About Me

Active within 876 Days

Hi! My name is Marley-O and Julius

I am an American Shorthair from Marshall, MN

Nicknames: Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum, Partners in Crime, the Innocent Criminals, our boys

Age: 15 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: They keep me sane and happy. Well, at least happy.

My favorite tricks and treats are: They are great at catching (and eating) flies and other bugs. Marley is accomplished at 'fetch' and can open cupboard doors. and They love tuna, shrimp treats, catnip, chicken, turkey, cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, and any food left unattended.

Where I hang out: They like to lounge on their cat tree, cuddled up to pillows on the bed, on top of the kitchen cupboards, in their carriers, in the computer chair, in my wheelchair, on the window ledges etc.

My favorite grubs: They love canned food and treats!

My pet peeves: They don't like to be separated, they don't like the vacuum, and they compete for attention.

What I love about my owners: "She takes good care of us, feeds us, brushes us, gives us treats, and plays with us."

My cat hobbies: They love to play, nap, eat, nap, wrestle, nap, eat, nap, play, nap,...

Pet motto: If it hits the floor, it's mine. (Even if I knocked it down there.)

There is so much snow outside! We are happy to be inside where it's cozy. Except for 2 days the fire alarms have been malfunctioning and making AWFUL noise every so often. It hurts our ears and we hide. Sheesh! Can't a cat have a relaxing holiday season? If we don't get out 16-20 hours of sleep a day... well, let's just say it's not pretty. Happy holidays everyone!

Thank You ♥
Thank you for your visit and sweet words of congratulations. I am honored to be the Angel COTD and Mom and Dad are so happy to see my face in the COTD Window today! Now, I have a COTD Badge and The Cat Rescue of the Day Badge, too!

This is a day to honor the love and friendship that I shared with my family. I am at the Bridge now, but I will always be remembered with much love, in their hearts.

A Bridge Called Love
It takes us back to brighter years,
To happier sunlit days
And to precious moments
That will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
Are treasured in the heart
To bring us always close to those
From whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories
From earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love.

Thank you so much for joining in my celebration today. Tonight, the Angels will be partying and putting on a celebratory light show. Just look up to the night sky and we will all be there, twinkling and sparkling with our love for our families.

With much love and many Angel hugs from the Bridge of Love,
Angel Lucy ♥

WHEN GOD MADE CATS:When God made the world,He chose to put animals in it,and decided to give each whatever it wanted.All the animals formed a long line before His throne,and the cat quietly went to the end of the line.To the elephant and the bear He gave stretgth,to the rabbit,and the deer,swiftness,to the owl,the ability to see at night,to the birds,butterflies,great beauty,to the fox, cunning,to the monkey,intelligence,to the dog,loyalty,to the lion,courage,to the otter,playfulness.And all these were the things the animals begged of God.At last He came to the end of the line,and there sat the little cat waiting patiently.What will YOU have?God asked the cat.The cat shrugged modestly,Oh whatever scraps you have left over.I don't mind.But I'm God,I have everything left over.Then I'll have a little of everything please.And God gave a great shout of laughter at the cleverness of this small animal,and gave the cat everything she asked for,adding grace,elegance,and for only her,a gentle purr that would always attract humans and assure her a warm and comfortable home.But he took away her false modesty.God gave us a great gift when he made our furbabies,love them with all you have! I'M ONLY A CAT:I'm only a cat and I stay in my place,up there on your chair,on your bed,on your face!I'm only a cat,and I don't finick much,I'm happy with cream,and anchovies,and such!I'm only a cat,and we'll get along fine,as long as you know I'm not yours,you are mine!!HI,Spongie here!Got to go out for a small walk,nothing exciting going on out there yet,the wind was blowing the leaves all over,so mom brought me back in.Ate some treats,wadded up moms table cloth ,Wicket was in MY box of papers,but I did not even wack him this time,mom said Spongie are you ok,no wacking?Yes mom,I'm being a good boy so I can go back out later in that bright sunshine!Ate some treats,then ran through the house really fast,and got on the bed with Blossie for a catnap,and have lots of energy for wacking later,hehe,love you.,Spongie.HI,Quiet here now,now,all sleeping,Wicket did not even get a wack,hehe,love you,The Gang.

