Author commentary

Veronica: Kevin looks so much like a character out of Lackadaisy at first glance due to his debut.. I SERIOUSLY WASN’T INTENDING FOR THAT if anyone thinks that way.. he’s just a weird cat leave me alone ;.;

And we lead to a fact in the Bittersweet world: cats and dogs cannot reproduce. It isn’t a matter of race.. or breed.. it’s just a matter of what kind of ANIMAL you are. So yeah.. you either marry someone you love of the same species and have kids.. or marry someone you really love of a different species.. knowing that you can’t have babies. TOUGH DECISIONS. Paulo is a confused child. Abbey is obviously adopted.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

I think Paulo needs all 6 talks, each repeated over and over, in 9 different languages…

I admire how casually you deal with the societal issues with anthromorphic animals- duck season, pets, clothing situations, interspecies…

Well. Now we see why Abbey’s a bit full of anger. He’s obviously stressed out. Oh well, dude’s probably got over it by now.

I forsee Paulo bringing it up in a really insensitive way.

aw, you can’t breed anthropomorphic characters together? there goes my dream of breeding Foxes and Bunnies together to get super cute mutant animals and make a killing selling them as pets. they would be my little freaks of nature.

If Cats and Dogs can’t reproduce then what about the Fox?

I think it’s weird that in this world cats and dogs can’t reproduce, since they can fall in love and be together and whatnot. That’s just weird, being in love with another animal of a different species…Then again, I’m a human, and no other kind of animal is eligible to be ****ed by humans in real life…I think I’m thinking WAY too deep into this.

first I didn’t knew what Abbey was… then I began to think that he was a bunny. And everything makes sense now…

Also I thought paulo was a fox :3

i don’t think i’ve ever heard of a world of furries where the different species can’t mate, usually the kids would just come out as one or the other, no problem.

this comic makes no sense.

@ wiiiiiiii :D
The only people in the Bittersweet world are domestic cats and dogs, sadly. :( Everything else is considered to be a pet. At least to my knowledge, anyway.
