No, if that was so, Jack would have Kat and Art waking up in bed with each other, much to their embarrassment, and to our endless laughter. Laughing

Also, I only stated that there appears to be a romantic relationship between Kat and Art, I never said that there was with 100 % certainity. As I have explained (in several posts), it appears that Jack is building up suspense and he may or may not decide to pair them up together. We the fans can only speculate. Only Jolly Jack has the final say in if and when Kat and Art become a couple.

Is it just me or does the catman in strip 627 that Kat was flirting with...look like a felinoid version of Art?

However, if JollyJack slowly builds the relationship up slowly (as it is often done in real life), creating tension and foreshadowing as well as showing the exact development of the romance, then instead of ruining the story, the romantic relationship will actually enhance and benefit the story.

This is called "romantic tension" It's used in any sort of medium where a story continues for an indeterminate length of time. In most TV shows geared toward adults this tension provides a lot of amusement and can give a few great laughs. It can become something that the audience looks forward to. Everyone (at least most people) would love to see the story between two people come to an end where they realize their love for each and everything turns out hunky-dory, but once it happens the intrigue is gone. The "tension" part that we all look forward to and enjoy seeing is gone. There are no embarrassing moments like Kat posing with her finger in her mouth and Art hiding behind the couch or the instance in the broom closet during the Jack arc if the two are already in a relationship. Then stuff like that is just normal behavior and therefor boring. Poof, everything we look forward to has already happened, what more is there to look for?

I personally love seeing the little things they do to "flirt" whether intentional or not, but I would hate to see them get together because I would see this as foreshadowing of the end of Sequential Art forever.

For those insisting that a Kat + Art relationship would be weird on account of differing species, I'd like to point out that Hilary, a rabbit, is dating a wolf. Nobody seems to raise a fuss over that.

So the issue here isn't really about interspecies relationships per se, it's about a human dating a non human. However, I'd also like to point out that these characters aren't really cats or squirrels or rabbits at all. Even in JJ's fantasy cartoon world, a rabbit isn't really dating a wolf and Art's roommate isn't really a cat. These are basically humans with fur and parts from a certain species of animal attached in a few places. You can't even say it'd be a 'human with an animal', because biologically humans themselves ARE animals.

How about we stop with the whole "She's a cat and that's really weird" stuff and accept that she's a cartoon character in a fictional webcomic version of the world?

In Furlough, the Tiger Orange storyline, Furrys created via gene splicing and cloning are legal property. Humans given animal characteristics by gene therapy are nobody's property. When Kat maims a bad guy with her claws, that will settle the matter. In Sabrina Online, some hoods tried to rob her and her raccoon boyfriend. She sprayed them, and her boyfriend who did not get out of the way. If squirrel girls are human, Quentin is guilty of hate crimes.

Furlough is a comic book. It has a lot of different stories, mostly multi-part stories, and Tiger orange was a space opera. It was about a violent tiger girl trying to find out why she was created. I won't tell you any spoilers because you may be able to pick up the compendium.

Sabrina Online is about a skunk woman who goes to work for Zig Zag setting up and maintaining the webpage. Some of you may be under 18 so I won't post a link to it.

Their humanity is not the original topic. They seem to be somewhere in between human and animal. Squirrels actually act that way. Thank goodness most squirrels don't have battle suits.

Kat and Art could have a romantic relationship. Any kittens would look like Di Gi Charat. That's not what is preventing it.

with jollyjacks characters its more like 90%+ human (which is good)
the outward appearance doesn't really factor as much as the intellectual, lingual, bipedal and emotional aspects
if anything they are closer to monkeys than other animals, just like we are

No, they were giving examples of furry rights in other instances, such as other comics. In my opinion, in a world where animal-people can have the same jobs, lives and hobbies as normal humans, a furry/human relationship is about the same as a multiracial relationship in our world. Some will frown on it while others will find nothing wrong with it. My mother for instance isn't racist at all, but she doesn't really like the idea of, say, a black man and white woman, or visa versa. But I myself see nothing wrong with it. If a Rottweiler and a German Shepherd are allowed to breed then why not different races of people? It all amounts to the same thing really. I see nothing wrong with someone like Kat being with someone like Art in that universe.

they are a type of person, not a beast

Those kinds of people use it as a more except-able way of satisfying their urges for beastiality, which while most of the time I don't see it quite as "animal cruelty" as it's called, it just ain't freakin' right! Honestly it creeps me out. I'm not gonna go around and beat the living hell out of people who do it, but it sure as hell isn't for me.

Then again putting dogs in T-shirts creeps me out too. I don't like animals in clothes...But at the same time I want to build a set or armor for my mom's Great Pyrenees and take her to Pensic War with me.

I think we kinda got off topic.

But as I said before, the comic gets alot of its humor from the interactions via sexual tension between Kat and Art, so I think that JJ would not hook them up until he was good and ready and felt that he no longer needed that as a source of humor, or, he found another way to use the relationship to create humor. i.e. Boyfriend/girlfriend relationship situations.

I would imagine that there would be quite a few jokes that could be used for such a situation, not to mention the humor derived from an interspecial relationship.
