This has to be the cutest thing I've seen in awhile!
We're all familiar fat, but fluffy, lazy, tabby cat who loves lasagna!
Well...for one Oklahoma City mom, she was determined to find a real-life Garfield cat for her daughters because they've become obsessed! Clara Edwards, when she served her two daughters, 4-years-old and 2-years-old, lasagna dinner, one of her girls was really upset Garfield wasn't there to join them.
“She just started crying because she thought Garfield would be there to eat lasagna with her,” Edwards told AZ Central. “So we were like, ‘Oh, no! What do we do?’ I’m not sure how she decided that Garfield was going to be at our house to eat lasagna.”
Edwards came up with a plan, and its quite genius. She knew she couldn't have the real fictional character Garfield over for dinner and she didn't have a cat. Edwards created fliers asking complete strangers to 'borrow their cat.'
“Wanted: to BORROW an orange cat for 24-48 hours, to have a lasagna dinner with Garfield-loving 4-year-old and 2-year-old children,” the flier read. “Will return cat happy and cared for. Cat will not be required to eat lasagna if contraindicated."
She made it clear she wasn't looking to take the cat off their hands permanently.
“Please take your cat back at the end. Not looking to adopt,” Edwards wrote. She signed it: “An increasingly desperate (but not crazy) mom-of-two with no friends that own orange cats.”
Twitter user @lauren_jade44 saw the flyer at her father's work and tweeted it out while asking people to help the mom out.
Her tweet exploded and was retweeted over 10,000 times! Many people posted pictures of their own "Garfield" cats and even some next to a box of lasagna. Clever right?
Edwards finally came across a cat owner who was willing to help play along, and they ended up going over for dinner.
Although, the Garfield-like-cat they ended up using for the lasagna dinner was on the skinny side, her daughters had such a good time!
The girls even set up a table for their dinner with "Garfield."
Probably one of the cutest dinners ever!
