Since I read this comic, it makes me miss my childhood a little less.

It reminds me I'm awfully childish.

.......

Uhm, but it's still really good-looking, of course!

I can be childish sometimes also and one of the times I am is when I read this comic as it really reminds me of my youth!

I enjoy the comic strips more about Kevin, but I like the whole comic as a whole.

Over the past 6 months, I have fallen deeply in love with Housepets, the story, the emotion, the way it never loses its narrative, the way it maintains that Slice-of-life scenario, and even tackles complex storylines beautifully.

In fact, I have been working on fixing up the Housepets wikia, so that there will be a place where fans can go and learn more.

Rick, you are an inspiration, a wonderful artist, storyteller and visionary. I humble beneath your ability to create beautiful, relatable characters and how you maintain a strong fanbase 7 years later. You sir, deserve all the praise you get.

Rick Griffin truly is a masterful artist who deserves awards for his work. I know I have some trophies around here I can scribble his name on.

Thank you so much for the amazing comic! I found this comic by accident and I read every single comic in about two and a half days and I feel in love with it more and more each strip I read. King reminds me of me so much that it's a little scary, that's why I chose this username for this site. I really need a avatar for my account. I can not thank you enough for this amazing comic.

Rick has created an awesome comic, but it is better than most realize because of who it attracts. These forums are a nice hidden place on the net, full of great and creative people who all just enjoy a comic and each other. I like this forum and all who are a part of it because of the community that has been built, and am proud to be a member. Thank you Rick, for your own natural style and flair that has attracted such a great group of people.

Yeah, thanks to Rick and this forum I've been able to be more bold and even started trying to be more creative. I've also meet some nice people and have found out a lot about my self. All thanks to Rick's comic and this forum, I just realized how much that means to me, it means a lot.

Get well soon Rick! :(

I appreciate all your work, Monday's comic made my entire week (only an hour into it as well), so I won't be too disappointed with a few days off.

This comic is very well written and drawn and I believe is much better than a lot of the comics that I see in my daily paper. It's cute without being cloying and clever without being condescending. Bravo Rick!

A steady hand is all it takes
To make a painting shine
A singer's mouth is all that's needed
To bring the air a chime
A conscious mind is all that's required
To formulate a rhyme
But of all the things touched by light
I think that you will find
Most difficult by far is to bring life
Into the bright sunshine

Sometimes it seems so little
Grape jam and peanut brittle
A moment of spare time
The Fate of a tinkling cymbal
But you see,
Hearts are not given to things
As a marriage under a steeple
We cannot Love a drawing
But Rick, you made people



*Not a great poem, but I wanted to put some work into it, to say thank you for the work you put into this world that I have enjoyed exploring so much.

:D Hey Rick! I simply wanted to express my utmost gratitude to you for the years of amazing story, characters,and art!

Seriously, i cant begin to explain how much this comic has influenced me through the years.
Witty humor must come naturally to you because i could never come up with such great comebacks and twists
on such a regular basis. (Is very envious :o )

i love your work and hope that you will keep Babylon Gardens buzzing for years to come!!
:D
