Gypsy Cat

Friday night Marvin, the peripatetic Waldron gypsy cat showed up on our porch meowing pathetically as if he hadn't eaten for WEEKS. Does he look like it? Marvin has been on the island for 4 or 5 years. His first owners moved off and gave him to someone else. But he prefers wandering around the island from house to house between bouts of living off the land. He has been sitting on all our laps watching movies with us, sleeping on Siri's bed with her, and taking over the sofa whenever he can. Our other cats, Chas and Fang are not amused but no fights have broken out. We're curious to see how long he plans on staying. He's a huge cat, bigger than any of our cats, so we'll have to stock up on more kibbles if he makes an extended stay. Meanwhile he is completely welcome. We're enjoying his visit.

  1. I love these wandering cats - they are so independent aren't they. They almost suggest they are doing you a favour by visiting - which I suppose they are in a way. Lucky you to have him calling in.
