Native Florida resident and photographer Paul Tateosian, ventured with his colleague on a normal day to inspect an empty home in Sarasota. Suddenly, they heard an unexpected noise coming from the corner of the room. He slowly turned around and to find a chubby, ginger fluff-ball singing a choir of meows.
This fat cat’s name is Garfield and he could be Garfield, the cartoons’, grumpy twin brother.
The poor abandoned Persian cat had been living on the property, thirsty and starving. His facial expression definitely says everything: The struggle is real and get the “F” away from me.
Kind-hearted Paul, found a mango hidden in the grass and tried to feed him. The cat loathed it! Not to mention the attention he was getting from Paul and his colleague. He was totally unimpressed, but was curious enough to stay put and watch the two of them.
Here kitty, kitty, kitty….
Were did this cat appear from? Where did he live? Who were his parents? The tenants had already moved out their belongings and the owner of the property never even lived there. Paul felt he had no other choice but to take the unhappy cat with him, despite the fact this kitty seemed to hate the world around him. He told Love Meow, “In Florida, alligators/hawks/ eagles/owls/snakes can take these little guys in a flash and he needed a home.”
Deep in his heart, Garfield is probably is thrilled and thankful to have someone nice take care of him. It’s just that you would never know by his face. What a buzzkill.
