My best friend

   

My cat Simba thinks he is Garfield, not only is there a resemblance he also acts very much like him. He is 14 years old now and is so gentle and soft especially with my grandchildren.


He is a very fussy eater, like Garfield. One minute he wants one kind of cat food then he will turn his nose up and demand another. His favourite is Salmon but chicken comes a close second.


He also has his own spot on the sofa and will make your life a misery until he gets in it. It is placed between myself and my wife as he doesn't like us to get too close.


As you can see he is still a kitten at heart, although his jumping and climbing is not as good as when he was a young lad. He is a total house cat, never goes out was like that from when he arrived at our house all those years ago, very scared of the outside world. Not at all Garfield like.


He has been a great friend and companion over the years and I hope for many more. He loves his photo taken and is happy to pose for me. He has become quiet an expert and often treads the cat walk.




 
    He blinks upon the hearth-rug, and yawns in deep content, accepting all the comforts that Providence has sent. Louder he purrs, and louder, in one glad hymn of praise for all the night's adventures, for quiet, restful days. Life will go on for ever, with all that cat can wish: warmth and the glad procession of fish and milk and fish. Only-the thought disturbs him- he's noticed once or twice, the times are somehow breeding a nimbler race of mice. Alexander Gray

He's beautiful and he obviously crept into your heart. It's strange how they don't like their owners to get together, our cats and dogs were the same. Any sign of affection and the dogs would growl as if to say 'keep off'

tell Simba he is very, very handsome. I love that first photo of him laying there so peacefully. My hubby says these cats are the best ones for pets for families. his daughter used to wear there Morris cat, that is what i call these, around her neck while riding her trike. thanks for sharing your charming and handsome kitty with us.

Wow, what a handsome boy! My daughter would love this post. She has four kitties, each with their own distinct personality. They love getting a little "outdoor" time, but don't stray far.
