Clara Edwards posted an ad to Craigslist and Instagram before making a printed copy and posting it around town. The ad seeks to “borrow an orange cat for 24-48 hours, to have a lasagna dinner with Garfield-loving 4-year-old and 2-year-old children.” A photo of the flyer posted to social media went viral, and sure enough, Clara was able to find someone with an orange cat to come over for dinner! No word on whether Odie was also invited.
