This is my Garfield History Page.
Garfield was born June 19 1978 in the kitchen of Mama Leone's Italian restaurant. He was 5 pounds 6 ounces-that's big for a kitten!-and ever since then he loved Italian food. The restaurant owner, forced to choose between Garfield and closing his doors for lack of pasta, sold Garfield to a pet store. Garfield thought he was a goner until Jon Arbuckle walked in the door.
On August 7, 1978 Lyman appeared on Jon's doorstep and said, "I'm cold. I'm hungry. I'm weak. Take me in!" And Jon let him stay, but Lyman had brought a dog. The dog's name was Odie. Then he disappeared on some unknown day and left Odie behind and he never came back.
On October 10, 1978 Garfield found Pooky.
