Garfield's Love For Food In Comic Strips (PHOTOS)

09/17/2013 09:19 am ET | Updated Sep 20, 2013

There are a lot of reasons Garfield is one of our favorite cartoon characters: his unique humor, the relationship he shares with his human, Jon, and the help he has offered in understanding our own felines. But most of all, we love Garfield for the way he is not afraid to declare his love for food.

Known for being a slightly overweight and somewhat lazy cat, Garfield embraces his figure and the enormous amounts of food he is prone to consuming. Some of his favorite meals include lasagna, hamburgers, doughnuts and cake -- basically the well-balanced diet of champions. We collected 20 comic strips that best illustrate Garfield's not-so-hidden feelings on food, and we love him even more after compiling the below list.
