Happy Birthday Garfield

Garfield — the lazy yet super cute cat celebrates his birthday today. But being as lazy as he is we don’t expect anything, left alone a celebration, from him. We guess he will just enjoy it by himself lazying around with a cup of coffee and a plate full of Lasagna.

A little background:
Garfield is a comic created by Jim Davis. The comic strip chronicles the life of the title character, Garfield – the cat, Jon Arbuckle – the human and Odie – the dog. Garfield was born on June 19 in the kitchen of Mamma Leoni’s restaurant. The comic focuses on Garfield‘s laziness, obsessive eating, coffee and disdain of Mondays and diets.

This Italian cat was not only seen in comic books but appeared in movies, birthday themes, cartoons and many more.

Today as Garfield celebrates his birthday, here are 5 reasons why we love this lazy coffee loving cat:

He Hates Mondays:


So like all of us, Garfield also hates Monday mornings. Just like Garfield we wish that Monday never comes.

He’s Too Lazy To Do Anything:



All that Garfield loves is sleep and relax the entire day. Well, who doesn’t right? He doesn’t like to do any work be it even just wandering around.

He Is Perfect:


This Italian cat believes that he is just perfect. He never lets anyone put him down, he knows he is gorgeous and makes sure everyone sees it too. He is just too confident about himself. Well, I wish we all were too.

He Loves Coffee And Lasagna:



He is never over with coffee and lasagna. He loves to drink lots and lots of coffee. Now, who wouldn’t love to have a cat who loves coffee and shares a cup with you. I mean he is the perfect coffee date you can get.

Coming back to lasagna, this cat never shares that. He has basically tried every type of lasagna and never gets tired of eating it.

A Big NO To Diets And Exercise:


Diet? What is that? This is exactly what Garfield feels about dieting. He believes in eating how much ever you want to.

Exercise? Duh-uh no…. If you hate exercising and going to the gym, then don’t worry you got a company. As we call him lazy he is so because he hates running around.

Well, whoever you are we love you Garfield and you are the best pet cat anyone can have. Thank you, Jim Davis, for introducing us to Garfield.

Happy Birthday you lazy but adorable cat!
