    Does anyone out there have a cat that shakes it head violently after they’ve been scratched behind their ears? Mine do.

    that is exactly what my cat does, except she’ll start kneading her paws into me, with nice razor sharp nails.

    My cat’s are declawed in the front, no sharp claws… And when I scratch them behind the ears, they tend to move their heads so that I scratch their ears properly, not just behind them. :)

    When I was in college, a friend of mine had an orange cat much like Garfield. His name was Mao. Everytime I would go over to her house, Mao would jump into my lap and look at me in a tone that said, “Scratch my ears or I will do to you what the vet did to me!” Poor Mao got hit by a car while chasing two dobermans. I miss that cat.

    My pug does the same thing. My friends cat will yowl until she gets scratched in exactly the right place.

    I ask again - does Jon have a real job? Or am I the only one who doesn’t know what he does for money? They spend a lot on lasagna!

    I concur with those who suggested having the cat checked for ear mites. Does the cat scratch in that area a lot even when you’re not scratching it’s ears? You might take a peek in the cat’s ears and see if they have this black gakky stuff in them, those are mites. They can drive the cat nuts!

    Cute last panel, I hope you’re purring Garfield.

    That’s exactly like my friends cat, Mocha … I was in his chair, using his computer… I felt two lil paws on my leg. I scratched her ears for a few seconds, and went back to comic reading. Then I have a 15 lb ball of Siamese fur in my lap. Ah how I love animals (and kids) that aren’t mine. haha

    And I answer again: Back in the very first Garfield strip (June 1978), it was established that Jon is a work-at-home cartoonist.

    Mt cats start that way and then twist their head so I am rubbing under their chin. They LOVE that!

    Hey Llewellenbruce if money is a problem for you like it is for my wife and I try this: It works for both ear mite and dry ear problems. We’ve done this and it’s safe our Vet has agreed

    Uh-oh! What does ear mite look like???? I never see ear mite before.

    I had a short story about our family dog named, JG (Jay-Gee) was lost at Pyramid Lake for about 1-2 weeks. I went to Camp in Oregon in the summer time. I got the letter from my mother saying that JG was found and had a lot of ticks in her ears. Vets had to give her a shot to calm her down while taking the ticks out of her ears. She walked with her head tilt down. It was so hilariously funny!

    Susan, That is exactly what I was thinking. Maybe Garfield was a drill Sgt in an earlier life?

    What else does Jon have to do? Sudoku? HAHAHAHA!

    I give our servicemen a lot more credit than that. I appreciate their sacrifice. Everyone I know who served our country did it because they really wanted to (with the exception of the Viet Nam draft).

    I’m pretty sure my cats don’t have ear mites. They are strictly in-door cats. Also cats that are outdoor cats only have a life expectancy of about four years versus about twelve or more years for in-door ones.

    I love Garfield’s expression in the second panel.

    ‘Jon, if you don’t scratch my ears, you’re gonna be sorry you didn’t.’

    Llewellenbruce - take cat to vet !

    in-door or our-door has nothing to do with the mites.

    a head shaking cat has a problem…usually ear mites… if ears dirty - get to vet.

    mrs luke? I don’t follow you. Do you mean comparing Garfield to a drill sergeant is demeaning? It was a great delight to a Sgt to ask for a volunteer driver. Who wouldn’t want to drive instead of marching 15 or 20 miles? Then they would give the “volunteer” a wheelbarrow. -or they would ask for three volunteers, “You, you and you” and give you shovels to dig slit latrines. Some drill Sergeants were plain mean. It still exists as witnessed by the present investigation where a young trooper was driven to suicide.

    My cats have always been indoor cats and they’ve had earmites. I’d take the cat to the vet or use the solution Paul M. posted about.

    @legaleagle48 You’re correct Jon’s profession in the strip was established as a cartoonist in the very first panel of the very first strip. However, in the feature film he is a commercial artist working out of his home.

    Personally, I would trust Jim Davis’ opinion of Jon’s profession over any Hollywood hype!

    I always see Jon suffering his humiliation at Garfield’s hand (paw?) and then going into his studio and turning it into today’s comic!

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if I had a cat that tried to bully me that way, I’d put him down. With an elephant gun, if necessary.

    Now wheedling me for an ear scratch with sheer affection, on the other hand…
