Garfield is an orange, fuzzy tabby cat born in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant who immediately ate all the pasta and lasagna in sight, thus developing an obsession with lasagna and pizza.
He disdains any form of exertion or work. In addition to being lazy and fat, Garfield is also pessimistic, narcissistic, cynical, sarcastic, sardonic, and smug. He enjoys destroying things, mauling the mailman, and tormenting the dog. In short, he’s a spoiled cat who rules the roost.
