Garfield is a fat, lazy, cynical-but-endearing cat. Born in the kitchen of Mamma Leoni’s Italian restaurant, Garfield weighed five pounds, six ounces at birth and right from the start he showed a passion for Italian food. The restaurant owner, forced to choose between Garfield and closing his doors for lack of pasta, sold Garfield to a pet store. Garfield thought he was a goner until Jon Arbuckle walked in the door.
Garfield loves TV and hates Mondays. He’s all sass and sarcasm, but he has a soft side too. He loves his teddy bear Pooky, and deep down he loves his owner Jon and his dopey pal Odie.
“I needed a name and thought of my grandfather James A. Garfield Davis, a big, cantankerous, cynical man. The name seemed to fit the personality and shape of the character.”
