Towards cats at least. Rufus was even hinted this in the cast page back then.

Back in the genesis era of Housepets!, the "Barn Cats" appeared in the context of (a) apparently being females and (b) being attracted to a very hormone-rattled Peanut. T'would not have been unreasonable to assume (as Valerio did in his marvelous fanfic) that they had some backstory with ol'Roof.

But conjecture is just that, and that doesn't elaborate much on his smooching Maxwell. Grape may very well demand an explanation for us all.

Maybe some spiritual instinct told Rufus to give Maxwell a smooch...

Wowowow, how was it even implied he was in a relationship with the cats other than living on the same barn?

Thanks for quoting that as well ~ I forgot where i posted that :D

No proof other than the cast page mentioning that he mightbe into cats. How deep it was couldn't be elaborated on.

I think Rufus is just a troll, got to get your kicks while you can because you never know when you might die...wait...I guess he just likes to still get his kicks regardless.

Odd.

I'm sure I sent a post here, but it doesn't seem to be here. THe View your posts features doesn't show it. Maybe I forgot to hit send or something.

So again, (apologies if this did go through and I just can't see my own post.)

The last panel still does not show and end card, a small END or FIN. This suggests we still have some wrap up to do. But I wonder where that is?

We've seen Breel's closure
Seen the Heavenly Huskies' closure
Seen Dallas and the Nerds' closure
Seen Rez and Grape get closure, mostly, at the bus stop.
Seen Rufus and his team get closure, even if questions did arise
Tarot got her closure with Kitsune even if she didn't like it
Steward and Kari's closure came with them getting residency in the tree house

So who is left?

I suspect if may be Thomas and Sophia.

Okay, let's say thanks to Rufus for his participation in saving the world, but, what has he done to help you all? He has been hiding for most of the time... :P Don't way so about it, Rufus, because you can make Duke's wish desirable. ;) Aww, that's cute... :D But, it makes also wonder us: why that kiss to Maxwell? Rufus should already know Maxwell, in someway, and Maxwell is reminding of a Rufus... :roll:

Bandit1990 Wrote:
Kissing on the cheek as a greeting or farewell is a common trope for depictions of European cultures, esp. French and Italian.

Having never been there, I cannot speak for the reality of it.

I can confirm this. ;) Maybe Rufus has European origins, indeed? :P

Hm...maybe we should take this literally? Like, don't read into it, it was literally nothing. Maybe this is simply a sign that we worry and get anxious over the smallest details of the comic, and that sometimes things just just happen, and we should relax, and appriciate the comic as a whole, not the simplest details....

....


HAHAHA!!!

Who am I kidding, I'm from the Gravity Falls fandom! Over analyze everything!!! THIS IS THE SIGN OF A BUDDING ROMANCE BETWEEN RUFUS AND MAX!! OR MAYBE THIS SYMBOLIZES A KISS OF DEATH, WHICH MEANS MAX MAY BE IN A TERRIBLE SITUATION SOON! ANALY-

Step 1: Take character with very little known information
Step 2: Imply backstory with another character with untold backstory.
Step 3: Sit back and relax as fans lose their minds trying to figure it all out.

I really hope this leads to absolutely nothing just to mess with us lol

You sir, are the mastermind. We are mere puppets. I personally, however, don't mind being a puppet in this situation. Just sitting back and watching the world unfold can be a really enlightening experience.

Given the alt-text, I'm going to assume Max and Rufus had a one night snuggle that was lost from Max's memories in a haze of catnip... that was probably the cause of the one night snuggle.

Rufus, with his appreciation of felines spent some time with Max's mother. She always told Max about the kind country gentleman of the canine persuasion. Rufus always saw Max as a surrogate son sometimes helping from behind the scene, but always with credit from Maxie's mother.

So being that Rufus means he is the Rufus who made Max the tom he is today. The kiss was fatherly to the son he wished he'd been around for.

I really don't understand why Max wouldn't just outright recognize him, though? I think this is an instance where we should take the title text at face value, alas.

Remembering that the average life expectancy for pets is 10-12 years for dogs and 10-14 years for cats.

his advice on peanut winning over grape seemed too straight forward to be one of his pranks and had to come from somewhere, and the way the cats treated peanut implied they were comfortable flirting with canines. 2+2.

Hm, when was Sabrina's History of the World written? That stated that pets could see up to 40. In this case, the most recent should be accepted as canon, though for a long while I've been holding to 40 because of that.

Yours wins out by about 18 months. "dogs and cats [can] live up to forty years" is the standing canon. Rick Griffin said it is explained elsewhere why Sabrina can address the audience and can compare and contrast the worlds, but I've never been able to find it. Did he never get to writing that part or am I that bad at looking for stuff?

New post: Of course there is also the comic from a bit under two weeks ago where Breel says the average lifespan.Image
