I bet you guys thought that we had dropped off the edge of the world! SO I thought I would drop you a line and let you know how hectic life is at CASA DEL MARV!
About 3 weeks ago Mom and Alex moved everything in the living room so Mom could start painting the walls. Last fall Mom bought new flooring for the whole house and our human brother wanted to start laying it. Forgetting that Mom is old and decrepit, he figured Mom could paint the walls in a week or so.
Not only is Mom old and decrepit and takes forever to climb a ladder, there was other "stuff" that has meant that Mom is still painting. (40 year old real wood unpainted panelling, removal of 20 year accumulation of cigarette smoke, yada, yada that means 4 (or more) coats in each wall and the ceiling), Mom is now on the last wall in the living room. (it is Masonite panelling that has a moulded diamond pattern). But enough on Mom complaining!
To top it off, our Uncle Fred passed away. He is our cousin Jewel's Dad and he has been very ill for a couple of years. Mom will be going to Vancouver next week for the celebration of his life. We would like to go, but we (except for Cinnamon) are not fond of that long drive! Besides, who would take care of our human brother Alex?
What do you think I am doing in this photo?
It is a CATNIP rolly ball toy that our human brother got for us! Jo Jo whaps it really hard and knocks it off the sticky stuff that holds it on the book case, but I, Marv, like to lick it!
Besides enjoying catnip, I have been hanging in the backyard with Jo Jo.
And shrew, mole, vole and mouse hunting!
I have been "gifting" Mom a shrew every morning. She is most appreciative, but I've not yet seen her eat one...
I want you to know how thankful I am for all my furrends. And I am thankful that you guys are always there for me! I am thankful that I live in such a wonderful place and I am thankful that I can come and visit you guys too!
And Mom is thankful that she is not going through what Brian's Peeps is! She can remember when Queen Nellie went into heat! So of you may remember what a Cat From Hell she was and boy oh boy, Mom says it was really an experience!
All this little cat from Persia can say is my heart just keeps thanking you!
We are Thankful for you ALL!!!
