Strip by: Destructible Watermelon

{Jon is sweeping up some cat hair into a pile}
{Jon talks to another pile of cat hair, almost identical to the one just made}
Jon: Garfield, what am I supposed to do with all these cat hairs?!
{Jon looks at the fourth wall, looking perhaps mildly annoyed (maybe expressing "oh that wacky Garfield...")}

The author writes:

Is Jon actually talking to a pile of cat hair? is this another cat he made earlier? Is this one of Garfield's decoys? Did Jon momentarily mistake a pile of cat hair for a cat, or does he actually act as if it is a cat, like in an Imaginary Garfield strip? What emotion does he express as he gazes through the fourth wall? Is he annoyed at mistaking cat hairs for a cat? Annoyed that his Garfield replacement is not working out? Is Garfield still alive in this comic? Is the pile of cat hair this universe's version of Garfield?

There was no real reason to use #3011 rather than the original strip of it, except that Jon behaves in a different way, and also this way is more amusing than how he does in the original comic.
