Well … Max sure still have some ummm …. “feelings” for Sabrina
Aw, Grape loves to tease her man! :3
Well we now know that it wasn’t any kind of clean break up like people thought before. At least from Max’s side anyway at any rate.
Some deeply disturbing ones maybe! Although I wonder what happened between them to make him so touchy feely?
Max should be happy I hear her new boyfriend is a real dog.
Even after all the time that show’s been off the air where I am,I still remember it.
Maybe Max knows. That would certainly explain his animosity towards her. Although it could also have something to do with that haunted house incident.
Whoa, never realized there was some bottled up anger in Max.
I think it partly humiliation from when Sabrina made him tell grape that he was her ex-boyfriend
Little odd that he would wait till now to show any resentment for that, but it does make a little sense.
Also what Sabrina did -in the spirits in the “Scaredy Cats” arc- wanst very liked by Max
The anger seems to have to do with more of the Meatgrinder in this case, A.K.A the Spookmaster. Considering he knows Sabrina summoned him, he has at least one reason to not invite her, but I also thought it was eventually forgiven.
let’s test that theory, Max! call her, i dare you :3
Double dog dare you! Double dog!!!!
Did Max think Grape said “Is there something wrong with that?” Because saying “Obviously!” doesn’t make sense to me, unless I’m not grasping something.
I think I have a little proofreader in my brain that doesn’t let me see these things until others point them out…
Maybe it was meant as one sentence, with “Obviously” being punctuated for emphasis.
It’s how I read it too.
He’s going ‘Obviously!’ with some sort of wild gesture, then explaining that “I have a reputation to maintain’
Ok, obviously more issues there then most suspected there was.
Tiger is like me, only goes to parties for the food and doesn’t hide that from anyone.
DEFINITELY NOT HERE TO HANG OUT WITH CATS. NOPE.
HE WILL KILL ME IN MY SLEEP.
Well, that was disturbing, especially while I was listening to Run Like….Heck by Pink Floyd, which to me, somehow fits this situation.
I hope I didn’t get off topic…
I’m sure if Sabrina was angry with him or anything Max would have to run like that, or maybe at first when they just broke up she used her powers to do things that had him running
Glad to see Grape isn’t jealous. It (usually) takes a very secure personality to tease someone about inviting their ex! Or maybe just a silly one.
or maybe she’s one of the few ladies out there that don’t think there boyfriend would cheat on them and that there ex doesn’t want them back and plans to steal them back. though they are “pets” as well as animals so it’s not a stretch they’d would take such things the same way a human female would.
Agh! Off topic, but seriously, quit using ‘there’ that refers to a place. It’s ‘their’ that you want, as that one is for possetion.
I only use the one “there” I don’t care much for its meaning that I’m using wrong, don’t be a grammer nazi.

Don’t be hard on him, he included the required typo that makes every speeling flame ironically amusing.
And the fact that Grape doesn’t excatly have confidence in him, if you remember the halloween strip were they spent the night at a haunted house.
I’ve been in that situation maxy boy D:
So you’ve been a black cat with a grey stomach and a bitten ear? And you had a black cat girlfriend with the ability to communicate with spirits?! Dude… THAT’S AWESOME!!!
Haha I KNEW it!! You heard me right I mentioned on a earlier strip that I thought they’d invite them!
Dude I remembered the comment as soon as I saw the first pannel! I don’t really remember why though. =p
The Arbelts seemed like perfect candidates for dinner guests! And who else would help them finish off 60lbs of crawfish?!
- Plus as long as Bino isn’t at the party Tiger won’t get the urge to murdalize him.
no that’ll still happen…
But doesn’t bino live there? So wont they inevitably meet?
yup, first thing that came to miind when I saw the strip.
Well, I get the impression Max doesn’t like sabrina.
Well he was on good enough terms with her to ask her to scare Marvin and Zach for Halloween. The current anger may simply be because of literally scaring him to death (Well there goes life number SEVEN) and not because of the breakup.
(Yes, I know it was a joke).
I think he’s afraid of a replay of the last time he invited Sabrina to an event.
Those faces in the third panel are great.
Half dog party. Half Cat party. And one Rabbit.
I love noting your Avatar, Zaitsev. It reminds me I have another strip I need to check on.
Tiger looks like he’s got a small pot belly going on *snickers* ohh yeah…goood times, it’s nice to see the Arbelts again.
Where’s Res when you need him?
In Canada trying not to freeze to death! ….. I’m kidding who knows?
Maybe he’s writting the next chapter of Pridelands just so that he can impress Grape. Or even a new book that was inspired by Grape.
hm…. I have a new theory: Was that bite mark from Sabrina?
I was just thinking the same thing, though at this point involving Max’s ear I think Rick is leaving that up to the readers to draw there own conclusion to what happened to it, though I may be wrong.
YEASH! If thats what happened then… YEEAASHH!!
yeah, like mabey she accidenaly summoned a feral, hungry wolf spirit but un-sumoned it before it could bie anything else.
That’s what I thought too! Which can explain Max’s uneasy nature around Sabrina or the mention of her name!
max’s expression in the last panel.lol…i feel so sorry for him. i’ve been there once upon a time myself.
AT: “THI FRIENDLY RIBBING HAS GONE TOO FAR”
Grape hangs out with Max cuz she can taunt him with gusto!
I hate it when I run out of gusto.
Did anyone else notice Zach’s bunny tail in the 2nd panel?
Yup sure did! :3
Uh? Zach? Do rabbits eat crawfish now?
Huh i’m not really sure? Maybe he’ll just eat soup/salad, ya know something other than the tiny crustaceans.
Ahh the ever so elusive Ponbon Furret, HI RICK!!
