Klosterman: 14 of 23

For reasons that cannot be explained, cats can
suddenly read at a twelfth-grade level. They can't talk and they can't
write, but they can read silently and understand the text. Many cats
love this new skill, because they now have something to do all day while
they lay around the house; however, a few cats become depressed,
because reading forces them to realize the limitations of their
existence (not to mention the utter frustration of being unable to
express themselves).
This being the case, do you think the average cat
would enjoy Garfield, or would cats find this cartoon to be an
insulting caricature?

Does the average cat even have a sense of humor? Anyways, I can't say I've met all the cats in the world, but I'm willing to say that they wouldn't be offended. I mean, Garfield lives with a dog so right there he's overcome racial tensions. Plus, this cat eats lasagna. None of this 'food from a cat' business. Garfield lives the dream, man. What's not to love?
