Max looks good in the second panel! ^^
Cut and paste. Shhhhhhh, dont tell anyone.
That does look familiar. It strikes me that that’s the same exact face he made when Grape was threatening to even his ears out, months and months ago.
Nah, It’s different. Se here: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/03/17/kitty-talk/
That’s right… all the ‘nip.
All of the nip!
*holds a broom in the air*
All of the nip?
ALL OF THE NIP?!
All your nip are belong to us.
(Sorry, somebody had to say it.)
There seems to be a little nip in the air… XD
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DOING
TAKE OFF EVERY NIP
FOR GREAT JUSTICE
Oh yeah I also for to capitalize Max.
And once again we have an instance where the corrections go on for 5 times longer than the original article. Congratulations. You would make an excellent historic scholar.
My mind is mostly Ponies, Making my mind say Screw Grammar.
Well, I was in a rush to get First comment. Failed.
max in 2nd panel’s so epic…
He looks so sly, so slick… like a clever troll or a secret agent trying to woo the ladies.
I would say he looks like in …. seductive mode
I can understand why Grape fell for him
when i saw the 2nd panel, Sly Cooper just popped up in my head XD
I can see that…so suave, so debonair, so…sly…lol
Ah Max, that adorable idiot.
HAHAHA I just read that with a sigh at the beggining
Adorable indeed, if only he had Mr. Lincoln on his side xD
No, he needs Grover Cleveland on his side.
I know he’s a president, but what currency is he on?
Wikipedia says he’s on the $1000.
1000 dollar bills are a myth!
Actually 1,000 dollar bills do exist, they were discontinued in I think 1969 (along with the 500, 5,000, 10,000, and 100,000 dollar bills), but they were only really used by banks to transfer large sums of money at a time…
Though any that still exist are either in the federal reserve or being hoarded by collectors…
Huh…..interesting. It seems these larger bills started vanishing the more popular electronic funds became.
$100,000 bills are the only ones not in public circulation. Other large bills are exceedingly rare, but $100,000 bills are used exclusively in bank-to-bank transfers.
No, he needs the best. A Franklin, Ben Franklin.
Best president ever!
he wasn’t a president at all he died a year before your first president
O_o Mind blown!
I guess he was spending all his time inventing the Cotton Gin.
Franklin didn’t invent the cotton gin, that was Eli Whitney…
Poor Eli, he had so much promise as an inventor until he assassinated Lincoln
Oh jeez, I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.
This is just plain funny! So much confusion about Franklin. XD
Wasn’t Benjamin Franklin the one who made the New Deal? And his brother, who was named after Ben’s teddy bear, rode on horseback to Britain from Boston to light two lights so the American people could see their opponents during the Civil War. But then India killed most of us with disease, so…
I want to live in the alternate reality where Ben Franklin was the first Hereditary President of the US.
And the civil war was caused because his son wanted to give the US back to the British?
Nah, in that universe the Civil War was over Metrification.
That… sounds like a discussion that could happen between history buffs…
And railroad gauges.
I can just picture it – they’re setting up to drive in the silver stake to secure the final piece of track in the middle of the great north-south line, and they discover that the northern rail company and the southern rail company are usin different gauges…
Incidentially, I believe that Franklin’s son actually was a British symphasizer during the revolution.
It was on the Nashville-Atlanta line and a banjo duel broke out in the confusion. Sherman’s banjo misfired because he couldn’t get metric strings in Atlanta. Nothing to do but burn the place down and wage terrible war between littermates!
“Are… you trying to bribe me with a penny?”
What?! No, it’s a five! And you’d better accept it, that’s two and a half weeks of allowance!
It’s not a pony?
If it was Max, it probably would be a penny.
How can you say no to a face like that?
I could, seeing one could probably lose his job for selling nip to a cat. I don’t think a quarter is even remotely worth the risks.
… I’m doing this wrong, aren’t I?
Yes. Yes you are. You’re supposed to say “Ya man”. XD
With a Jamaican accent. Yes, I am referencing Cool Runnings. XD
that IS adorable :D
Wait, so it worked? Or is that a tricky way of saying “Get out”?
Of course it did! People love cute kitties and lolcats in this world, too!
I guess it makes sense, when you think about the fact that this is very likely a pets supply store. Why hire someone who doesn’t like pets?
BTW, lolcats is a new term for me. To Google!
Hey it worked! Haha good job Max!
Screw the rules, I have money (and cuteness).
Noo! Not here!
proof! being adorable gets you stuff
-_- did the quarter bribe work?!?!?! it looks like it did….
Huzzah! Bad economy works in favor of pets!
oooooorrrrrrr… his supper cuteness did it
Someone has watched the Weekenders…
I’d seel him the ‘nip only because he’s got that SMASHING grin
And Grape went allover him!
I just love Max’s grins.
haha! Yay for Maxwell! =D
OH Yay! :3
we all love max…. but on a side note its nice to see you have come out of hiding max
Lol hello hello!
wait, where did the quarter come from?
His collar. It’s where everybody seems to keep their wallets and other stuff.
Totally an inter-dimensional infinite space collar because it wouldn’t hold anything if you moved around any at all unless it was literally choking him…
Collars can be the equivalent of a purse or wallet in this universe, as demonstrated in previous strips. The collars aren’t super-tight, they just have pockets. = P
Even the designer thing collars like King’s.
