    And then Jon’s clothes catch on fire, causing Jon to run around the house in scorching agony. Not a good way to enjoy your cat’s birthday.

    He doesn’t look a day over 175.

    Four decades. Hard to believe the cat lasted this long (especially with his dietary habits… or lack thereof).

    Either way, we’re glad he’s still around. Happy 40th, Garf.

    The first if not one of the first comic strips I read in the funny papers back in the early 90s. And read his books in a NY public library many years ago. Watched the cartoon “Garfield & Friends” as a kid. Then started reading them online in March 2010. And still love the strip to this very day. Happy 40th birthday, buddy! Here’s to 40 more. And thank you, Mr. Jim Davis for creating such an awesome, lovable, cool cat.

    To put Garfield into perspective, in the year his strip debuted…

    >Jimmy Carter was President of the United States.>Carter helped Menachem Begin of Israel and Anwar Sedat of Egypt sign a peace treaty at Camp David.>Iran was under the rule of the Shah instead of the Ayatollah.>There was this thing called the Soviet Union, and Leonid I. Brezhnev was its dictator.>The Vietnam War was three years in America’s rearview mirror.>The US still controlled the Panama Canal Zone.>Germany was split into West and East, and Berlin was still divided by the Wall of Shame.>Family Feud was in its second year on the air on ABC Daytime.>Wheel of Fortune was on NBC Daytime with Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford hosting.>The soap opera “Dallas” debuted on CBS in prime time.>Kentucky won its fifth NCAA basketball title, defeating Duke in the finals behind Jack Givens’ 44 points.

    I’m going to have lasagna for dinner tonight to celebrate Garfield’s 40th birthday!
