The Further Adventures of Spot
The Yarn Ball is the 12th arc in Housepets!.
- Jasper (debut)
- The Biggelsworths (debut)
- Joey (in cat disguise only)
- Fiddler & Keys (debut)
Max introduces Grape to some of the neighborhood cats, including Joey in a cat costume.
Later the Yarn Ball is held, and Grape and Max dance together while Fiddler & Keys play music.
Grape arrives home late, having nipped a bit, and falls asleep on Peanut.
- On January 5th, the 4th comic in the arc was pulled after about 9 hours, aborting the arc early. Rick decided that catnip referencing cannabis smoking was pushing the PG rating, later posting a small comic page with an explanation and that Housepets! would be taking a break for the rest of that week. Rick says that it is to be thought of as a terrible terrible alternate universe.
- This is one of two arcs that follows into the next year, the other being Snow Joke.
- This is the first arc to feature Joey's "catsuit", as first mentioned in Cat Tail.
