I did this comic a while ago, and since a new iteration of Housepets is being integrated in starting Friday, I thought I’d get this in while it was still within style.
I can see actually using Karishad in this fashion. *giggles*
Also, I like the arrow indicating which way Tarot moved Kari’s ear.
Hit the gas! *pulls right ear*
No, no, the ears are for steering. If she wants him to go faster, she needs to kick his right shoulder, though with Kari, I suspect kicking his *left* shoulder may be more often required.
Leaning your weight on his shoulder works too though. Also, he started moving when she turned his ear, so yeah. >.>
I think the right ear is the throttle and the left ear controls direction; like those omni-directional forklifts that can spin in place. She pushed his right ear forward to move, and he was already pointed at the hallway.
Ok that looks fun! XD
It actually does… but, to be honest. If I be peanut, I would be very very very jealous about such a situation… hanging out is ok… but not in such a way with my own girlfriend… even when they are friends.
I wouldn’t really be jealous i mean as long as he doesn’t try anything.
This is Karishad! While he may not try anything romantic with Tarot, you can bet that he will ALWAYS try SOMETHING!
On an unrelated note, I’m wondering which side Karishad has taken – Pete’s or Dragon’s. And if he’s followed Pete, does this mean he’s a spy?
I doubt he’s with either. If any then I’d vote the Great Kitsune ^^
I dont know how I would react…but I would agree with I like your hat for now
Well, my friend’s girlfriend (who is also my friend) makes me give her piggybacks, so I can kind of relate to Karishad.
Though, she’s never used me as a motorcycle or step ladder before…
What about Penut’s relationship with Grape? Tarot doesn’t seem to mind all the cuddles, movie dates and other things between the two?
Vulpine Multitools, now on sale at Home Despot!
Warning! No returns, exchanges, or refunds!
Those poor, poor customers.
Those, happy, happy vulpines.
Vulpines seem to derive happiness based on the amount of mayhem they are able to cause. So, which is happier? The vulpine in a warehouse surrounded by forklifts, heavy objects, and power tools, or the one out in the world left to its own devices?
One thing’s for sure, though: CLEARANCE SALE
I would like to think that either is as happy whereever they can be.
Cleanup on ailse 3… and aisle 4, and aisle 5. Ooops. Crash cart to plumbing! We have a situation in the 8cm piping section!
Uhhh …. scatch all of that, evaquate the billding some idiot activated one of the mines in the explosives department .
(guy in the background)WHORAY!!!
“Why do we even have an explosives department?”
“The fox insisted.”
*holds up poster board*
Emergency Services, how can I handle your call?
Ok, Fire And Rescue should arrive in around ten minutes. Could I take some details please? Ok, so explosives were detonated inside the building? On purpose? I’ve alerted the police, expect them just after Fire And Rescue.
Look, crannk calls waste time I could be spending answering to real emer…
And you’re absolutely sure of that? You are aware that I have your position and will be referring it to the police for reference?
Right, I’ve just recieved a message from Fire And Rescue on scene. They have confirmed your story.
Yes, you can hang up now.
And they said working in a call centre was boring.
^^^^ All of you are hilarious.
We are all flattred dear sir.
WARNING: Known to spontaneously go into joking sprees.
Karishad and Tarot … that should be an interesting combination
The phrase “harmonious chaos” comes to mind.
Oh that is adorable.
Alt Text: Make motorcycle noises! Now!
Karisaki 750! She has good taste! :3
^ X3 HAHAHAHAHA
Favorite strip ever.
Oh Yea, Indeed.
Is that a *purple* light bulb?? Or maybe just a darklight?
And is the old one still on despite being unplugged? This would seriously not surprise me, actually.
…I wonder if ectoplasm fluoresces under UV light?
its not that the old bulb is still on, is the way it looks under the purple light (or black or whatever)
Its a purple light…hense the purple cat.
im pretty sure it’s a Halloween tinted tinted light bulb, just for effect.
Lol someone tried that once. . . They lost their two front teeth
Bit Kari is a a minion of Keene cuz he’s on his payroll and keene and Sabrina and enemies so wouldn’t that make Kari and tarot enemies?
Only technically enemies. Although getting help from Dragon may be like herding cats through the eye of a needle. Or something like that.
