Jon Arbuckle often gets calls from neighbors about his cat destroying their flowerbeds or harrasing them.
His hatred towards spiders always results with them being whacked with a rolled newspaper or stomped by his foot. He occasionally does the same to other insects such as flies (in some strips, he is shown to hate flies more than spiders).
He likes to eat ferns and other types of flowers. Some strips feature common flowers talking to each other, only to be eaten by Garfield in the end.
When outside, Garfield enjoys teasing other dogs; they are usually chained up or smaller in size than Garfield. However, he occasionally faces the misfortune of the chain/rope not being securely tied (resulting in Garfield being chased and/or injured by the dog), or the dogs are not as small/weak as they seem.
Next to Odie, Jon is his favorite person to prank. When Jon is asleep, Garfield often goes to extreme measures to wake him up -- whether it be hopping on his stomach, waking him with a goblin's mask on his face, throwing his bed out of the window with him in it, frightening Jon, Knocking Him Off The Bed After Playing The Radio And Talking Like A Drill Sargent With Odie Playing The Cymbals, or even attempting to throttle him (as he does in some early strips), Garfield always seems to have the upper hand on Jon's sleeping habits.
On January 8, 2009, he was elected into the bad habit hall of fame. Afterwards, he crumpled up the certificate and tossed it behind him.
Story of Joining Sora's TeamEdit
When Sora sent Sylvester and Tweety to find the Keyhole in Garfield's world, Garfield met the two when they met Odie. When Sylvester and Tweety told them about the Heartless and True Organization XIII, Garfield and his friends decide to help, and when they Keyhole appeared in Garfield's house, it was a showdown between the QueenBeez and the good guys. After the showdown, the Keyhole opened a new pathway and Sora unlocked it. Then Garfield, Jon, Odie, Nermal, Arlene, Liz Wilson, Squeak, and Harry joined the team to help put a stop to Maleficent and Master Xehanort.
