What Kind of Cat Breed Is Garfield?

Do cats and dogs have actually the same character as Garfield and Odie? We have not been able to observe that cats eat lasagna, but there are definitley some similarities ;)

There are countless discussions about which cat breed Garfield is. It has long been assumed that he is an Exotic or American Shorthair, others say he is just a tabby cat with an orange coat.

Some are sure that the scientific name of his breed must be "felis silvestris catus cartoonis" - which is a joke, because it means "cartoon house cat" and that does'nt exist, of course.


What Kind of Dog Breed Is Odie?

Which dog breed does Odie represent? It is believed that he is a mix between dachshund, terrier and beagle. Garfield would definitely not agree. He is convinced that Odies dog breed is "clown".
