Strip by: Camwoodstock

Jon: {reading newspaper} Specimen 7 is constantly changing.
{slowly, Specimen 7 devours the strip...}
Garfield: {scared, shouting} Jon, what have you done?!
{Specimen 7 eats the entire rest of the strip...}

The author writes:

AKA: Garfield Specimen 7 Garfield

I decided to mix up the infamous Pudding Pops meme, and make it so the character physically changes the strip, instead of having them just show up randomly. I also saw that the CAT.DOS entry for Specimen 7 in Spooky's House of Jumpscares mentions that its appearance is constantly changing.

The net result? I fused the obvious joke with the concept of having the character that shows up actually interact in the strip, and... Now the strip is devoured by Specimen 7, causing this to be a lot more dramatic! Yay...?
