especially the one on Pet Fancy
$5 says it’s a Milton on that cover.
no, I’m pretty sure it’s Sasha stuck in a body stocking…
i don’t think it’s sasha unless the arms and legs of the body stocking were dark brown…(and theres a light brown streak across the eyes…)
it was a joke…
Simon’s alt. text in cast: “Okay so most recently I posed nude on Pet Fancy”
He wasn’t bluffing
ikr…i enhanced a copy of a selection of the comic of the pet fancy and it does match up to simon about 98%
Grumpy Peanut expression is awesome !
But I thought Peanut was so GOOD at the vet!
Maybe he didn’t get the same vet
A needle hurts, no matter how much you smile.
Dis temper’s gotta go!
Perhaps a more Tempered reaction is called for?
Dont be Tempted by a Temptress!
He can only aTTempt to cool down now.
ahh I kill myself.
I agree, Peanut makes some of the cutest expressions.
Sweet! A new arc begins! : )
Im confused. whats going on here?
oh wait, now i see!
I think he just forgot the one-off tag again.
Well now you need a shot for datemper!
Looks like they got hteir annual checkup.
Also, I hate shots. HATE them.
Yeah, I wouldn’t like to get shot either.
I vote we ban all needles for they are the tools of evil mad men.
…and lifesavers for diabetics, and bee sting allergies, and blood donors, and those who need emergency adrenaline…
Ohhh the vet … how wonderful
Heheh classic joke. The faces are great
Mr. Bigglesworth #74 looks worried.
I would be worried too and how many mr. bigglesworth are there? o.=.O?
I guess Pet Fancy finally got permission from the rest of the ferrets to publish Simon’s photoshoot. Naughty weasel.
Maybe the ferrets BOUGHT Pet Fancy´s franchise
They would only do that if they didn’t want the naughty collarless photos published!
P.S. for those of you who are confused, the Cast page has alt-texts too. Shhh…
It doesn’t say “Hi I’m Daisy”!
True, I feel betrayed.
Bigglesworth looks worried… I must be off panel somewhere…
Give it 5 minutes.
Mr. Bigglesworth has no glasses :O
Contacts! Maybe laser surgery did the trick or he simply didn’t wear them today!
That gave me an idea, what if they’re using colored contacts; they can finally distinguish each other and still continue messing with other people.
o.o yes. so much yes.
Just how many colors can Siamese cats distinguish between?
Maybe THATS the reason he (or she) is in the vet´s clinnic
Is that one of the milton ferrets on the magazine?
Where can you subscribe to “Pet Fancy?” :3
And now Mr. Bigglesworth looks worried.
Well, Grape, would you rather have light symptoms of distemper or the full blown stuff?
Ah, a new arc.
I wonder what happened. o.O
Look out bigglesworth X, YOUR NEXT >:D
It’s that or the cone.
Peanut and Grape are pretty tough to take shots by themselves kind a like my dog.
“And after all that, it looks like distemper got them in the end” !!! Hahaha!!! XD
I groaned pretty audibly at that alt text…
I was half expecting Karishad to pop out and say it. Hehe.
Wait till next week when we find out that Con-gress is the reverse of Pro-gress.
Why must Peanut’s grump be so cute.
angry-peanut face is adorable
Ok ow poor Grape and Peanut >3<
AAAAAAAAAHHHH THE CUTENESSS!!
THE HORROOOORS!!!! *feints* Oops, sorry just saw a bug. *looks at screen* UNBEARABLY CUTE GRUMPY FACES!!! *feints again*
Wait a minute! Did Peanut and Grape go to the vet WILLINGLY!!!???? Without being tricked!!!!???? What the heck is going on!!!??
It never showed how they were when they got there. Probably decided not to fight it when they saw where the car was headed.
Or maybe their parents took them to the vet when they both were taking a nap. That’s why they’re grumpy.
I would guess all the Bigglesworth cats take their shots simutaniously. Unless there’s one super healthy Bigglesworth. =P
maybe he’s a new addition to the Bigglesworth clan, and hasn’t had all the shots the others have had?
You know? I just realized we’ve never seen a Houspets! animal with any of those diseases specific to their species. After looking up the details on distemper, I’m kind of hoping we never do.
*insert cheer for the vet here*
Well hey. I don’t even know what dog or cat breeds most of these charcters are so stop making thing more complicated.
If that’s the face Peanut makes when he’s grumpy, I wonder… What would Peanut look like if he was furious. I mean so furious that he would actually look like a mad dog. And what could make him furious? Oh man! Now I can’t stop thinking about it. Thanks alot brain, thanks alot. >:(
As someone that works in a veterinary clinic, I find this humorous. :3 Gonna have to show coworkers when I go in next
In the UK vaccinations tend to go in the scruff of the neck. Do vets in the USA go for the butt instead? Or does this just make for a better comic effect? :3
I am guessing comic effect. My vet alternates places because it was discovered that giving the shots in the same place all the time increased the possibility of cancer in that area.
Actually, they’re given in different areas so that if a vaccine-site sarcoma is to form, we know -which- vaccine caused it. :3 Combining injections in similar limbs does not actually increase the possibility of a vaccine reaction.
Children are usually given their shots in their bottoms. Since these pets are, well, you know
All my shots (that I can remember) were given in an arm. I think not all in the same arm, but I don’t remember ever getting a shot in the exploding Pinto.
It depends on the type of injections. SC (subcutaneous) injections, those that go under the skin, usually go in the scruff of the neck. IM (intramuscular) injections, those that go in the muscle, will usually go in the behind or the outside of the thigh. The type of injection will vary according to the substance being injected and the “filler” substances (those substances used to bulk it out to a useable quantity).
I’m a vet so I gotta know these things. =)
Yes, vaccinations are a pain in the… but… distemper is a lot worse…
Al’’s well that ends well.
Shots are something you never want to get behind on.
So that’s what they mean by injecting substance into the plot.
Well, when you’re a cartoon character, one does end up being the butt of the joke.
So you can encounter single bigglesworth?
Surprisingly there isn’t one everywhere you go to^^
Maybe he was ill at the last family-visit… or the doctor refused to do all of them at once…
I just noticed there is at least one speech bubble breaking through the strip for the last couple of posts… how about making larger strips?^^ I would enjoy the extra on background.
He’s been doing that for quite a while now (years, in fact). I think it’s safe to assume it’s how he does that
Did Peanuts tail got shorter? Cause I don’t remember it being that short.
Perspective is evil
Shooting down Distemper always leads to dat-temper?
I had one bit of advice for Peanut–>http://www.housepetscomic.com/comics/2009-01-30-hello-vet.png
(panel two, btw)
That hurts even on my bumper O.o
too funny! i hate shots. i cringe at needles. hate em. love the expressions too. and thats a ferret to be sure there. i think.
To me it sounds like the title of this one is an Ozzy Osbourne reference. I could be wrong, but I just wanted to say that.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen peanut so grumpy-looking before. It actually kinda’ suits him!
As for Grape, same old same old. Just look at any time Peanut wakes her from a nap!
They went willingly this time. They thought a booster shot would give them rocket boosters.
Um… what’s with the “18″ on the “Pet Fancy” cover?
Well, in there is Simon´s session of collarless pictures so …
Also, Alfred Hitchcock’s silhouette in the window above the trash can, and wouldn’t it be more likely to be Lana if it’s one of the Milton ferrets?… that pose…
