Happy Birthday, Garfield

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Garfield the cat was born on June 19, 1978.
 
2     Some people say he weighed 5 pounds 6 ounces when he was born. That is a very big kitten! He lived in an Italian restaurant for a while. Then he ate so much food that the owner sold him to a pet store. Garfield was sure his life was over.
 
3     One day Jon Arbuckle came to the store. Jon took one look at the fat and lazy orange cat.
 
4     "What does he eat?" he asked the storeowner.
 
5     "Everything he can find," the owner said. "He likes lasagna and coffee best."
