We all know and love Grumpy Cat and his vaguely dissatisfied demeanor, but have you ever seen Garfi? Next to him, Grumpy Cat looks like he’s thinking about rainbows and catnip. Garfi is a majestic looking long haired feline with fur that appears as soft as a cloud and an expression that seems to say, “I want to claw your ankles off.”

But what if he’s just misunderstood? Everyone who sees him seems so convinced that he’s enraged about something. What if, behind his seemingly angry countenance, he’s just thinking something deep and profound? What if he’s, basically, the Jack Handey of cats?


Though we have no real way of truly knowing what he’s thinking, we imagine that this could very well be the case.  We can practically hear the deep thoughts running through his mind as Garfi stares toward the camera, his kitty eyebrows lowered in a scowl of concentration. He’s simply pondering life’s mysteries…really, really intensely.
