oh interesting. for some reason i'd thought that he didn't have a job, but that makes sense to me. t's disappointing to see this revisionism from "fans" as if garfield always held the position he does now re:monday, but we all change our minds sometimes. it almost makes me like garfield more to know that he's evolved on the whole thing.

thanks for your help on this one everybody.

The first time the word "Monday" or "Mondays" appeared in a Garfield strip was 9/18/78, three months after the debut. This was the seed of Garfield's seething hatred for the day of the moon--a non-stop hatred that perhaps was all due to a traumatic encounter with a windowshade.

not every orange cat is garfield.

just fyi, by trying to revise history to suit your narrative, you’re destroying the forty years of Garfield that you’re looking to celebrate.

always been fascinated by how foreign Garfield is from an actual cat. The Mind of Davis is like a hyperbanal prism that reflects complex & beautiful creatures into strange unrecognizable golems
