User Ravenna Tran shared the photo of a flyer on her Twitter account with the caption “she’s a good mom”. The tweet went viral as it was an ad asking to borrow a cat for a mother’s day she wanted to organize for 4 and 2 year olds. The ad read “Wanted: BORROW an orange cat for 24-48 hours, for a lasagna dinner with 4 and 2 year olds who love Garfield.”

She further stated in the ad how the cat would go in a harmless environment. The ad further read, “The cat will be happy and cared for. The cat will not be forced to eat lasagna if contraindicated.”

She also offered the request to the “cat lenders” that they want a friendly cat and would like to return it after the party as the mother was not looking for any adoptions. She said in the ad, “Please. No feral cats. And please take your cat back at the end. I’m not looking to adopt. Thank you.”

As she said, she had no friends who could lend her an orange cat because no one had one. Before posting flyers and ads on Craigslist, Clara Edwards tried to find the required cat in her surroundings. Both the tweet and the ad went viral and on the same thread people got some very adorable responses. One user replied with a picture of her orange cat saying, “Luna has been working on her body Garfield, maybe next time.” While another user also said that if sleep was not his cat’s priority, he would have gladly let the mother borrow the cat. The user replied, “My cat would have worked if he wasn’t sleeping lol.”

Clara then shared the party updates on her account. She posted the photo of “Garfield” wearing a crown and said, “This is Garfield! ! make it possible! My kids loved Garfield! And later in another update, she shared a photo of her two daughters having lasagna with their “Garfield” during the party and said, “One last pic of our Garfield dinner 😻 thanks again!”
