Everything's resolved. Everything came a bit fast and is still a bit confusing, but it's resolved. or is it
And who wouldn't be up for a saucy Pridelands RPG session?

Max, always the voice of reason and the voice of the easily distracted. But in all seriousness though, Pridelands RPG tell me more. :)

The fact that the saucy joke is still making it's rounds warms my heart. Still the best joke ever.

It's not over yet, though. Which means, unless the arc is going to end just in the next page or so, the actual weird bit is yet to come.

Something about this has always bothered me. Res should have gotten a good bit of cash from the movie rights from his book(s) but he still can't afford a plane ticket.

Unless pets aren't allowed to buy plane tickets themselves, never mind actually take a seat.

I think the Polyamorous relationship between the four of them is meant to be the weird ending here. I mean there could be one last twist or the arc could go on another week but I don't think either is likely. I mean it is possible though, what that twist would be at this point (outside of my dream possibility that I brought up the last page, which I think is unlikely mind you) I have no idea.

Actually, they are still there. Otherwise, why else would there be a half naked Mungo walking by in the background a few panels ago?

Maybe he’s kinda like Scrooge McDuck and while he definitely has the money, he’s pretty stingy about paying for it when anything cheaper is available

I thought it was a commentary on the price of airplane flight by saying even if you write a fantastic book series that gets movie adaptions, you still won't be able to afford a seat. If you want to start a discussion about that strip, there is a thread for that.

Max and Grape were at the spa, they left the spa, and then they returned to the spa.

It’s all OK when it’s just fantasy,
as then it’s just all in the mind
and those who think this is a play
to bring up Res are being unkind.
Everyone has a new life on paper,
leaving the real world on its’ own;
the fact they can accept others in it
show just how some cats have grown.
Saying RPG without fear of geeks
shows just how much Grape rocks;
but it does leave one question there -
where was she keeping that box?

Fox: You know, Mungo. It just occurred to me.
Mungo: Yeah, Fox?
Fox: We're still in the bathhouse.
Mungo: What do you mean?
Fox: Well, it feels like we've been here for like, four months.
Mungo: But we've only been here for a few hours!
Fox: I know, right?!

Well, the arc is over yet, but it looks like it’s wrapping up. It’s kind of weird but Rick did say the ending was going to be strange, so there you go. They’ve all worked on their relationships, and while they may not have been totally solved everyone seems okay. It’s kind of cool that Grape and Max were planning an RPG session, and hey, saucy Pridelands certainly sounds fun.

1. Technically it wasn't him who got the money. Remember it's his owner that's credited as the author. Res probably gets a significant allowance in pet terms, but...

2. The Housepets world is still pretty creepy about animals, they probably only allow pets in the main cabin if they're service animals or something.

It isn't entirely clear how much of the world outside Babylon Gardens mirrors Babylon Gardens in terms of how "humanized" other pets are and how people interact with them. At times, BG seems to be its own little island; other times, people outside BG still interact with their pets as walking, talking, hyper-sentients.

Max talked about a relationship based on a mutual romantic interest in a 3rd party.
The only 3rd party that Peanut has any romantic interest in is Grape, meaning that Max is saying that Taroh also has a romantic interest in Grape.

I think what Max means it that it bothers him that Tarot and Peanut rekindle their relationship, because of the relationship between Grape and Peanut.

That would mean that Ms. Auburn is just really stingy about the money they get.
And King, Fox and the rest were on A plane when they went to Australia. Even Bruce and Rossevelt were there. Even if they had to return via cargo they originally had plane tickets.

What about yes, Max? :P And yeah, remember? In past you started a relationship with Grape based on your mutual interest about those Pridelands books, didn't you? ;) From them you can really start a serious relationship, that's long proved. :) Uhm, curious expansion of the Pridelands RPG. Let's play it. :P

Sure, they're walking-talking sapient beings who can get sent to the pound if they're not on leash, or randomly relocated by animal control. There's no way this isn't creepy.

Also, PETA exists in the BG universe, granted everyone in BG seems to treat them with the scorn they deserve, but the fact that they are still out there is troubling.

That's honestly poor business strategy if that's true. I mean if you have the money, billions or not, you should be able to buy something as simple as a plane ticket no matter who or what you are. Money is universal.

To be fair, most of the pets don’t work, so them not having money for the plane tickets is also nearly universal as well. I mean let me remind you, Max had to use a quarter to try and bribe someone to sell him catnip

"Yeah, but... pets go with the cargo. They're animals. If we give animals a seat in the plane, that means a human would have to lose their seat. And I mean, we're the ones who invented planes, and we're the ones who keep these flights running. Why should we prioritize pets' comfort over our own?"
The problem with expecting society to be logical in stories is that you have a million easy examples of illogic in our own societies with which to compare.

Edit: Misremembered a thing :P
