar’s, yeah, thats a given.
……and soon we’re going to see Peanut avatars on everyone……stating with me!
But I like my Keene avi too much
ok it seems that i am second one that made avatar out of here
Two down, three to go
I go against the group. I will never make an avatar of one of the animals.
Why not ?
……because he’s a rondom geek?
Back on topic.
but as a quick end-note, Shuma Jindivi’s reason is correct.
Well them animals are cute and fluffy, the kind that makes even a grown guy like me to soften like a pillow (ok i just couldn’t think of anything else). But i just guess that Brent here is a bit afraid not to be called a furry? i am probably wrong but that is all i can think a.t.m.
A comic about the escapades of sapient, humanoid animals is not necessarily furry-exclusive. …Though it helps, I’m sure.
I mean, we know there are readers who are not furry, but how many furries are not readers?
I prefer to go avi free- the birthday suit of the internet.
Peanut is soooo adorable!
Hahaha, Peanut! I love you so much! x3
Does Grape have any weak points of scratching? I would like to see Grape does some faces like that. xP
Panel 3 is my favorite
Work it baby, the camera loves you! XD
And that leaves you with how many left?
If it wasn’t for class C I’d have no class at all.
he doesn’t reward them from his personal sash.
Grape’s just jealous that she’s not getting any.
Of course, all of my cats bite my hand when I try to scritch their tummy.
Mine hooks onto the hand, extends her pinky, and then proceeds to bite.
It’s weird, but such manners!
Grape’s just jealous. She could be enjoying that, too. ;3
Is it just me, or does Grape kinda look like a kangaroo? The ears and shape of the muzzle don’t look right to me.
We just don’t see her side-on like that much.
I just find it wierd that he’s getting his belly rubbed …while standing?… aaaaaaannnnnndddd grapes muzzle looks like one from a camel. sorry but It’s just stuck in my head. cute otherwise though.
He’s lying on the carpet. Lying like a dog
Suppress that dormouse!
Leave the mouse alone!
`I’m glad I’ve seen that done,’ thought Alice. `I’ve so often read in the newspapers, at the end of trials, “There was some attempts at applause, which was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court,” and I never understood what it meant till now.’
This is great!
the shape of grape’s muzzle here makes me think camel instead of cat…
favorite has to be the fifth panel i laughed so hard at it and grape’s face in the next one
Tummy rubs FTW! :}
Sooooo many avatar potentials.
Your current Avatar suits your comment so well XD
I read that when cats roll over in front of humans, they’re saying, “I trust you so much that I’ll show you my vulnerable side.” But for most cats, the trust does not extend so far that they won’t take a tummy rub as attack and betrayal.
That makes scence
So many icon-able pics. So many happy people will love today’s comic.
Collection of epic faces..
Is it just me or does grape look kinda weird here? Sort of looks like the roos in the zoo.
Well, we don’t see her in full profile very often
That must be it.
We just don’t see character faces from the side usually.
Oh, belly-scratches X3 And it’s kinda true–a lot of cats don’t take to belly itches as dogs do. Most of the time when I do it, they try to grab my hand and nom it.
After reading the other comments…I do think that the first five panels give the impression of a weird photo-shoot…So far as the last panel I could imagine Mrs. Snadwich saying, “Aw…Grape don’t jealous you will get some loving next…”….Though I could most likely be wrong…In all this is a very [sqeal] cute strip….(the squeal was for comedic effect)…By the way, when I metioned “loving” it was meant as a southern equivelent of “attention”…Not to be mistook for an inappropriate meaning….Sorry just felt that I had to clarify that…
Thanks…There are typos that I don’t always notice…
We like you anyway.
Panel 9: Grape getting scritched in turn and making funny faces trying to act cool.
i HOPE that’ll be the next strip.. please make it happen Rick ! X3
Pretty please, Rick! Pretty please!
Sure would be awesome to see it.Maby someone can do a fanart on this title.
Alas, it’s a one-off, but who knows what he might spring on us later.
Cumulative DAYS of my life have been whiled away gently stroking a cat on my lap.
Grape is a cat.
IT. HAS. TO HAPPEN.
Actually it’s probably a cumulative week or two.
My point stands.
Epic expressions. reminds me I still need to work on some of mine XD
Glam portfolio FTW XD
Grape is just Jelous
Epic face, epic face, epic face, epic face…
1 Word: LOL
That whole comment was more than 1 word.
Well, AT LEAST I DON’T PLAY GANG GARRISON
Seriously? I can’t even believe you still remember that xD
Best Housepets ever. |3 *drool, wishes he could +fav* Peanut!
Grapes mouth looks different in the last three panels
We want a pitcher, not a belly itcher, but we will are willing to compromise.
Awww, Peanut is so cute.
Now bring back the wolves!
Wait. Are they on the floor? What’s with Grape’s hands erm paws er. I DON’T KNOW! D:
Yes they are on the carpet and Grape just lays aside (sorry if there is any typo), looking at Peanut
As adorable as this is, could have used more shading to show they’re on the floor. Otherwise: EPIC D’AWWW.
Peanut being adorable. This is good.
ahhh grape looks drawn so similar to the kangaroos this comic, rick must have them on the mind
Art style… changing!
I don’t… think so…
YEAH! I can’t wait till the next comic.
Cuz seriously i have nothing else to do.
SO AND NEITHER DO I!
I have more important things to do, doesn’t mean I would rather do them than update.
:’D peanut looks adorable X’3
I hope this next comic has something to do with setting the clocks ahead.
Considering that’s what we’re supposed to do tomorrow.
I haven’t had to keep track of time changes manually for 20 years. That’s what computers are for.
Except when they change the rules and I’ve got to make sure a whole division’s computers have an updated timezone file.
You know… I just thought about how there hasn’t been any new story arcs posted under the calender for forever. So i scrolled up the page (it took freaking FOREVER) and looked and found new arcs posted.
Btw, how the heck do u do da little face thing?
I just know i’m gonna b up ALL night on my computer waiting for da update.-.- *sigh* Whatever.
Thanks, its usefully for me.
Drn. no new 1 yt.
that comes tonight.
Comic only updates on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
and certain holidays.
What time though? I must know exactly!
12:00 AM in the US Central time zone, so adjust accordingly.
Is it just me or is it kind of odd seeing those two laying on the crapet like that?
Because real pets do it all the time, it shouldn’t be odd looking behaviour for these two, but still…
*kicks the typo monster into the pit of grammatical correction*
This. Is. Grammaaar?
And then the song Street Smart from Oliver and Company gets stuck in my head because of Peanut’s expressions. Seriously, it looks like he’s about to start singing it any minute now
I’ve been struggling to remember the name of that movie for days.
And this isn’t actually a rare occurrence.
This just screams “Oh! Exploitable!”
Every panel makes me smile
but the whole strip makes me laugh.
Peanut steals the show! XD Also, I had thought Grape was doing her oracle impression or something. But they’re just on the floor/bed/debatable location of the horizontal persuasion.
Thank yooouuuu! ^_^
check it out bro
