Arlene   Arlene

Garfield’s girlfriend. She is a pink-furred cat with a long neck and a hole between her two frontal teeth Garfield often makes fun of. She once wished their relationship would take a few steps, but Garfield does not seem to notice. Garfield once quipped in the early strips that he and Arlene have an apparent love-hate relationship: Garfield loves himself, and Arlene hates that. Once, while Garfield was waiting for Arlene to come to a date, another beautiful cat walks up to Garfield and greets him. At the same time, Arlene appeared, and quickly got enraged. In the next strip, Arlene called Garfield a “cad”, but Garfield clears up the misunderstanding, and Arlene forgives him.
