Poor Zach. No matter how much he tries to stay away from it, unconsciousness and free interpretation must always combine forces against him.

Jessica, your stubbornness and failing way to be right is being slightly hard to bear now... You're creating an useless confusion in your mind. :P Yeah, Zach is having the reply for everything you're saying, that's in his nature to be careful and a good bunny. :) And, he has every needed stuff too, he's well assorted. It's an advantage of be a citizen and have an owner, you should figure out that. ;)

Noting though, that Zach is a pet, not a citizen.

Right, I kinda meant that. Just wanted to say that's an advantage of live in a city, unlike her who lives in the woods.

I didn't say they'd take it *off* the market, I said that if it was introduced now it wouldn't be approved for general use as an OTC painkiller. Why? Because there are better alternatives with fewer side effects.
When I had West Nile, they had me on Prednisone at first, but switched me off to high doses of Ibuprofen (Advil), with Acetaminophen (Aspirin) to back it up if it wasn't powerful enough. They're two different kinda of drugs, so they combine well. The reason Acetaminophen isn't popular with doctors nowadays is that it causes stomach and liver damage at a much higher rate than Ibuprofen, which is better at hitting the underlying symptoms of fever and swelling anyway.
Acetaminophen is Tylenol, Acetylsalicylic Acid is Asprin :)

I think this is the first time we seen Zach standing in view of someone else his head level and talking normally without cowering or running away in four panels and just talk in general, getting to see his general expressions. It's quite refreshing.

Cool! Science fact! *writes down for use later to seem smarter*

I love this community.. we are having a discussion on drug facts in an arc about a talking rabbit and opossum talking about medicine for a sick baby opossum. Cool, eh?

Heh, seems even Zach's patience is wearing thin here.

You know what would be fun? If Zach decided to really get back at Jessica for her rudeness and sent a letter to the ferals, stating that she was now the only one to approach him and was his official messenger. Then he would get all the ferals away from his home, and they wouls all go to her with messages to send the opener. :roll:

Indeed, maybe Rick hasn´t found the right color for him ... but you could also say that is the lightning of the enviroment that creates an optical illusion making us think that he is changing colors.

I think he was level with Grape for a few installments of The Great Water Balloon War.

Not that that's at all related to the current strip, but several years ago, a member made icons for use in instant messenger clients supporting custom ones. He's since removed them from his server, but other users saved the emoticons and use them on the forums. Let's get back to discussing the strip, please.

Yup -- I can see Zachary helping Jessica schlep all this junk back to the wild. And it's Zach's fault if she becomes domesticated...

Yeah, I think the last strip was by a fireplace. Hence the red-ish tint to both Jessica's and Zach's colours. Now, in normal lighting, they are back to normal.
