A furry comic book (originally webcomic) by [[http://www.furaffinity.net/user/rukis/ Rukis]].

Reis is a wolfdog whose closest friend is Marcus, a gay fennec fox. It starts out with Reis bringing Marcus home so he'd recover from a beating. Marcus learns that Reis is having some trouble at home due to Reis' parents' drug problems. [[spoiler:Turns out, Reis is following in their footsteps.]]

!!''Cruelty'' provides examples of:
* AddledAddict: The reason Reis's mom is never around. In ''Unconditional'', [[spoiler:she dies of an overdose.]] Reis's father is already dead.
* DrugsAreBad: Reis's father overdosed, his mother's been arrested multiple times for drug abuse [[spoiler:and Reis himself is addicted to Oxytocin and Codiene--and that's just the drugs we're ''told'' about]].
* FeelNoPain: Reis [[spoiler:due to him being high as a kite.]]
* FunctionalAddict: [[spoiler:Reis]]
* FurryComic: Yep.
* GroinAttack: Reis is on the receiving one during his fight with Tobias and Keith. [[spoiler: It has no effect because he's on drugs.]]
* IfIt'sYouIt'sOkay: In terms of men, Reis only seems to have eyes for Marcus.
* InteractiveFiction: There are two paths the plot can take. They have no real affect on the ending.
* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Marcus gets accepted into Raemont, which is said to be Ivy League.
* MadeOfIron: Reis. He gets into a fight and kicks his attackers' asses, even though he's been bloodied and [[GroinAttack kneed in the groin]]. [[spoiler:Turns out, he's drugged to the gills.]]
* OhCrap: Tobias's reaction when bloodying Reis's face and later [[GroinAttack kneeing him in the balls]] has virtually [[PunchPunchPunchUhOh no effect]]. Then Marcus's reaction [[spoiler:when he sees Reis being arrested]].
* ParentalAbandonment: [[MissingMom His mom]] [[{{Prison}} is in jail]]; [[DisappearedDad his dad's dead of an overdose]].
* PoliceAreUseless: Thoroughly averted. [[ShownTheirWork Rukis even got help from a real cop for this comic.]]
* PornWithPlot: The porn part is averted if you take the plot path that Marcus does ''not'' spend the night with Reis.
* {{Prison}}: [[spoiler:Reis ends up jailed for assault and drug possession.]]
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Pretty much the entire fight between Tobias and Keith vs. Reis
* Single-Target-Sexuality: Reis only seems to have eyes for Marcus. Although he does admit to having trouble talking to women.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: It gets rather egregious when the author uses "based" instead of "best", amongst other flubs.
** A particularly hilarious example: [[spoiler: Reis]] is addicted to ''oxytocin.'' As in, the hormone the brain releases when you hug somebody. Presumably the author meant to say ''OxyContin.''
* TeenyWeenie: Tobias is mocked for having one, even for a feline. This mockery is what triggers Tobias to beat up Marcus and pick a fight with Reis.
