Something About Marvin 10

I just realized that I neglected to post a picture of Marvin last Monday!  I guess this not-working thing is messing with me more than I thought.

My sister chose this picture.  She thinks it looks like Marvin is trying to be a helpful "laundry fairy".  Something like the elves in "The Elves and the Shoemaker" I suppose. In her story, Marvin was struggling to fold those striped socks when I snuck up behind him.  The look on his face is one of displeasure, as now that he's been discovered he can no longer be the secret laundry fairy.  

The reality is that there was no sneaking.  Marvin blatantly hopped in the basket while I was folding laundry.  

Thankfully it was a load of dark clothing.  The black cat hair won't show up as much.  Our last cat was an orange-and-white, long-haired tabby.  We were covered in cat hair all the time.  We joked that our next cat would better match our mostly-black wardrobes.  Oddly, colour was the last thing we considered when we found Marvin.  His ability to blend with the laundry was just a happy accident.

If this isn't enough Marvin for you, you can follow him on Instagram.  He's @marvinmeowmeow.

    1. Folding. Biting. They're almost the same thing, aren't they?
