The tiger that appears in the strip "Secret Santa" is specifically tagged as "not that tiger", which is a direct reference to the only other tiger that has ever been featured in the comic: Shardul

The only tiger other than Shardul to actually have been born a tiger. Lets put it that way because then that makes it accurate. :lol:

Also, I thought that tiger had a name somewhere if only it was an unofficial name the forum gave him?

A werewolf isn't a wolf, and a weretiger isn't a tiger!

In "Idylls of the King", while assisting Bailey's birth, Elaine comment's that "everyone's just having three lately", which implies that at least two of the most recent births in the wolf pack have been litters of three, which must be Snow's litter and Lucretia's. This confirms that Rodney and Snow have exactly three cubs and that Miles' cubs are from the same litter (non-indentical triplets)

Also makes me think this is the average rule of births for the Housepets universe. Gale seems to be the only exception so far.

Unless Pueblo had three siblings who didn't make it to adolescence.

That is just so very depressing and I am wondering why I brought that up even if it is a possibility. :|

I have to worry about it because that is my thing and I hate anything that has to do with child death. :cry:

Sorry dayzee, it looks like the child mortality rate of feral animals is off the charts!

If that is the case then, we can't be sure that Miles and Lucretia's cubs were triplets or that they were the first litter. The litter that caused Gale to end her and Miles friendship could have been an earlier one. :o

hmm... babies dying in a kids comic is pretty brutal, so I'm gonna stick with the happy version where nobody's dying at a young age...

Thankfully, in the same arc, Lucretia says she's had three cubs.

The puppy went to heaven tho, so I'm not losing too much sleep over it. Although come to think of it, all puppies go to heaven so we should'nt be worried about kids dying I guess? A little morbid but...

It doesn't matter if all young animals end up going to heaven because its too depressing. Since they didn't get to live out their full life. :cry:

Why live a full life when you can live it up in literal heaven?

This is why I assume that they which is whoever run heaven ended up making suicide an unforgivable sin. You have to EARN your happy ending in heaven. And it still is depressing because while the deceased offspring move on to heaven, what about their families they leave behind?

Ouch. Imagine committing suicide and finding out that Bahamut is gonna send you off to hell for all eternity!

Now before we all get depressed let's go back to finally noticing things on rereading:

Image

In Uncle Deadeye's most recent appearance in "Call o' th' Wild" he is wearing a blindfold, I think I just realized why.

When Deadeye was introduced, Rick chose to draw his eyes as pale blue and without pupils to show that he is blind. But now Rick Griffin doesn't draw eye-color anymore, so now all the characters have black pupils. So I think that Rick put a blindfold on Deadeye because he isn't sure how he should draw his eyes without eye-color like he used to. He can't draw black pupils because then he won't "look" blind anymore, and he can't draw them pale blue because he no longer uses eye-color. So I guess we won't see Deadeye in the comic before Rick finds a way to solve this.

I was thinking that the injuries that resulted in Poncho getting his scar also resulted in some damage to Deadeye's vision and the blindfold was a way to let what was left of the eyes heal.

As for drawing Deadeye again, Rick should have no problem if he choses to draw Deadeye with pale blue pupils since they would be pupils and not eye color. XD

Spo mentions that his family is so big that his parents had trouble finding original names. He says that his next younger brother's name is "Spp", which is after "Spo" in alphabetical order. If we assume all his siblings were named alphabetically, starting with "Aaa" then "Aab" and so on, this means that Spo has at least 12,574 brothers and sisters.

Well, animals in general live longer in this world.


That's all the explanation that we'll have.

It's probably the only explanation that we need also. Mice tend to multiply like crazy seemingly so if they live longer then it is only gonna be worse in this universe though I guess that is debatable since mice can talk and you might be able to reason with them if they are being pests.

If you try to reason with Spo he's gonna show up at your house wit his 12574 siblings and teach you a lesson

Today's comic strip is a reference to the first imaginate arc 12 years ago, where they simulate rain by throwing a water bucket into the ceiling fan.

Since it seems to be coming down hard and continuously in this strip like a downpour I am assuming they have a BIG bucket or they might be using a hose this time. XD

They've had a decade to refine their technique after all!

I'm just gonna say that they used a hose because it will be a lot more funnier and make Earl and Jill flip out even more. XD

Honestly you’d be surprised how many people have made that mistake even as native english speakers, english is a very strange and stupid language
