Kitty Grape!!!! o.o *Faints from cuteness*
Let’s all faint on three.
Alt txt Plz can’t check it on my phone
Should have been “Wharrgarbl”.
*Too distracted by cuteness to faint*
*Faint before you even started counting because of cuteness overload*
Did not faint*
what are you gous doing?
Will someone just faint in tone to the “A Shave and the Haircut” bit? I am just to mad that I may belay faint from the cutness of pup Peanute and Kitty Gr (faints)
wakes up looks again faints again
*Regains consciousness and faints again!* Too cute!!!!
*apologizes to all about the mess*
*gets paint thinner*
so what are we….*look and faint*
this gives me an idea…
*show to random guy on the streets*
*watch him faint*
*rummage through pockets*
*look up* … what?
*faints and starts to twich and mumbles ‘’so CUTE” then wakes up to be surronded by extrimaly cute pond puppies then faints again then wakes up to see that i’m trapped in a cage as the puppies stare at me then faints again* ……………………………………………………………………………………………………
*dies by cuteness*
*uses jaws of cuteness to revive you!
aka a kiss from puppy Peanut!
I guess that works as smelling salts
Not “Dog Breath”…PUPPY BREATH! MUCH MUCH BETTER!!!
Mildly…. And definitely not if they’ve gotten into whatever my dog Styx got into when he was a puppy. The vet had a hard time staying around him during that one and vets typically have very strong constitutions.
oh my god, puppy peanut and cute tiny grape!!!
That is a great face to make when you meet someone!
lol, most certainly…if you look closely enough, you’ll see he’s also licking the cage wire.
That just makes him even more adorable!
Agreed, I just felt it needed to be noted.
It’s cute in a sort of creepy way. Imagine if you were Grape, you would have no idea how long has he been there like that.
Puppy Peanut is too cute for anyone to even notice the creepiness. :3
Exactly my point. :3
I’m pretty sure that, as a kid, I could get creeped out by other kids. Even the ones adults found cute
Watching you… O_O’
Man, I wish *I* could wake up and find such a bundle of adorableness by my side
I wake up everyday and see a face like that.
Is that not normal?
The perfect first impression!
You can use it at job interviews and dates!
Peanut is thinking “The voices in my head are telling me to hug you.”
Grape is thinking ‘The voice in my head is telling me to run… RUN NOW!’
“too much effort, maybe if i just go back to sleep…”
He won’t be there to wak…. “GGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAPPPPPPEEEE”
The last panel is priceless. <3
heck, the whole ARC is priceless!
*pins a price on it*
*gets horribly murdered*
♫ How much is that kitty in the pound cell… the one with the cute catnip maus? ♪
her value, sir, is measured in LOVE
Peanut is silly with love, can’t you see that?
No, the alt text after the last panel is priceless.
Here comes the “so cute” and “d’awww” comments!
any doubts about that?
And so…it begins…
To the start of a beautiful friendship!
Even before they really knew each other, Peanut was ruining Grapes naps.
I didn’t realize that till now. If only Grape knew back then what she does now.
She would’ve smacked him, but still gone with him. After all, it got her name changed from Princess Periwinkle to Grape.
that alone would be worth it
beat me to it by a few seconds!
Call it a tie?
Grape Begins…she hasn’t slept that well since.
which would explain her somehow sour personality at times
Maybe the first panel of the next strip will be Peanut going
Peanut hasn’t seen a Cat before at this point so he would have no idea what one looks like, and might not even know what one is (though that is less likely). His first words to her are going to be along the lines of “What are you?”
lol everything is just so cute in this strip. Peanuts face is hilarious!
this arc promises to leave scars of cute in our souls forever!
There could be worse scars….scars of cute are definitely acceptable.
Grape had her own T.V.
Peanut was waking her up from the moment they met.
The TV says some pretty fun stuff in the house, I wonder what it said back then?
“Lolly, lolly, lolly, get your adverbs here!”
“Conjunction Junction, What’s your function?”
I want to see Peanut’s face in panel 4 without the fence in the way.
^ I second the above. ^
I just did it!!!
It’s not the best in the world but I made it!
U R a genius Zuk
Oh wow I honestly did not see this coming…
ok, without the fence, it really is creepy
I still find it creepily adorable!
He looks like a mad puppy with the bars behind him.
Just pretend the chicken wire is actually padding and the new image makes a lot more sense.
“Errrr, Hi Guys My name is Peanut”
Ok yeah with the fence behind him it looks like he lost his mind and is a padded room
HAI WATS UR NAME!?