Hi Marley-O and Julius,
That sure sounds like a Russian Blue to me. The vet says I'm pretty big for a young lady. I'm laid back if I am with my humans and there aren't any other cats around. I tend to get into fights with the other cats in the family. One thing us Russian Blues tend to do is pick out a family member and claim that person as our human. We follow that person around and favor that person over the other people in the family, although we are still civil to the rest of the family. I chose mom and bonded with her when I was a kitten. It sounds like those kitties have Russian Blue in them, and they sound really cool. Hope you are having a good day. Peppermint

Still 92/77, 93% humidity.No rain in weeks.Brown lawns and gardens. The kits deal with the hot weather by sleeping all day and pestering dad all nite. This is normal when it is cooler.When dad tried to get water for coffee this morning, Zippi Taz and Missy were yowling in the sink. A frustrated dad turned on the water and got water for his coffee in the bathroom.We are slowly taking over the house except for the payments,meow.

Hi Marley-O and Julius,
Thank you so much for such a wonderful message. It makes me feel good that I could spread the word about FIV and how to deal with it. Hopefully, one day, diseases like FIV and FeLv will be eliminated. I did have a wonderful life, especially after my furever family adopted me. I will always be a part of them, forever. Thank you for the compliment on my page. The Irish kitties did the artwork on my picture and they did a beautiful job. I am enjoying my shiny, new badge and want to continue to raise awareness of FIV. Thank you again for your support and your caring. Purrs and Headbonks, Angel Slinky

Hi Marley O, Julius and family,
How are you today? I am catpaigning for ACOTD and wanted to take this opportunity to raise awareness of FIV. I have just recently crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge in June of this year due to complications from FIV. I was FIV positive, but was able to live for 6 years with few problems. A cat can be FIV positive and not show symptoms for quite a while. What happens with FIV is that it breaks down the immune system and the body cannot fight off bacteria that a normal body would wipe out easily. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and is similar in some ways to HIV, but in others, is very different.

Humans cannot get FIV, it is only spread to other cats.

FIV is spread through bite wounds from an infected cat, however a pregnant FIV cat can spread it to the kittens in the womb.

There is no cure for FIV.

A cat that is FIV positive may not show any symptoms for a number of years.

When symptoms do show up, they can include weight loss, gingivitis, stomatitis (mouth sores), digestive trouble, kidney trouble and other signs throughout the body.

There is a vaccine available, however it does not cover all strains of FIV and cats that have been vaccinated will show a false positive, meaning the test will indicate it has FIV even though it doesn’t.

Cats kept indoors are much less likely to be infected with FIV.

Cats should be neutered, unneutered male cats are more aggressive, they get in more fights and are at a much higher risk of getting FIV.

FIV-infected cats should be kept indoors, they should be fed a balanced diet, should not eat raw foods such as meat and eggs and should visit their vet for wellness checks.

We got most of this info from Cornell’s site on FIV and from Wikipedia and from information our vets gave us.

Mom took a lot of pictures of me because my time was limited. If you like, you can see my scrapbook at 14037. You all have a wonderful day.

Hey there M & J!
Well, Wilber Wilby was abandoned as a wee pup on a freezing cold rainy 3 day weekend in early February. He was crying and hiding out on the cul de sac we live on. Everyone was concerned and tried to figure out where he came from, offering food and shelter. He was too terrified to trust anyone but kept running up to Mom & Dad's porch crying as if he wanted in. They would open the door and he'd run away to hide under cars. He was so small and short haired everyone was worried about his survival. Finally, after 2 nights outside, he cried to Mom to take him. She quickly took him to the area vet that does shelter work where it was discovered he had no microchip, no id, and barely about 9 weeks estimate. Being an apparent min pin/chi mix, the vet concluded he was probably dumped and would not have made it outside much longer. Mom then posted online (shelter lost and found), filed a found report at city pound & shelter and posted on Craigslist, double checking with all area lost postings on shelter, craigslist and vet's office. In the meantime, Mom fed him and potty trained him. He quickly decided our Mom was his Mom! After a few weeks, Mom agreed with the vet to adopt him. He received all his shots and thrived in our home. We saved his baby teeth too! In late July, he had his big boy surgery at which time he was microchipped. His name Wilber Wilby Hernandez is due to his namesake -- William Wilberforce of England who helped abolish slavery in England and also championed humane treatment of animals! Of course, Hernandez he got from our Dad! We're just glad he is smaller than us! Also, we like sampling his food sometimes even though we have our own! Hugs, Fidel & Che!

