Strip by: DanielBT

Simon: Hi, there... I'm Simon. I'm an animator, and this is my cat.
{Cat fiddles with lighting lamp}
Simon: Our only thought is to entertain you.
{Cat points to his mouth}

The author writes:

I discovered Simon's Cat via City of Reality, and was amazed that the animated YouTube sensation hadn't been converted yet, since it shares a lot of similarities to Garfield. The only major difference is that while Simon's cat may occasionally handle some objects with opposable thumbs, he acts much closer to an actual cat than Garfield does nowadays.

The latest animated video even had what could be considered Simon's "Nermal".
