Arrival Story:
When he was about 6 weeks old, he came to our house in a torrential rainstorm. He meowed loudly until we opened the door. We took him in and were going to find his owner when the storm let up. After the storm, we went door to door until we came to the end of our street. The lady that answered the door said she saw someone drive by and drop this kitten and another one out while the car was still moving at about 20 miles an hour. So we adopted Marco and when his brother did show up, we found a good home for him. I took Marco to the vet and he was dewormed, given his shots and ear mite medicine. The vet said he was about 6 weeks old. Marco is our first cat. He is a snuggler, but he takes forever to get comfortable. He climbs in your lap and goes around and around trying find a comfy spot. He is the patriarch of our cat family.

Well, I had to tell Marco goodbye this evening. He had the bad habit of running down the driveway to greet you while you were still driving. He would run right in front of the car. We always watched for him and slowed way down. Well, this evening, we saw him and we slowed way down, but not soon enough. The back tire got him, he only lived for about one minute after it happened. My husband was driving and he felt horrible. Marco was only 9 1/2 and he will be missed.


Marco feels much better

Marco is doing much better now. He is eating and moving around on his own. His boo boos are healing and he is doing fine. That ordeal was pretty scarey. I hope he will stay away from the road.

Today Marco is having a rough time. He is lethargic and his breathing is labored. He does not want to eat anything. He went back to the vet for more tests. The vet did another Xray. He still has fluid on his lungs, he spent another night at the vet.
