This & That Including What Ails

Ode To Garfield #11

Garfield was given a scare,

Not because I failed to care,

But because he was given female clothes to wear!

Some say Garfield is male,

Then Garfield became female!

Aaargh! Male, female and then finally male! 

Phew!! Wikipedia closed comments finally as male!

Jim Davis drew him male,

Arlene is Garfield’s feline female,

Definitely male! All macho male!

Garfield wears jumper suits when cold, storm with hale,

T shirts and shorts when clothes on sale.

I love my Garfield! Inanimate but definitely male!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ode To Garfield #9

The most loveable part of my inanimate furball has gotta be Garfield’s paws – fascinating to me.

Its feet or I call paws, are cushiony huge whilst its legs are long and thinly attached to a huge torso.

Nothing about my inanimate Garfield is proportional in size!

Head is huge, larger than torso and everything else small except look at those cushiony leg paws!

I love Garfield’s paws. Soft and squooshy it is nice to hug.

Oh Garfield, my lovely inanimate furball,

You are definitely not fat, just undertall!

Head so big, torso attached with huge tail makes you fall.

Your front paws are teeny tiny, cannot throw Odie any ball.

You can only lie on your back, not moving even when I call!

You cannot even stand tall ๐Ÿ˜‰

So why am I such a huge Garfield fan?

Could it be it is because of his orangey skin tones?

Or maybe his adorable huge half opened eyes?

I think it is more his paws!!

Garfield is my comforting inanimate furball ๐Ÿ˜Š – he does not poo nor pee and is quite fuss free to keep ha ha!


Ode To Garfield #8

Garfield is my comfort,

Especially when I’m contorted!

Come rain or shine, twisted in pain,

I’d roar like a lioness without my mane!

Garfield gets stinky poo when over hugged,

Like a child, I’d clutch Garfield tight and snug!

Into the washer Garfield goes,

Whilst I chow on clam chowder by Mo’s!

Wrapped in a bath towel zipped in a laundry bag my Garfield goes,

Toss and tumble, round and round Garfield goes,

I’m all worries and woes!

Only to heave a sigh of relief,

When I see Garfield in belief.

Downy fresh….fresh from the fragrant fields๐Ÿค—!

Garfield Found & Lost

A nice gent I met recently who hails from China found out that I love this orange inanimate cat.

I knew him as business partner i.e. he works with me as a vendor.

On his own accord, during his recent travel home to China, he brought me some Garfields he found in China.

Cuddly pillows…

Drinking mug with lid…

Iphone casing…which I don’t use iPhone.

Sadly as a matter of personal integrity I politely told him thanks but I cannot accept these gifts as company policy does not allow.

He was disappointed and sent me these photos instead. I was happy.


Spotting Garfield In Kiwi Land


NZD79.99 for top and NZD 79.99 for pants.

To pay NZD160.00 for a set of PJs….too much!!


NZD4.99 for a mug….probably will break in my luggage…

Sadly, I gave it a miss!


Oodles Of Garfields

When I am down at work, who you call?

Not Ghostbusters! Though I would love to make Electrical Lord fall!

Full of crappy gall,

His Lordship is probably now at a mall,

Creeping behind a wall,

Spying at minions and springing a surprise call!

Aaah… enough of this horrid screaming banshee of a man…

Soothing views of my furballs…


I love my furballs and I managed to get these photos out from my old folders….



A Cupboard Full Of Garfields



My furballs are all wrapped and placed in the cupboard, on my sofa, bed, wherever they can sit and beautify my pigeon hole๐Ÿ˜‰

This is just one segment of my collection.

It is a alot of work to wrap and unwrap them. But it is the only way to keep my furballs clean. LOL!

I have to buy 500 sheets of cellophane paper at a time to cover them.

Thankfully I have Mr Ex to help me buy in bulk and heave ho these wraps to my pigeon hole.

On days when I am too tired or hurting from pain, then I cannot do much.

But on better days, I will spend time unwrapping and rewrapping each Garfield.

What is unique about these Garfields is that each one is lovingly given to me.

Nary a cent did I spend in buying this collection. ๐Ÿ˜Š Each furball is a gift.

A gift on special occasions, no occasions, illnesses, post hospitalisation, in hospitalisation…after a spat with Mr Ex (*I got a lot from these fights!!)

Since they came with love, I shower each furball with same amount of love or more.

The first Garfield I received was in 1986.

Hope you will enjoy this little peek of my furballs and thank you for sharing my loony craze for Garfields!

I never looked back as my family of Garfields grew and grew..๐Ÿ˜ƒ


From Jim Davis To Mour!!!

I received this personal hand drawn caricature of Garfield from Jim Davis.

He sent this to me when he found out about my collection of furballs ๐Ÿ˜‰ through newspaper write ups on my exquisite collection of Garfields๐Ÿ˜Š

Yup!! My furballs and I were interviewed by 2 newspapers ha ha!


It was addressed to my name but I removed it for purposes of this post.

I was deeply appreciative when I received it.

I hope you will enjoy seeing this ๐Ÿ˜Š



Joy, hope & love…..this threesome is the theme of my last 2 posts and this makes 3.

Am I not adorable?


I am forever lovable and huggable!


Love amongst my furry friends…


Obviously… is my huggable Garfield๐Ÿ˜Š

Garfield hugs folks….may you have joy, hope and love always…perhaps you can share your joy, hope and love too!!๐Ÿ˜€


Here’s Looking At You Kid


My favorite inanimate furball Garfield wearing a pant suit that belonged to my nephew.

My nephew is all grown up now and so my furball is happily wearing his clothes.

On days like this….I need a Garfield Hug!!

My security blanket or inanimate pet! I am grateful he needs little attention and lets me squoosh him without growling when “over squeezed” ha ha…

I am a child at heart….let my inner child roar ha ha…

Goodnight folks…sweet dreams and Garfield Hugs ๐Ÿ˜€
