In Garfield: The Movie Happy Chapman, the main antagonist, was handling a clothed Persnikitty a.k.a Sir Roland (the cat of the show).
Soon after it's revealed that he has an allergy to cats and that's why he doesn't like to touch cat's fur directly.
He wishes to have a dog in his show so that he doesn't need to handle that cat anymore.
Some days after that, he has Odie the Dog in the show. But he handles him again in a cloth.
Sorry for the low quality of the latter photo.
