Hello my name is Marvin, I was found in a dumpster when I was a youngster and rescued from a SPCA sponsored pet store in Ottawa, Ontario by this pretty university girl. Life was pretty cool until the girl left university for the summer for a job on the road and I had to find a new place to hang out. So I was placed in a crate, drugged and sent on a couple of planes 4,000 km away.
My new caretaker was older, fatter but had a pretty neat place to live right on the ocean with lots of other critters. I grew to be a handsome, healthy (25 lb) fella. I loved the beach and all the birds. In the evening the raccoons visited the deck to eat the plums that fell off the tree. One day I climbed a very large red cedar tree...seemed simple enough going up, however coming down was much more than I expected. Spent four days up that tree because some guy said "we don't get cats out of trees anymore".
Six months after my arrival I was on my way back to Ottawa. My university girl had graduated and now lived and worked in Ottawa. She had a nice little apartment albeit on the forth floor with NO access to the out of doors and she had a boy friend. One of us had to go and to my surprise it was ME! I'm not sure if the jump off the window sill onto the boyfriends private parts had anything to do with it!
Scaredy cat Kayley and me
Once again it was back across the country to the older fat lady and a life of leisure and laziness on the shores of Haida Gwaii. I share my home with a pretty, scaredy cat called Kayley and occassionally with some annoying foster kittens....I don't know what people see in them, they are so annoying!
