A new kitty once a week! Yup, we want YOUR cat photos and stories! Click here to find out how your cat can appear on Van City Kitty.
Brought to us by VIA reader Celia Chung, it’s Marvin:
Breed/Colouring: Domestic shorthair/grey tabby
Habits: Finding out the nearest surface in use, and then sitting on top of it; shredding papers (especially important ones); eating yummy treats; chasing strings; swatting bugs; staring down the neighbour’s cats.
Hangouts: the cat tree by the window; the couch; the computer chair (especially when it’s needed!); behind the computer monitor.
Other info: Marvin was born on a barn at a small town in New Brunswick. One by one his brothers and sisters were given away to other barns/farms to be barn cats, and he being the runt was left behind. Luckily he found his way to me, a bio grad student at the time, and began his cushy life as a house-cat. He’s named after Marvin the Paranoid Android, because when he was an 8 week old kitten he had the saddest little meow – which he still uses to beg for treats sometimes. Now, at 5 years old, Marvin boasts a luxurious grey coat, a sweet personality, and the loudest purr you’d ever hear!