Lol but still
When you can herd foxes, cats are easy.
I really can’t argue with that
Although “loose cannon” is a much better description of Kari than “minion”.
Kari’s just in it for the shinnies.
Don’t try to understand Karishad’s motives, for they are surely unknowable! Or at the very least, understanding them will just made you very, very confused.
i suddenly don’t want to know what happens if Karishad doesn’t get his shinnies D :
I don’t think he’d actually mind, provided there be space for an appropriate pun.
I’m sure Kari is clean as a preacher’s sheets!
I like how that room, although frequently used enough for Sabrina to find Tarot there, is nonetheless filled with cobwebs.
how else do you expect a witch’s lair to be, exactly?
It’s amazing how many spells need a bit of spider silk.
there aren’t many ways to mass produce that, effectively.
Milking . . . But there’s a level of occupational hazard with that
I think they are decorating for Holloween
I do that all the time with my girlfriend <3
A new art style on Friday?
This is Karishad’s fault, I tell you! Bending the laws of reality and aesthetics!
I dont know you guys (and girls), but I´m super excited about this new stlye
I dunno to be exited or anxious…
Very cute! = P Now what they need are some more lighting effects, music, Halloween punch with dry ice, candy, snacks! The creepy old man greeting guests and handing out candy!
There something like that by me place esp my brother ether burns it down or strangel the old guy with he bag also I like your pic hound doom??
looking forward to the new style, do you have plans to update the character page with the new style and some more up to date info?
I’ll be updating the cast page when the WP 3 version of the site is finished
cool, definitely cant wait for that!
*somehow, all entries are Karishad*
Awesome! I’ve been hoping you would update the cast page for a long time.
Hi everyone,I’m new.
You know I’m surprised that Sabrina’s dad is ok with this.
I foresee a man running about with a shotgun, with much shouting of “Get out, darned varmint!”. I also foresee this being completely ineffectual.
tshh, with all the weird stuff she does now it would shock me if he wasn’t okay with it! ^,^
Sabrina’s dad obviously leads a peculiar life.
Have we ever seen Tarot and Sabrina’s owner in the main continuity?
When You think about it … no actualy.!. It’s vary supprising that we haven’t seen vary mutch of eny of thier owners. ^_^ (shug)
DARN!! I forgot the “r” in shrug, I hate when my spelling skills fail me!
Up until now Rick hasn’t even confirmed that they actually live together. Of course he could still say Tarot might just be visiting Sabrina’s house just like he always says Sabrina could be visiting Tarot.
Actually he did confirm they live together on the forum like last week or so, just that Tarot is not actually owned by Sabrina’s Dad. (nor is she owned by anyone actually.) She is a stray that lives with them basically.
But in the coyote story she had a dad.
No that was Sabrina’s Dad. From what I gather they later (because that story took place before Sabrina and Tarot met) found Tarot on the streets as they were traveling and took her home but never officially adopted her.
You start rescuing injured birds and mice, and the next thing you’ve got homeless pomeranians and foxes hanging out with you.
I guess Fido might be able to secretly take care of a stray mouse or bird, but a pomeranian and a fox is just too much.
An interesting development…Sabrina getting jealous of Kari hanging around Tarot. I’m not sure how that would effect some people’s theories that Kari is somehow in league with Great Kitsune.
I don’t see how Sabrina is Jealous here.
Well, her expression in panel 2 could be interpreted as “Well, I dont like this I feel exclude” or as “Why they are doing this if we have a stepladder for that sort of thing ?”
Considering what she says next its safe to assume its the second one.
let shipers ship i guess ;]
I didn’t mean to imply anything between Sabrina and Tarot other than their working relationship. A person can still get jealous of a third person suddenly intruding on that type of situation as much as one intruding in a romantic situation.
So….Pete snaps his fingers…Sabrina wakes up in her bed
Sabrina: Man what a dream! *Looks over to see Kari standing next to her bed grinning at her*
Kari: Or WAS it?
LOL I’D LOVE TO SEE THAT! XD
That would be epic! Cute and kind of scary lol.
