So… I think beloved comics page feline and king of comedy “Garfield” is a bakeneko. Shocking, I know. Here is my evidence:
According to Japanese folklore, a cat may become a bakeneko by meeting any of the following three conditions:
-Living over ten years of age.
-Reaching one kan (3.75 kg or 8.25 lbs) in weight
Once transformed, bakeneko gain a range of paranormal powers. These powers are used to haunt the household they live in. They include:
-menacing (even eating) sleeping humans
That’s a check.
-walking on its hind legs.
-They may use their shape-shifting powers to live a life as a human would normally …
-… sometimes by taking the place of a member of the household after killing and consuming them in their sleep.
Bakeneko also have the ability to eat anything in their way, regardless of size
Bakeneko are also sometimes said to have the power to enter someone’s dreams.
The evidence is all right there, people. Garfield is a godless youkai and must be exterminated. Fuck you Garfield.