Have you seen how wide the collars are in relation to their necks?
it’s comfortable! don’t judge the collar…. e0e
timelord technology. everything’s bigger on the inside
YES! I wonder what animal the Doctor would become if he came into this dimension?
When you think about it, where else would they keep their money/stuff? Well, maybe kangaroos won’t have that problem, but everyone else.
Umm… not sure kangaroo children joeys would agree
The kangaroos could have pouch dividers. Good for twins, or to keep your joey in one pocket and your stuff in the other.
But wait, would these dividers be natural or made? And if the latter, how could kangaroos buy them?
Over analyzing powers go! >:D
Like a Snugli baby carrier, except without straps?
In the money pouch the bought for such an occasion. Which begs the question: did the chicken or the egg come first?
Only in this case it’s more a question of the chicken or the egg carton.
Well good news for females.
The collars are hammerspace. o.o
I have to say my dear sir that is a good question.
That is so cute >w<
personally i feel panel 3 is cuter than 2
Same and 4as well-black
Um no comment from me-blood
I do to, it’s just the innocent looking face :3
Anyone who uses Max’s face from panel 2 as their avatar, I’ll give you 3 cookies and an internets!
Hows this then?
Opps messed up, should be proper one now
Stupid thing not working ><
Panel 3 is cuter.
Dido, Queen of Carthage?
I was gonna, before Lycos showed up….
It wasn’t working last night, now its working.
Max still has that incredible smug.
I know, it’s almost as awesome as Housepets!
Flip. That was supposed to be a reply to something.
When a message gets deleted, but it has replies, the replies after it get messed up.
I was feeling a little down, but I’ll be darned if Max’s face in panel 3 and panel 4 didn’t cheer me right up. Thank you for that, it was much needed.
On a darker note…. is Max turning to drugs because of Peanut and Grape cuddling at the movies? Was that ever answered?
No, Max is just an addict. Proof can be found here: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2012/01/30/stranger-danger-exchanger/
Addicts don’t fall on their addictions in hard times? X3
Of course, they CAN–but Max is a cat. Cats are drawn to catnip as bees are drawn to flowers. They need nothing more than the desire to play.
MY cats look at each other when we fill their mouse with catnip and say to each other, “I am CAT; it is MINE; shut up!” They have totally awesome attitudes.
(Note: I am NOT telling anyone to do so; I am merely pointing out my cats attitudes)
Plan B, Max will say he needs it for medicinal reasons. As in “sell it to me and your face remains unscratched”
Funny and charming update, congrats
Max is much too sweet to say something like that! He asks Grape to say in instead.
I’m pretty sure the clerk is telling Max to meet him out back and not planning to show up. How rude!
So long as the cat with the weird eye isn’t back there.
I guess, from the clerk’s reaction, that this is not the first time something like this happens.
I think Rick totally reclycled peanut’s peanut’s expression from the past strip, notice it’s the same 4th panel
o i just noticed that lol good catch
but… how do you recycle expression
I did not recycle! I especially don’t do cross-species recycling
sorry my english is not so good, i was trying to imply it in a funny-curious way. didn’t mean to upset
Similar, not the same. In either case, totally adorable.
AGH! THE ADORBS!!! >.<
Week 2 of One-offs!
This strip has rekindled my love for Max.
And not sure if Jet set radio reference…
this is cute
Back in MY day, bribing with a quarter actually meant something! It gave RESPECT, not “adorable.”
Quarters were still silver back then, right?
If you can’t respect Maxwell now, then you’re all doomed to eternity.
You hear me? Dooooomed!
my deepest respect fo Max, sly divinity!
for some reason I don’t expect “see me out back” to portend well for max.
Well, they do need a place the k-9 squad won’t watch
Double-fail for Max in the alt text: “Also I was going to use it to pay for my stuff but OK.”
my favorite panel is the last one he looks so cute thinking a quarter will bribe the guy.
Don’t know why but I thought the shop keeper was a girl X3
dont know guess we will see when they meet out back
I agree with that decision. xD
Part of me thinks Max was banking on this reaction.
Or he saw it in a movie and decided to give it a try.
I love Max’s adorable smile in the first panel x3
I don’t think he needs the quarter, the face was all he needs
loved this week panel!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
wow… i feel so bad that everyone on here seems to have extensive knowledge of American history… you guys get all the interesting people in your history!
*match* LOL MATH EXPRESSIONS! (2+3)-(4/5)=? XD
4.2, but what’s the question? 1/10th of the ultimate question?
42 isn’t the ultimate question, that’s the answer.
Yay! It feels like forever since one of these has been posted.
NOOO! Its jacked up!
Adorableness is it’s own currency.
Poor Max, he doesn’t even have a dollar…
…Implications? Last panel just could have been worded better, I suppose.
Well, it’s supposed to be ambiguous! You never know when the law might be watching!
More likely they can get away with going out back due to loopholes in the rule against selling ‘nip to pets. Perhaps the law specifies retail sales, so leaving the premise of the store changes the catagory of the transaction. Or perhaps it’s just a rule that stores volentarily impose on themselves (kinda like not selling R rated movies to minors), but the employees only have to follow the rule while on the job, not when they’ve left the property during a “break”.
You, sir, would make an excellent lawyer
it’s so cute it’s hurts
Could this be the return of the canceled catnip arc?
thats kinda what i was figuring
