Stripy Six is a webcomic by Stripy-Artist. It is about pets. Many of the strips are humorous, but others are of a religious nature.
 Stripy Six
The Stripy Six are six characters who are the main characters in the comic.
Stripy is a male cat, whose fur is colored white. His owner is Paul. His first appearance is in Stripy Six #1. He was about to introduce the characters' names, but he forget to establish Fuzzball's cue.
Stripy getting hit by an anvil, as in Stripy Six #8, would've become a running gag, but the author moved on to other ideas. He has been known to get over-the-top celebrating Earth Day/Hour. He also had strange delusions of taking over the Internet.
The character has ventured into the world of cartooning. He also is attracted to Milky, and became jealous when Milky showed an interest in Kit, and vice versa. It was implied that he is iatrophobic.
Fuzzball is a male dog with yellow fur. His owner is Paul. His first appearance is in Stripy Six #1. He was not informed of when Stripy was starting out Stripy Six #1, and therefore arrived off-cue. Between himself and Stripy, he is suggested to be more knowledgeable of the two, and plays the straight-man to Stripy's more uninformed personality. He is also more likely to complain, particularly about "lack of readers". He has been shown to be able to use himself as a helicopter, particularly to evade bathing.
Flower is a female dog with brown fur. Her first appearance was in Stripy Six #2, where she suggested Fuzzball stand up and lift the Bible he wanted to get. She makes only sporadic appearances despite being introduced early on. She has been shown to ally with Stripy on more than one occasion. Her pet name for Fuzzball is "Fuzzy".
Milky is a female cat with orange fur and black stripes. Her owner is Kyle. Her first appearances were in comic #52 and comic #53. She was repulsed by Stripy's overconfident advances, and loves Kit. Milky can get very annoyed at times.
Kit is a male grey cat. His first appearance was comic #90. He can be kind of naive sometimes. He is also a good acrobat. He loves Milky.
Patch is a male dog with pale yellow fur and a brown "patch" over his eye. He likes to kid around with others and make puns.
Paul is a male person with dark skin tone. His name was revealed in comic #166. Before this time, he had no official name, and the comic's author informally referred to him as Red Shirt Guy as he wore a red shirt in the first 10 Commandments strip. The first blog post referring to him by that name is comic #34. Paul is the owner of Stripy and Fuzzball.
Kyle is a male person with dark skin tone. He can be differentiated by his afro. He likes to watch sports with Paul.
Joe is a male person of light skin tone. He preaches at the local church. He is friends with Paul. He is married.
There is not a lot of it, but this is what we have so far. LOTS OF SPOILERS, in case it wasn't obvious.
Stripy Six starts out with Stripy clearing his throat, and greeting the readers. Fuzzball appears off-cue and accidentally ruins the dramatic timing of the comic. The strip then ends with a joke about a chicken crossing a road. After that, Fuzzball listens to his owner, Paul, read the Bible. He is intrigued, and wants to read more. His friend Flower arrives, and Stripy comes too. Flower suggests he stand up to retrieve and Fuzzball reads it to them.
 Stripy-Milky story
This comprises most of the comic. When Milky arrived in comic #52, Stripy was immediately attracted to her, and decided to voice these attractions. He was shocked to be turned down, as seen in comic #58. Milky only wanted to be friends. Stripy seemed to get a grip soon enough. Unfortuately, that was all overturned by the time Kit came along...
Kit appeared in comic #90. He and Milky immediately clicked. Stripy became overprotective, warning Kit not to go near her. He became hostile towards him and even sent Flower to ask Kit if he really loved Milky in comic #93. He helped out Stripy and Flower with a tough question in comic #96. Lots of hostility built up in Stripy, leading to some confrontations, which did nothing.
Because Stripy was so bitter toward Kit, he planned on attacking him. He brought some nail clippers to threaten him with. Before anything could ever happen, Paul entered the room and yelled at him. Stripy was placed in a room and got upset, feeling guilty. He felt really bad about trying to hurt Kit, grappling with the question for an entire Sunday strip. He finally decided to not be mean to Kit.
Unfortunately, Kit wasn't aware of that. He decided to create an intervention. He created a meeting with Milky, Fuzzball, and Flower. They decided to try and arrest Stripy and convince him to repent. He had already done so, therefore, he was worried they would hurt him.
 Stripy's new relationship
Stripy decided to try his luck again with Milky in comic #257 after a long truce. Milky told him off and didn't want to forgive him, but Kit did anyway. Stripy felt upset and wanted to have a girlfriend too. When he met her, they really liked each other. But then the other cat, who we find out is named "Baby", followed him home. Stripy was unhappy about this, and alerted Fuzzball. Fuzzball tells Milky about the new girlfriend RIGHT IN FRONT OF Stripy, and he got upset and tried to block out the conversation. Fuzzball told him that doing this was silly. He eventually started talking to Baby again. He's still uncomfortable about her, though.
The author does not think you need to know too much about him. He is a Christian. That's all he really feels like telling you. Stripy Six is his first comic. Is there anything more you need to know? The author was worried that people would try and bother him in real life about it or something. It doesn't make a lot of sense or anything, but he does it anyway, making him sort of you Friendly Neighborhood Guy who Puts Comics That Are Often About His Beliefs and Involve Pets (Even Though He Never Had Any) on a Blogspot Website, But You May Not Have Heard of It. He Thought That Stick Limbs Would Be A Good Idea When He Started Out, So Maybe That's Why People Don't Like It. He Also Realizes That This Is Getting Way Too Long.
The author's Seventh-Day Adventist beliefs appear in the strip from time to time. They started from comic #2, where Fuzzball is listening to Paul read to him. Many of them are not intended to be humorous, with some exceptions.
