He's just a sweet guy, can't say no to his girl. Though he can say no to the mouse in the form of a fruit basket.

Well, Fido may be a cat lover (*Shakes head...*), but he doesn't seem like much of a mouse lover...

Well what's not to love about mice? I don't get Fido's way of thinking!

I mean: they ruin all your food, and crap all over the place. They're all horrible smart perfumey poultine, have little to no respect for anyone or anything, and... from time to time try to start armed revolutions with the intent of killing all cat/dog kind.

Dude's a species! You'd think he'd be more accepting! Hmph D:<

Well, I think your being a little judgmental, there! I mean, look at how much mice have contributed to society! They've... Well...

Hey, don't be prejudice to mice! They keep the ecosystem in balance. What a world we'd live in if birds and snakes just decided to be vegetarians because all the mice were gone!

Still, the guy's lucky that he has atleast a semi-nice name rather than XPWR or something ;)

*There's no place like home, There's no place like home*

"Did Fox find out Fido's secret?"
"How does Spo know about Fido's 'illicit' cat-dog (♥♥♥) relationship?"
"Just how sexy IS Fido's police uniform?"

Find out in the next episode of Housepets!

Really, though, great comic, as usual Rick. I've been contemplating kidnapping you, and keeping you in a warehouse, where you do nothing but make comics for the rest of your life. then I can have them whenever I want.

Hahah, that speculating about future events is my job. xD

Did Fox hear Spo and Fido talking or just Fido talking to himself? It's unlikely that he didn't hear anything. So Fox could theoretically be aware of an illicit relationship or think Fido's schizophrenic. A third possibility is that clearing his throat is Fox's way of saying "hello."

Also, does anyone think Fido was referring to the name Spot in the previous comic? "I think 'Spo' is only almost a name."

Aww, is Spo saying he wants a friend? Maybe Fido is going to get a pet...
Also, I like the shading in this one. Rick hasn't done much shading before.

I don't think it's too far-fetched to assume that Spo wants friends. Doesn't everybody? Spo's only problem is his abrasive personality... which is presumably secondary to being a runt. Joey is (a little) weird; Spo is a jerk. x3

Hmm, it seems that Grape is having the most problems with this new art experimentation. The characters so far, Peanut and Bino, all still retain their cuteness and believable attributes from this. But Grape seems to just be all wrong compared to how we know her.

Maybe it's a cat thing? Peanut and Bino are easily distinguishable, and interestingly enough so are the rest of the dogs even if we havn't seen them in the new art style. With the few cats we've seen (I only recall Max as another major cat), there's not much to differentiate with the cats to see the difference, so some of the dog attributes go over to Grape.

Though I'm just ranting and typing at the same time, I'm not thinking this through entirly, but I'd suggest trying to draw up other cats to see if this is a species thing.

I concur with Jump; Grape's still a bit iffy to me.

He also brings up another good point: where are all the cats?

Merf, for some reason the new comic. I didn't like it, not trying to be liching or mean but I found it to be a little overdone with the words that are coming out of their mouth. But kay, by the way the reference to anything about "profecies" made me instantly think Guild Wars.... Huh.

3/25/09: And Now, You Can Never Unsee It
Why does the PG rating in your mind seem to get pushed whenever Joey shows up? Last panel is just hilarious. You know, I don't think we've ever learned what Joey's name is when he's in the catsuit. I wonder... (or maybe it's just the same)

Also, I like the name of the coffee shop, as well as the name of the coco drink that Joey is drinking.

might i just say that the expression on squeak's face cracked me up?

also kudos for making such a tiny, tiny character still look feminine.

i don't think this breaks PG, either. i mean from the position of the paw/tail that we CAN see, nothing risque has actually happened or is even in the process of happening. if anything, it looks like squeak got pounced/stepped on and joey's being like "oh hey, i caught you! now what?"

it's more peanut going "LALALALALALA DONT WANNA THINK ABOUT IT" than it is anything actually dirty, in my opinion. you kids got your minds in the gutter.

not to mention, PG means parental guidance. that means there can be jokes/allusions to adult concepts, as long as they fly over the heads of kids. you guys seem to confuse PG with G - G rated is disney-fied wholesome. PG is...well c'mon, rocko's modern life slid by at PG and that had a villian who had an udder for a head. not to mention a resturaunt called "chokey chicken"...

