He may look like a normal, everyday Orange Tabby cat, but this fellow has lot going on between those fluffy, white tipped ears.
Hailing from Manchester, UK, this gregarious ginger cat had a rather circuitous route to his forever home in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland. Marley and his sister and best friend, Dingo first came to North America with their first owners, a young couple starting their adult lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
Sadly, his owners divorced, and despite their best efforts, could not find housing that they could afford which would allow cats. They then contacted Pet Rehoming Network, and we tried diligently to find a new home in Arizona, to no avail. In the end, rather than these two kitties ending up in a shelter and potentially being euthanized, we had their owners ship Marley and Dingo to us here, in Newfoundland.
Marley emerged from his substantial crate, meowing at us, as if to say: “I’m here! We can start the party now!”. He was one of the most outgoing, friendly cats we have ever met. His sis, Dingo, immediately hid behind the bed, only to emerge after a few days when she new she was in a safe, friendly place. She and Marley used to cuddle up together and were deeply caring towards each other.
Sadly, Dingo developed a facial tumor and passed away (we had to have her humanely euthanized, which almost killed us), but Marley is definitely in his forever home, and we all cherish him.
He is a talkative and very affectionate cat. He loves to be cuddled like a Teddy Bear, and makes sure to give each of his 3 humans an equal share of snuggles every day. It’s truly amazing how one little rescued Orange Tabby cat has make such a difference in our lives.
We’re so happy to share Marley’s perspective on the world with you all here on Marley’s Cat Horoscopes!
