all is well

Time has been flying and I'm overdue for a post!

Marvin has been doing fantastic!! He's gained back all of the weight he had lost and he's better than ever. He's become quite the cuddle-monster! He's much more engaging now and seems to be enjoying his new pain-free life.

He's even being more generous with his purr. He has a very quiet purr, you really have to listen to notice it and he's typically not been one to use it much, but lately, he's all about the purr!

I'm so thrilled he's doing so well!

This is the view from Mt. Tom, in Woodstock, Vermont. We hiked up there last weekend, it was lovely. I love how pretty Vermont is. Mt. Tom has a long history as a sustainable forest.

A few weeks ago I traveled to Tennessee for work as I've been doing.

Very beautiful sunsets in Tennessee

Oliver is still every bit the dream. Every day I see him, happy and cozy inside, my heart bursts with gratitude. Dreams do come true.

Pierre gets bolder and bolder! Here he is choosing to share space with me! 

Mr. Fluffy is getting more affectionate and cuddly by the day! I'm a firm believer that one can never have too many cuddle-kitties, especially fluffy ones!

Dreamy comfy Oliver

Rose still firmly believes humans are evil. 
After watching the news this week, I'm starting to think she's right.

Theo's been enjoying a lot of time under blanket forts. If I forget to build him one, he squirms his way under blankets and makes his own. Like Nahum, he continues to practice his affectionate skills.

This weekend is the Tunbridge Wool and Sheep Festival! We plan to go and take in some more fun! Fall is such a lovely time to be back in New England!! Fresh apples, apple cider, cider donuts, and soon stunning foliage! 

Have a lovely cat-filled weekend!


  1. Having this happy-filled post is a joy to read!!! Like an extra birthday present to me. :-)

  2. So wonderful to see all the furry one's doing well. You seem very happy in New England! Hugs!

  3. Marvin, we are so happy for you. We wish we could hear your loud loving purrs. Keep on fighting. Love seeing Oliver nicely fitted in the cat bed. Love that photo so much. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. Have a great weekend.

  4. I have been praying for Marvin. I am so happy he is feeling better.

  5. I am so happy to hear that Marvin is doing good, happy dance!

  6. Dad loves the photo taken from Woodstock. He an mom are both New Englanders, and he says it made him miss it a little more.

  7. Terrific to hear all is well, and that Marvin is feeling much better. Daily now, Manny leads me into the parlor, where he lays down on the futon for me to hug him and give pets. He purrs, but this is the only time I hear him do it. So, naturally, I let him lead me into that parlor as often as I can!

  8. oooh, that festival sounds like fun! I'll have to look into it.

    So nice to see all the kitties doing so well. Give Marvin a kiss for me

  9. Long time no see. Glad to see that Marvin, Oliver, and the rest are all doing OK!
