Marvelous Marvs

Time passes so quickly. It's hard to believe Marvin's two year gotcha-day is fast approaching. There were so many times with him where I didn't think he would live, but now he seems stable and going strong! He's also got some surprises tucked away in his furs.

All year round, even on the hot days of July, Marvin prefers to sprawl on his heating pad with no cushion. The heat must feel good on his old bones.

And then the other day he did something that completely shocked me! He was actually using the super soft, squishy bed! 


Oh Marvin, you are a joy and delight all tucked into a tiny chocolate kitty package. What a lovely gift you are. Remember what Marvin looked like before he was trapped? So glad he's inside and loved now, the way all kitties are meant to be.



In other news, I recently had the joy of visiting my happy place - Isle Royale National Park, in Michigan. My favorite place on the planet.

My heart is restored now.

  5. Two years! I wouldn't have thought he'd make it this long either, he IS a tough fellow. :-)

    Hurrah for your happy place. It looks like an amazing spot.

  8. That is a super shot of your happy place. I love that large bench at the end of the pier.

    Marvin... I have thought about him and the others very frequently. Thank you so much for updating us. I miss learning of them.

  10. Sweet Marvin...so happy to hear that he's doing well. Guess he must decided to try the cushy bed and found that it REALLY helped his old/arthritic bones/joints feel good. The egg-crate foam is the BEST for pets with achy bones--better than memory foam, etc. Ah...Isle Royale--I've seen it many a time from the distance (top of the 'hill' on the Keweenaw peninsula. It's on my bucket list
