When it comes to cats, there is no-one out there better than Garfield. Fact.
Everyone at some point has watched Garfield, or read the comic strip and identified with him as their ultimate spirit animal.
And this is so easy to do because Garfield loves things that we all love. He is a fan of lasagne, pizza, loves a strong cup of coffee, and most of all, he hates Monday mornings too.
But the best about Garfield is that he is full of pure confidence, and refuses to accept that he is anything less than perfect.
1. So lazy
Garfield loves sleeping, napping and generally relaxing and doing very little.
Basically just like you every single day, until the alarm clock goes off and you have to get up and actually adult. So unfair.
2. Loves coffee
There is no sweeter joy in life than when that hot cup of coffee touches your tongue and brings you back to life, and Garfield is also aware of this.
A cat who understands your love of coffee and drinks copious amounts of it. What a perfect being.
Those with red or ginger hair often get a tough time, but not Garfield.
He owns his colour and will not accept anything short of compliments on it.
4. Hates Monday mornings
Sometimes you wish you could ring your boss at 7am on a cold, miserable Monday morning and quietly explain that just like Garfield you also hate Monday mornings, and therefore you will be taking a rest day today.
Never happens, but you can still dream, right?
5. Doesn’t believe in diets
According to Garfield you should eat as exactly as much as you want, whenever you want.
Can’t really argue with that.
6. Or excerise
Most animals are busy running around, chasing their own tail, or butterflies and whatnot, but not Garfield.
Instead he is strictly anti-exercise, and every time you skip the gym, you think of him and feel a little better.
7. Loves lasagne
Not only does he love food, hate exercise, but he also strongly approves of all lasagne related dishes.
In fact he completely makes it okay to never share a lasagne, and have it all to yourself.
8. Was born in an Italian restaurant
Way better than your safe and sensible story of being born in a plain boring hospital.
You make a mental note to ensure that your child is also born somewhere exciting like Garfield was.
9. Hates raisins
Obviously everyone hates raisins, because they are gross and have a weird slimy texture.
But Garfield realises this too, and decides to be vocal in his views.
A true preacher of the truth.
10. Pure sass
You just wish that you had his humour, his wit and his sarcasm as well.
Instead everyone just ignores you, but perhaps if you were more sassy people would pay you the attention you deserve.
Clearly you need to model yourself on him.
11. Thinks he is perfect
You also wish you had his confidence.
He never lets anyone put him down, he knows he is gorgeous and makes sure everyone else sees it too.
And he quite possibly has more confidence than Queen Bey.
12. His voice
So dry, so emotionless, so understated, yet so iconic.
13. Loves Pooky
He isn’t completely sassy, and even Garfield has a soft side, which he only lets loose around his teddy bear Pooky.
You just wished you had your own version of Pooky. Sigh.
