HAL-9000 works for me, too - you need something "mega-creepy". Poor Peanut. High temperatures can't help, either.

Something tells me Rex knows how the Bigglesworths operate and has a fancy hand signal for them from what the background indicates.

Still think it would be cute if he was interested in one of them :3

… is it possible to be interested in just "one of `em"? Could get tricky with all those identity ambiguities.

I would think that you would have to tread very carefully if you were involved with one of them because the others could pretend to be that one and make things even more confusing. Plus there is the fact that you don't know which gender they are.

All you got to do is get a permanent marker, and then you can tell which one you’re dating. Though being serious, i think there is one Mr. Bigglesworth that you can tell apart from the others, the one that has glasses I think.

Rex was described as being able to tell apart coffee blends to a minute level. If this was by smell, perhaps he can tell the differences between the Bigglesworth clan by scent.

They wanted to him to leave so I don't think it was a matter of keeping him in as much as they couldn't get him to leave and stay away. Kari has special cartoon powers like Acme, we don't question it, we just accept it as is.

I love how you used the word "clan." They are the sixth Warrior clan. The Bigglesworth clan is a force to be reckon with. StarClan help us all.

I don't read Warriors, so happy accident right there.

Looking at Rex and Mr. Bigglesworth #? I have to wonder if this is going to be a theme during this arc. Random characters in the background doing whatever but no lines or actual purpose. That way we see all the characters on the roster and everyone goes home happy. :)

Do you wonder what the human's think about all this? So far it doesn't seem to have any requirements to join. I'm wondering if any human can walk in there and get in the water with the pets. Awkward but possible. :?

Don't want to be a good, but I'm more than half persuaded, Fen, that THAT'S just what our Rick is up to - everybody who's anybody (and somebodies who are nobodies) are going to put in at least a background appearance. Maybe even some of the humans. Could be this arc is our all-cast Christmas story.....

Let's see which long missing members show up tomorrow..... or not. ;)

Considering you have to be nude to enter, I think it will be unlikely they show up... though I’m never against seeing humans like The sandwiches or even Jeeves. Considering humans are one of the weaker things for Rick to draw, I know why we don’t see a lot of them, but it is shame that coin didn’t happen to be a plot device sooner because there actually is a decent amount of human characters in the cast it be nice to see on a more regular basis. Wonder if there’s any rules with that coin aside from “human touch coin, human now beast.” We only have two people who got effected by the curse, so not a lot to go off of yet, though I will point out, neither of the two transformations seen made the toucher into a creature that was a common housepet, so there could at least be a tendency for it to transform you into a wild animal, which would be a nice way to get some different species into the cast (prays for an otter to be coming soon... also prays people aren’t upset by how much I just typed)

These characters are just as naked as the ones in previous strips, but they don't look as naked to me, you know what I mean? I think it's because they're not as detailed; no chiseled abs.

Based on how they reacted when they thought Rock was going to take him away as well as their disappointment when he said he wasn't, I think the zoo wanted to get rid of Kari, but couldn't until the ferret, er opportunity, presented itself. They can't just put a fox out on the street, imagine the press they'd get (and the zoo animals might have contracts and/or a union). On paper Kari was sold to Milton so the zoo won't have to deal with his Wile E. Coyote esc nonsense.

As far as the naked thing goes, Mungo has the right idea about a robe or even a towel, standard hot spring etiquette.
As far as the coin thing goes I do wish it would have a larger role but at the same time I understand the complexity of trying to do it. First you would have to come up with an animal for starters (like you said what is the algorithm for who becomes what), then a design, color, THEN write a story for that character which opens a can of worms about how it will affect future stories. Top all that with randos on the internet (yours truly) trying to cross examine it and comment on it about how does this character now fit in to the world as a whole like we still don't really know what happened to Thomas (he said he was going to a zoo but did he?). After all that have people consistently ask about where that character is or why haven't they appeared in over a year or two (again yours truly). I would love if the coin make a reappearance and started causing chaos but then again that would go against the "slice of life" genre if it started making it too dark.

Serious answer, nothing unless a human picked it up out of the pool. Fun answer, the water starts to boil and bubble and any human in it would be affected until a time the coin was removed.

While we're on the subject there is something that has always bothered me. When Thomas touched the treasure he was wearing gloves so that would mean that it is not based on skin contact like you would think. I wonder if that was intentional or something Rick didn't think about. So Basically for any human to touch it they would need a grabbing arm or a shovel. They literally cannot make physical contact clothes or no. But there is also the thing Pete says (that I just reread) "human hands would never touch it so that would mean it would be soccer rules everything is okay except hands. So Thomas could have picked up the treasure with his toes and been okay.

Fun Fact: it was http://www.housepetscomic.com/comic/201 ... stitution/ which was the first strip I ever saw. After that I followed Housepets on Twitter but didn't actually read any of them until the epilogue.

Actually Fen, funny detail I thought to bring up but didn’t know how to yet, no animals have actually been seen touching the gold aside from humans turned into them as of this point. While we don’t see anything that would suggest it would have an effect at this point, saying it has no effect at this point isn’t something we can say for certain just yet. Just because we know the behind the scenes reason it probably won’t be able to do the reverse effect, maybe Rick can come up for an undesirable effect for pets if they touched it, like maybe you turn as insane as Kari comes across at times

Perhaps it only works on humans since a working assumption would be that animals would not steal it (just nuzzle it, like Sophie Camel).

I'm going to stick with what Pete said about "human hands". From a writing perspective having an adverse effect on literally any creature who touched it would be overkill and a nuisance to write. Plus would it affect humans already turned into animals if say they put it down then picked it up again? Would the effect change depending on who touched it and would it be random or consistent?
But you are right, not even in the first temple crashers did we see anyone touch the treasure. Weird. Jess looked like she was about too but didn't when Steward showed up.

Don't dare to risk a guess when, but that coin's got too much narrative potential for Rick to let it go. He may not raise it up for a while, though, but he had Badger keep it for some reason. I'm kinda thinking Mr. S has an assumption that the same talisman that turned him into an animal will somehow figure in his regaining his humanity.

Housepets has lots of unanswered questions such as Sasha's devotion to her abusive "Daddy" and these may never be explored. But like Keene's little demon chum, that coin is too rich a prop to abandon without a new chapter.

...and I'll bet we haven't seen the last of Thomas and Sophie, either.

How can something be never explored when it's already come up? Sasha is devoted to Mr. Hartford because she loves him and he provides for her. If you don't think that's enough, keep in mind that Sasha is easily pleased. If you still don't understand why Sash continues to be Mr. Hartford's pet and you think they shouldn't be together (what the term for the opposite of a shipper?), keep in mind that in real life it's not unheard of for a human to continue to date someone who's bad for them because they're in love with them and it clouds their perception. Also remember Sasha's a dog and doesn't want the exact same things that a human would.

It didn't say the curse applies when human hands touch it, it says the curse was designed to prevent human hands from touching it, so it just needs to be a little smart to cover all objections..

All true, Champ. But there's a story there with Sasha and Hartford and someday I'd like to see it developed beyond the givens... Unlikely, I'll grant.

Since it seems like Phil Hartford is just a minor character whom nobody really needs to know anything about, I'm pretty sure we won't find out more about him. At least, anytime soon.
