  1. Ryufire

    Now I want to jump in that pool lol!

    • rallyjr

      I second that emotion

      • huntersunday

        CAN I BRING A STRAW

        • Ryufire

          You could but it might be full of fur! :P

  2. rtlstien

    I want access to that pool!

  3. Daggy

    So THAT’S that cause of the war!

    • kurowolfe

      It’s completely different from what I’d thought, though with Max and Grape, anything’s possible =3

    • Argent Stonecutter

      We still don’t know why the cats attacked.

      • The Diet Poison

        True, i wonder if they attacked in revenge.

        But, i would like to know why they dont just make peace and go swimming in this hot day.

        I mean, wouldt it be cute if all dogs and cats would go swimming together? ^_^

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Or they were sleeping and someone touched their tummies. I know my cats attack when I do that!

          • The Diet Poison

            Realy?

            I’ve never had a cat for a pet, so it’s nice to know that I should never touch their tummies.
            ^_^

          • Tommyrazor

            I rubbed a cat’s tummy and it never attacked me. Though I did get attacked when I rubbed my dog’s tummy.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            They can be trained to attack gently, and even solicit tummy rubs, but when cats fight or attack larger pray raking the belly with hindclaws is a common tactic… so they have an instinctive defense against it.

          • Ilovehousepets

            My cat wasn’t a people person. It would always hide in this one corner. ;_;

      • LegendaryHero

        For the evulz

      • Daggy

        Clearly, the cats attacked because of their abnormal fear of water. So they used water in the attack.

      • Frank

        It was pre-emptive! 0700h will be remembered as an hour that will live to infamy!

  4. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    and what’s wrong with a pool filled with chocolate mousse? other than being deadly to dogs.

  5. sonic id furreh!!!

    chocolate mousse id rilly good >.>

    ai would go swimmin in dat :3

  6. Dissension

    Another case of cat aggression. *sadly shakes his head*

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      cats aren’t DAT aggressive… all da time >_>

      • SecretAgent000

        Only because they are incredibly lazy.

        • Vlad the Cat

          yep.

  7. IceKitsune

    lol those silly Ferrets what in the world will they fill their pool with next. So the cats started this war ok then.

    • Pokeblue

      Appears so.

      • rallyjr

        appearances can be deceiving

        • Tides

          True, and it’s logical to figure that the cats had some motivation to make the first attack.
          I’m currently amusing myself with the idea that Peanut accidentally did something to set this whole thing in motion…

  8. kurowolfe

    A leader in war always has his own hidden agendas =3
    And erk, I don’t fancy swimming in chocolate either… Not that I know how to swim anyway XD

  9. FenixWong951

    …dosnt animals die if they eat chocolate?

    • Rick Griffin

      We can be sure that if they intended to eat it, it’s imitation chocolate

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      not all animals.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      if they eat to much chocolate

    • Snowmon

      Chocolate can make many animals sick, but it’s not instantaneous poison to them. My relatives had a back sale once. One of the dogs ate several trays of brownies, all he did was throw them all back up and that might only be because he ate way too much. He lived.

  10. LegendaryHero

    But the dogs still control the pool. They (he) could swim in it and end everything. If that really is all there is to this war…

    • Rick Griffin

      Him swimming in the pool doesn’t end the war, he just wants to

      • SilverZeo

        Though why would an old cat lady have a pool? And isn’t chocolate just as bad for ferrets? Unless being rodents, or a close family to them, they can eat whatever they want?

      • LegendaryHero

        Nothing’s really stopping him. Sure there’s war all around the area, but it’s cool. He’s a wolf.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      nuh-uh, dey lost dat ground

      • LegendaryHero

        They just lost some of their buffer land.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          is der a difference o.o?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Yeh, the land is drawn really buff in this strip.

          • FuRrY321

            *facepalm*

          • Rick Griffin

            Well played, Argent, well played *clap*

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Woah clap-clap-clap-clap-clap cudos to you Argent

          • Frank

            ROFL!
            Why am I laughing so much? I knew someone was bound to make this joke sooner or later!

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            I was surprised I had to

          • gaboris

            Ummm… you say what now? Help the non english guy out here. O_o”

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            It is a family guy reference

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Off of saving private brian

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t you know? It’s traditional to call out when some character is buffer than usual!

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Is it really?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Just ask Rick!

          • Ilovehousepets

            Nice job Argent! :D

  11. SilverZeo

    Can’t say it not a reasonable war, swimming pools ARE awesome… though I do question how the Dogs can own, let alone rent, a house for their own purposes….

    • Indagare

      It probably has something to do with the Milton ferrets.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The good old boy’s clubhouse is like a shed, I thought.

      And the wolves’ house is really owned by the ferrets, so that’s OK.

      Right?

  12. Pokeblue

    So the cats started this war. Kinda funny when this was suppose to be only between Tiger and Bino.