Princ… Actually I have no name…
Hey, dad can we take this one home? His name is Prince! How cool is that!?
This could explain why he thought Grape was male at first.
it’s really weird that in all these years Peanut didn’t hear his parents referring to Grape as a female or that she never brought up the subject…
Yeah, i was just wondering the same thing…
They have TVs in the cages.
I wonder if they have cable.
“Of course we have cable! See? It’s that black thing that goes into the wall socket. It…er… used to be dark brown, but I bit through that one.”
Naughty, naughty, Frank, I guess its a good thing peanut is there to save Princess Periwinkle lmao
If I were in Grape’s place, I’m pretty sure I’d be hanging from the ceiling in panel 4.
But then Peanut wouldn’t have that adorable smile!
Ah! That’s because you can’t see panel five!
… reminds me of my college dorm that I stayed in for my first year… cept I didn’t had a TV… nor a top bunk…
So you had people staring at you behind a wire mesh wall?
…were they responsible for getting the people watching you or did you have to bring your own?
Or maybe dogs?
Penut’s face: Ohai!
Grape’s face: ‘th hell?
Grape isn’t even using her pillow!
looks like there could be a future for this, maybe a side comic “Housepets: The Early years”
A purple cat, who’d adopt that?
I know I would!
I’d be all over that.
a purple, bipedal, talking, video game playing nerdcat… I’d adopt ‘em <:3c
*Raises hand* In a flat second.
*Raises paw* Oooh me me!!!
She almost looks like a dog, actually
I would, I wouldn’t even think twice about it.
I’d adopt a purple anything.
Weren’t those problematic fluff balls on Star Trek purple?
I said anything and I don’t regret it.
A dinosaur comes to mind. One with too many annoying platitudes and a rather hilarious outtake reel.
Tribbles are earthtone. Brown, cream, …
they both look so cute!
I normally don’t comment but I have to say I no longer have a head because it a sploded from an overload of cuteness!
That’s pretty typical occurrence in this arc.
I’m surprised he kept his head this long.
What can I say Baby Grape and Peanut at the same time! That’s two silver bullets and my head can only take one… with recovery time between.
They haven’t even said anything yet, just wait for the wednesday’s comic. It will be a full magazine of silver bullets.
I don’t think I will be able to take anymore
Don’t worry. Just like being turned into a Newt, you’ll get better.
(In Theresa’s voice from Fable II)
And so our story begins…
“But who is the hero of our tale?”
Its gotta be Rick
Oh man imagine the opening sequence of fable II with Peanut and Grape. Wonder how it would go differently
I just hope that Grape isn’t Rose, cause that would just be sad. Though I think Spirit Dragon would do great as Theresa, and Pete might be a good Reaver.
I think King would fit Reaver better, at the end of the game Reaver helps out the heroes, Pete would be Lucien or the commandant
(but considering everybody’s personalities the entire story could play out differently)
To fill out the cast I could see Fox as Garth, and Sabrina as Hannah since Grape seems to be Rose.
Fiddler and Keys could have a cameo as the minstrels who sing about Peanut
Also if it were to adhere to the story I’m guessing Peanut wouldn’t spare a moment to revive Grape at the end.
Grape: And finally, maybe I’ll be getting some good sleep…
Peanut: Noooo! Revive! Revive I say!
I was unprepared.
[as Yosemite Sam]: “I’m so happy, I think I’m gonna…*Pop!* *Confetti comes out*
Hm.. Double beds?
I think it’s closer to bunk-beds.
WUTS it matter look at all the cuteness
Avatars for everyone! http://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=327105#p327105
Young Peanut and Grape, alla my d’aww! Yaaaay!
Nobody’s commented on how adorable Peanut is in the first panel, getting out of his collar. Such a sneaky little puppy, and thanks to that now we have Grape!
BTW for anyone on an iPhone, the alt text is just a bunch of random letters (adladaaaaagalahaaaallllaaa). I’m assume that’s the sound Peanut is making panting at / licking the cage.
When I look at that first panel all I can see is that picture of the Pomeranian trying to get out of its collar only to have its skin get bunched up more and more until you cant see its head
Everyone get naked!
Hmm… I wonder who sleeps in the other bunk at the moment, if anyone. Maybe Max! It would be ironic if Grape had met Max before she ever met Peanut, even if she didn’t remember. Would also be interesting if she were the one that bit his ear…
This was not that long ago in her life maybe 2 years at most, there’s almost no way that Grape wouldn’t remember Max if he had stayed with her in the shelter. Its most likely just a random cat we will never see or she is alone in there.
