This is Marilyn!a.k.a. Mare-Bear. She is probably about 13 or 14 years old and is our newest clinic cat. As per our usual, when our former clinic cat, Mia, passed, even though we were all heartbroken--it was only a matter of days before the Universe presented us with another ancient feline that no one seemed to want anymore.Well, guess what? We wanted her. And she has fit right in. Ever since day 1, in a very un-cat-like manner, she waddles around, completely unafraid of her new surroundings and loud noises and strangers scooping her up and flipping her upside down to give her a belly rub. She was so unconcerned (esp. about the noises) that at first we thought she might be deaf. But no, that's apparently just Marilyn.This picture is flattering (she likes to pose), but she's actually as round as a basketball and unfortunately has extremely arthritis knees. But she's so happy. She is one of the most content cats I've ever met. Every morning she shuffles around to get the most pets per person. I am proud to say, I'm one of her favorites. We give her therapy laser sessions for the knees and of course, all the pets possible.Hope you are hangin' in there and maybe not descending into madness like I am. These times, sheesh!
