Garfield Chews the Fat is a book just packed to the brim with the funny, fat cat named Garfield. Supported by Jon and Odie, Garfield makes his way through life trying to eat and sleep as much as he can. Mondays take their toll on this cat, although, since he doesn't work, I'm not sure why he really cares. And since he is the fattest cat around, the threat of Diet Week always hangs over his head.
