Garfield is a beautiful adult male cat who is 10 to 12 years old. His owner, and best friend died unexpectedly in June of 2021. His owner was my friend. I am committed to finding a good home for him. Garfield and my friend were very closely bonded. Over the years Garfield has lived in Los Angeles, Napa, and more recently Oakland. He is in good health and has adapted very well to his most recent home of the past three years. When outdoors he enjoys climbing the small tree in the yard as well as the fence. And yet he doesn’t chase birds. He returns home quickly and regularly. He responds positively to affection. And, he shared his home with another adult cat for nearly a year. He was dearly loved his owner. And now he seems to have adjusted somewhat to having lost her. He responds happily to affection. Garfield is very gentle. He accepts my affection easily.
Garfield’s owner was renting a cottage on my property where I live, in Oakland. His owner died suddenly of a heart attack.
In the following two months, her family removed her possessions, but was unable to find a home for Garfield. I volunteered to find
a home for him, and they agreed. I already have a cat who is 13 years old, and lives indoors.
I’ve been feeding Garfield two cans of food each day. He eats well, and he appears to be very healthy. When I feed him, he plays
in the yard for a while. He enjoys being petted. And he is always waiting for his food when I bring it to him. I know that his previous owner LOVED HIM DEARLY. She spoke of him as if he were her best friend. I don’t know if he’s up to date on his vaccinations. He is litterbox trained. Garfield has lived with one other cat. And before he lived with my tenant, I know that he lived his early years in a family with two young, school-aged boys. Garfield is litterbox trained. Garfield likes to be outside in the yard. And he returns home regularly.
