    Aww, they really did forget him :(

    • rtlstien

      Oh boy… he’s either going to be feral or realize that they don’t need money… or perhaps he’s gone crazy

      • volkoseba

        Is Grape going to have to eat another Communist revolutionary?

        • T-Squared

          Please don’t remind me of that. o_o

          I don’t care if it’s natural, It’s still creepy.

          SHE ATE A LIVING, INTELLIGENT BEING (by Housepets standards), FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!

          ( :P )

          • legendario13

            Please little bud, can you tone down your voice a little, thank you………
            MMMmmmmmm….
            Somebody else got hungry too?

          • Argent Stonecutter
          • Valerio

            Yup! And other predators eat prey in the wild
            And Grape and Max each called dibs on an unconscious bird
            And Grape cannot enter the bird section of the zoo or the birds will unionize
            And Sabrina was expected to ‘get rid’ of the ferals by eating them
            A good thing about the HP universe is that that ‘pesky food chain’ is respected. It adds that touch of realism instead of going disney, where characters live off air and water.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I suspect that it was inspired by Kevin and Kell and “Herd Thinners, Inc” but somehow it seems creepier here.

          • aerion

            I agree with Valerio, the realism makes the comic BETTER, not WORSE.
            And besides, if it’s tolerated in Tom and Jerry then it should be tolerated in a webcomic (especially since web-comics are harder to get to – no way is any 10-or-younger kids going to be checking this comic out on any kind of regular basis without adult help…)

          • spencershot5

            im 13 an i check it regularly

          • donimo

            he said 10 or under…….ur over that

        • spencershot5

          just 3 years off!

          • aerion

            If you’re 13 and don’t know animals eat each other, and possibly have seen it on TV, I’d be sceptical to how sheltered you’ve been <.<
            (Clearly you HAVE been informed of this fact, Spencer, at the very least through the comic, but you also don't seem to be in a corner crying over how the comic mentally touched you in bad ways <.<)

          • spencershot5

            not really my mom don’t care what i do in fact ive been able to watch whatever i want on tv sence i was in 5th grade this includes things like south park. i think it was funny :P

      • SilentWolfXIII

        A rich ferret gone crazy? That’s the kinda formula for disaster you see on the back of movies 0_0

      • Valerio

        not that there was much sanity to start with…

      • WolfBrother

        yeah, i bet that he went crazy or something. poor Keene *shakes head miserably* V_V

    • silverfang16

      Wow..he has been stuck in the zoo this whole time? O_O’

    • 1boredcanadian

      I called it! And yes it is still funny.

  2. Ryufire

    Return to the zoo return to the what?

  3. cheetahwolf

    is the ferrat still in the zoo

    • cheetahwolf

      i think Keene is still trap in the zoo

      • cheetahwolf

        alright time for Lana, Duke, Simon, Rock, Pit, Jeeves, Cousin Rodney, Daryl, Lucretia, Lucretia’s mother, Snow, the other Daryl, “Four Finger Discount” Jack, Elaine, Natalie, Poncho, Uncle Deadeye, Miles, and Miles’ cubs to save Keene from the zoo.
        wait-a-min… maybe the wolves shouldnt go back

  4. Jackalope121

    yeehaw! field trip :p

  5. Zukio

    I love how everyone saw this coming, but it doesn’t make it any less funny.

  6. xhunterko

    The only thing money can’t buy is sense. It has to come with sensibility. It’s a rule.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It is a truth universally held that a ferret endowed with money and health is in need if wacky hijinks. – not Jane Austen.

  7. LupisLight

    Haha, he’s still stuck at the zoo. Yay, field trip time!

  8. IceKitsune

    How in the world is he still there? You know what forget I’m going to file this one under plot convenience and call it a day. Though I’m glad that Keene stuff actually went somewhere and wasn’t completely pointless.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I was expecting this to become a running gag, not a plot arc.

      • Valerio

        Rick griffin: unexpect the expected since arc #1

        • T-Squared

          *points to the comment about the Communist Revolutionary Mouse, and my reaction*

          Yeah. >.>

  9. AuvaAkita

    The zoo underestimates the power of Karishad

    • volkoseba

      No estimates have been made regarding the power of Karishad, as such activity would be an exercise in futility.

    • Crescent Fox

      The Internet underestimates the power of all the people with King avatars.

      • volkoseba

        We are legion!

    • Keldor

      Why do you think Karishad has to be kept locked up at the zoo? Because he’d be far too dangerous out on his own!

      • MythicalRedFox

        He’d probably be able to trick some people and somehow end up as president of the U.S. I would vote for him!

  10. Lance

    haha! I wondered what that clever fox was going to do with all that stuff. X3

    • SilentWolfXIII

      Probably taunt the alligators. It’s what I would do

  11. Zenaku

    Wow to be in a zoo for that long keene must’ve gone crazy.

  12. nyathetexascat

    Where is the competetive alt txt teller? :p

    • SamBlob

      Alt txt: “Chicken wire? Whose pen do they think this is ?!”

      • cheetahwolf

        does this mean the chickens are gone
        like, been eaten

      • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

        Thanks for the Alternate Text.

      • T-Squared

        It’s a fountain pen, of course! :D

    • LoneWolf

      alt: Chicken wire? Whose pen do they think this is?

      • LoneWolf

        CURSES! MUST REFRESH

    • legendario13

      Cell Phone?

  13. cheetahwolf

    anybody else see the DONK in the last panel

    • facade11663

      it’s because he dropped the mayo or what ever that jar was

  14. Somebody Somewhere

    Bring on the Buddhist/Hippie/Feral ferret. Since I predict either enlightenment, nature-freak, or freak of nature!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I forsee ferrets with pet ferrets.