    • Dissension

      Um. It was never said this was exclusively an issue between Bino and Tiger. *peers*

    • Argent Stonecutter

      We don’t know why the cats attacked. It could be retaliation.

  13. Thoth

    Flooded out? That sounds like more than water balloons (unless they started with one of the big ones). Why do I suspect that – if the cats had anything to do with the flood at all – it probably involved leaving a hose on or fiddling with a fire hydrant?

    • IceKitsune

      lol that’s most likely what they did.

      • FuRrY321

        “Hey guys, I just have to go out for a sec.”
        “Okay, but hurry back, we’re formulating a defense plan against the oncoming cat forces.”

        *KA-BLOOSH!*
        “What in the name of all that is chewy was that?!”

  14. Avansis

    So cats made the first strike and Max & Grape are their leaders? How come I’m not surprised at all.

    • IceKitsune

      I kind of wonder why they did it and who came up with the plan my self. I bet it was Max who came up with it.

      • rallyjr

        hold on a moment, thats just one side of the story

        • IceKitsune

          Yes very true the Dogs could have done something to make the Cats angry (most likely Bino if anybody) so I really shouldn’t be jumping to conclusions like that for all we know Rockstar Hawk might be lying.

          What I should have said is: If what we are being told is true I bet Max was the one that came up with the plan it seems like something he would come up with.

          • rallyjr

            ok i can agree with that, except Bino was asleep

          • IceKitsune

            Well I meant that Bino could have done something to Max (which is another reason to suspect that he might have done the attack) or another Cat at another time like maybe the day before and this is revenge or something.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Bino was asleep at noon, so he may have done something late at night the previous night.

  15. Luffy

    I would’ve used vanilla pudding instead. XD

  16. Vladimir Zharkov

    For the pets it would probably really hurt to get hit in the head with a water balloon or a water gun because the water would go right into their ears. :S

    • FuRrY321

      I didn’t think of that.
      Just last night, I had water stuck in my ear from swimming in my above-ground pool. It was extremely irritating, but thankfully it leaked out overnight.
      I can’t imagine how that would feel for a dog/cat/rabbit/chicken/etc.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        what chicken?

  17. anon_omis

    Seriously, whose side are the ferrets on?

    • Dissension

      They may be uninvolved.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        but one of their territories is involved(the wolves’ house)

        • anon_omis

          And the cats used one of there bombers

          • Dissension

            There’s been no mention of bombers. *peers*

          • Frank

            I think he was talking about whatever launched that huge water balloon

          • FuRrY321

            I just assumed that they just had a spare catapult that they used that was large enough to hold a water balloon that size.
            …What? I thought everybody had a spare catapult in their shed?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            A trebuchet would be more reliable for a payload that size.

          • anon_omis

            Still they would have borrowed it from the ferrets

          • Argent Stonecutter

            King could have made a trebuchet for them.

          • anon_omis

            Why would he? He’s a dog

          • Legion

            Don’t you leave your catapult unguarded with instructions on how it can be used to launch a nuke water balloon, or am I doing something wrong?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            King has… a history… with the Good Old Dog’s club.

        • Ilovehousepets

          History as in, Bino is always hatin’ on king for no reson Reason

          • Ilovehousepets

            Reason*

    • rallyjr

      Maybe the Ferrets aren’t on a side but are actually pulling the stings to keep the war going, in fact i would ignore the possibility that they started it just so they could watch

      • rallyjr

        i mean wouldn’t ignore

  18. xhunterko

    What’s wrong with a chocolate…oh.

    • xhunterko

      In retrospect, here’s the map of the neighborhood you always wanted. Part of it anyways.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        So the wolf house is next to the Good Old Dog’s clubhouse.

        This will not end well.

      • Frank

        I don’t know if we can trust a map made in crayon by a kid who can’t even be bothered to try to spell “Bigglesworth”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          If we can’t trust a wolf, who can we trust?

          • Ilovehousepets

            Our local police force?

  19. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Lack of winnie_the_pooh_spelling tag disappoints me.

  20. Lelouch Vi Brittania

    This is getting more serious (I have got to start coming back here more)

  21. Draven

    I wish I had a pool full of chocolate mousse, or pudding

    • WingedWolfGirl

      I just wish I had a pool… :S

    • Snowmon

      eww… I’m with Rockstar Hawk in this one. Chocolate Mousse/pudding is not only difficult to swim in, it stains fur and after a few hours… it turns in the sun.

      It sounds good at first, but in the end it’s just gross.

      A pool full of Jello on the other hand…

      • FuRrY321

        Hmm… a pool full of Jello…

        :D

        • Draven

          Double Hmm, sounds even more difficult to swim in

          • The Diet Poison

            who cares about swimming in it?

            I mean, its about being ilogical and random…

            Plus, a pool of cheese-cake would be much more delicious… ^_^

        • Argent Stonecutter

          There’s a filksong about that.