If she was only there a day or two, she might simply have never been introduced to the other cat, and thus didn’t form any interesting memories in the first place. Would you recognize the stranger that sat next to you on an airplane flight?
Its more likely that she is alone in there or with a random other cat. And sitting next to someone on an airplane is not anywhere near the same as being in the same Shelter Cage with some one for a day or two.
grapes first nap interuption from penut cute
I was going to sleep tonight, but the fourth panel woke me up. Good job, Rick.
“it’s like my life, but from the outside” – grape
and this is where it all started
OMG… that’s so CUTE!
Just like a little brother being a dork to his sister.
Ten Bucks says he gets in the cage, and grape smacks him :3
Or glomps him…Idk how grape got into the pound!
Anyways Cute x Over 9000
make it 999,999 (waiting for value to increase)
I had scrambled eggs with onions and ham for breakfast, but I looked at this strip and it felt like I was eating a bowl of sugar with chocolate chips and caramel syrup.
Sooo THX a lot Rick you ruined my breakfast… it was TOTALLY worth it. X3
I started Monday with the biggest smile.
Thank you Rick-sama!
D’Awwwwwwwww I don’t know how much more of the cuteness I can take Rick
there’s absolutely not ENOUGH of cuteness, here!
This is pure soul medicine, high dosages are recommended!
But iam about ready to O.D. oh who cares BRING ON THE CUTENESS RICK!!!!!
Sorry peanut is adorable but that just looks creepy.
they is both so smalls. is it possible to punch the idea of peanut and grape?
Better ask Spirit Dragon. She’s the resident expert at punching concepts.
OH GOD i said punch! i meant pinch. PINCH
Grape is so cute.
lol at the other dogs not liking Peanut.
I could imagine Peanut’s personality irking people.
But he’s just a puppy! Most dogs tend to instinctively love a puppy even if it’s not theirs. Maybe they’re in bad moods because they’re pound dogs, couldn’t blame them for that. Or he really was a psycho little ball of fluff before he grew up.
Peanut’s pretty much the only dog I’d want to have as a pet if Housepets! were real. I’ve always felt that Peanut is the most “dog” dog in the strip, all the other ones tend to be too serious or nutty (or both!), except maybe Fox.
…or they just sensed the cat-lover in him.
My dog tried to nurse our few-week-old kitten as though it were her own at one point.. Just saying.
That is just too cute.
I have to totally agree with you I mean I love king but if he was pet I might just kill him he’s to little and weak to have a proactive owner like me and he can be REALLY annoying but fox and peanut are tough dogs and very playfull not to mention how adorable fox looks as well as peanut
Well it is dissapointing and a little strange that NONE of the dogs at the pound liked him, but don’t forget Peanut had only just moved into the neighborhood, and has many friends in Babylon Gardens at present day.
But it could only be destiny that on this day at the pound those years ago, our beloved Peanut Butter Puppy would find a new sibling in a little purple kitten – the beginnings of a friendship that would last a lifetime, and possibly even longer…
And from that day forth Grape never had an uninterrupted nap again…
Oh well, that’s still cute/slightly creepy.
<–is currently on the floor, anime-twitching, mumbling something like "squeeeecutecutecutesqueeee"
not like “adladaaaaagalahaaaallllaaa?”
And so it begins…in other news the area that used to be Canada has been leveled by the cuteness that is Housepets. That is all.
Peanut: I like this doggy!
-starts to shake as a large number appears on his stomah- help meeee the cuteness has activated a powerbomb inside me anymore cuteness and i will surely explode
That’s freaking adorable
Grape: Who are you and why are you staring at me like that?
Also, the title text is pure WIN!
My, Peanut’s tongue surely looks buff today
It must be from all the exercise it gets >:-D
This will be the cutest origin story ever! ^^
has an cuteness overload and expldes
*mumbles, grumbles* Sheesh, it’s already hard enough to keep this place clean, but how is one *supposed* to do it with all these rainbows and hearts spread everywhere, every MINUTE?!
*looks at the cuteness and falls out of the chair unconscious*
Normally a naked person with his tongue hanging out watching someone sleep would be creepy…but here it’s just adorable!
Next comic: Peanut’s first beating by Grape.
If Rick will put in his book the epic snuggle original between King and Bailey, and something (anything) featuring PPB and KGJ, that book will be declared at risk of cuteness meltdown.
If it melts down, you’ll just have to buy another one.
the perfect marketing strategy!
Okay, so the “First words” that I saw last time was actually Peanut arriving at the pound to get a “little brother”. And Yes I mean Little brother because Peanut thought that Grape was a male. Also Is that an overhead TV!?!
