Garfield is an overweight, lazy and free-spirited orange cat who lives with his owner Jon Arbuckle in a cul-de-sac in Ferndale, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. Garfield passes his time by antagonizing Jon and teasing his aggressive neighbor, Luca the Doberman. Aside from Jon, Garfield maintains an unlikely friendship with a helpful mouse, Louis. Garfield also socializes with his fellow neighborhood cats, Nermal and Arlene.
