xD I love it!~
And once again, Max´s grin is wonderful
Of Course! Max has the slyest looking grins!
The reaction from both Grape and Max alone made my day. Their amusement was satisfying, but their grin and tone… X3
there’s a nice chemistry goin’ on there, yush!
How do you know the tone they are using? There’s no sound in this webcomic!
Unless… “gasp” You were there, weren’t you?!
Through actions and words, my friend!
so true, Cobra.
Max has REALLY puffed up with victory, hasn’t he?
Alt Text: “All I remember is straw, straw everywhere”
So peace after all? lol
Or is it? Remember, grape has bumped into falstaff before (or was that truck), and now that there at the dinner table, it might get intresting.
I’m fairly sure brooms to the face were involved.
On that note, I loooove the alt-text on this strip!
Actually, I’m pretty sure she met both falstaff and truck.
With the art style being so different back then, who’s to say it was either of them? All Grape called them was just “COONS!”
They remember her.
Wouldn’t you remember someone doing THIS? http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/11/20/none-shall-pass/
Not sure that’s Falstaff, not enough malapropisms. It’s certainly not Truck.
Again, I didn’t see that coming.
really? i didnt predict zach would be involved but i could see them being let into the party
Why would they invite Zach, anyway?
comic relife? naw, that’s max’s job.
I did! I predicted they’d get an invite! I win!
Also “you guys washed these, right?” is perfect.
The alt text is a bit obscure for me, though.
Doh. Broom. Straw.
Punch-line and alt-text, along with Zach’s statement, really complete this strip!
You’ve spent too much time with synthetic-bristle brooms
That … went better than expected
the sweet irony
Yeh, they had planned to steal the crawfish sooooooooo long and all they had to do was show up to the party.
Grape and Max in the Last panel: Priceless keep doin’ good work Rick!
Yooo, woah woah! Max is semi-feral?! The raccoons think they know him?! Zach is a vegitarian?! WHEN WILL THE CURVEBALLS END?!
I think the racoons were referring to Grape. Probably why he said ‘distressingly familiar’.
Please don’t kidnap me ._.
Alt. Text: Please don’t beat me with a broom! Or the Crawfish.
Actually it’s: All I remember is straw, straw everywhere
But I like your version better XD
Was a little unsure of the definition of alt. text. You learn something new everyday, right?
What if you put the crawfish on the end of a stick and call him Mr. Pinchy?
My class once put a picture of Will Smith on the end of a meter stick. We called him Will Smith.
Either that, or Max likes to *think*of himself as semi-feral.
Of course Zach is a vegetarian. He’s a herbivore.
Lol what is a hurr-bay-vorr? Is it a new meme? o:
Also texadaeus… OH HAI, I SEE YOU HAVE 7 NOTES….
of course the racoons know about Max…The Haunted House
GOOD MEMORIES :3
Zach is a rabbit. He’s a herbivore. Vegitarianism is a choice humans can make because we’re omnivorous.
Distressingly would be putting it lightly.
“and in the deepest depths of his mind, in the darkest places where nightmares hide, the face of grape the cat slithered through the darkness”
DONT TRUST HER FALS! RUUUUUUN!
Broom, broom everywhere XD
Oh, for the Brooms
Must dodge them all
Before I fall
Please don’t hurt me
Brooms are all I see
Please, oh please
Before I get
By your brooms of death
Why do you continue?
I’ll leave your Garbage alone!
Never Come Back!
This is an interesting twist but grape has that grin like she is gonna pull out the old “Broom to your face” trick xD
If you look in the second panel you don’t see grape so I think this would be the opportunity time slot of where grape retrieves the broom but that’s just my idea xP
Nah, she sees the positives of having ‘real ferals’ being there to liven up the party.
Zach should have his own party, with lots of carrots!
Somehow the woodland creatures would all find out, and they would all try to come in!
They recognize Grape. That’s a good sign.
Man she really must have done a number on them! The shock of getting a Broom to the Face must have Falstaff suppressing memories.
Also the time where she stared them down, and won, to get in Pete’s Temple.
Hey, doesnt somone win a heck load of stuff for betting whats gonna happen? I wasn’t in the comments section at the time, but I think I remember reading in the comments somone betting on this outcome…
[pockets 400 Quatloos and strolls away whistling]
You’re getting more than that my friend.
I made the bet that this storyline would have and outcome, but something tells me this arc is not quite done yet…
I think I’ll accept my win, made of, now. No, nobody has said the crawfish are spoiled, but Max kindof said that they’re bad for him, so it counts, right?
Wow they really don’t immediately recognize Grape? I’m surprised Grape doesn’t recognize them. Maybe it was that growth spurt Fals had or that candy binge Truck had.
Nope. It’s been a year since the raccoons and Grape saw each other.
A year OR MORE! Still, I don’t know if Truck was there, as the the other racoon in the old strips looks too tall and thin to be him.
Maybe he was on a stool?,
and maybe he gained weight?
She hasn’t yet said if she recognizes them or not. So whatever she’s going to do, it’ll be completely surprising
Havana all that planning and trouble when they could of just asked. XD!
Careful where you point that crayfish, Truck.
It’s so sweep to see you again.
There’s plenty of broom in this party for them.
Great fun Feral.
So many puns, sooo tired tonight.
I think they’ll have to DUST of the spare chairs… what, does no one use a broom to sweep dust off things here?
