2's fursona, by Jessie T. Wolf

Matthew Davis, also known as 2, the Ranting Gryphon, is a professional comedian who performs mainly at sci-fi and furry conventions. 2 also performs and records audio 'rants', and hosted an Internet radio show called 2 Sense which ran until 2 July 2005 for about 80 mostly-weekly episodes, up to two hours in length.

A performer for most of his life, he began as a rock guitarist in the 1980's. He then ventured into the sci-fi and fantasy fields, doing comedy events at conventions during the 1990's. As a member of the furry fandom, he is generally well-liked for his humor, his somewhat liberal view on the world and his quest to spread the "truth".

2's alter-ego/avatar is a gryphon, his name allegedly coming to him in a dream about the creature. He regularly attends furry conventions and occasionally performs stand up there. He often jokes that he wants to build a furry army with which to take over the world.

2 currently resides in Arkansas, USA, in a social collective of fellow furry fans/artists ("furs"), known as the North Arkansas Regional Furry Association. (more...)

Housepets! is an anthropomorphic webcomic by Rick Griffin. The comic is loosely based upon a series of sketches created in Griffin's childhood about a dog named Bino, who also appears as a supporting character in the comic as it exists today. Griffin came up with the idea of expanding his sketches into a full webcomic in 2006, drew up a few rough strips in 2007, and unveiled the comic itself on June 2, 2008. Housepets! won the 2009 Ursa Major Award for Best Comic Strip

The primary setting is Babylon Gardens, a suburban neighborhood somewhere within the United States. Most animals are sentient; most mammals are fully anthropomorphized, able to walk and talk, and live double their normal lifespan. Animals also enjoy certain rights (for example, a police dog can arrest humans), but wild animals not kept as pets have no legal status. Pets are regarded much like surrogate children, referring to their owners as "Mom" and "Dad" as well as adopting their surnames, and may be kept by humans who opt not to have children of their own.

The plot centers around Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly, pets of the Sandwich family, and their various misadventures. Most strips depict Peanut and Grape dealing with common problems, such as coping with boredom, visiting the vet, and interacting with other pets. Some pay tribute to Griffin's inspirations; one full arc is a homage to familiar scenes from Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes, and the faces of most humans in the comic are never seen, as for adults in Charles Schulz's Peanuts.
