ONE of our favourite sites is Garfield Without Garfield. We love the orange fur lunk but he can get a trying. What was he like before he became Garfield? Cats have nine lives, so what was Garfield like before? Garfield’s handler cartoonist Jim Davis thought about that. He created Primal Self, a look back explored further in the 1984 book Garfield: His 9 Lives:
* “Primal Self”: A cat named Tigger lives as an ordinary housecat until a memory from the past triggers a frightful transformation.
Primal Self did not feature in the 9 Lives cartoon special?
Look out! It’s Garfield the Killer Cat!
