Playdemic is welcoming Garfield, the famous food-loving cat, to its Facebook hit Gourmet Ranch this week, just in time for Thanksgiving. The pleasantly plump kitty comes to the game with his friends Odie, Nermal and Pooky for two weeks, starting today.

The Garfield event in Gourmet Ranch will see players growing Garfield-themed ingredients, like Garfield Turkey, Odie Cow, Jon Cinnamon and Pooky Chicken, and then using those items in Fall or Thanksgiving themed recipes, including Maple Glazed Pumpkin Pie, and of course, Thanksgiving Lasagna.

A Thanksgiving quest event has been added to the game, giving players a chance to earn a Garfield Trophy to display in their game, and decorations themed after the cartoon characters are also available.

“Garfield and Gourmet Ranch are a match made in culinary heaven,” said Jim Davis, creator of Garfield, in a statement. “There’s surely nowhere better for Garfield to enjoy, or should I say “pig out”, on a Thanksgiving Day meal that includes delicious gourmet dishes. I’m a bit concerned though. They may never get him to leave!”

Gourmet Ranch has been installed by over 15 million players on Facebook. The game allows gamers to cook grommet dishes with a farm-to-table approach. Players use organic crops and animals to either serve dishes to guests or trade for in-game resources.

Gourmet Ranch currently has over 326,000 monthly active players, according to AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers. It’s available to play for free on Facebook.
