  • Jerkass Woobie: Leo. As much of a Jerkass as he can be, it's kinda hard not to pity him at times, especially with how Aeris sometimes treats him. Most of his "cruelty" is to fictional characters (such as the Sims example) and things like the baby worm tend to be in the context of strips portraying Leo and Aeris as specific fictional characters being parodied, rather than portraying them in the "usual" characterization.
  • Popular with Furries: Thanks to Leo and Aeris being anthromorphic cats, it's a popular webcomic amongst furries.
  • Seasonal Rot: The later comics are generally considered to be of lower quality than the pre-2010's comics. The Dethroning Moment of Suck page in particular either has one of the later comics, or had those removed because the troper found a worse comic.
  • Squick: A lot of the comic is based on this.
    • Seeing a disemboweled Winnie the Pooh asking Piglet to kill him will make you want to gouge your eyes out.
    • In #110 Bubblegum Leo not only rips his own fur off in an attempt to not suffocate, he then proceeds to chew that hairy glob of gum again. This must be why cats get hairballs so often.
  • Tear Jerker:
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: To date, Ramsoomair has made three strips parodying Star Fox. The only one to feature any of the characters aside from Slippy (as opposed to having Aeris & Leo fill their roles)? The one where Fox & Falco have sex while making bad in-jokes. And then Wolf shows up, implying it's not over - though one wonders how he got on the Great Fox (or why he has a beer gut, unlike Fox and considering his flight suit implies he'd be pretty well-built out of costume). Then again, yaoi fantasies never had to make sense as it turned out to have been Aeris' imagination. Still, the one time we see Ramsoomair's take on any of the other Star Fox characters, this is what we get.note 
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: At first, it looks like a cutesy comic about two Funny Animal cats who go on adventures in various video games. However, strong profanity and adult jokes are common, not to mention the creator spends time drawing pornographic bonus art on his Patreon.
