First Class Feline is the first segment from the thirty-first episode of Garfield and Friends.


After Garfield tries to mail Nermal to Abu Dhabi, Jon decides to play a trick on him.


One day Garfield is asleep when as usual Nermal wakes him up and gets stuck inside a vase. Eventually getting himself out, Nermal asks Garfield if he knows any other tricks. Smiling he says he does as he goes into a song and dance about mailing him to Abu Dhabi where he later stuffs Nermal in a package for that destination. Going back to bed he wonders if his conscience will keep him awake but eventually dismisses that fact.

Outside, Jon and Odie are walking back to the house with a stuffed cat who Jon plans to mail to his cousin. At the front door they see the package and Jon tells Odie to open it up believing Nermal to be inside. After freeing Nermal, Jon laments that Garfield is always doing this and thinks he should be taught a lesson, which the other two agree.

First they place the stuffed cat into the same box Nermal was stuffed in and place it outside then Jon cooks up some soup and uses a hair dryer to blow the smell to Garfield attracting him. The smell leads him to the kitchen where he is ready to eat soup. However Jon says he made the soup in honor of Nermal and tells him he has to wait for him to come. Hearing this Garfield races back to the package to free Nermal while Jon and Odie snicker. However he sees the package already picked up by the mail leaving him shocked while the three inside the house laugh. At first it was funny, but then Garfield jumps into an ongoing mail truck into a bag of letters to get the package back.

Realizing that the joke has gone too far, Jon, Odie and Nermal chase after the truck heading to the central post office to get him back. As Garfield is reading through the letters he instantly gets caught in the conveyor belt of packaging and posting. He barely misses getting stamped and lands in another mail bag where he finds the package where he believes Nermal is inside. Upon opening it, he finds the stuffed cat and wonders what is going on.

Garfield then overhears Jon, Odie and Nermal looking for him, with Jon saying they should find him before the joke gets Garfield sent to Abu Dhabi. To get payback, Garfield uses the stuffed cat to his advantage while Jon and the others split up to look for him. Using some ink, Garfield paints stripes on the cat's tail similar to his and stuffs it back into the box addressed to Abu Dhabi with only the tail exposed.

Upon their search, Odie spots the package with the tail. The three try to catch the package as it enters a plane taking off for Abu Dhabi. Outside, Garfield hails a taxi for home while the three head home, sad at the apparent loss of Garfield. Upon returning home, they are shocked and glad to see Garfield waiting in the kitchen. Jon apologizes, promising to never to play tricks on him again. Garfield then promises to never try to mail Nermal to Abu Dhabi again. He then grabs Nermal and stuffs him in another package, this time addressed to the North Pole. After the package is picked up by Herman Post, Garfield states "a promise is a promise".
