National Garfield the Cat Day!! #GarfieldTheCatDay

Found on Pinterest


"National Garfield The Cat Day was first celebrated in 1998 on the 20th anniversary of the comic strip and Garfield’s birthday. Boca Raton City Council Member, Wanda Thayer, proclaimed June 19 as Garfield the Cat Day during surprise birthday party at the International Museum of Cartoon Art in Boca Raton." (My Dad's art is also featured in that museum!!)

I have always loved this snarky, lasagna obsessed cat. He remains one of my all time favorites!

  3. Garfield's comic strip is the first I read and is usually the funniest too. Love Garfield. We have a poster of sorts with a cat hanging from a tree that says Hang In There!!(Not Garfield though). Garfield deserves to have a named for him.
