Let's see, through my lack of knowing what do on internetz, I found Nerf This, to which Two Kinds was linked and finally ended up at House Pets!. Caught up today (Finally) and went headlong into the forums XP Never been disappointed with its comedy.

Nothing special for me. Saw an ad or two on other sites. Got bored. Went looking for something to do online. Suddenly, Housepets!.

One of my friends posted one of the comics on FB. It intrigued me when I saw it and I just had to look it up! :)

Was browsing 4chan and stumbled upon to a webcomic/furry hate thread, which had Housepets! on the starting post. Before the whole "conversation" degenerated into something horrible, there were couple strips posted, which got my attention and decided to check it out. At the end of third arc I was sold and bookmarked the comic.

First of all, sincere apologies to RandomGeekNamedBrent, that I did not answer in a timely fashion.

And to answer that second banner on the links page. It used to appear at one time a lot when I was a regular at the PokeCommunity forums a while back and I had one of my 'funny' episodes and got slightly paranoid and strange.

I was browsing Deviantart and came across Rick's page somehow, cannot remember how anymore... :roll: . I saw some pictures of some of the characters and the comments lead me to the comic. One of my better searches on Deviantart if I do say so myself :lol:

I found Rick on FA first, then later learned that he made a webcomic. So I got curious, and voila! Here I am!

I feel like most of the original furry fanbase that reads Housepets found him on FA (or DA), which isn't at all a problem, I just think it's interesting.

A fellow I know was talking about comics he likes on an irc channel. I wasn't really that interested in webcomics before then, but I checked this one out and I liked it.

I found it on Piperka, a web comic updater. I was looking for the comic "How the Dinasaurs Died" when I saw the name "Housepets." I thought it was one my roommate had showed me but I was wrong, still I read it and a few hours later I was done with a few story arcs. Now I'm borderline addicted.

No regrets!

A couple random strips were posted with altered text on a site I was visiting and after reading them, I decided to google the comic and see what the actual comic was like. Found out I love the humor, story line is well though out and entertaining for a comic and I love the characters. :)

I saw a banner add for it at another web comic and though "why not?"

I am happy with that simple decision.

Its been so long I can't really remember which comic it was. I want to say "Catena" but I am not sure. It was a banner ad that had the "Ghostbusters" quotes "Dogs and Cats. Living together. Mass hysteria!"

"You should check out Housepets!" is some of the best advice possible.

On the TopWebcomics list, I found the description given (Objectively better than the comic below) humourous and witty enough for me to check it out. And I tell you what, I'm so glad I did and it definitely represented the quality of writing particularly well. :)
