HI. I AM MARIN. I AM A RED AND WHITE WITH A LITTLE HEART PATCH ON MY BACK. I AM ABOUT ELEVEN YEARS OLD,MAYBE OLDER,I CAME FROM A SHELTER,SO NO ONE REALLY KNOWS.I LOVE MY DOG SISTER,SASHA. SHE IS THE ONLY GOOD ONE TO ME. I LIVE WITH MY FUR BROTHER LOUIE,AND JANE,WHO AUNT KARLI LIKES TO CALL MY NIECE(NOT MY BIOLOGICAL NIECE),BUT I DON'T THINK SO! JANE IS EVIL TO ME! I LIKE MY HUMAN MOM,SHE IS GOOD TO ME. AND I LIKE MY AUNT KARLI. I CALL HER AUNT,SINCE HER GRANDMA IS MY MOM. I LOVE MY AUNT KARLI. WE NOW SHARE SOMETHING THAT MAKES US EVEN CLOSER THAN WE WERE BEFORE. WE HAVE LOST OUR DAD. KARLI'S DAD,WHO DIED IN AUGUST,WAS MY DAD. HE WAS MY OWNER,AND I LOVED HIM. HE HAD ALWAYS HAD CATS,BUT HIS CAT AIKO AIKO DIED IN 2004,SO IN 2007,HE DECIDED TO GET ANOTHER CAT. HE HAD BEEN TAKING CARE OF A STRAY CAT WHO HAD KITTENS,BUT ONE DAY SHE DISAPPEARED. SO,IN 2007,THE DAY AFTER MOM'S BIRTHDAY,SHE AND HER DAD WENT TO THE POUND,SAME PLACE WHERE SHE GOT HER CAT,HERMIE FROM,AND FOUND ME. KARLI WALKED PAST MY CAGE,AND THEN KEPT WALKING. I MEOWED. I LOVED HER ALREADY. "PLEASE TAKE ME HOME! I NEED A HOME!" I KEPT MEOWING TO HER. SHE STOPPED,AND ASKED IF SHE COULD HOLD ME. SO,SHE FOUND OUT I HAD BEEN AT THE SHELTER THE LONGEST. SHE KNEW SHE LOVED ME,AND THAT HER DAD WOULD LOVE ME,TOO. SO,I WENT TO LIVE WITH HIM. KARLI CAME AND VISITED ME LOTS,SHE WAS ALWAYS VERY SPECIAL TO ME. AND I LOVED MY LIFE. I LOVED HOCKEY! AND KARLI'S DAD DID,TOO. WE WOULD SIT IN FRONT OF THE TV,AND MY HEAD WOULD GO BACK AND FORTH,WATCHING THE PUCK. THEN,AFTERWARDS,I WOULD GO TO BED,AND CURL UP WITH HIS DOG,SASHA. WELL,AFTER DAD DIED,I BECAME KARLI'S GRANDMA'S CAT. I WILL ALWAYS BE SAD,MISSING MY DAD,AND I KNOW SASHA FEELS THE SAME WAY. SHE IS ALWAYS PACING AROUND,NOT SURE WHAT TO DO.(KARLI'S GRANDMA ADOPTED HER,TOO) SO,I TRY TO BE THERE FOR HER WHEN SHE NEEDS SOMEONE. MOM GOT HER A NEW DOG BED A FEW WEEKS AGO,AND SHE WAS TOO NERVOUS TO GO IN IT. SO,I CRAWLED IN IT,AND SNUGGLED UP WITH HER.(I HAVE PICTURES IN MY CATSTER PHOTOBOOK) IN THIS TIME OF SADNESS,WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER.
TAKE CARE,AND PLEASE,TRY AND RESPECT THE DOGS;THEY HAVE FEELINGS,TOO. PLEASE TRY NOT TO SWIPE AT THEIR NOSES,OR HISS AT THEM. INSTEAD,BE THEIR FRIEND. IT WORKS.
LOVE TO EVERYONE,CATS AND DOGS,MARIN
CURRENT MOOD:JUST THINKIN'.

I'm am sorry for the loss of your Dad, I'm sure he is missed alot. I'm sure by your gentle ways that you give much comfort to those around you, especially Karli's gradma and Sasha. We will purr for your family.
I am sorry for your loss. That must be stressful and confusing. Of we three, only Gabby remembers her family from before this one...
(and I know she walked about 'calling' out for them, mostly at nighttime when she first came to live with us.)
I am glad though, that you have Sasha, Karli and her grandmother near. They must be a great comfort to you.
So sorry you lost your dad. I kinda like the dogs too - but I try to keep it a secret.
Sorry for your loss. Some just don't understand. We pets grieve too! My Grammy thinks I might have loss my real owner, befor they adopted me, and that's what made me so depressed I stopped eating. So everyone and everyfury be kind to one another.
Have a great day.
Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda
Sorry about all the sad changes in your life. Hope that soon you will be readjusted and enjoying life once again. Nice that you have your doggy furbling to snuggle with ans share fond memories with, too.

Skylar:Thank you for your kind words. I love it when Karli comes over. She is still very sad,too,and she comforts me.I will always have an ache in my heart for the one that gave me my first home,my life,but I know that my friends and family will be there for me for as ever long as they can,and that is what keeps me going. Love,Marin
Sweets:Thank you for your kind words. I am so very sorry to hear that about Gabby,and I am glad that she has a new home,and someone that cares about her. Adjustments are hard for everyone. I not only went through my dad's death and the move to Grandma's,but I went through a lot of homes. My home before the pound,that didn't want me,then Karli chose me,and I thought she would be my owner,but she went home after settling me in,and I missed seeing her! Then,Dad moved out of his apartment,to ANOTHER apartment. And then he was at the hospital,and never came home. But I know grandma loves me,and I will be able to happily live out the rest of my days there. Purrs to you,love,Marin
Jezebel:Thank you for your kind words. YES,be kind to dogs! And don't keep it a secret! Dogs are always there for you,to strengthen you,and give you a lick from time to time! Sasha is the one who has helped me find my place again after the confusion,and I can't imagine my life without her!
Kibbles:Thank you for your kind words.I am sorry to hear that,and I hope your appetite is back. Take as much time as you need to grieve,but you also need to eat.There will be many family members here on earth that will miss you if you go home to be with one that has gone before you.We were scared that this was going to happen to Sasha. At first Sasha wasn't eating,but with my help,she is doing better.
Pipo and Minko:Thank you for your kind words. Yes,I am very glad that I have Sasha,and that she has me. SOme days I will feel down,and she will be there for me,and other days it will be viceversa. Thank you all for your love,love,Marin