A rag, a duster, or my hand. Most often I don’t even bother, though.
Straw to your face!
Oddly enough this kinda ending seems too fit the comic well, Crawfish all Around ! (Except for Zach for obvious reasons).
I wonder is this the plan of Pete as well? Or is it random hiccups in the world that are bringing animals and humans together and claimed as an action by parties that would benefit?
AT – All I remember is straw, straw everywhere
The openner ot the way get faith from two ferals.
They must have done that “all hail” thing off-stage.
Somehow I doubt it… otherwise they might have been thrown in the trash can instead of invited.
Wait, that was a guest strip… but it was included, so is it canon?
They did that in an earlier draft of this arc but it didn’t really fit this story so I left it implied
And it seems that Truck has eaten his crawfish whole. Ah Truck
Poor Zach, how inconsiderate of them to not tell him about the theme of the dinner party!
At least he was invited! XD
Bunny invited into a carnivore party…
*Doo doo doo doo*
*doo doo doo doo*
You are about to enter another dimension…
wait, semi-feral? I didn’t know that max had some feral in him (or is that just a lie).
Could be because he is more accustomed to life outdoors, cats like to roam wild after all.
since he was a kitten, he hated wearing the collar. He’s too tough for domestication!
I think he just means the way people view him.
It’s not that his father was a feral cat (though, hey, might have been. Who knows), it’s that he’s not some indoor cat getting fat on luxury can-food while stretched out over soft pillows
He’s got a safe place to stay for the night, most of the time, so he’s not FERAL per say, but unlike Grape his owners aren’t treating him all that nicely either.
Well, You know the lesson loyal racoons: stealing may be nature, but completely unnecessary
It’s not a carnivore party! Vegetarians totally eat fish all the time!
What’s that you say? Hypocrisy, you say? Ludicrous!
The opposite of “carnivore” in this context is “herbivore”.
I was simply poking fun
With a stick?
Poor fun. I didn’t think he liked sticks.
Falstaff, just how MANY purple cats did you meet in your life??
Well there was Princess Periwinkle…
Seriously, who would name a kitten Princess Periwinkle? Oh, wait:
Zach looks shorter and fatter than usual…
A tad more padding suits him well. Poor guy’s way too skinny
^ For those missing what this is a callback to.
Now Falstaff and truck can brag they were invited to a party by the Opener of Ways! They are gonna get all the raccoon chicks!
Got that right. They can now have children who to tell that story so that they can pass it on to their children and so on.
150 years later.
Truck jr. ” Have I ever told you kids the story of my ancestor who got invited to the sacred temple by the Opener of Ways.
Heh had a feeling this would be what happened.
Gotta love Max!
ALAS!!! MY PREDICTION CAME TRUE!!!!
*rubs crystal ball*
what will happen next though…………
Huh. No opener of ways shenanigans? Guess Falstaff and Truck aren’t observant of it.
Rick mentioned above that he had originally planned to include that, but it didn’t quite fit, so he left it implied that they hailed the Opener of Ways off screen sometime.

But well deserved, Sir!
*Gives a sphere of believability*
Don’t you mean “skulking”?
I didn’t even notice it was sulking until this afternoon. I figure either one works. They could be sulking because every attempt to get food failed.
In the Housepets universe, it seems the community thinks like us, for we, too, think Max is a mysterious semi-feral.
hey, it works miracles on his cool-effect! (and his toothpaste too)
Thus we have our “broom to the face” reference.
…wow, considering that Max is sitting, Zachary is pretty smaller!
I think he said something about that.
Hey, you look different without the broom in the face!
Truck: No, you did
ANOTHER WHAM! XDDD (Seriously, I would call this a twist. XD)
…and then Bino comes and spoils the party to chase after the coons…
I hope he doesn’t do that
Truck and Fals are too cute to chase!
Zach is so noble tho, someone get him a cookie carrot
Maybe a carrot cookie? (What? There is such a thing! Just take the recipe for carrot cake and remove the water!)
You need *some* water to make the batter, right? Or can milk be substituted in place of water?
Cookies are generally made without water. Butter is used for the role. (Note that I said generally)
but I don’t know if that’s how they made them, to be honest. The ones I’ve had were a gift. (And no, the person who made them isn’t around so I can’t ask them)
I like Zach. Bunnies are cute, cuddly and white meat.
where is ma broom?
At Grape’s house
Now the raccoons can finally rest and have fun in the party.
Well look at that, it all worked out in the end <3
Twist ending on Friday: It’s all an ‘odd couple’ movie by Rock.
That would be so hilarious!
*gets dragged away by jeeves for figuring out*
Yeh, but Rick already did that twist, so it won’t happen.
I can relate to Zach. I hate carnivore parties.
Grape has the bst ideas, especially when the idea is VIOLENCE
Oh you non meat eaters, always getting uppity cause meats are around~ XD
Anyway, yay, more guests! And sticking to the cleaning habits I see. Almost like a germophobe. XD Those darn feline grins are so awesome, too. I need to work on mine a little. XD
OH MY GOODNESS
No seriously, you have no idea how hard I just laughed.
Now that I think about it… HAVE we seen those two before this story arc? XD
‘You look distressingly familiar” XD ‘oh…hi…grape….fancy meeting you here…(don’t hit me with a broom please) D:
