Strip by: Mr B Natural

Jon: Happy diet, Garfield. Here's a banana for breakfast
Jon {typing}: 'sup tumblr, my cat is now 100% vegan. u mad?
{A Tumblr post is shown with Jon's comment in a quote template followed by:}
Post: Arbuckle confirmed for animal abuser
Post: And here we see Jon Arbuckle enforcing a vegan/vegetarian/fruitarian diet on his cat. As anyone on Tumblr should be able to tell you by now, that's animal abuse. This time, Arbuckle is not merely using the possibility of abuse as a threat - even a hyperbolic one - he's straight-up performing the act of abuse, for all to see. Garfield has the right idea here: Shooting his abuser in self-defense, which Jim Davis is callous enough to use as a punchline. Retaliation against abuse is no joke, Mr. Davis.
Jon: My blog is getting edgier!

The author writes:

So I was looking for Garfield strips when I stumbled across this truly bizarre blog dedicated to documenting the various atrocities committed by one Jon Arbuckle. One of the posts happened to be a perfect response to an SRoMG strip.
