Strip by: Garlene1987

{Garfield is on the fence}
Garfield: I'm lonely. I think I'll see if I can find Arlene
{Suddenly, Shampoo in her cursed cat form approaches}
Shampoo: Nihao!
Arlene: You two-timing swine!+-
Garfield: What happened?

The author writes:

There have been times in the strip when Garfield and Arlene's relationship has reminded me of Ranma and Akane's from Ranma ½, particularly their mid-80s bickering. Arlene's reaction in this comic particularly reminded me of Akane's overreactions, so I decided to put Shampoo in there. What's Shampoo doing in Muncie, Indiana anyway? Maybe she took directions from Ryoga.

Original strip: 1984-05-14.
