Just for the sake of whatever little is left of Marion's sanity, I hope that doesn't end up happening. :lol:

So, I guess this page confirms that the characters can in fact see things the readers cannot. In light of this new information, I'm just going to say that I hope none of the wolf cubs ever happens to develop a crush on anyone at that school...

In this comic? I'm not sure... I feel like there might have been foreshadowing cause someone did link a gag comic that was early on with one of the ferrets thinking that Scooby Doo was one since they were calling themselves "Ruby Roo" to Keen's chagrin.

I did link that comic, it's so nice that you remember! Makes me so happy! :D
Don't think much of it, though. Like you said, it was a gag comic, a pun strip made years ago. (And it's still just as good as the day it was posted :D )

Outside of it, there are others. As someone mentioned (a comic "Out-Of-Placers"), there is a main character in a comic that experiences this exact thing that drives the plot of that comic.

Oooh, found that comic in October. Didn't know someone else here read it!
(It's rated +18, though, mostly for potty-mouths and adult humour, so be careful.)

Still though, I was shocked at how perfect of a foreshadow it was... Even though we both agree it was most likely some one off gag. Obviously the idea stayed with Rick since then.

Yeah, I actually found that comic first... It got me into the mood for some more webcomics (or other media) involving transforming as a plotline, and found HousePets thanks to a mention about King's introduction on some trope website.

You must be talking about TVTropes in that case then. That is how I found out about the comic also. :mrgreen:

I found that site. You should see what they call Pete on the page they mention King. :lol:
Wow, Marion is already on the Housepets TVTropes page. They don't mess around.

It'll be interesting to see how Marion handles all this once things are less in flux for him.

Side note: I don't think we can rule out the coin just yet, but I have a feeling if it were involved, we'd probably know already this many strips in. At least having it hinted at. I don't know think Steward would be into breaking and entering a teenager's room just to test out some plans. It'd be much easier to test in other ways.

Marion is handling things surprisingly well, I’d be freaking out myself. Hopefully he can stay calm and find his way through this.

Fingers crossed, but if I found myself a squirrel in the morning, I'd flip, and even more so if what happened to Marion happened to me...!

Yes, more uncharted territory considering the ones who came before at least had some experience with Babylon Gardens weirdness, Steward for instance. Fox's reaction to King was...less than ideal. It could go either way depending on how open minded they are. So far Lois was not to keen on helping or believing him but hopefully that will change when she actually makes her appearance which still might be a long shot considering you know humans and all that in the comic, but at this point anything can happen. Fingers still crossed for a Detective Pikachu type scenario.

Fox's reaction wasn't ideal because he found out his best friend/cousin-in-law/brother-in-law was the guy that tried to kidnap him. Of COURSE he was gonna pound the daylights out of him. I'm surprised he didn't go further.

I am more partial to a classic pirouette, but your take on acrobatics is fine, too!

Honestly, I'm surprised he remembered the guy's face after, what? Five years?

I still love that scene so much. The emotion. The anger. The tears.
Yes, well, trauma sticks with you even after a long time. Fox never truly got over it considering his reaction when Bino just mentioned Joel's name.

Yes. In real life paws work on touchscreens, even capacitive touchscreens.

Yeah tons of other things to worry about at the moment really. I wonder where he would even go too first in this situation? Humans aren't going to believe him and a good amount of Pets aren't as well. Hopefully he can run into one of the few that would and would have some idea of what to do.
As far as we know, Marion is not aware that on average pets are more likely to know about magic(k), so he wouldn't be included to seek them out.

Is it odd that the first thing I notice is the impressive looking bathroom? Almost reminds me of a studio.
Any room can look grandiose if the frame of reference is the size of a squirrel.

I think that it looks big and very fancy even without Marion being the size of a squirrel at this point. It reminds me of a master bathroom.

Honestly, it looks pretty modest to me. My bathroom is arranged almost exactly like you see in the comic (even the same globe lights above the mirror!), and I live in an old small townhouse. It's just Marion's size that's making it look big.

Why not? It's not like this comic has shied away from inter-species dating. Kinda the opposite with the Fido and Sabrina, Joey and Squeak, and Keene and Breel pairings. There isn't much of an opportunity for the Babylon Gardens wolfs to find a wolf mate as Poncho pointed out. If a wolf does end up falling for one of his classmates, it technically wouldn't even be the first Homo sapiens-Canis lupus dating attempt.

That line of discussion has reached the end of its usefulness.

If you feel something may be inappropriate to discuss, try not bringing it up. It's great!

Has this line of discussion EVER been useful at all in any context that you can find?

Anyway changing the subject, I just realized why the mirror and the sink in the bathroom looks kind of familiar: it GREATLY resembles the sink and the bathroom in my grandmother's house. Only difference is that there is a toilet and a window to the right of the sink and her bathroom is green with black and pink tile.

What, shipping? *ponders for a moment* No, I guess you're right. Discussions about shipping haven't ever been useful (doesn't mean they're not worthwhile or fun :)).

Actually, shipping discussions are generally fine! We have never allowed, and will never allow, zoophilia discussion.
