Garth came to The Best Little Cat House in PA in February 2002. He had been dropped off at an ASPCA center in New York because of a heart condition called Cardiomyopathy for which there is no cure. He was not expected to live very long due to his condition. He was absolutely the sweetest cat you can imagine. Garth was a very, very laid back cat, nothing seemed to disturb his leisurely way of life. I’m not sure whether he knew he had a heart condition and that’s why he was so mellow or whether it was just his way. A few years ago there was a fire visible from the Well Room porch. Lynn says that Garth came back in and got her to show her the fire. At the time I photoshopped a picture of Garth with a firemans helmet but Lynn wouldn't let me use it! We don't know how old Garth was when he was brought in the Best Little Cat House, we do know how long we enjoyed his company. Garth died on the 16th of September 2010, you gave us 8 long years Garth, we thank you.
