Because grapes are either green or purple...I would think a green cat would be too silly for this strip.

She got always enough sun, humus and water, so she ripened from her green into her purple form.

When she was a kitten there was an accident that involved Shampoo being mixed up with Dye.

Also genetics.

Originally she was a black European Shorthair, but then she accidentally walked into a nuclear testing range and got gamma-irradiated, what turned her into green Grape.

She fought many supervillains in that time, before her archenemy Mastermind tried to defeat her with a portable Gamma Ray. The beam created the evil counterpart Grey Grape, who started a fight between the two sides that led to the events depicted in World War Grape. Fortunately Grape's friends the Illuminati were able to reverse the polarity of the Gamma Ray and fuse the two into Purple Grape.

However, Purple Grape lost her superpowers due to a chunk of Aluminium.

What if she was red...
I've seen red grapes before. Or was that red purple...
Maybe she'd be Strawberry if she was red...
Hmm...

Flamingos eat tons of shrimp and turn pink. Grape eats tons of purple colored crayons and turns grape colored.

She's purple because it's possible she was created before it was totally established that most characters would have believable fur color.

Err... I mean... God made her that way. That or she has to dye it (Ritz from FFTA, anyone?)

Post Re: why is grape purple?
I would bet it has something to do with someone's mad experiment of sleeping on her fur too much when she was a tiny kitten when she was never woken up by even the worst of situations.

Then Peanut arrived... >.>

Especially with fur.

Also, one would die of oxygen deprivation if they had a bruise that large. The purple color would be all her blood.

Perhaps animals in this universe can just have different colored fur, and that's just her natural fur color. Note also that her nose is purple too.

In addition, the easily forgotten Jasper has a dark-blue fur color! I'm still waiting for a green dog. No, Tarot doesn't count.

Who is described as being gray >_>
I guess there are unusual fur colors in the world of Housepets, that probably don't exist in the real world.

Oh, must have overlooked that. It's a bit hard to make out if it's a shade of pink or gray IMO.

No no, he looks pink for me, too. But if Rick says it's great, then I guess it is... I mean, he draws and colors it, after all.

I say, Grape is purple for the same reason peanut is brown and max is grey/black and all other characters are the colour they are.

Also recall in anime how there are characters with turquoise hair as a normal color.

Or dark red.

Or hot pink.

And yet! Nobody says anything...

Also, Zach's fur is an extremely light purple to the point it's basically gray. depending on if you've calibrated your monitor color... We've done studies on this.

(...he still looks light pink to me.)
