Strip by: DanielBT

Jean: Look at me, Nermal. I look awful.
Nermal: No you don't.
Nermal: What if you got a face-lift?
Nermal: And tummy tuck.
Nermal: And loosened up.
Nermal: And didn't slouch.
Nermal: Now you look awful.

The author writes:

Not long after I submitted my European Garfield, I thought it'd be fun to contribute something with other French comics, and Nermal seemed to be the closest comparison for this strip, even though Garfield was the one who originally said everything, and some of the lines were moved around a bit.

The image is taken from a French autobiographical webcomic, Maliki. Of the two cats the author has, Fleya is the hyperactive one while Feanor is fat, but also extremely anxious. The catgirl next to the author in the last panel is neither, but one of two catgirls who periodically pop up from time to time. There's an English section up for anyone who's interested, though it doesn't have as many strips as the main archive.

Original Maliki: #291. English translation here.

Original Garfield: 1990-05-27.

Original strip: 1990-05-27.