Then Karishad snaps his fingers and Pete wakes up.
yanno, if they got into a “wake up ’cause you’re actually asleep” contest, that would end up confusing for all parties
We don’t need another paradox
Imagine them waking up together. Let’s talk about classic Doris Day / Rock Hudson moments ^_^
Those are fake, decoration spiders and webs right?
I’m gonna get bricked, but I could totally ship Tarikari.X3 totally. so darn cute!
I could get behind that ship they look adorable together.
meh….but the name of the ship is nice… Tarokari…heheh….like “Grapenut” you guys come up with clever names for your ships
I know that technically it should be “Tarokari” but “Tarikari” sounds cuter to me. heh. X3
Poor Tarot. Even foxes are bigger than her!
A new iteration, Rick? What does that entail?
It’s basically just an art shift, though it looks like there might be some pretty heavy character redesign, like Sasha for example (If you haven’t seen her new character sheet, vote on TWC)
Imagine. Hanners and Sasha in the same room. Cute overload.
… Dangit, now I’m imagining if Hanners could adopt Sasha. I mean, she can’t have animal pets ANYWAY and now I’m imagining crossovers?
Not sure if I should thank you or curse you…
PS: Make sure your crossover includes Emily. Dawwwww.
It’s nice to see two enteties of such silliness living harmoniously.
>XD Oh dear, this has made my morning >XD
Ha Ha! I love those lightbulbs!
OH lord that is so cute. *vroom* Using his ear as a control stick. Hehehe!
I love Tarot’s expression in the last panel, she looks like a kid in a candy shop
Hooray, new style! Can’t wait~ ^_^
And this is one of the best Karishad comics in a while. Tarot has never been funnier X3
TO THE FOX MOBILE
I want a fox to help me around the house like this!
Uh… No you don’t. Really.
Nicely done, Tarot. Nicely done.
So the new style will be used during a Halloween arc? Clever.
AND LET THE SHIPPING WARS COMMENCE!!
Maybe Tarot and Karishad will get together and then peanut and grape will be a couple(One can hope. But who would be with Max?)
Is Tarot blushing?
Or is that just the lighting…
Oh wait… no, it’s just the light.
I can see this fox becoming the avatar for the Great Kitsune. I just know it. If not, then he at least does something in relation to their RPG Powers. XD RPG POWERS. Powers rivaling those of Ness and his PSI powers, but with more variety.
They look weird when they change the light bulb.
It’s a colored bulb.
I know it’s a color bulb but when they change it the dog looks like if she’s drunk and it would it been better if the color of the dogs nose would be the same as her fur.
*sniffstheair* I smell something…a certain amount of fast moving drama between Tarot, Peanut and whatever the foxe name is….or my nose is just stuffed that is also possible…
Are they preparing a haunted house?
Good grief is it halloween already? Seems like only yesterday Tarot was showing Peanut how to fly a broom. We don’t celebrate the American holiday with such dramatic flare but any excuse to get dressed up and off to the pub is fine in my book.
I’m Tom Bodett from Motel 6, and we’ll leave the light on for you.
lol I could almost literally hear the squeaking lever noise when I saw the last panel. I love how Rick manages to make still frames have motion and sound effects
And no one made short jokes about pomeranians yet?
See Frank @ 2:29 above
*batman screen transition*
Can’t wait for the new style of Housepets, but I have to admit I really like this way as well
I CANT IMAGINE A BETTER ART STYLE!! (1 year later) I CANT IMAGINE ANO… wait…
cute, as per usual. I think I like Karishad more ever time he pops up.
I know this is way of topic. But Rick i has to know! what is your faith if you have one? (back to topic) panel 2 is so adorable almost as if their brother and sister
So, Kari is working with both sides now?
Nonono, Karishad is definitely on Dragon’s side.
As it stands right now, he’s working under Tarot
BRRRRRM BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRM BEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRM
Can Housepets stop being cute, or that cause a rip in the space time continuum?
On tonight’s halloween episode of “The Office” (US) “Here Comes Treble”, Erin the receptionist is wearing a dog costume with a red collar and bone dangler……co-incidence or might there be a “Housepets!” fan among “The Office” writers……?
I never thought I would agree with this opinion, but I’m starting to see things differently. welcome to visit my site: http://www.frdoudounem0ncler.com/
