Marley Updates

THE BIG THING:  First, Ayla and Iza are satisfied if I write about Marley for a FEW days.  They understand "new".  And Marley is learnin about the computer and "Being language" from Iza (who is really good with it).  Iza says that, from his progress, it might only take a week.  That's good news to me; I want the cats to take back their blog as soon as possible.  It's THEIR blog, not mine.  I am just an occasional visitor.

I have some glamor shots for Marley already.  He loves the camera (or is it that the camera loves him?) but he is certainly photogenic!

Glamor Shots...




We had the first whole day without any growls or hissing yesterday.  Ayla seems to have calmed down.  Iza and Marley were already getting along well.  The Ayla test came last night when Marley was nappin behind me on the chair as I watched TV.  Ayla hopped up on the arm of the chair and was surprised to see Marley there.  But she didn't hiss this time.  And she stayed there a few minutes.

That's not to say that anyone will be curled up with Marley real soon, but that WILL happen.  I look forward with confidence to getting a picture of all 3 curled up together some day.

They all ate close together last night at dinnertime.  Pictures of that tomorrow.

Marley is really a very handsome boy! It may not happen overnight, but I think the girls will come to totally accept him as family.

Wow, we can't get online for a couple of days, and amazing things happen. First, you get a great visitor, and second, you get a new brother. Welcome Marley! We know Ayla and Iza are going to be great sisters for you.

Thank you for your comment on yesterday's post TBT. I feel exactly the same way about black and white cats. My husband and I had one who was very important to us. Six months after he died we went looking for a new cat and were only interested in another black and white desexed male. Our friends were a little concerned that we were trying to replicate Mr Fat, but Mr Pooh's personality turned out to be sooooooo different, that there was never any risk of that. Unfortunately, Mr Pooh died quite young and we have not been able to bring ourselves to take on another cat since - so I visit Darling Millie's blog instead, and from there, found this blog. It's a comfort and a joy to me to know that there are so many other people in the world who bond so deeply with their cats.

that last shot is gorgeous. He looks so dreamy and relaxed in his new surroundings.
It can be hard to help Marley "find his voice" but once you do he'll be off & running stealing the blog!

We thinks Marley must be a professional cat model. The camera adores him.

Glad everyone is getting along. Bet you get a picture of the three sleeping together sooner then you think.

Marley, you sure have a kissable face!
