Strip by: GarfQC

{Jon sees a mouse running past}
Garfield {supposedly running after the mouse}: Which way did the mouse go?
Jon: They went that way!
Garfield {going back}: Just curious

The author writes:

It's the 2020s. People like Jon need to get used to respecting other's pronouns.

I know "it" is a more preferred pronoun for non-human things, but I made Jon refer to the mouse as "they" for the sake of the joke.
