    Garfield won’t eat mice/rats, but a rat eating a cat seems so… so… what’s the word?… awkward?

    Rat was trying to protect Stephan, as Garfield said(after Rat said that he gets drawn by Pastis) “pastas? I love pastas”

    I am surprised there is a lot of Lasagna, I thought all the Lasagna would be inside Garfield that is inside Rat

    After digestion, Rat will have nothing left but a Big Cat Ass Trophy.

    Either Pastis spent a lot of time with a Garfield treasury to get things just right or today’s strip is another guest appearance, this time by Jim Davis.

    Rat really needs to chew his food before he swallows it.

    Hey…Don’t be so quick to blame Rat! After all, Garfield’s insatiable appetite fot lasagna may have gotten him in trouble this time. Maybe Garfield climbed into Rat’s stomach for a few more mouthfuls"

    If Garfield is born again, will it be drawn by (the ghost of) Johnny Hart?

    Seems like Rat is getting a bit catty (or was that “Cathy”?)!

    It’s a good thing Rat didn’t eat the dog. That would have been quite ODIous.

    Why would Jim Davis sue? He should be accustomed to other people drawing Garfield.How many years has it been since he’s actually drawn a comic instead of having his staff draw it for him?

    Hopefully rats digestive juices will relieve us for Garfield forever. Or is this the birth of Bill the Cat? Berkeley Breathed would be a much better guest artiest!

    Y’know, Garfield’s pretty small if he can fit in rat’s stomach.
