Cactus Jake is the foreman of the Polecat Flats ranch, and a friend of Jon.


Jake has a habit of saying Jon and Garfield's names wrong, usually calling Jon "Johnny Boy" and the latter "Garfunkel" or "Gargamel".

Every time Garfield wears a cowboy outfit, Jake always believes that he is a real cowboy named "Shorty" (Jon would always recognize "Shorty" as Garfield, however).

He is married to Miss Annie and has three sons- Cactus Joe, Cactus Jimmy and Cactus Josh- and one daughter- Cactus Jackie. Jake and his sons seem somewhat protective of Jackie; when Jon agreed to go on date with her, Jake and his sons insisted on coming along with them, and one of Jake's sons admitted beforehand that they're "particular" about who Jackie dates.