Enjoy your summer walks!
Dear Marley O & Julius! It was great hearing from you. That is great that you are both leash training and walking around the neighborhood being neighborly! That is so cool! There was a puppy abandoned in our neighborhood early February so Mom had to feed him. You can guess what happened next! Yup! We now have a barking brother, Wilber Wilby. At least he is smaller than us, and we like it that way!! We watch him on a leash and harness. When we were kittens Mom tried it on us but we weren't too cooperative. We preferred the stroller!!! Good thing your Mom isn't crocheting for you. Our puppy has short hair and when it is cool he has to wear a t-shirt or something. He thinks he's tough when he sports his black Harley Davidson t-shirt! Keep on rockin' and give us a meow when you get a break from life! Hugs, Fidel & family!

Boys...
What a nice surprise your visit is! We're guilty of not being on CC as much, so we underestand not blogging. Congrats to your mom for all her hard work in with schooling - oh so very important, you know! Mom is on summer break - school around here begins the end of August. Me, I'm hiding under the bed because the plasterers are here, but Robbie is helping them. He's using his tail to put a nice pattern on the walls :-)
Robbie is trained on a leash, but me, I'm waaay too proud to be seen in such a silly contraption. I get to go out on supervised trips to the yard, and I'm happy with that. Good luck with your training! Keep in touch...Muffin

Come visit me, Robbie #71781 & Muffin #6810.

Hi O's
Dad woke this morning at 600 am, Zippi was chasing her tail by dads head. Yesterday Taz woke him at 400 am making biscuits on his back.It has been rainy and gloomy all week, but only in the low 80's. Dad is going to the club tonight if it doesnt rain. He had a brother in the club who is a sniper in Afganastan. His Humvee was hit by a car bomber and his partner was killed. He sustained injuries too. We are waiting to see if he is coming home. This is his 4th purple heart.We think he has done enough.Time for a sunshine gang nap. Purrs and a vote from all of us.

Come visit me, Ole Gray, Zippi, Taz & Missy.

Who is the cotm candidate, no one told us. Dad was outside planting flowers and working in the yard. He came in all stinky and wet. He chased us all, picking us up one at a time and rubbing us with his wet shirt, yuk, yuk. We will get back at him.Dad also had a party here last nite. When he got up this morning, no noise, no kitties.OMG where are they. OG and Zippi were in the garage, Missy was on the porch. Taz was no where in sight. We looked thru the house and finally found her in the a/c closet asleep on the shelf.Dad is shining up his cabinet as it took a beating last nite,mol. Purrs, hugs and a vote fur ya.

Hi Guys
It is so hot, we think our dad is losing weight. Missy escaped last night into a heavy rain. Dad chased her around the yard and gave up. She was soaking wet sitting outside the door, but ran off when the door was opened. Finally dad cracked the door and opened a fancy feast can. He was knocked down by a wet black and white rocket. The rest of the crew has been busy tearing up the house. OG, upside down somewhere. Taz and Zippi playing tag and wall running. Dad has been drinking lots of fluids because of the heat. (any excuse for a frosty beverage.)Rain again for today. Dad has planted alot of flowers so he wants the rain. Purrs and hugs to all from the sunshine gang

Come visit me, Ole Gray, Zippi, Taz & Missy.

Hi Guys
Dad has a sign in his clubhouse which says. All gave some, Some gave all. They are a national Vets org. and have many fallen friends.Muggy, 90, cloudy, rain is coming. Dadcut the lawn, swept the driveway, trimmed some trees and headed for the cabinet. Missy was sleeping on top of it. How did she get out??. Zippi and Taz are unconscious in cat tree 1 and 2. OG is in a food coma on dads bed. Missy is back in the sink and dad is into the ice cubes and cabinet blends. He and Jack are great friends.

Been in the upper 90's the past 2 weeks, today was cooler at 86. Things are going great here, hope all is well with you. Another hot one here.Dad was gone all day to the armed forces day, they had a great time. Dad washed the kitchen floor yesterday. Tonite when he came home there was. 2 pens, 3 notes off the fridge, 3 large furballs, and two vomit places. There was a piddle by the cat box which he didnt see till after.We always surprise dad when he goes for the day. Purrs to all from the sunshine busy crew.