Awwwww puppy peanut is so incredibly cute *dies from cuteness*
That’s really creepy, and kitty grape seems to agree.
hey guys, i love this crazy house pets comic, and i have my own idea’s for it but i dont know Rick Griffin’s e-mail to send him my idea’s for that guest week part, do any of you know please tell me.
There’s lots of fan projects in the forums. Rick will generally let it be known when he needs guest art.
When I “adopted” my maine coon Buddy from a pound,
he was sleeping exactly like Grape.
Thank you for bringing that memory back to my mind.
Ps: He had no TV O_o ………bad pound???
err how bad whus it and also i cant get over how cool yer pic looks i just love it <3
Muppet- er, I mean Housepets Babies will be right back.
I dunno if I said this before, but this arc Tastes Like Diabetes and I LOVE IT.
*POP* goes the Peanut..!
Not Grape. Princess Periwinkle.
I wonder what kind of TV Shows they let animals in the pound watch. Probably just Animal Planet or something similar to it in the Housepets universe.
peanut be creepin
So this is how they met wow .how did he get out?
Grape kitten is the best kitten <3
Maxwell a close second.
peanut will always be the baby in my opinion
he’s just too cute to be responsible
Because everyone else is getting too annoying with the “dawww” stuff, I’m going to ask a serious question instead.
How did Mrs. Sandwich not notice that there was no longer a puppy at the other end of the leash? I’d think that the collar being pulled on by gravity would be rather more noticeable than just the leash suspended between her hand and Peanut’s neck.
2) Peanut can run FAST. I guess that, by the time she noticed her puppy was gone he was already at Grape’s cage.
Yes I like that answer, oh yeah and, D’Awwwwwwwwwww
“Heh, Peanut’s not pulling for once. Think all the sniffing around tired him out? What a good bo- uh-oh… PEANUT?!?! GET BACK HERE!!”
i think that he just saw grape
Haha, so even as a kitten, Peanut still interrupted Grape’s naps…
…I can’t be the only one who tried to say the alt text, can I?
been trying all day! and also licking fences with cats tucked away inside. XD
*faints then wakes up then looks at kitten grape then faints again then wakes up* so cu*faints again* CUTE!!! i cant imagen what everyone else looks like then.
I just found my new favorite panel! The last panel on this strip has to be my favorite, I would love to have that poster sized with some kind of meme about friendship.
I’m loving this story line, can’t wait to hear how more about how they met and got to know each other better.
sooo, the only thing that could possibly make this cuter is if peanut was wearing a doggy diaper and a pacifier
sorry my little cousin dresses my boston terrier in baby cloths and its ADORABLE
aaawww baby grape she so cute <3
They get tvs in their cages? That sounds pretty awesome! Also OMG soooo adorable Grape kitten and puppy Peanut!
Hey, most prisons in the US have cable TV for the inmates (if not in their cells), so why not?
I imagine the selection in either prison or pound is rather limited, though…
just look at there faces. PRICELESS!!!!
ask a ninja reference?
anyways, Rick Griffin, i (and most likely many others) demand a poster with every single housepets cast charector as puppies or whatever the baby is called in their species, and all in the same picture otherwise i will cry
This is now my late/very early birthday gift.
when i think of Peanut meetting the other dogs this comes to mind
Actually I think Peanut reminds me of a certain mouse…
Oh GOD… SO CUUUTE @.@ i dont have any other words to describe this..
Also hi everyone im back ^^”
“…And the Vlad came back…”
Is that a bad thing ?..
Rick please make this arc nice and long i think everyone would appreciate that
I wonder why the dogs didn’t like him? :c
do we have to answer that?
Wow, Grape does look kinda boyish, and Peanut looks both cute and crazy in the forth pic.
Grape was in a dog pound!? O_o
I’m sure it was just a pet shelter.
Dog pound is just one more word for animal shelter, you know.
GOOD GRIEF HE’S NAKED!!
Grape seems to be a bit older here than her visit to the “Eldritch Vet”.
She might actually be, if the vet examined her when she was admitted to he shelter rather than when she left. You can interpret the dialogue from the vet arc either way.
I used to make housepets jokes but then I took a tounge to the fence
Eh, that joke is dead now. http://i39.tinypic.com/4icx2p.png
I’m really getting into how grape and peanut met but I CAN’T WAIT for when peanut moves and meets all the pets AS BABIES its gonna be so cute
And that, is how I met your mother
just look at there faces. XD
Must see what happens next! I don’t think I’m gonna make it.. *dies*
Shh their are cubs here XD
X faints x I love penut!!!!!!!!!!
