Marvin's life at the log cabin

Our cat Marvin just loves it at our log cabin. Today he would like to show what cabin life is like for him.


I like to relax at the log cabin and let everyone know that this is my chair.

I love getting into nooks and crannies to hide and then pop out to scare Shelley when she walks by!


Eating is a big part of my life at the cabin. I like to nibble all day!













Sometimes I go outside on the deck and dig in the snow. But in 5 minutes I'm crying to come back in. It's too cold!









My favorite part - receiving love and being held by my mommy! I've got her wrapped around my little paw.

It looks as if Marvin lives a very tough life at the cabin! I'm surprised you can get him to go up there.

That Marvin is a handsome guy! I love big cats. He's so lucky to have such a nice home to stay in and I definitely think he too would enjoy some guineas!

Marvin, I like your chair. I'm glad you are relaxing at the cabin. Right now I'm sleeping in my chair right next to my mom's here at the computer,... I told her what to type before i stretched, yawned and went back to sleep. See you again some time,... Middy.

Pam at Antique or Not said...

Marvin looks a lot like our former cat Cessna (named after an airplane of course). He had a long and happy life with us in Pomona, California, but never had the chance to experience cabin life. He loved to ride in the car (unusual for most of our cats). He would sit on the dash and signal to trucker to honk back. I know he would have just loved mousing under the cabin float. Good for Marvin - getting such a wonderful life of leisure and a full time job of loving you. - Margy

Brandi said...

I think in my next life I want to be a cat! They have it so good!

dAwN said...

Oh what a sweet kittie...I love the shot of it coming out of the canvasy storage container..
Glad you are feeling well and back in your cozy cabin...

Sarah said...
