A Tabby Named Garfield

Here's a kitty that knows his own mind. For goodness sakes-don't call him fat! Diets are not his thing you'll find. He's a very single minded cat. His very favorite sport is fishing. Running a marathon he'd never do. For a nice long nap is what he's wishing. Annoying Odie might be fun too! He admires himself more every day. No self esteem issues trouble him. Doesn't care what he might weigh. He'll eat lasagna just on a whim. His double chin has been pointed out. Yet he chooses to ignore it all. If you push him too far he will shout "I'm not too fat- I'm just under-tall " written 5/18/2015
