It could be argued that the bird strip is creepier, since that bird never tried to get rid of her owners.

Well... I think that it goes without saying that most of the Joey ones are creepy. Especially the "I CAN NEVER UNSEE IT!"

Seriously, I can never unsee that one. Way up there on the creepy scale.

Not necessarily a bad thing.

Why is everyone talking as if creep and funny are mutually exclusive? Apparently no one here liked Invader Zim.

Exactly! Invader Zim was fantastic. It use exaggerated versions of people's stupidity and obsessions over certain things to get a message across while still being hilarious.

"Please don't hurt me! I've got a wife and kids and a toilet!"

I liked it, actually. Truth to be told, Vasquez conceived it to derive fun from creepy as well as downright disgusting characters and situations.

HP on the other side is, if I'm not seriously mistaken, not intended to be a second Invader Zim. Granted, while Rick introduced more dramatic story elements over the comics run it's still a gag-a-day comic based on cute personality traits, an overall light mood, moderate furryness and deriving fun from these.

But those two strips pose a quite big mood whiplash in my eyes. Out of nowhere come cats who imitate the cheap methods of arousal usually enacted by even cheaper Playboy wantons (the pillow fight stuff), one of them looking lasciviously over to Peanut, allusions to "certain activities" after Grape joins them, culminating in Peanut cooling down his neither regions.

Don't get me wrong, neither am I going ballistic about this or want to offend Rick or anyone else here, but even though they're canonically teens this goes against their personalities (they still have a rather child-like, naive side to them) and the comic's overall tone. And to be frank, there are always extra points for creepiness due to the worry over the possibility these elements could re-emerge and slowly take over the comic like the corruption observable in various other furry comics derailing into oversexualization.

While I believe Rick to be stronger than those misguided individuals, the possibility remains that the general approval of these two strips and the views they represent could lead to the inclusion of further such occurences in the story, what would always be detrimental to the comic.

That's completely understandable, and while I didn't find the mood whiplash to be strong enough for me to not like those strips, I can see why other people such as yourself feel differently.

And I was just using Invader Zim as an example of why creepy does not automatically mean not funny. Of course it's nothing like Housepets! It's just an illustration.

Liam makes a lot of sense, but is, in my opinion, overthinking the comic.

The last panel of the comic where Grape joins the barn cats in their slow-motion pillow fight.

I found that the barn cats one was not creepy so much as it was "uncomfortable" But still very funny. Actually, when you think about it all humor stems from either awkward, impractical, misinterpreted, or unexpected situations, so it would make sense for that to be funny because of it's awkwardness.

They don't need to wear pants, for they lack risqué parts.
