My Garfield


Garfield
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
As promised, I'm sharing with you another of my kitties today. This is Garfield, named after the cartoon cat.

My Garfield turned 14 years old the end of July. He's big and fat and fuzzy and crabby, Crabby, CRABBY! He's so much like the cartoon cat, it's uncanny! Although we do not feed him lasagna!

Garfield weighs in at 18 pounds, he's extremely fear aggressive so we have to tranquilize him to get him to the vet's office for his shots. He's untouchable, meaning, no one but Scott and I are allowed to touch him. I don't know how he got to be that way because he's been with us since he was 6 weeks old. He's never been abused and has never wanted for anything.

But for Scott and I, he's a big, fat, cuddly teddy bear. So soft and mushy and he buzzes really loud!

As with Lucy and Simba, Garfield was also rescue. Although we did not rescue him. We adopted him from our vet's office.

My he does look grumpy! Maybe he is upset over all the other fur babies you have...taking attention away from him!

It's always the bigger cats that are the biggest babies. My smallest is the toughest.

Thanks for showing him Pam, just like Simba, and Lucy, he is adorable...makes you just want to pinch their cheeks!

Pam, he is ADORABLE! He has the coloring I wanted in my last cat, but Sassafrass Root was another rescue. One of the girls I worked with at a plant found her in the tool crib and brought her over and told me a couple of the gus were going to put her in the compacor and kill her because they"don't like cats". I went over and told them that if I EVER couoght them doing anything like that, I would call the union and the police. I also said "I really don't care for you, but I wouldn't put you in the compactor and kill you, would I?" People can be such butts. Let the kitty live it's life. I also rescued her sister and two brothers(her one brother bit me, that sassy little thing!) They went to a friend of mine with a farm...Dad spoils the kitties rotten. She had a litter of kittens and has been fixed since then.
