How We Sound When We Talk To Our Cats

Here's a quick post (probably the first of many tonight, so be prepared):

I just discovered a site called "Arbuckle" which is dedicated to redrawing the Garfield comic strips without Garfield's thought balloons.

In the original comic, Jon and Garfield interact with one another, although artist Jim Davis clearly indicates that Garfield is thinking, rather than speaking, his responses.

Thus it begs the question "Are Garfield's responses all in Jon's head? What's actually going on in these daily interactions between a man and his cat?"

I know, I know, someone's spent too much time philosophizing over a comic strip long past its expiration date. But take a look at a sample "Garfield:"

And here's the same comic, turned into "Arbuckle:"

Kinda makes you think, eh?
