Garfield the cat

This is Chester and Garfield's mom Janna. Thanks everyone for the squees and the welcome to the more-than-one-cat club ;) I had hoped to post one big entry about Garfield coming into our lives but I'm a little slow when it comes to writing and the adjustment to a 2-cat household plus my job (again!) have hampered that plan! Instead, let me write about Garfield in short installments.

Not many weeks back, my husband enticed me to join him on an errand by using Chipotle as bait. After lunch, we were walking to our destination (a New York thing to do) when across the street, there was a small cat adoption event on the sidewalk in front of a pet store (again, a common New York occurrence). I didn't even want to cross the avenue to see the cats (Andy's allergic to cats, except for Chester, and it's emotionally difficult for me to see cats I can't have), but Andy persuaded me.

As we got closer, I saw something I had long hoped to see at an adoption Exotic Shorthair!


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwww, Garfield you look an absolute darling :)xx

  2. Wow - did your Mom's dream come true Chester?
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. Awww what a sweet story! Can't wait to hear more!


  4. We're looking forward to reading the next part of the story too! :-)

  5. Oh, this is gonna' be good :)

  6. All things come to those who wait -- at least, if they wait in the right place.

    If we were a bit more of a cynic, we'd start to wonder if Andy set you up.
