An Irish man who created an Internet sensation by taking the plump orange cat out of "Garfield" comic strips is publishing a book full of his catless creations.

"Garfield Minus Garfield" will be published this fall by Ballantine Books. It's being created with the cooperation of "Garfield" creator Jim Davis and his Delaware County-based company, Paws Inc.

Dan Walsh of Dublin, Ireland, created the Web site in February, filling it with "Garfield" comic strips that had been stripped of Garfield the cat -- and most other characters aside from Garfield's put-upon owner, Jon.

The revamped comic strips leave Jon to ponder life alone, appearing to talk to himself or reacting to nothing.
