In the world of Manfried the Man, the roles of cats and humans are reversed: humanoid cats are in charge, while tiny, dim-witted, loveable little people are kept as pets.
Manfried, a stray man taken in by slacker Steve Catson, becomes the Garfield to his John Arbuckle: lazy, selfish, and sometimes maddening in his weird human behaviour. But ultimately the pair depend on each other to get through life s troubles.
In this book-length story, Steve find himself stuck with a dead-end job and non-existent love-life, while all his friends are moving on, getting better jobs, getting married and having kittens. When Manfried runs away from home, Steve suddenly loses the one constant in his life, and has to muster all his meagre resources to find his best friend and bring him home safe.
By story’s end both Steve and Manfried realise they’re capable of so much more than they thought.
