While he might not be into noshing on lasagna or chasing Odie around, the SPCA of Hancock County's "Pet of the Week", Garfield, will make the perfect cat for someone out there, who is patient and kind. What he's looking for is his very own John, according to Shelter Manager, Cole.

"Meet our big orange tabby with golden eyes and a notorious reputation for smacking any hands that wander too close to him. Garfield is a scaredy-cat who lived a hard life as a stray before he was thankfully caught and brought to safety. We found he is more afraid than he is feral, and over time, he is showing his softer side to his caretakers."

He may have personal space issues with humans, but he still digs the company of other cats, Cole says.

"He would love a quiet home that gives him plenty of space and time to come around on his own terms. Garfield loves other cats, especially ones that are mellow or sweet. His favorite pastimes are lounging on pillows with his friends and catching sun rays on the windowsill."

"He’s ready for a home with no children and other cats, so come by and meet him in the Green Room at the SPCA - please just remember, he’s shy so take your time introducing yourself to him!"
