Arlene is an anthropomorhic alley cat and the love interest of comic strip character Garfield.
Arlene is pink, slim, and considered gorgeous. She has enormous eyes, a big coat of lipstick and a gap between her two front teeth which Garfield occasionally makes fun of.
Being a stray, she doesn't have a permanent home. She has taken shelter in a trashcan, a cardboard box, an abandoned movie theater, etc.
When she appears in the comic strip, she is usually seen dating Garfield on or near his backyard fence.
She constantly ridicules Garfield for his gluttony and selfishness, but he is too lazy to change his bad habits.
Although their relationship is rocky, they're still together and will likely be until Garfield's strip is retired.
