Today we lost our last cat and a valued member of our family, Garfield. He was a very old cat but lately, he’d hadn’t been acting like himself. He started not walking and eating much. Today he started twitching and we knew it was time bring him in to put him to sleep. Death of a pet is not something anyone enjoys going through but it is something that will happen.
Garfield was responsible for many wacky moments in our lives. One involved getting trapped under the bathroom and another hiding in one of the drawers in our camping trailer. One time he went missing for two days until one night Brady spotted him in the backyard. Whenever we got a new Christmas tree, he’d rub his body on the floor and acted like a cat on catnip, it was so cute and hilarious. In an ironic way, Garfield from the comics was almost exactly like our Garfield. Both are huge compared to an average cat. Both wake up there owners up for breakfast. Both liked to eat a lot, chicken for our cat was basically like lasagna for Jon’s cat, he just couldn’t get enough of it. Both cats also like to sleep a lot. our Garfield would sleep on our parent’s bed with all the pillows fenced around him and he also had a stuffed moose that kept him company.
We were lucky to Garfield for as long as we have. While me and family are sad that he’s gone now, we are happy that he has finally reunited with his sister Nermal in Heaven. Garfield and Nermal brought so much joy to our lives. Me and my family will never stop missing both of them and will always keep them in our hearts forever. Thank you, Garfield, and Nermal for all the memories, warmth and comfort you gave our lives. You two will always be a part of our family. We will miss both of you.
In loving memory of Garfield
