Mona is a character appearing in "Garfield and Friends" and "The Pussycats".

In "Garfield and Friends", she was the owner of the saloon Mona's, which the Lasagna Kid (Garfield) frequents, who was kidnapped by a stranger, who entered Mona's and was disappointed that he would have to wait until the Kid completed his meal in order to be served. After being saved by him, Mona has the Kid regularly visit her saloon (by ringing a gold supper bell).

In "The Pussycat" series it's revealed she's triplet sister of Penelope Pussycat and Al, being one of the main protagonists of the series.


As saloon owner in "The Life and Times of the Lasagna Kid", she is friendly, caring for customers (especially the Lasagna Kid), and pleased with the Lasagna Kid's appetite for meals she herself cooks. She is known for making "the world's greatest pasta" as well as "beauty [that] could make [one's] heart skip". Most bachelors who visit Mona's attempt to woo her.

Things changed a bit in "The Pussycats" when Mona took Penelope's side in the conflict with Garfield. Her distinctive trait is Mona's despise towards canines she finds "less bright than our feline species."
