Marko's Meow

Posted on: June 3, 2009


Well, we moved to the new house this past weekend. It is pretty great. We especially love exploring the basement, though Mama has no idea why. She says at least we’re cleaning it for her as we come up covered in cobwebs. Anyways, this past weekend we had a friend staying with us too, our friend Crystalee. And she missed us so much when she left that she made us these!



Marko, Ani, & Marcel

It’s time for Tuxie Thursday in which the now TWO tuxedo cats of the house are featured on the blog. The amazing duo of Marko and Marcel. Without further ado:

Also, for Two Times Tuxie Thursday, please check out this link of a whole pack of tuxies! I can’t read the Japanese, but the photos and videos speak for themselves!

First up, our about pages have been updated to reflect one about page for each. Hence: About Marko, About Ani, and  About Marcel.

We are living very happily together and will include some recent pictures in this post.

Furthermore, we may be facing a big move soon in the future. Hopefully it will include a big backyard for us to lay out in the sun.

Yours Truly,

Princess Ani =^-_-^=

Bonjour everyone, I am le French jazz cat, Marcel Marceau. I am not a mime but I am often quiet like one because I am shy and reserved. I am frightened around new people, but I was never scared of my new family. I am the middle cat in terms of age, Marko is my big brother and Ani is my little sister. I am the third cat to arrive in the family, though. I was already 10 months old when I came home, whereas Marko and Ani came at 3 and 2 months of age, respectively. I love my new family and my new home. My favorite spots to take a nap are under the bed and in the dirty clothes pile in the closet. It is very comfortable. At nighttime, I like to sleep in the big bed with everyone. I am definitely a lover, not a fighter. I take the human’s face between my paws (sans claws) and pull her in for a kiss. I like to give her kisses on the nose and cheeks. Marko, Ani, and I all take turns grooming each other. I like to play with Marko and Ani. Nice to meet you all! Enchante!



Marko and Marcel playing

There is a third cat in the pride! I first met Marcel at the Western PA Humane Society whilst cat cuddling. Marcel’s kennel card noted that he was timid and shy but great when he warmed up to you. It took no time at all for him to warm up to me. We connected instantly and he did not want to go back into his kennel after our play time and tried to hold on to my shirt. He called out after me just like Marko had done. He’s right between Marko and Ani in terms of age, and I thought his personality would fit beautifully. I took him home the next day. After an adjustment period and gradually introducing the trio, they are getting on wonderfully. I have caught them grooming each other, playing together, and sleeping near each other. All three have slept with me in my bed at the same time. They think we may need a bigger bed.
