Cat's Entertainment

It may or may not be a good idea to draw attention to the fact that the main character of your strip is not "actually entertaining," but Garfield makes it a daily practice. Yes, Garfield has such a poor attitude, he doesn't care if his laziness ruins his own comic strip. He's not even sleeping. He's just lying on his back, motionless.

Jon's frantic facial expressions are the only thing making up for Garfield's lack of interest in keeping the visuals lively. J. Arb's always been drawn with an overbite, but panel 3 is really pushing it, and looks very much like how Jim Davis draws birds. Dear Diary: Jon's face turned into a little bird face today.

The idea of animals wanting their own pets is too perverse for further elaboration. Deal with it in your own way.

Today's Mystery Question:
How exactly would the stripes on the back of Garfield's head be visible from this angle?

Panel 3 is the most terrifying thing since the Halloween 1989 story arc