      • Legion

        Even if not fur, it’s nearly impossible to get out from underneath scales.

        • Draven

          Now that’s something that I’d be concerned over, point taken

      • Frank

        Why does it seem like you know this from experience?

        • Snowmon

          I was very… “experimental” as a child. That and a kiddie pool was easier to fill. :3 :D

  22. Grip

    That is intolerable! Get that wolf to a pool NOW!

    • Frank

      I would, but we seem to have misplaced the cue ball

  23. Salenstormwing

    I’m surprised. I’d have expected raisin-topped vanilla yogurt. Ferrets love raisins.

  24. Frank

    It just strikes me as strange to see “dad” here to mean an actual biological parent

    • klaykid117

      lol me too

    • FuRrY321

      Heh, I forgot that the wolves had their own house. When I read that I was thinking “owner”, not “quite literally my biological parent, who is a wolf”.

    • Ilovehousepets

      Gets me every time. :/

  25. KSR

    Wow… Amazing cause of war…
    they are too adorable for my taste :)
    (That is why You are ANIMALS!)

  26. Dragongal

    so, why did the cats start the war, or even care? Why not just take cat naps??? :P

    • spiritkitsune

      An arc about cat naps wouldn’t have been that amazing,would it?

      • Frank

        “Graaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaape!”

        • spiritkitsune

          Oh, I think Peanut wouldn’t let her get a long nap.

          • Spirit Studios 2010

            I must ask, where did you get your avatar?

          • Dissension

            That’s not about the comic, though! *peers*

          • spiritkitsune

            I have drawn it.
            Sorry Dissension, just wanted to answer the question. ;-)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s made some amazing one-offs, though.

  27. Vanroth

    why do I get the feeling that the cause of the flood may be the ferrets having emptied out their pool to fill with the chocolate mousse?

    • The Diet Poison

      You might be right…

      But I think Rick will come up with something much more funny

      Whatever it might have happened I’m sure Rick will surprise us.
      ^_^

  28. Syther Kitsune

    Lol @ First panel.

  29. gaboris

    Ya know no mater how simple and “half baked”(if I’m using this expression here right) this lil war plan is, there’s already a nice “water war” themed stratedy game is in my head… I know my imagination is hyperactive. XD
    (????: It doesn’t matter what you have in your head if you just talk about it all the time and don’t make it in the end…)

  30. GameCobra

    They say the cats did it, but we all know who the REAL culprit is:

    The Dolphins.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      fish

      • Draven

        Usurp the human overlords, ehh… i mean, Fish

    • Ilovehousepets

      Dem dolphins… *stares out at the sea*

  31. Ryufire

    Could bath time be the answer to ending the war?

  32. HumeDog

    Now I want to see the third war effort. The Milton Ferrets. They would have high tech super soakers and calling in artillery ballooning. Could also have them charge and doing a ferret war dance. I think it would be pretty cool to see. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9AVvoQozzU&playnext=1&list=PL320742E3C2BA8BBE

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      They probably have some F-35s equipped for this kind of thing they bought on a whim.

  33. Hoheh

    And he was sounding like such a strategist until that last panel…

    • Zarvain

      I’m impressed the pup lasted that long before going off to right field like that. =P
      Wonder where he learned that kind of thing, maybe they get the history/military history channel at their home?

      • Frank

        He… plays… chess…
        with no less than the fastest reader in the neighborhood

        • Hoheh

          Their father and, probably, mother are pretty smart. They’d most-likely educate their cubs similarly.

  34. Wolfenstein

    this comic is EPIC

  35. Exulen

    I can almost see an avatar spoof with tarot waterbending

  36. silverfang16

    Fine, but Zach wants pool rights in exchange for service!

    • spiritkitsune

      The one filled with water, or the one filled with chocolate mousse?

      • Draven

        Completely irrelevant, rabbits are bad swimmers no matter what the pool is filled with

        • spiritkitsune

          I think Humans are bad swimmers in chocolate mousse too.
          ;-)

  37. theblackcateyes

    The Zach expression in the first slot is so cute…

    SO SO CUTE!!!!

    and…

    WOHOOO!!!! Zach is finally here..

  38. Draven

    The Great Water War

    This is the story of one epic battle,
    of two different forces, whose cages were rattled.
    One side of cats, the other of dogs
    and  a misguided rabbit, with his head in a fog.
    Dogs led by a wolf, a cub to be exact,
    fighting in retaliation, after a surprise cat attack.
    The cats, led by Max, try to conquer the pool,
    if he thinks that it’s easy, he is quite a fool.
    But with the big guns depleted, and balloons running low,
    the fatigue of war will soon start to show.
    From spying to nukes, anything goes.
    But what happens from here, only Rick knows.

    • Legion

      Epic, moar poemz plz.

      • Draven

        Perhaps as the story line progresses, a poem with every strip would grow tiresome and lose excitement