I totally agree. Now I can be rather perverse at times but I didn't think that this was meant to be perverse at all, the thought didn't cross my mind till I came here and read the above.

And about the strip, i loved it! whoodathunkit is great, and I can't believe it's not chocolate is amazing! I find it extra funny that I was having a conversation with friends about dogs and chocolate the other day :3 If this is what comes out of the new scripting style then definitely keep it up! Love what you've been giving us!

I know the arms in the new comic are from a perspective but they look sort of.. bad.

Also I think the crying face would would with 0 uncolored pupils instead of .'s way better o_o. unno. But good so far. I give it a thumbs up.

Last panel, Umm.... Peanuts crying face (; ;) where you had it in a 0 shaped eyes and the pupils were just dots, I think it'd work if the pupils were you know, rounded like 0 (zeros).

I don't know.

i think she means the shock-face with tiny uncoloured irises. like, er...

Image

//Edit: maybe not? :B

also merka, i think that's a foot...not an arm. like he's sitting in a chair, stepping on her. otherwise the tail would have to be extremely long.

which granted, it might be. who knows what his fantasy cat looks like, other than orange with a spotty eye!

Instead of incredibly shrunken pupils, more like 0 pupils, and for the arm being messed up, I'm talking about the first panel, it just looks weird.

Also the ゚Д゚ face should stay in anime, where it belongs.

I DO THIS I DO THIS I DO THIS I DO THIS I DO THIS I DO THIS I DO THIS I DO hold on wait what happened to Peanut's left shoulder in the first two panels.
I understand the third, but I think that considering that his hand is on his waist, it would emphasize his shoulder to the degree it would be visible past the backfluff. To be honest I couldn't really imagine that either. It would seem... too shoulder-y, perhaps. I think that's just a difficult pose to draw using that style. Either way, it doesn't really matter since this comic is pure, distilled truth. U:
Seriously, I do this with all of Fiona McIntosh's works. Ever. In her life. IT'S NOT MY FAULT I'M NOT WEIRD I SWEAR.

But how could Kurok involve himself with the cheetahs? I mean really, that's pretty much just saying a straight out, "Screw you!" to the hyenas, which is just a stupid thing to do. Imagine, Laughing Face and the Order both on his back! He couldn't possibly be that stupid, could he? There's always a logical explanation with Kurok, right? He's always been the wisest! Oh man, this can't be happening... Kurok... and how would he react to Urath? Did he ever find out that Urath even had a son? Hey, wait! That… that couldn't possibly..! No! Maybe Kurok... Urath's son... no, no I'm not letting myself guess anything before the nest book is out, I forbid myself!



you know what THIS NEEDS TO BE A REAL NOVEL
rick YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT NANOWRIMO



Hey come to think of it, have you made the noses bigger again? o 3o
Or have the muzzles just gotten slightly smaller, and the noses stayed the same? I noticed that in And Now, You Can't Unsee It that Peanut's whole body seemed smaller for some reason than the other comics, but then again Peanut is back to looking like, well, 'normal' in the latest comic. (BUT SMALL CUTE PEANUT IS SMALL AND CUTE AND AWWWWW <3)

I guess the phase "Everyone's a Critic" fits in perfectly here.

None of us are hating on your work rick... at least I'm not trying to. But the way you makes things at times is uber noticeable and I always end up blabbing about it. sorry. (Also I like the eyes they way they are just saying I remember you doing that before and it looked seriously better), was mostly the arm that got to me.
