Whistle-blower

First | Previous | 2014-07-24 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Edwin Chee

{Garfield found a whistle, with Odie facing away behind him, minding his own business}
Garfield: Hmmm a whistle.
{Garfield blows the whistle}
{Both Garfield and Odie are startled by the seemingly silent sound}
Jon: {to Lyman} Looks like Garfield found your dog whistle.

The author writes:

This strip got me into researching the cat's hearing range, and I found out that they have a higher hearing range than a dog's, meaning that if a dog whistle is blown, cats can hear it too (the extra range helps with detecting prey), even though they don't necessarily follow it. Because of this, I edited the strip to be more accurate to this fact.
