Strip by: DanielBT

{Jon dials the phone}
[SFX]: dial dial dial
Jon: Hello, Liz's office? Can you look at my cat?
Jon: I'd like to bring him in for a checkup.
Garfield: But I just had one.
Jon: You'd better flush out his worms.
Jon: Tighten his bowels.
Jon: Remove his claws.
Jon: Oh yes, and have him neutered.
{Garfield is outside on the street trying to thumb a lift, with a sign saying "Abu Dhabi"}
Jon: Garfield?

The author writes:

An alternate look at the Sunday comic with the closest medical terms that could've been running through Garfield's imagination as Jon was describing his car repairs. One wonders what the mechanical equivalent of being neutered might be.
