Something About Marvin 11

My sister thinks I woke Marvin from a catnap, and he doesn't look happy about being disturbed . She thinks it looks like he's trying to decide if he wants to expend the energy to swat at me, or if he should just go back to snoozing in the sun.  

She got part of it right.  I did wake Marvin, though not on purpose.  As soon as I got close he opened his eyes in anticipation of a treat.  He was kind of miffed when he realized no treat was forthcoming.  No swatting was attempted.  

When we first got this cat tree Marvin would not use the top tier.  We got it so he could look out the window, but he just couldn't seem to figure it out.  It might have been because the top perch is somewhat too small for him, or it could have been because it is slightly tilted.  Whatever the reason, it takes up a lot of floor space for something that was only being partially used.  

We eventually resorted to treats to tempt him to the top level.  Once he realized there's a lot to see from the window he started using his tree regularly.  He still expects treats when he gets there, but he can usually be distracted by all the things happening outside.

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