“I love cats. I wanted a cat. So what do I do? I go to the pet store and ask for a cat. What do they give me? … A lasagna with fur and fangs.” – Jon

The laziest, most cynical cat in the world is turning 39, and we’re celebrating Garfield’s birthday with a list of his favorite catchphrases, quotes, and oft-repeated words!

“I hate Mondays.” Mondays hate Garfield even more than he hates them.

“I’m not overweight, I’m under-tall.” Perspective!

“If you want to look thinner, hang around people fatter than you.” Again, perspective!

“Rats!” When something goes wrong.

“The plot thickens.” Garfield says this when something funny happens with Jon.

“If you’re patient… and wait long enough… Nothing will happen.” Very astute, Garfield.

“Diet is a ‘die’ with a ‘t”. They say you become a better person (or feline, in this instance), if you have less on your plate.
