Garfield The Cat

  • Birth unknown
  • Death Dec 2007 Florida, USA
  • Burial Unknown
  • Memorial ID 65261236

From his In memoriam at Journey's End Animal Sanctuary:

Garfield was an enormous cat who weighed 19 pounds when he arrived at Journey's End. He was found as a stray in nearby Deltona. No one claimed him after repeated ads in the newspaper, so he was able to come to Journey's End. He was somewhat shy and sometimes liked to hide.

Garfield was only with us for a few months. After arriving, he lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time. He developed a serious case of fatty liver disease, a common problem in cats, and had to be put down. We don't know why he lost so much weight, but it might have been that he was grieving. (loss of family/owner?)


Then my best friend
on all the Earth
sits upon my lap
not to be comforted
but to soothe.

Wizard of the heart,
my cat,
when the world fails
or the day weighs,
with a wave of the tail
or soulful glance he
makes the Universe
shine once more.