    • silverfang16

      Strange, I predict feral savage crazy ferret.

  15. SilentWolfXIII

    Why do the words “Slay back” keep repeating themselves in my head all the sudden?

  16. DaveedW

    So Keene was in fact all this time on the zoo? O.O He will be grudging against someone.

    • Xane

      Yeah, at this point I figure he’s either gone native, or he’s so mad that he’ll buy the whole zoo just to destroy it. He’s been there since at least a few days after Thanksgiving. Weasel rage is pretty justified now.

  17. Valerio

    Jeeves. is. so. DEAD

    • Ryufire

      Hope Karishad doesn’t watch the home shopping networking! :P

    • cheetahwolf

      or Karishad.

      • rallyjr

        I’ll go with both

    • silverfang16

      Nooooo! I like Jeeves, he is the only one I get to apply a stereotypical butler accent to!

  18. Valerio

    this is KARISHAD’S pen.
    chicken who doesn’t get in!

  19. Tailz

    Hard to believe they left him for 3 months, he could be a lunatic by now. D:

    • Argent Stonecutter

      We don’t know how long it was in HP time.

      • Tailz

        What’s HP? :P

        • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

          I do hope you’re kidding. HP! stands for “Housepets!”

          • Tailz

            O_o…… *says nervously* I knew that.

  20. Valerio

    ‘Donk’ went the ferret!

    • legendario13

      is not the MAYO bottle when hits the floor?

      • Valerio

        yup, that was it

        • Legendario13

          Yay! I got it right this time

  21. filmperson

    Oh yeah, trapped at the zoo, almost forgot about that.

  22. Lionbone

    i love how Kerishad makes his “Awesome” face

    • Valerio

      I love how karishad keeps BEING awesome :D

      • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

        An awesome sly fox. ^.^

  23. Therolyn

    Oh the possibilities of what could of happened all that time.

    Karishad is as awesome as always.

  24. Frank Furter

    i was starting to worry about our zoobound friend.
    also love the fox hehehehe

    • Crackles

      Let’s hope he hasn’t institutionalized yet.

  25. Shiranai

    Really?… He’s been at the zoo since like the end of December.
    That’s like *counts with fingers* 3 months!

    Are you seriously expecting me to believe that nobody even bother acknowledging Keene’s whereabouts? LOL Such a great family.

  26. spencershot5

    …good that fox is still in the zoo
    i thought he escaped :P

    • Valerio

      ‘escape’ is such an improper word.
      He just takes a stroll here and there, from time to time, and enlightens the world with his unbridled wiseness.

      • spencershot5

        i love how fun he is if i was freinds with him i would never be bored :P
        i love his awsome supper happy face to

  27. WingedwolfGirl

    How do they know Keene came back if they haven’t seen him lately?
    Also Karishad had that much power at his paw-tips, and stays at the zoo taunting alligators? Huh.

  28. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    Oh Karshad, you sly sly fox. ^^

    • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

      ….er Karishad with an “i”…

  29. Grip the Wolf

    I sense both trouble and hilarity coming…

  30. Scruff

    I want a cell with 3+ months battery life!

  31. seoultrain

    I guess Karishad had a good Christmas. It’s a shame that he had to ruin Keene’s. I mean, there’s “sly” and then there’s annoying.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      There’s a reason they call Loki “uncle fox”.

    • Xane

      I like Karishad but this has kind of reached “downright mean” levels… he’s been hanging out in the Housepets universe too much, he’s contracted Binofluenza!

  32. Crescent Fox

    OH YES! We are coming back to this. YAY! :D

  33. Valerio

    wonder if the wolves get to escort the ferrets.
    Chaos ensues

  34. Tom Flapwell

    Maybe he won’t want to leave because he’s found a love interest.

    • Crescent Fox

      That would be quite the plot.

    • Valerio

      and he’s planning to leave everything to said fiancée

  35. FerreTrip

    This is going to be interesting…especially with troublemaker Karishad involved.

  36. Draven

    The optimism of Duke in the face of a potentially serious situation makes me giggle.

  37. Cristian100n

    I can’t Believe he’s still in the zoo
    Didn’t he get out?

  38. ResCoin999

    Maybe Keene will just sic Jeeves on Karishad :)
    With authorized force. It’s what I’d do. =)

  39. ResCoin999

    also, does anyone wanna tell me how to get an avater on here without that gravatar thing?

  40. Dexter Dark One

    All it took to relize he was gone was a jar of mayo and a long period of time. He’s got such a great family dosnt he?

  41. ResCoin999

    dang…can’t have an avatar following me all around my web life.

  42. FancyTomato

    Wait….He’s still there?!

  43. black fox

    Wow he still there lol I wonder how menu days it bin for the houspet world

  44. OokamiJester

    O.o What kinda cell does he have?! That is some ridiculous battery life!

  45. Kitch

    The final apocalyptic battle between the Ferrets and Karishad. :p

  46. spencershot5

    wait a muinite… what if Karishad got kennys phone by eating him 0_0…i mean kenny is small enough think about the size dif betwen a fox and a ferret. i could happen

    • spencershot5

      also rlly how long does that phones battery last i want one ill eat a ferret for a phone with that battery :P

    • Dissension

      Who’s Kenny?

      • legendario13

        i think he mean keene, and maybe keene got his charger with him.

  47. Sarnoff

    He must have been jonesing pretty hard. I doubt the zoo gives wild animals orange soda.

  48. MythicalRedFox

    That looks like a jar of protein, not a soda can.

  49. IslaKariese

    Wow, it’s been more than three months already… It’s amazing how interesting the rest of the world is when our favorite glutton is in peril, huh?
