National Garfield the Cat Day

JUNE 19TH is National Garfield the Cat Day. For The Love Of Alex is celebrating the fictional cartoon character. The observance celebrates Garfield and the entertainment he brings us.

There are many ways to celebrate the lovable tabby cat! Garfield fans everywhere share the tabby cat’s love of lasagna or contempt for Mondays. But beyond that, they also know he loves to sleep in sunbeams. They’re fond of his sense of humor and understand Jon’s love of animals.

In a world of cat lovers, this day offers some fun ways to celebrate:

Share a selfie with your tabby cat on our facebook page.
Bake some cookies or cupcakes for Garfield’s birthday.
Read the comic strip.
Watch a Garfield episode.
Share your Garfield collectibles.
See how many Garfield’s you can name (that aren’t a cat).
Pickup a Garfield coloring book.