Mr linderbergs dog? Never heard that one before
If you were paying attentiom to the character sheets released thus far, you know who that is. :3
Hint: The dog in Kitch’s avatar has something to do with it.
oh, I don’t really pay attention to names theses days.
Answer: Fox and Fido. =3
Fido isn’t one of Bills dogs.
Its Fox and Bailey
OK, so i backtracked and forgot there’s someone else besides Bill that manages the dogs, so you win this round. =P *tosses a sandvich*
I’m actually more curious on who this Mr. Lindberg is
Also that second panel text seems a bit strange “Whats wrong with that?” “Obviously!”
It seems like he changed what they were saying halfway through typing out that response.
All in all guys i’d say the new style looks Perty’good on the Arbelt clan. Although I can’t help but think that Rick drew Marvin’s face a little “wider” than the other two cats.
That’s okay! I”m sure she’ll do it for you!
Wonder if Bailey will invite King…
Doubt Bailey is here. >.>
no Grape said Mr. Lindburg’s dogs
Bailey is living at the Lindburgs now she is there
Hard to say. She could be with the Miltons now. But I just think If Bailey came to the party, no doubt King would show up.
If that’s the case, Maxwell’s cat party just became a wedding party of a sort @_@
Bailey is listed as ‘Bailey Lindberg’ and Max spoke about the Lindberg dogS, so she must be in.
Let the wedding party begin!
I won’t argue the idea of a sudden wedding celebration party would be in Maxwell’s favor. I just can’t stop thinking about Max’s luck with things. First Sabrina, now this. It’s like anyone owned by Jeff is bound to have their plans fail X3
Huh. Guess… yeah, the cat half of the cast is a bit lacking in comparison.
Counting Mr. Bigglesworth as a single composite super-entity of course. Because we all know the truth.
Oh snap ~ Tiger is here. Where’s Bino?
he left with MEGA-ball!
*Don’t start that again!”
The ULTRA ball is only $8.45 from Amazon!
What? the price isn’t in pokédollars?
Is it just me or is this new style very Tom and Jerry? xD
Well you Could say it is…in a way. Most people draw a comparison between the new style and newspaper comic strips. I personally think the new stuff is inspired by Calvin and Hobbes.
anyone else think sabrina’s going to just showup next comic?
No doubt about it. She knocks on the door and says ” Hey sorry I’m late. Yesterday I read on the crystal ball that Max was having a party and I almost forgot.” Or something like that.
That’s more Tarot’s speed.
No. Tarot would be knocking on the door the moment someone mentions her name. Sbrina on the other hand takes few hours or days to answer the person who mentioned her name.
Followed by a facepaw by Max
I wonder why he’s still afraid of Sabrina… …he must have done something really bad again XD
Well, either this is an occasion to see Fiddler and Keys do something else than music (since the night at Heathcliff), or we could see more of Jasper at last.
All of them would be fine choices!
My vote’s on Fiddler and Keys. I miss them.
I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t noticed the comic is somewhat back to its’ original style. Thank you Rick; the compromise make for an awesomely edgy appearance.
If I find out that Grape invited her dads employee, the tanuki. I’m gonna flip the table, do a barrel roll, jump all over the place and sing the song Hound dog.
Tee-hee-hee. He called Grape ‘Hon’ =3
I thought I was reading Valerio’s fic for a sec back there
methinks there was some sarcasm in that ‘Hon’…
There was, but it’s still cute and funny. Hopefully next time he calls her something more proper and lady-like, there won’t be any hint of sarcasm =P
Tiger is the only one that is rather chubby (thing that has sence afterall) or is the angle
half dog, half cat, half rabbit party.
Don’t worry Max, the meatgrinder thing still hurts less than grinding your pride.
Is it me or Marvin’s eyes seem a little too separated?
1. Dog, cat, rabbit, this party needs a fox!
2. They seem to be about the same separation as Grape’s, maybe they look further because of the fur pattern.
Ferrets and Wolves might work too. Woodland creatures face the risk of brooms to the face.
Oh well, more new art style characters!
I had one specific fox in mind.
i doubt they’ll invite him, might show up uninvited if rick feels like it though
Invitation? Him? Please.
Maybe Rick will make a joke about Tiger, and Fox (~maybe Joey~!?).
Because they are both dogs with less than dog sounding names.
Remember Tiger has a trauma with that.
Oh i remember, thats one of the main reasons that Rick should consider it!!
I wonder why Max and Sabrina broke up in first place?
Does Zach have a significant impact on the cat:dog ratio in any way?
Oh, so Max used to date Sabrina, eh? XD
That’s not exactly a secret…
first mentioned back in the haunted house bit, i believe it was somewhere in the 30s(going by arc not page)
Is this going to be a naked party?
Man, that’d be painful for a while! Especially with nine lives!
Who says Max even has nine lives left? Maybe he’s already lost a few lives or worse, he’s already living on his last live!
He probably lost one when he got that chunk taken out of his ear
DIRECTOR: Ok, Maxie, that was a good shot, but you have to work on your expression. It’s too funny. You are angry at Sabrina, remember? More anger, Grape is teasing you too and you HATE it… Excellent, just like that! Now…Uh, Maxie? maxwell, you can say your gag now. Max..? *sigh*, Ed, call animal control.
boy does marvin look different. tiger looks the same and zach is just cuter now
no, Tiger got a pudgy belly now
What’s up with the BG, I like minimalist, but you will find NO house-walls in a neighborhood like that.
The walls look like Rick wants them to look. :3
This reminds me about that strip where they were in one strip, with sabrina preparing to scare Max later that night
I agree wholeheartedly with Tiger; if theres a party with free food, expect me to be there.
