It seems like Maple's some sort of mob boss. The question now is is the mob made up of birds or other cats. I think we can trust Clover enough now to let up that we don’t know what’s going on with our alley cat. Additionally, I think it would be a bad idea to try to convince the others we haven’t lost our marbles when we don’t know the location of our marbles, so to speak (unless you’re confident in our smooth-talking ability). That being said, my current stance is 1. "What happened last night?"

Ahm... what? Why do you think Maple's in/from a parallel universe?

That makes total sense. I'm with you. 1+6

You continue to get ready for the day and groom yourself a bit, but make sure to cover the more pressing matter.

Maple: "...what did I do this time?"

Clover: W-well, a few claw marks on some of the boys here and there, a bit of unwanted attention from "Our Neighbors", and uh... well I'm no doctor but I think you broke Denim's nose...

Maple: "Why??"

Clover: Well, you...

Image

Clover: Ya tried to quit again, lass...

Maple: ...

Image

Clover: Look, ya know better than anyone that I've never wanted you gettin' into that stuff, but ya can't just force change like that! You've gotta take things in stide, Maple. One day we'll get you all sorted out, but for now you've got to find a balance. Don't become dependent, but don't push yourself away so fast. You'll make it, Maple. Heck o' all the lot we got 'round 'ere you of all cats are strong enough to get through this!

You feel like garbage again. Clean garbage, but garbage.

First off, tried to quit what? Second, 2.
I am so tired of the people I look up to turning out to be jerks.

You ever realize that the two longest pieces of literature in existence are both fanfics? Weird right?

2 sounds good. Then 5 if we're doing that.

I wasn't really involved with the first story, why don't we want to chain too much?

Ok, so Maple is either addicted to a substance like catnip or tried to leave her organization. Part of me wants to develop Maple as the quiet but serious type by going with option 3. However practically, I don't see that as being very productive. You know what, let's give some character to our character more so than just being a yes-man. My vote is for 3) "...". More information is normally best, but "'Second thing second'?" seems like a weird way to ask; I don't recall anyone saying "second thing second" a first time to prompt clarification.

From multiple places on page 11 of this thread put together:
CHAOKOCartoons wrote:...you can only chain 2 to 3 options at max. However, you have to be SURE that that is the right thing to do, and a majority of people have to have done the exact same chain in that order for you to make it work. If you start abusing the chain option, or do it in a place that doesn't make sense, I'll start putting in minor penalties. The longer the chain, the bigger the risk... As for those who think the penalty for over or incorrectly chaining aren't much to worry about, you're not completely wrong, but sometimes those small penalties can hit you at the worst times, or stack up and make things really bad ;) But still, if you're SURE it's the right thing to chain in a given situation, by all means do it, as you can greatly benefit from being able to say 2 things in some situations. :D ...you'll be able to accumulate "Good Karma", it will allow you to have one free chain per point, or wipe any Karma you have accumulated. You can gain Good Karma by continuously not chaining while at neutral karma, getting through a combat scene mostly well or intentionally poorly, or by doing specific actions.

I'm going to be honest, Maple's relationship with Clover is an odd one. First impression, pretty much a jerk. But softened up REAL quick upon getting struck, even though it seems implied that this wasn't rare. And it was Maple's mental status that took a blow. Perhaps she's been going through withdrawals for a while now? It seems that now he actually cares about her. Maybe that initial scene was him trying to lighten the mood?

Hmm... I'm even more confused now. I think I'll abstain this round.

Side note, when you said "take it in [stride]", I think you meant "take it slow". To take something in stride means to "deal with something difficult or unpleasant in a calm and accepting way," according to the definition on Google, which can kind of make sense in this context, but not quite.
It's difficult to wear gloves with webbed fingers...

Wild mass guessing: Maple is the creature that attacked the brothers and is cursed a la Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde.

Number 2. My friend Midnight and I are following this thing very closely right now, having only found it yesterday. We're all caught up and ready to play along.

It's been over a month and a half since the last update, far from "at the very least once a week.". That's ok though, CHAOKOCartoons. I understand that there are multiple things diverting your attention and Case: Housepets! is far from the most important thing. If you don't have the time or don't feel like continuing with this, how about you get an assistant? I'm sure some of the players here would be happy to step up and help run this game.

Jobs that pay the bills came up for Chaoko. Plus, he's been working on developing his own IPs.
